Well happy Independence Day, America! It’s time for picnics and ice cream and launching explosives into the air with friends and family wheeee! Also, in the grand tradition of holiday open threads past, we have an open thread! [See: Christmakwanza Open Thread: Share Your Homo-Holiday Feelings! and Terrible/AWESOME Thanksgiving Open Thread For all Your Homo Holiday Feelings]
We have a lot of feelings about how f*cked up this country is, and I was about to start listing them, but then Kate Moennig basically came out on Twitter so I stopped caring for a second. I mean, obviously only lesbians care about homophobia and the environment, right?
It’s a particular experience to celebrate a country who refuses to give you full citizenship rights, yeah? How do you reconcile that? I think most of us ‘reconcile’ a lot of things via alcohol / drugs / blogging, so probs we’ll just keep doing that.
So! Whatcha doing? Are you eating a lot of outdoorsy foods and exploding shit later tonight? Are fireworks legal in your state? How do you feel about Cool Whip? I feel like Cool Whip sales go up around this time of year because people make that fucking layer thing with the berries. And hey, what about you lovely people who don’t live in America and therefore can’t eat our Cool Whip or watch our videos on Hulu — how are you celebrating this very uneventful Sunday?
