Trans Telephone #gamergate

Telephone is a game played  in which one person whispers a message to another, which is passed through a line of people until the last player announces the message to the entire group. Errors typically accumulate in the retellings, so the statement announced by the last player differs significantly, and often amusingly, from the one uttered […]

That Awkward Moment…

So I have been home sick this entire week. Today, I go to the doctor and discover I have a double ear infection. Ouch. Anyway, being home sick means I have been watching a lot of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and reading publications I normally don’t – like Curve Magazine. I remember when […]

Originally posted on Hypotaxis:
*This piece was a collaborative effort between myself and the amazingly brilliant Phonaesthetica. (If you’re not reading her blog, you should, because she’s an incredible writer.) It’s review day.

What You Don’t Define, You Can’t Control

I have not wanted to blog at this blog anymore. “Bugbrennan” has been more effective beyond what I had intended when I started this effort a few years ago. Go ahead. Google it. Google “me.” You will see how awful I am, how much of an antagonist I have been. I am the most transphobic […]
