Happy blazing Monday! I hope it’s nice enough to open the windows where you live and breathe in some fresh air, and maybe stick your face in some sunshine for a minute!
Queer as in F*ck You
+ Woman Comes Out at 44, Proving It’s Never Too Late to Be Yourself. Welcome to the party! So much hummus. Also hey just for the record, I realize that while the headline of this Also.Also.Also alludes to this link about a 44-year-old woman coming out, the feature image depicts two women who seem to be much younger than 44, which feels slightly weird and wrong. But here’s the thing: while I was searching for a cool feature image, 75% of the results for “lesbian” were skinny white 20-something women pretending to eat each other’s underwear, and I became so ragey that all I wanted to do was highlight an image where two women of color weren’t eating each other’s clothes and in fact seemed totally normal and just like us, actually. So that’s that.
