A Wee Breather

Well, Translesbigayapalooza absolutely "tuckered me out" this year! And yes, that's a "t" not an "f" -- get your minds out of the gutter cuz yer crowdin' me!

So I'm going to take a wee breather and not blog this month, although I'll still come around and read your blogs as usual.

See you in August!

Fixing Blogger's Comments Issue

I know everyone using the Blogger platform HATES the fact that comments no longer show up in our email accounts. It seems this change resulted from Blogger's adjustments to its privacy settings.

Have you heard how to fix it yet? If not, here's what you do:
  • on your Blogger dashboard, click on Settings on the left sidebar;
  • then click on Email;
  • in the Comment Email Notification box, delete your email address;
  • click on Save Settings up in the right hand corner (don't skip this step!);
  • then go back to the Comment Email Notification box and type in your email address again;
  • then click on Save Settings again (don't skip this step!);
  • you will immediately receive an email from Blogger in your email account asking you to subscribe to notifications -- click on "subscribe" in that email;
  • and that's it! You will begin receiving blog comments in your email account once more!
Many thanks to Diana of Nana Diana Takes a Break and Ivy of The Happy Whisk who both informed me of the solution!

And thanks to Infidel753 for noting a variation in the procedure if you use comment moderation, as follows:

"For those who use comment moderation, the process is slightly different -- Under "Settings", you click on "Posts, comments and sharing" and then follow basically the same steps."

A Beautiful Rainbow of Diversity!

But despite the incredible DIVERSITY of our LGBTQ+ community, you know there's ONE thing that we ALL love to do . . . .

"Women, Women Who Love Women"

". . . are the happiest women in the world . . . ." Isn't that how the old Barbra Streisand song goes?

Well, it does in MY head! Screw what anyone else remembers.

Now let's hear it for Lez Girls!

Back in MY day, you only had to recruit ONE straight woman to get your toaster oven. I guess they've upped the ante now. Probably because SO MANY want to convert, it's hardly even a challenge anymore.

I've got MY merit badge, Sistahs! DO YOU???

The Culture Wars Are Not QUITE Over Yet

Today, three choice tidbits from the ongoing Culture Wars . . . .

First, a noted enemy of the LGBTQ+ community passed away just last year -- Joseph Nicolosi, creator and promoter of so-called "reparative therapy" or "ex-gay therapy." Our community has long fought against his erroneous and harmful theories, which are really just old-fashioned "repression" and "oppression" dressed up in fancy-schmancy pseudo-scientific bigotry.

I thought the following brilliant tweet very pointedly applied his simplistic solutions to his own situation!

Secondly, there's some notable candidates running in the US midterms!

You loved her on Sex and the City, now hopefully Cynthia Nixon will soon be Governor of New York!

And I heard about this great guy running for Governor of Maryland thanks to Frank at Reluctant Rebel. He's got one of the best and funniest campaign ads I've seen in a long time!

Thirdly, gay wedding cakes! Need I say more?

And here's how straight allies can help!

But *gasp* here's the worst cut of all!
