Eid Mubarak to everyone who celebrated Ramadan!
We hope you all had a great Pride weekend! Let’s get right into it.
More serious stuff this week than last, but the posts were just too good to pass up. Click on through to read about misgendering raptors, ~*~sarcasm~*~ online, and lots of other cool stuff!
