do you ever just
'i love you so i'm going to elect to ignore that comment this time'
I’ve noticed that a lot of y’all are really into the hit Netflix show Orange is the New Black. Now, I’m not going to bore you with any prison abolitionist rant here. I just have a request.
You know how Miss Claudette doesn’t get letters? How Tricia says that her friends used to write her a lot in the beginning but tapered off? How Piper mentions that the only mail she got that week was a card from her grandma? Well these are all fairly accurate things for real prisoners.
If you love this show and your heart hurts for them, that’s fine. Just please consider taking the time to get a prisoner penpal.
There are hundreds of lists of prisoners who need penpals. One of the best resources in the world is black and pink’s database of queer and trans prisoners. That’s at:
I could go on and on about how important this is, but if you’ve watched OITNB, you should already know. Please consider sharing just a few minute of your life every month with someone who could really use it.
the two main reasons i like pairings with height differences
- the shorter of the two pulling the taller down into a kiss
- the taller of the two lifting the shorter to kiss them
- the taller one accidentally elbowing the shorter one in the face
- the shorter one elbowing him back in the crotch
disasterscenario and I decided to do that thing where you make OCs for each other and then show them to each other and you have to make them work in a relationship.
And we decided to do monsters.
This is Herbert. He loves plants. Then he died and bonded with mutant protozoans. And he’s kind of fine with that.
Yeeeee this was a fun exercise I wanna do it again sometime!
This is Sarrum. He comes from a long line of magical gate guardians, but these days his family does private security for high profile fae. He’s the youngest and runtiest of the lot, and the only one of his 9 older brothers who can’t shoot a gun to save his life and prefers reading and history to fencing and boxing.
He’s a well kept secret in his family— and by well kept I mean he’s spent most of his life hiding out in his family’s vast underground libraries.
When he meets Herb he gets the chance to travel the world and explore places he never dreamed he’d be able to visit. Granted, most of those places are swamps, which are not necessarily where a traditionally desert-dwelling creature wants to be— but anything beats locking yourself in the catacombs for a week to escape another useless round of self defense training.

instead of crying to biphobes about how NOT ALL BISEXUALS WILL CHEAT ON YOU!!!!!11!1!! and we can stayz faithful tooooo omg we can fall in the truuue lovez with our one and onlyyyyy!!!! just like you can!!!!!!!
- acknowledge that non-monogamous non-monosexuals exist and their relationships are no less valid than yours
- work to unlearn the stigma and erasure about/of non-monogamy
- stop perpetuating the idea that only monogamous bisexuals deserve respect.
