I use my eyeliner like a magic 8 ball.  Every morning I look in the mirror and yell reverently, “Ohhhh Kat Von D Tattoo Liner! Will today be a good day?”  If I fuck up and get liner all over my face I know the day’s going to suck, and if I nail my cat eye in one try I know I’m going to walk on rainbows and kiss hot babes from dawn til dusk.  It’s a good system.

After avoiding Tumblr for a while, I’m scrolling through all these amazing beautiful powerful fucking incandescent fat-positive, queer, feminist, anti-racist oasis posts and I already feel so much more confident and in love with the world.  I’m sorry, radical Tumblr, I’ll never leave you again. <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Femme Anthem

Face it.

My eyebrows are too perfect. Their high arches intimidate you. I created them.

Listen to me stutter. Try not to smile. Take me seriously. I have carved my own cheekbones with dark powder. I have highlighted where I am taught to highlight. I am lit where the sun naturally hits me. My chipped tooth cuts my lower lip. See how you want to suck the welling blood.

My laugh makes you think of your genitals. It makes you think of riding a bike and not knowing where to rest your genitals.

You can see my nipples through my dress. You can see that my nipples are pierced. You can see that I could handle childbirth. You ask me for a smile. I smile. You are disappointed. I smile. My blood rushes where I tell it. Now it fills my cheeks. You think I am embarrassed, therefore you think I’m pretty.

I naturally stand shoulder-width apart. I naturally stand close to you from across a room. Smell my sweet sweat.

You are not fooled by my hip fat tucked in denim. Bulging hourglass. Yet now you want my hip fat. I am a genius.

I have the cheeks of a child and the lips of a woman and the breasts of a woman and the makeup of a woman and the giving, giving eyes of a bastard.

You cannot reject me.

We. Are. SUCH. Goobers.

Reunited at last! I came home to San Francisco and was greeted by the lovely Jules at the airport. What a surprise! Of course, upon our reunion, a photo shoot became entirely necessary.

Julia said &#8220;What a fox,&#8221; but I mean, hello, my patronus is a panther??
These are all Julia&#8217;s clothes, but she wouldn&#8217;t have thought to pair her reindeer socks with them, so I think that means I can claim honorary ownership.

Happy Holidays folks. 

Apologies that this is a selfie. 

I got this shirt for Christmas. I’ve been looking for a button down with a peter pan collar for a while. They’re so feminine.

In case you didn&#8217;t know that we are both giant nerds, Jules and I are reading things written by the same scholar! I am reading Oyeronke Oyewumi&#8217;s The Invention of Women for my Global Africa: Theories and Cultures of Diaspora class.
"Ultimately, the most important point is not that gender is socially constructed but the extent to which biology itself is socially constructed and therefore inseparable from the social." - Oyeronke Oyewumi, The Invention of Women
Selfies as Self Care! Visualizing the body! (de)Constructing gender!

"Oya, the Yorùbá female river god (not goddess, because the term òrìsà in Yorùbá is not gendered) … is usually portrayed as fearsome and ruthless; one of the lines from her praise poetry reads, "Obìnrin gbona, okùnrin sa" (literally: females will hit the road, and males will run; everybody flees when she appears).  This hardly supports the Western idea of femininity.”

-Oyeronke Oyewumi, The Invention of Women: Making an African Sense of Western Gender Discourses

Sometimes I pretend the red indents left on my skin from my jeans and bra are rope marks. It makes me smile.

(This is probably the derpiest kink post in tumblr history.)
