final for my 2D foundation class.
i wanted to approach the issue of society vilifying women for their sexual decisions.
things may or may not change before i print them on sunday, idk.
this. is brilliant, i mean on a completely different level of brilliant. The idea is so blunt but so positive to what woman should think and i really really like this.
Androgyny at its finest right here.
This caption infuriates me. Androgyny is so much more than just a thin, white person with no breasts and short hair. Androgyny, from my perspective, is the blending of masculine and feminine elements in any and all forms. Androgyny isn’t looking male, it’s looking like a human who expresses both masculinity and creates new gender options. It doesn’t just apply white male standards of attractiveness to female bodies but works to broaden the shades of gray.
These folks have the kind of androgyny I’m talking about:
streetstyle via blackfashion
man in a skirt via sean at fruitpunch
how would y’all define androgyny in a way that’s more inclusive?
So glad I’m not the only one who feels this way!

“So there’s this… gym rhetoric. It’s sexist rhetoric. And it’s enabled by well-meaning people who still don’t get the actual problem, which is gender boundary transgression.” An excellent post by Kate on the attitudes about women who lift heavy weights and how much space women are supposed to take up.
So full of WIN.
One thing I love about this music video (which was not actually made or produced by Marina) is that it remixes the classic Disney fairytales into something else - Ariel turns her prince into a merman, Cinderella tells her prince to fuck off for being shallow, Sleeping Beauty gets tired of waiting for her prince to work up the nerve to kiss her, etc. It’s wonderful, especially since young Alice is the bookend and clearly takes confidence from the reworked versions of the stories.
This video is brilliant on so many levels. I want to live in it.

“Poses” is a direct criticism of the absurd and artificial world of glamour and of fashion that magazines present. Specifically, the highly-distorted image of women that they transmit through models that do not represent real women and that avoid all those who are not within their restricted parameters.
These images are virtually the only feminine reference in the mass media and they have a great influence in both men and women when building our roles in terms of behavior and ways of thinking.
Using these impossible stances of the fashion publishing houses as a symbol of how grotesque and unreal this industry is, a group of real women transfer these poses to daily scenes: the queue of a museum, the supermarket or the bus stop, sparking off the reaction of the spectators (on the other hand, regular consumers of these images).
The aim: to make it clear how ridiculous, and at times harmful, it can be to follow these models that the world of glamour impose on us.
