spoken words fade

What does the silent one have to say? Nothing.
What does he have to offer? The world.

self-respect is my respect for myself

i could as well suck 3 thousand dicks and still respect myself so shut the fuck up

Hell I would respect u for sucking 3 thousand dicks

Anxiety is wanting to ask your partner a million questions as to why they’re with you, why they say they care about you, and so on.

Depression is not thinking you’re worth enough to even ask those questions, let alone be with them.

and having both of them is the definition of hell

I may not be a genius, but I’m smart enough to figure that out.

Talking about t.A.T.u.


I don’t really want to talk about the Olympics, but I think I need to because I am a squid of rage right now.   

I am sick to death of media coverage of t.A.T.u. performing at the Olympics that demeans these two and erases the years of abuse that went into that ‘fake-lesbian’ act. Yeah, I’m looking at you Towleroad and  especially you,AfterEllen.  I expect as much from mainstream media but queer media, you are on my shit list.   

For those who don’t know, t.A.T.u. was a musical duo in the early 2000’s marketed by their creepy manager Ivan Shapavalov (who was pushing 40 at the time) as lesbians.  They were scripted by him to say explicit sexual things during interviews. This started when they were 14 years old.  

When they came to America, both of their English language skills (especially Julia’s) were very limited.  No one is sure if they even knew what they were saying.

This same manager got Julia pregnant at 16 and to keep her performing, forced her into having an abortion.   He used sex and drugs to keep them under his thumb until about 2008.    

 Lena admitted she was straight but a staunch supporter of LGBT rights and Julia came out as bisexual.  They both participated in Moscow Pride. Were they a couple ever? No. But one is queer.  Regardless of if they were a couple or not, for a generation of lesbian and bisexual women, they could turn on MTV back when it played music videos and see two women saying “I love you” while trying to escape homophobic persecution.    That is a narrative we almost never see in mainstream music today, a decade later.   

But I don’t see people celebrating t.A.T.u.’s cultural legacy despite being survivors of abuse.   I see people enjoying a hit of holier-than-thou and calling them fake-lesbians.  

It’s reasonable to ask if t.A.T.u. performing at the Olympics is collaboration or a chance for Russians to see a queer woman and an ally on stage.   We can debate if they should have done the gig.   We can discuss why several of Julia’s queerer songs have been removed from itunes or how her biography online has repeatedly been edited to remove these facts about her life.   We can talk about how their abuse is similar to the high rates of abuse, depression, and suicide for bisexual people (higher than that of gay, lesbian, or straight folks).    

But if your response to t.A.T.u.  is to be angry at them for imitating or appropriating lesbianism and not to be angry at the way they were abused and manipulated, then you are a terrible fucking person.  You’re the one setting queer rights back, not a pair of emotionally, physically, and sexually abused teenage girls.

During dinner my family was talking, and my brother brought up the fact that a UK school recently got in trouble for segregating the girls and boys in a school, and making all the girls sit in the back of the class. My Dad looks my brother in the eye and says “Well that makes sense-” and at this…


i don’t care if a character is immortal i want to know their age. their exact age. i want to know how many centuries they’ve been around. if they died before they became immortal i want to know how old they were then. don’t give me that “age: immortal” shit. do not go there
