My nights, more often than not

Yes, that is a charging cable running from my computer to my phone because last night I worked until 6am and forgot to charge it.

Do You Admire the View?

We’re staying in South Bend for a couple nights to attend a family wedding. This view that looks like an artist’s rendering is from our room.

This might very well be all he does while we’re here.

The expression “openly bisexual”1 bugs me.

I know we’re still living in a world where coming out is difficult and fraught, and if LGBTQ people want to use that expression, it’s not my busines to stop them. But it sort of annoys me when it’s used in print or by straight people. Maybe I’m overly sensitive, but it always seems to backhandedly presume that some amount of shame is associated with being bisexual, and that this “openly” bi person is therefore being bold or transgressive.

Just because some parts of society will shame bi people doesn’t mean they have anything to be ashamed of. Maybe it’s time to retire “openly” as a modifier for people’s sexual orientation.

  1. See also “openly gay”, etc.
