I redid my profile also, I had WAY too much shit on there. Much more simple and clean now, like the layout.

totally lovin' the new layout of the main page and the info. very cool.

also, i really love that you used the word (prefix?) "homo". I also love to use the word (let's call it a word, according to our awesome new-ish usage) "homo".

here's the thing: i like to say homo. some people say it's because by using the word "homo" we are "reclaiming" it from people who use it as an insult. let's not go that far--I just like the word. "gay"--that has its own connotation, and as a girl that doesn't always apply. lesbian? eh, i like to be more general than that. also, "lesbian" sounds like a body part or disease. ick.

So, I like the word homo for several reasons:
1) it's short
2) the word it's short for is scientific, and as such has very little (although of course some) social ramifications
3) it's fun, don't you just love to say it?! "HOMO!!!!!" i think it's that the two syllables rhyme.
4) it offends people. i'm not sure why, maybe because it makes them think immediately of gay sex. but it does offend them. while i don't get why, exactly, it offends people; nor do i think it *should* offend people, it does. and honestly, i kind of like that. lol!

anyway, this is a long rambling comment now, but i am just really happy that you identify as homo.

i'm also a big homo, although i do sometimes sway from that. let's call it 'homoflexable"--that's another great word.

so yeah, you're awesome. also, i'm sort of wondering if you feel the same as I about the word or just happened to utter it and cause me to <3 you even more. LOL

I just think it sounds funny, and also I'm not hung up on words as much as I used to be. I also refer to myself as queer and fag/faggot, if that gives you any better idea. ;-)

yeah, i also use queer. i think that i'm not really hung up on words as much as i was either, i just find that when i use 'homo' people cringe.

and i kind of like that. LOL
