You’ve all been waiting for it: The first part of our mini-series on gender and sexuality. We bring on blogger Klaus McHendry. From the get-go we deal with some heavy topics, including abuses against LGBTQ+ people, but stick with us because we talk about the pervasive gender binary. We also touch on Western imperialism and the question: which is better, bad representation or no representation?
Klaus has more to say at the thenicklauseffect.tumblr.com. Follow them; they’re awesome. Klaus will be coming back as we continue the gender and sexuality mini-series.
