Can you imagine Brian fucking Kinney doing that ice cream kiss with any other trick? Just goes to show how different Justin was from the beginning.

Okay, I have a LOT of feelings about the ice cream kiss and I NEED TO SCREAM ABOUT THEM FOR A HOT MINUTE.

Because we’ve already seen time and time again that Brian uses sex as a coping mechanism. Hot, anonymous sex to allow him to forget about his troubles for a while and feel like the immortal, untouchable god he yearns to be.

But now he’s lost Michael, his best friend, one of the few people in the world who really understands him. That’s deeply traumatizing, and Brian feels well and truly alone.

And yet…this time he actively rejects that anonymous sex he usually seeks out! Multiple guys propositioned him and he turned them down flat. And instead…he goes to Justin!

They have sex, of course. Sex will always make Brian feel better. But tonight, he’s looking for more than that. He’s looking for companionship. (Stop rolling your eyes at me, Brian, we all saw you.) He’s looking for someone who’ll make him laugh, who makes him feel good about himself, who knows him and loves him anyway, who’ll goad him into eating that last spoonful of ice cream. He’s looking for a friend.

And Brian’s never been friends with any of his tricks.

Justin is a unique blend. He’s someone Brian has fantastic sexual chemistry with, but who he also just enjoys spending time with. They can fuck and they can laugh together. He’s something Brian has never experienced before. He’s special.

Even all the way back in the beginning.

What is omgcp I want to know who these gay boys are please I need this

MY FRIEND, I AM SO GLAD YOU ASKED!!!

Check Please! (usually tagged as #omgcp or #omgcheckplease) is a webcomic by Ngozi Ukazu that depicts the exciting college journey of one (1) southern vlogger/baker/figure skater/hockey player/cutie Eric Richard “Bitty” Bittle. To quote Ngozi herself, Check Please is essentially “a story about hockey and friendship and bros and trying to find yourself during the best 4 years of your life.”

And oh yes, it’s also a story about love. And the frequent baking of pies.

If you’re interested, here’s a primer that gives a nice overview of what the comic is all about, and if you want to read it, all you gotta do is go to the tumblr page to get started!

READ IT. LOVE IT. CRY ABOUT IT.

         okay, but do you even hear the way he
            talks to you? how can you say with any
            certainty that he doesn’t care? 

   fiddling with something in his hands ( a stray new object prompto had left around
for him to check out ) he can’t help but grin. how come it was the blind guy who
saw everything

          “ can’t hurt to leave your number on a

Mom Slams Magazine For Failing Our Girls In Epic Open Letter

“We’ve got a very serious problem here. Hell, we’ve had a serious problem here for a long time. And it’s what we’re telling our girls. Girls only care about fashion and getting boys to like them. Or some version of that. Nothing shows that problem more obviously than comparing the cover of a magazine targeted to girls to the cover of a magazine targeted to boys, side by side.

Mom of five, Shoshanna Keats-Jaskoll, mother to two girls and three boys posted this genius picture on Facebook this week.

It’s the covers of Girls’ Life and Boys’s Life right next to each other. Although the two magazines have similar names they are not owned or operated by the same company. Along with the picture, Keats-Jaskoll wrote an epic open letter to the editors of Girls’ Life magazine slamming them for reducing our girls to fashion tips, kiss-and-tell bullshit and other superficial nonsense.

Keats-Jaskoll writes,” Your cover has a lovely young lady with a full face of makeup and you invite your readers to ‘steal her secrets’. The Boys’ Life cover has in bold letters: EXPLORE YOUR FUTURE surrounded by all kinds of awesome gear for different professions- doctor, explorer, pilot, chemist, engineer, etc. subheading — HERE’S HOW TO BE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE.”

Keats-Jaskoll then compares the content inside the magazines, “Your true stories are: ‘real girls smooch and spill.’ Boys’ Life true stories are: ‘True stories of firefighters in action.’ ” Damn.

“You CAN fight the tide of objectification of girls. You CAN create covers and stories that treat girls as more than hair, lips and kisses,” writes Keats-Jaskoll. “Until you do, I guess I’ll sign us up to Boys’ Life because the quiz I want for my girls isn’t ‘Am I ready for a BF’ its ‘What Do I Want To Be.‘”
