    Drachma

    Forsi minħabba t-trobbija tagħna, ħafna minna jaħsbu li l-ispiritwalità u s–sesswalità huma għedewwa ta’ xulxin. Nażżarda ngħid li għal min jaqa’ taħt l-ispektrum tar-realtà gay din it-taqtigħa taf tkun aktar qawwija, speċjalment għal dawk li għadhom jaħsbu li l-imħabba bejn raġel u raġel, jew mara u mara, hi ħażina. Fil-każ ...

    Ikolli nammetti li, anke jekk mhux il-ħin kollu, noqgħod attenta ħafna għal-lingwaġġ użat mit-tfal. Kull kelma li tingħad, hemm storja warajha. Iżda l-mistoqsija li dejjem tkun qed tberren f’moħħi hi, it-tfal huma verament konxji tal-kliem li qed jużaw? Meta nisma’ lil xi tifla tuża kelma flok oħra jew verb ikkonjugat ...
