Joannegrrl Lives Again

Unfortunately, the blog name was taken... and basically empty. Grr. Ah well, what ya gonna do? I closed down my old blog because I wasn't maintaining it and the software was so massively out of date that I just didn't want to bother managing it anymore.


So, now I'm back and on Google. I'll be spending some time bring some old content back and bringing it up to date (some was really, really, dated) and adding some new content as I go. I haven't been actively writing again, so that's not really in my planned cards at this time, but for now I can start to blog on the gender issues and events that interest me.

Sometimes the stove is hotter than you expected

So, I recently decided that I would dip my toe back into a Q&A site, Stack Exchange's Photography site, where I was once a moderator... turns out, the stove was hot and I got burned by it. Content warning: transphobic slurs in an image.

Isn't that a shame? Well, anyways...

It seems like a neverending stream of hate is directed towards us in the LGBTQ+ community and time and again we're told that it's just a fringe, that the majority supports us. Where is that majority? They feel very absent to me. 

Gender Questing

I want to talk about gender questing as a bit of a follow-on from my recent post about using "identifies as" with respect to gender.
