Bisexuality: Setting the Records “Straight” [x]

My Bisexuality has no bearing on my ability to commit to someone. All that means is that the potential pool of applicants is a bit bigger.”

New Show ‘Madam Secretary’ Pales In Comparison With ‘The Good Wife’ 

All these years in, I don’t have to spend much time raving about why I love The Good Wife. The legal cases they dramatize are as intelligent, and as multi-layered, as the characters, and the acting, from the guest stars as well as the regulars, is marvelous. Each week on The Good Wife, the show’s opening credits don’t show up until about 10 minutes into the show – and they always catch me by surprise, because by that time, I’m so involved with the plot, I forget that the credits haven’t run yet.  But when they arrive, with flair and a bit of dramatic punctuation, they always remind me, week in and week out, that I’m watching one of TV’s best dramas.

This is one of the most amazing (and depressing) documentaries. Highly recommend. Was still on Netflix, last I checked.

A large part of my adult, career-related life has been lived by Susan Ivanova’s examples and wisdom.

i don’t really know who this is i think she’s from babylon 5 but AWESOME

Oh man.  MAN.  Man.  Lemme tell you about Susan Ivanova.

Susan Ivanova, second in command of Babylon 5, has been through a lot of shit.  First, off, Babylon 5 is a deliberate melting pot of a place where. after a really bad war, different species can come to seek peace.  Earthgov is skeptical about it.  The other species governments are skeptical about it.  As a result, the station often stands between the universe and very bad shit going down. 

Commander Ivanova is in charge of operations.  All the day to day stuff.  She handles it pretty well.

 

Mostly, anyway.

She is not here to put up with anyone’s shit.  Not even if you’re from Earth.

She’s second in command of a station with captains that are perpetually putting themselves and the station through a lot of political… well, ugly politics.  She’s often the one left behind, having to tell folks the Captain is not available and she’s in charge.  Honestly, for having to be the grownup among so many damned children, she’s very well liked. 

She’s not all business, though, she’s a great friend as well as commander, with a lovely, dry, gallows sense of humor.  I’m not sure there’s a person on the station who doesn’t have a private joke or at least a friendly word with her (provided they’re not fucking up her schedule).

Her family is Russian and Jewish, and it actually comes up from time to time.  She occasionally sends a shout out to god (she’s not practicing, iirc, but she still identifies as Jewish and keeps a few traditions), She commentates often on her Russian heritage.

Susan Ivanova: I know, I know. It’s a Russian thing. When we’re about to do something stupid, we like to catalog the full extent of our stupidity for future reference. 

She meets up with family and friends from her past and doesn’t shy away from them:

Lt. Cmdr. Susan Ivanova: So how are things back home? 
Rabbi Koslov: They change, they stay the same. Russia is Russia. Your father used to say: “If regret could be harvested, Russia would be the world’s fruit basket.” 

She had a rough time growing up - her mother was a telepath, and in this universe if you’re telepathic and human you have two options: join a quasi-militaristic organization called the PsiCorps that will immediately take you from your family and control your whole life (they even have a saying: the Corps is Mother.  The Corps is Father.  It’s as chilling as you think,); option two is to take some drugs that suppress your abilities.  Ivanova’s mother chose the second option, and after a long, ugly period suffering under the effects of the drug, she took her own life.

You can imagine Susan is not thrilled with anyone associated with the Psicorps. But when a Psicorps telepath named Talia Winters comes on board, some interesting things happen.

At first she avoids the hell out of her.

But then, eventually, Susan doesn’t mind her so much.

Talia reaches out, and turns up at Susan’s quarters late one night.

They actually become real friends.

And you know, they have scenes like this.

And then, when Talia is gone she confesses:

Susan also later falls in love with a man named Marcus Cole, which means for my money she’s the first bisexual lady in space that I ever saw on TV.  Possibly ever.

For all that though, for her friendships and lovely jokes and cuddly-as-a-cactus-flower appeal, they never ever forget how good she is at her job.  She is shatteringly competent.

She is a military commander, and from time to time, she shows it.

Also, she was airlocking people before it was cool.

The whole crew is in on the airlocking thing, really.  They support her airlocking habits.  It’s lovely of them to do.

In summation:

Commander Susan Ivanova, bisexual Russian Jewish space princess of my heart.  Forever.  Watch this show.

Always share St. Ivanova.

YEESSSS. Babylon 5 fandom, we yet live!!

And did we mention the part where she coopted part of the hydroponics bays so that she could grow coffee to prevent her from committing homicide?

Susan Ivanova is my queen.  Also my rebbe.

(I refuse to call her St Ivanova because what part of “Jewish” are we forgetting, thanks for the erasure).

#another on the endless list of shows I want to get around to watching

YES. Yes, you do. It has its problems, it’s the first show to do all its SFX by computer (Amigas with Video Toaster cards) and sometimes it looks it, and it starts slow but god damn once it gets going it is fucking amazing and awesome.

Also, Ivonava and Talia’s relationship is canon and confirmed and intent, and the only reason it stopped when it did is because Talia’s actress wanted to leave the show to do other things nobody cares about.

I have never watched this show but this makes me want to!

I love this show far beyond reason. It attracted great guest writers, too!

This is Shion, my 11 month old puppy. He is a rescue and has behavioral issues. 
It’s currently September 16th and I need to find someone who can board him TODAY or I will not be able to keep him. 
I have an internship until November 10th and I am unable to house him myself until then. A friend promised to board him for me but backed out a week after my move 200 miles away, and was going to surrender him to a kill shelter today, September 16th, if I didn’t drive down to pick him up.
I have been looking for boarders for over a week and have not been able to find anyone. I drove down anyway and now I have nowhere to go. 
It’s the middle of my work week and this week is about all I can miss. I have limited time and limited money (roughly $750 for puppy costs including boarding, food, gas money, motel rooms, etc.) 
I am a disabled low-income student entirely dependent on financial aid. My internship covers room and board I otherwise would not be able to afford, but the housing is dog-free. I have no family within 1000 miles and no friends in state who can take him. 
I will have more money in January when my winter financial aid kicks in, so I can pay much more if someone is willing to work with me on deferred payments. About the best I can do long-term right now is $10 or $15 a day, with all expenses like food paid for.
I need to find someone who knows how to handle fear-aggressive dogs, is located in Washington, Oregon, or Idaho, and will NOT use unnecessary force like shock collars, alpha-rolling, prong collars, or yelling.
Please, please, please help me and my baby. If you know anyone or anything at all that could help me out, please send me an ask to let me know. Monetary donations to help pay for boarding are appreciated more than I can put into words - my paypal is here and there’s also a donations button on my sidebar if this link doesn’t work.
This is URGENT, I need to find a boarder IMMEDIATELY, that is a more pressing issue than money right now. Even someone who can take him for an extra day or two until I can find a more long term solution, anyone. PLEASE HELP US FIND SOMEONE! PLEASE!!!


Oh gosh I’m in Oregon but I currently cannot take him in.SIGNAL BOOST!

Rape Escape

  • Easy and very effective
  • Requires nothing but your body
  • Includes attack

Very useful to know, pass and share please.

Worth watching

I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this. 

I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head. 

Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away

So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out. 

I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot 

Informative

Hey Tumblr - Here’s a video of Ten Men Women Have Warned Me Against Becoming, a poem that I originally posted here in April as part of my 30/30 challenge, then took down after it got plagiarized heavily by another person on Tumblr. Hooray for intellectual property on social media!

I’m hoping to get a better video of this poem in the next few months, but I’ve been sitting on this piece for a while and I’m ready to put it out there.

I’m so appreciative of the 3000+ folks who liked/reposted the original draft, and those who have followed my writing since. I hope you enjoy this iteration of Ten Men. You helped give this poem life.

Thanks to B.F. for the video!

ps - I’ve also added this to my “Performance Videos” page

check it out dudes this is the (very stunning) impetus for my Ten Women poem i worry about him a lot bc i think people expect him to be antifeminist when in reality he is very feminist and lovely and an excellent speaker - not to mention a rad as heck poet!!!! 

head on over to his blog and check him out if you’re into good words :)

and ps? as a personal note? thanks for being my inspiration :) good luck on the challenge!!
