Also.Also.Also: Cara Delevingne’s Home Has a Vagina Appreciation Tunnel, That Checks Out

Today is the day that I found out the teens of the new Gossip Girl won’t be given the freedom to just be rich assholes? And really, my happiness hasn’t returned since.


Queer as in F*ck You

Cara Delevingne’s house has an vagina tunnel within, and if we are honest with ourselves for just a moment, we always knew we’d end up here.

Other things in Cara Delevingne’s home include:

  • Mad Hatter’s Tea Party themed closet
  • A literal “jungle theme”
  • Flamingo wallpaper
  • A chandelier made entirely out of horse straps
  • A pinball machine from the Playboy mansion
  • Dogs
  • “Beverly Hills Hotel” aesthetics
  • And a touch of “Old English style,” just for class.
  • Ok yes, here’s the vagina quote: “I come in here to think, I come in here to create — I feel inspired in the vagina tunnel”

  1. Not sure if you’ve seen the news, but I’m really excited about what’s happening in Germany! There’s a soccer match Germany – Hungary in Munich today, so the city of Munich wanted to light up the stadium in rainbow colors to protest the homophobic and transphobic government in Hungary (they just passed a law that forbids schools to teach kids about queer and trans stuff to “protect them from pedophilia”). But the UEFA, the European soccer league didn’t allow it because apparently rainbow flags are “too political”. So now everyone us super pissed and all the German news are talking about it, a lot of cities are putting up rainbow flags and lighting stadiums and they are planning to hand out 10000 rainbow flags in the stadium in Munich for the match tonight. I don’t know if you understand this, but this kind of stuff NEVER happens here. Obviously the same politicians that normally refuse to give us our rights are now super performative allies, but I don’t even care because it’s super exciting and unexpected!!
