Lumbersexuals: The Triumph Of The Bears

Lumbersexuals: The Triumph Of The Bears | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Bears were partly a reaction to the whole ghastly metrosexual moment when straight men, for some elusive reason, decided to shave, product and starve themselves so as to look more like women (at the behest of those Queer Eye minstrels). And exactly the same kind of hirsute transition is now – a decade later – well under way among straights.

I regard this, in the spirit of Tim Teeman, first as a huge achievement for gay male America. Not only are we more comfortable in our own unpolished masculinity, we have created a cultural space for straight men to be the same. To put it another way: gays have helped redefine masculinity for straights – and for the first time, straights have not responded by feeling in any way tainted or discomfited by the association. In the process (don’t tell anyone), the gays have craftily transformed the public space by exponentially increasing the number of men we might have a hankering or a fetish for. Win-win!

Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance

Today is Transgender Day of Remembrance | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Around the world, the 20th of November each year is set aside to remember those who have died as a result of anti-transgender hatred or prejudice.

It’s a day of reflection as we remember people we have lost. But it can also be a day of celebration, awareness and renewal, as our communities join together in solidarity and hope for a better future.


Thursday 20 November 2014 is the 16th annual Transgender Day of Remembrance. The idea began in America back in the late ‘90s following the violent unsolved murder of trans woman Rita Hester, and the day is now marked in more than 20 countries across the world, including here in Australia.


The latest figures from Transgender Europe’s Trans Murder Monitoring project list 226 reported killings of trans people in the 12 months to October 2014. The update shows reports of murdered trans people in 28 countries in the last 12 months, with the majority of 113 from Brazil.


Here in Australia, a local survey by The Gender Centre in 2012 found that 51% had experienced a transphobic incident directed at themselves – either verbal abuse, physical abuse or discrimination. But only 22% had reported the incident to the authorities, as many feared their concerns would not be taken seriously, and others did not want to be ‘outed’ in a police report

How Fluid Sexuality Fits into the LGBTQIA+ Spectrum

How Fluid Sexuality Fits into the LGBTQIA+ Spectrum | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

Sexuality isn’t a choice. So it may seem confusing to some when people say they don’t label their sexuality or feel that their sexuality is fluid.

But being sexually fluid doesn’t mean a person is confused. For a person to know and accept their sexuality as fluid, they must be self-aware.

This isn’t to say that there aren’t some people, like barsexuals, who use the idea of sexual fluidity to play at homosexuality without having to deal with the stigma. But this article isn’t about them.

This article is about those who identify as bi, pan, queer, no labels, genderqueer, or any other identity that goes beyond the sexual identities normally covered by “gay” and “straight”.
