Hello! I'm Laurel.
I made an internet famous coming out cake here:
I write for the LGBT blog gaythestraightaway.com
i feel so bad for bisexuals cause i can just imagine a bi guy telling a girl hes bi and her being like “ok so youre actually gay then..” or a bi girl telling a lesbian and her being like “so youre experimenting then..” n thats just really shitty like you dont deserve to have your identity taken away from you so easily

- there is nothing wrong with going through phases while you try and figure out who you are
- there is nothing wrong with being confused about who you are. at any point in your life
- there is nothing wrong with saying you were x identity a year ago and today saying you are something else.
it does not mean you lied
it does not mean you were doing it to be trendy
it means you changed
thats what people do over time: they change
and that’s ok
If milkshakes bring boys to the yard, what brings girls? Smoothies? What brings non-binary cuties? Frappucinos? I need to know.
what is your opinion on virginity?
it’s sexist and heteronormative, it commodifies sex and women, contributes to rape culture, polices women’s sexuality, erases queer, transgendered and intersex people, conflates sexuality with morality and honor (negatively so for women), emphasizes gendered power dynamics, implies possession (men ‘take’ and women ‘lose’) which again, contributes to sexism and rape culture, romanticizes submissiveness and chaste behavior which makes it difficult for women to escape gender roles, reinforces thousands of years of patriarchy and continues the subjugation and oppression women face, has been idolized in all the wrong ways, historically has oppressed female sexuality (and still does), and so many other vile things. it is basically a rabid indictment of masculinity and patriarchy and needs to be destroyed
"so she’s gay now?"
yeah she turned it all the paperwork last week and her acceptance letter came this morning, it was all pretty sudden
THIS IS FOR REAL: One Burger King restaurant in San Francisco is selling the “Proud Whopper” through the week of SF Pride. It’s exactly the same as a regular Whopper, price and all, except it comes in a rainbow-tastic Pride wrapper that reads “We Are All The Same Inside” when you unwrap it. All proceeds are donated to a foundation providing scholarships to LGBT students. Get thee to 1200 Market Street! (via USA Today)
