The Bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals. That doesn't mean that God doesn't love heterosexuals. It's just that they need more supervision.

Not the first Fed. appt. by any stretch, but I think it's perfect that Amanda Simpson is the first recognized transgender appointment made by a presidential administration. Her resume is amazing and flawless. She is exactly right for her position. If this was a political move it was brilliant. But I don't think it was political. The White House didn't comment on it. They have transgender employees, even appointees in other depts (Dept. Commerce was the first) and the most significant reason is that they have quietly changed the language on the federal employment website to include discrimination based on gender identity. Pres. Obama is getting it done. It's not fast and flashly. But probably fast and flashly won't work. One step at a time. I'm happy with one step at a time. Amanda Simpson is a good step.
We are lesbians who seek to change the world one person at a time.
We are blogging to throw some light on some key problems for folks who might not see or believe mainstream news outlets (not that mainstream news outlets always concern themselves with what we think they should).
We have a few ideas about making the neighbors who share this gift-place planet more neighborly.
And sometimes (everyday) we'll throw in some political fun - because if politics is anything, it's fun.
There were 2 flames here at Fire. We have worshiped each other and now a blue flame burns. Think "Strange Fire" by the Indigo Girls.
Flint is our political contributor. She has lived all over the world, worked in D.C. and needs to go back. Our world would be a better place if she did. Flint will always write in this font - straightforward and without frills. She seeks to ignite you.
Blaze is our human interest contributor. She will bring you the personal stories of those affected by Flint's issues. Blaze will always write in italics - softer and with more flair (no pun intended). She seeks to move you.
