theres this chalk wall in my town where you can write whatever you want, and somebody drew this instead
To be honest, I wasn’t really too sure what to expect. Would I get reprimanded, sent home, or even fired? I can’t pretend that I didn’t worry about those possibilities (especially with a child on the way, so I need all the money I can get, ha), but I really felt that the look itself was solid and well put together, and at the end of the day I really felt that I needed to just do it ….
And nothing happened. I received nothing but compliments on the look from many of my friends, and that was that. I’m really happy about that, because I do not wear the things I do to seek attention. Ideally, I don’t want my sartorial decisions to be any more out of place in situations or in people’s minds than anyone else in the room, though I realistically know that at this point in time it often is. Skirts and dresses for men won’t become as commonplace or accepted as women wearing pants or other traditionally men’s styles unless we do actually just embrace it and start wearing it out, which is why I do what I do. Speaking plainly, the end goal is for skirts, dresses, tights, heels, and other currently female-gendered clothing to be normal sartorial options in a man’s wardrobe. I feel like I pulled that off here.
Unf. Have I mentioned how attractive I find the combination of man(lyperson)+ladies ‘power dressing’ outfits? Because I do. Also Michael Spookshow’s ethos is, as always, admirable.
I’m gonna throw my computer in the trash.
Gay Pride Events in Uganda
“The importance of this Pride event cannot be understated. The fact that these brave activists could pull this off in this milieu of persecution is a great victory for the community. Visibility like this notes the ongoing legacy of late activist David Kato, it defies the export of American Evangelical hate, and it helps ensure defeat of the Bahati Bill. It shows leadership for all of Africa, and above all it shows that the LGBT people of Uganda simply refuse to give up their right to exist and to live their natural born sexual orientation.”

Their bravery is inspirational.
This weekend, activists in Uganda - a country where homosexuality is punishable by death - held their first Pride.
This is the epitome of courage. I have no other words.
Sonnet by Billy Collins.
I admit I’m not super well-read where poetry’s concerned, but I do know that I love Billy Collins.
I’m pretty sure I’ve posted some of these before… But here’s all 9 dinosaur comics messages I’ve put up for my class this semester, plus one from a mystery source/secret admirer.
