Ask me anything
Oppressed groups are frequently placed in the situation of being listened to only if we frame our ideas in the language that is familiar to and comfortable for a dominant group. This requirement often changes the meaning of our ideas and works to elevate the ideas of dominant groups.

It is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-11 store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America.

  • Nurse: "Sorry your boyfriend couldn't wait for you in the waiting room, it makes women feel uncomfortable."
  • Me: "He wasn't my boyfriend and I don't see how it would make them uncomfortable, but that's my opinion. He was here for moral support. I understood, and so does he."
  • Nurse: "So he's your...."

A Jewish Reading Guide for Pride Month →



Joy Ladin, David Levithan, Lillian Faderman and others list their top three Jewish LGBTQ books.

Jew books! After my awful mystery novel I’m reading, I spy some new readings in this list. Heavy on the G and a little L, there is one long T book. Balancing on the Mechitza by Noach Dzmura is listed twice. It is worth checking out.
