Convo between my 7year-old students today

  • Josie: I have a new crusshhhhh
  • Matt: Me too! On a boy!
  • Pearl: You're a boy with a crush on a boy?
  • Matt: Yeah he's really cute.
  • Pearl: Oh.
  • (pause for a bit)
  • Matt: Boys can like boys. I just can't marry him because boys can't marry boys.
  • Me: Yeah they can. You can marry whoever you want.
  • Matt: Really?
  • Josie: YEAH my tia has a wife so now I have a titi and a auntie.
  • Matt: Okay. Then maybe I'll marry him.
  • Dave: (from across the room) No you can't you're seven.
  • (Age was apparently the only foreseeable problem anyone of my elementary schoolers could see with gay marriage.)

Not much going on in Netflix-land this evening, because - gasp! - I was out of the house. I was attending the wedding reception of my friends Cathryn and Cara, and I’m not ashamed to say that I shed some tears during the speeches. Not because seeing anyone else happy merely emphasises the gaping…

NEW BAND OF THE DAY: THE SPOOK SCHOOL
Check out Paul Lester’s thoughts on the Scottish indiepoppers (who you can also hear below). CS


…weirdly patronising article, but I am grateful to be introduced to this band.

So here’s an article on that band I’m in. It’s largely positive, although I have a lot of thoughts on some of the things he says about the songs and trans/gender stuff (basically, cliff notes version: we say that a lot of the songs are about gender & identity etc because that is what they are written about…but the way I write, I am aware that my lyrics could be interpreted as being about something else. Is there some kind of duty for those writing from a trans* perspective to acknowledge the fact that, in general, most people are going to ‘misinterpret’* your songs and miss the gender stuff entirely? If I want to write about my trans* experience (and be open about doing so), as I did in ‘I’ll Be Honest’, do I have to be ‘obvious’ enough for everyone to understand that that’s what the song’s about? If not, is the song somehow less valid? That’s kind of the view I got from this article. Not quite sure how I feel about that, as of yet.) 
But hey - the picture above is hilarious. Comic Sans + The Guardian, how lovely. 
* I don’t actually think it’s possible to misinterpret a song. It means whatever you think it means, whether that matches the original intention or not. But I do think, at the same time, that people shouldn’t assume that their meaning is the only meaning, or what the song was originally written about (this makes sense in my head but not much written down.)
