I am a 20 year old bisexual female from the state of Indiana in the United States. I receive newletters from the Human Rights Campaign and was recently informed of a bill introduced to the U.S. Congress that would repeal the "don't ask, don't tell" policy currently enforced among homosexuals in the United States Military. Basically, any known homosexual will be prevented from joining the military or discharged from the military simply because they are gay. This new bill, called the Military Readiness Enhancement Act, would do away with "don't ask, don't tell" and institute complete tolerance of homosexuals in the military.

I wrote to my state representative, voicing my opinion on the bill, and asking him to support it. My request was denied. Apparently, my congressman believes that "homosexual activity is prejudicial to the good order and discipline of the armed services. For that reason, [he] oppose[s] any efforts that would allow known homosexuals to enter into or continue service in the military."

Now, I'm not a naive person, and I did not expect miracles. But I do believe that this world is gradually changing. As homosexual, bisexual, and transgender people are being more open about their sexuality, we are starting to be accepted for who and what we are. Change will not happen in a day... it may not even happen in a decade.

However, we need to let our voices be heard now, so that we can start changing the future one person at a time. For this reason, I'm asking you, whoever you are, wherever you're from, and whatever your sexuality is, to write to the United States Congress in support of this bill. It may not be passed and made into law, but at least we will let the U.S. government know that gay, bi, and transgender people everywhere are willing to stand up for their rights.

If you've gotten this far, thank you for reading, and please show your support for all homosexuals in the military by writing a letter today.

6:00 pm - "flabulously fattie" clothing swap

I anticipate having "flabulously fattie" clothing swap in the near future. It will consist of free clothes being swapped by large and lovelies who want to find new-to-them treasures and donate things they no longer want for whatever reason. There may be a fat ally section, for our less voluptuous counterparts, as long as the focus and drive is behind creating a supportive environment for fatties to have fun and strut their stuff.

Think about what you have in the closet that you haven't worn in a while (and honestly don't care to wear anytime soon) and whether or not it might need a new good home. Start sorting now, and make some room for some fantastic new duds. Anything left over can be taken home (if you get a weak heart) or I will take it to St. Vinnie's in the name of Womenspace to make someone else happy.

More details to follow, but start your spring cleaning now! I'm thinking mid-April?

population in Eugene, Oregon. Not to
sure what to expect though, I'll update
it with Eugene related LGBT news & event
information and see where it goes...

It's called: gayeugene. Original.. eh?

12:37 pm - Spread the word - Vote NO on 36!

Oregon ballots are already mailed out and in the hands of some voters so now is the most crucial time if you want to make a difference. Copy and paste this message into an e-mail to inform your family, friends, co-workers and ALL Oregonians how harmful this issue is.

Our Constitution is for protecting our most basic and important rights. It should not be used to settle partisan, religious or ideological disputes. And it should never be changed in a way that hurts people. But Constitutional Amendment 36 would deny thousands of gay and lesbian Oregonians and their families access to healthcare, fair survivor rights and the ability to make life-saving medical decisions. We may disagree about social issues such as marriage, but those disagreements do not belong in our Constitution.

There are over 1,000 basic civil rights that come with marriage that would be denied to gay and lesbian partners if Constitutional Amendment 36 passes. Here are just 20 of some of those rights, responsibilities and protections, many of which are taken for granted everyday by heterosexual couples.

1. No automatic right to make health care decisions for partner
2. No automatic right to visit partner in the hospital
3. No right to sue for wrongful death if partner negligently killed
4. No right to consent or refuse consent to an autopsy of partners body
5. No vested right to be buried in cemetery plot with partner
6. No automatic right to inherit cemetery plot
7. No right to donate partner's body or organs after death
8. No automatic right to inherit deceased partners estate
9. A prior will is not automatically revoked when entering a new relationship
10. A prior will is not automatically revoked when the relationship ends
11. No right to be notified in a public notice before partners will is destroyed by an attorney
12. No preference to be appointed personal representative of deceased partners estate
13. No automatic right to notice in matters involving deceased partners estate
14. No right to private visits in long-term care facility
15. No right to share a room in long-term care facility
16. No right to file joint tax returns
17. No right to maintain deceased veteran's property tax exemption
18. No access to partners death record
19. No right to receive deceased partners wages
20. No right to examine or get copy of autopsy report of deceased partner

If you feel that it's wrong that Britney Spears (who got married to a man she did not love in Las Vegas and divorced three days later) should benefit from these rights over a gay or lesbian couple who have been in a loving, committed relationship for decades then PLEASE, vote NO on Constitutional Amendment 36 and PLEASE forward this to everyone you know in Oregon.

12:24 am - Oi Vey....

Alrighty. I have a problem I could use some feedback on. I just got out of what I thought to be a very serious relationship and it ended horribly. The other person involved now seems to think that I am a really bad person. I really want to be friends, even if it takes some time, but I don't know if she will ever be able to do it. I miss her a lot and I feel bad about the way things happened. I want all the bullshit to be water under the bridge, but it keeps coming back....
Now I am interested in someone else, but I don't want to start anything until I feel a little more resolved about this other situation. Any ideas or thoughts?

current mood: nostalgic

I was at work today. I thought about her. If she had come through that door. If she had cared to. I would have told her to go home. How can I have cared for someone so much to only be able to turn away so easily? She slapped my face and I gave her the other cheek. It made me happy to know I could be strong enough to tell her to go home. I wish I could give her another chance. But I know she doesn't want one. And I honestly don't want to give it.

current mood: satisfied

4:20 pm - Help..

The girl I am hella into is so frustrating. She asked me last Friday if she was wasting her time with me. I told her no. But since then we haven't kissed, let alone touch. Last night it took me 20 minutes to decide if I had the courage to kiss her goodnight. When I did, she said "it took you 20 minutes to decide if I was kissable?" I said it wasn't that. It was the fact that I was afaird she wouldn't kiss me back. She said "I always kiss you back." I wanted to say "but you never kiss me!" She didn't grow up with affection. Doesn't know how to show it. But she gets frustrated with me, because I don't open up to her. I'm shy and scared of people. I've tried to explain. Not very well. What do I do? How do I show enough openess to her to state her aggrivation? How do I get her to kiss me first? Did I completely mess everything up and lose all chances with her when she asked if she was wasting her time? I don't know what to do.

Hi. I'm called darkstorm. I've gone to school in Eugene for 6 years, but only moved here 2 years ago. I have just recently come to realize who I am and am finding it difficult. The girl I'm seeing isn't making it any easier. This site looks like it'll be a positive experience for me.

2:40 am - Let's get this community moving

I grew up in Eugene until I was seventeen and ran away to college. Now I'm in a town that is so much like Eugene, only smaller, it makes me miss that town like crazy. Olympia, Washington is where I mean, and I attend The Evergreen State College. Olympia itself is a sort of lesbian and ftm mecca, but not like Eugene. It's so natural there. The only place I was ever hassled for holding a girl's hand was in school. No one flinched to watch two teenage girls make out in the park, and I loved that, but I didn't really understand how rare it was until I moved out. Now I've lived away for two years and I look forward to visits like nothing else. I've heard from my best friend back there that the U of O has a really on top of it lbgtqq group, but I haven't ever been. I run the queer group on my own campus and wish we could get Olympia (which is supposed to be so open) to actually come to our meetings. Anyway, I just joined, so I thought I should say hi. Hi.
