commented on Southern Discomfort
"Plays well with others" is a fantastic, and widely under-appreciated book. It's not even mentioned in this review!

@2: I would like to see straight white evangelicals show their support too.
commented on The Eight State Solution
Gotta say that Sully sounds like an old-fashioned self-hating homo when he talks about the rights of states to shit on their gays, or how concerned he is with popular discomfort with his homosexuality.
Also, his latest posts on media sound so narcissistic to me, but that's not really related to this post.
commented on Wondering How to Feel About the GMO Labeling Initiative?
And speaking as a Californian who thought long and hard about this issue before voting on it, I come down as follows:
GMO-labeling is anti-science and based on magical thinking about the effects of technology on human health. The threats to the environment are potentially real, but the threats to human health are not (i.e., genetic modification doesn't inherently make a soybean dangerous to eat, unless it was modified to produce toxins). A non-GMO twinkie worse for your health than a GMO salad.
However, it's hard to argue against the right to know, even if people have no idea how to interpret the information, so I voted in favor.
commented on On "Real" Nerds
The backlash makes me groan. Sexy girl nerds are like bisexuals: Sure they exist, but calling yourself one doesn't necessarily make it so.
