Coming Out: Still Scary After All These Years

My hope is that Rabbi Steinlauf’s brave revelation will not only inspire youth to have hope, but will move parents to fully embrace their children and to recognize that an honest path is a righteous one, and ultimately the only one worth living, even if it isn’t the one they had planned for them.

Which Disney Princess Would You Do?

Ever play the game Ginger vs. Mary Ann, where you have to choose which Gilligan’s Island character you’d rather get with? That was never an easy call for me. I dug Ginger’s whole insatiable nympho thing, but she lacked in the substance area. Mary Ann seemed like a solid person, […]

Eating Out with the French

It’s a simple story of first love. Girl meets boy. Girl is disenchanted. Girl meets girl. Girl goes down on girl—many, many times. Girl loses girl. Simple in some respects, perhaps, but the experience of Blue is chockfull of the delicious complexity of awakening, first love, first loss, coming of […]

Where is the Outrage Over India?

Love is, once again, a criminal activity in India. On Tuesday, India’s highest court restored an insane colonial-era law banning consensual sex between members of the same gender and making it a crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison. In its ruling, the Supreme Court Justices tossed out […]

Lessons in Transphobia

Driving my seven-year-old to art class this last week, we saw someone walking by on the sidewalk whose gender appeared to be ambiguous. When we passed by, my daughter asked: “Was that a boy or a girl?” “You know, I don’t know. Maybe a boy or a girl. Or maybe […]
