Twin ponies

Soooo, I've been really obsessed with My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic lately. It's a good show. >_> For a given value of 'good.' Annnd I've been drawing a lot of ponies in that art style.

Book recs?

Welp, my computer's crashed and burned. If I'm missing in action (which I have been and will be pretty often over the next few weeks, probably ;_;) that's why!

But that's also why I'm making this post. I've been reading a lot more books, but, er, I've become utterly spoiled by Terry Pratchett's Discworld stuff. I keep expecting that kind of quality, character development, lack of enraging elements, and humor from every other novel I try to read, and it's... clearly not working out. >_> The only other place I've found the same kind of general goodness is in fanfic, actually.

So, any more amazing books out there? They don't have to be humor/satire, just awesome and entertaining. Please?

Ohhhkay, I have a quick question that's primarily for female-identified feminists on my flist: in your opinion, is feminism only for women? I'd always thought that it would include other feminine-presenting folk who'd also have a stake in equality and defending the feminine, but lately I've seen a lot of people saying otherwise. And as a genderqueer FtM androgynous person, I'm no longer feeling comfortable in feminist spaces. Idk. :/

Eta: And I'm seriously not interested in intruding on women's-only spaces. I'm just wondering whether feminism as a whole is one of them!

I'M SORRY ABOUT ALL THE GENDER POLITICS ON HERE LATELY. Twindrej ficlets upcoming to make up for it.

Andrej Pejic, gender, etc. DISCUSS.

Okay, for those of you who don't know, this is Serbian model Andrej Pejic. Also this. And (possibly slightly NSFW) this. And THIS! Join andrej_pejic for more info and pics about Andrej, who obviously ~werks~ both men's and women's fashions. You know you want to!

Er, anyway. More seriously, pseudoblu and I were talking the other day about some of the Andrej articles and posts we've read, and the way a lot of journalists and fans identify Andrej as transgender, transsexual, or genderqueer.

I can understand the inclination. There's still relatively few people out there who are breaking gender boundaries in meaningful ways. Andrej's definitely pushing the gender envelope with his modeling career, so it's easy to fit him in with others who do the same. I'd go so far as to say that he fits the concept of genderqueer...ness. He wears dresses with as much ease as suits, and vice versa. He's said that he's both masculine and feminine, and that designers get a two for one deal when they hire him. But I feel weird about identifying him as trans or genderqueer, because he's never explicitly stated that he identifies that way. At the same time, I don't know if it's any better or worse to identify him automatically as a man, just because he's male-bodied. (Disclaimer on that one: he's said that he's fine with being called a guy and being referred to with male pronouns. So that much, at least, I feel comfortable with.

The point of this post: thoughts? Can somebody be called genderqueer just because they fit the definition? Could, say, Bill be called genderqueer, just because he wears some women's clothing? Is the unstoppable tide of "Dude looks like a lady" articles making anyone else want to tear their hair out?! (Okay, that was semi-unrelated, but still.)

Figured I'd take this back to my journal, since my reaction's so very predictable...



Have you ever seen celebs who aren't a couple posing together the way Bill is with Tom?

WHO ELSE IS FEELING THE CAPSLOCK KAULITZCESTOPHILIA TONIGHT?! Well, I am. And my theme of choice for tonight is TWINS LOOKING LIKE TWINS. Or lovers. Or fiances. Or husbands. Honestly, they all blend into a single, beautiful twinly entity for me.
