cruel bigot alert.

biascut has already posted about this, but did anyone else see this appalling tirade in today's Guardian magazine? I haven't read such hate-filled nastiness in a supposedly liberal paper since....another Julie. Gah. I mean, what is the point of that piece? It seems designed purely to belittle people for no real reason.

I say, give that page to Zoe Williams. She's funny, she's smart and she seems pretty nice from her column in Now magazine. Also, I love Things You Only Know If You're Not at Work, because tragically, I can identify with them all.

And, despite the bigotry evident in the magazine this week, I must confess I loved this piece in today's Guide section, in which small children rate classic rock, which includes the best description of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit" ever:

Sophie: It's making me think about doing bad things like putting snowballs down my sister's back.

Hee.

By and large, I am very enamoured of the Dutch attitudes: the casual slang for a trans is "a renovation" (omgebouwd), which strikes the right sense of playfulness along with the recognition. (And, in the name of preserving my somewhat frayed good humor, I'll skip that awful piece.)

But what I really wanna know is, where do you go on the internet to find whale sounds? I want!
