“The feminist movement is generally periodized into the so-called first, second and third waves of feminism. In the United States, the first wave is characterized by the suffragette movement; the second wave is characterized by the formation of the National Organization for Women, abortion rights politics, and the fight for the Equal Rights Amendments. Suddenly, during the third wave of feminism, women of colour make an appearance to transform feminism into a multicultural movement. This periodization situates white middle-class women as the central historical agents to which women of colour attach themselves. However, if we were to recognize the agency of indigenous women in an account of feminist history, we might begin with 1492 when Native women collectively resisted colonization. This would allow us to see that there are multiple feminist histories emerging from multiple communities of colour which intersect at points and diverge in others. This would not negate the contributions made by white feminists, but would de-center them from our historicizing and analysis.” Indigenous feminism without apology | Unsettling America (via aboriginalnewswire)

I reblog this every time it pops up, because there’s something so comforting about it.

Obviously a long and comfortable acquaintance with these two. The cat barely notices the rabbit, and rabbits only flop over like that when they feel relaxed and safe. The rabbit is literally trusting that cat with his life.

I am dead.

This is the world’s hardest karaoke song. It just never ends. Every time you think you got time to take a breath there’s another ‘noooooo scruuuuubs’ until you pass out on the floor.

“And that’s what happens when a lesbian directs a lesbian kiss. And then there were never any more lazy, stereotypical lesbian characters in American film ever again. Okay, not really, but every time you see a movie where a lesbian doesn’t kill anyone, doesn’t kill herself or doesn’t use a passport, it’s a victory. Go lesbians!” — Film critic (and favorite film gay) Alonso Duralde (X)

Here is a little information post. Nothing fancy. It is far from complete, but lets face it, a lot of lesbian cinema makes me want to throw my television, computer and most electronics out the window because they are so bad (Go Fish, Claire of the Moon, etc). These films range from stellar to alright, but I’m sure there are still a few decent ones I missed. For the TV section, I’ve only linked shows that have (or had) a lesbian as a main character/series regular. No stunt “suddenly lesbian for sweeps” shows here!

Unfortunately, no downloads here (Tumblr police are watching, y’all). The links direct you to the project’s IMDB pages. I hope you discover something new to enjoy.

Hello if a woman can’t attend your political event without having a PTSD-induced anxiety attack because the man who raped her is there then it’s not my fucking revolution kthxbye.
