Queer writer and relationships columnist Samuel Leighton-Dore’s new picture book I Think I’m a Poof addresses the challenging realities often faced in our youth, including discovering yourself, and being on the receiving end of bullying. Samuel has filmed three Aussie dads with gay sons reading the book and discussing their experiences.

Copies of the book are available from ithinkimapoof.com, with $1 from every book sold being donated  to QLife, an Australian counselling and referral service for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex people.

If you want it, put a Sock on it!

Imagine you’re a lawmaker in the US state that is ranked #2 in number of teen pregnancies. You’re a Conservative who doesn’t quite like the idea of teens getting it on with each other before they’re married. So what do you do?

Easy! You just pretend sex doesn’t exist! Which, of course, means proper sex education at school is a big no-no and condoms can’t be mentioned because they’d just encourage those horny teens to fuck their brains out!

Luckily some people in said state aren’t complete nutbags stuck in the time of witch hunts and chastity belts. So if we can’t talk about condoms going over teenage dicks we’ll just talk about socks going over teen shoes. No matter if you’re into athletic or dress shoes… there we go: sox-ed.
