No Filter: We All Need This Picture Of Stephanie Beatriz Today

Welcome back to No Filter. You know the drill; every week, we round up some queer celesbian Instagram and dissect it for our viewing pleasure. It’s been a fucked up couple of weeks, but now more than ever we need vapid fluff to offset a whole lotta darkness. Let’s do this thing.
As of this posting this video has 1084 views and I’m at least half of them. It’s fine.

It was Jenny Owen Youngs’ birthday yesterday so HAPPY BIRTHDAY JENNY, and congratulations on your new career as an… ostrich farmer?

I mean, OK, the media laughed at us for suggesting these two are dating but COME ON. These two are dating.

JIZ LEE RAN A HALF MARATHON and looks real cute. Can you win a marathon? I assume they won.

How bout this time Sara Ramirez shouted out our very own Gabby Rivera?

Stephanie Beatriz and a knife, I’ll be in my bunk.
Laura Jane Grace and Kate Bornstein are a shining light in this burning world.

This is actually a couple of weeks old but maybe you’ll find Ellen Page in a Peaches hoodie as healing as I do.

This is a trifecta I can get behind.

Missing my brother @vindiesel ❤️

I really miss these two together, honestly.
Gaby Dunn is full of life lessons, this is but one of them.

Honestly I am finding this video therapeutic today.

    That picture of Stephanie Beatriz isn’t that great. It reminds me of alot of photos on facebook. Maybe if she was holding a chained tiger on a throne, I’d like it. Or if she looked happy. This is probably the first “sexual” picture that I honestly do not find appealing.

    • Lex

      There’s boobage and a chain on said boobage…but maybe you like tigers more and want like a Frank Frazetta scene.

      I would be down wit that and getting her a bigger knife, specifically a dagger with an enameled hilt.

          • Meow. ;)

  2. Guys can we talk about the new Veronicas video directed by/starring Ruby Rose and her very serious painkiller addiction, with bonus ‘toxic masculinity is for lesbians, too!’

      • It’s really, really bad! It glamorises violence and addiction and sexualises lesbian couples! Manic pixie dream girl utter madness! Ruby Rose uses so many lingering shots of her own face!

        Link for anyone who hasn’t seen it:

    But like, there is a nake guy in the grass behind carrie brownstein right?

  4. Ah, Stephanie Beatriz… one of my biggest crushes. Excuse me while I swoon.

  5. Sage

    I’m probably not the first one to say this but, Jizz Lee looks a lot like Leisha Hailey!

    • I think she’s Leisha Hailey every time I see a picture of her.

  6. Sage

    I agree with Google, she’s trying too hard.

    • *Wraps Stephanie in bubblewrap and has a viral meltdown* Leave Stephanie alone!

      In all seriousness though, do we really have to be SO very critical of other womens’ appearance in the Donald era? :(

  7. I hate to say it but I think the “O yeah” from Abbi Jacobson’s picture was for the nearly naked guy in the background but in a sarcastic way.
