I love your blog

Bo at The Expvlsion of the Blatant Beast has kindly nominated Nemeton for the "I love your blog" award.

I have already nominated eight blogs at MetaPagan, so I won't repeat those nominations here, much as I love those blogs.

So, here are some more blogs that I love:

{feuilleton} - a blog mostly about art, films, and writing, with occasional forays into the occult & the world of gay. Now returned after a brief hiatus due to a technical hitch (that's good, I was getting withdrawal symptoms).

Curious Expeditions - a blog about the weirder corners of life (and death), including Victorian mourning customs, tragic songs, stuffed things, hair sculpture, and weird things in jars in museums.

The Silver Eel - thoughts on literature and life

The Woolamaloo Gazette - more thoughts on literature and life

Notes from underground - blog by Methodius about Orthodoxy, Inklings, and South African politics. Fascinating.

Liz Williams: journal - an SF writer and Druid in Glastonbury

Kathz's Blog - a Quaker writing about pacifism, green issues and literature

Necropolis Now - this blog started as an exploration of funerary monuments, but has now broadened to art and goddesses

There are other blogs I enjoy reading from time to time, but these are ones that I visit regularly.

The rules are:

1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Link to the person from whom you received the award.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Put links to those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs nominated.

NB - it is not compulsory for nominees to also nominate blogs.

Don't you mean 'the Mad World of Gay'? - Attitude magazine's ghastly phrase (which I quite like ;))

Not my place to comment on its sanity or insanity, being only a bystander (can't someone invent a better word for "fag hag"?)

I'm disgusted. Is homosexuality still seen as being such a filthy thing that it even "taints" the friends of these people? I must be very lucky to be living in such a inclusive community in this town. (We are not entirely without our problems but they are pretty few.) Apart from my husband, some of the closest friendships I've had are with gays and I count more than one lesbian couple as friends. May I say right here that I find them to be generally more intelligent, interesting and creative than a hell of a lot of the so called "normal" members of society. So there. (Sorry, I'll get off my soapbox now.)

Oh, thank you very much!

I might bow out of the nominating others, however, I hate having to choose.

Taxonomy debates in the gay world are never-ending; some people I know won't say "gay" they prefer "queer". I try not to be so doctrinaire. However, I agree fag hag is rather crappy, do women really relish being called hags? None of my female friends do. Seems rather unbalanced as well, I don't recall hearing a term for straight men with lesbian friends. The Advocate invented the term "gay-adjacent" in 2002. How about that?

Yewtree said...

The term "fag-hag" was invented as an affectionate tease by the gay community, I thought. It was certainly used as such when it was applied to me.

Gay-adjacent - I like that!

Yewtree said...

Apparently the male equivalent is a "dyke tyke" (!)

Heya yvonne!

I see I'm a few days late, but I'm compelled--heh!

Bo said...

dyke-tyke!! I came up with that independently!!
