I am reading  Unrequited Infatuations: A Memoir by Stevie Van Zandt. He used the word sapiosexual. I had no idea what it meant so I Googled it.

Sapiosexual – a person finding intelligence sexually attractive or arousing.

Below that definition, Google listed several other related terms. Some, new to me.

A person who identifies as biromantic can be romantically attracted to multiple genders. Biromantic asexuals seek romantic, but not sexual, relationships with people of more than one gender identity.

When a person is asexual, they are not sexually attracted to anyone. 

The prefix “poly” means many, and polysexual individuals are attracted to people of multiple genders. People who identify as polysexual often use that word because it suggests a greater variety of sexual orientations than traditional gender binaries of male and female, or hetero and homosexual.

The four genders are masculine, feminine, neuter and common.

What are some different gender identities?


A person who is agender does not identify with any particular gender, or they may have no gender at all.

Other terms for this may include:

  • neutral gender
  • null-gender
  • genderless
  • neutrois


A person who identifies as androgyne has a gender that is either both masculine and feminine or between masculine and feminine.


A person who identifies as bigender has two genders.

People who are bigender often display cultural masculine and feminine roles.


Women, especially lesbians, tend to use this term to describe the way they express masculinity, or what society defines as masculinity.

However, the LGBTQIA Resource Center state that “butch” can also be a gender identity in itself.


A cisgender person identifies with the sex that they were assigned at birth.

For example, a cisgender woman is someone who still identifies with the sex — female, in this case — a doctor assigned them at birth.

Gender expansive

The LGBTQIA Resource Center define gender expansive as an “umbrella term used for individuals who broaden their own culture’s commonly held definitions of gender, including expectations for its expression, identities, roles, and/or other perceived gender norms.”

Those who are gender expansive include people who are transgender and people whose gender broadens the surrounding society’s notion of what gender is.


A person who identifies as genderfluid has a gender identity and presentation that shifts between, or shifts outside of, society’s expectations of gender.

Gender outlaw

A person who identifies as a gender outlaw refuses to allow society’s definition of “male” or “female” to define them.


A person who identifies as genderqueer has a gender identity or expression that is not the same as society’s expectations for their assigned sex or assumed gender.

Genderqueer can also refer to a person who identifies outside of how society defines gender or someone who identifies with a combination of genders.

Masculine of center

A person who uses this term is usually a lesbian or a trans person who leans more toward masculine performances and experiences of gender.


A person who identifies as nonbinary does not experience gender within the gender binary.

People who are nonbinary may also experience overlap with different gender expressions, such as being gender non-conforming.


A person who identifies as omnigender experiences and possesses all genders.

Polygender and pangender

People who identify as polygender or pangender experience and display parts of multiple genders.


This is an umbrella term that encompasses all people who experience and identify with a different gender than that which their assigned sex at birth would suggest.

Although most people think of trans men and trans women when hearing the word transgender, this term also encompasses people who identify as a gender other than man or woman, including nonbinary and genderfluid.


Trans is a more inclusive term that covers those who identify as nonbinary and those who are genderless, according to the LGBTQIA Resource Center.

Two Spirit

Two Spirit is an umbrella term that encompasses different sexualities and genders in Indigenous Native American communities.

There are many different definitions of Two Spirit, and Indigenous Native American people may or may not use this term to describe their experiences and feelings of masculinity and femininity.

This is a cultural term that is reserved for those who identify as an Indigenous Native American.

And throw this in the mix


a member of an online community of young men who consider themselves unable to attract women sexually, typically associated with views that are hostile toward women and men who are sexually active.

The Wood Paddle

I mentioned in September that readership had dropped. Then it recovered.  Last week readership dropped precipiously. Like down by 2/3! WTF!

This is an old one. It popped up in my feed the other day. Since it’s one of my all-time favs, I thought I would share it.

“Mom” knows how to deliver a stingy bottom.

Here, you will need this.

I recall being paddled at school in this position

And then the fun began

F/M Paddling

Spanking on the Home Front

I have not written about our spanking lives in some time. The spankings continue, but with less frequency, especially for me. And for me with fewer and more moderate licks. I can blame it on aging. I can blame it on Leukemia.

I am too often tired and not up to paddling Bacall. I must paddle her in the mornings, as by noon, I am headed south energy-wise. Ya think meth would help?

She had been developing a bit of an attitude the past month and I told her several times that if it continued it would result in a paddling she would not like. She continued and I summoned up all my energy and gave her what for. It had been years since she had done so much lap dancing.

I felt a bit sorry for her red cheeks and I saw a seldom-used bottle of hand lotion and a rubber glove with ribs on the dresser. Using the glove with lotion feels really good, so I did. While she was cooing with delight the devil appeared and I picked up the paddle and gave another round on her wet cheeks. Oh my, did that set off the girly squeals?

I am happy that the paddling settled her down. Two days later I was in the bedroom and saw her coming down the hall. I pulled off my belt and she went over my lap for a short time. Things are normal again.

Censorship at the FCC

Biden has proved to be Obama on steriods in pushing a progressive agenda. I doubt that the ideas are Bidens. I suspect others are pulling his strings. We haven’t seen such incompetence since Jimmy Carter.

Last month I posted about the, yet to be confirmed, Comptroller of Currency who favors a Russian banking system. Just one “bank”. Today, I call your attention to his appointment to the FCC.

One look at her and I know beyond a doubt she is liberal.

Negotiations over the $4 trillion spending bill are consuming Washington, but President Biden’s effort to supercharge the regulatory state is also steadily advancing. The latest example is his nomination of progressive partisan Gigi Sohn to the Federal Communications Commission.

The White House last month hailed Ms. Sohn as “one of the nation’s leading public advocates for open, affordable, and democratic communications networks.” Translation: She favors deploying the agency’s regulatory power to shackle broadband providers and silence conservative voices.

Ms. Sohn founded the leftwing group Public Knowledge that has long sought more government control of the internet and media. She was a counselor to Obama FCC Chair Tom Wheeler and was a driving force behind the “net neutrality” regulation that classified broadband providers as common carriers under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934.

The Wheeler rule banned broadband carriers from charging heavy-bandwidth consuming websites like Netflix and Facebook more to carry their content. The enormous regulatory uncertainty caused broadband investment to decline, though it picked up after the Trump FCC scrapped the rule. Ms. Sohn supports making the Wheeler rule even more burdensome.

“I’m not advocating for just reinstating the old rules,” Ms. Sohn told the media site CNET last year. “We need to push for FCC authority to adopt policy to handle issues like zero-rating and data caps.” Progressives want the government to regulate broadband rates like electricity prices, and Ms. Sohn’s musings suggest she’d be on board.

She’s also hinted at deploying the agency’s regulatory power to censor conservative media and revive a version of its mooted fairness doctrine. “For all my concerns about #Facebook, I believe that Fox News has had the most negative impact on our democracy,” she tweeted in October 2020. “It’s state-sponsored propaganda, with few if any opposing viewpoints.”

Ms. Sohn seems to believe that the state is endorsing conservative speech by allowing cable companies to carry it. She also has suggested using the FCC’s power over broadcast licenses to censor conservative outlets. After Tribune Broadcasting abandoned its merger with the conservative-leaning Sinclair Broadcast Group in 2018, she declared “Today is a good day for every American who believes that diversity of voices in the media is better for our democracy” and urged the FCC to “look at whether Sinclair is qualified to be a broadcast licensee at all.”

She could also use the agency’s power to block mergers that expand conservative media’s reach. Left-wing activists have petitioned the FCC to block the sale of a Spanish-language radio station in Miami to the conservative-leaning América CV Network, which Democratic Congress Members suggested in a letter to the agency wasn’t operating in the “public interest” and might have propagated election misinformation.

The FCC is currently split 2-2, and if Ms. Sohn is confirmed, Democrats will move quickly on the progressive agenda. Mr. Biden has also renominated Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel to another term as agency Chair. A source says Biden Administration officials wanted to name Ms. Sohn as Chair but worried that moderate Democratic Senators would then reject her nomination.

Ms. Sohn’s strident partisanship should disqualify her from serving as an officer of an independent agency with so much power to control the public airwaves. There’s also a risk that the President could designate her as Chair after she’s confirmed, as he did with the radical Lina Khan on the Federal Trade Commission.

The Senate Commerce Committee plans to hold a confirmation hearing for Ms. Sohn next week, and Senators of both parties need to ask her some tough questions.

I am trying something new. This is a link to an article. It may or may not work. I have not tested it.

Please let me know if it does not work.
