This is my tumblr thing. Will the person who has the tumblr url with "thelinster" please fork it over? You're not using it anyway.
This started out as something else, but deleting past posts takes forever. :yawn:
Infographic of the Day: In which gay rights in the U.S. — marriage, adoption, employment discrimination protection, hate crime laws, and whether schools have regulations to ban harassment based on gender and sexual orientation — are broken down state by state (using rainbow colors, of course).
And it’s interactive!

Jimmy: Are you on facebook or any of that stuff?
Emma: No, I had to delete my facebook.
Emma: Because I got addicted to FarmVille. Have you see people that are like, “Dadada needs help building their barn. Donate a nail! Or a board!”
Jimmy: It’s a fake farm…
Emma: It’s a fake farm, but it doesn’t feel fake, Jimmy.
Jimmy: You’re getting crazy, you’re getting crazy!
Emma: I was leaving dinners… to harvest. Real dinners!

Seriously, guys, WATCH THIS.
I saw an article about this documentary on AfterEllen this morning. It will be airing tonight on PBS (there’s a link to check your local listings). I first heard the term “two spirit” a couple months ago while watching another documentary with Alwyn about religion. There was a segment in this documentary that talked briefly about the subject of the two spirit in Native American religion, and I remember going back and watching that scene over and over and just sitting there on the sofa with Alwyn trying not to cry. It was absolutely beautiful.
So when I saw this on AfterEllen, I knew I had to watch it. It looks a bit like The Laramie Project, except without all the actors from Lost. (Has anyone else noticed this? I swear, the cast in that film was like 70% people who would be on that show.) Anyway.
I’ve been struggling a lot with gender identity recently, and just watching the trailer was moving, uplifting, and heartbreaking. I can’t wait to see this film.
Bet you look pretty good from a few thousand miles away.
