Hi there, pals! You’re doing so great. I’m so glad you’re here. Would you care for a glass of water?

This week, there was a lot of Carol in our lives. I think this one was my absolute favorite.

Riese stumped us (well, me) with a quiz about the lesbian ’90s.

Need a game to play? A.E. recommends Lost Wage Rampage.

PETRA SOLANO BISEXUAL! OKAY? OKAY! (Thanks, Valerie!)

Mey’s got all the fashion inspiration we could ever need in Style Thief: How To Dress Like Lesbian Jesus Hayley Kiyoko.

Archie co-wrote and illustrated this guide to they/them pronouns that you can pre-order right now for your very own self! Or a friend or parent! Or your local library!

From Carolyn: How To Eat Ass. This series is so good.

On Drawn to Comics: “A Quick and Easy Guide to They/Them Pronouns” Is Quick, Easy and Spectacular:

The Ye/Thou Pronoun Award to Chandra and Monique:

Chandra: Great resource! When people try to argue that “they” can never be singular, I respond that they’d better not use singular “you” then either, because it underwent the very same grammatical shift several hundred years ago and that’s why we don’t use “thou” anymore. / Monique: Next time someone balks about using they/them pronouns for grammatical reasons I’m going to tell them I also accept ye/thou.

  1. So I just managed to find my way into an advance screening of Love, Simon! It was pretty good! I’m not over the moon about it, but if you wanted to see a movie about being awkward and teenage and gay with plenty of High School drama, that’s exactly what it is.
