Interface: reflections of an ethnic toygirl.

Yue A.

La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia.

This essay interrogates the colonial modernity of Anglo-Australian lesbian hegemony through an experimental text which plays with the aesthetics of cyberspace. Mobilizing the hypertext mark up language (HTML) form of the Internet, it spatializes the creative, the erotic, and the political that landscape the vicissitudes of everyday life for a lesbian of Southeast Asian background living in Australia. "interface" performs as a tryst that drives the queer body politic through the postcolonial in-formations of color, race, gender and identity. This text bears indelible marks from multiple sites and sources: the charges of electronic conversations and etchings on the World Wide Web; the raw pulp of inner-urban graffiti scrawls; passionate voicemails; racist policies in queer venues; fury banner posts; luscious lesbian cinema screenings; sexy fantasy malls; and fleshy style shopping.

Now I can see why Mimi Smartypants went all the way to China to get one of those little Chinese babies. I didn't know they could do party tricks! I may have to go get one of those myself!

Congress Asks NIH to Justify More Than 160 Research Projects
From today's Chronicle of Higher Education
Congress this month asked the National Institutes of Health to justify its support of more than 160 academic studies that involve sexual behavior, HIV transmission, or alcohol and drug use, after several lawmakers criticized some research projects in those areas as an apparent waste of taxpayer money.
Congress "asked NIH to explain the medical benefits hoped to be derived from the studies, and we're in the process of doing that," John T. Burklow, an NIH spokesman, said on Friday. Rep. Mike Ferguson, a New Jersey Republican, cited studies about the sexual health of older men and a research project on "prostitute masseuses." Another congressman, Rep. Joseph R. Pitts, a Pennsylvania Republican, cited a study of sexual arousal among people viewing pornography. "It's difficult to comprehend what medical benefit, what public-health benefit, could be derived," said Mr. Ferguson at the hearing. "Perhaps there are some, but when you're weighing it against competing projects, it's very difficult to see how that can be justified."
