China is facing up to the AIDS problem but...?

This should get interesting, considering the Nile seems to have been running right through China in the past fifty years. I have NO idea why they titled it "too many men" O_o?;

Here is the artical from the correct url link. Japundit screwed up a bit.

I'm just now giggling over the "graduate homosexual course" line. I really need more coffee and to get to my class. I want to see the t-shirts spawned by that!

my money's on...

This came up at work today, and I instantly thought of this community.

Femmes vs. Bears Roller Derby.

Who's your money on?

And how great would that be?

EDIT: We were imagining wax-strips being involved :)

cause i think y'all are smart

and i have been thinking about this a lot lately:

i would like some feedback from beyond just the ftm and trans (and queer) community that i have contact with on this for my own edification. how you position yourself relationally to that community (ally, member, what-have-you) would be welcome info in this answer, but at your discretion of course.

1) how do y'all feel about the term 'transensual' or 'trans-sensual'?

1a) as an identity? as a modifying adjective to an identity?

2) do you feel that this term is different in essence from that of 'tranny chaser'? why?

sorry that i am not up to par with the usual clever posters. i simply don't have 5 questions, but then again, it's not quite friday either.

edited to say : how rude of me to ask for other people's positions and then not to disclose my own. wow. i suppose i was expecting mind reading at this late hour.

some of what i am is : a queer, poor, femme, daddy, ftm gentleman of color (with light-skin privilege). i do not mind being chased nor even objectified on occasion, as long as there has been some serious thought and decent analysis given to the whole matter by both parties. (or as long as i think you are terminally hot and there is no chance that i will ever see you again.) for the record i am quite unfond of the terms used in the first question.
