Love and solidarity for femmes who don't apologize...
bossyfemme: feral-femme: tangledupinlace: I see you with your 5 o’clock shadows, your outfits held together with safety pins and strategically placed belts, your leather and your florals and the snarl on your faces and I can’t keep my heart from bursting.

things i ask the internet #544
all i’ve got so far are spoken word poets throwin’ it down and people saying fuck off. which is great! and awesome! but i was still wondering: hey internet, can you recommend any interesting articles or blog posts about unwarranted fetishizing (about size, race, clothing choices, etc…)?
witchcraftnancy asked: do you go to school? what do you want to be when you grow up?
batarde asked: I was watching a Valie Export film where she was masturbating in a bathtub and saw her garter tatoo and thought of you.
queenofswordsinverted asked: hey julia! last night i saw chester brown speak at quimby's and i ended up being pleasantly surprised. though the comic does contain sort of disparaging comments on the size of some of the sex workers (i imagined she's be skinnier, etc etc) he was very respectful, explaining how he worked to maintain the anonymity of the women he saw (by abstracting them somewhat) while retaining their...
askouija asked: I saw your doppelganger at a Seattle restaurant today! It freaked me out.
squintyoureyes asked: Thank you! Your post on spirit animals was fantastic (and the backlash from it is what made me write that today, hee).
lionza asked: do you have a goodreads?
bloodmango asked: Do you know where one could buy those gun stockings? Thanks!
disasterdojo-deactivated2012122 asked: thanks for making the internet and the world a much better place. i have been following your posts for years. you are amazing.

hemelbeestje asked: I would love to read your thoughts about Meadham Kirchhoff collection! I wrote something myself but mostly about lolita & my own vision in regards to feminism vs fashion. It's probably unreadable but I feel something needs to be said because so many are regarding a child-like look as antifeminist while I've finally reclaimed a brightly coloured girly clothing for myself so anyway it...
ledaintyboudoir asked: Merci d'être si articulé et surtout de publier tes écrits sur le web. I have been reading you for the last hour. Tu m'éduques, j'aime ça. xxxxx
baddominicana: everytime i see white hipsters w big gold jewelry i wanna slap them. they take everything from POC and soon as it lands on their pasty white bodies, it goes from “tacky, low class, scary efnic people shit” to “stylish and edgy”. fuck you. OH HEEEEEEEEEY point i was just making if you needed a reminder of the many reasons why kreayshawn sucks there are times when it sucks...
rubyshimmer: austro-hungarianempire1867-1918: i think it’s too easy to look @ that new vogue italia/meisel “ghetto” editorial and call it racist and offensive etc don’t get me wrong i can definitely see how it can be but you don’t know if franca and steven and whoever styled that thought the black (and white) women who do that with their hair, make up, and nails are beautiful i know franca...
lazy-flower asked: i first saw it on rubyshimmer's tumblr (the post is post/18321983569)
lemondropped asked: I think you're great and admire your open dialogues on political and social fronts. your outfits are also pretty wonderful. can we be pals someday?
fleisch asked: How do you feel about the new Vogue Italia shoot by Steven Meisel? ("Oreo Hair", "Easter Basket Hair" etc. were originally seen on POC but are now featured in a high fashion shoot with white models.)
keep sending me good asks, leaving anonymous on for another few hours. i’m going to answer some old ones, too!
What’s wrong with celebrating other cultures? Just because I made a headdress...– - the highlight of my messages with longlivethecrotch. i’d be lying if i said i didn’t get a slight variation of this exact same message on the dozens of other occasions i have messaged teenage girls who post photos of themselves wearing headdresses.
i get really, really tempted to publicly post the conversations i have with the assholes who tag their photos #indian, #headdress and #squaw in the hopes that i won’t have to have the same inane conversation twenty million fucking times. yes, you’re young, you’re white, you live in america, you think wearing a headdress and posting pictures of it to tumblr (with all of 5 notes...
killyrinspiration asked: You are my all-time favourite. I remember when I was a shy teenage lurker on LJ communities like thriftwhore. You were the most genuine person I had possibly ever come across on the net, and definitely the one with the most style. I was always way too shy to talk to you. Your writing is always challenging me, and it's really great that as I'm trying to build my academic career around...
andibgoode asked: I totally don't have anything constructive to say but I kind of can't contain my excitement that I finally get to meet you this year!!! <3
lookuplookup asked: Re: Your post of the tattooed girl with the zebra, I've seen the image listed as a portrait of Mae Vandermark Patton/Miss Artorio. I'm not sure if it's actually her (the quality of the photo makes it hard to tell whether the tattoos of the woman in the photo actually match with Mae's), but it's certainly a possibility!
wildmire asked: you're an awesome bomb... bomb of awesome oh god why i am so awkward at this.
Anonymous asked: I've learned a lot from you through this tumblr and your blog and you have inspired me to "dig deeper". I really value your opinions. Thank you for being around!
sexartandpolitics asked: I totally have a crush on you!
and that, folks,
is what makes an internet friendship last over the years. appreciating the squishiness of brains.
batarde asked: squiiiiiiiiiiiiiish
batarde asked: squishy
batarde asked: WHY U SO FINE WITH YOUR BIG SQUISHY BRAIN
Anonymous asked: too shy to say this un-anonymously, but i really love your blog, admire your truthfulness, bravery and badass femme style. please don't listen to the haters and keep doing what you do! :)
Anonymous asked: Can you relate to this: community.feministingdotcom/2012/02/15/i-dont-want-to-be-a-feminist-anymore/ (replace "dot" with ".") at all?
sonnywithano asked: Just saw that the ask box was open, and though I don't have a question, I just wanted to take this opportunity to say that your blog is far and beyond my favorite I have ever found. You post such a wonderful amalgamation of everything fashion/politics/art/life that I not only love, but have often never seen before, and your critical and respectful approach to stuff is incredibly bad ass and...
Anonymous asked: Are you and your husband in an open relationship?
