I found three awesome LGBT+ book blogs the other day and I wanted to share them!
fuckyeahlesbianliterature.tumblr.com is a blog specifically for books about women who love women. It seems to have a fair amount of book titles.
queerbookclub.tumblr.com is described as…
I hate when people, especially family, assume im super smart because i read a lot. Like yeah you see me reading all the time but that doesn’t mean you can come up to me and expect me to know like everything about WWI and how the government works and what the fucking weather is going to be like. I fucking read books about dragons and magic and shit so please go away.
(and by well, I mean nothing below a B/B+)
Passage from The Diary of Anne Frank that parents of 7th and 8th grade students are claiming is “too graphic” and “too pornographic” to appear in classrooms. Instead, they argue, a censored version of the book should be taught if it is to be taught at all.
Gail Horalek, the parent who filed a formal complaint with her daughter’s school district in Northville, Michigan, added:
If they watch any kind of movie with a swear word in it, I have to sign a permission slip. It doesn’t mean my child is sheltered, it doesn’t mean I live in a bubble, and it doesn’t mean I’m trying to ban books.
Yes, it does. If it’s “too graphic” for middle school aged kids to read about a body part in a diary written by a girl of the same age, those kids are sheltered. Acknowledging that vaginas exist and babies come out of them isn’t pornographic, especially when many middle school aged kids can and do have sex, sometimes resulting in a pregnancy. Somehow, though, it’s more offensive than Nazis systematically murdering over 12 million human-beings in concentration camps, forcing slave labor, starving millions until dead, lining people up and shooting them in the street, and doing horrific medical experiments on unwilling participants.
When someone tells me I’m too old to read “Young Adult” books.
Hogwarts Book Sculpture.
I used 7 books (already damaged) to create the sculpture and 50 different scalpol blades. It took 3 months to create!
You did a beautiful thing here.Good thing you said “already damaged” or that knife would have fallen into your face. Books
