Stuff I Found That Gave Me Feelings #3

Sometimes in the middle of my research I stumble back on my own Tumblr, or on something I’d seen before, and remember a really beautiful thing about sex I once posted on the Internet or found on the Internet or lost on the Internet.

These are articles / essays / things I found when I was working on my project that are about sex but are in no way about sex ed, and gave me feelings.

+ My coming out posts on Tumblr, including this quote from the genius book that is Coming & Crying:

“… and I flushed with humiliation, rolled away from you, and let the fan cool my face. … Later, still awake, … I scooted back to touch the top of your foot with just the heel of mine and finally fell asleep beside you.”

Erica Moore, Libertad from Coming & Crying.

+ And including this photograph, my first reblog from lez be honest and my Tumblr way of saying “guess what the fuck is up! I’m gay.”

+ And I found this:

“In the middle of an impassioned argument about the ethical implications of postmodernism/s for conceptions of lesbian identity, Monique Wittig (1994) interjected with: ‘The real questions about lesbians is now, ‘Who are we?’, but ‘How have we survived?'” (“When Jill Jacks In”)

+ I found myself weeping from the memories at one point, I think when I was writing about realizing you are someone. I’ve been thinking a lot about it lately. The Internet and realizing gay people exist, man.

i'm gonna lay around and think about you.
