Who Gnu?
Gosh, I almost never post here lately. Unfortunately, it's because I don't have much to say, not because I don't want to.

So for want of anything else, here's a website I threw together this week: The Chiaroscuro Reading and Workshop Series, because the free host shut us down for having the word "lesbian" on the front page. It was an auto shutdown, designed to stop porn, but still... took four days to get it back. And we can do better in-house, I think.

Anyway, let me know if you see any problems, please.

Uh... so now "lesbian" is a porn word?

If websites start censoring words like "college", "student", "teenager", "mom", "wild", "hard" and the many dozens that routinely appear in porn, we'll have to end up going back to the good old pens and paper in spite of all odds ;)

Good luck with the new website!

It is certainly interesting to triage cultural norms via attitudes to pornography. I remember when "homosexual" was never used. I'm sure my parents could have remembered when nobody said "pregnant". What a strange thing this creature called human being is.

Looks very clear and good to me.
