This morning I’m pretty sure I became someone’s story about how young queers are doomed because we have no idea of our history or our circumstances. A guy in the elevator looked me up and down, decided that if I wasn’t a lesbian, I was probably at least on the good side of the issue, and started to talk to me about something Justice Ginsberg said about skim milk. Since this happened during one section of one day of a court case the ruling of which isn’t even expected until June at the earliest, I had no clue what he was talking about. Then he tried to tell me about the differences in legal arguments between the DOMA and Prop 8 cases, and just as my eyes started to glaze over, he said his goodbyes and moved on. So, my apologies to any actual lesbians, I confess I didn’t even know the names of the two ladies who’s inheritance tax issue brought DOMA to the court’s attention. In the future I will endeavor to be better at walking around with short hair.

Today’s post was going to be a commentary on rape culture, and the misogyny of treating survivors like broken dolls, but I’m tired and I can’t get anything to come out right.
So I made this hat, and it’s for sale in my store.

My co-corker said the pattern on this skirt is called an ‘IKAT.’ I’ve never heard the term before.
I love a wrap-around skirt, but I am always too fat for them. But, I won’t let that stop me. I wore this wrap-around apron-style.
