“When thinking of iconic romance, ask yourself if any imagery (paintings, photographs, film-stills) comes to mind that is not showing heterosexual couples? Probably not,” says photographer Braden Summers of his photo series of everyday gay and lesbian couples from around the globe.

Can we start fancy dress essay-writing parties? I just want to write my essays while wearing a top hat and drinking tea and I don’t want to be alone when everything goes completely wrong and I realise I’m insane.
heyo~ Mod Fey here. You’ve seen me around a bit but I haven’t shared my family ghost story yet, so while I’m waiting to get to the bottom of your submissions in the inbox (there are a LOT, so thank you very much not just for sharing your stories, but for your patience with us getting through them!) I decided it’s time to share!
My grandparents had an old house in Shaler Township, PA (It’s a bit North of Pittsburgh.) It was built very close to the hillside, only a two-foot gap (at best!) existed between it and the hill. It was very old (for the US at least, haha), even though it was well-kept, the windows were the thick wavy glass that older buildings have. There was a large porch with a crawlspace under it, an upstairs floor with very few windows, and a large basement painted gray everywhere (even the floor). But the room I remember the most vividly was the hallway with dark doors leading to the bar, bedroom and closet on one side, and the other side had openings into the kitchen and living room.
I absolutely HATED that hallway.

You can take an aesthetically pleasing photo of almost any food combination and I’ll want to try the recipe, but in reality if someone came up to me and said “try this melted cheese on a piece of watermelon” id tell them to love themselves
Sending a big “FU” to the corporate side of the fashion industry.
As an increasingly successful fashion blogger, I have been targeted by several brands, large & small, one of which is quite a large corporation.
Because I am undermining a very important part of their money making system.
Today, the fashion industry is split in half.
You have Women’s fashion & Men’s fashion.
You will find designers here and there who produce androgynous designs but for the most part, the industry (brands & corporate companies) want designers who either design Men’s wear or Women’s wear, and follow a very gendered structure. Everything from the tailoring to the materials has to be specific to the binary boy/girl gender system.
This is why you can’t find feminine style’s of clothing tailored for the average males body type in any department store, thus creating a “mens” & “women’s” division.
Every time I modify the clothing I buy in department stores to fit my body type and then model it for people to see, not only am I inspiring people to step out of the box with their fashion choices, but I am merging two markets into one.
Why is this bad for corporations?
More markets equal more advertising and marketing opportunities which ultimately leads to more sales and more profit.
When I successfully inspire people to be less mindful about if they look like a girl or a boy, ultimately I am inspiring them to go against the gendered market system that brands and clothing companies make so much money off of.
I have received several hateful emails, discouraging my efforts as a fashion blogger. I was even asked by a large corporate clothing company to STOP buying their clothing and modifying it to fit my body type. They stated that by doing so, and sharing it with my audience that I was creating the illusion that gender did not exist, and that I am leading a bad example for society. …
A GENDERED SOCIETY CREATES A HUGE PROBLEM.
IT DIVIDES PEOPLE.
IT DISOLVES ANY & ALL ORIGINALITY.
FUCK YOU, to any clothing brand, company & corporation who’s got a problem with who I am, what I believe in & how I express myself.
