Hey! I'm Lauren. I'm bi, premed, and black. I like lots of things, like tea and cats, anime, family and good musician and food. I hate lines, the bureaucracy at the DMV, badly cooked veggies and white supremacy/privilege. I am also proud to be black, and if you can't get with that, then scroll no further or I'm gonna have to check ya ass. If you're down with the Revolution though, welcome!Love, peace and cookies! :)

Someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready. They can love you in a way you have never been loved and still not join you on the bridge. And whatever their reasons you must leave. Because you never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge. You never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready. There is more extraordinary love, more love that you have never seen, out here in this wide and wild universe. And there is the love that will be ready By

Oh Courtney with her humongous crush on Ginger and her charmingly overwhelming averageness

Even as a little (queer) child, I picked up on the subtext that Courtney totes had a crush on Ginger. She always went waaaaay out of her way to include her in things, even though Courtney is generally not a person who goes out of her way for anything. She wasn’t just trying to be inclusive to be nice, because again, she wasn’t that type of person. She just had some kind of fucking adorable fixation with Ginger, which I absolutely read as a crush… so cute!!! I was a frizzy readheaded little kid with an overbite, and I’m like “I wish a fancy princess girl would randomly fall in love with meee!” haha

the show just became like 30x cuter

Shout out to interracial, bisexual, pansexual, genderfluid, and otherwise “gray” or “mixed” people who get to deal with shit from pretty much every angle all while having your identity erased, ignored, or redefined for you whenever another group sees fit. I see you, love you, and want to make things better.
