PRIDEFEST!!! I'm gonna try to make it to the local Pridefest and Pride parade in the nearest metro area near me. :)

Additional links and stuff...

Reasons why cartoons from the 90's were pretty messed up. I watched these shows and I KNEW Ren and Stimpy was pretty dang weird and disgusting at times. I also thought Rugrats was weird because they were babies off having unsupervised adventures.

This is a song by my friend and her duo group. It's called The Lion and the Lamb. Despite the biblical sounding words, it's not religious. If anything, it's a metaphor for, "Then we'll achieve peace." It's a good listen if I do say so! But she is a good friend of mine so I'm a bit biased. ;)

This post compiling the Realest things posted on Tumblr about being a woman is a pretty awesome and powerful read.

Lastly, this song is ridiculous. My family and I were eating in a pretty quiet restaurant and this song came on. We kept cracking up. When the singer started saying, "Nya nya nya nya nya," I lost it and giggled uncontrollably. My mom lasted a little longer, until the singer said, "Sucker." Then my mom busted out laughing and couldn't stop. Then, it stops....and then keeps going!!! IT JUST KEEPS GOING. Even the "nya nya's" get a reprise.

What a song. What a song.

Wearing something glamorous makes you feel glamorous. Wearing something current and trendy makes you feel like you're a member of a secret club. This article identifies some of these things, which I have felt too. It labels the psychology of fashion so explicitly, and even brings in the gender gap into it. Why are men so into sports? I have no idea. Why are women so into fashion and looking good? That I can understand, but a lot of men cannot. That's so interesting!

In the end, it's all about how expressing yourself makes you feel. You can wear whatever, it's how it makes you feel. If you can rock a potato sack like Lucy Ricardo, you wear it proudly. ...That brings up another interesting thing - the tv show mocked Lucy for that, for her expressing herself. The tv show and media at that time (and still today, just less) were run by men. Sports were never ridiculed like Lucy's fashion was. ...Interesting. Again, proof of the gender gap between women's and men's interests.
