Queer Feminism at Marquette University

“To me as a queer activist and young scholar in the early 1990s, the term queer seemed to capture it all — the political urgency of combating heterosexism, my feeling and knowledge that the binaries of gender and sexual orientation were created through forced conformity and repression, the indeterminateness of my own experiences of gender […]

Welcome to 2016: ‘When the Insane Are Normal, the Normal Are Insane’

  In case you haven’t noticed, the world has gone crazy. We now live in some kind of alternative universe dreamed up by a science-fiction writer, and it’s comforting to know we’re not alone in feeling this way: Studies have produced little evidence that “gender reassignment” surgery yields mental health benefits for those who receive […]

Wisconsin’s ‘Sodomite Whorehouse’

Confirmed: Soccer Is Gay

  You may never have heard of lesbian soccer player Megan Rapinoe, who protested against the National Anthem because she hates America: U.S. soccer star Megan Rapinoe knelt during the national anthem [Sept. 4] before the Seattle Reign’s game against the Chicago Red Stars “in a little nod” to NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. . .

Never Trust a Bisexual

Has everyone forgotten the AIDS epidemic? It sometimes seems that way. Now that effective treatment means that HIV is not an automatic death sentence, and Obamacare requires insurance coverage for “pre-existing conditions,” some people seem to think sexual promiscuity is now basically risk-free, as if the wake-up call we got during the 1980s never happened.
