I’ve been thinking about gay icons and how most (not all) young gay guys look up to strong female idols. Many gays will argue about who is better but there is no doubt that they helped you growing up as a gay teen. They gave you hope even if you didn’t realize it. Some of them have saved lives. It’s interesting how most gay guys have similar idols. Most of the notorious gay icons represent the courage most in-the-closet gay guys didn’t have. Most of these women aren’t scared to express themselves sexually. They don’t let men or other women define them. They are free and powerful, despite living in a culture that shames women for being open sexually and that shames women for being in charge. And they get tons of scrutiny for it, and we can relate to that.
(Of course there are many more women I didn’t put in this gifset)

The human brain is an amazing organ. It functions 24 hours a day from the day we are born and only stops when we are taking an exam or fall in love.
