Korea's Ever Growing Embrace of Same-sex Couples

Gallup Korea released a daily opinion poll on the 12th of December which included a section on individuals' perception of same-sex couples in Korea. Data may be the one thing I enjoy as much as queer Korea, so I made a couple of graphs for the main questions in the poll. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a hold of the actual data set (still working on that) but I thought I would create some graphs of the main findings to the five questions related to homosexuality.

Is all Marriage Created Equal?


After watching the now stratospheric speech by Panti Bliss in the Abbey theatre I had an uncomfortable feeling. Why was ‘she’ so angry at ‘me’? Why did she repeatedly utter the words ‘I check myself’ almost to the point of complete irritation. Why was I so annoyed?

10 Magazine poll: And the winners are... with Alexa ranking goodness

With hat tips and congratulations, the 10 Magazine poll asking readers' favorite Korean blogs is over. With that goes an odd sort of voting - only one blog could be chosen as 'the best', and three blogs taking a majority of the vote. Considering there's 'over 300 English blogs on Korea' according to 10 Magazine (I read almost 100 of them myself), that's a bit surprising. There's nothing really at stake, and frankly I have no need to satiate my ego by a poll.
