THE FEELS - a comedy about the female orgasm
An improvised comedy about a lesbian bachelorette weekend that goes awry when one of the brides admits she's never had an orgasm.

What is The Feels?

The Feels is an improvised comedy about a group of girlfriends (and one dude) on a lesbian bachelorette weekend in wine country. Andi (Constance Wu) and Lu (Angela Trimbur) are excited to celebrate their upcoming wedding with their closest friends. On the first night, the brides and their friends get wasted, and Lu admits to everyone that she’s never had an orgasm. This admission comes as a complete surprise to Andi and derails the weekend in unexpected and poignant ways. It causes everyone to reflect on trust, love, and their journeys to experiencing their first orgasm.

Director’s Statement

Hello there,

Thank you so much for visiting our Kickstarter page!

So, The Feels is an improvised comedy about the female orgasm. I’m excited about this subject matter (LOL) because the female orgasm is something that is relatively taboo, and rarely discussed in our culture. And while the film’s concept could have been executed in a very broad, and predictable way, we’ve taken a grounded, improvised approach that explores the underlying dynamics that allowed this “orgasm deception” to take place.

I chose to make this an improvised film because I wanted to capture the funny, weird things that arise naturally among girlfriends. And I wanted to create a story where they talk about their sexuality in a way that feels real, and true, and particular. In order to achieve this, we cast a mixture of comedic actresses (Constance Wu and Angela Trimbur), stand up comedians (Ever Mainard and Josh Fadem) and my real life best friends (recording artist, KARYYN, and my co-writer, Lauren Parks).

I think that because of this approach, we’ve created a naturalistic comedic tone that is particular to The Feels, and I think that the amazing women in the film have something truly unique to say about female relationships and sexuality.  

Thank you again for your support, and we can’t wait to share this film with you!

xoxo

P.S. Looking at the statistics on representation of women in film and television can be really discouraging. But it is my intention in my career to “be the change” that I want to see in the world. And that is why our movie was purposefully engineered to create opportunities for women, POC and the LGBTQ community. We are proud to say that we have an 80% female cast and a 68% female crew.

Why do we need your help?

We are so close to finishing! And we really need your help! While we have an amazing edit of the movie, we need help to cover color correction, post production sound, festival costs, and other expenses to help bring this movie to the world. We have found incredible collaborators, but need to compensate them. Please help us in adding that final layer of polish!

okay so ive been seeing a lot recently about the hunters of artemis being lesbians and while i can understand wanting more girlxgirl representation in pop culture, it’s been pretty explicitly expressed that anyone who joins this society has to forswear ALL romantic love. it’s a group of girls who refuse to let society romanticize or sexualize them in any way, with men or women. this is a straightforward group of aroace girls who reject the idea that we need romantic love to be complete. again, i get that people want there to be more strong, gay, female characters, but we need more aroace representation in our world, and this is a really great way to show that.

THECLEXA FANFIC MASTER LIST

As you may (or may not) know, a few months ago I embarked on a journey to create a document for the Clexa fandom that would serve as a resource for those of you who enjoy reading fanfiction about our favorite lesbian warlord and bisexual space leader (and any AU personas they may take on…). Today, with much help along the way from the best co-captain and technology wizard ever  (@ayokidd), WE ARE EXCITED TO RELEASE THE FIRST DRAFT OF THIS DOCUMENT! (Containing over 600 completed fics!)

Please continue reading for the download link, as well as more information on how to use the document!

It’s a good thing you all love reading so much, because this post is quite long…but hopefully informative!.


Check out Clexarkives or keep reading to access The Clexa Fanfic Master List!!


What is the Clexa Fanfic Master List?

The Clexa Fanfic Master List is an on-going Microsoft Excel document that will eventually contain ALL completed Clexa and Lexark fanfiction - categorized, organized, hyperlinked, and listed all in one exportable document for your reading and fic-tracking pleasure! YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT…all 5,000+ fics (or whatever the final tally is!) will eventually be included! The document will be periodically updated and re-released as more fics are added to it over time. This will all be located on our blog @clexarkives, where you can find the frequently updated Master List and some other cool features.

How do I access the Clexa Fanfic Master List?

You need Microsoft Excel (or a program that opens Excel files) to access the document. You can download the document by clicking this link here. This link will take you to Google Drive where you can download the file and open it on your computer.

DO NOT view the document in Google Drive - the hyperlinks won’t work! YOU MUST DOWNLOAD AND OPEN THE DOCUMENT IN MICROSOFT EXCEL. We are also working on a Google Sheets version of the document for anyone unable to access the document through Excel or a similar program. Hang tight!

Once you download the document, save to your desktop and enjoy!

What fics are/will be included in the Clexa Fanfic Master List?

The Clexa Fanfic Master List will only include completed fics (it is simply impossible to keep updating such a large document with individual fic updates…we’ll leave that to the internet). We are, however, keeping track of current on-going fics and these will be added to the document as they are completed. Unfortunately, any fics that have been started but abandoned (author has no plans to finish or hasn’t updated for an extremely extended period of time) will not be included (unless they are one day completed) because I’m sorry but my heart can’t take that kind of investment and let down.

How is the Clexa Fanfic Master List organized?

The entire document functions as one large Excel workbook. There are four main sections, accessible from the Table of Contents:

1) Master List: contains a list of all the fics in the workbook, organized alphabetically by author
2) Canon: contains fics set in the canon universe, organized by ‘Season 2’, ‘Season 3’, and ‘Canon Divergent’
3) AU Categories: contains fics set in alternate universes, organized by specific categories (ie., ‘Enemies to Lovers’, ‘Teacher/student’, ‘Fake Dating’, etc.)
4) Smut: contains sexy time fics, organized by specific categories (ie., ‘Fluffy Smut’, “Strap On’, ‘3x07’, etc.)

How do I navigate the Clexa Fanfic Master List?

The entire document is hyperlinked to make navigation as easy as possible. You can click through individual tabs if you so desire, but we HIGHLY SUGGEST using the hyperlinks to navigate through the workbook.

Navigating within a main section:

The Table of Contents contains four main sections, or pages (as described above). Clicking on each of these sections will bring you to the page set up for that specific section.

Example 1: If you click the “Canon” section from the Table of Contents, you will be directed to the “Canon” page where the “Canon” categories ‘Season 2’, ‘Season 3’, and ‘Canon Divergent’ are hyperlinked.

If you click on one of these three categories, let’s say ‘Season 2’, you will find a list of Clexa fics that take place during Season 2 of the show organized by Author, Title, Chapters, Word Count, Summary, and a link to the fic on AO3 where it was originally posted and made available by the author.

Example 2: If you click the “AU Categories” section from the Table of Contents, you will be directed to the “AU Categories” page where you will find a list of AU categories.

Let’s say that from the “AU Categories” page you’re interested in the ‘Fake Dating’ category. You simply click the ‘Fake Dating’ category, and now you have a list of ‘Fake Dating’ AU fics organized by Author, Title, Chapters, Word Count. Summary, and a link to the fic on AO3 where it was originally posted and made available by the author.

Same goes for the “Master List” and “Smut” sections as well.

Navigating between the main sections and throughout the document:

Each of the four sections has a hyperlink that will take you back to the Table of Contents in the upper left hand corner of the page.

Each individual category has two hyperlinks, both in the upper left hand corner of the page.

1) The “Table of Contents” hyperlink will, you guessed it, take you back to the Table of Contents.
2) The specific category hyperlink will take you back to the main section of whatever category you’re currently in. (For example: If you’re in the ‘Season 2’ category, clicking the “Canon” hyperlink will take you back to the “Canon” page. If you’re in the ‘Fake Dating’ AU category, clicking the “AU Categories” hyperlink will take you back to the “AU Categories” page.)

How do I know I am looking at the most recent version of the Clexa Fanfic Master List?

The Master List will be updated periodically as we add more fics and as more fics are completed. You can find the most recent version of the document by checking our @clexarkives blog! We will also keep an updated link to the master list in our individual Tumblr bios (@ayokidd & @swan-heda).

Isn’t the Clexa Fanfic Master List basically like AO3 and FF? Why create a separate document?

Yes and no. We’re hopeful that the Clexa Fanfic Master List will give you more control over your fic reading than using AO3 or your web browser alone. If you’re like me (really neurotic and anal), you might also hate having 1,000 bookmarks saved on A03 and your computer browser that you have to search through every time you’re looking for a specific fic, and you might desire a higher level of organization and control. This document will help bring fics right to your desktop. We will update with fics we find and any fics you send us, which delivers a “master list” of not only your personal bookmarks, but everyone else’s as well!

This document is intended to make searching for new fics to read and keeping track of fics you’ve already read as easy as possible. Using Excel functions like “search” make it possible to find any specific fic you may be looking for anywhere in the document, on a specific page, or in a specific category.

Once you download the Excel file, you can edit, change, and personalize the document however you’d like! You can highlight fics you’ve read, sort by chapter or word count, or color code or rank fics based on whatever system you want to create. You can even delete fics or fic categories that aren’t for you if you know you’ll never read them. The world is your oyster! (…or more so this doc is your oyster?…)

Can I make suggestions for the Clexa Fanfic Master List ?

ABSOLUTELY!!! We both love fanfiction. We both read A LOT of fanfiction. However, we are only two people, and there are likely many fics we have yet to include (this IS a first draft after all), so:

READERS: If your favorite fics aren’t listed and you’d like them to be, tell us and we’ll add them! (Please also tell us if you’d like to see a specific category added - if there are fics written that fit it, we’ll add it!)

AUTHORS: If your fics aren’t listed and you’d like them to be (there are A LOT of fics and chances are if it’s not included, we just didn’t get to yours yet!), please tell us and we’ll add them! If your fics ARE listed, but you don’t want them to be, please tell us and we’ll remove them! Also, let us know if you disagree with the category we placed your fic into and suggest a new one, and we’ll move it!

EVERYONE: PLEASE reach out to us with any questions, comments, concerns, suggestions, advice, love, dislike (polite, respectful dislike) etc. you have to offer! Please feel free to contact us in any way you feel comfortable, anonymously or not (reply to this post, message us, flood our ask boxes, send us submissions, etc.) We are both super friendly and would love some feedback! Tell us what you like, what you don’t like, what you’d like to see in future versions, etc. Any feedback you provide us with will only make the subsequent updated editions of the document even better. This is, after all, for each and every one of you.

Enjoy!

May We Meet Again,

REPRESENTATION MATTERS
  • Queer Sirius Black, worshiped by girls, but who came out to his friends after noticing how beautiful Remus Lupin was in all his aspects;

  • Bisexual Remus Lupin, who corresponded to Sirius’s feelings with all his soul, but who couldn’t resist to a beautiful, smooth bubblegum colored hair;

  • Lesbian Pansy Parkinson, who could literally have any girl she wanted and whose friends couldn’t be more supportive;

  • Straight Ron Weasley, who supported his friends, overcome prejudice and proved himself the most loyal person in the world;

  • Demisexual Neville Longbottom, for whom school period was full of good friends and loyalty and waiting was never, never a struggle;

  • Genderfluid Teddy Lupin, who some days feels so magnificent with girly features, but other days couldn’t resist to the temptations of be a full boy (and neither of them some days);

  • Pansexual Victoire Weasley, who loves Teddy no matter his appearance or his gender - who was fascinated by his ability to literally becomes who he wants to be;

  • Bisexual Draco Malfoy, who, let’s be honest here, couldn’t resist to a certain pair of green eyes;

  • Aro/Ace Peter Pettigrew, who couldn’t be more comfortable with his friends and it was just enough for him.

    Representation matters, the world is not split between straight and queer and you would be surprised if you just opened your mind for the amazing, infinite and beautiful puzzle we are - and how we could complete one another in every way possible. We just have to want - to love. Your sexuality and gender identity matters, you’re loved and you’re not alone.

  • Queer Albus Dumbledore, the most fab and powerful queer ever.

    Go for it.


No, I’m not forcing sexualities into the characters, stop your heteronormativity, stop judging yourself always right, agree or disagree if you want - just respect our diversity, because they fucking exist.

‘What if you get bored of me?’ she asked and I smiled. 'Not possible’ I said. Then tears filled her eyes, 'What if you hurt me? Or I hurt you? Again? You deserve better’ I took her hand then wiped away her tears. 'I love you’ And she turned away from me and it broke my heart as she said, 'But maybe you shouldn’t. You deserve someone better’ I turned her back to me and we faced each other again. 'Do you think I deserve to get what I want?’ Her eyes met with mine. 'Yes. Of course’ then she looked away again. 'Listen to me, okay?’ I turned her chin back to me and our eyes locked. 'I will always want you. Over anyone else - everyone else. I will always want you’ Then she asked, 'But why?’ I smiled at her and tears filled my eyes, 'Because I’m completely fucking lost without you, babe’

Open letter to bi women, from one bi brown woman: 

I know that we’re all tired of being rejected and being erased. Of feeling like we don’t fit in anywhere and that we can’t find each other. I understand that this causes an immeasurable amount of hurt. 

This causes some of us to espouse frameworks that are really harmful, or, worse, turn to cishet women to accept us. 

I am saying right now that this isn’t the proper path to take at all. 

Before anything else, cishet women are not our friends. They will always enact homophobia against us. They will call us slurs. They will bully us. They will fetishize our bisexuality and use it for their own purposes. They will demean and mock us. This has happened to me and to all my bi friends and acquaintances and to most bi people, actually. Cishet women trying to drive a wedge between bi women and lesbians do so for their own selfish purposes, not because they ~care~ about bi women. They only pretend to care about us when it suits them, because straight women are selfish and homophobic. As I state a little bit later, bi women have far more in common with lesbians than they do with straight women. Lesbians are our fellow nonstraight women - it is ludicrous to posit that we’re farther removed from them than from straight women when historically, bi women have marched and fought alongside lesbians. 

Intracommunity biphobia hurts. It hurts, and it’s worse when those who perpetrate it blatantly laugh it off or deny its existence. 

It is not an excuse for you to say that “monosexual privilege” exists, or that lesbians have privilege for being hypervisible, or that lesbians are responsible for the oppression bi women face, just like intracommunity lesbophobia doesn’t justify biphobia. 

You cannot ask others to stop lumping us in with our oppressors if you do the same to them. We are not “straight-passing” or “bihets”, just like lesbians are not “monosexuals with monosexual privilege”. Both concepts are really harmful and push both bi women and lesbians back into regressive mindsets. 

You cannot ask others to stop erasing our identities if you erase lesbians’ identities. 

Taking on the “monosexual privilege” framework is a separatism of its own. You cannot criticize lesbian separatism if you desire to separate yourselves from the LGBT/wlw communities as well. 

Getting hurt is not a good reason to enact hurt or project it onto others and it never will be. 

There are ways to articulate our issues and our feelings without contributing to lesbophobia. 

We ask for respect and understanding - we must provide it in return. 

Solidarity is difficult to achieve. Centering not just yourselves but others is hard to do. And no one is saying that you have to stop prioritizing bi women. I will never stop prioritizing them. But making room for other wlw (lesbians, more specifically) will not hurt you - it will make all of our lives better and it will enhance our politics. 

Especially considering that lesbians and bi women are not two separate entities with nothing in common. Our histories have always been intertwined. We have been lovers, partners, friends, and comrades to each other for far longer than you know. You do a great disservice to bi women and lesbians who are in love/dating/are married to each other by pretending that we can’t care for each other or that we’re completely different. 

It’s good to recognize that we have unique experiences and different identities. In fact, it’s imperative to acknowledge that we don’t go through precisely the same things. But it’s also good to remember that we have common experiences and thoughts.

We do have to call out intracommunity biphobia and lesbophobia whenever possible. It’s harmful to let them fester in our spaces. What’s worse, though, is if we don’t undertake to understand the sources of hurt. If we don’t eliminate the root of the problem, we will get no where. 

For bi women, this means understanding where lesbians are coming from. Do not take the selfish route - that is, don’t reject solidarity simply because separatists reject it. I know it’s hard, and even I want to give up sometimes when I see things utterly detached from my reality as a bi woman, but we will get nowhere if we don’t extend the hand of empathy and compassion. And I cannot speak for anyone else - nor will I do so. I will rally bi women because I am own, because I understand bi women the most, and because I am responsible for how my own navigate the world. 

As an addendum, I’d really like white bi women to consider how harmful their overtures at rejecting community with lesbians are for bi women of color. I, as a bi brown woman, have always had far more in common with brown lesbians than with white bi women. I have never had the luxury of picking and choosing which LGBT person I spend time with because it’s so difficult to come across wlwoc, much less wlwoc who share my specific race and sexuality. How wlwoc conceptualize their identities, and how they relate to concepts like “community” and “solidarity”, will never be the same as how white wlw do. To impose your own philosophies and frameworks onto us like that is just a watered down form of western exceptionalism/ethnocentrism. Which is humorous, given that it was LGBT people of color who sacrificed so much to get the momentum behind the movement off the ground. 

I have seen what actual solidarity between bi women and lesbians, and between wlw and trans women, looks like. It is beautiful, harmonious, and healing. It is not, however, easy, or a walk in the park, or a bed of roses, or any other cheesy adage. It does involve difficult conversations, and anger, and frustration, and tears, and raw emotions. But it is real, it is achievable, it is long-lasting, it is powerful, and it has existed for centuries. 

It does not come out of thin air. It is up to us to create and maintain it, and it’s up to you to choose a path of bitterness and selfishness or a path of hard-won but well-earned compassion, community, and empathy.

I identify as bi but I know I have a preference for girls. Lately I've started to develop some doubts, also after reading some "thought I was bi" posts on this blog (which I love btw), and I think I might be a lesbian. I mean...I don't really know. I've had crushes on boys before but thinking about having sex with a guy just makes me so...Uncomfortable. I know I am attracted to men too, though. But I like girls better. So I don't really know if I'm bi or lesbian and it's all just so confusing.

Hey sweetheart! I’m not 100% sure if you just needed to vent (which is fine!) or if you were looking for advice (which is also fine!) 

We’ve given advice in a similar situation here, if that helps some! LINK 

Either way, the way you feel is definitely understandable, and it’s completely okay to be struggling with this. It doesn’t make the way you feel about girls any less real. I can’t tell you 100% ‘yeah you’re definitely (this identity)’, but I can tell you that this is a SUPER common way for lesbians to feel before they realize that their attraction to men isn’t genuine. 

We’re sending you all our love while you figure this out, it’s really tough! Just know that there’s no rush at all, you’ve got nothing but time. :)

Mary, I ask that you be aware of how this serves the destructive forces of racism and separation between women - the assumption that the herstory and myth of white women is the legitimate and sole herstory and myth of all women to call upon for power and background, and that nonwhite women and our herstories are noteworthy only as decorations, or examples of female victimization. I ask that you be aware of the effect that this dismissal has upon the community of Black women and other women of Color, and how it devalues your own words. This dismissal does not essentially differ from the specialized devaluations that make Black women prey, for instance, to the murders even now happening in your own city. When patriarchy dismisses us, it encourages our murders. When radical lesbian feminist theory dismisses us, it encourages its own demise. This dismissal stands as a real block to communication between us. This block makes it far easier to turn away from you completely than to attempt to understand the thinking behind your choices. Should the next step be war between us, or separation? Assimilation within a solely western european herstory is not acceptable.

anonymous asked:

I'm so sorry if this doesn't apply to the blog, but I wanted to say this, being a trans lesbian in the closet is so hard because I rarely date straight girls because they can probably tell I'm a girl on some level and don't date me, and I'm completely off the radar of lesbians, so I am afraid I will die alone with nobody to love me as a woman ever (except for the one girlfriend I've had who knew I was a girl but that was after knowing each other for years before dating)

That’s such a difficult position to be in and I’m so sorry, we’re sending you all our love.

& Other Stories Shares A London Love Story

In honor of Valentine’s Day, Swedish retailer & Other Stories has presented a same-sex love story editorial with real-life couple Eden Clark and Lizzie Tovell. To add a level of intimacy, the campaign was shot by the model duo themselves, creating a lovely portrait-style campaign.

Surrounded by a crisp, minimalistic interior, the girls captured the spirit of their relationship while being completely decked out in the brand’s new seasonal merchandise. The offerings consist of a classic black-and-white colorway with romantic hints of blush.

Creative Director, Sara Hildén Bengtsson, explained the charming collaboration:

It’s starting to become a cherished & Other Stories tradition to tell a love story for Valentine’s Day. This is the second year running we’ve created a story together with a couple, and it’s a process that’s very close to our hearts and really reflects our diversity.

anonymous asked:

telling lesbians that our sexuality is fluid can be really harmful, that's the exact same line of reasoning used by homophobes to invalidate lesbianism. it seems like you have a lot of young followers, so please think twice before spreading that message to lesbians in the future.

Well. Not quite. I’m not telling lesbians that they have to be attracted to men?? I am a lesbian?? Who is generally male repulsed?? I’m just saying if you love someone you should let yourself love them. It’s not even a compulsory heterosexuality thing (which is a completely different story) that anon was in love with someone who identified as a woman, and then later realized they were a man. Why is that so wrong to let people love people? Maybe you should stop trying to police people’s sexualities

Where's My Girlfriend To

Watch nightly movies and eat midnight snacks With?

To go on adventures with at any
random time?

To build forts with and hide away in our perfect bubble with?

Who i can sit in complete silent with and still be comfortable With?

Who i can talk for hours on end and never get bored With?

Who i could have fun with no matter the season or time?

Who i can watch a hundred sunsets and a million stars with?

Who i could hug, hold and kiss at anytime with?

Who i can intertwine mind, body and
heart with?

Who would know the realist me and still love me equally?

The interesting thing about this discourse is that it started over a discussion about language and cissexism in society. The belief that lesbian means “anti penis” or gay means “anti vaginas” and language that supports that is inherently cissexist. It upholds the belief that women = vaginas and men = penises which is simply not true. 

Here on tumblr, we have a pretty good understanding of the ways in which society has programmed us to think and feel things a certain way. We talk, at length about internalized misogyny, internalized homophobia, institutionalized racism. As a community, we should be making sure that we’re also addressing the cissexist way our society perceives just about everything, from baby clothes to sexuality. 

I know that no matter how “woke” I get and how much I grow things like racism and sexism still have an affect on society, on language I use, on the world I live in. I know that I may have beliefs or preferences or opinions that are rooted in systems of oppression. That’s okay. Not okay in that it is good but okay in that we are of the understanding that as a society and as individuals we are works in progress, shaped by what is around us and the pillars that our world is build on. We are slowly beginning to deconstruct those things and in order to do that, we must accept our own faults, our own biases. We must get uncomfortable sometimes and we must face changes and questions that confuse our accepted norm in order to make room for the safety of people who experience the world in a different way than us, who may not experience the same privilege.

The post that started all of this discourse has these lines in it:

  • “Stop reducing human beings and their sexualities to genital preference.”
  • “the idea that lesbians love vagina and hate penis and, by the same token, that gays love penis and hate vagina, is completely and one hundred percent transphobic.”
  • “if you’re a gay man who only dates people with penises or a lesbian who only dates people with vaginas then you are cissexist. Sort of like if a white dude won’t date black women because he just “isn’t attracted to women with skin that color” he’s still racist.”

All you are being asked to do is look at the language we use and the beliefs we uphold, as a society regarding sexual preference and understand in which ways they perpetuate transphobia and are rooted in cissexism. You are not being asked to sleep with someone you don’t want to. You are not being asked to think about what is in the pants of everyone you come into contact with, in fact if one more person starts analyzing genitals in my ask box I’m going to lose my shit. You are being asked to look at the way we talk about sexuality and understand that in some ways it can be harmful to our trans siblings.

It isn’t about you. It isn’t about what genitals you are and aren’t “repulsed” by or “turned off” by. Stop making it about you. Listen to the information you are being presented with, think about it, acknowledge that no matter how you feel about gender/sexuality/genitals, this kind of language and behavior is rooted in cissexism. It is OKAY and in fact HELPFUL to look at yourself and say “wow you’re right, I do uphold this transphobic belief system” or “yes this preference that I have is rooted in cissexism.” It’s okay to realize that. It’s okay to learn new things and understand you maybe weren’t entirely educated on an issue. Stop detracting from it. Stop making it about whether you want to sleep with trans people (who probably don’t want to sleep with you at this point). Just listen to them, accept and understand the nature of their oppression, understand that a lot of what we uphold and believe to be true is rooted in sexism/racism/homophobia/cissexism and continue forward with that in mind. 

Wayhaught - both Waverly and Nicole get shot at - enter cute scene where Wynonna finds out about them and they’re still alive and in love.

Sanvers - Maggie gets shot - gives her the motivation to begin a relationship with Alex.

Tara Chambler - gets shot at 71638 times - every bullet misses her completely.

The end of 2016 is being very kind to TV lesbians. I’m kinda scared that it’s going too well for us, but I’m not complaining. Let’s enjoy our alive lesbians.

anonymous asked:

ty for clarifying ❤❤❤ idk, i just get kind of alienated feeling sometimes about all of this...



I’m sorry <33 Any way a lesbian has developed or discovered her identity is completely valid and there’s as many experiences of discovery as there are individual lesbians. We’re all worthy of respect and love and celebration of our identities no matter how we found our way to it. You’ll always find acceptance and support here, I promise. 

This girl. This special girl I can’t get enough of. She has the weirdest habits and the cutest little quirks. She has these secret sides to her that you’ll miss if you even so much as blink. I can’t explain much because if I do I’m afraid you’ll fall in love with her as I did. As I fell deeper and deeper in love with her, I noticed how she actually was. She was not this all around sadistic girl that she came out to be. Maybe to others, but for me she was this girl who was a little too obsessed with caramel filled drinks, who was more than passionate about what she does. She loved tea simply for the taste, she covered her mouth when she smiled or laughed to cover her “flaw” as she thinks it is. It’s beautiful honestly, it’s eye catching. I didn’t fall for the girl who was always strong, I fell for the girl who laughed whenever she was about to show her emotions. I fell for all the things she was rather than dwell on the things she’s not. The thing was, there wasn’t anything I could dwell on. She was perfect; she’s still perfect. In my eyes, the only thing I would ever change is changing her from being my girlfriend to my wife. Even then, I wouldn’t feel the need to. The love I feel for her doesn’t need a ring or a piece of paper to be proven. She’s just the type of girl you fall in love with and never let go of. She knows all the right things to say and she cares. Even when she claims she doesn’t, you know she does. She doesn’t leave, she stays. She sticks with you no matter what it is. Maybe that’s why I fell so hard for her, I saw my future in her. I saw a home, I saw comfort, I saw love. When you see those things in a person you can’t help but fall in love with them and give them your all. You know it’ll be worth it and you know they will be completely unforgettable. Some people feel as if home was a place, some feel like it’s a person. For me, it’s her. It’s always been her. One day I’ll look at our grandchildren and then her admiringly and be able to say “We made it darling, we made it through the distance and the time. We always said always and forever right? Well this is it. From this life to the next. I’ll always find my way back to you. My heart is yours.” Instead of seeing you on a screen or messaging it to you, I’ll be able to look you in the eyes and tell you that I’m completely and utterly in love with your entire being.

Incredible. I awoke to laying on the couch, parallel to her body, my arms wrapped around her, and her face pressed into my neck. But what was amazing to me was her BREATHING. Completely opposite to my own. Each breath I took in, she exhaled her own life into me, and then I to her. Keeping one another alive. Filling each others lungs with our own air. A complete balance of giving. Perfect.

I’m heartbroken that our country has elected a president and vp that will be completely willing and able to fund conversion therapy at a federal level.

I’ve been through a mild version of conversion therapy and I would never wish it on my worst enemy. It was a horrible experience that causes emotional issues still to this day. I hate to think that there will be youth going through that type of therapy on a broader scale. I’m so sorry, LGBTQ+ family, that our country has let us down. Stay safe. Stay alive. I love you all. We can get through this 💞

it’s natural, it has been from the beginning. nothing ever forced and i love that. i love the little things, how she calls me every morning to talk. how we can spend hours on the phone talking about nonsense. how we pretty much twin over a lot of things, especially clothes…as if she doesn’t live inside my mind already. i love how our bodies fit perfectly together and i love how the sound of her voice is so comforting to hear. i love the way she attempts to speak french even though it’s completely wrong. i love how hard it is to say goodbye and how it never gets easier to leave her because it means that this is something real. i love her. i love us.
