We almost expect women athletes to not be classically beautiful or feminine, and therefore we’re not surprised to learn they’re gay. Male professional athletes, by contrast, are thought to be our most masculine specimens. So when they come out as gay, it seems they’re playing against type. Even more than with femininity, masculinity and heterosexuality are widely perceived to be linked. For all the progress that’s been made, there’s still a perception that the bullied gay kid is spending his after-school hours curating a Lana Del Rey Tumblr, not practicing with the varsity basketball team. The bullied teen lesbian? She’s the one on the court.
Oh I’m sorry it’s tough being a boss
Ok maybe in not entirely sorry for what I’m about to admit but what else am I supposed to do when I’m stuck in a car with my mom, step-dad and 80 year old grandmother who has never heard of the word “nap.” Any who my mother so graciously allowed me to to use her iPad (sorry for the typos my fat, stubby fingers aren’t quite nimble as I wish they were) and so began my pinning spree. I’m on a Facebook cleanse-lets see if this will last through out the summer, so Pinterest was my only outlet (sorry twitter we all know Fridays are your off day). I already have 2-4 boards of food and was on the verge of creating a board based solely on grilled cheese when the unthinkable happened….I created a wedding board. This is my deepest darkest secret and should not be reveled by any means except for the fact that this is a public blog site and I have tons of Pinterest followers (also public). Oh so maybe it’s not as secretive as the time I told my Mom I was late to a family function due to a hair cut-it was actually a bikini wax. But still I feel so ashamed and embarrassed and I’VE TOTALLY BECOME THAT GIRL WHY ME? I just couldn’t stop the dresses were so pretty and cakes looked so yummy. To try to camouflage what I did I titled the board “Bridal Shower Ideas” for the shower I never intend on throwing my mother (I’m too broke to even participate in Sunday Funday). So in retrospect the crafty ideas were for her fake shower but then came the bridesmaid dresses and the cakes, flowers, gowns. I can’t. Dead.
Cobwebs under my bed. Every girl had a literal or figurative “Wedding Ideas” Pinterest board you just probably don’t know about it yet.
People are just jealous of the extra chromosome
