screenshotted from my email bc tumblr won’t display it for some reason???
anyway, why would bisexuality be brought up in her story when the first person who broke it was her, in an essay about realizing she was gay? and why would other media bring it up in relation to her story? wouldn’t that be, idk, kind of homophobic - to randomly throw bisexuality into a story of a lesbian married to a man discovering her lesbianism?
further, idk why any of that would be “due to Morelli’s failure to acknowledge bisexuality as a legitimate sexual orientation.”
what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?
It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870
I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.
I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question

Can we talk for a minute about Lauren Morelli (Orange is the New Black writer) coming out as gay and leaving her husband for Samira Wiley (Poussey)? Can we talk about bisexual erasure both in this situation and in Orange is the New Black? This show has tackled so many feminist/gender/race issues yet has completely ignored such an important identity, and I’m guessing this is due to Morelli’s failure to acknowledge bisexuality as a legitimate sexual orientation.
wow wtf, r u seriously trying to suggest that lauren morelli and other women like her who realize later in life that they’re gay are actually bisexual bc they married/slept with/dated men?? that morelli couldn’t possibly know herself better than you, internet stranger, and have discovered an exclusive interest in and attraction to women???
also, like, she’s not the only writer for oitnb…
Check out this amazing new comic by Rachel Masilamani over at Mutha Magazine
“This comic is about access to treatment, deciding to have a baby, and how the latter affects the former,” and it’s amazing.
i think it’s rly important to let u kno that this song is, for me, pretty much The Song for captain america: the winter soldier
if i were to ever make a shitty fanvid, it would be for catws and set to this song
your blood on me
and my blood on you
but to make you bleed -
the only thing i wouldn’t do
i mean literally if your pov comes down to “it’s ok for a man and a woman to have kids but two men or two women? no they shouldn’t do that” you’re a straight-up homophobe, i don’t care how ~~“anti-assimilationist”~~ or whatever your reasoning is.
just so you know what is going on in my country right now:
- votes came in for independence 45% yes 55% no
- media very “”no”” centred and bias
- unionists are now attacking yes voters
- a seventeen year old girl has been stabbed
- they are burning our saltire giving nazi salutes
- our first minister resigns
please signal boost this
I was finally worn down by seeing all of the expertly crafted madden gifs on this site, so I thought I’d made some of my own and share.
Please, use them to your heart’s content.
omg i feel like these were personally made specifically for me
packers players and grumping about inadequate sources
someone posted the other day about mentioning the word “m*nosexual” on facebook and having a bunch of straight people come out of the woodwork to be really enthusiastic about the concept and i’ve been thinking about that a lot
it’s really telling if straight people love that idea and of course they would, why wouldn’t they love anything that takes the focus off them and suggests that gay people too can oppress based on sexual orientation. it just confirms their suspicion that gay people aren’t any better after all. so how oppressed can gay people be, really, and how guilty should they feel, really.
tbh im rly not abt people openly abusing prescription drugs like it’s a fun and cool thing when there are people that don’t have access to them who Actually need them
also don’t ask your friends if you can have/buy their medication that is rude n insensitive
