I’ve always considered myself to be “transgender.” No, it has nothing to do with bathrooms. My biological apparatus matches both my birth certificate and sense of reality. [Read More]

Like most Catholic-schooled girls who grew up in the 1970s, I learned about sex (including where it was done, how it was done, to whom it was done and if, in fact, it was done) by reading several dog-eared Jacqueline Susann novels. [Read More]

You know what I really resent? I resent it when someone tells me I should vote for, or support, or give a pass to someone because it will be a “historic moment.” [Read More]
Commentary: For the Trump family, Daddy Donald knows best Commentary: For the Trump family, Daddy Donald knows best
5 weeks ago - - CHRISTINE FLOWERS
There is no way to avoid sounding like a Trump supporter with this column. I’ve already been accused of going over to the dark side by defending The Donald against accusations that he wanted to imprison women who had abortions and that he cheered on a campaign manager prone to domestic violence.

The first time I felt it, I was a first-year law student desperately trying to figure out why she was getting bottom-basement grades when she’d been on the honor roll most of her pampered life. It was three quarters into a difficult academic year, and I was almost ready to call it quits. [Read More]

It’s been a long time since I’ve written about the 2006 version of the Scottsboro Nine. About a decade ago, I had occasion to knock out a column about them every few months, both during and after the investigation. The case, like Nosferatu, refused to die. [Read More]
Commentary: Boy-abusing women no different than girl-abusing men Commentary: Boy-abusing women no different than girl-abusing men
