Happy New Year!

No recap or top posts of the past year. Instead of looking backwards, let’s look forward to how we can make the world around us a better place. — I have a Patreon, if you like the work I’m doing, I’d appreciate it if you sent a few dollars my way.

Top 10 posts of 2014

Here are my top ten posts from 2014. One thing I realized while compiling this list is that I really need to blog more, so here’s to a more productive 2015. 10. #DefendTheDuggars (Sort of) I’ve said it before on social media and I’ll say it again here. The mocking of Duggar children is not something I can get behind. Criticize the Duggar parents for what they’re doing to their children, criticize Jim Bob, Michelle, and Josh for their anti-LGBT activism, that’s fair game. Mocking the kids isn’t. Kids like the Duggars, who aren’t being given a real education (you don’t get a real education from ATI Wisdom Booklets), who aren’t allowed college, and who aren’t even allowed a single private conversation with someone of the opposite sex until they’re married, are the ones I’m trying to help.  9. “You went to a Christian college, what did you expect?” The campus climate problems may be different at Christian colleges than secular ones, but don’t kid yourself, the environment can be pretty bad at state schools too. I don’t want my criticism of how Covenant handled my alumni update situation and the erasing of LGBT alumni to suggest that it’s a problem limited to Christian schools. 8. Kevin Swanson Bingo Inspired by the Kevin Swanson Watch bingo, Twitterer @Apostate_X created this handy dandy Kevin Swanson Bingo for you and all your friends to play along at home while you listen to K-Swizzle’s Generations Radio. Or, as we prefer to call it, the #KSwanComedyHalfHour. The #KSwanComedyHalfHour is where you can learn about how Frozen turns children gay, how Girl Scouts turn children gay, how homosexuals are like cannibals, how lesbians eat feces (I think he saw Two Girls, One Cup, please, please, please nobody tell him about goatse), and well, you might be noticing a theme here. You’ll also learn about the Neronic[…]

2012, A Retrospective

My year, in no particular order. Over this last year I made it through my second and third semesters of law school; worked my tail off to reelect the president; studied in China, and checked off the second leader on my “embalmed communist leaders world tour”; went back to Vietnam, saw old friends, crashed a motorbike and got a lovely scar on my eyelid in the process; decided to go to Cambodia on a whim; got lost a lot in my travels; read more pages than I care to count; came out; put something like 1,500 miles on my scooter; wrote lots and lots of pages; traveled farther by myself in countries where I don’t speak any of the language than I’ve done before; took up drinking scotch; read some more; and well, all in all had a good year. Here’s to 2013.
