WlW Pride Soap – Sappho

Organic, all-natural, homemade handcrafted soap using shea butter and coconut oil! These bars create a quick, sweet-smelling lather that’s gentle enough for normal-to-sensitive skin.

Sappho of the Isle of Lesbos was a Greek poet, and one of the most famous woman writers of all time. She was known to publish poems about her love for other women. Her namesake is where the term ‘lesbian’ came from. Today, she’s known as both a legendary literature figure, and also a historical figure of women-loving-women.

Each soap is made to inspire and celebrate love between women! Sappho believed in women above all, and brings glory to all who stand besides her!

‘Sappho’ pride soap is available in original scent ‘Isle Of Lesbos’ (Bulgarian Rose, Green Cognac, Geranium, Baslam Peru, and Vanilla)

Check these soaps out on etsy.com! The entire pride soap series is available for sale!

I’m tired of seeing biphobic lesbians, transphobic wlw and mlm, lesbophobic gay men, aphobic queer folks, misogynists and trans-misogynists who think they’re helping by actively shunning and gatekeeping our own communities. 

The LGBTQIA+ community should be inclusive within reason. Different-folks-of-different-strokes experience the grips of our hetero-normative misogynist society in differing ways – some face threats of physical violence, while others deal with sexual coercion, emotional manipulation, or the crushing expectations of their families. And while it’s important to talk about and recognize those differences, we have no place telling each other who does and doesn’t belong under the rainbow because of them. 🏳️‍🌈

Coping Strategies

I found these coping strategies from my old blog and thought I’d share them. DISCLAIMER: I am not claiming that doing these will instantly cure you, or that all of them will work for everyone – I suffer from mental illness and I find that some of these provide a little bit of solace, comfort or distraction in dark times. Credit to Mind for many of these ideas !

If you feel angry, frustrated or restless:

  1. Rip up a newspaper
  2. Punch a pillow (generic but it helps, trust me)
  3. Smash ice cubes into a bathtub
  4. Go for a walk, run or any form of exercise
  5. Listen to upbeat/angry music

If you feel depressed, sad or lonely:

  1. Wrap up in a blanket and watch a comedy or something that requires minimal attention
  2. Write your feelings on paper and tear the paper up
  3. Listen to music
  4. Try and go for a walk or exercise
  5. Spend time with a pet
  6. Take a bath (works best for me)

If you feel anxious, panicky or tense:

  1. Make a hot drink and drink it slowly, noticing the taste, smell, the shape of the mug and its weight in your hand (mindfulness)
  2. Take 10 deep breaths, counting each one out loud
  3. Take a warm bath or shower
  4. Massage your hands with a nice smelling cream
  5. Take some time by yourself to rejuvenate

If you feel spaced out or dissociative:

  1. Chew on a piece of ginger or chilli, or something else with a sharp taste
  2. Clap your hands, noticing the stinging sensation
  3. Drink a glass of ice-cold water
  4. Imagine a safe place

If you feel like self harming:

  1. Rub ice over your skin
  2. Stick tape or a plaster to your skin and peel it off
  3. Take a hot/cold bath
  4. Have something to eat and drink
  5. Tell someone! 

If you feel hypomanic or manic:

  1. Try to sit in a dark room with little stimulus, wrapped up in blankets
  2. Take a nap or lie down, if possible
  3. Create a tight schedule to prevent impulsive decisions
  4. Exercise, e.g. go for a run, cycle or go to the gym
  5. Do breathing exercises (click here)
  6. Take any meds you may have been prescribed for this situation

If you feel suicidal:

  1. Reward yourself for every 5 minute chunk you get through without harming yourself
  2. Remove all sharp items or potentially dangerous items from your reach, or ask someone you trust to do it for you
  3. Talk to and spend time with people if you do not live alone, and it is beneficial to do so
  4. Call a helpline
  5. Make a list of reasons not to die today, and why you didn’t die any other day, no matter how small the reasons may be
  6. If you think you’re in immediate danger from yourself, go to your local accident and emergency department (link is for the UK).

Some UK helplines:

Childline: 0800 1111 (for under 19s) (24 hour)

This book looks so cute??? And it’s an ace romance book?? (That’s the first I’ve seen) I’m definitely reading the his hell yeah

QUEER POC ASEXUAL BOOK?????? FUCK YEAHH!!

HeishskzosgsmIsvdus uh

And if the tagline alone isn’t enough to make this legit in your eyes:

This is the closet asexual mood. Perfectly encapsulated and immortalized.

@missmuffinisthemelonlordofhades bABE

Now that I’ve read this I can definitely say I recommend it. I didn’t know how much I needed an asexual protagonist in a romance story until I read this. It’s nice to see yourself in a character and feel like you’re being represented for a change.

The writing style is a little quirky? But not distractingly so. The thing I found most distracting were certain pop culture references which date it somewhat but it’s still “Current”
