Hello, perfect friends! Did you know there is an app (several, I assume) that will track your cycles, if you have them, and tell you when things are happening in your body? I mention this because you’d think, at 35, I would understand that when I feel like crying all day long, drive fairly badly, and stop on the way home for a bottle of whisky and a cheese danish, it just might have to do with my cycle? But no, I always just assumed I was simply having a terrible day. Now, thanks to an app, I know when I am both having a terrible day and ovulating! Thanks, technology!
(That was yesterday. The danish helped!)
This week, Reneice made the most beautiful buttermilk biscuits.

Mal! Blum! New! Music! Eeeeeee!
Alexis re-wrote a bunch of popular movies to be super gay in The Black Lesbian Movie Project. These sound so good!
Rachel wrote about dating someone who’s intro astrology when you’re so skeptical your name might as well be Dana Scully. It’s possible, people! Our differing passions and interests make the world go ’round. Truly.
The L Word reboot is on its way. Let’s go lesbians! Let’s go!
I LOVED THIS SO DAMN MUCH: Proudly Black, Fat, Queer and Making a Home for Myself in Cosplay.
The straights are at it again. One of the items on Straight People Watch this week is a sex button. A SEX button! A sex BUTTON. On your nightstand! Which you push! When you want! To have sex! With your spouse! Instead! Of asking them!
Finally, Heather reviewed Rebecca Henderson, the actor who played overalls-clad Lizzy in Russian Doll! They talked about their cats!

And this week’s Comment Award Title Award goes to “Bring Me Flours”
A+ with standing ovation for The Bring Me Flours Award
2 awards for me this week? Wow thanks QG
You are very generous
And Caitlin, I totally get it.
Team Paw Patrol! Woo!
you jest but i teach preschool so i’m intimately familiar with every single paw patrol pup, but only when spoken in two year old pidgin
Caitlin! You teach preschool! That’s my dream job!
teach is a strong word ’cause they’re two, but yes! i wrangle preschoolers! they’re adorable, full of energy, and very invested in learning everything about the world, which are all things i aspire to
On the period tracker app: I’m very fond of Clue. Free app, no nonsense, nothing pink. Science based. Just did a quick check, and I didn’t see any gendered words. You can add or remove features to track. But my favourite feature is the automatic calculations on cyles, because I have an irregular cycle. When I visit my gyno I just grab my phone and she has all the info she needs and it’s super handy. Only wish the notes worked easier.
Just noticed that a feature on their site is currently about being trans and having a period: https://helloclue.com/articles/cycle-a-z/what-it's-like-to-get-your-period-when-you're-trans
I’ve been using Clue too! I love that the app doesn’t seem inherently femme.
I do the same thing, just hand my phone to my Gyno but I use P-Tracker
It has some features for people trying to conceive that I never used like entering when you had sex and when you get symptoms before your ovulation…
I’ve been using P Tracker since 2011! Love it ❣️

Thank goddess for the comment awards! Otherwise I would have missed another riveting installment of Straight People Watch.
so important to keep an eye on those shifty straights
Wow! thank you and thank you most to Danase – i can’t wait to see what she says in another 7 months.
Hang on, wasn’t the sweet little figs comment on the fingernails article, not the astrology one?
