Me: Joins tumblr for fun
Me: starts to critically analyze almost every aspect of modern society
I’ve been putting this up for far too long trying to figure out the perfect thing to write. And i can’t. So here it goes.
Last week was pride in Stockholm and it marked the first year I’ve marched in the parade and that in combination with the love from friends and strangers helped turn it into one of the most wonderful experiences of my life. I am so grateful to everyone that helped make it into that.
Special love and thanks goes to my lovely Mia (my companion for the parade and pictured above with her lips against mine) and thefangirlisstrongwiththisone (presented with a brilliant hat and a mischievous look in her eyes).
I love you. Always.
Hello everyone! I am 25, bi and pretty damn proud of that fact. Look me up on my tumblr for a chat or a mess of feminism, unorganized fandoms and bi-humor. I am fantastically happy that I walked in my first pride parade this summer. It was one of the absolute best days of my life. Even though I am out to most everyone who knows me it always feels like I’m presumed straight (or more unusually gay) in most every situation and to walk/dance down the streets with the bi-flag on my face and top with everyone smiling at me just made it a whole transcendent experience. It was beautiful.
Look it’s me!
date a girl who reads. date a girl who reads every book she can get her hands on. who slaughtered a librarian to read those books. date a girl who shoots down helicopters with slingshots and commands an army. wait, did i say date? i meant follow into battle. follow Tamika Flynn into battle.
Tell me again- what are you not going to do in daycare today?
I will not hit the teacher with a light saber.
And why are you not going to hit her with a light saber?
It is my toy, and my choice, but if I hit her with the light saber, I'm acting like a Sith.
Do you want to be a Sith?
No! I am Obi-Wan!

Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8
