1. Bears are awesome
2. Saying that this park is near Manitoba is like saying that Disney World is near Florida. Don’t know why? GEOGRAPHY.
I probably shouldn’t be as annoyed by American ignorance of an enormous neighboring country, but somehow, I am.
Since you’re so up on geography, can you tell me in which part of the United States is London found? I want to write a letter to the Telegraph’s offices there, complaining about their caption.
Haha…. point taken. (Though there are several Londons in the US) Being a Canadian who’s not from Toronto and living in the US, however, I stand by my comment about Americans and geography.
This is also a game we enjoy. A little humiliation does a boi good.

This is a game I enjoy, as well. Face pressed into the mattress is a bonus. ;)

Um….. age play, bondage, authority….. this would make a fantastic photo op, methinks.
beyondthevalleyofthefemdoms said: Currently, my favorite sexual fantasy involves a partner in puppy gear sitting in the “beg” position on a Sybian. I tell them to balance a cookie on their nose. Then I turn on the Sybian. They have to keep the cookie balanced.
I had to look up the Sybian, and it looks simultaneously terrifying and wonderful. Should your puppy drop the cookie, I presume there will be a reprimand in order?
I need to replace this pervasive passive aggression with happysexyfeels.
somebody is a marimacho model now! NC and I had the pleasure of modeling their new poet bowties!
what do you think?
I’m so in love with her. ughh

tonight is just reblogging cute butches/bois AND I LOVE IT.
ZANELE MUHOLI, South Africa
Article titled:“Faces and Phases: Portraits from South Africa’s Lesbian Community”
Despite being the first country to draft a constitution that explicitly forbids discrimination based on sexuality, “hostility toward ‘difference’ has barely slackened,” she writes, “and crimes against gays, and women, have increased.” One in every two women in the country can expect to be raped at least once in her lifetime.
Such attacks have been the driving force behind the work of South African photographer and visual activist Zanele Muholi, whom we commissioned to photograph Lungile Cleopatra Dladla, a survivor of “corrective” rape and one of the subjects of Hunter-Gault’s piece. “In the face of all the challenges our community encounters daily,” Muloli told me, “I embarked on a journey of visual activism to insure that there is black queer visibility.”
Muholi had photographed Dladla already, in fact, as part of “Faces and Phases,” a series of more than two hundred portraits of South Africa’s lesbian community. “Collectively, the portraits are at once a visual statement and an archive,” Muholi explained, “marking, mapping and preserving an often invisible community for posterity.”
Muholi herself became a victim of a targeted attack last month, when the flat she lives in with her partner was broken into and over twenty of her hard drives were stolen, effectively erasing the last five years of work that Muholi has been tirelessly building. “I’m still traumatized by the burglary,” she told me. “It’s hard to fall asleep in this place, which is now a crime scene, as I dealt with many crime scenes before.”

The photos are amazing. I love the one on the bottom of the clergy person. Wow. I’m going to try to make a donation after my pay check goes through.

DF likes to make fun of me because I like to have “straight guy” fantasies.
Which is to say, the more girls jostling for my…. attentions…. the better.
This is a pretty good summation.

I have considered watching this show, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. So none, so far.
I can tell you that my favorite characters from the original L Word are Tasha and Carmen.
