After seeing those Swan Queen-y spoiler pics, I’m ready for another season of gorgeous peacoat modeling and disappointment.
It’s painful to think about how it was someone’s job to spray Angie Harmon down to make her look sweaty for this episode.
I ship it.
Screaming with happiness because I am logged into Tumblr!
More than 24hours without you all… How did I cope?!
Now for the Rizzles tag!
Was telling a friend how, in my dream, my mum tried to get in the way of me going on a date with Rose McIver and my friend - I’ll love her forever - reached for her phone and was ready to ring my mum and tell her to get out of my [dream] love life ;)
According to @Bastardsonvan who took the pics, Lana was fixing JMO’s hair.
In the first pic she has hair on her face.
Cute little moment!
(…just told a friend that i’m busy…turns out i meant “i am looking at pictures of lana and jmo doing each other’s hair”…)
Personal and political lesbian visibility.
By Lisa Wade, PhD
Suzy S. sent in an illuminating confession from PostSecret in which a woman confesses to being girly, but feels like she has to look more masculine because she’s a lesbian. It reads: “Because I’m a LESBIAN I feel obligated to cut my hair short and wear men’s clothing… I’m actually really girly.”
This woman says she feel “obligated” to tone down her girliness. In fact, adopting a masculinized appearance is one way that women signal to other people that they are gay, something they need to do because heterosexuality is normative and, therefore, generally assumed of everyone in the absence of signs otherwise. There are lots of reasons why lesbians may want to be visible.
They may want to be a symbol of the very existence of gay people and thereby fight the assumption that everyone is straight. They may want to find other gay women with which to build community or to find a girlfriend. Or they may simply want to ward off the unwanted attention of men. The style choices made by lesbians, then, aren’t simply about fashion or some internal inclination towards the masculine, as our confessor neatly illustrates. In some cases, at least a little bit, they’re strategic communication.
