Sometimes The Best Way To Find Yourself, Is To Look Elsewhere


How does a normal, average guy get to grips with finding out the girl he’s been dating, used to be a guy…too?

I’m sure there’ve been reams written about this question – from all sorts of angles: his… hers… ‘society’s’… the religious and so-called ‘moral’ viewpoint – the indefensable ‘gay panic defense‘ – and also more typically, a plethora of ‘opinions’ about transgender people from an overwhelmingly ignorant, ill-informed cisgender peanut gallery.

Trouble is, when it comes down to it – nobody knows more about what it’s like to be a transgender person dealing with transgender issues and obstacles – or someone dating them, than the people dealing with it themselves.

FAQ’s Answered #5 Does Space Really Suck?


Today in a series of replies to FAQ (frequently asked questions) sent to me by fans (and sometimes not so much), I answer the question “Does space really suck?”

Fun Fact: All About Crabbygrass


Crabby-grass is a native plant-like animal form native to the planet Deanna, being essentially an animal which has developed remarkably plant-like characteristics. These characteristics enable crabbygrass to blend in remarkably well with ordinary grass and help it to all but disappear into wild grass and even urban lawns.

Crabby-grass has stalk and leaf-like appendages, and even grows seasonal flowers, by which it reproduces by means of wind or insect pollination, and sometimes, even by direct contact with its partners. The creatures generally resemble clumps of thick, green grass – making them appealing, unfortunately, to herbivorous creatures. The creature’s flowers develop into seed-pods, which can be made to rattle when the creature becomes angry and shakes them, usually as a warning. More
