TGIF! Let’s take a look at all the fuckery the world has delivered to our doorsteps this fine week!
If you’ve got a non-December birthday, then listen up — you’ve got it made! Your birthday is not eclipsed by holiday cheer, capitalism, Santa and Jesus. So why don’t you help make our neglected birthday special?
“I’d actually use this, maybe even daily, but I’d absolutely hate knowing it existed somewhere in my kitchen. It’d be like the broom in the closet, but for your cabinets. Like you need it, but it’s always in the way and there’s really no way to conceal it.”
You could spend your afternoon making an advent calendar on this very first day of December!
“Why do I do this? Because it needs to be done. Our schools and communities need to be safer for our young people, we are losing too many of them. I’m not going to sit and wait with naivety that our government or schools are going to lead that.”
“What a strange way to end the year. How strange to talk of personal love, right now, as though we can separate it out from love for everyone who is suffering and endangered. But queer love can and must encompass that—what are we here for if not to create new ways of loving, new communities of care, and a world with less repression and hatred?”
Even the most organized freelancers could probably stand to be a little more organized.
“Family and friends tend to recognize her and her boyfriend and pretend that I don’t exist, mostly because they have been together longer and queer relationships are not respected or recognized.”
When the election results came in, it had already been a month since I gave up on trying to fix my own mental health issues. And so it turned out that the worst day of our generation collided with my own personal low.
Obviously, a lot of toys you’d buy for a cis woman are great, but also, let’s be real, trans women have some special needs and desires.
A witchy episode of Bob’s Burgers, the recipe for Raquel’s Scorpio Mesquite, an empowering playlist, Words With Witches with Rachel, Heather’s first New Moon ritual, a discussion about Garth Nix’s Abhorsen Trilogy, and more!
The Gazelle vibrator combines a classic sex toy shape with lines vaguely evocative of animal traits in a way that’s surprisingly smooth and sleek.
Did your friend/relative/coworker have a baby recently? Give a gift that shows you see how exhausted they are and you care.
The Escalation has officially begun. These are your super-secret marching orders.
Calling your reps, figuring out what kind of shirt you’re wearing, making babies laugh, saving money, a Wonder Woman tiara, and more!
Sandcastles, Florence Henderson, scissoring scissoring scissoring, Evan Rachel Wood sure is hot and good at her job, queer roller derby, fight depression with awakeness, and so much more!
This one goes out to all my vegetarian and vegan cuties.
Sleep orgasms, how to start sexting, third-rail erotica, Millennial relationships through the lens of capitalism, porn after January 20 and more.
Being a little scary is such a great look. It’s why so many people are into Scorpios and Slytherins.
Tegan and Sara on your tiny desk, stand up for Standing Rock, sanctuary cities, pessimism, STEM women in the time of Trump, and so much more!
