Thinking youre attractive but having a lot of insecurities is like having a crush on yourself but not knowing if you like yourself back.

This is exactly how I’ve been feeling the last few weeks. 

If any of yall live in NYC…

Im gonna be there all day tomorrow on my day off.

Hit me up. Especially all you well-dressed vers boys. Ive got plans for you.

The phrase “Being politically correct” is always, in any context, a condescending way to equate the act of treating oppressed groups as actual people to jumping through hoops and pandering to a bunch of oversensitive whiners, which, when you think about it, is awfully ironic.

What it should be called is “Doing whats fair even if it means some people have to stop being comfortably ignorant,” because thats really the truth of what political correctness is.

So many people will not be able to see your potential … (x)

Alison Bechdel wins a MacArthur Genius Grant →

gaywrites:

Lesbian graphic artist Alison Bechdel is officially a winner of a MacArthur Genius Grant this year. The $625,000 grant is given to creative visionaries, scientists, scholars and others to support the amazing work they’re already doing.

Bechdel is well-known for the simple test she derived to judge the representation of women in film, as well as the iconic 1985 comic Dykes To Watch Out For and plenty of other amazing work:

The rule, now known as the Bechdel Test, calls for basic inclusion of women in film. The concept shouldn’t be so revolutionary, but when women had only 30 percent of speaking roles and 15 percent of leads in last year’s top films it is clear we have a lot of work left to do. It’s great to see the MacArthur Foundation honoring someone doing that work.

Bechdel has also earned well-deserved praise for graphic novels including 2006′s Fun Home and and 2012′s Are You My Mother. In August, it was announced that the stage production of Fun Home is officially headed to Broadway after years as a beloved Off-Broadway experience.

HELL. YES. She deserves this a million times over. For info on other LGBT grant winners, click here

an amazing thought

butchimightbe:

all trans women look like women. it’s impossible for a trans woman not to look like a woman.

Within the lesbian community I am Black, and within the Black community I am a lesbian. Any attack against Black people is a lesbian and gay issue, because I and thousands of other Black women are part of the lesbian community. Any attack against lesbians and gays is a Black issue, because thousands of lesbians and gay men are Black. There is no hierarchy of oppression.

It is not accidental that the Family Protection Act, which is virulently anti-woman and anti-Black, is also anti-gay. As a Black person, I know who my enemies are, and when the Ku Klux Klan goes to court in Detroit to try and force the Board of Education to remove books the Klan believes “hint at homosexuality,” then I know I cannot afford the luxury of fighting one form of oppression only. I cannot afford to believe that freedom from intolerance is the right of only one particular group. And I cannot afford to choose between the fronts upon which I must battle these forces of discrimination, wherever they appear to destroy me. And when they appear to destroy me, it will not be long before they appear to destroy you.
