Jackie Chan’s Daughter Etta Ng is Thankful She Came Out This Sunday Funday

Hello friends! First things first: It’s J. Crew’s lesbian season! I love fall, because the J. Crew catalog is full of lanky lesbians with similar hair throwing their arms over each other in terribly strange and loving ways. It’s a joy and a reminder: cuffing season is here.

I am in a crazy bananas time of my life right now and I feel like this week has flown by while also taking twenty years. This is only more proof to my theory that time is fake because how can a week feel long and short at the same time? But you know, I’m not a scientist. Anyway, I’m coming at you this week with some rays of sunshine in this overall garbage fire of a world.

Did You Know We Interviewed Ani DiFranco Last Week???

It’s honestly such a good interview my friends. Go read it right now. It’s so so good. Look, here’s my favorite part.

Every time I leave my house and I go on tour the first thing that happens is I get in a taxi and the person driving becomes my new best friend. And each of us treats each other kindly, with respect, we talk about what’s important to us, and I have positive experiences and I feel like this is what’s happening, this is the real us. It’s a lie, it’s a big lie that they foist upon us through this incredible bully-pulpit of the media: that we are each other’s enemy, that we’re a threat to each other. None of that is true, and I think the more that you leave your house and you go and associate with people and I swear you will become more hopeful.

Go finish reading it! It’s so good! Love you mean it! Happy Sunday!

  1. Jackie Chan’s daughter is gay! YAYYY!!! That makes me so happy for some reason. Like my childhood has been validated.

    On a side note: Has anyone seen Raven’s House? That show has so many saphic undertones. Nia and Tess are like baby gay. Those two are more than just friends… Reminds me of my baby gay self.

  2. five-hour trek that included 14 tacos. I wonder how many she would get if she had done this in Los Angeles

    • Depends on the neighborhood and day. In the part of DTLA I work at one can walk by 6-8(depending on the day) taco joints, stands, and trucks in a short 4 block radius in the day time.

  3. Please tell me, I’m not the only one who noticed the story about eating 14 tacos ?! Landed the writer to East Passyunk Ave., I mean, if I wasn’t paying attention, I might mistake that street name for something else ?
