I just thought about all the people who are about to discover Gilmore Girls for the first time and got really happy.
I know people are hoping that Michaela Pratt is engaged to a woman or a non-binary person, which I think is fantastic.
I also hope that if she isn’t engaged to a woman or non-binary person, that the same people will still support and appreciate her character.
I’ve seen often in fandoms where a Black woman character doesn’t get the same support or defence from fandom if she is perceived as straight. So I think that I, and other not-Black-women-people, need to remember that Black women characters need our support and defence even if they do not fit into a different minority that we want to prioritize for ourselves (in this case sexual minorities).

Been waiting for this aaaallll year.
This week, India became the first Asian nation to reach Mars when its orbiter entered the planet’s orbit on Wednesday — and this is the picture that was seen around the world to mark this historic event. It shows a group of female scientists at the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) congratulating one another on the mission’s success.
The picture was widely shared on Twitter where Egyptian journalist and women’s rights activist Mona El-Tahawy tweeted: “Love this pic so much. When was the last time u saw women scientists celebrate space mission?”
In most mission room photos of historic space events or in films about space, women are rarely seen, making this photo both compelling and unique. Of course, ISRO, like many technical agencies, has far to go in terms of achieving gender balance in their workforce. As Rhitu Chatterjee of PRI’s The World observed in an op-ed, only 10 percent of ISRO’s engineers are female.
This fact, however, Chatterjee writes, is “why this new photograph of ISRO’s women scientists is invaluable. It shatters stereotypes about space research and Indian women. It forces society to acknowledge and appreciate the accomplishments of female scientists. And for little girls and young women seeing the picture, I hope it will broaden their horizons, giving them more options for what they can pursue and achieve.”

Friendly reminder to check your breasts while you’re just sitting there scrolling the internet, then reblog so your followers do the same. Two people I know were just diagnosed within the same week.
