It's a very groovy mutation

Star Trek, Doctor Who, SPN, Avegners, X-Files, and LOTR. Social justice, feminisim, pretty plus sized girls, and Christian sensibilities.

My art/history/fashion/poetry blog is sarahtaylorgibson. It's much nicer.

parenting tip: talk to your kids about mental illness. tell them they might have a hard time. tell them they can ask for therapy and medication. tell them they aren’t alone. tell them if your family has a history of mental illnesses and which ones. just fucking talk to your kids and be there for them.

Yes please please do this it could save a lot of suffering

I am   she is   we are  we have always been
Among you
In you: Lesbian

I am the woman who does not exist for you
The President’s ‘friend’
The First Dean’s ‘companion’
The woman who never was

I am the teacher you adored

Veritatem dilexi

Under the breath behind closed doors
I was the rustle of skirts
The blush the flustered look
I was the woman in the next room down the hall
The one they reported
The one they made call home
The one they sent to the psychiatrist

What was it she said
About marriage and failure?
Maybe we got it right the first time

I am the woman who exists between the lines
The woman who dares not name her friends
Who does not bring her dearest one to dine at your table

I am the woman who graduated summa
The woman who never came back

I am the classmate who never writes in
The one with the unlisted spouse
The woman for whom no blank exists
On the Alumnae Directory response form

I am she who chose to love herself
At the risk of her life
At the risk of her friends
At the risk of her home
At the risk of your world

Veritatem dilexi: Lesbian

Judith Masur, Bryn Mawr College ‘68 in 1989

The above poem, published in a 1989 Alumnae Bulletin (the “Pluralism issue”), addresses the obfuscation of queer experience over a century of Bryn Mawr history. Greenfield Digital Center summer intern Brenna Levitin, class of 2016, offers a reading of the poem as woven into historical context. Check it out on the blog!
