and then looked up at me

May I take a moment to post some conceited selfies because I am living for these lip colors. Especially the darker near black purples.

I’ve never worn lippies of any kind b/c I chew my lips when anxious (and I thought I’d look weird). But that was exactly what I wanted to wean off of. previously i chewed off my nails but I managed to cut that habit by painting my nails pretty. So I figured I’d try wearing lipstick and I now I think I have a new obsession!

Also I need a haircut. I will never go back to long hair. Lol.

(Sorry for looking tired. I’ve been going to bed late and waking up early for the past week. No reason except that I don’t want to sleep >.>;)

She danced, whirled, turned round, on an old Purrsian carpet, carelessly spread on the pavement; and every time her radiant face passed before you as she turned, her large cat eyes flashed lightning.

Classicat #27: La Esmewralda, from the Hunchcat of Notre Dame by Victor Mewgo

Who is Esmewralda, the compassionate and independent Romeowni dancer? That depends on who you ask.

Pawsimodo worships her as angel; Clawed Frollo condems her as a demon or a witch; Furbus uses her like a thing (he was a decent dude in the Disney movie tho.) Pawsimodo sees her as superhuman; Clawed Frollo sees her as subhuman; Furbus hardly considers her human. She is seen as an object of worship, an object of lust and scorn, and just an object– but rarely as a human being.

And well, she is a cat. But that’s beside the point.

After a sleeping on it for a few hours I think I sorted out my thoughts on Kadena in the latest episode of The Bold Type.

1. As far as the audience knows, Adena has a girlfriend. What exactly is the nature of their relationship is not revealed but I’m assuming most people aren’t going to be cool with their significant other locking lips with another person. I don’t know if this will be addressed in upcoming episodes but it was something that bothered me.

2. The writers really did drop the ball with Kat being arrested. It was used as a catalyst for Kat and Adena to have an arguement about being from different worlds (which they are but they are also similar in ways when it comes to stereotypes and prejudice applied the them). Maybe the writers didn’t want to talk about race relations and police brutality, which I thought was a missed opportunity.

3. I identify as a Queer Muslim woman and I look nothing like Adena. I choose to not wear the hijab and I am not Middle-Eastern. There are other Muslimah’s out in the world who might also identify as LGBTQIA and also not look like Adena. She is a single protrayal of a queer Muslim woman who is unapologetically out and proud and who also happens to look pretty on trendy. We don’t all fall under that same banner. I’m not knocking on her as a character and how she is protrayed, I’m simply providing another viewpoint. She is representation, but she isn’t the standard and I really do hope people understand that.
