Hello again.

Well, hi.  I guess it's been a while.

A lot's happened.  Three jobs.  (Four if you count getting laid off, then rehired two weeks later.)  I turned thirty.  I came out as trans and started taking hormones.  Rowdy and I moved in together, then two years later moved out again, but we still see each other and still consider each other family.  I had cancer, but I got better.  (Melanoma, successfully removed surgically.)  I live in an old barn out in the woods now, which is kind of nice.

I've been plenty active on my Tumblr, so if you want more moment-to-moment updates on what I've been up to, albeit mixed in with random arguments and shitposting in a format that's frustratingly difficult to search or sort, that might give you an idea.

I'd like to say "I've just been so busy," as an excuse for neglecting this blog, but the truth is probably somewhere between "I've been drastically underestimating how bad my mental health issues really were" and "I've been ashamed that I don't have as much weird sex as I used to, and am not as confident speaking about sex from the perspective of someone who is no longer a cute slutty girl."

Well, I mean, let's be clear here, I'm still fucking cute.

    1. I still need to become a COWBOY, a BILLIONAIRE, and for the very best kind of romance novels, a DINOSAUR.

  5. I have been thinking about you a bunch lately!

    So good to read you, maybe the world would love more perspectives from cute been-there-done-that women?

  7. Wow I'm happy to see this! I found your blog a few years back and read through the whole thing (it took me weeks!), then naturally became a regular on this page. It helped me so much through a weird time of self discovery. Anyway, I guess I'm just taking my chance to say thank you! Glad to read you again!

  9. Welcome back - I am glad I have not removed this from my blogroll.

    Your missing stair article is still one of my most recommended links when I try to explain the concept to other people.

    Hope to read more from you again.

  10. You are the CUTEST! And welcome back! Your blog posts helped me so much in defining how I felt about feminism, bdsm, sex, etc. I've been following you on Tumblr, but it would be great to hear any more in-depth thoughts you have on...literally any topic really. This episode of Queer Eye, for one: https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2018/07/06/queer-eye-skyler-transgender-season-2/

  11. Yay, I'm glad you're back! When my favorite bloggers go silent I worry about whether they're okay sometimes.

  12. Welcome back!
    I found your blog back in 2012 and it really resonated with me. Looking forward to hearing about your cute middle aged pervert life.

  13. I knew I missed this blog with a passion, but I never knew just how much until I saw this post! Shivers! Tears!

    You do you Cliff, and you be healthy, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't hope that includes this blog.

  14. I loved this blog. I really appreciate your perspective on relationships and sexuality, it helped shape a lot of ideas I have on how I myself want to live. So I'm glad to see an update! And I'm even happier to know you are ok and doing well.
    I concur with the previous comment - I hope for more updates but you and your health always comes first. Take care!

  15. I am SO HAPPY to see new posts here, and to read that you're doing so well! I was just sharing your post "Sex anyway" with a friend after a conversation she and I had, and I was lamenting that you don't post anymore, and I didn't know what you were up to. But you're back! Hooray!

  16. Cliff! Welcome back! I've been keeping up with your tumblr but I've been missing this blog - it's been a favorite for years and I still revisit some old posts occasionally.

  17. Man, go figure you'd come back like a month or two after I stopped obsessively checking! *shakes fist*

  19. Fuck yes! I follow your Tumblr sporadically but with enthusiasm (you've always got something to say that makes me smile or think or both, even the shitposts), but I also missed this blog. :D Hurray! :D
