I write sci-fi, fantasy and m/m fiction, sometimes all at once. Please don't hold it against me.

I want to write an alternative version of Romeo and Juliet where instead of being a little ponce and trying to work things out for himself, Romeo asks his smarter friends what to do about the whole thing and Benvolio and Mercutio come up with the world’s greatest plan:

Marriage of convenience between Juliet and Mercutio.

Think about it.

Juliet’s parents want her to marry into the Prince’s family. Mercutio is a good compromise between no marriage and Paris.

Mercutio probably won’t get his inheritance if he keeps being HELLA FUCKING GAY ALL OVER THE PLACE so a beard is only a benefit to him.

They would probably get along great rolling their eyes at how adorably stupid Romeo is.

Romeo and Benvolio could get a “bachelor pad” right next to Juliet and Mercutio’s house. Every night, Romeo and Mercutio high five as they hop the fence to go bang their one true love.

The second half of the play is just all of them trying to keep up the charade and being “THIS CLOSE” to getting caught all the time. But everything ends nicely because true love conquers all.

Everybody wins. Nobody dies.

This has probably been said on this post before but it makes a reasonable amount of literary sense as well.

A lot of Shakespeare’s works, comedy in particular but also relatively serious plays like The Merchant Of Venice, were based in the tropes of Italian commedia, which is eventually where we get French sex farces from as well. 

Add in a servant who facilitates the nightly transfer and wants to get laid with one of the housemaids, some jokes between characters about people thinking Romeo and Benvolio are fucking all night long, Romeo in drag once or twice, and either a lecherous elderly neighbor or Juliet’s father always hanging around, and you’ve basically got the plot of a commedia performance. Especially funny at the time would have been dressing Romeo in drag (say, to pretend to be her lady in waiting when her dad almost catches him in some other man’s marital bed in the middle of the day) while Juliet was already being played by a boy actor in drag, and having Romeo pull it off so well that he gets mistaken for her. 

But yeah, R&J as a door-slammin’ sex comedy, I’d watch it. 

Commedia! *jazz hands*

Padmini Prakash has made history as the first trans woman to be a television news anchor in India. 

This milestone comes only months after India’s Supreme Court decided to recognize a third gender for trans individuals. 31-year-old Prakash has said that so far, the response has been positive.

Padmini, a former actor and dancer, has become the face of primetime news on Lotus News Channel, winning praise from both media vets and those in the LGBT community and a rapidly growing fan base that had her promoted to the 7 p.m. spot. It is a nice surprise for a woman who was reportedly disowned by her own family when she came out as trans. She later became a vocal trans activist.

Padmini told the Times of India that anchoring a live news show, with its lack of leeway for mistakes, was at first worrisome but she was committed to the objectivity required for the job. “I was very worried because I also had to focus on my diction and maintain a steady narrative pace to ensure that there was clarity and viewers could understand me,” Padmini told the Times.

This is HUGE. Many congratulations to her, and may we soon see this happening all over the world.

remember you are mechanical, not only in the ball and socket of your shoulders, or the resilient padding of your knees, but are in fact built from hinges, gears, and switches all the way into to your smallest bits

when your nerves fire, a tiny rod gets turned and a hole opens, like the twist of a wrench opening a fire hydrant letting ions flow through in a rush

the nuclei of your cells are organized by twine-like proteins that tie the helical DNA together so that it will send the right instructions, binding on switch to on and off switch to off

your muscle threads are molecular ratchets: this is why the only force they can exert is contractile, cranking along protein strands until the calcium runs out and they slip free

there is no grand overseer, no foreman, in this factory.  there is only an unimaginable multitude of tiny engines, self-regulating, self-organizing, safeguarded by redundancy, each part replaceable

know you are an aggregate, the sum of your moving parts

everyone is a robot if you peer closely enough

A few of these have been making the rounds on tumblr, but I haven’t seen one that says this yet:

  • You don’t have to come out
  • You don’t have to feel pressured to come out
  • Being in the closet is not shameful
  • It’s about protecting yourself
  • If coming out will make you exposed to discrimination, rejection, harassment or violence, you are perfectly justified in staying closeted
  • If coming out day makes you feel like being closeted makes you a lesser person, don’t
  • It’s about survival and self-preservation
  • And you are awesome and fabulous no matter how few or how many people in your life know about your identity

This is really important to know and to share, and i’d like to add to the last point, it’s totally ok to come out to a few people that you trust and not to everyone, don’t feel like you have to do it all at once. Personally I’m out to about half of my close family and all of my friends, I haven’t told my homophobic grandparents or my biological dad and I don’t plan to do so any time soon. There’s no shame at all in protecting yourself even if that means you don’t tell anyone for a long time, take it at your own pace, don’t let anyone pressure you, I know how hard that can be but you can get through it.

do you ever think about how little Michelangelo cared

All right, everyone, grab a chair and sit back because I’m going to share with you what I learned about Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel in my Art History Class.

The man NEVER wanted to paint the damn thing. But the pope at the time “forced him to” According to my teacher. Michelangelo hated this man, I MEAN REALLY HATED HIM. So did a majority of people. The pope’s nickname translated literally means “Terrible pope”.

And the working conditions were awful. He had to work on his back with all that paint, which is filled with some toxic shit that gave Michelangelo a limp for the rest of his life.
(Also, our teacher made us get on our backs and try drawing with both hands JUST to prove how bad and uncomfortable it is.)

At the time, the ceiling was so high, you could barely see it. You need binoculars to get a good look at what’s up there, by the time people could see the paintings, there was a lot of weird symbolism that Michelangelo hid up there.

This one? The creation of the sun and moon? God is mooning you. And the pope and all others after him prayed under that without knowing.

This one? At the time, dissecting was sacrilegious and everyone found out how behind God was what looked like half a brain. blah blah, science, science, that pissed everyone off.

And also, ALLLLLLL the men and women in the Sistine Chapel are all on fucking steroids. My teacher described the women’s bodies as "Men bodies with boobs slapped on."

And then there is this:

Now this is the back wall. Michelangelo actually wanted to paint this one after he finished the ceiling. (and there was a different pope too, I believe.) However, originally, EVERYONE in that painting was naked. And they didn’t like it. Adam and Eve naked? That’s cool. But Jesus? Now you crossed the line. So the pope at the time hired someone else to censor it and give the important figures clothes. He worked on it for 6 or 9 months before he died.

And then the symbolism in this one is great. Somewhere in the right, there are homosexuals in heaven. (No matter what, the Vatican will say “Those straight men are happy” I’ll get to that in a second), Michelangelo painted himself near Jesus, and the terrible pope is in hell with a snake biting his balls.

And if you were to point ANY of this out to the Vatican, they will deny all of it and claim Michelangelo was a catholic hero. In fact, when they discovered the symbolism around the 60s or 70s, the guy who told the Vatican was kicked out of the Vatican for life.

TL;DR: Michelangelo hated the pope and made the best “fuck you” of all time.
