Experts are calling the re-emergence of , a sexually transmitted disease, an epidemic. It can be devastating if untreated, but is easily curable in early stages. Here's how to understand your risk—and whether you might already be infected and not know it—and protect yourself.

looking for something to watch this weekend? "Trans People & Biological Sex: What the Science Says" started as a talk I've given at colleges & conferences, now updated & free for YouTube! addresses virtually all trans-skeptical talking points, as well as intra-community debates about "born this way" & "true trans":

"Cross dressing" isn't cross dressing at all.

Its just wearing clothes.

If someone wants to make up entirely artificial rules about what can and can;t be worn by certain people that's their prejudice, no one else's.

Moreover, so-called "cross dressing" says nothing about sexuality. "Cross dressers" can be gay, straight, queer, anything - even asexual. There's no direct correlation.

if you're tired of anti-trans activists who don't care nor know anything about biology wielding "biological sex" & "sex not gender" against us, this video addresses all their specious talking points. biology is far more complex than their cheap slogans...

...in a companion essay, "Why Are 'Gender Critical' Activists So Fond of Gametes?" I specifically address how gametes also show natural variation & how GC claims re: "what the science says" about gametes is heavily distorted... (no-paywall, please share!)

can often seem very sexless; there should be more driven by strange & confusing urges, more blood and bodily fluids, more earth & natural wonder, more overwhelming feelings of oblivion & the sublime, more decadence - and I don’t just mean some beats with a women’s orgasmic sighs over the top (there should be LESS of that…)

Here's why it's a mistake to think that the sex trade's adoption of technology is due to technophilia:

Today I'm writing about how sex selection emerged as one of the leading promises of 20th-c. biologists/eugenicists as they got to grips with sexological genetics. 😬

Water is a molecule with two hydrogens and an oxygen. Sometimes, instead of hydrogen it has deuterium, which has an extra neutron. This is heavy water.

It’s a kind of water because, while rare, it naturally occurs and when it’s in the mix it all acts, looks, and reacts just like “normal” water. We didn’t know what we called water was mostly “light water.” We learned there’s more than one kind, and that’s neat.

Heavy water is water.

This is a post about people.

The QAnon Anonymous crew have a new side project for patrons called "Perverts," which is all about sexual subcultures on the internet. They poke some fun but also shed some light, and it's done from a 'hey we're all a bunch of fucking pervs too' perspective.

Plus, Trickle Down podcast is back with a couple of fascinating episodes about how Gatorade hijacked the science of hydration. I always feel like I get my money's worth from this .
