Everything about Amy Poehler is impishly angelic. This delightful juxtaposition runs deeply through her comedy, as well, starting with the stark contrast between her appearance and love of raunchy humor. A Massachusetts native, expletives come naturally to her. She follows each shocking and Boston-accented “f*ckin’ asshole” (words she has uttered on many talk shows, to the audience’s delight) with a full-bodied and gleeful laugh. “Poehler’s laugh begins as a chuckle and crescendos to a side-splitting guffaw,” describes Sean Evans of the Daily News. However, her adorableness is not cloyingly sweet nor that of a girlish people-pleaser, but rather a misleading outer appearance that makes her raunchiness and ridiculousness all the more comedic. x

happy birthday, amy! (16.09.1971)


Happy 43rd Birthday, Amy Pueblo Poehler!

“Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do it… Doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that – that is what life is. You might be really good. You might find out something about yourself that’s really special and if you’re not good, who cares? You tried something. Now you know something about yourself.”


Today we got a message saying that by reblogging a long post of criticisms of the porn industry, we’re being SWERFs or some BS.
I’m basically in negative emotional spoons for the day, so I’m just gonna say a few things.

-Criticising the porn industry and exposing its damaging effects is not the same as shaming sex work/-ers
-Especially when that criticism contains actual quotes from actual sex workers about the abuse they actually faced while in the industry.
-I don’t see how this is any different than criticising the abusive, blatantly misogynistic, and inhumane parts of the industries of prostitution (eg all sex trafficking and most street pimping).

I’m basically done with this argument that you can’t be pro-sex work while also acknowledging the problems with the actual industries and the damage that it can do.
