    • So Jesus said, “Let he who is sufficiently self-righteous throw the first pomaceous fruit,” precisely nowhere in the Bible and yet the person who threw the apple still felt the need to write a note, and post it in public, saying that he was right with Jesus and the victim was wrong.  While everything the apple tosser did is awful, some of the comments people wrote, in pen, on the note itself were kind of nice.
    • I wrote about the reason that the rainbow umbrella contains groups identified by sexuality and groups identified by gender identity even though these groups may not, at first, seem to be related.  Short version: traditional gender roles weave together the ideas of sex, gender, and sexuality and as a result the same social construct harms all of the groups under said umbrella (and others too.)
    • I wrote about why the fact that Khan was a person of color (in The Original Series and Star Trek II: The Movie Named After Him) mattered.
    • I wrote a meta-Hattie responding to Rayford’s epic anti-apology.  (Which in canon Left Behind is unquestioningly accepted as the apology that it isn’t.)
    • Then I did the first Skewed Slightly to the Left in two months, so it’s sort of bad (canon) Rayford above and good (non-canon) Rayford here.  This is when he, Hattie, and the copilot finally get off the plane immediately after the rapture and find themselves in a disaster area.
    • Also, as a bit of housekeeping, I made the index for this month in 2013.  The only real big highlight from a reading perspective that month was that it was when I made my guide to making bad movies.
