Lashings of Ginger BeerPosted by Lashings of Ginger Beer

Zemirah Moffat's Visual Anthropology PhD looked at radical queer ways of being in London's Club Wotever. She presented her research through a film, "Mirror Mirror", and a text, "One Queer Gift". Both of these can be seen on her website at queergiving.co.uk

Striking a Pose (Women and Fantasy Covers) - Jim Hines tries to replicate the poses of women on the front covers of fantasy novels, and finds them quite painful. This reminds me of Rion Sabean's "Men-Ups".

Regender - a web service which genderfucks the internet. We love its introductory text:

Welcome to a little experiment in webpage translation. Have you ever wondered...
  • What would the world look like if the two sexes switched places?
  • What would it look like if English had genderless pronouns?
  • What would it look like if English identified races the way it identifies gender?
Language has power.
