Another thing that I love about “The Fosters” is their including a femme preteen boy.
The Fosters: S1 E5
There’s a story-line here with a white lesbian cop finding her adoptive Latino son taking the morning-after pill from a woman she saw in line at the pharmacy after he and his twin sister’s female best friend had unprotected heterosexual intercourse.
I can’t even.
"The Fosters" is talking about shadeism in Black communities between the darker skinned mother/grandmother and biracial mother.

So I’m watching “The Fosters.”
It turns out the grandmother character in the fourth episode, “Quinceañera,” is Lorraine Touissant, who is also my favourite legal aid lawyer on “Law & Order: OG,” Shambala Green.
Just saw an old man driving a car and smoking a clove cigarillo.
Jesus take the wheel.
My phone just corrected “orgy” to “pray.”
Who do you think I am, SwiftKey?
Mexico City: Sex workers gather to commemorate their colleagues who were violently murdered, two days before the Day of the Dead festival.
this is why you don’t fuck around with day of the dead, because it has a deeper meaning than “pretty sugar skulls”. those are offerings to the dead, a symbol of each and every person we choose to honor in the afterlife; not some quirky costume to put on and appropriate. those skulls mean something, the pan de muertos and altars mean something. so go fuck yourself if you think that they’re just for decoration while you shit on my ancestors for you stupid pasty ass bland halloween party.
And lets also remember sex workers who are not protected and their fight as feminism glosses over them and shame them
There’s a lot going on with this post, but remember that respect and support of sex workers and cultural traditions is so important, and not something to be casually joked about (especially given Halloween on the horizon).

So let’s get this straight: when male soldiers stand on a runway, Fox News says it is ‘disrespectful’ and ‘insensitive’ for President Obama — the soldiers’ commander in chief — to hold a caffeinated beverage while saluting them. But when a female pilot flies a combat mission in a US-led war, it’s apparently fine to speak about her as if she is nothing but a pair of breasts, and to suggest that despite her history-making status as the first female Emirati fighter pilot, she must not be able to park her aircraft. The segment must be seen to be believed.
Vox responds to Fox hosts labeling the first female UAE pilot to bomb ISIS “boobs on the ground,” among other sexist insults.

I’m on my way to a karaoke night hosted by my drag mother and bored on transit.
