Savage Love

Posted in Architecture by mchambe2 on February 3, 2010

We chose Dan Savage’s column site to contribute to the blog.

Although Savage  is a self identified gay male and sex columnist, he answers questions about a  wide range of topics including those relating to sexuality, fetishes, bodily functions, medial queries, etiquette, relationship advice, political topics and more. We felt it was important to include because these are real people asking legitimate questions. The column is open to all types of people, not just LGBT specific, it is all inclusive. There is nothing Savage won’t discuss.

Everyone can benefit from this site because he expands the notion of queer and pleasure. His blatant honesty and ‘judgment free zone’ along with the honesty and curiousness of the questionnaires makes this site worthy because the information is by real people, for real people.

It is also important to think about the name of Dan Savage’s blog, The Stranger.

A “stranger” is someone unknown or unfamiliar. However, we can be strangers to ourselves AND strangers to others. By focusing on what makes us a “stranger,” we can tackle circumstances life leaves us and work to make things better. And this is exactly what Dan Savage does. He faces the “stranger” and makes them familiar. He shows everyone is different and for their own unique reasons, none of which are negative.

Dan Savage also includes his own stories and blog scenarios that he finds interesting and important. This relates him to his readers and his situations to other providers’ situations. He can truly help so many people.
