The Grudge delivery!
Whatever, man. I make an excellent scary box ghost.
Lamest box ghost ever.
Well played, old chap.
It was! (I literally just finished eating it) Bavarian bread is surprisingly tasty! I highly recommend it! It makes for great sandwich bread. (Or however else you want to use it. Either way, it’s really good!)That sounds delicious!!! :o
Bavarian bread makes for a surprisingly awesome grilled ham and cheese sandwich.
Well, not really "grilled". I just set the oven to broil and put the bread slices in with the ham on cheese on top and waited a little bit till the cheese melted and the bread was toasted.
Still awesome though!
It’s pretty fucking common, unfortunately.
It’s called femme invisibility in most queer circles. There’s a great article about a butch that decided to one day wear leggings here that pretty much sums up what it’s like to be queer and present yourself as even very slightly feminine. Not only do you get flak (or rejected) from your fellow queers, but you also have to put up with shit from non-queers that try to “convert” you back to straight or also assume your sexuality. Because the way you present yourself says a lot about who you’re attracted to, right?
There are all sorts of ways to be queer, not just one kit of clothes and hair and skin for everyone. Unfortunately, both queer and non-queer people alike forget that and instead try to pick apart the basic appearance of people to conclude if they “fit” or not. We are not Barbie Dolls molded to queer perfection, we are people with diverse needs, appearances, and sexualities.
There’s really only one thing to do about it: Keep doing what makes you happy. Because the people (queer or not) that tell you that you can’t be queer because of how you look are wrong, and more than that, they’re being stereotyping, narrow-minded and further stigmatizing an already stigmatized group.
It’s eerily similar to the same stereotyping bullshit that people spout off to categorize any minorities by saying "Black girls can’t do x…" and "Jewish boys don’t like x…." Stop right there, because I’m pretty sure you don’t know every single person of that race, sexuality, gender or creed on the planet, so you don’t get to make broad, sweeping statements about their persons.
I look pretty fucking “feminine,” whatever that means these days. I like looking feminine, I enjoy putting on makeup and lacy bras and garters. I also like getting off to girls. I really like getting off to girls in my makeup and lacy bras and garters. If that makes me somehow “less of” a queer, then my brain and body definitely weren’t aware of it. So anyone who tells me otherwise, I tend to just ignore. They’re on the wrong side of history, anyway, and just can’t handle all dis.
People who say that "This person" should look and act "This way" and "That person" should look and act "That way" just boggle my fucking mind.
Let other people be who they are and who they want to be. Seriously.

New Illustration: Space Sirens
The last remaining astronaut watched helplessly as his comrades left the ship one by one and were carried away. He told himself that he would not succumb the way his shipmates had; he knew he would struggle. But the creatures, if they could even be called that, somehow seemed to know him, and when his turn came and the singing of the cosmos reached a crescendo in his ears, his mind emptied of all but the desire to join them in the void. Gazing into the creature’s face, he mused on how tender, how gentle its embrace seemed to be, and even as his oxygen supply dwindled he did not resist.
Oh my <3
I don’t usually like posting things that are too “emo” but I haven’t really done much of anything lately and I actually DID this, so I’m sharing. It’s ink on paper, which I am not that great at working with yet but I like some of the stuff here. Enjoy.
Hey friend. *hug*
Been feeling the same way lately.
Here, have more virtual hugs. *hug hug hug hug* For both of us. :c
I know how some of this feels too. You’re not alone.
A Toy That Teaches Empathy
I can’t even begin to describe how intelligent and useful this is. Imagine putting two strangers in a room with this toy. Brilliant. KickStarter is here.
This is a really cool idea. And it looks fun too! I would love to see more of these kind of toys be developed.
