Hello if it’s your birthday today we have that in common so HAPPY BIRTHDAY! ? ? ? If it’s not your birthday, I still hope you have a terrific day. I’ve started using videos more in my stories on Instagram and it’s a real journey. A real growth experience. I usually avoid looking at my face so it’s startling when it’s right there on purpose and I’m talking to it? And honestly I’ve tried going into selfies/selfie videos with the empowerment mindset, I really have! I’m just not there yet. I still feel like the teenager who wanted to try out for cheerleading but never did because I never wanted anyone to know what I wanted, which was to wear a cute outfit and put ribbons in my hair and yell things that rhyme! Taking a selfie is like that — I don’t want anyone to know that I wish I felt cute! Anyway hi if you’re new here, this is my confession booth and you are my Real World camera!!! Thank you! Have a nice day!!
Queer as in F*ck You
This Elderly Lesbian Who Was ‘Slapped and Told That Homosexuals Burn in Hell’ Is Suing Her Care Home. They’re expecting a ruling in this case sometime in the next few weeks.
This gave me so much joy! And listen, reading it on a screen is one thing, hearing the story on the radio is a whole glorious other thing. Ughghghhhh it was a gift! I got kinda sad about something on Wednesday afternoon and then remembered this happened and felt 45% better. ‘Pads And Tampons And The Problems With Periods:’ All-Male Committee Hears Arizona Bill On Feminine Hygiene Products In Prison. To learn even more about this bill and why it’s beyond necessary: 12 Pads A Month, No Tampons: Is That Enough For Arizona’s Incarcerated Women? (narrator: “it is not.”)
Saw This, Thought of You
