Happy birthday to erinkyan - genuinely on of the sweetest, kindest people I know - always generous with his time and wisdom and looking for ways to be a better human being. You inspire me to be better too.
Every time I have chocolate self-saucing pudding it reminds me of when I was growing up and mum would let me make a cheap packet mix and when we didn’t have ice-cream we’d drizzle a bit of milk over it to cut through the richness.
To this day it’s a comfort thing for me. And even though I always have ice-cream, I wait for it to melt into the pudding a little so it gets that milky-pudding texture.
I got THE best yoga leggings on sale from @femaleforlife and I’m trying them at an after work class for the first time! #yoga #fatyoga
Imagine if you could turn on a special kind of light and see all the places on your body your lovers have kissed you.
It would be hard to hate your belly or your bum or your thighs with tangible evidence that someone else loved that part of you - and may well love it still.
My friend insists bi means two and I'm only attracted to the binary genders and it's transphobic idk what else to say??
Tell them that by their logic lesbians are from the Isle of Lesbos, gay people are really happy people, heterosexual means attracted to different genders (that is more than one) because it comes from the Greek “heteros” meaning “different” or “other”.
Then tell them that both heterosexuals and homosexuals are transphobic because they are only attracted to genders within the gender binary (which isn’t even necessarily true btw) and that only pansexuals cannot be transphobic because they are attracted to everything, including innanimate objects and philosophical concepts, I mean everything means EVERYTHING you’re not a real pansexual otherwise!
Then say that transphobic is the literal fear of trans people and we should be kind because they can’t help having a phobia, it’s not like it’s a system of oppression that trans people that is composed of more than etymology, that would silly and counterproductive!
And finally tell them that pineapples are apples that grow on pine trees because words are literal and never change over time or with context.
Then take a dictionary, burn it in front of them and chant “where is your word god now?!”*
*Last part is optional and should not be done in an enclosed space.
This is a great post, but it was the last bit about the dictionary that compelled me to re-blog it.
'WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW?!!?!?!!!'
