Black Sails is the Violent Queerest show that ever Queered  
Just DOOOOOOD. SO GAY.

This show makes me the happiest little queer girl that ever queered. People here just love/lust people. Show doesn't give a shit what your gender is.

Lady loves a lady? BLAMMO!

Same lady wants a dude? BLAMMO!

Lady is conflicted about her lady lust? BLAMMO! Lady she is lusting after hovers and makes herself available to the first Lady. (kink of mine)

Dude is in deep DEEP friendship with other dude? BLAMMO! OH MY MOTHER FUCKING BLAMMO!

I love my show.

Like, I'll just be watching and crick my head at the screen all "Hey... that dude seems to really rilly like that other dude."

And then a few episodes later? I GET WHAT I WANT WANTED.

EXACTLY HOW I WANTED IT.

This show functions how my sexuality functions. I'm by no means a pansexsual, where a pansexual doesn't see gender. I'm a queer/polysexual/bi cis lady with an assertive sexuality that is sometimes perceived as masculine. Or as [profile] diluvian put it. I just might be a toppy top.

I see genders. So many exquisitely delicious genders. I see cis ladies and dudes. I see (and dated) genderqueer. Agender. Transgender. There is a mother fuckin' rainbow of genders. I WANT THEM ALL. I don't want them all to be the same. I like the variety.

GENDER IS AN EVERLASTING GOBSTOPPER AND ALL OF ITS VARIOUS FLAVORS ARE DELICIOUS.

And this show?

Is made up of queermos. Is made up of the fluid sexuality I inhabit. It may be made up of cis folks, but four of the leads are not just gay but QUEER.

We have our Lady Queer Ruler of the Island.
Our Lady Queer Whore Who Also Rules.
Our Latent Lady Pirate Queer BAMF of all BAMFs.
Our Queer Loyal Dude who is LOYAL to those he Loves.

And in case you missed it in my first post about this show?

ON SCREEN ABORTIONS!

ON.

SCREEN.

ABORTIONS.

Trauma, fandom, & healing. EscapadeCon  
Title: Fans & Trauma
Description: Discussion group for fans dealing with trauma in their life (RL, not characters who we love to traumatize). Just show up and share. Or listen.

It has been my dream to discuss trauma with other fen. To talk about fandom as a healing agent. Because fandom is my safe place, the one place where I can be myself.

I've been moderating a peer Post Trauma Support & Recovery group for 2.5 years. This experience has given me the confidence to talk to fen about trauma. And how it fucks us up.

It's been my dream to discuss trauma & fandom at a Con and how fandom can help us heal our trauma. This year is the first year I feel I have enough experience with moderating a peer support group to bring it to a convention and see what we can share with each other.

I hope tgo see you there! Talking optional.
