Junior high school brings changes to any student's life -- new expectations, new teachers and, for some, even a new school district. For Craig Jessup, now a 15-year-old ninth grader in Larkspur, Calif., seventh grade brought with it something even more eye-opening -- a new sexual identity.
"Right before I came into the seventh grade at St. Patrick's, two people who were very close to me came out to me. It was at that point that I started looking back at my life and seeing all these times that I had these thoughts but had no labels to identify them with," he said. "And I began to kind of take a look at the label of 'gay' and see what that meant for me, and see how I could adapt it to my life. And it was pretty much a solid fit right from the very beginning. I could see that that was who I was, and that was pretty shocking."

Pansy Division knows what people say about them: They're a gimmick band, a bit too penis-centric and not to be taken seriously. And there are enough songs which support that theory, quite honestly. But as bassist Chris Freeman pointed out in a recent interview with Oasis, they might be seen as a gimmick band, but they're about to release their fifth album and making a living. The new album, "More Lovin' From Our Oven" on Lookout Records, is a compilation of their latest EPs.

Many teens initially question why they are queer when first discovering their sexuality. Some question it even after accepting it.
In 1991, Simon LeVay took his curiosity about his sexuality and applied it to his work as a researcher for the Salk Institute. LeVay found, by studying the brains of gay and straight men, that gay men had a smaller area of cells in the hypothalamus portion of the brain.
I have come to the conclusion that it will never ever stop snowing in the Baltimore/Washington area, ever.
I have decided on a celtic design, either a heart or a star. We will see. I wont go right ahead and get it done. I will take my time and consider if I really want it or not. Its all up to me. :)
Which one ? I think Star is more like wiccaish so I like it since Im spriually wicca.
Well today at work, has prooved an interesting and frustrateing day. A co-worker thought it would funny to mess with my systems. needless to say, she did just this... My whole work station is fried, nothing works, i now have to sit at one of the "spares" bland and plain staions. I am mad. She thinks its funny.
I said when I sat down at the "Spare" I need an Ativan. the girl next to me opened up a pill bottle and handed me one.
Well, the weekend was marvelous once again, as my weekends are all apt to being (give or take 3 fabulocity points).
Friday involved a big beat-em-up evening with my friends, with me finding my legs in marvel vs capcom , and mortal kombat 2. Switched over to Snow Brothers and Dungeons & Dragons : Shadows over Mystara later in the night though.
There's something oddly attractive about people who look like they could be either male or female. Last night at work there was this guy, who at first, I thought was a girl. It took me about five minutes of sneaking glances across the room at him before I was sure he was a he.
the ritual of rituals.
