** TW: Objectification of women, rape apology, abortion **

Alright, feminist-bashers, misogynists, or just plain ignorant, oppressive people. Listen the fuck up.

Objectifying a woman is totally and completely different than a woman choosing for herself to apply any amount of make-up. The same thing goes for the personal choice of hairstyle or dress, or even career. The only instance when any of those things are harmfully “objectifying” is when a person has no choice in doing those things (or when they feel as if they have no choice, ie. a woman feeling that she is not valued or treated well enough without make-up on).

When I make the personal choice to wear any amount of make-up, I do it for myself. I’m not dressing for a man, or any other person I’m trying to impress. Which means I’m not looking for your comment of disapproval, no matter how big I paint on my cat eyes or on the days when I don’t wear any make-up at all. This is a personal choice, and I don’t give a fuck how you feel about it. I’m not doing it to objectify myself, I’m not doing it for anybody but me.

Why is it that a woman’s choices become the business of anyone she comes in contact with? Why am I to be judged for wearing lots of make-up (“you’re pretty, why don’t you wear less make-up?”) or for wearing none at all (“you look tired, are you sick?”). This is the same mentality that tells people that other choices a woman makes are meant to be judged by others. She wears short skirts? She must be a “slut,” which means if she is raped, you’ll be less likely to hold her rapist accountable. She has a situation that you don’t know about or understand, and for her own reason, chooses to get an abortion? Well, the people who know better have to step in and stop her, to force her to carry a fetus to term that could wreak havoc on her life, her health, and the lives of those around her.

Until the choices of women- from how much make-up she wears to the personal health decisions she makes- stop being considered public grounds for discussion and judgement, there will still be a need for feminism. So in conclusion, get your sexist, uninformed, misogynistic meme the fuck out of here.

But would heterosexual women really even care about putting on makeup if the earth was devoid of males?

I’d just like to add my personal story: I’m a heterosexual woman and I went to an all-girls boarding school for one semester. While I attended this school, I wore make-up and my favorite clothing styles everyday. Experimented with curly hair and shiny nail polish. Not for my friends. Not to please my teachers. Not for any boys, who obviously weren’t even there. And y’know what? I felt even more comfortable doing it around people who care less about how I look than the ones who possibly do. I didn’t do this to be looked at or to attract anybody, because honestly, being objectifyed is a disgusting feeling (unless you wanna get laid or something), being judged and degraded to your attractiveness in first or whatever place is just, fuck, not cool at all, no human being deserves this (unless they actually want to and ask you to).

Dressing up and experimenting with colours on your face and making yourself look how you really like it, inspired by whatever, is fun, is comfortable, is awesome. Is for yourself. x

First, let me say that not at all am I saying this is about you ^. But even still, just because a woman puts on make up even when there are no men around, doesn’t mean she’s still doing it for herself (of course, we don’t know this about the woman because we cannot ask her if this is how she feels, so we mustn’t assume). Some women still compete around other women to show that her appearance is more beautiful than others - and yeah, some of this may be the affect of individuals’ personal issues. But this constant competitiveness between women, with or without men, is a shame. I mean, who fucking cares if she’s god damned Beyoncé. You’re beautiful if you say you are. Speaking of Bey, she made a good point that women are taught to compete over bullshit, over looks, over men, but not over the important things, like a career, or education, or raising a family… *Trailing off the subject of makeup* sorry. But anyway, you see, the patriarchy as influenced a lot of the ways women still interact with each other even when men aren’t to be found. This is why feminism is so important. It’s more than just not shaving your legs if you don’t want to, it’s more than just “anything a man can do, we can do too.” Patriarchy is so deeply rooted in our culture, we may not even realize that what we’re doing or have done were influenced just so. I’ve looked at a lot of my past behaviors and made the connections. If I were like that now, you would think I was a misogynist as well… *Trailing off on a rant again* sorry. Anyway, over all. Yes a woman should, can, and will wear, say, eat, love, hate, whom and whatever the fuck she wants so long as she wants because she is more than just a woman… She is a magnificent, strong willed, human being wheedling consciousness, intelligence, love, desire, and power. Long live the feminists!

So, you think I’m fat?

Yesterday I went with my friend to Papa Murphy’s so she could get her and her youngest some dinner. I usually eat with her when I go to her house but I couldn’t as I had my wisdom teeth pulled Tuesday and eating anything that involved a lot of chewing was painful. So after the gal at the counter took my friend’s order, she asked me if she could help me and I declined, telling her I was with my friend. Then my friend tells the gal “She can’t eat pizza, she just had her wisdom teeth pulled,” to which I added, “Yeah, I’ve been living off of yogurt and cottage cheese… And oatmeal.” Quickly she replied, “Oh, well at least you’ll lose, like, fifty pounds.”

*Uhm, excuse me fucker?!
1) Did I say I was trying to lose weight?
2) Why do you assume that because I have fat (which is apparent to see), losing weight something I want to do?
3) Do you think if I lost 50 pounds I would give a fuck less about your rude ass comment?

*Things I should have said in reply:
1) It would cost less for me to lose weight than it would for you to fix your crooked tooth.
2) I’m not fat, I’m too wide for your narrow mind.
3) Fuck you.
4) *Thrust two fingers in the air and make fart noise* Jog on!!

"I am a big lover of Mexican folk art and the reason I love it is because it’s very accessible art. I consider it art by the people for the people, but it’s also is a mirror of who we are. […] I eventually came up with the idea of having some of the characters made out of wood because growing up I loved wooden toys, with all their flaws and imperfections. The film takes place post Mexican revolution, it was a hard time. The bad guys in the movie are made out of metal. The idea is that when they went to the army they put metal on themselves but never took it off, and they don’t have any guns because they’re the weapons themselves. In this world, when you’re born, the wood you’re made out of is really smooth and as you grow older the wood starts aging. Wood is life, and there’s also a tree of life that symbolizes it. The movie is dripping with symbolism and magic realism.” - Jorge Gutierrez

Meet Tiffani, my final project in my toy design class and a part of the larger Bambi project I’ve been working on this semester.

This was an experiment for me, I am obviously not a sculptor or a doll maker, but I was excited to test myself with doll construction and I’m very happy with how she turned out.

The head/body, hands and feet are made with Super Sculpey and painted with acrylics, the arms and legs are sewn by hand, and the clothes were made with a repurposed shirt I found at Goodwill. The flower crown prop was also made by me.

I would SOOOO buy this if it were a little more “finished”. The design is just fantastic. Loving it!

Black Trans Women & Street Harassment:

Conversations on Street Harassment often exclude Black Trans Women because we don’t view them as women& we see their bodies as inherently deserving of violence. We tend to see street harassment of trans women, not as gender based systematic violence, but as non-existent or inexplainable & unavoidable tragedy.
