If Beyonce roller skating in a Wonder Woman shirt while singing about cunnlingus ISN’T what feminism is supposed to be about, I have no idea what it IS supposed to be about.


Yes. Also I went roller skating recently and my first thought was Beyonce needs of make a roller skating video. Yayayay!

i always thought starfleet could learn something from me | ro laren, tng
made for mareel for fandom_stocking.

And then Picard Said “That’s an attitude that I’ve found common among the best officers I’ve ever served with.”

This is why I love TNG. And Ro was always my favorite.

Women Knit Uteruses For Lawmakers

The organization Government Free VJJ is encouraging folks to knit uteruses & send them to members of Congress with the note, “Dear Men in Congress: If we knit you a uterus, will you stay out of ours?” Supporters can either send the knitted organs directly to their congressional representatives or to project organizers who will hand deliver them.

KNITTING UTERUSES FOR THE WIN.

Seriously. I should hold lessons for knitting uteruses.

Women Make Less Than Men at Every Education Level
Among Americans with some form of post-high school education—a vocational, associate’s, bachelor’s, or advanced degree—men make more than $800 above women’s pay every month. And the gap widens as men and women climb educational ranks. In short, education is valuable, but it’s most lucrative if you’re male.

H&M puts real model heads on fake bodies. via Jezebel:

The bodies of most of the models H&M features on its website are computer-generated and “completely virtual,” the company has admitted. H&M designs a body that can better display clothes made for humans than humans can, then digitally pastes on the heads of real women in post-production. For now — in the future, even models’ faces won’t be considered perfect enough for online fast fashion, and we’ll buy all of our clothing from cyborgs. (This news sort of explains this.) But man, isn’t looking at the four identical bodies with different heads so uncanny? Duly noted that H&M made one of the fake bodies black. You can’t say that the fictional, Photoshopped, mismatched-head future of catalog modeling isn’t racially diverse. 



What do you mean people have body issues? WHY WOULD THAT EVER HAPPEN?

I never reblog shit like this, but seriously, this is bizarre-o and should stop this instant.

This is pretty ridiculous.

Even the bodies of professional models are too imperfect to properly advertise clothing with. Even with photoshop. The only solution was to invent an entirely virtual body that no human being actually has.
Let that sink in for a minute.

Thinking whoever did the Photoshop work for (click through for the article and more images) really didn’t want to be doing this project… What is going on with those hands!?! Creepy on top of already seriously creepy.

So…this is making the rounds and freakin’ pissing me off. Security guard is right by the stairs. How about instead of pointing out to every woman that she made a supposedly poor clothing choice the security guard does his job and chases off any shady dudes lingering under the stairs looking up? that would probably happen less often and require less effort anyway. Heh. Ohio. And Yeah, I guess it’s not so great to have glass risers in a courthouse, but should not be a big deal, especially considering the stairs are right next to security.

"I don’t give a shit what causes anyone’s fatness. It’s irrelevant and it’s none of my business. I am not making excuses, because I have nothing to excuse. I reject the notion that thinness is the goal, that thin = better—that I am an unfinished thing and that my life can really start when I lose weight. That then I will be a real person and have finally succeeded as a woman. I am not going to waste another second of my life thinking about this. I don’t want to have another fucking conversation with another fucking woman about what she’s eating or not eating or regrets eating or pretends to not regret eating to mask the regret. OOPS I JUST YAWNED TO DEATH."

Hello, I Am Fat | Slog

According to Hollywood, if two women came on screen and started talking, the target male audience’s brain would glaze over and assume the women were talking about nail polish or shoes or something that didn’t pertain to the story. Only if they heard the name of a man in the story would they tune back in. By having women talk to each other about something other than men, I was “losing the audience.”

Hmm, I think this probably has something to do with why I hardly ever see movies anymore even though I consider myself a film buff.
