So I created this blog with the idea in mind that I would write about my life both past and present like a diary, that never happened. This is basically a post-whatever-the-fuck-I-feel-like blog. You will get a fair share of fandom, consumerism, depressing things, and equal rights issue things.

I've recently been checking out D.C. Comics from the Library and reviewing them on my youtube channel, which you should totally check out.

About me: I'm Artsy, nerdy, and Girly; mostly ace, largely aromatic, cis-female and am basically white (my dad was a MoC) and disabled (I have narcolepsy and a whole host of other sleep and body functioning problems). I support POC, LGBTQIA rights, feminism/womanism and body positivity. I believe in empathy, and do not think you need to be a part of a minority to believe and fight for equality.
I hope to be a fashion designer. and to write my own graphic novel

I hate racists, sexists and homophobes. I try really hard to do the right thing, but I make mistakes and am open to opinions.
I will reblog things that probably have to do with art, fashion, pretty things, books, Marvel things, D.C. comics T.V. shows (Doctor Who, star trek, Elementary, Supernatural), children's T.V. Shows (Adventure Time, Detentionaire, Motor City, etc.), things that are clever, and 'social justice' things. I'm Kinda a spaz, and am the queen of procrastination.

Sending a big “FU” to the corporate side of the fashion industry.
As an increasingly successful fashion blogger, I have been targeted by several brands, large & small, one of which is quite a large corporation. Why? Because I am undermining a very important part of their money making system.
Today, the fashion industry is split in half. You have Women’s fashion & Men’s fashion. You will find designers here and there who produce androgynous designs but for the most part, the industry (brands & corporate companies) want designers who either design Men’s wear or Women’s wear, and follow a very gendered structure. Everything from the tailoring to the materials has to be specific to the binary boy/girl gender system.  This is why you can’t find feminine style’s of clothing tailored for the average males body type in any department store, thus creating a “mens” & “women’s” division.
Every time I modify the clothing I buy in department stores to fit my body type and then model it for people to see, not only am I inspiring people to step out of the box with their fashion choices, but I am merging two markets into one. Why is this bad for corporations?MONEY More markets equal more advertising and marketing opportunities which ultimately leads to more sales and more profit.
When I successfully inspire people to be less mindful about if they look like a girl or a boy, ultimately I am inspiring them to go against the gendered market system that brands and clothing companies make so much money off of.
I have received several hateful emails, discouraging my efforts as a fashion blogger. I was even asked by a large corporate clothing company to STOP buying their clothing and modifying it to fit my body type. They stated that by doing so, and sharing it with my audience that I was creating the illusion that gender did not exist, and that I am leading a bad example for society. …
A GENDERED SOCIETY CREATES A HUGE PROBLEM. IT DIVIDES PEOPLE.IT SEPERATES. IT CONTROLS. IT DISOLVES ANY & ALL ORIGINALITY.
FUCK YOU, to any clothing brand, company & corporation who’s got a problem with who I am, what I believe in & how I express myself.

This is just so important! Gendered clothing is such bullshit and I want more people to realize!!!

5 Reasons Men Love Asian Girls

frusturbation:

euthanizeallwhitepeople:

It’s something astonishing to me that we live in year 2014 and yet articles such as this are still published, receiving criticism in spurts and yet overwhelming support overall, and still remains posted on a website as long as this one has.

The fetishization of Asian women is rampant, disgusting, and a lot of the fetishizers try to play it off as if these are good traits that Asian women should be “happy” are associated with them.

Heads up - There is such a thing as “loving racism” if that’s what you even want to call it. Moreso it’s some sexist garbage wrapped in racism, tangled in gender role propaganda.

They reduce women into one defined name - “Asian” - and then assign attributes that are demeaning and humilating at best.

  • "When you do something that makes her happy, she’s delightedly joyful, saying “yayyyyyyyy!”, clapping her hands together repeatedly like a little girl who just received her first birthday cake." Childish, child like, naive, innocent
  • "The way she shyly caresses your shoulder when she wants to talk to you instead of tapping it with insistence until you turn around. Her special feminine touch in those little day-to-day actions makes a man instantly curious and attracted to her" Obeying, obedient, “well-behaved”
  • "The way Asian girls move, the way they express themselves and even the way they dance are artful ways to attract men’s attention to their greatest physical asset: their face. Her scintillant eyes, through which her emotions pour out uncontrollably, will get your gaze stuck in them for a lot longer than you anticipated"  Eternally youthful doll-like attributes, praised for unrealistic beauty ideals that no one can really achieve
  • "She listens to what you have to say and wait until you’re finished before speaking, never cutting you off in the middle of your stories to butt in with something about hers." Submissive; again obeying, obedient, well-behaved
  • "You will never be hungry again for the rest of your life if you decide to live with an Asian girl. Even if she’s tired and stressed from her own day and you told her you would order food for the evening to let her rest, you will come back home and be welcomed by the scent of a warm, freshly cooked dinner that could feed your entire family for a month."  Housewife; her race inherently means that she is a caretaker, she lives to serve others, she conforms to daily rituals of feeding and cleaning and assumes a role of a domestic slave

This is a “writer” (using the term writer VERY loosely here) that writes incredibly misogynistic garbage, so much so that an article saturated in blatant racism and stereotypes such as this one is no real surprise. See:

Tell this piece of subhuman garbage that these kind of trash articles are not okay.

This kind of shit is beyond fucking disturbing. Protect Asian girls and women from fetishization and this type of demeaning behavior at all costs.

I would just love to knock this fucking worthless sack of shit’s teeth out

"You mustn’t think poorly of your son because he is homosexual. He is not at all to blame for his orientation. It is neither a vice nor a crime, indeed not even an illness, but instead a variation, one of the borderline cases that occur frequently in nature."

Okay, okay. Now, this is a quote from a movie made in 1919 and yet nearly one hundred years later this fine concept of people are simply people and people are different from one another but are still people isn’t comprehended by present day society? Man, that’s fucked up.

Oh god. It went on to call society out on it’s bullshit and how homosexuality is condemned because people don’t know shit about it. (Though I’m not a fan of it being called a condition. But this is still really important.)

"Your son suffers not from his condition, but rather from the false judgment of it. This is the legal and social condemnation of his feelings along with widespread misconceptions about their expression."

FUCKING FUCK. The main character went to see a sexologist to see what was wrong with him and I’m just !!!!!! at the response.

"Love for one’s own sex can be just as pure and noble as that for the opposite sex. This orientation is to be found among many respectable people in all levels of society."

Man, it finished so strong, though. Like, I don’t remember the exact quote, but the main character got really depressed and did the thing…

This movie referenced trans people and androgynous individuals and it’s just….

BUT THE SEXOLOGIST WAS LIKE

"Through knowledge is justice."

And that’s just really applicable to everything.

riseofthecommonwoodpile:

isn’t it interesting that when a male celebrity calls themselves a feminist there’s no thinkpieces about whether or not they’re REALLY a feminist but when Beyoncé does it there’s ten million poorly-written editorials the next day

it’s almost like Joseph Gordon Levitt’s opinion is seen as inherently valid and Beyoncé’s is seen as inherently questionable

I wonder what about these people might be the difference here

I’m stumped, I can’t possibly figure this out

It’s amazing when hidden treasures and gems are discovered! The New York Times reported that what may be the earliest surviving film with a Black cast, made in 1913, was found in the film archives of the Museum of Modern Art.

It is a rare visual depiction of middle-class black characters from an era when lynchings and stereotyped black images were…
