My keratocystic odontogenic tumor was finally cut out of me earlier this week, and now I have a large gap where it used to be that needs to slowly fill with the appropriate tissues. The procedure was carried out by three surgeons and was rather intense, including carefully separating my exposed inferior alveolar nerve from tumor tissue, but they put me back together so well that my jaw did not need to be wired and I can even speak fairly well. I am now recovering quite comfortably thanks to good medication. I am on a liquid diet for a few days but will be on a soft diet before the week is over. Also of note: At no point in time did anyone at the hospital ask me which three oral surgeons I find the sexiest in the whole clinic, yet those were coincidentally the very three who did the job.

Over the past few weeks, I have been trying to lose some weight in order to lower my blood pressure before my imminent surgery. That plan evidently worked, because when I went in for pre‐surgical testing a few days ago, the physician there thought it incongruous that I should say I have a history of hypertension when her measurements showed it to be fine. (She added that my blood pressure was like a child’s, apparently a good thing.) Then the technician who administered the electrocardiogram seemed impressed by the results and told me I am “very normal” and that she enjoys seeing results turn out that well.

It was a little unsettling to buy so much soup, sauce and baby food at the supermarket for when I will be recovering from my oral surgery next week. 😬

Our movement has become martyrs without a cause. Instead of viewing the world as a place that needs fixed, the new breed of activist only sees it as broken.

My Surgery Is Nigh

The time has finally come when the keratocystic odontogenic tumor (KCOT) about which I have been complaining for more than a year will be cut out of me. A few facts about my procedure: …

Secularists and Humanists, proponents of human rights and democratic values, ethnic and religious minorities, and LGBT people of the Near East, North Africa and South and Central Asia are in a crisis situation and need support, but because their oppressors are by and large Islamic extremists, organizations elsewhere in the world are often too afraid of appearing “Islamophobic” to condemn it, let alone do anything substantial about their plight. By defending radical Islam as an acceptable cultural institution of the region, their oppression and suppression will continue, and their quality of life will continue to be undermined, even destroyed.
Here is what I don't understand, since I came to the United States, I received about 15,000 emails of people from all across the Arab world, Pakistan,...

Introduction
✓⃝  Gay, progressive/leftist, atheist/secular Jewish–New Yorker fascinated with language, old and/or ethnic music, gay historical research etc.

Copied from Facebook and slightly revised
Gay, progressive/leftist Jewish–New Yorker seeks your love and affection.

I am a gay, ideologically progressive Jewish–New Yorker, born in the Bronx of partly Ashkenazi and partly Mizraḥi ancestry. I am involved in the “bear” community. I moved to the neighborhood of Ramat Ben Yaʻaqob רמת בן יעקב (a.k.a Jackson Heights, Queens) in 2008 and am now involved in the social organizations here.

Interests:
 Linguistics, particularly orthography, etymology and phonology.
▸ Atheism and Humanism, particularly the preservation by secularization of Jewish, Near Eastern, Central Asian and North African culture.
▸ Jewish, Near Eastern, Central Asian and North African music!
▸ Documentary photography. Look at all the pictures I’ve taken!

☞ My e-mail address is not elyaqim at gmail dot com! Someone else is receiving your letters to me if you send them to that address. I am also not the person with the user name elyaqim on Twitter.

☞ I tend to overuse characters beyond Unicode’s Basic Multilingual Plane in my content. If you see rectangles (▯▯▯▯) or question marks (????) in my text, you may want to download a free font that supports those characters.
