The Great Wall of Vagina - Jamie McCartney (x)

Jamie made molds of the vaginas of women between 18 and 76 years. Among others, they include twins and transgender women. Women are often confused about their vagina, because they think it looks different: with this project he demonstrates that vaginas are as different as faces. McCartney hopes that his work will help to stop the increasing growth of labia corrections in recent years.

This is the timeline expressions of my day to day life decisions

The worst thing about Allison being dead is that eventually we’re going to have nothing more to gif of her and we’ll slowly see less and less of her on our dash. And eventually she’ll disappear from Fics, no longer being a background character or a friend, just an empty face.

If that’s not truly heart breaking I don’t know what is.

Everything Beyonce does is careful and thought out. Her entire image is perfection crafted from planning ahead. She does not ‘wing it’ or throw things into her performances and public appearances ‘just because’.

What she did at this award show was amazing, especially because of how intentional and thought out it clearly was.

Feminism is a scary word for a lot of people. Many women are afraid of calling themselves feminist because they think it implies anger, hatred of men, or a rejection of traditional femininity. 

Beyonce presented everyone watching with two distinct images of what many viewers viewed as two very different women. There is the strong, independent FEMINIST. She is the woman who likes being in control and being in the spotlight. Then there is the WIFE and MOTHER. She is soft, sweet, smiling at the husband and child you can tell she loves and values so much.

For every girl watching who was afraid to be a feminist, afraid to be powerful, because of what she thought she would lose, this is an incredible message. You can be all the things you want to be. You can be both. Feminists can have amazing happy, full lives full of both traditional and modern womanhood. 

Feminism means gender should not be a source of persecution or a restriction of your choices. Feminism mean the type of person you should be is based on what you value, not what outside forces pressure you to value because of your gender or biological sex. Shout at the top of your lungs that you are a feminist and proud. Then go and be the exact person that you want to be. 

This made me tear up when I watched it. There are many legitimate critiques to be made of Beyoncé; that’s she’s lazy or doesn’t really do any work definitely isn’t one of them. She worked for both her career AND her family, against real odds. And to see how proud her husband and baby are of her here, and her reaction to that? Especially after reading some things about real shitty hateful things people (white people, white ladies, no surprise) have said about this performance? I totally cried, zero shame.

This is what bothers me, though. Couldn’t she have stood in front of the giant glowing “feminist” sign and NOT followed it up with being a wife and mother? I’m incredibly wary of any narrative that shouts “you can have it all!” because “having it all” shouldn’t have to look the same for all people and her success and fame shouldn’t hinge on whether or not she also has a softer side to tone down the strong, confident, feminist side. Why is that even a binary in the first place? Why does it even matter that she can be both? What if you just want to be Nicki Minaj? Or somewhere in between? I’d much rather think about that performance in terms of “you can define your own feminism” than “look! you can be a feminist and still have a husband and kids!” I mean, I’d rather not think about ANYTHING in terms of having a husband and kids, personally. 

All of this… but actually.

Sometimes I get random waves of Firefly feels and then I’m sad.

Bee Quilt

The material has been hand dyed with turmeric, tea and onions skins. Then hand printed with lino cuts to represent the larvae, workers, drones and the single queen bee. The quilt was then then pieced, quilted and bound by hand.

The bees are arranged in a rough imitation of the structure of a hive: the queen is surrounded by workers, each drone and larvae are attended by their own workers, while others form a circle to represent a “bee dance” and some stand guard at the entrance to the hive.

I wanna make this!
