"Yeah, everybody’s so excited to be offended!" *gross laughter* -Katy Perry on Ryan Seacrest this morning.

“I’m a drag queen, or what you would call a ‘fish queen’—someone who really personifies what it means to be a woman. I’m not afraid to take most of my makeup off and walk around in clothes like these. I tend to reserve my more feminine clothing for my performances. On days like today, I like playing with gender nonconformity. I have a large range of possibilities, so I mix men’s and women’s clothes.” “Tell me something about drag queens that most people don’t know.”“One of the more surprising facts is that there are a lot of drag queens who are straight men. Many married men do drag on a regular basis.And to dispel some rumors—we are not prostitutes or homeless people. Many of us are educated and lead productive lives. Many of us live full time as women and also do drag. Many of us lead seemingly heterosexual lives and only do drag on weekends because it’s fun. And we are not evil. We don’t fool around in seedy, degrading bars. We don’t whore ourselves out to people. We want the same things that a lot of normal people do—to have a successful career, a good life, and a healthy love life.”

i made a thing

THIS IS RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS.

#thank you for making this friend!!

you’re very welcome friend!

Also relevant to my interests.

Some people don’t like labels, because they feel the world is trying to put them in a box. Some people need labels in order to understand what’s going on within themselves and relate it to others. Both are valid.

The important thing to remember is that humans control and dictate language, the language does not control humans. Use words that you feel describe you, don’t worry about trying to be more like a word. People come in infinite variations, and sometimes there aren’t enough words to explain all the subtle differences. We just want to get as close as we can.

shelves-of-you and I talked about this recently and she gave me a better understanding. Personally, I use pan most of the time and I use it to emphasize that I can be attracted to people regardless of gender. However, I see similarities between bi and pan. And I do use bi sometimes to not confuse people.

In case you are a fan of same sex unions, weddings in general, or are just really itching to know what I look like (or my wife, as I haven’t posted a picture of her yet [she’s the adorable one in the suspenders]) here’s the promised wedding picture spam.

Best day of my life. 

Okay, but see here’s the thing. I want all of you to understand this thing:

I posted these wedding photos because this was the most amazing day of my life. I’ve been married for about two months, and goddammit, it has been just the best, you know? Like, this woman, in these photographs? She’s incredible. She’s unreal. She’s kind and she’s thoughtful and she’s everything I never thought I deserved. She’s the woman who I get to spend the rest of my ridiculously lucky life with.

It’s so simple to me, to us.

But it’s so complicated to so much of the world. She and I can’t walk into the grocery store holding hands. I get tight-lipped when someone compliments my ring at work because I can’t determine if they are going to be “cool” with it or not. If they’ll report me for being “inappropriate” in our online survey. Again. My wife was fired from a job as a driver for a children’s occupational therapist because her boss saw us kiss at the mall— because she couldn’t have “that kind of person” around children. I walked myself down the aisle at my wedding because a church told my parents that it wasn’t possible for them to attend my wedding.

And we’ve had it so easy! Our lives have been blissfully carefree compared to so many. We have the most amazing friends and family and life is pretty fucking sweet.

But here’s the thing I wanted to tell you. This post I made, to try to just share my little square of happiness with my little square of the internet, has literally tens of thousands of notes. Tens of thousands. I’ve gained hundreds of followers and my inbox runneth over. And not a single message I’ve received, not a single reblog that I have been able to find, has had anything to say but amazing, beautiful, kind words of congratulations. No bullying. No trolling. No inappropriate offers or lewd remarks. Out of tens of thousands.

That’s not something I’m used to. It’s not something anyone in the LGBTQ community is used to.

Do you even get how amazing you are? You, the denizens of Tumblr. Do you understand that? I am so exceedingly proud of you, you wacky kids. You are all such incredible people, with such kind and open hearts, and I wish I could hug each and every one of your necks. 

So if you are having any sort of rough day, please know that there is this tiny lesbian couple in northeast America who likes you just a whole lot, okay? You’ve overwhelmed us. 

Thank you. We love you.

This sweet woman right here is Dolores Huerta. She not only worked alongside Cesar Chavez to get migrant workers equal rights, but she actually accomplished something while doing it. Including:
1960 bill to permit people to take the California driver’s examination in Spanish
1962 legislation repealing the Bracero Program
1963 legislation to extend Aid to Families with Dependent Children to California farmworkers
The 1975 California Agricultural Labor Relations Act
She’s been arrested 22 times for participating in non-violent acts of civil disobedience. She serves on the board of People for the American Way, Consumer Federation of California, and the Feminist Majority Fund.
In 1988 she was severely beaten by San Francisco police during a peaceful rally against George H. W. Bush’s candidacy for president. They ruptured her spleen and broke a few of her ribs. Understandably, she took a break from protests and focused her attention more on behind-the-scenes work. During this time, she focused on women’s rights. She spoke up for Latinas to run for office and continues to do so.
This woman not only fought for women’s rights in her spare time, but she served on boards of feminist organizations, nominated Hillary Clinton for presidency in 2007, and she’s an award winning board member of Equality California. That’s right. This BAMF is an LGBT rights activist, too. She once wrote the National Organization for Marriage a letter informing them that she was not stupid enough to fall for their tricks and that she chose to support same-sex marriage.
And she somehow found time to have 11 children! She’s an amazing role model for all of her kids and I love this woman!!!!
And, she’s speaking at my freakin college on Wednesday!
Wednesday, October 9th at 11:30am at Citrus College and I get to see her speak about her life. And I got invited to be part of the special luncheon they have in her honor after her speech. I get to sit a table with this woman (a fellow vegetarian) and pick her brain. Me! A 25 year-old activist gets to talk to one of the most prominent female leaders of my time. I could cry.
