"Role models give kids tangible examples of possibilities. And as cultural critic bell hooks has noted, “oppression means the absence of choices.” LGBT representation on television has come a long way since “Will and Grace,” but everybody isn’t going to identify with Chris Colfer or Neil Patrick Harris. The “It Gets Better” videos are great, but have you noticed how few black men appear in them? The fewer choices queer youth have for role models, the more vulnerable they are to the idea that being a successful and proud black, gay male is not a possibility."

I’m very into my Rumblr horoscope for this week.
The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:
Sagittarius: Listen to your body, this week, even when you’re deep inside your head, all absorbed in moody songs and messy thoughts. You’ll to feel hollow and cold and stale if you don’t remember that you have a body that lives in the world, that needs to see the sun, that needs to move around in the sweet April air, that needs to be touched. Get up, sit down, take a shower, eat something. Eat ice cream and watch tv shows about animals, about plants, about rain.
Today’s image was made specially for Madame Clairevoyant by Jen May.

"They went to a Chinese restaurant. They could still eat. They read the astrology on the placemats and ordered green beans in garlic sauce and cold sesame noodles and then read the placemats again, out loud to each other. They were horses, both of them, thirty-eight years old. They were in perpetual motion, moved with electric fluidity, possessed unconquered spirits. They were impulsive and stubborn and lacked discretion. They were a perfect match."
