Dear "JAT" (LGBT200 Teacher at the University of Maryland, College Park),
Well, the day has finally come to turn in my relevant coursework for LGBT200, and as we've discussed, I'm presenting it to you via Everything2.
Welcome to Everything2, which I think you'll find interesting
in its own right, above and beyond my contributions. Below, you'll find a list of my journal entries
specifically for this class. Some of the ones that are about a specific reading are titled differently
so that they better describe the subject of the article. Since it is possible for mutliple people to write
things in the same "node," be sure you are reading the one that I wrote, which is the one whose
author is listed as "ameriwire," which is my 'handle' on Everything2 (E2):
- First, an introductory entry, then:
What Gay Studies Taught the Court
Dissent in Ashcroft's America
Toward a Sociology of transgendered bodies
September 29, 2004
Surgical Assignment of biological sex in humans
First writeup regarding the "On the DL" article
Second writeup regarding the "On the DL" article
Re-Orienting Desire: The Gay International and the Arab World
Marketing automobiles to gay Americans
Gay and Lesbian Christians: Homosexual and Religious Identity Integration in the Members and Participants of a Gay-Positive Church
November 3, 2004
The Uses of the Erotic: The Erotic as Power
A dream I had regarding sex as power
A journal of my thoughts on Dec. 1
San Francisco as a gay city
- Hens Night
Sex education for the blind
- And, although this is mostly taken from my final paper, I've changed it a bit here on E2, so you might want to read
my writeup at Gay-coded advertisement.
Also, you may want to check out, "Ten Reasons Not to Move to Canada," which I have presented here on E2,
but I did not write it; I got permission from its author to post it here, so I'm not taking credit for
writing it, but I think you might find the author's argument interesting.
Now, you'll notice that all of the writeups on Everything2, (including mine), have "links" in them,
and these were all placed by me. Sometimes
they link to exactly what the underlined phrase says, but other times they link to someplace else, which I have
done to make an opinion statement of some kind, usually. For example, if you encounter the underlined word,
"sinister," it might link to the Everything2 node called "sinister," at which you can find the definition
of the word, and any other writeups that users have placed there. But since it is within my power, I might
occasionally—nay, frequently—link such references to the "George W. Bush" node, suggesting, of course
the obvious truth that George W. Bush is a clear sign of Armageddon's coming. (Ooh! There ya go,
I did it again; can't help myself).
Finally, if you are interested in perusing all of the writing I've done on Everything2, you can click here, and then click on the three-digit number in the middle of that page, referring to "number of writeups." That will present you with a list of all my writing here. Some of these writeups were for your class, some were for other classes; but the vast majority of them were for my own enjoyment (believe it or not).
Anyway, JAT, welcome once again to E2, and enjoy yourself; there's lots of great
stuff to read here.
