i love you all very much
Gustave Caillebotte - The Floor Scrapers (1875-6)
Original on top, later version below
"Despite the effort Caillebotte put into the painting, it was rejected by France’s most prestigious art exhibition, The Salon, in 1875. The depiction of working-class people in their trade, not fully clothed, shocked the jurors and was deemed a ‘vulgar subject matter.’
The images of the floor scrapers came to be associated with Degas’s paintings of washerwomen, also presented at the same exhibition and similarly scorned as ‘vulgar’”.
And then the original became the cover image for Pages Passed From Hand to Hand: The Hidden Tradition of Homosexual Literature in English from 1748 to 1914
The TAZ IS BACK FAQ:
- It’ll update weekly. The plan now is to dedicate one day a week to the comic. I can produce a page in about 11 hours.
- A big site redesign is coming.
- A new TAZ book isn’t on the horizon. i’m saving up chapters for bigger books.
- It’s about half done.
Thanks for your patience.

Maybe some days you feel like a sporty dog and some days you feel like a stumpy dog, and that’s okay;
the important thing is just to imagine yourself as someone who could bite a chump way harder than you probably actually can
i just want like. a superhero character drama? indie super hero movie? no fight scenes maybe like a couple in an elevator or something but like the real Big Bad is the Past and the real action is learning to accept it and love urself and the things you did
it wasn’t published until after forster’s death in the seventies, so it’s still in copyright. :/
damn you institutionalized homophobia
You might be able to find it online or check an e-book out of your library
i have been looking ever since i first heard of this book two months ago and nope
so many libraries in the library lending system, and not ONE of them has a copy of E. M. Forster’s Maurice.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate Within Temptation’s cover of Radioactive?
o.o dear GOD what is this musical gift from the GODS?!
today is bi visibility day. as such, bisexual people will be completely visible for the next 24 hours. this is a bad day to engage in bank heists, ghost impersonations, covert operations for vague yet menacing government agencies, and other common bisexual hobbies that rely upon our powers of invisibility.

Magnus being tired of people’s shit
That last .gif isn’t so much “Magnus being tired of people’s shit” as it is “Magnus being a transphobe for no adequately explored reason.”
something is not right
