No Filter: Laura Jane Grace And Béatrice Martin Arm Wrestle In A Park Because Why Not

Welcome back to No Filter, an intellectually stimulating trip through the annals of Hollywood Instagram. This week has been very busy for everyone with Kristen Stewart-related feelings, but there’s a whole lot more to get through. Without further ado, here are the most (arbitrarily) important social media moments from this week’s news cycle.

Kaki King’s small child weighs in on the impending election  (but honestly I thought it was this).
I hate it when people Instagram pictures of themselves in Snapchat filters but uh, I’m gonna let AzMarie Livingston get away with it just this once.

National Girlfriend day showed up to make those of us who are bitter FEEL EVEN MORE BITTER but that’s OK because look how cute these two are.

I’ve been rewatching Sex and the City for whatever reason and this video of Hari Nef is giving me straight up Carrie Bradshaw.

I mean, Samira has some pretty cute moves.

You know what’s really great? Seeing Laura Jane Grace in an affectionate, lovely relationship with this very cute lady who arm wrestles with her in parks.

Mey’s girlfriend Demi Lovato has a really gorgeous jacket. What a great jacket, Demi.

Jiz Lee, in with an update on the butch ballet.

Esteemed author Gabby Rivera looks like she’s ready to sell me some Life Cereal.

Join us next week, when Laura and Beatrice try thumb wrestling at the zoo.

    Laura Jane and Jiz Lee bring it again with the awesomeness! Gosh, where can we meet people like either one of them?

  3. Sarah Gorden and Rachel Daly from the women’s soccer league if you want to feel really bitter about how you will never have a great relationship.

  4. Rey

    I would 1000% percent go to see a butch ballet performance.

  5. I have no idea who Jiz Lee is but is it just me or does she really look like Leisha Hailey?
