bicurious? yes, i am bi and very curious. when were balloons invented? how do they make playing cards? why do cats do the thing when you dangle strings in front of them? i have so many questions
Why don’t cats like rain, at all? What are elbows for? Where do rivers go? Why am I one of the only people alive who will get this because almost literally no one remembers the movie I’m referencing?
the fact that there have no leaked nudes in my dashboard proves that i’m following the right people
I kept seeing people talk about non-consensual nude photography in a general sense all day, and it wasn’t until late this evening that I finally saw someone explain what happened. I have yet to see anyone share a nude, and I would honestly be completely shocked if anyone I follow did.
petition to ban “i kissed a girl” from all queer girl fanmixes 2k14
I assume you mean the Katy Perry monstrosity, so I’d like to amend your petition to suggest, rather than a simple ban, replacing it with Jill Sobule’s excellent song of same name but completely different message.
First Mountain Goats song I ever heard, and still my favorite. Thanks for putting it on a mixtape for me, mitchclem. Thanks for sending me lots of mp3s when I said the discography was too daunting, planetfool.
so hey fun fact for anyone who wants queer history trivia: the first disco in Seattle was opened in 1973 and was a gay bar called “shelly’s leg” and it was named after a dancer named shelly who lost her leg in a confetti cannon accident and used the insurance/lawsuit settlement money to open a gay disco.
a) This is such a fantastic story that I wouldn’t care if it were made up, except that
It wasn’t a confetti cannon, it was a real cannon. It was in a parade, though, so there was probably confetti around? Anyway, she didn’t just lose her leg: the blast took out a good part of her pelvis as well, and reportedly she was in a coma for close to a year.
Maybe the best thing about this story is that there was a huge sign outside declaring it as a gay bar, which is now in the permanent collection at the Museum of History and Industry. And this was in 1973.
