Cruel Consequences: Encouraging communities to replace the negative stereotyped images of marijuana criminalization
On ethical violations and two years of practicing withholding semen
The Museum of Contemporary Photography examines America’s obsession with guns in a new exhibit.
While most of you were probably not paying attention, another Republican announced he was running for governor. That makes four. Or five if you count Mancow, who had talked about running. I don’t blame you for not paying attention to the Republican primary for governor—as the election’s not until June of 2022. Gubernatorial primaries used […]
Q: I’m a gay man. After a decade together and five years of marriage, my husband informed me he wasn’t really interested in sex anymore. That was a year ago and we haven’t had sex since. He told me I should leave him, if regular sex was “really that important” to me, but if I […]
For the last few days, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other prominent lefties have sounded the alarm to Dems across the land. Do not support President Biden’s nomination of Mayor Rahm as ambassador to Japan. As he—Rahm, not Biden—buried evidence of murder in the Laquan McDonald shooting. And Dems have responded with their middle fingers metaphorically […]
Code for America: Clear My Record is transforming the process of record clearance
Q: Hello! I am a heterosexual man! My wife came out as a lesbian after 30 years of marriage. We have children together and we love each other. Therefore, we’ve decided not to divorce. We visited some therapists and they all coerced us to divorce, even though we really do not want that. We believe […]
Having been exposed to the wit and wisdom of John Catanzara for a couple of years, I’ve reached a rather obvious conclusion about the president of the local Fraternal Order of Police. It would be better off for everybody—Catanzara included—if he just hurried up and moved to Florida, where he’ll probably be living soon enough, […]
If you’ve seen Judas and the Black Messiah, the multiple-award-winning film about the 1969 murder of Illinois Black Panther Party chairman Fred Hampton, you’ve got a picture in your head of the 4:30 AM raid in which a drugged and sleeping Hampton was killed by a barrage of police bullets. The raid was carried out […]
Q: I’m a woman who recently went out on a third date with a man. I invited him back to my place and we started making out, which led to him going down on me. Moments later he took off his pants and to my surprise he had a micropenis. I was shocked and turned […]
I suppose it’s only appropriate that President Biden announced Mayor Rahm’s nomination as ambassador to Japan at roughly the same time as the Taliban took control of Afghanistan. The war in Afghanistan, like Rahm’s reign as mayor, has come to symbolize the deceit and treachery of leaders who claim they’re looking out for us when, […]
Q: Is it ever ok to stop being GGG? I’ve been with my husband for 26 years. Shortly after we got together, my husband disclosed a major kink: MFM threesomes. I was young and a virgin and up for anything then, but we didn’t start hooking up with other men until around year six of our relationship. Over […]
National Expungement Works: Emancipating justice-impacted communities that have been exploited by systemic inequities
Migrating to WordPress and modernizing the site is part of the Reader’s grand plan to keep being free and freaky for another 50 years. We couldn’t do it without you, and I want to thank everyone who’s supported us during our transition to nonprofit and our ongoing struggle—like everyone else—to successfully weather the upheavals of the last 18 months.
