Jeff S: Hi Amy! I would love lunch at a podcast w/ u..I like the femme butch talk..But, labels are too much..We are all just people...The girl show won at Tila tequila-Kristie-was a femme.People assume feminity is structure in patriarchy. I dont feel that way. Yes, heteros dominate..But,us gays are getting higher up in positions.All these things ad up.There is less threatening. But, it is all good...For the guys,we just need to be polite and accepting of eachother and not judge-bear first smooth-and so on. The conferences are fun..But, let's not try to re-group people all over again..We already addressed us as gay vs straight.I just hope everyone apprecaites all of everyone else this 4th of July..Be safe and stay positive/happy..jeff
