  1. Jackasses. ‘MisterSister’ is a term of affection/solidarity gay men were using with each other 45 years ago. Christ Almighty!

  2. I’m tired.
    However having gone to college in Winooski, I find it interesting that there will be a gay/LGBTQ bar there. In 1966 there was a pizza/grinder shop and a Forest Hills Discount Store and not much else. We would walk the 1.5 miles to get a pizza on a Friday night – often in sub-zero temps. Also interesting is the fact that the college, even though it hasn’t moved, is now magically in Colchester, VT. Obviously a “classier” sounding town than Winooski.
    Thanks for the chance to reminisce.

    You’re never going to win this one, there are people that just want to be offended no matter what. Give them a million dollars and they will be offended because the bills are tattered or wrinkled and of course that’s racist.

    I’m not sure what to think about this one. Personally I don’t feel offended by the name. I am a Trans Woman. But if there are Trans people who are uncomfortable with the name then maybe it should be changed. You cannot please everyone. I get that. But we can at least try to minimise the amount of people we offend.

What do you think?
