    "Manning" the Grill

    "Manning" the Grill

    Memorial Day used to be Decoration Day because you're supposed to decorate the graves of fallen soldiers.


    Yes, housewives were told to put hot dogs in Jello.  We wouldn't make up something like that.


    NASA briefly considered sending women on the Mercury VII mission but ultimately made John Glenn the first American astronaut in orbit instead. NASA's official selection criteria for astronauts was



    Less than 40 years old;

    Less than 5 feet 11 inches (1.80 m) tall;

    In excellent physical condition;

    With a bachelor's degree or equivalent;

    A graduate of test pilot school;

    With a minimum of 1,500 hours total flying time; and

    A qualified jet pilot.


    But the unofficial criteria? Well, they were all white male Protestants with wives and children. They were all the eldest or only sons in their families and they were all raised in small towns.


     


    Grilled broccoli is amazing.  Don't forget the red pepper flakes! I like to leave the stems long; they make a nice handle for turning on the grill surface.

    Star Trek's First LGBTQ Episode

    Star Trek's First LGBTQ Episode

    Faith is a Star Trek fan, and this is Kath's first Star Trek episode ever. The New Generation's Season 5 Episode 17 "The Outcast" was a heavy-handed, clumsy, well-intentioned episode about gay things.  It was 1992 so we're giving them a break.


     


    Why is the flight deck called "the bridge"?  There's only one way to find out.

    Hedwig and The Angry Inch

    Hedwig and The Angry Inch

    Kath has questions for Faith about John Cameron Mitchell's discomfiting masterpiece Hedwig and The Angry Inch.  (Several unpleasant topics come up, so heed the trigger warning at the start.) 


    Origin of Love is a song that makes Kath cry.  Happy tears-- it's ok. Maybe it's time to get an Origin of Love tattoo. That'll give her something to cry about.


    Learn more about Romy Haag.


    Learn more about Theo Kogan. 


    Watch Shortbus if you dare.


    Got a great voice? Are you scrawny or Taye Diggs? You, too, could play Hedwig, like all of these people.

    Accidental Affirmation

    Accidental Affirmation

    You're a transman but internet trolls only see "trans" and assume you're a transwoman.  "YOU'RE NOT A REAL WOMAN. YOU'LL NEVER BE A REAL WOMAN!1!!11!" might feel great.  But does it feel great? Should it feel great? What do you do when you accidentally receive affirmation from a hater?

    The Rebels Go to the Movies: The Matrix

    The Rebels Go to the Movies: The Matrix

    We've created a podcast within a podcast: The Rebels Go to the Movies!  In our first episode, we watch and review The Matrix.   SO MANY SPOILERS.  So see it before you listen. If you haven't seen it yet, why not????? It's so good! Lily Wachowski recently confirmed it is, indeed, an allegory for the transgender experience.
