thenewinquiry: Along with our hunger for grief comes impatience with emotional restraint. From the tearful confrontations of Intervention to the acting out of The Bad Girls Club, in our popular entertainments—period dramas like Downton Abbeybeing the rare exception—there’s nary a stiff upper lip in sight….

butchnorfemme: peacelovequeer: ELLE: I’m watching a video of you two. Rashida Jones: Are you watching our lesbian video on YouTube? Amy Poehler: Yeah, it’s pretty funny. Someone put together all the scenes of Ann and Leslie and then put a Counting Crows song to it. It looks like Parks and Rec is a love story about two women. ELLE: Are you guys hugging right now? Rashida Jones: Actually,...

Why We're Not Digitizing Zines →
thelalatheory: Yeah this is interesting. I’m not a librarian but issues like this interest me personally because I’ve published so many zines (and so have many of my friends) and also because I have a hobbyist interest in making collections and archives and such.

Never underestimate the huge middle finger you are giving to the world when you...– Frances Lockie (via queerfatfemme)
I did it again.
queerandpresentdanger: I’ve created fatnudes to highlight fat, naked bodies. I’m a BIG believer in the power of visibility and I feel like a huge stepping stone in accepting and then loving ourselves as fat people is seeing bodies that look like ours represented. Also they’re just really pretty to look at, duh. So it’d be really cute if you followed. It’d be cuter to signal boost. And it would...
Anonymous asked: That moment when you wonder to yourself, "am I fat enough for this?" and you realize that you probably aren't.
