"I’ve always known that being a woman was complicated. That it comes with a price. That the joy I find in being desirable, is also a liability - I’ve been taught that."
I don’t know if you guys are familiar with Aerie but it’s the lingerie line that is a sister store to American Eagle and they tweeted this this morning and it made me so happy.
Aerie is seriously a wonderful place to buy bras and undies. I am a 38DD and they always have something hella cute in my size and if they don’t have a style I want, they will order it online for me and have it shipped to my house with the shipping on them. And their bras beat the crap out of Victoria Secrets. The single bra I bought from Victoria’s Secret fell apart the first time I washed it. My Aerie bras? I have been buying from them since sophomore year of high school and I have yet to have a bra fall apart. Sorry I just really love Aerie and they just need more love gomen
omg i already loved aerie but this made it even better!
My sister gave me a Aerie bra not so long ago (too big for her) and holy schnitzel, I never had a bra fit so well and be so comfortable. Makes the twins look amazing. I think I’ll ditch La Senza and buy all my bras from there.
Okay. I think this is so good and great and wonderful and WHY ISN’T EVERYONE DOING THIS? PLZ.
"no more supermodels" is a pretty effing lousy caption above that BEAUTIFUL NON-RETOUCHED LADY. That girl is a supermodel. You are a supermodel. We are supermodels, okay? Okay.
cannot handle it

I wrote this lyric essay about
being bisexual and coming out and social “norms” and stereotypes and love. I wrote about lovely, messy love.

Ellen Page Comes Out
“I’m here today because I am gay. And because… maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility. I also do it selﬁshly, because I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I’m standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain. I am young, yes, but what I have learned is that love, the beauty of it, the joy of it and yes, even the pain of it, is the most incredible gift to give and to receive as a human being. And we deserve to experience love fully, equally, without shame and without compromise.”
Excuse me while I never spend the money and instead fall into a pit of stress because there are too many choices.
We have released our first e-book. It is a choose your own adventure book of Americana and Alt-Lit absurdity by John Mortara.
this fucking cover gets me every time. it’s so goddamn gorgeous. get into this. john is good. we are good. everything is good. this book is good.
this is really happening. this is not a dream or a drill. you are standing in a large, complex, cavern. you have no lantern. you will laugh and maybe even cry. you are likely to be eaten by something.
New video! This week, I’m talking about Crystal Bowersox, Alan Cumming, bisexual erasure, and why it all matters.
Super important and informative. I went home for break and my (usually supportive and awesome) mom mentioned casually that I was “no longer bi” since I’m dating a man and I just had the hardest time trying to tell her how wrong she was because she really didn’t see it as a big deal. Should have shown her this.
