I have hope

It may seem dark now, with all of the news of yet a another assault on the rights of LGTBQ people, but I have hope.

Me Day

It's a "me" day today! Yay!

I don't get these too often, but its a long weekend and there isn't a whole lot of reason to be doing anything than enjoying the weather and relaxing. So, Joanne can come out to play!

I am in love with this shave cream

The name is, well, a bit on the *nudge* *nudge* *wink* *wink* side of things, given the history, but the Coochy shave cream is the best I have ever found for shaving my legs.

Polished

The history of nail polish is an interesting one; it goes back many thousands of years and was once worn by both genders. Today? It's very much a feminine choice and, while sometimes worn by men, it's not terribly common.

I don't often wear polish on my fingernails, primarily because I don't dress feminine for extended periods of time and it seems like a fair bother if it's just for a few hours. However, I wear toenail polish almost all the time.

This past week, though, I was on vacation and that vacation included extended time with my larger family. So, off came the toenail polish for what seemed a very long, and very less colourful, week. That time is past and a new coat of polish once again adorns my toes.

What's interesting, though, is I wonder how many might have said something should they have seen my colourful toes? I didn't stop shaving my legs, they're pretty obviously hairless, and nobody has commented yet. At this point, I almost have to ass…

What's in a name?

A really nice story about coming together as a couple at the start of a transition. I'm not going to go into detail, it's worth a read: After my wife came out as trans, we found her name together.

This is progress!

In what, I think, is a major signal of change comes from a great article in the Chicago Tribune: Boys are wearing U.S. Women’s National Team jerseys and that feels like progress. It is progress, huge progress I think, in starting to tear down the gender barriers that society has long put up. I'm not a soccer fan, but I think it's high time that a female sporting event was attracting as much attention as this one.
