I’ve decided to delete LezGirlsRock. Over the past few weeks, it’s become clear to me that Tumblr has just become too addictive and is interfering with my ability to get other things done. On top of that, the problems with a handful of people given me a bad taste for the place, and I’m just at a point where I’m ready to let it go and get on with life.
I’m going to leave the page up for another 24 hours or so, so anyone who wants to capture anything from the site can do so. I’m also turning off the ASK feature on the site because I don’t want to be bombarded by people asking questions or saying goodbye or anything like that.
I’ve enjoyed “meeting” and talking to many of you, and I wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors. Each of you gay chicks are unique, special individuals to me and others, and I hope you know and understand that.
Thanks for the memories.
Now that’s a gay girl.
[TW: rape culture]
When rapists engage in sex acts without bothering to gain their sex partner’s consent, they are not “accidentally” raping someone. Rapes don’t come from miscommunication. They are not isolated, unpreventable incidents. They are a product of institutionalized, reinforced, life-long privilege. They are the symptoms of a flaw in the rapist’s entire worldview. They are the product of the way the rapist has habitually devalued women, laid claim to the bodies of others, pursued what he wants no matter what—and never thought anything of it because he has never been called on it. That’s not an accident. That’s a system.

This is perfect
You know you miss your significant other when all you want to post is other cute couples…
If so, did you have a good experience? This is probably more relevant to the out of high school crowd, but I thought I’d ask.
