Darcy, a.k.a. Queer Girl, is your number one fan. They're a fat feminist from California who doodles hearts in the corners of their Gay Agenda. They're living through a pandemic, they're on Twitter, and they think you should drink more water! They also wanna make you laugh.

Darcy has written 376 articles for us.


  1. Also though, @leapfrog, I’ve felt exactly the same way about books yitled “The _insert professional dude_’s daughter/wife/sister/great-grand-niece”.

  2. I feel called upon to post some Gal Cando content:

      • If it helps I messed up yesterday too and felt the same way @amidola.

        Appreciate the Cando attitude!

        Hope you’re doing ok, considering. Can’t imagine how exhausted you must be rn. Sending love and tea/whatever your tea equivalent is 💜☕

        • My tea is coffee;-)

          We’re not nearly as badly off as some places, but still, it’s been two months, and if there’s another wave after easing lockdown, I’m just going to sit in a corner and cry.

          Also, I really hope that we’re going to have a very necessary conversation about how feminism has failed and why it has in the last few decades.
