It’s just a way for the oh so radikewl queers to tell queer people that they aren’t queer enough. And it’s a load bullshit.
I have to pipe up here and tell you that I experience it. I wish that the entire queer community was as loving and accepting as people on tumblr, but at my new school, I get a lot of gruff from other lesbians. I’m “too-dykey” to be femme, but apparently I would look better butch, so they hassle me about wearing girly clothes and having short hair (it’s really just an asymmetrical bob…). It’s really problematic. Like people are held to standards in the heteronormative world… but there are expectations in queer community too that I experience and do not like. And they definitely derive from a lesbian couple not being able to just be equal in the traditional power roles, someone has to be considered the man, and someone the woman. It’s irritating.
One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn’t too luxurious. When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the President’s Secret Service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private. They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner. Following this conversation President Obama asked Michelle, “Why was he so interested in talking to you?” She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her. President Obama then said, “So if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant,” to which Michelle responded, “No. If I had married him, he would now be the President.”
Reason number 764 why I love Michelle Obama.
This is wonderful because people could think she’s actually the devil.
and a plus-size babe of color on the front page i can’t deal
This is AMAZING
LOOK AT THESE MODELS! This is amazing!! And it’s Victoria’s Secret!
Also notice the gender-neutral wording here: “PINK loves CONSENT is our newest collection of flirty, sexy and powerful statements that remind PINK panty-wearers and their partners to practice CONSENT.”
I’m not sure if that’s on purpose, but dang is it nice to think so.
OH MY GOD VICTORIA’S SECRET DID A GOOD THING
Now, let’s all encourage VS to do this for real…
Hey everyone the Pink loves Consent thing is a hoax. It leads you to a site that does look a lot like the Victoria Secret website but there are noticeable changes (like not linking back to any other pink or Victoria Secret products) and there’s no way to get to the site from the actual Victoria Secret catalogue.
Jezebel talked to a VS rep who said it was in no way related to Victoria Secret and they’re trying to figure out what’s going on.
This was on a flyer.
ETA: The black rectangle is concealing the name of the program, in case you’re wondering why it’s randomly in the middle of the photo.
