There were transgendered secondary characters. To some extent, they were there as advice-givers, but it was reasonable within the plot. Louisa became a good friend to Adam. She was a very sympathetic and likeable character.
Heidi's one of the authors I wish some other authors would read for getting the idea of how to write BDSM and Dom/sub relationships.
I lay down at around 11:00 p.m., and lay there awake for quite a while. I didn't feel distressed. I didn't feel a strong need to get up and do something. I was probably awake for a couple of hours, because at some point I finally dozed off and woke at 9:30 a.m. I was feeling okay, but slow to get going with anything productive. Eventually around 1:15 p.m. I sat under the sunlight-effect lamp and finished reading Fixing Sex: Intersex, Medical Authority, and Lived Experience. It was the second time I'd read it, or maybe the third.
RM the blogger (Racheline Maltese) put up a Letters from Titan post about constructing gender in Glee. I said there that in "Diva," Blaine was queening out. I said that that was the vocabulary I had for it. People pick up all kinds of expressions from Letters from Titan posts. I'm sure they'll get a caution not to use that around real people who are doing it. I've said to guys' faces that they were queeny, and they accepted it as true. I wish I could say that I said it more politely than that, and sometimes I did, but there were times that I said it outright.
