Can we talk for a minute about Lauren Morelli (Orange is the New Black writer) coming out as gay and leaving her husband for Samira Wiley (Poussey)? Can we talk about bisexual erasure both in this situation and in Orange is the New Black? This show has tackled so many feminist/gender/race issues yet has completely ignored such an important identity, and I’m guessing this is due to Morelli’s failure to acknowledge bisexuality as a legitimate sexual orientation. 

I completely agree and in all the sites and posts I’ve seen they say she was straight now she’s a lesbian, which I’m sick of hearing as a bisexual myself, totally disregarding the possibility she may be bisexual or pansexual or just falling on the queer spectrum. I was also so excited for OITNB to have bisexual/pansexual characters as they succeeded in those other issues but still failed to represent a fairly common sexual orientation.

She literally wrote an essay explaining that she’s a lesbian and she isn’t an OITNB character, she is a real human being.

Accepting rebuke, he relapsed into silence, while she studied his half-averted face. Considered generally, as a facade, it was by this time tolerably familiar to her, but now she saw details, magnified as it were by some glass in her own mind. The flat setting and fine scroll-work of the ear, and the height of the skull above it. The glitter of close-cropped hair where the neck-muscles lifted to meet the head. A minute sickle-shaped scar on the left temple. The faint laughter-lines at the corner of the eye and the droop of the lid at its outer end. The gleam of gold down on the cheekbone. The wide spring of the nostril. An almost imperceptible beading of sweat on the upper lip and a tiny muscle that twitched the sensitive corner of the mouth, the slight sun-reddening of the fair skin and its sudden whiteness below the base of the throat The little hollow above the points of the collarbone.
He looked up; and she was instantly scarlet, as though she had been dipped in boiling water. Through the confusion of her darkened eyes and drumming ears some enormous bulk seemed to stoop over her. Then the mist cleared. His eyes were riveted upon the manuscript again, but he breathed as though he had been running.

Never forget


Persons with any weight of character carry, like planets, their atmospheres along with them in their orbits.
Thomas Hardy, The Return of the Native


And you wait, you wait for that one thing
that will infinitely enlarge your life;
the gigantic, the stupendous,
the awakening of stones,
depths turned round toward you.

-Rilke, “Memory,” trans. by Edward Snow



one time i took a picture of a tiger at the zoo and the tiger smiled for the picture it was very great and the best picture i’ve ever taken
