Any person who is a member of an organized religion eventually gets asked the question “Why do you believe in your God and your faith?” And I’ve been seeing this question asked to a lot of the Catholic and Muslim bloggers I follow over the last few weeks and it’s got me thinking about the “correct” answer.

To the people who ask this question “I dunno, I just do.” is not good enough. Which is unfortunate for me because that is my answer. I can go on and on about my reasoning for lots of stuff but my reasoning for having faith is so big and complex and emotional and intimate that I can’t even begin to rationalize it into words. So “I just do” is all I can manage.

But I think I might finally have a better response.

What does love taste like?

We all know what love is, we have a pretty good idea of how it feels but what does it taste like?

We can all come up with some sort of long-winded metaphor quite quickly but even if you took several weeks to think it over you can’t really find a response that completely satisfies you and the more you think about it the stupider the question feels.

So yeah, my response to “Why do you believe in God?” is less about explaining my reasoning and more about showing the asker how it feels to be asked so they better understand my fairly underwhelming response.

Funny story about the threesomes and having two guys and one girl. An English guy and a Scottish guy were both into me, and they were good friends, so when I wouldn't choose, they offered to do a threesome. I was so surprised that I started awkwardly laughing because I wasn't sure how to react and I panicked.

While this may not be one of our traditional success stories, this is quite possibly further evidence that we have always been here and that in and of itself is a success for our community.

Trans Female Skeleton


Archaeologists have discovered a 5,000-year-old skeleton which they believe may be the remains of a transgender person.

Men’s bodies from that age and culture are usually found buried with their heads towards the west and with weapons.

But this skeleton was found with its head towards the east and was surrounded by domestic jugs – as women’s bodies from the time are usually found.

At a press conference in Prague yesterday, archaeologists theorised that the person may have been transgender or ‘third sex’.

Kamila Remišová, the head of the research team, said: “From history and ethnology, we know that when a culture had strict burial rules they never made mistakes with these sort of things.”

The article also states that:

This is not the first time a skeleton has been found buried as a member of the opposite sex. One woman from the Mesolithic period, who was assumed to be a warrior, was found buried with weapons.

“transgender is new trend” go fuck yourselvea

Trans people have always existed.

If you aren’t aware, cops love to destroy the phones of people who record them. 

So next time you’re in a situation where you are recording an officer and fear for the safety of your video evidence, try using the Bambuser app.

It uploads your video online to your Bambuser account while you record it. You can also stream the video live. This way your videos are saved online, safe from the hands of the uniformed pigs.
