commented on SL Letter of the Day: Let Me Think...
Oh hay LW. I'm also a bisexual woman in a monogamous relationship with a lady and I have that exact fantasy during masturbation or sex sometimes, even though I similarly have no desire to be a man or even a butch woman. I've never worried that it was cheating but it's cool to hear that I'm not the only bi cis woman who has this fantasy.
I'm not sure how to explain it but I feel like mentally mapping my sexual sensations onto an imaginary penis can make them easier or more enjoyable to process, even though I don't want to have an actual penis. And stepping into the psychological role of a gay male top is obviously fun, too.

NOM promoted this guy's statement on their blog -- except they cut out the part about putting gays to death. I don't know what the status is on that Brian Brown debate, but if Brown tries to say, "well, the Christians who quote the wrong anti-gay Bible passages at you are different than us NOM folks, who only quote the gentler New Testament ones," I hope Dan sticks their support for this guy's statement in his face.

I think Dan can really mitigate the damage from this whole incident if he does more to get his apology for “pansy-assed” and less-regrettably-phrased defense of “bullshit” out there. I think he should put it in a video. Yeah, he apologized and clarified on the blog, but how many people are going to read that while the anti-gays completely ignore it and keep running with this story? They LOVE being able to say “look everyone, the ‘anti-bullying’ guy is a bully!" So show them what anti-bullying advocates do when they make a mistake (even if it would probably be an overstatement to call that mistake "bullying"). Make it a teachable moment. The It Gets Better Project started with a video and continued with videos, and the conference clip is on video, too. Dan should make a video explaining that the world isn’t divided into the bullies and the bullied, and sometimes well-meaning people mess up and say things that are unkind, and the right thing to do in that situation is to take responsibility and apologize. Then say what he said on the blog: calling the walkout pansy-assed was wrong, but attacking hypocrisy isn’t the same as attacking Christianity, etc. I think a video, particularly if approached from his role as an anti-bullying advocate, would probably be a more effective way to remedy this than the blog.
