    Girls can wear jeans and cut their hair short, wear shirts and boots. ‘Cause it’s OK to be a boy. But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading. ‘Cause you think that being a girl is degrading. But secretly, you’d love to know what it’s like… Wouldn’t you? What it feels like for a girl.

    — Charlotte Gainsbourg

    A company in Australia by the name of HommeMystere started making lingerie for men in April of 2013. In the beginning, they received a lot of negative publicity, mostly from women fearing their boyfriends or husbands would start wearing lingerie. So much for femininism… Now, they have consistently been making a small fortune and have become quite popular in the fashion capitals of the world. So far:

    • They have made two appearances at the International Lingerie Show in Las Vegas.
    • They have gone public in the United States, France, Sweden, and Japan.
    • They have sold out of four lines of their clothing.
    • And they have reached one million veiws on their YouTube channel.

    What is more, because they do not focus on the gay community, they haven’t put any barriers up against straight men who happen to make up the majority of their orders. If that is not success, I do not know what is. Cheers, HommeMystere.

  2. Coming from a state champion baker:


    If y’all use a decent box mix and use melted butter instead of vegetable oil, an extra egg, and milk instead of water, no one can tell the difference. I sure as hell can’t. 

    Also, if you add a little almond extract to vanilla cake, or a little coffee to chocolate cake, it sends it through the roof. 

    This concludes me attempting to be helpful.

    A university president just gave up a lot of his salary to raise his school’s minimum wage

    In some pretty awesome and uplifting news, Kentucky State University’s interim president Raymond Burse has given up more than $90,000 of his nearly $350,000 salary to help raise university workers’ minimum wage to $10.25 an hour.

    the first female chinese immigrant to america was a sixteen-year-old girl who was part of a cultural exhibit where she sat in a life-size diorama and people watched her eat with chopsticks while wearing silk clothes and that’s really all you need to know about the commodification of chinese women

    Afong Moy.  Her name was Afong Moy.  Say the names of people who should be remembered.

    Daily Bisexual Fact:  

    Bisexuals, those most mythical and ethereal of creatures, must all embark on epic quests in order to escape the Eternal Closet of Despair,  On these quests, they will constantly do battle with…

    The Dark Lord of Heteronormativity. 


    Powers of the bisexual: Invisibility, charm, and wit.

    Weaknesses of the bisexual:  Mislabeling, prone to exclusion, and sponge cake (no bisexual can resist it).

    I was so onboard with this movie, up until this point.  I’m not sure how else bi viewers were supposed to take this reaction from his parents other than mocking the existence of bisexuality and enforcing the idea of monosexuality - homosexual or heterosexual, and anything in between isn’t a “real” possibility. 

    Either that or they’re stereotyping their son as a gay man and rejecting another stereotype of a bisexual man, though what that stereotype is isn’t clear.  Considering many gay men’s attitudes towards bisexuality, I read this as the former.  

    From a film about respecting minorities who are largely stereotyped, this was a nasty surprise.  I wasn’t expecting this sort of blatant prejudice in a film all about acceptance.  But there you have it, folks; bisexuals experience prejudice from not just heterosexuals, but the gay communities as well, as the writer of this film was a gay man.

    And this hurts especially because so many bi people actually do get responses like that from our parents, who either completely dismiss or actively argue with us about what we went through a very long and painful process just to be able to tell them.

    Just to get this sort of response.

    So yeah, thank you so much for kicking us while we’re down.
