i would totally go lesbian for her

Reasons you should be watching The Bold Type

The Bold Type is a new show on Freeform about three girls working at a feminist fashion magazine, just trying to live their lives. On first glance, it looks like the epitome of white feminism, but I think it will prove to be much more than that. Here’s some reasons too tune in:

1. Aisha Dee is in it. She’s amazeballs and if you haven’t seen her in Chasing Life or Sweet/Vicious, you’ve been missing out on life. She’s completely the reason I tuned in.

2. They had a Muslim woman actually explain why she wears her hijab. And why doing so makes her a feminist. When have you ever seen that before?

3. Did I mention that said hijab-rocking woman is a lesbian activist? Who it looks like is going to have a romance with Aisha Dee’s character?

4. They all work at a magazine and the boss is giving off serious Cat Grant vibes. Like badass woman with hardcore bonding heart-to-hearts with Katie Stevens’ character.

5. Oh yeah, Katie Stevens is totally in it. Faking It throwback anyone? She’s a new writer for the magazine who would rather cover serious topics than frilly ones.

6. They talk about owning your sexuality, with one of the girls standing up to her friends about it being her who gets to decide whom she sleeps with. Not to mention they talk about vaginas and vibrators. And a woman literally gets arrested for possessing sex toys.

7. THE FRIENDSHIP. The three main leads are adorably close. They bring champagne to work to celebrate a friend’s promotion, give random pep talks in the middle of the night, and help each other stalk exes, and its kinda hilarious?

8. I’m not going to deny it has some wrinkles to iron out, but if you don’t give it a chance to grow we may never see that. This is honestly the feminist show everyone is always wanting, so give it a chance before it goes the way of Sweet/Vicious, and we regret the missed opportunity.

“Let me tell you something about Janis Ian. We were best friends in middle school. I know, right? It’s so embarrassing. I don’t even…Whatever. So then in eighth grade, I started going out with my first boyfriend Kyle who was totally gorgeous but then he moved to Indiana, and Janis was like, weirdly jealous of him. Like, if I would blow her off to hang out with Kyle, she’d be like, "Why didn’t you call me back?” And I’d be like, “Why are you so obsessed with me?” So then, for my birthday party, which was an all-girls pool party, I was like, “Janis, I can’t invite you, because I think you’re lesbian.” I mean I couldn’t have a lesbian at my party. There were gonna be girls there in their bathing suits. I mean, right? She was a lesbian! So then her mom called my mom and started yelling at her, it was so retarded. And then she dropped out of school because no one would talk to her, and she came back in the fall for high school, all of her hair was cut off and she was totally weird, and now I guess she’s on crack.”

I’m seeing people complaining about the 13th doctor being a woman. I see people complaining about people wanting her to be a lesbian. But at the same time, the entire show the Doctor liked girls and since gender and sexuality don’t have to align with each other, why should the Doctor’s sexuality change with their gender? That’s not a thing. It would literally just make this a whole new level of toxic heteronormativity. They aren’t asking for her to be a lesbian to be “extra” or “progressive” they are literally using common sense. Besides, the doctor is MARRIED TO A WOMAN AND SHE ISN’T JUST GOING TO DIVORCE RIVER SONG JUST BECAUSE “oh shit, now I’m a girl, so we have to be totally straight lol bye girl”

trans bi Peter going to pride with his lesbian aunt may

“hold still,” may says, smearing gaudy lipstick over the apples of his cheeks. “this white lipstick keeps smudging!!”

peter snorts. “in the brands defense, i’m sure they assumed people would be putting it on their mouths not their cheeks.”

may rolls her eyes, applying another layer of the white lipstick to his face. “i can’t believe you’re defending some cheap dollar store makeup brand just so you can sass me. actually no, i can totally believe that.”

she leans back and looks at peter, she puts on her glasses and takes them off again, then lets out a satisfied sigh. “okay, buddy, you’re all set.”

peter hopped up ran over to the hallway mirror, and he immediately began giggling at what he saw. his hair was stood in all directions, stiff with hairspray and dyed with blue/white/and pink hair chalk. his face was streaked with deep pink/purples/and blues. he was wearing his trans pride shirt and had loads of bisexual pride pins on, along with some classic rainbow flag pins.

“i look so ridiculous.”

“i know, isn’t it great???” may chuckled, pulling her hair up into a bun. she wasn’t dressed as wild as peter, choosing to simply wear a rainbow t-shirt and some high waisted shorts. but she insisted that peter go all out, it was his first pride and she wanted him to let loose. he was so tense lately from school and spidey stuff, he needed a day to himself.

“okay, bag check!” peter yelled. “car keys?”

“check.”

“cell phones?”

“check.”

“wallets?”

“checkaroo.”

“spidey suit? just in case?”

“duh.”

“okay let’s go!” peter sung. “you ready?”

“heck yeah!! i’m gonna get so many phone numbers.”

peter rolled his eyes. “calm your jets, may.”

“i’m gonna meet your new mom tonight.”

“oh my god please stop talking.”

like if you put me in charge of writing a lesbian rom com about a woman having to come out to her family before she got married I would totally have the main character running around trying to come out to her extended family in increasingly hilarious and disastrous ways and then when the wedding day had arrived she would be like “shit I forgot to come out to my crotchety and undoubtedly conservative 90 yr old great aunt nancy she’s gonna show up and it’s going to be a shit show”

and then great aunt nancy is just like “good for you, me too, can you believe I convinced the str8s that my girlfriend betsy was just a roommate for 60 years lmao”

anonymous asked:

I'm pretty sure that Taylor is not as straight as she wants to seem, the question that I keep asking myself is: why doesn't she come out? Is she afraid her album sales will go lower? Does she fear she will lose her "good girl faith" (see what I did here (?????)) image? Yet she would be such an ispiration to all the LGBT members (like me) and she would be hella a lot more happier being confident with who she really is.

I totally get that mindset, but you also have to understand that Taylor is in a really awkward position on many levels. 

First of all, she is in a position where she comes from a strong country background in her career and her success was started based on her “young american country girl”/ “america’s sweetheart” image. So to go from a straight-laced country girl to a lesbian would be a big jump in terms of image for a lot of her fans. I mean just think about the outrage she faced when she switched to pop music.. The issue too with that switch is that because of her sweetheart image and her reasonably clean music, she has garnered a predominantly young, straight, female audience and because of her country roots, they also tend to be conservative. This is why her bearding works so well, because she tends to pick guys that her young fanbase fantasize about as well. Of course people went crazy over Hay!or, because at the time, Harry Styles had every tween girl’s heart and if they couldn’t have him, their “bestie” Taylor could! Taylor’s image relies on this “relate-ability” to her fans. This is why she uses tumblr, and invites her fans to her house, it all just adds to the idea that Taylor is just one of the gals, one of your besties. This image, however adds to the risk of her future coming out.. because it will give the idea that she has lied to all her “friends (fans). No one likes being lied to and discovering that all of the boys she’s dated were fake and her entire musical discography is about various girls would be seen as a massive deception. 

None of this even taking into account that at least half of her fanbase are  extremely homophobic and would drop her on the spot. 

So this whole fan issue would lose her a large portion of her fans (supposedly). I personally think she would end up gaining more fans because of her coming out. I think a large reason she is disliked by non-swifties is because of her image. She gives off a very guarded and fake image and I think a large portion of the GP sees through the narratives she pushes. A coming out would most likely clear up that fake-ness and would give her a sense of genuineness that would be popular. But I don’t think that is a risk that Taylor is willing to take just yet.

Another issue with her coming out, that I see, would be the net of gays that would be ragged out of the closet with her. As she is largely known for her relationships with men, her coming out would most likely raise some questions about the men shes dated. I think the older ones (Joe, John, Taylor(?)) but the more recent/high profile ones would be seriously brought into question. The biggest being Harry Styles. There is already a huge question mark placed beside his sexuality so Taylor coming out would most likely be the proverbial nail in the coffin. It would also put pressure on a few of her “besties” to also come out, most definitely some question would be placed on Dianna as she has always had some question. This would unravel quie a bit, placing Louis Tomlinson, Lea Michelle, Karlie and various others at risk as well. Now, I personally don’t think Taylor cares about the collateral damage much (other than Karlie and Di maybe) but it is a factor that her team has to consider. The time has to be right for her AND Karlie (assuming they’re still together at the time). 

So I totally agree that she will make a huge impact on the world by coming out, I personally believe it will be a while until we see that. As an earlier Gaylor Swiftie, I used to believe that she was about to come out, but taking all these factors into consideration I know that the stars will have to align to ever see a coming out on her part. I used to be quite hopeful that it would come soon, but now I am of the opinion that she will essentially glass closet her way through her career and will come out (possibly) once retired or once her audience shifts to an older more alternative crowd. I think TS6 will be incredibly important to her future, if she shifts to a more alternative pop sound, her audience will surely shift and may allow her to come out.. We will see.

For ‘Grey’s’ Doc Jessica Capshaw, Work-Life Balance Is a Total Myth | Yahoo Style

Jessica Capshaw, who plays doctor Arizona Robbins at the fictional Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, says starring on Grey’s Anatomy has changed her life. She’s loved playing a lesbian onscreen but had no idea what her story arc would be when she first signed on as a guest star.

“[Shonda Rhimes] called me into her office and she was really direct. She was like, ‘I want you to stay for another episode, and in the next episode, you’re going to kiss Callie,’” Capshaw tells Yahoo Style, referring to her former onscreen partner played by Sara Ramirez. ‘I’m game to try stuff. So I was like, ‘Yeah. OK!‘”

Eight seasons later, the actress is a mainstay on the medical drama. Her “go with the flow” attitude has taken her character through all sorts of crazy plotlines including the loss of a leg and a recent divorce, which has opened the door for Rhimes to toss another curveball Capshaw’s way: having her heat things up on creen with her real-life friend Marika Dominczyk.

“It was definitely one of those moments when you were like, ‘I’m going to kiss my friend.’ That’s going to happen,” she says, with a laugh.

When she’s not saving infants onscreen, Capshaw is busy parenting her tribe of four. And while she, like many working moms, is juggling a career, family, and personal life, she is quick to proclaim that the idea of work-life balance is a fantasy. Here’s more from this outspoken actress.

What do you love about playing Arizona?
There’s a lot of loss that transcends in themes with Arizona but I think this season gets to be more about finding what she loves and getting to be in a relationship that’s a little irreverent, to get to be chased by someone. She gets to feel the newness of being in a relationship that is physical that is not her ex. And that’s been really fun to play this season. It’s been nice and new and fresh.

Arizona was with Callie for so long. Is it fun to get to play the field now?
It is! This year, my love interest is played by Marika Dominczyk. I’ve known her for quite a while, and she’s a good friend of mine — and married to Scott Foley, who is also a friend of mine. It’s a very interesting negotiation, but we had fun. We laughed a lot. And our husbands have definitely had a laugh or two over it.

Do you feel honored to be able to help fight for equality by portraying this character on a weekly basis? And to eventually teach that lesson to your kids?
I never would have imagined that I would be able to play a character that would feel like it does so much good, whether it’s people who feel like the character resonates with them and it makes their day a little easier to see themselves represented. Or if it’s someone watching it who has someone in their life who is gay and they might have not understood it before and all of a sudden, they have another person or another thing to point to and say, ‘Oh that’s a different context.’ Being able to play a lesbian as a series regular on television has been enormously rewarding.

My daughter goes to preschool, and the preschool has all kinds of families. And I guess one of the kids said, ‘You have to have a mom and a dad to have a baby.’ And my daughter said, ‘No. No you don’t.’ And this was all overheard and told to me later. She said, in a very kind and patient way to that child, ‘There can be a mom and a mom and a dad and a mom and there can be a dad and a dad.’ I am so grateful that she will never know any different, and it will only be if she is in the presence of people who are on the wrong side of history or small-minded that she will hear anything other than that. I feel grateful to have her living in a family that will put her out into the world as someone who understands the world a little bit.

You work long hours on the show but have four kids and a husband at home. How do you do it all?
My schedule is incredibly all over the place. A lot of people, especially who are working moms, say it’s all about balance and trying to create a balance, and I respectfully disagree. I don’t know that any part of my day is ever balanced. I don’t spend equal parts being mom or being a worker, being a wife, being an advocate, being a humanitarian, whatever it is that I am endeavoring to be.

I constantly have to make sacrifices. With four kids, there are going to be that many holiday performances and there are going to be spring performances and field trips and muffin mom. So there is tons of stuff that is there for the doing, and I pick and choose what I can. I find in my own life as a mom, that I always try to pick the things that I actually enjoy because I think my kids see that in me. I have a crazy schedule, and sometimes it works for me to be able to do the thing that I said I was going to do, and sometimes it doesn’t. So you sacrifice sometimes being able to go to the thing or pick up the child. I had much more stringent and very inflexible ideas of what I thought it meant to be a great mom when I first started.

I remember thinking that there was just no way in the world that my kid would ever have a doctor’s appointment that I wouldn’t be there for. But when you’re just starting out, you think things should be one way and you’re humbled that it takes a village. And there will be times when your kid is sick and they need to go to the doctor and you’re not going to be there. But thank God they are still going to the doctor. It’s just so unrealistic to think that we can do it all.

Your youngest is 1. Has it been exciting to return to your pre-pregnancy style?
I never wore maternity clothes, except for a couple of pairs of — yes, it’s true — jean shorts that I wore where I swear the inseam was like half an inch. It was embarrassing. I like myself a pair of jean shorts. I just did a recent purging of my closet, and I’m not gonna lie, there were probably five to six one-inch if not half-inch inseam denim shorts that had to go. I really felt like maybe it was time. Maybe they have just run their course in my life.

Once I had kids, I definitely did start to realize how I’d like to dress that feels comfortable and at the same time it feels current and it feels stylish and you feel like it has an attitude or an opinion. And sometimes you are in your workout clothes until 4 in the afternoon.

Fashion-wise, what are you into these days?
I find that for me, in the summer especially, it’s all about dresses. It’s one stop. You put on your great dress and some sandals. I love almost the entire Ulla Johnson line. They are great dresses; they are easy to put on. I also love finding sandals that go with everything and then finding a pair that have a ton of color that I’m excited to pair with something. I stick with blues quite a lot — light blue, dark blue. Besides blue as a color, I tend to say in the neutrals and the nudes, the creams, and the whites and the golds. I love a button-down shirt. I love a great pair of jeans. And I love a heel. I loved when the block heels came back in. It was so great because they are so much more comfortable, especially when you have four kids.

I have some fellow-mom fashionistas. My friend Marliene Rentmeester has a blog called Le Catch. I get the little newsletter every day, and it’s always got something fun in it at every price point. Unless it’s very ephemeral and very inexpensive, I think at this point in my life, I’m all about the classics. What do you love that you’re going to love for a very long time?

What’s your stance on scrubs?
I count myself among the lucky that I get to go to work in my pajamas. It takes me like 14 seconds to get into my outfit.

Has it been fun dressing your kids?
I kind of live for it. I have a little bit of a problem! And on any given day, probably any of my children are dressed better than I am. They go through their clothes so fast, but I do have to say, I stretch it out.

How did they hide your baby bumps on set?
During the tenure of my time on the show, we went from having real x-rays and real clipboards to having iPads. I used to carry the pads and the x-rays and it would be right in front of my stomach, or I would stand behind desks and that kind of worked. Then the Microsoft pads came out and I was like, ‘I have less room to hide!’ So they had to play with camera angles. But I think if anybody looks at the past couple of seasons, you’ll definitely see when I’m pregnant and when I’m not! Debbie Allen directed an episode one time where she actually used an entire ambulance to hide my pregnant body. Everyone got a very good chuckle out of the fact that it took and entire ambulance to cover me. I was like, ‘Guys I’m not that big!’

I’ve heard that Shonda Rhimes is a huge advocate for working moms.
She is amazing. She understands that every mom is going to need something different. And what she’s been so great about is she goes to the person and says, ‘What do you want? What do you need? What would make this transition and being a mom good for you in this way?’ She’s a godsend, and she’s in the earned position where she has quite a bit of power and she commands attention and understanding from people. And she’s able to say “This needs to be looked at” to the powers that be that might not have been keen on expanding options for maternity leave and childcare. And I think that’s an incredible thing.

Do your kids visit you on set?
I do believe that sets are a workplace and you have a ton of adults, you have a ton of equipment, you have a lot of dust. You have people that are frustrated, people that are joyful. And I’m the worst, by the way. I don’t know how it’s possible but I never cuss at home. I get to work and I cuss like a sailor. And you’ve got words going around. So I am always like, “The set it not a place for kids.” But we all have kids come and visit in our trailer, and I feel like when we are on location, kids always come visit because it’s a park or a building and that’s fun.

Do your kids realize their mom is a big TV star?
People come up and they’ll say something or they’ll ask for a picture and my kids think it’s the funniest thing they’ve ever seen. They just think it’s hysterical! They don’t understand it.

Your mom was an actress. What did she teach you about navigating Hollywood as a woman?
I think the greatest gift that my mom gave me was that I never saw myself as less than because I was a woman. I never thought — and naively so — that I’d have to give up more or I couldn’t do as much or I couldn’t get as much. She has such a strong character and incredible conviction, and she’s done so much and she’s accomplished so much and she’s just traveled so far. I think you have to take it one step at a time. If you find out there is a guy getting paid more than you and you do the same job, then you pick that fight. But it can’t be about everything all the time, at least not in that moment. I think then people get overwhelmed and they lose sight of what they are actually fighting for. I think it’s very important to be organized in your call to action in order to understand what it is that you want to accomplish before you go out there with arms swinging.

Let me tell you something about Katy Perry. Her and Taylor Swift were best friends. I know, right? I bet it’s so embarrassing. I don’t even…Whatever. So then Taylor started going out with a guy named John Mayer who was totally gorgeous and Katy was like, weirdly jealous of him. Like, if she would blow her off to hang out with John, Katy would be like, “Why didn’t you call me back?” And Taylor would be like, “Why are you so obsessed with me?” So then, for Taylor’s birthday party, which was an all-girls pool party, Taylor was like, “Katy, I can’t invite you, because I think you’re a lesbian.” I mean she couldn’t have a lesbian at her party. There were gonna be girls there in their bathing suits. I mean, right? She was a LESBIAN. So then Katy’s producer called Taylor’s producer and started yelling at her, it was so retarded. And then she stopped writing songs because no one would talk to her, and then she came back in the spring with her new album, all of her hair was cut off and she was totally weird, and now I guess she’s on crack.

Ok... I want your headcanons for this scenario (just for fun): a lipstick lesbian gets elected as US president and her butch wife is first "lady", but is totally unladylike and idk it was fun to imagine. Give me some plot points of this thing :D

Hahahaha oh my god, this sounds amazing. Hm hahaha okay:

1) The Republicans have a field day going off during campaigning season about how dangerous it will be for two lesbians to run the country, because women menstruate and TWO! gOD, they would sync up the entire country and we couldn’t have every women in America PMSing at the same time!

2) When Lipstick Lesbian and Butch First Lady win Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell and Mike Pence all die simultaneously from co-occurring heart attacks from the shock.

3) President Lipstick Lesbian comes out and tells them they get two for the price of one because her Butch Lesbian wife is a constitutional lawyer who’s been servin Butch Looks to the community her entire life and also working pro bono defending LGBTQ homeless kids at the New York Ali Forney Center. First move Butch First Lady makes after Lipstick Lesbian wins the presidency is co-hosting when Lady Gaga visited Ali Forney Center back in December haha.

4) Butch First Lady always has iconique hairstyles, as the 8 years of their term goes on, the haircuts just get gayer and gayer and shorter and shorter with more colorful hair dye each time (go off on those butch hair styles, anon, get creative as fuck)

5) Lipstick Lesbian makes it a requirement for parents who send their kids to conversion camps to rot in prison for life.

6) Lipstick Lesbian’s VP is Joe Biden, mainly just because she loves how he points into the crowd all the time.

And lastly, and MOST importantly:

7) They make it top priority to put up a statue of our Mother Hillary Diane Rodham (purposefully leave out Clinton on the statue name) in the front of the Wall Street Bull, standing behind the little girl who’s currently there, acting as a protector for the little one!

Hahahaha, hope these are helpful. I would fucking love to read a fic about two lesbians running our country!

The Female Gaze

I think, in the end, it was about the women, not the gay. I think the groundbreaking new thing BBC Sherlock wanted to do was to strengthen and re-evaluate the role of women in Sherlock Holmes adaptions. But that went horribly wrong.

Mofftiss always said they wanted to right something with their adaption that everybody else did get wrong. Well, what could that have been, as Holmes has even been portrayed as a mice? We all hoped for Johnlock… as this has been a reading of the canon especially appreciated by female/queer fans, because it takes into account a somewhat different interpretation from the cis white het male reading. Sherlock Holmes is somewhat ideal as a character to captify female readers - as he retorts to thinking and talking and not to violence in the first place to solve a problem, which are classic female strategies. Holmes mostly employs his brain and not his fists - which sets him apart from most male action / crime solving heros in a way women can relate to (but remember Gatiss’s poem, advocating a more physical Holmes? Making him into a cis white male het hero…?) 

But as S4 clearly showed us that Johnlock wasn’t the goal - what else could have been the new, groundbreaking thing everybody had gotten wrong before?

Especially around TAB, but also before, Mofftiss talked excessively about the role of women in Sherlock Holmes adaptions; that the Zeitgeist when the stories had been written didn’t allow for many strong female characters. TAB was sold as a story about strong women and their empowerment - which sparked anger, because the women were portrayed as murderous furies. I’ll return to this later. The point here is that there were even panels at Sherlocked in 2016 harping on “Women in Sherlock”, emphasising their importance.

So, I think what Mofftiss felt necessary for a modern adaptation was to strengthen the role of female characters. Only, the brave thing then would have been to make Holmes and Watson both female. Which Mofftiss didn’t.

This got very long and is therefore continued under the cut.

Let me just say this

Amber- could EASILY be a lesbian, I mean that whole ep with sashi. It kinda felt like she was showing off and flirting when she and sashi were duking it out

General Bighorn- A literal butch lesbian and you can’t tell me other wise

Shirley B Awesome- dosnt need a man and would probably date a girl like sashi, small but ultimately deadly

Lady Starblaster- probably an asexual lesbian who thinks men are beneath her.

Phyllis- who the hell even knows

Other LGBTQ+

Madame president- would probs LOVE Lady Starblaster I mean she’s beautiful also has some weird monster thing going on (MP is totally chill with monsters)

Sashi- would date amber and they would be the best girlfriends

Vonnie- had a crush on a cute girl in high school once but ended up in a loving marriage with her bff Brock

Boone- is bi, and I’ll fight every single one of you on this topic

Larry- probably liked rippen at one point (or still does)

i-cannot-live-without-coffee  asked:

I love your headcanons! I’ll probably spam you frequently. How about Marie-Grace and Cecile, Kit and Ruthie, Samantha and Nellie, Emily, Julie and Ivy, and Chrissa, Sonali, and Gwen?

Marie-Grace and Cecile

  • Listen there’s a lot of discussion of which American Girl is the gayest and while it’s probably not MG and Cece they I think are the closest to being canon
  • Like. Look at this shit
  • GAY
  • “Best Friends” Just call them the Red and Blue Gal Pals we know they are
  • I don’t know if “single” women could adopt orphans in the 1800s (I’m guessing they couldn’t) but I can guarantee you they kept volunteering at the orphanage and consider them all their children
  • Cecile ends up being a lot taller than MG and MG has to stand on her tiptoes to kiss her
  • They both sing the prettiest duets together
  • I feel like Marie-Grace would become a popular singer around the area she lives in, while Cecile would become a writer and poet.

Kit and Ruthie

  • They’re both Bi and in a poly relationship with each other and Stirling
  • Kit and Ruthie have known each other since they were toddlers, and have like a million inside jokes
    • None of which Stirling understand
    • “Hey Kit… watermelon” “WHAT DOES THAT MEAN”
  • Kit does pretty well in writing/reporting, and adopts like a million Basset Hound Puppies
  • “Kit… we can’t keep them all…” “We can and we will
  • Wherever they live they build a treehouse in the backyard if they can
  • Stirling probably volunteered for World War II, but he probably still had his million allergies and wasn’t considered healthy enough
  • If he did go tho Ruthie and Kit send him like a million letters a day
    • A lot of them are “I found another dog and you can’t tell me no”
  • Every time a relative gives Kit a fancy dress as a gift Kit gives it to Ruthie. If neither of them like it they cut it up and sew it into an outfit they would wear, since Kit is not really a spender (for obvs reasons) and so doesn’t have that many outfits anyway

Samantha and Nellie

  • I actually think Nellie might be the previously mentioned gayest doll but Molly also gives her a run for her money
  • Whenever Sam and Nellie are apart they call each other frequently or send letters if they’re really far away
  • Even if they’ve only been apart for like 20 minutes
  • They tend to spend more time outside than inside, and have a lot of picnics in the fields.
  • Nellie also spends a lot of time volunteering to help other orphans at the orphanage. Jenny and Bridget help out when they get older, too.
  • Also Samantha definitely babysat baby Rebecca when she was younger. I will fight for that Headcanon

Emily

  • She keeps in touch with Molly a lot once she’s back in England because she’s gay
  • She sometimes visits her Aunt in America and often stays with Molly while she does
  • In the 1950′s when she comes to visit and she would totally buy those Poodle Skirts she would look great in them
  • She and Linda sometimes team up to prank Molly and it will often go horribly wrong but it’s fun anyway
  • She’ll then turn around and prank Linda with Molly
  • Once she warms up to Molly and her friends she becomes the Prank Queen

Julie and Ivy

  • Julie’s sister Tracy is a lesbian and introduces her to the Gay Rights Movement (which I believe was really big in San Francisco in the 70′s)
  • Tracy has a girlfriend there and her parents are pretty accepting but it takes Julie a while to understand, but she still supports her sister and goes with her to meetings and stuff
  • As she gets older she starts to realize that she likes girls too and is like “… OH”
  • What she doesn’t realize is Ivy has had a crush on her for ages 
  • One time they’re hanging out and Julie is like “Hey Ivy, if I liked girls like Tracy does would you still like me” and Ivy responds by kissing her
  • In 1978 the movie Grease comes out and Julie adores it.
  • She and Ivy go all 50′s aesthetic for a while and they sing “You’re the One That I Want” to each other all the time
  • “Single” Parents were allowed to adopt children by the 1970′s (I literally just googled it now) so Ivy and Julie probably both adopted once they were older
  • Julie continues playing basketball forever and teaches both her kids and the neighborhood kids how to play, often acting as a Coach

She’s kinda young for me to really feel comfortable answering this, but I could totally see her as a lesbian when she grows up!

misc

  • Has attempted to sneak candy and toys into formal events by hiding them in her hair. It didn’t work
  • Possesses the uncanny ability to convince anyone to give her an airplane ride. Xander, Benny, even Jakob!
    • She got Arthur to do it once but he ended up letting go and sending her flying, thankfully it was in the middle of a grassy area so she didn’t get hurt!
  • Carries a first aid kit at all times with bandages, small vials of vulnerary, and cough drops. If she spies a boo-boo on anyone, she will fix it, even if she has to have Effie restrain them to do so.

Literally how is there any question at all that she’s gay have you seen her?? Thigh-high boots are gay culture

ND

Bipolar perhaps? I don’t mean like the whole “sweet outside of battle, deadly inside it” thing because that’s not what bipolar is, but I can see her having depressive episodes where she isolates herself from her family and even retainers for days at a time.

misc

  • She can easily lift any of her siblings, even Xander in full armor. She will do this to humiliate him in front of the others if he ever upsets her >:D
  • Her love of hugs is well-known, to the point that even the more touch-averse members of the army will try to avoid her lest they be ensnared in one. When she finds out someone doesn’t like being hugged, she feels bad for having intimidated them to the point where they couldn’t tell her before, and makes a point of simply patting them on the head or finding another form of contact they’re comfortable with
  • Totally wears a nightgown/pajamas around her house/palace/living quarters whenever she can get away with it

I just wanted to say something about the anon that was talking about Zoe and compulsory heterosexuality. I'm bi, myself and when I was originally watching Next Class I just assumed she was bi (though in retrospect it might have just been to spite Tristan and his biphobia) and I was really excited about it because we had basically the same family situation and I hadn't seen that on tv before. Obviously, Zoe knows herself best, and her being a lesbian is totally valid, so I got over it (1/2)

(2/2) I just wanted to share my particular perspective

Hey there!

I am not discounting bi people’s perspectives at all. I think there is so much difference in a straight person going “Um, this doesn’t fit my idea of what a lesbian is!” and a bi/pan/queer person saying “Until she labelled herself, I deeply related to her character and hoped she would represent my identity”.

Back in DLB and Next Class season 1, Zoe’s sexuality was ambiguous, both to her and to the audience, Back then, I very much thought they were going to make her bi, and was hoping they would because bisexuals have such little representation on television. I was pretty vocal about it! I had a tag for it and everything!

Zoe ended up being gay, and her coming out story was fantastic, and she is gay because she says she is. But at the same time I don’t discount the feelings of bi/pan/queer girls who were hoping she would represent them.

And hey, my own experiences cloud my judgement too. Back when DLB aired, I was still identifying as bi. Now I very firmly identify as a lesbian. Maybe I was projecting my own feelings on Zoe? Who knows.

Anyways, thank you for your perspective.

Anonymous said: When is No Mercy coming out? Y'know, like the demo?

Our goal is to have a pretty solid vertical slice of the game ready in the next three months or so, so we can start our kickstarter and steam greenlight :) I doubt this will be playable by the public but you’ll be able to see gameplay videos and know a lot more about how the game itself is going to work.

Thank you so much! I’m really excited to see where it goes too. You have an awesome day as well!

today i hung out with my gf at her house and all i thought about was making out with her and cuddling but i'm an anxious lesbian who's never dated anyone before and especially not kissed anyone

being nervous about wanting to kiss someone when you haven’t done it before is totally and completely normal!! maybe it would help if you told your gf how you feel? she might be nervous about it too and that might take some pressure off? just take it both at your own pace and if making out doesn’t go perfectly the first time it just takes practice! communicate with each other and practice consent and all that jazz <333

I like to cannon Maggie as the mom that always knew Emma wasn't straight and secretly wanted Audrey to be with her. She would definitely be a pflag mom.

YES SHE WOULD GO TO PRIDE WITH THEM AND WEAR RAINBOW EVERYTHING AND BE SO HAPPY AND MAKE A SIGN THAT SAYS “I LOVE MY LESBIAN DAUGHTERS.” TOTAL PFLAG MOM IM CRYING

Calling all lesbians (trans-inclusionary obviously)

Please reblog if you think trans lesbians are beautiful, worthy of respect and would totally fuck / date one should the right lovely trans lady come along.

In response to a truly horrible person who took it upon themselves to reblog someone’s trans visibility post and call her a predatory man for identifying as a lesbian. When called out, she stated that no lesbian would want them (not even a lesbian herself btw) so I’m going to prove her wrong.

Edit- this applies to all trans wlw. I said lesbian to link it to an argument where a terf didn’t believe those things, spoke on behalf of lesbians and when I tried to tell her that as a lesbian, the trans woman in question was beautiful, she said smth like ‘haha actual lesbians let’s take a headcount’ in a mocking way so … I took a headcount and looks like well over a thousand actual wlw agree with me!
Why were you talking to Janis Ian?

She’s so pathetic. Let me tell you something about Janis Ian. We were best friends in middle school. I know right? It’s so embarrassing. I don’t even – whatever. So then in eighth grade, I started going out with my first boyfriend, Kyle, who was totally gorgeous but then he moved to Indiana. And Janis was, like, weirdly jealous of him. Like, if I would blow her off to hang out with Kyle, she’d be like, “Why didn’t you call me back?” And I’d be like, “Why are you so obsessed with me?” So then, for my birthday party, which was an all-girls pool party, I was like, “Janis, I can’t invite you because I think you’re a lesbian.” I mean, I couldn’t have a lesbian at my party. There would be girls there in their bathing suits. I mean, right, she was a lesbian! So then her mom called my mom and started yelling at her, it was so retarded. And then she dropped out of school because no one would talk to her, and then she came back in the fall for high school. All of her hair was cut off and she was totally weird, and now I guess she’s on crack.
