So I’ve now got 3 posts of mine that have broken 10,000 notes, 2 of which are photosets of Alan Cumming (the third is a photoset of drag queens) and I feel like I’ve found the key to success and internet fame?
Side note- this is probably my favorite part of these posts going viral (this is just a small cross section of hundreds of similar comments):
Do you mind if I ask where you got that last wig from? It’s so pretty!
My favorite wig store, ebay.com!
Here are a few places selling it right now:    (note: it comes with the curls really tightly wound which makes it look cheaper, so you need to spend some time brushing it out when you first get it)
I want to note that the way the sex binary looks like it’s present throughout the animal world is that white scientists have a terrible habit of labeling everything “male” or “female” even when it makes no sense.
Like, by any reasonable metric, bees have three sexes: drone, queen, and worker. Workers are only labelled female because someone couldn’t abide the idea of something not being either one or the other.
And before someone calls “genetics” there are many species where both sexes have the exact same genetics, and even many where individuals can change reproductive capacity at will, and scientists suddenly have no problem calling the ones who grow eggs “female” even though they were “male” two weeks ago.
Some species of mammals reproduce asexually. They have only one sex. It is still called “female” because it makes babies even though one might reasonably ask why even make the distinction when every single individual makes babies just the same.
"selfie culture" seems so tame by comparison when you realize that not only did old timey rich people spend a fortune commissioning artists to paint flattering images of them, they spent many hours sitting for these portraits
who’s the me generation now
#art museums are actually just full of renaissance selfies this post just changed my life
Not to mention that in addition to having themselves painted as younger and more attractive than they actually were, they also often made sure all of their most expensive possessions and best status symbols were in the picture with them!
60% of straight women say they would never date a bisexual. 50% of straight men say they would never date a bisexual. 40% of gay men and lesbians say they would never date a bisexual. Bisexuals are obviously just greedy. They’re just bisexual so they can sleep with fewer people and lose opportunities for relationships based solely on their sexual orientation.
It has been decided that Halloween season officially begins on September 1 and lasts until 11:59 p.m., October 31. There is far too much to see, do, taste, touch, listen to, scare, hide and/or run from to contain within the 31 available days in October.
Thank you for your cooperation.

facebook has been suspending accounts of people who aren’t using their legal names on their profiles, without warning, and demanding government issued ID before releasing the account back to them
so far the media i’ve seen cover this has focused exclusively on drag queens who have been targeted (source 1, 2) but i highly doubt they are the only group affected. it’s possible that they’re the first people facebook is going after - but it’s also possible (dare i say likely) that they’re the only people who are able to speak up about it. after all, most people who aren’t using their legal names on fb are probably trans and/or trying to avoid abusers or stalkers. i know that’s the case for me and every single person i know who doesn’t use their legal name. a lot of people might be forcibly outed or otherwise put at risk because of this, myself included.
there is a petition you can sign. in the meantime i know i’ll be backing up any info/pictures i need off my account in case it gets suspended next, and i suggest everyone that this applies to does the same.
i’m going to reiterate what i said yesterday. being a man or identifying with masculinity does not make you inherently bad. it means that you will be afforded structural benefits the rest of us lack. it means that others will present you with countless opportunities to engage in misogyny. it means some of us will never trust you or be comfortable around you because of past experiences with other men, regardless of whether you think that’s fair or not. it means you need to listen to us when we speak of the ways you hurt us, and understand when you speak to us that society is far, far more receptive to your voice.
it does not make you inherently evil, it means society indulges you with the capacity to be evil and get away with it because it is evil done in socially-sanctioned methods by the patriarchy.
