The World Figmented
Oct. 20 3:15 pm
We never say that all men deserve to feel beautiful. We never say that each man is beautiful in his own way. We don’t have huge campaigns aimed at young boys trying to convince them that they’re attractive, probably because we very rarely correlate a man’s worth with his appearance. The problem is that a woman’s value in this world is still very much attached to her appearance, and telling her that she should or deserves to feel beautiful does more to promote that than negate it. Telling women that they “deserve” to feel pretty plays right in to the idea that prettiness should be important to them. And having books and movies aimed at young women where every female protagonist turns out to be beautiful (whereas many of the antagonists are described in much less flattering terms) reinforces the message that beauty has some kind of morality attached to it, and that all heroines are somehow pretty.

Flemish Giant rabbits are known for their large size. They can be up to 20 pounds and grow up to 32” (80cm) in length. They are actually very gentle creatures, are intelligent and well tempered. (More Information)

Today is Racist Fuckery (10.20.14): At yesterday’s protest outside the St Louis Rams game, racist fans got rowdy and physical. Who got arrested? Two of the protesters, of course. Mike Brown means we have to fight back. #staywoke

She came in every day at the same time and ordered the exact same thing every time, her voice always gruff and short and stern. Until she met Lark’s eyes, and then her cheeks always colored with a blush and she stumbled over her words. 

This time, she met Lark’s eyes with drudged up confidence and handed the barista a scrap of paper with eight numbers written on it. 

"My name is Rosethorn, and that’s my number and…well… you should call me," she said with a curt nod of her head, crisp just like everything else she did. 

Lark smiled and nodded as she took the number, her heart fluttering as she replied, ” All right.”

I said, “The only way I can play someone this hard is for something to be peeled away each week, and the first thing that needs to go is the wig.” I just wanted to deal with her hair. It’s a big thing with African-American women…You start when you’re just a young girl. Do you twist it? Do you leave it natural when it’s so hard to take care of? Then you start wearing wigs but every night before bed you’ve got to take the wig off and deal with your hair underneath. And it’s a part of Annalise that I needed the writers to deal with because I’ve never seen it, ever, on TV and I thought it would be very powerful. It’s part of her mask. - Viola Davis (x)

She removes her wig, her eyelashes, her makeup, never breaking eye contact with the reflection of her natural self. It’s an intimate, powerful moment television doesn’t often show: A black woman removing all the elements white supremacy tells her she has to wear to be beautiful, successful, powerful. And let’s not forget that that wasn’t just Annalise taking it off: It was Davis, too—Davis, who remains brave in a world where a New York Times critic can get away with calling her ‘less classically beautiful.’

reddeadcoquette said: I am really enjoying all the photos of your walks! They are really awesome photos! Also those are some awesome ducks.

Thanks Red! It’s a nice walk and with all the leaves changing I kind of wanted to share it! Also I know there are awesome ducks (Several groups of mallards—which is awesome to see)but I can’t remember posting any pictures with the mallards. Oh and lately there have been pairs of salmon in the water too and every once in a while I see some kind of crane which is all sorts of cool!
