Is it just me or are her eyes super wonky in this shot?

  • If something passes the Bechdel Test: wow great okay
  • If something does NOT pass the Bechdel Test: don't freak out - the test is inherently flawed and only takes into consideration a very select and narrow group of variables
  • If something passes the Sexy Lamp Test: wow great okay
  • If something does not pass the Sexy Lamp Test: freak out because that means that the story still would have made sense if that particular female character had been replaced by a sexy lamp and that's hella fuckin' sad

Twenty-five years and three days later, reality takes a tip from fiction and charts “Weird Al” Yankovic’s new album Mandatory Fun at number one, with over 100,000 sales during it’s first week. In his 31 year long career, with 14 studio albums to his name, this is the first time he’s hit the top- and the first comedy album by ANY artist to hit #1 since 1960! Congratulations, Al! image

YOU GUYS TURN ON THE SUBTITLES

AHH I NEED A MINUTE

I KNEW IT

"MY LOVE, ANNA." HOLY SHIT. HOLY FUCK. IS IT ACTUALLY A LOVE STORY? IS THIS MOVIE ACTUALLY A QUEER LOVE STORY?!

Keep an eye out on theater listings! It’s Studio Ghibli which means it’s very likely to have an American theater release!

I’m kinda sad that the “leftphobia” incident fizzled out so quickly, I was really looking forward to using this picture more:

But he’s holding up his right fist

  • 8 am: I need to do the thing after work
  • 6 pm: Oh yeah I need to do the thing. I'm so tired though.
  • 8 pm: I should probably do the thing, but I need to relax
  • 10 pm: Fuck it, I can't do the thing, do it tomorrow

the word ‘bisexuality’ is a taboo

it isn’t said on tv. orange is the new black, for example, features a bisexual protagonist who points out the biphobia at one point in assuming she can’t be attracted to multiple genders, but no one Ever says the word and she is ignored and referred to as a straight girl or a lesbian depending on the situation

other bisexual characters later turn out to have been Really Monosexual All Along. or are attractive, promiscuous women with commitment issues

this isn’t a coincidence.

people who are attracted to multiple genders, when asked about it, often describe themselves as “Fluid”. “I’d rather not label it.” “I don’t need to define it.” “It’s just whatever.” as if people are afraid of even implying the b word

this isn’t a coincidence.

the word ‘bisexual’ gets you different reactions in different places. straight people think you’re either faking for attention or a deviant. straight men are afraid of bi men and think bi women are just particularly promiscuous straight girls who want to have threesomes with them

gay men accuse bi men of being in the closet. lesbians accuse bi women of being straight girls going through a phase. and the ones who don’t do either of these things still often assume bisexuals are promiscuous, indecisive, and can’t settle down.

the theme throughout is that bisexually is illegitimate, deceptive, and always a front for something else.

this isn’t a coincidence

people are constantly encouraged to ‘settle down’, to ‘just pick one’, to ‘not be greedy’. abandon bisexuality. you’re really gay. you’re really straight. you’re too young. how can you know you’re bisexual at 16? 18? 20? 25?

this isn’t a coincidence

the word ‘bisexuality’ is constantly, persistently manipulated, by people who aren’t bisexual at all. the meaning twisted on shallow rationale. accused of being transphobic, or of being exclusionary. this has been happening for over 20 years now despite the existence of outspoken trans and/or non-binary bisexuals. whatever they can do to make you not say the word. pick a different one.

this isn’t a coincidence

bisexual people - whether implied or literally, deliberately saying they are bisexual using the word - are constantly rewritten as gay or as straight. gay icon. he was never interested in men. bi actor comes out? headlines say ‘came out as gay’, or articles outright ignore it

it’s never, ever a coincidence. bi erasure is a constant, ongoing thing.
