About Orange is the New Black's erasure of Piper's bisexuality Lindsay King-Miller writes: "It’s as though this show (and really, almost all fiction) exists in a parallel universe where everything is the same except that the word "bisexual" was never invented. … the bi erasure in Orange Is the New Black doesn’t seem to come from individual characters so much as it emerges from the fabric of the show itself, particularly since the characters on the show who erase or disrespect Piper’s orientation are never portrayed as wrong or flawed for doing so. … Contrast this, for example, with the portrayal of Laverne Cox’s Sophia, a trans woman. It would be absurd to tell a story about a trans woman that features no discrimination, and Orange doesn’t try. But the show does offer Sophia ample opportunity to respond to transphobic policies and comments, to speak out against the way the system and people within it attempt to dehumanize her, to tell her own story in her own words. Piper, on the other hand, almost never gets to correct anyone for projecting binary assumptions onto her.”

it’s that time of year again
marvel studios is going through a moment where they could literally pick any character and make a successful movie if they wanted to. for fucks sake they made one about a team that not even most marvel comics fans really cared about, when no one was asking for a movie about them, a team that features a talking tree and a talking raccoon, and it had the fucking biggest box office of the year so far. stop giving me those weak ass excuses for the lack of female led movies
Did it ever occur to you that we don’t want to get in touch with our feelings. That actually feeling our feelings might make it actually impossible to survive in here.

“Real,” I answer. “Because that’s what you and I do, protect each other.”
I have a bed for my sex dungeon and will start making the room presentable—hopefully get some boards for a cross or something. All I need now is...
