What was your first convention experience like, both as a fan and a professional?
Wait, you’re thinking we’ve gone to these things as a fan?

If you think about it Ursula was actually really nice because she only promised Ariel legs, and she gave her really nice legs that matched her body type and skin color when she could have just as easily given her goat legs

Miss Carter had suffered through cancer during childhood. It went into remission, she married, she became pregnant, and during the time of her pregnancy the cancer resurfaced. She told her doctors that she wanted chemotherapy [to prolong her life — her cancer was terminal]. It was a difficult decision for her because she had looked forward to this pregnancy. Her doctors, however, refused the chemotherapy, desiring to protect the fetus’ health. Again, similar to the Burton case, [the doctors] obtained a court order that would allow them to remove the fetus by whatever means necessary and to protect the fetus’ health. In doing so they decided on fetal health over attempting to save the life of the mother. The fetus was removed from her, and it died within two hours. Angela Carter died two days later.

What about the mother’s life? Part 2 of a Q&A with Michele Goodwin

this is a disability issue, a chronic illness issue, a traumatic illness issue, a feminist issue - this should disturb everyone.

A reminder: they appointed a lawyer for the fetus but did not appoint one for Angela. This is what we mean when we say that the anti-choice movement does not see us as people.

We can’t hate ourselves into a version of ourselves we can love.
— Lori Deschene  (via buddhabrot)




Johnnie Phelps, a woman sergeant in the army, thought, “There was a tolerance for lesbianism if they needed you. The battalion I was in was probably about ninety-seven percent lesbian.”
Sergeant Phelps worked for General Eisenhower. Four decades after Eisenhower had defeated the Axis powers, Phelps recalled an extraordinary event. One day, the general told her, “I’m giving you an order to ferret those lesbians out. We’re going to get rid of them.”
“I looked at him and then I looked at his secretary who was standing next to me, and I said, ‘Well, sir, if the general pleases, sir, I’ll be happy to do this investigation for you. But you have to know that the first name on the list will be mine.’ “
“And he was kind of taken aback a bit. And then this women standing next to me said, ‘Sir, if the General pleases, you must be aware that Sergeant Phelp’s name may be second, but mine will be first.”
“Then I looked at him, and said, ‘Sir, you’re right. They’re lesbians in the WAC battalion. And if the general is prepared to replace all the file clerks, all the section commanders, all the drivers-every woman in the WAC detachment-and there were about nine hundred and eighty something of us-then I’ll be happy to make that list. But I think the general should be aware that among those women are the most highly decorated women in the war. There have been no cases of illegal pregnancy. There have been no cases of AWOL. There have been no cases of misconduct. And as a matter of fact, every six months since we’ve been here, the general has awarded us a commendation for meritorious conduct.”
“And he said, ‘Forget the order.’”

Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8

# i think i'm actually crying right now# don't look at me




If someone called me pretty, I’d sneer and smear more glitter on my face. I didn’t want to be just pretty — I was wild, crazy and free. I talked about sex, about drinking. When men do that, it’s rock and roll, but when I did it, people assumed I was a train wreck. I played confident but still felt like an outcast.
