excerpts from my autobiography

my mother raised me to be retrospective.

but this blog is about periods and cats.

My best button design so far, I think.

Asker dragonseidr Asks:
I'm watching Sailor Moon for the first time and at this point (sailor moon s) the only one of the inner senshi I can really see as straight is Minako, but even then, I don't know. They seem like a bunch of bi girls, but maybe that's just wishful thinking. How do you see them?

They’re all queer. Minako may come off as straight in the anime, but in the manga she is queer as fuck. Here’s how I see them.

Usagi- bi (I was gonna say pan, but actually I do think she finds different things attractive in men, women and inbetween) and potentially eventually polyamorous

Rei- open homoromantic asexual in the manga and PGSM and probably Crystal, closeted (but will eventually come out) lesbian in the 90s anime

Ami- biromantic ace (or maybe just bi- hard to say without more evidence)

Mako- bi- tends to favor boys, but when she crushes on a girl, she crushes hard (see: Ami and Haruka)

Minako- pansexual

Haruka and Michiru- lesbian space princesses

Setsuna- bi- equal level crush on Serenity and Endymion

Hotaru- lesbian

Chibiusa- bi like mama

Why do you think that they are ALL queer…?

How is Usagi bi? She isn’t in love with Haruka or Seiya (and even doesn’t know that Seiya is a girl until pretty late in the 90’s anime).
Rei has something close to a relationship with a man in the old anime (not saying anything about the other stuff…).
How do you get Ami’s vibes…? From where…? And how is she romnatically connected to Makoto?
Also I don’t think that admiring a woman (what you count as a “crush”) determines one sexuality (Makoto’s admiration for Haruka).
Why is Minako pansexual? (In the manga she has something for Rei, in the old anime she’s into boys - or do you consider her crush on Yaten as evidence?)
Setsuna has a crush on Endymion - that one’s true. But she just respects her queen… That doesn’t count as a crush.
Why is Hotaru a lesbian? Because she is close to Chibiusa…? Is that also the reason why you count Chibiusa as bisexual? Being close to a person also doesn’t determine your sexuality…


I don’t think that making people more queer than they are is better than making queer people heterosexual…

the better question is, why the fuck do you care about my headcanons? Do not follow my blog if you’re going to bother me with your heteronormative bullshit.

and you’re right, Usagi is so completely straight, there is no evidence she’s bi.

She completely platonically gets off on lingerie clad friends groping her breast

image

Minako is doing some really heteorsexual boob groping in her most heterosexual outfit too. 

True, Usagi is known for going on buses specifically to check out hot girls, then getting hearts in her eyes and following them off the bus bc in her words “she’s so pretty”

image

How on earth could anyone read that as queer?

image

Note the official translation had her saying “I’ll forgive anything if it’s a pretty girl” or “I’ll do anything a pretty girl tells me to” something that people would be JUST SILLY to think is a sign Usagi is attracted to pretty girls.

And there was totally never the slightest sign she was attracted to Haruka

image

how heterosexually her heart pounds and she swoons slightly as she prepares for haruka to kiss her, offering no resistance.

image

Usagi completely heterosexually had a dream about Haruka kissing her after it happened and woke up flushed and feeling like she’d cheated on Mamoru, which I’m not sure why she’d think that. considering how straight she is.

image

In the anime, she was stalked Haruka for an entire episode and asked if she had a girlfriend in a heterosexual way, was head over heels about the idea of dancing with her in a heterosexual way, and the other girls swooned and were jealous of usagi for dancing with her in a heterosexual way.

And you’re right! Rei had a guy who has a crush on her in the anime! It’s true that she said outright she didn’t have any feelings for him and simply admired his devotion to her in her R episode with Koan, but we all know women aren’t allowed to decide whether they want to be in a relationship with a guy who likes him. If a guy likes them, they are OBLIGATED to return their feelings! And Rei definitely wasn’t know to have really gay moments with Usagi.

image

and it’s not like Usagi ever teased her about possibly being gay, or that she tried to hide an interest in attractive women.

image

I’m such a silly, where do I get this stuff.

And she comes off as so hetero in the manga. Definitely nothing ever implied there.

image

nooooope. Nothing implied with Minako either (ps i did say Minako might come off as straight in the anime- however, since her anime character wasn’t as developed, i tend to fill in gaps with her manga and pgsm characterization.)

definitely they weren’t super queer in PGSM or anything either.

image

image

image

(don’t think being “they type who doesn’t like boys” means Rei isn’t straight. It’s a new type of straightness we haven’t identified but we’re working hard)

And yeah, that Makoto and her platonic fascination with Ami’s butt, that she doesn’t take her eyes off for a full minute

image

And how could I read Chibiusa and Hotaru’s friendship as anything but platonic? I mean, Hotaru totally platonically fondling Chibiusa’s naked chest.

image

totally platonically gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes. while naked. Foreheads touching.image

this completely platonic scene

image

Hotaru may have never shown any interest in boys, but you’re right, i should read her as straight regardless.

how could anyone think that was gay, with that phrasing. Especially since Mamoru watches on and describes it as “giving his daughter away as a bride”. Platonically.

I’m so sorry that I, a silly, stupid queer woman, dared try to read any of these characters as queer. Everyone is straight until proven otherwise, you’re right. You’ve shown me the way with your hetero wisdom.

(guess what? Even if this wasn’t all true? It wouldn’t fucking matter. I can read characters however I want, and no one needs “evidence” they are not straight. Straight should not be the fucking default, and queer people can look for representation and read relationships as romantic or platonic. You can bet if they were het, none of these relationships would be read as platonic. And there is a much evidence for a crush on Serenity for Pluto as there is for Endymion- neither are outright confirmed in the text of the manga, just “admiration”. Naoko says Setsuna has “adulterous” feelings which could refer to BOTH OF THEM (I doubt that’s what she MEANT, but she didn’t say anything concrete, so guess what? I can interpret it as I want). So get the hell out of here with your assumptions).

(Also I read Haruka as genderqueer in the manga. I hope that makes you REALLY upset).

i don’t even like sailor moon, but this vicious smackdown is one of the most beautiful things i’ve ever seen.

still mad about that person who said I shouldn’t say y’all because y’all is the best and y’all can suck it if you disagreeeee.

sent my first ever wedding vendor inquiry e-mail soooo.

If you want to help secure the rights of women all over the world go here.
If you want to help people from north korea go here.
If you want to help stop child labor go here
If you want to help people escape from their current situation go here
If you want to help refugees reunite with their families go here

If you want to permanently help the people who are still living in inhumane conditions all over the globe, that grow up experiencing war, violence and discrimination, be political! Go vote, write articles, educate every single person you meet, never shut your mouth, make people aware of the fact that we are still far away from global equality, freedom and peace.

I am an indecisive person with an indecisive friend and we have now sent a combined total of 30 text messages over the course of three days to decide when and where in the mall we should meet today.

Apparently I am twelve and have never had my period before because I just bled through a super tampon and onto my dress while out in public.

nothing-is-promised:

suarezalex:

okay seriously if you’re in a relationship or even a friendship and you find yourself spending more time crying out of sadness or arguing with them, leave them. i don’t care if they’re a modern day aphrodite/adonis or a gift bestowed upon you by the gods. toxic people are dangerous and i highly advise cutting them out of your life and finding someone who makes you laugh until you snort your drink out your nose instead.

Everything Beyonce does is careful and thought out. Her entire image is perfection crafted from planning ahead. She does not ‘wing it’ or throw things into her performances and public appearances ‘just because’.

What she did at this award show was amazing, especially because of how intentional and thought out it clearly was.

Feminism is a scary word for a lot of people. Many women are afraid of calling themselves feminist because they think it implies anger, hatred of men, or a rejection of traditional femininity. 

Beyonce presented everyone watching with two distinct images of what many viewers viewed as two very different women. There is the strong, independent FEMINIST. She is the woman who likes being in control and being in the spotlight. Then there is the WIFE and MOTHER. She is soft, sweet, smiling at the husband and child you can tell she loves and values so much.

For every girl watching who was afraid to be a feminist, afraid to be powerful, because of what she thought she would lose, this is an incredible message. You can be all the things you want to be. You can be both. Feminists can have amazing happy, full lives full of both traditional and modern womanhood. 

Feminism means gender should not be a source of persecution or a restriction of your choices. Feminism mean the type of person you should be is based on what you value, not what outside forces pressure you to value because of your gender or biological sex. Shout at the top of your lungs that you are a feminist and proud. Then go and be the exact person that you want to be.
