I spend a lot of time thinking about how I’d definitely break my no-marriage vows for Buffy Summers, and how to tell people about my fucking awkward mishaps without sounding contrived. (Sidenote: I just realized that “awkward fucking mishaps” and “fucking awkward mishaps” are not necessarily the same thing.)
Also, sometimes I space out thinking about how much I love cats.
(Full disclosure: I copy/pasted that from my OKC. Which I will almost certainly update again sooner than I will this.)

|Favorite Queer Books||
I’m 110% positive that all of my favorite books are already queer. Or at the very least, I can queer them with relative ease.
Movies: Stardust, Saved!, But I’m a Cheerleader!, Les Miserables, St. Trinian’s, D.E.B.S., Jeux d’Enfants (Love Me If You Dare), Penelope, Fur (An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus), Secretary, American History X, Dirty Girl, Bound, Hysteria, Dark Shadows.
I have a secret embarrassing love of romance narratives that do not end in torment.
For the Bible Tells Me So, The Line, Bullied, Fagbug, Blackfish
|Favorite TV Shows||
Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Hands down favorite. Escapist crime procedurals. (Castle, Bones, Rizzoli & Isles, even though UGH! queerbaiting.)
Florence + the Machine, Foxes, Bon Iver, Cat Power, Niki and the Dove, Marina and the Diamonds, M83, MGMT, Robyn, Frou Frou, Chvrches, Diplo, Yellow Claw, Pendulum, Metric, Tegan and Sara.
I like paninis.

…Our survival demands that we contribute all our strength to the destruction the class of women within which men appropriate women. This can be accomplished only by the destruction of heterosexuality as a social system which is based on the oppression of women by men and which produces the doctrine of the difference between the sexes to justify this oppression.
When you’re in love you never really know whether your elation comes from the qualities of the one you love, or if it attributes them to her; whether the light which surrounds her like a halo comes from you, from her, or from the meeting of your sparks.
It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not.
Let’s face it. We’re undone by each other. And if we’re not, we’re missing something. If this seems so clearly the case with grief, it is only because it was already the case with desire. One does not always stay intact. It may be that one wants to, or does, but it may also be that despite one’s best efforts, one is undone, in the face of the other, by the touch, by the scent, by the feel, by the prospect of the touch, by the memory of the feel.
Dream on it. Let your mind take you to places you would like to go, and then think about it and plan it and celebrate the possibilities. And don’t listen to anyone who doesn’t know how to dream.
Society honors its living conformists and its dead troublemakers.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
Looking back, I have this to regret, that too often when I loved, I did not say so.
