No Filter: Megan Rapinoe Says Stay In Your Home, and Ashley Benson is Making Memes

Hello my loves, welcome back to another installment of No Filter, the column wherein I take you through the virtual halls of gay celebrity Instagram! On this week’s episode, I’ve included some pre-social distancing images, just for clarity!


Me? Just looking at the sky. No reason.


Thank you Hayley, we needed this!


BRB plastering this all over my walls so I can find strength!


Listen to Megan!


Socially distant but cute as hell!

I thought to myself this morning about everything that’s going on during my morning meditation, which I try to do as much as possible… ⁣ ⁣ I was thinking how maybe the earth needs a time to rest… they have been going through so much pain (in my mind Earth pronouns are they/them). And maybe we as humans needed a tough realization of how beautiful it is to be alive, healthy, and safe. Some of us have had the privilege to be with no realization of how lucky we are… ⁣ ⁣ Take this time to read, write, begin that brand or idea you have been holding off, check on your love ones, the ones you call family. ⁣ ⁣ Remember to keep sane and positive, this can seem like the hardest one to do and confront. I’m trying to remind myself that everything will be all right if we make smart decisions. If you must go outside remember to wash your hands more frequently than before and I don’t get into large crowds. You could be saving thousands of lives just by doing so. You know, these can seem like scary times, but I am with you, I hear you, and love you. ⁣ ⁣ Tell me how is your heart today?⁣ ⁣ Image description: A photo of myself laying across an orange lovesofa in a purple gown with my eyes closed lounging. A photo of myself pretty much in bliss♥️

  1. Christina! Excellent VapidFluff content this week (and every week). Where else could I see beautiful women wearing headlamps and purple velvet?

    Plus I’m excited to see Fawzia Mirza here.
