See a comment that needs to be here? Let me know! Tag me [at] queergirl.
I sea what you did there, Queer Girl.
I don’t know much about Sirens but let me tell you Kristana, the lyric “I wanna be where the people are” from the little mermaid sure hits differently these days!
Out where they walk,
Out where they run,
Out where they die,
Just so I’m clear, we are back to “Love is not a lie”? So hard to keep up…. Did Stef sign off on this?
lol! ftr I have always been at ‘love is not a lie’ but like sometimes love is a dog or your family or your chosen family or a community of queers on the internet
(and also sometimes it’s a partner i mean it COULD happen, like theoretically, i hear that earthlings sometimes do find other earthlings they choose to marry!)
Thank you QG for making me feel 100% secure in commenting
you’ll always be 100% in my book sals (can i call you sals)
You and only you can. I will start calling you QGs in return.
Thank you Queer Girl !
Wow, those pics of Janelle-as-a-mermaid sure made an impact on my subconscious. So glad Autostraddle rules my psyche !
“oh, and the sex, obviously”
to be the new “but make it fashion”
a catchphrase for a more hopeful time! :-D
Yaay thank you QG and Cleo! I will pass the good news on to Natasha (and the rest of my hats, which I have also named, because why not?). I will let you know if Hayley’s hat texts her back.
This is inspiring maybe I’ll name my shoes
This makes me so happy!
