mappingthemoon asked: I think I started following you bc katy and at first I was really intimidated by your knowledge and ability to articulate about feminist issues (I did not even know what "social justice" meant, I have v little education in feminist history :C) and I am p sure you schooled me on some stuff and I was mad about it at first (like, open mouth insert foot) and then I learned some things and I was like OH I see. Also here for making fun of punx and leeching off your art history expertise &you're great!
I’m kind of embarrassed that I would have wanted to “school” you about anything and that I might have had that kind of internet stance once but I think it’s cool that we got through that and I consider you one of my very important comrades in this whole thing
satey shook her head and misted me with drool
malheureuse-enfant asked: found your blog through missvoltairine, everything you post is awesome x

Anonymous asked: I didn't even have a tumblr for the longest time but I ended up following you (like going to your page w/ no referral) for the traumablogging (I never blog or talk about my shit and I live vicariously through others' blogging about it), the trashing of punk bands/affect theorists and I don't think we have a lot in common but you seem like a mess and an organic thinker and I'm into that combination.
"like a mess and an organic thinker" omg i’m putting this in my about me
tarae asked: think I followed you (and katy) during the very first sp**nb*y debacle but I may have been following you before that I don't even remember the chronology is very confusing
i literally cannot remember a time before knowing you on the internet?
Anonymous asked: I followed you because my enemies are friends with your enemies, you are so much braver than me
i hope i have been mean to your enemies
to be fair i now only care about you and like two other tumblrs and iwish you posted more
remember that i started following you because i posted a screenshot of my ancient aim buddy list and you had been internet friends with my high school boyfriend’s brother many years ago? it’s insane that that was a real thing that happened
intrazone asked: I think I followed you because of clem bastow and I stayed for sqiod + make up blogging (I am still such an amatuer but I am inspired by you daily) + long term relationships after trauma + not killies <3 side note: your blogging schedule seems to work well with australians?
i know i end up with really good eastern hemisphere friends because of insomnia! you’re always there for me when i need it
shadypinesretirementhome asked: I followed you because our blue eyeshadows ourselves/sad girl nation/history blogging!
