Nearly 5 years, and 5 wonderful birthdays with you. I’m honored to get to travel with you, to study with you, to slay goth lewks with you, to grow with you, really just to be anywhere in your orbit. I’ll follow you anywhere, and I can’t wait to see where lead me for the next 5 birthdays. Glad to have you on the wrong side of 25 with me. 💕🖤🌈☠️🦇👻🎃🕷

The worst selfiers of Fairfield County. It seems editing has caught up to us both, so I think we need more margaritas, more lunches like this. And more selfies so I don’t have to keep recycling this one. #latergram #womenwritersofinstagram #hardwomenatwork #appalachianwriters #editing #terribleeditingskills #margaritaswithmysenoritas #countrywomen #highschoolenglishfail

“The positioning of the corpse is vital: the legs are extended, the arms folded, the hands placed on top of the chest, the head held in place by pillows to keep the face looking skyward. These standards, like many rituals in Appalachia, are not universal. Death postures extend beyond the actual corpse into different media. Moreover, the effects of postmorten changes to the corpse, such as rigor mortis, have physical and emotional impact on the act of moving and positiong the corpse. Our understanding of death creates te conditions for the corpse we encounter. If our experiences with corpses are few, the ones we encounter seem alien, disturbing, unnatural...” from my most recent essay. Find more writing on my wesbite.

I realized I never shared this here. I don’t know where I’d be today without you, but it wouldn’t be as happy as I am in this photo. Besties for 14 yrs and counting. ❤️🖤❤️🖤

Can’t wait to read about how 4-H programs helped everyday Americans accept the nationalist ideals of eugenics, compulsory heterosexuality, gendered division of labor, childrearing, and industrial agribusiness. #appalachian #appalachia #midwest #ruralresistance #hardwomen #hardwomenatwork #queercountry #ruralsexuality #queer4H #lgbtq4H #rural #resistnationalism #resisteugenics #fuckeugenics #compulsoryheterosexuality

“Queer studies wants desperately to be urban planning, even as so much of its theoretical architecture is already urban planned”-Scott Herring #queercountry #queerappalachia #appalachian #appalachia #countryqueer #ruralresistance #midwest #queerohio #ohio

“Rural women have always posed a problem in the context of American culture. During moments of nativist anxiety, rural women have often been praised for their traditionalism, industriousness, and fecundity...these traits have also put rural women at odds with certain widely held beliefs about the nature of feminity, particularly the profoundly sexist belief that feminity does and should manifest itself in women as a weakened will, a trifling spirit, and a fragile body steeped in sexual modesty.”-Colin R Johnson. *photos courtesy of Farm Security Administration—Office of War Information Collection, Library of Congress* #appalachianwomen #ruralfeminism #ruralwomen #queerappalachia #queer #feminism #ruralresistance #midwest #queercountry #hardwomen #hardwomenatwork
