ayabug replied to your post: Could Hemlock Grove be any worse? No. I tried to watch it but gave up. Me too. And honestly, I was sort of intrigued by the poor writing and bad acting. But I’m not just gonna sit around and watch a privileged ass white boy casually rape women (especially Asian women who are already highly fetishized and sexualized) nope.

Wanna help my wedding be perfect?
I’m putting together a brooch bouquet! but I need way more brooches than I can afford on my own. I’ve found at fabulousbrooch.com that I love (and that only cost $3.00 to $4.50!) I need about 85 to have a really full bouquet, and I think I have about ten so far with less than six weeks to go before the wedding! If you want to help me out, the list of brooches I like and an address...
I can write bad poems all day like it’s no one’s business but this wedding vows shit is hard.
my legs hurt from either standing around all morning at work or sitting around all afternoon since. and I don’t want to do this editing for this girl. But I told her I would send her article back today. and I need to stop whining about it because I’m getting paid.
It's funny to me...
kiriamaya: …that so many people think that gender is absolutely and immutably defined by God and/or evolution, and at the same time think that it’s so terribly fragile that merely letting little girls play with trucks, or little boys wear pink, will utterly destroy gender (and therefore society) FOREVER. It’s like… is anyone thinking this through?

ayabug replied to your post: I also love thinking about my upcoming nuptials…. When is it? :) June 15th! 50 days. Eek!
I also love thinking about my upcoming nuptials. Stuart is the most amazing ever and we’re going to have such a bamf wedding. Today has been a pretty good day in my brain. Very little darkness and a hell of a lot of excitement for this summer (thoughts of teaching, wedding, and tubing down the river. mmmm)
I honestly really like planning classes. Even if I didn’t get to choose the books and will have to pdf 23ut7trgjp98 pages from other books that are much better than the ones assigned to the courses. I love teaching so goddamn much.

angrybrownbaby: I laugh when Neanderthal men can’t stand when a woman is not going to put up with their shit. They get offended when a woman says no more. It just makes it obvious for a lot of men, their masculinity is dependent on being dominant over someone. I’ve even received mild threats over my post about men fearing me. Weak shit like that just makes me laugh. Your insecurity feeds me...
