Ok, I’m awake-ish now.
My favourite tragic love story is that of an artist and their art
to be reblogged by every artist on tumblr eventually, for sure
So true it huuurrts
Just got back from a marina and the diamonds concert. It was great she sang all my faves going to sleep now.
I THOUGHT THIS WAS KIDDING SOGMLASG

How glorious is this?! Upcycling at its finest…
I have a couple bracelets made from the same stuff! yay
I used to think this scar marked me. But lately, I’ve realized I’m free to determine my own destiny, even if I’ll never be free of my mark.
Some resources for those writing medieval-type stories:
A teenager in Florida has been expelled from school and charged with two felonies simply because her girlfriend’s parents disapprove of their relationship. She now faces two years of house arrest and a year of probation.
Kaitlyn Hunt was a popular student at Sebastian River High School, participating in everything from cheerleading to basketball. Hunt began dating another female student and the latter girl’s parents became enraged, according to Hunt’s parents. Kaitlyn was 17 at the time the relationship began, while her girlfriend was 15. Upon Kaitlyn’s 18th birthday, her girlfriend’s parents sent the police to the Hunt home and the teenager was arrested.
Hunt was charged with two felony counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a child. Then, weeks before her graduation, Hunt was expelled from school.
“[The girlfriend’s parents] are out to destroy my daughter,” Hunt’s mother told the Examiner, “because they feel like she ‘made’ their daughter gay. They see being gay as wrong and they blame my daughter. Of course, I see it 100% differently. I don’t see or label these girls as gay. They are teenagers in high school experimenting with their sexuality — with mutual consent. And even if their daughter is gay, who cares? She is still their daughter.”
Infuriating. So many things wrong with this.
First, this is a case of homophobic parents blackmailing a girl they don’t like in a slimy, roundabout way that serves to mask their bigotry. I can’t believe what a cheap shot they took. Absolutely disgusting.
Second, “I don’t see these girls as gay”? Cool, thanks, Mom. Thank goodness she’s not disowning her daughter, but I don’t totally see this as being supportive either.
Third, there’s a petition circulating to drop or lessen the charges against Kaitlyn. Go sign it. And try not to lose faith in humanity, even though people like this exist.
ppl get so offended when so much as imply that u read a female character as gay
then again people can’t even deal with explicitly canon lesbians, god forbid you suggest a woman with no stated sexuality at all not care about men
see also: every conversation about merida possibly being a lesbian after brave came out
“BUT I’M LIKE MERIDA AND I’M NOT A LESBIAN HOW DARE YOU SUGGEST I’M A LESBIAN LOLOL BETTER GO TELL MY HUSBAND I’M GAY!!! WON’T HE BE SURPRISED!”
I love how the options are
- character read as stereotypically “feminine”: OMG NO SHE’S NOT A DYKE SHE WEARS SKIRTS AND HAS LONG HAIR LOL SILLY LESBIANS GAY IS FOR TOMBOYS
- character read as more “butch”: OMG STOP STRAIGHT TOMBOYS NEED ROLEMODELS TOO THIS ONE TIME SOMEONE THOUGHT I WAS GAY AND IT WAS AWFUL BECAUSE I LIKE MEN :(
and of course bisexual women don’t exist, and no female character who’s ever so much as breathed the same air as a dude might fall for a woman, or have dated women in the past. because straight is the default
