This video is an embodiment of everyone I hate in this world, and I fucking love Portlandia just for the Feminist Bookstore skits. And no, I’m not anti-feminism. Had to put that in there because many people on Tumblr have the exact same thought process as these two hilarious characters.
I love animals so much :’)
Because if I don’t make lists like this, I will literally spend an entire day alternating between eating, going on the computer, and watching television. And that’s just not right.
- Do morning yoga √
- Go on a bike ride
- Call back Express and Pet Supermarket
- Write at least 1000 words for NaNoWriMo
- Print out more resumes
- Apply at Nature’s Table and Panita Bakery
- Clean room
- Hang shit up on walls
- Clean out bunnies litter boxes
- Make watermelon sparkling water
And other shit.
Are we really going to let this be all Lolita does until she dies?
I want to help all captive orca’s, but I think Lolita should be first on the list. Poor girl </3
The courage of this cross-dressing, heterosexual father-of-two will astonish you.
The LA Times recently published a story about Sissy Goodwin, a straight, married science professor from Douglas, Wyoming. Sissy - who adopted the name as a means of empowerment after being called a ‘sissy’ as a slur - likes to ‘cross-dress’, but he prefers to refer to it as ‘gender independence’. He’s endured years of physical and verbal abuse from his local community, but his sheer determined bravery has begun to change things for the better.
In 1972, caught in a bout of severe depression, Sissy admitted to himself that he would need to accept who he was or he may end up taking his own life. His wife Vickie, having suspected his interest in women’s clothing, struggled with his decision at first, but now accepts her husband absolutely. The class he teaches at the local Casper College even turned up one day wearing pink hoodies and ribbons in their hair - not out of ridicule, but out of solidarity, a gesture which almost brought Sissy to tears.
Sissy’s 40 year-old son Travis used to get bullied over his father’s choice of clothing and would blame him for his problems. Not any more. “He’s the most brilliant man I know,” says Travis. “He’s not just physically strong, but mentally as well. He really is my hero”.
Sissy talks about positive changes he’s experienced from 1:15 in the video. Read the full article at the LA Times website.
this makes me so happy especially since he’s in my state
but it makes me sad that he said when he visited my university is when someone called him a sissy…… he makes a good point about how wyoming is called the equality state and yet doesn’t care shit about equality (in general). i admire this guy so much for getting over the embarrassment of people constantly staring at him and just being who he is. there is nothing nothing nothing wrong with being feminine as a male, or vice versa. i don’t know why our culture has such a terribly strict stigma about it.
I CAME UP WITH MY NOVEL IDEA FOR NANOWRIMO!!! Finally. And, I’m going out to dinner with my old friend, Megan.
Also, I’m an asshole!
