My dad was telling me about these girls at his old college who invented a nail polish that paints on clear, and if you stir your drink with your finger with the nail polish on, it will react with the “Date Rape” drug and turn red.
Dude. It’s genius.
I saw this before and didn’t reblog it because it didn’t have anything to say how but now that there is a link saying how I wil reblog it.
Authors of queer fiction, we need to have a talk. Some of you seem to think that you’re writing realistic contemporary fiction, but I’m here to tell you that many of you are actually writing fantasy.
See, the problem is setting. You all seem to set your fiction in a world a lot like our own world, but with one key subtle difference: the setting is a magical land where the word ‘bisexual’ doesn’t exist.
It’s not merely that characters do not call themselves bi. In this wacky world, NO ONE ever thinks, says, or implies the world bisexual. The concept just doesn’t exist. I’m not even talking about writing bisexual characters or even writing bisexual cliches. I’m talking about a level of bi invisibility that is both comprehensive and pervasive.
The absence of the word is particularly conspicuous in stories where characters realize they like both men and women (and it’s always men and women in these particular stories — not non-binary and/or other people under the transgender umbrella). No one ever raises the possibility of bisexuality, it’s just “gay now!” And no one acts like this glaring omission of one of the letters in the alphabet soup in queer fiction of all places is strange in the slightest. Bisexuality just does not exist at all. It’s completely absent from every dictionary in that world.
That world is not our world.
If you want to write a story that takes place in our real world, remember that bisexuality exists. The word bisexual exists and ignoring it makes your story look foolish. Remember that we are the most populous letter in the LGBT+ alphabet soup. To do otherwise is profoundly biphobic and contributes to bisexual erasure. Make the word bisexual a part of your real world.
Otherwise your story is taking place in a fantasy land that might as well be full of elves and unicorns.

so my boyfriend and I tried roleplaying the other day and we did the whole “professor and bad student who needs to pass” thing, only he wanted to be the professor, so I had to be the horny and failing student. I’m the valedictorian of my senior class of 400 and I have a horrible phobia of flunking, so when he whispered “you’re failing my class, you naughty girl” in my ear, I started crying and we had to stop
We each need to find our own inspiration, Kiki. Sometimes it’s not easy.
What a great message. I wish all characters were this nice. Does anyone know what this is from?
concepts that i cannot for the life of me understand:
- sub rose
- dom dave
imagine dave trying to dom rose and shes trying to sub but she just ends up laughing because hes one of those tumblr doms that are like “you. here. now.” in a poorly fitting dress shirt and then she doms the hell out of him
"yeah you like it when i hit you, dont you, because youve been a bad girl"
"I sure have. Last night, I erased your recording of Gossip Girl on the Tivo. Punish me rough, Daddy."
"ok hold on you arent serious are you because that is not sexy at all thats just fucking rude"
I look like an extremely professional fashionable woman in an Abaya. It probably took me AGES to look this professional right?
WRONG. I’m actually wearing my onesie underneath it and you will NEVER KNOW MWAHAHAHA
Wanna know another secret? Even though i LOOK like I’m paying attention to whatever nonsense you are saying…..
