What can i do to make my wife happy again
I admired him because he refused to let gay men off the hook. He didn’t pander. He made no excuses. He didn’t preach to the choir, as so many victimologists do; he screamed at it, partly because he knew how to do that and partly out of frustrated love. So many he came of age with were still riven with self-hatred; they were, in Larry’s view, having too much meaningless sex, because they had internalized a lack of self-worth; they were too quick to please those in power; they were “faggots” as his first novel brazenly declared — lacking the nerve or integrity to become fully realized human beings. “I hope I want for them what they want for themselves, which is to be equal,” Larry told me simply all those years ago. “We don’t have the rights we deserve and we have to look first to ourselves to see why, rather than blame an obviously culpable system.” Yes, he believed the system was rigged against us, but he also saw the … [Read more...] about Larry Kramer’s Secret
Hill, who now teaches law at Brandeis University, was picked in December to lead a newly formed commission on sexual harassment in the entertainment industry; in a recent interview with Mayer for The New Yorker, she emphasized how crucial believability is to the narrative of cases like hers, and, in Mayer’s words, “Until now, very few women have had that standing.” Thomas, meanwhile, sits securely on the U.S. Supreme Court with lifetime tenure. He was 43 when he faced what he famously called “a high-tech lynching” before the Judiciary Committee. After that, he vowed to friends, he would serve on the Court another 43 years. He’s more than halfway there. His record on the Court has been devastating for women’s rights. Thomas typically votes against reproductive choice: In 2007, he was in the 5-4 majority in Gonzales v. Carhart that upheld the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003. He voted to weaken equal-pay protections in the Court’s … [Read more...] about Do You Believe Her Now?

My wife Megan and I, we were both at UNC Charlotte at the same time (she graduated in 2006), but we didn’t meet until 2011 when I was stationed at Robins. We met through a mutual friend in Atlanta at Pride — and she wanted nothing to do with me. So I just kept making excuses to be near her, and we became friends, and that was fine for awhile. But she still didn’t want to date me. Then I went to Germany for a few weeks with a friend of mine who was stationed there, and I didn’t talk to Megan while I was gone. When I got back, she called me and she said, “I think we do need to go on a date.” I was like, “Yessss! Not talking to you worked!” From that point on, we’ve been inseparable. ... We got married in 2014 in D.C. ... I carried our first child, Shiloh (born in March 2017), then she got pregnant and carried our twins (Scarlett and Eden, born in December 2018). … [Read more...] about Air Force major reflects on‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ cancer
