And the answer is...


well, before we get to that, let me drag this out a bit more by telling you what I see. Perhaps you'll get to my point before you read it once you've read the hints from my perspective.

Hint #1 is a rainbow, similar in colour spectrum to that found on most gay pride parades though certainly not exact. It is a symbol of diversity in sexuality, non-sexuality, lifestyles and peoples.

Hint #2 is a straight line. This straight line happens to be on a shirt worn by a woman. The shirt is brown. The important part is the straight line (though the fact that I am calling it straight is of minimal importance).

Hint #3 is a question mark locked in a circle. Both of these parts are important. The former because it suggests curiosity, the latter because of the circle (which is in stark contrast to a straight line).

Hint #4 are hands raised in the air. As an educator, this is a familiar sight that is unfortunately less familiar than one would hope. Also, there are uniforms on - I am unfamiliar with uniforms at the schools I have experience in. Focus on the hands in the air - probably wanting to ask (or answer) questions.

Hint #5 is an image of a classroom. This is likely of a community colle judging by the room size and the furniture in the room, though it isn't necessarily so. There is somebody speaking at the front of the room and the students are, for the most part, attentive to what she is speaking about.

Hint #6 is a video about Reteaching Gender and Sexuality. A damned powerful video - that is worth watching numerous times and imagining what can be done with that kind of philosophy.

And the answer is... that I am doing something with that philosophy. What it is will be revealed in less than 48 hours. But I like games, and imagine that some of you might still be willing to play a long with me...


  1. You are so on the right path here, Neal. I can't wait to see where this is going.

  2. Seriously, I'm so excited, if I could sit on the edge of my seat the entire 48 hours, I would. I can't wait to find out! :)

  3. You guys are far too kind. I hope I don't disappoint you...

  4. Don't worry about disappointing us. Move forward confidently with your plan, and don't even consider the possibility of failure.
    In the end, you have to answer only to yourself. If you've done the best you can, you can't ask for anything more.
    Good luck.
