    A brief interruption in our already scheduled program. No more deportations of young people!

    In the middle of a busy end of spring, I heard president Obama announcing his command to Homeland Security Agency to halt deportation of the children of undocumented immigrants younger than 30 years of age, law abiding and engaged into education. Right away, right wing politicians, including Romney, use this presidential action to attack Obama and to represent themselves as […]

  • Is Sex Overrated?

    Is Sex Overrated?

    (Published originally at Educate Your Thought) Sex has been the talk no one “should” ever have for centuries. Good sex, bad sex, no sex at all, lots of it. But certainly everyone without exception thinks about it. Good, sex, bad sex, no sex at all, lots of it. Everyone wants and enjoys good sex, but at some point bad sex […]

    I Know the Absolute Truth But You…

    It is so interesting how some of the aspects of a democratic society and process somehow fail to deliver what originally was intended as a the main purpose of a nation that serves, supports, and entitles every single citizen with the exact same rights. Those rights that were extensively examined by the founders of our nation and became the constitution […]

    The Internet: A blessing for many trans people but watch out! Wolves will prey upon a few!

    I became incredibly excited about the internet in the late 80s and early 90s when America Online and CompuServe were battling for the acquisition of new customers. At the time, I realized the possible impact the internet could have on civilization over time. Just the fact of having access to large data files with all sorts of information seemed a […]

  • A call to all Latin@ voters

    A call to all Latin@ voters

    We are about a year away from the presidential elections and although it may seem too early to start getting involved, this is actually the right time. We’ve already seen the Republicans feuding among themselves for the official party candidacy. Frankly, after what I’ve seen during the debates, even putting the best of each of the possible runners, there is […]

  • Being oneself is not easy, but being somebody else is too painful.

    Being oneself is not easy, but being somebody else is too painful.

    In my not so long ago, I was a person loaded with so many questions and literally no answers. It bugged the heck out of me because finding those answers, in my head, represented being who I am, becoming happier and find a sense of reliable peace. Therefore, without them I was in limbo. I wondered then “For how long […]

    No me eche inglés

    Ésta es una expresión usada entre los mexicanos, usando el clásico doble sentido por el cual el mexicano es caracterizado. Si lo pronuncias rápido (Nomeecheinglés.) te darás cuenta de cual es el doble sentido. ¿Y a qué se refiere? A la diferencia que existe hoy en día entre quienes sí lo hablan y los que no.

  • Más sexo y sexualidad

    Más sexo y sexualidad

    Son interesantes las repercusiones que el sexo y la sexualidad han tenido durante el transcurso de la historia humana. Desde el punto de vista antropológico, muchos estudios de este fenómeno, recaen en la necesidad de la creación de la sociedad como foco comunitario para el desarrollo y sobrevivencia de los diferentes grupos desde los inicios de la época tribal. Sin […]

  • Yo quiero …

    Yo quiero …

    Si mi titular te recuerda al chihuahua en la campaña de “yo quiero Taco Bell”, ¡no! A ese simpático pet no me refiero. Mi titular es acerca de tí, de ellos, ellas y nosotros, incluyéndome. Como sabrás, lo que tú quieres, lo más seguro es lo que yo, o ellos, ellas lo quieren. Estoy convencida que lo que todos queremos […]
