    Damn you Peterson. I’m hooked on queer and queerer. I get withdrawal symptoms if I don’t listen to your podcast at least once a week. 😉

    haha llama, Zack and my superpowers are fully functioning now and you are stuck in the vocal beam…
    Glad you like the show 😀

    Great podcast Z & P (and Robyn with a “y”). As one of those androgynous people, I appreciate a discussion that acknowledges any part of our humanity as being in the stream rather than on the shore.

    The bi label doesn’t easily lend itself to static definition and requires active attention for any who would ‘see.’ Really, I think that’s true about life in general, that life by definition is motion and death is the cessation of that motion. Luckily, our sexuality is fueled by hormones (among other things), and is not likely to even pretend to stand still for defining. It forces any who would understand to pay attention… the stuff of living.

    Thanks, paul, yes, identity in motion. I believe that very much for myself, although in Robyn’s talk at Bucknell she did highlight the fact that for some people there truly is little motion. They don’t move much in regards to orientation or gender identity/presentation.

    Paying attention is vital. We can so easily live with assumptions, including assumptions about ourselves.
