One of the Sporcle quizzes today is Name every episode of Supernatural! Last time I played this quiz, it was in the user-made section, it only went halfway through season four and I got all of them. This time, I only got 98/126, although there are some I can't believe I missed. But I'm really shitty on seasons five and six, so I'm not surprised.

I'm always a little confused when I hear people talking about being taught that marriage is between a man and a woman--it's something so far outside of my childhood experience I almost can't understand it.

The truth is, I don't think anyone ever taught me anything about marriage. I knew that my parents were married; I knew that my friends' parents were married. I knew that when people were unmarried, it was called getting a divorce.

But as far as I know, no one in my life ever sat me down and defined marriage for me. I learned everything by osmosis. I never heard that it was between a man and a woman.

What I learned was this:

I was eight, and in summer camp, and the other kids were making fun of a boy I didn't like. They were calling him gay, and I was too.My dad picked me up, and I was babbling, like kids do, saying the kid was gay and stupid and sucked.

My dad stopped the car. He turned to me and said, "Chash, do you know what gay means?"

I didn't.

He said, "If you're gay, it means you like people of the same sex. There's nothing wrong with it, and it's nothing to be ashamed of, and I never want to hear you using that word like that again."

That's what I remember my parents teaching me, and I am glad every day that they did.

Thanks, New York ♥

Livejournal does creepy shit; news at 11.

If you haven't looked at this post, check it out! LJ is now adding IP-based city and country information if you have IP logging enabled. Which basically means that if you have IP logging on, instead of just seeing ([IP address]) after someone's user name, you see ([Country], [City] / [IP address]). It's super duper creepy! Also, if you turn it off, it doesn't go away retroactively--that is, anywhere you have ever commented that logged IPs now has this information, and even if the user turns off the IP logging address, it remains. I do know this for certain! Because I turned off IP logging at longsufferingly, and I still see all the old IPs I logged. Which makes me feel like a huge fucking creeper. THANKS, LJ.

Anyway, just a head's up. I'm all for LOTS OF COMPLAINTS in the hope that this will go away. Ugh.

I made a terrible comm for ironic and unironic squee about Chad Michael Murray's new graphic novel, guys. I can't promise it will ever have anything like content, but I can promise my unrelenting enthusiasm for whatever the fuck will happen in that graphic novel.

Hey guys, if you feel like doing something nice for me for my birthday, you can go over here, register, and vote for my friend juice817 in this contest! You can vote every day! It takes like two seconds to register, and it would be super awesome if she made the top twenty, because then she would get a chance to play a part in the American Gods anniversary audio book.

Anyway, yes! Vote! For my birthday.

Hey guys, just a heads up--I rarely get anon comments on this account, but I've been getting some anonymous spam comments about enlarging my penis on old public entries, so anon commenting is turned off for the moment!
