Links, links, so many links, it’s Sir Linksalot up in here! (Okay there are only two links.)

1) Hollywood, seriously. Really. You cast an actress to play Linda Lovelace who, in an interview with GQ, says about the movie Deep Throat, “There’s no point in watching the whole movie. It’s the same shit for an hour and a half. If you’ve seen a clip of it, you’ve seen the movie.”
For fuck’s sake. Can we please just consider taking porn and the huge cultural milestone that made it part of our bigger culture slightly seriously in the Lovelace biopic? ACK.

2) Oh well. At least there’s this incredible poem, “How to Make Love to a Trans Person,”  by Gabe T in Genderqueer Chicago. Beautiful. An excerpt:
“Make the arch of her back a language
Name the hollows of each of her vertebrae
When they catch pools of sweat
Like rainwater in a row of paper cups
Align your teeth with this alphabet of her spine
So every word is weighted with the salt of her.”
