Homes

Marilyn spent her first seven years living in one home with a foster family, and the last six months in the only home she ever owned. In the intervening three decades, Marilyn called a selection of fifty different places “home,” many of them hotels. 

Biographers do not always concur about when and where Marilyn lived in the first half of her life, particularly in the period before and after her spell at the Los Angeles Orphanage. During the period from 1946 to 1952 Marilyn was almost constantly on the move, living just a few weeks or months in one place before moving on to a favorite hotel, hence the multiple entries for each year in the list below.

6707) I hate hate HATE when people ask me and my girlfriend who the man in a relationship is. Even if it's asked to a cis gay/lesbian couple (which I'm pretty sure is what we're read as now) it's just a shitty question, but it triggers the fuck out of my dysphoria, but my girlfriend always says "I am, asshole", with her beautiful laugh, and while part of me doesn't support feeding into that whole dynamic, it makes me feel a LOT better. I love her.
