I had a really gorgeous day today that involved Apple Cider and buying all the Pumpkin Spice things from Trader Joe’s that I could have. I’m wishing you similar fall peace this weekend (and if you are in the path of Hurricane Ian or any of this worldwide epic flooding, I’m wishing you safety on top of that).


Queer as in F*ck You

I love this. I love it so much. I love it with everything I have.

Megan Thee Stallion Launches Mental Health Resoures Site For The Hot Girls. Megan thee Stallion, who’s been open in the past about her own depression, especially following the death of her mother and her survival of domestic abuse situation, has started a mental health resources site that’s directed for her fans. And sure, on its face, a lot of celebrities have done similar ventures, but mental health care is still rarely talked about in Black women’s communities and we know that for bisexuals in particular, there are statistically high rates of depression. When you put those two things together, what Megan is doing in this moment, the small ways that she’s taking mental health care and giving it life in the language of her communities? Whew. Here’s the site directly: Bad Bitches Have Bad Days, Too.

  1. everything i come across about the scandal rocking the elite chess scene (which, talk about top-tier introductory clauses) is just one more ‘sure, this might as well happen’ after another, so sure! they were cheating via vibrating butt toys that telegraphed ideal moves! why not!
