Not y’all missing out on a good FREE time because you’re worried about the feelings of cishet men — couldn’t be me.

I’M AN IT GIRL BECAUSE I HAVE THE SAME TASER AND OTHER ESSENTIALS! Also, don’t yell my name when you see me in the streets — chill.


And I would have gotten away with it too if it wasn’t for you meddling friends 💀

Stop questioning your friends when they suddenly say their goodbyes — just say congrats and let them be on their way.

Respectfully requesting, you sit on my face. #wlw #lgbtq #gayaf #lesbian #stem #ledollarbean

  1. Watched the person cartwheel through that door at least three times lolol

    The one thing I have a hard time w/ on tiktok is when the dialogue doesn’t quite match their mouths (b/c they’re doing the thing where it’s dubbed from another video) and then there’s also text which says something different – my brain gets overwhelmed and I have to watch it like four times to put all the pieces together. Is this am ‘I’m getting old’ thing or a ‘You should get your brain checked’ thing?
