Someone please read this slate.com article and tell me why I'm gay. Or why I care. Ooh, I just had a flash of all the millions of people reading this blog recoiling in horror: he doesn't care why he's gay?
Um, no, not really.
But you know what I do find fascinating? Hymenoplasty. Faithful readers of Going40 know that we don't spend too much time thinking about womany parts; in fact, we couldn't even draw them on a map. But in this article, slate.com caught my eye with the simple phrase "hiring a doctor to restore your hymen." And yes, before you get all indignant, I know there are huge religiousgenderbiassexualityfreedompowermisogynypolitical issues to consider regarding this important topic.
I would simply like credit for using the word hymen without passing out.
