someone on facebook posted this intending it to be negative but instead it’s INCREDIBLE. go girl scouts
God I hope this is all true because if so EXTRA THIN MINTS FOR ME THIS YEAR.
At first I thought this was going to be another “this company sucks so don’t buy their products!” PSA. How wrong I was! Go Girl Scouts!
Back when I was more active on tumblr. I received several questions along the lines of “how can I reconcile my spirituality and sexuality?” I don’t think I answered a single one of them. At the time, I was still wrestling with my own issues of being queer, trans*, and Muslim,…
Why does this not have more reblogs?
Amazing article. Required reading.
If butch daddies want to crochet, if twinkly ladyboys are sometimes tops in bed, if burly bears can do BDSM play as little girls, if femme fatales build bookcases in their spare time, these things, too, are not just good but great. They bring us, I believe, wonderful news: news that gendered options can continue to explode, that the chefs in the kitchen of gender are creating new and imaginative specials every day. That we, all of us, are the chefs. Hi. I have a whisk.

Everyone should read this book; I really like it. I actually much preferred it to Butch is a Noun.
Holy crap I need to read this book STAT.

Be still my heart! This is wonderful.
This post pretty much came about because I was asked if I had resources for Muslims who were discovering or newly coming to terms with their sexuality. I didn’t, and the poor advice I had to offer was … poor. So, I pulled up a few of the blogs I followed that are targeted…
I clapped like a wee small child when I saw this.
Fantastic resource list for queer Muslims! Clicky clicky!
Queer Muslim darlings! The Safra Project has the first 42 pages of "Homosexuality In Islam" available on their site!
…along with a bunch of other fantastic stuff, but I’ve been saving up for Kugle’s book for a while, so I squee’d a great deal over that one.

media that could be improved with more lesbians
- all of it
- no every single show
- every movie
- every book
- every video game
- every single thing would be so much better if there were lesbians everywhere
I wrote a math-logic equation for this once, but have since lost it. The Lesbian Addition Theorem. I should write a dissertation.
[Coming out] didn’t seem quite so straightforward to me. Perhaps it was because I am really proud of who I am, and I feel like I am a fully happy person, that I was able to look at the other ways of living my life. I know that if I had a choice to be straight, I wouldn’t choose it. Even if I don’t tell certain members of my extended family about my sexuality, I don’t view myself as in the closet, in a dark place that I must escape from. Far from it, this ‘closet’ is full of precious things, like things you could never afford to buy! It’s my treasure chest. The way I see it, rather than me needing to move out of the closet, to make my sexuality public to everyone, including my parents, instead I get to choose who open the door to, and who to invite to ‘come in’ to my life. The different metaphor took away the pressure I had been feeling. I no longer feel a pressure to ‘come out’ to my entire family, and instead I have many precious people who I have invited to ‘come in’ to my life. I am hoping that other people in my situation don’t feel the pressure of these ‘games of truth’ to make a public move that doesn’t fit for them. I like the fact that I choose people to ‘come in’ to my life. Importantly, I choose people who I think are valuable to support me and share things that are important to me.
I was pleasantly surprised by a couple of these.
