Well hello there blog-o-sphere. I’ve missed you!
The past few weeks I’ve been working with an amazing designer on moving to a shiny, new and self-hosted version of #Upandcoming #Quarterlifer so thanks for all of your patience.
What does this mean for me?
Do people still use bookmarks? I’m inclined to think not. But, if for whatever reason do you, change the one for this blog to upandcomingquarterlifer.com. That’s right, I’m a big girl now so I have my own domain!
If you currently read my blog via email-only subscriptions — you’re good! The subscriptions will move over with the blog!
If you currently read my blog via Tumblr or my website — also peachy keen! I’ve re-linked everything so you should be able view my posts as normal.
If you currently read my blog via WordPress.com — might need to do some leg work. Posts will continue to show up in the reader, but you will no longer get email notifications of new posts. To get email notifications, go to my new blog at upandcomingquarterlifer.com and sign up using ‘Subscriptions’ on the right hand side.
What does this mean for #Upandcoming #Quarterlifer?
Same sassy content. New location.
…Also maybe now I can make money with this thing? What what!
Check out the new blog at upandcomingquarterlifer.com
After a(nother) long hiatus, #blogtops are back! This week’s topic? Grown-up!
*Sung to the tune of *
Something that I haven’t done yet is recipes and I recently embarked on a baking adventure that I thought I would share with you all.
Let’s first begin by saying that although I think I’m a somewhat half-decent cook but baking has never been something that I do with any regularity. A couple weeks ago though, the bee-eff and I, in our desires to warm ourselves up physically and spiritually (and get rid of my bunch of rotting bananas), decided it would be fun to make some banana bread. Bee-eff’s mother has a recipe (with modifications) that he likes so we started from there.
Today’s blog post was inspired by this article that’s been floating around my Facebook circles for the last few days: The Myth of the Fag Hag and Dirty Secrets of the Gay Male Subculture written by Rohin Guha. The article touches on a number of issues, but if I were to paraphrase (which, for the record, I try to avoid doing for the most part because it shortchanges people’s stories and experiences) I would say that it acknowledges the existence of a gay-male privilege and dominance which serves to dehumanize and objectify women. The article goes along to encourage gay men to break down their their adopted personas which have thus far served to perpetuate these views and treatment of women.This article really hit home for me, but maybe not in the way that you might expect.
