Here I am with my second submission to share an afternoon of self love. For me it’s the simple pleasures to have an apartment alone on a day off to embrace myself laying about without restriction. A creature of the night by habit from my work hours, I don’t enjoy often the hours of daylight like most. To give myself some love I picked up a record from The Walker Brothers from a private collector today, and here I sit with my cigarette now listening to “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore” with great pleasure as I take a moment to bask in the light pouring through my windows.
Good music, sunshine, a space to yourself - the definition of self love. It is a pleasure having you back in the line up. I hope your afternoon is immensely pleasing.
Great song choice.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.
Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.
Scarleteen is invaluable.
And Scarleteen needs your help.
During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.
This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support.
This is devastating.
If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.
Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.
And whether or not you’re able to donate at this time, please signal boost this and spread the word. Scarleteen does incredible, very necessary work, and they need our help.
This place does amazing, important work, and they are well worth supporting. Sex ed in this country is a sick joke, and sites like this are having to take up the slack, run on donations from people like us who actually want the next generation to have happy, fulfilling, safe lives full of as much or as little sex as they want.
I just made a donation, and you should too! Help support an org providing comprehensive, inclusive sex, gender, and health information to youth.
“Circa 1890, this is a gorgeous floral tiara, with old brilliant and rose-cut diamonds adorning the branches and leaves, and pear-shaped pearls forming the buds. It’s gold, and also has a detachable setting that can convert the piece to a brooch.”
Please reblog if you are a girl and have ever been made to feel ashamed of one or more of these things (wanting to prove a point to some asshole):
-your clothing choice
-your amount of make up
-not having sex
-having your period
-not appreciating catcalls
