places smart enough to not do this whole daylight saving time business in orange. please note: arizona, sonora, and saskatchewan have got this figured out. we only observed DST one year (1967) and that was on accident because our legislature forgot to turn in some paperwork. (no, seriously. that’s how it happened.)
literally, daylight savings time is the only issue on which arizona has always been right.
Ooh I had no idea daylight saving was a contentious issue! On dark winter UK days it seems like a very good idea to get a bit more light in the afternoon and even so it’s pretty much dark by 4pm, but apparently Scottish farmers would rather have that light in the mornings so there are occasional rumblings about moving the UK on to the same time as the rest of Europe. Here in Malaga I was surprised how late it gets light in the summer - in the UK it’s full daylight by 4am (thank you Children 1 and 2 for being sleepless babies so that I could experience every moment of that daylight). I vaguely assumed tropical countries with not much seasonal variation in daylight didn’t bother with it - why don’t you/Arizona like it?
It’s to do with the geography thing you mentioned. Arizona (and really the rest of the area) is super hot and desert-y, so if they went on daylight savings they’d have daytime sunlight past ten. But really, most of the US basically just hates Daylight Savings, even my area, which is dark and rainy with fairly short days ten months out of the year. We’re just super stubborn and fussy and can’t handle our sleep schedule’s being disrupted, is all.
I want more queer friendship stories. Not just stories where the only two queer people find each other and fall in unhealthy codependent love in a sea of cishets. Give me whole communities of queer people. Give me queer best friends gushing to each other about their silly crushes. Give me younger queers going to older queers for advice and guidance, without getting creeped on. Give me queer friends cuddling and watching tv together, or baking cookies together, or a big group of diverse queer people fighting about where to go out to eat because everyone has a different favorite place, but ultimately they decide to go to everyone’s favorite place at least once and just flip a coin or something to decide who’s turn it is to pick. Give me queer friends from different cultures bonding over sharing their cultural differences. Give me queer people starting college or moving for a new job and learning how to be a part of a new community full of other queer people.
Romance is nice and all, and queer romance needs more representation. But friendship is every bit as important, and more important to some people. I don’t want to hear stories where I have to hope I find that one other queer person to be happy with and then shut out the rest of the world. I want community.
Me Am What Me Am—The Cookie Monster
Listen to this but interpret it as bisexuals defending their positions of liking more than one gender because yes.
I’m dying, Sesame Street has been having to do official media releases about this for years, it’s a fantastic metaphor for having to come out multiple times as a bisexual and the media panic over it.
In a Season 43 episode, Cookie Monster is offered vegetables to eat while waiting for a batch of cookies to finish baking. At every instance, Mario Lopez, appearing as a news reporter, claims that Cookie has become the Veggie Monster. Cookie sings “Me Am What Me Am" to explain that he is still Cookie Monster, even though he does love to occasionally eat vegetables. However, after Cookie eats part of the Sesame Street lamppost, Lopez comes back to report that Cookie is now "The Lamppost Monster."
I can’t breathe…
YESSSSSS the backstory. It’s all become so clear.
Also people have tagged it as “bisexual anthem” and so that’s it. I’m done. I’ve completed my mission in life. I can now transcend physical existence and rise to the halls of Bihalla to live an eternal life of free of biphobia and hatred among my fellow bi people.
people who love springtime must not have seasonal allergies

oh no I’ve begun sketching out characters for that dumb ‘undergrad steals identity of professor and goes on archaeology adventure’ idea I had
this video is entitled “tumblr feminists” and i prepared myself to get angry before watching it but damn if it isn’t spot on
"What they are really saying is that they hate women. They hate women with opinions who are honest and angry."
I thought this was gonna be cissexist and then it wasnt
People who believe money can’t buy happiness have obviously never been in debt
i hate this line its literally just “shut up poor people”
like maybe money doesnt buy happiness per se but you know being able to go out sometimes and have a life does, being able to buy your family nice presents for christmas does, knowing you can pay your bills does …
