i would give my left kidney for asexual taystee jefferson.
she’s an extrovert who cares more about her family in all its forms than she is in dating.
none of her flashbacks or current prison drama revolve around fucking.
when poussey kisses her she says she’s “not like that” but cuddling is fine and she obviously enjoys that - why is everyone assuming she means she’s straight?
when she yells at p in the library she never says the issue is that she liked her, it’s that she liked her “like that” and “wanted her to take off her clothes and shit” - those are not the words of someone uncomfortable with a lesbian. those are the words of someone uncomfortable with sex.
she jokes about sex but it’s /always/ a joke. “a nubian king with a nubian thing”? come on. she uses it like a punchline. she uses it like an ace.
can you imagine? if any show were to have some ace representation, i could see it being orange is the new black. and can you imagine it being TAYSTEE? the fan favorite, loud and happy and dancing - sings like an angel, stings like a bee - can you imagine? taystee saying, “no, i’m asexual. not like a fucking plant, like a person. i just don’t like it.” can you IMAGINE? allosexual people being forced to see an ace character who wasn’t a novelty or a joke or treated like it was a disorder? can you imagine allosexual people actually /hearing/ the word asexual on one of the most popular tv shows that exists right now? can you even imagine?
#seriously though #that second gif #cas just has no idea what’s going on #he has no idea why Dean is laughing and he’s just switching between looking around and watching dean #so utterly confused bending over to try and figure it #but in the end he’s like Dean i don’t know why you are laughing but i really like it and #and it fills me with happiness #Cas really is clueless #but he’s smiling because Dean happy #makes Cas happy
This makes me very happy.
I walked up to Jared at the autograph table and he caught me off-guard because he remembered me calling him my sunshine during the photo op, so he started with “You are my sunshine!”
I then said a few words and gave Jared my sobriety chip and the letter I wrote him, and he said:
"I will never, ever lose this, or forget how much this means. I am so proud of you as a human being, that is amazing. Seriously, I will never, ever lose this."
And then he put it in his shirt pocket, and apparently told my friend behind me, “Sometimes you just meet some people and they..wow.” He said some other things I can’t remember, he was just staring at me open mouthed with the most sincere expression on his face while I cried through the last part of what I said.
AND THEN ONE OF THE VOLUNTEERS CAME TO FIND ME AND SAID HE HAD TO TAKE A COUPLE MINUTES TO COMPOSE HIMSELF ONCE I LEFT BC HE WAS STARTING TO CRY.
I am a mess, that was even more incredible than I could’ve ever hoped. I have never been prouder to be sober for Sam.
"At least you love me." I say to my pet as I hold them against my chest as they try to get away
