A 20- something femme studying at a liberal arts college and navigating friendships, relationships, allyship, feminism, queerness, anxiety and survival. I like flowers and cute animals, especially pigs. White/ cis/ able-bodied. She, her.

If you need anything specific tagged, I will do it no questions asked. Just PM me.

 

trigger/content warning for abuser sympathizer, mention of incest and sexual abuse

Still upset that my dad spent a good few minutes of the car ride talking about how things are going in the life of my cousin who he knows sexually abused me multiple times. His college transfer and how he felt it was a good decision, how he feels bad for him because he, a fully grown adult, has to take care of his grandmother for two freakin’ days out of the year.

*sigh* I was finally getting back on a good sleep schedule. Why am I up worrying about this?

Biscuits & Gravy Zine
Volume 1: Love, Resilience, Possibilities
Biscuits & Gravy is a zine seeking to uplift and centralize the unique experiences of Southern Black and Brown Femmes in Queer culture. This zine aims to envision what community can look like when Black and Brown Femmes have the space to share our stories, lives, pain, love, and bodies on our own terms.
Biscuits & Gravy is a project grounded in anti-oppression, intentional solidarity, and authentic accountability in recognition of the institutional systems of power and global dominance that furthers white supremacy, colonialism, patriarchy, classism, ableism, anti-blackness, transmisogyny, cultural genocide, and various other forms of marginalization and violence.
The theme of our first issue will be “Love, Resilience, and Possibilities.” In a November 2012 interview, poet, writer, editor and educator Warsan Shire stated, “At the end of the day, it isn’t where I came from. Maybe home is somewhere I’m going and never have been before.”
Let’s envision what home can be. How will we love? How will we persevere? How do we reach a place, a love, a world, for which we have no blueprint. Biscuits & Gravy seeks submissions from Black and Brown Queer Femmes grappling with these questions, desiring transformation. Please submit works up to 1000 words. Submissions can be, but are not limited to:
poetry, fiction, personal stories
photos/selfies
artwork
collages
quotes
music
Please send your submissions for consideration or any questions to biscuitsandgravyzine@gmail.com. Deadline for submissions is August 29th, 2014. Mailed submissions can also be considered.
Edit: Deadline extended!

6 selfies (with two bonus selfies cuz it was hard to decide on just 6)!

I was tagged by beyondthemyopicmirror. :) Thank you for tagging me. 

I’m tagging horrible-princess seafemme philosophicalfemme beatingthebinary shitmypartnerssay roseofchaos flintandpyrite and scientificinqueery. Y’all don’t need to feel obligated to do it or anything. I know at least some of you don’t post selfies regularly and that may be for privacy reasons, which I totally respect.

iceland is scary

are those giant marshmallows

we icelandic people harvest marshmallows, its the only thing that keeps us alive and healthy, every full moon the icelandic marshmallow god demands tons of giant marshmallows to be made in his honor, later these marshmallows gained its own consciousness and has been roaming around icelandic farms since then, so whenever you drive around iceland you will see these mysterious giant marshmallows in their natural habitat

Seriously though what the fuck are those

I’m tagging puta-bacan, aceadventurer, thewonderofliving, leagueofunicorns, kathedraloflove, creoclay and snotpunx, but feel free to ignore this. I had  a lot of trouble thinking of people who I haven’t seen tagged in this before.
