Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.
Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.
You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.

“…a series of free online tutorials guiding you through the basics of sewing, from setting up your machine, to understanding sewing patterns, and finishing your seams.”
Saving this for later cause I’m getting rusty as a muggerbugger
reblogging because i need to learn and my mom has a sewing machine exactly like this one
Reblogging in case some people want to learn a new skill/distraction :)
Reblogging because sewing is great for cosplay and it’s nice to be able to sew your own clothes too!

Damnit, Moon moon.
3/7 - THANK YOU for the signal boost. I’ve received an official response. Update is here.
(Big thanks to @Sarochi1 for this comp comparing my art to the Tropes vs Women. Read full article.)
Long Story Short: You stole my art, used it for commercial purposes, and won’t even…
Im a professional artist too, so I’m sensitive to all of the complains and concerns, and am genuinely glad this person raised this conversation in the public sphere.
HOWEVER, its almost impossible not to see this as yet another petulant attack on Sarkeensan, to silence her, criticizing everything except her actual message.
do you also have valid proof of 501(c)3 status, or a transparent breakdown showing that the Kickstarter campaign’s net earnings (including derivative opportunities such as paid speaking engagements & site donations) are not being used to benefit any private shareholder or individual.
Oh, come on. Do you want a copy of her birth certificate too? Whoops, that was President Obama.
Sarkeesan’s use falls pretty firmly under fair use: samples of work used for commentary or criticism, just like the clips from video games and movies she uses - profit or non profit. How do you think major (for profit) news organizations report on movies and other artworks?
Ironically, the fan artist’s use is actually illegal while Sarkeesan’s isn’t. The original fan artist actually -doesn’t- fall under fair use, and can be sued for diluting or confusing people with the original creator’s copyrighted creations - whether or not she makes a profit. Its just fan art is such a non issue - and good publicity - that most creators don’t pursue it, so people make large assumptions about its legality.
Go watch Bible Black if you haven’t.
Its quality stuff.
Go watch bible black with the requiem for a dream soundtrack playing.
Its like pink floyd and wizard of oz, how eerily it sincs up.
I love my cat so much, she’s such a cuddly and sweet and mew-y best friend
You should post pics!
I just wanted a gifset of all three… (x,x,x)
Feminism is having a wardrobe malfunction.
Does your brand of feminism remove barriers for women, or simply move them around? Does is expand options for women, or does it just shift them? You don’t liberate women by forcing them to choose option B instead of option A. What is comfortable for you might not be comfortable for someone else, and it’s entirely possible that what you see as oppressive, other women find comfortable or even downright liberating.
Before you think the girl in the middle is a strawman, let me tell you I used to be her, back in my misguided youth. I considered myself the standard to which other people should adhere. But that was stupid. It’s not up to me to tell people how to dress, and it’s much nicer to let everyone choose for themselves.
Some women would feel naked without a veil. Some women would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Some women would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.
