26 Male Survivors Of Sexual Assault Quoting The People Who Attacked Them
This needs more notes.
no one seems to care if they are guys
reminder that rape and sexual abuse happens to everyone, not just girls
reminder that rape and sexual abuse needs to be acknowledged no matter a person’s gender and “no one seems to care if they are guys” is a typical antifeminist theory that is disproven by the fact that this photo set has 100,000+ notes alone
I will reblog this whenever it’s on my dash.
When I Look At You I Close My Eyes 11, 12, 1, and 3 (2013) by Chad Wys (web/tumblr)
These pieces are from a series of extemporaneous drawings performed on the pages of a book illustrating 19th century landscape paintings. I looked at an image for several seconds and then closed my eyes. Next, I reached for a tool at random and proceeded to attack the surface of the page. Possible tools included markers, pencils, pens, knives, a pool of paint, scissors, or confusing decoy instruments, such as wooden dowels, that would not easily produce an obvious mark or impression on the surface.
A boy and a girl run around on the grass at the park. The boy tackles the girl. The girl laughs. She gets up and runs away. She loves to run. He chases, she turns and they grab each other, tumble and land in a pile, giggling. After a few minutes, he tackles her again and she lands a bit hard. She is bigger and physical, but he more than holds his own in roughhousing. She pauses for a second. Then she laughs again; she’s still having fun.
Dad gets his attention, and says, “If she’s not having fun, you have to stop.”
He is two. He needs to hear this now, and so does she. And again, and again, and again, so that like wearing a helmet on the bike it is ingrained.
Makeup is FUN, creative, colorful, and an artistic form of expression.
Women and men can wear it for whatever reason they want…and most of the time, it’s NOT because of the social demands for beauty or to simply “impress” people. And even if those were the reasons, LAY OFF.
I am all right with this ad campaign. It uses simple text that emphasizes that individual women have their own individual reasons for wearing makeup as opposed to just putting some airbrushed celebrity at the forefront and making people feel ugly.
This ad campaign does get to the point as to why I wear and love makeup: because I want to. I wear makeup because I think it’s pretty, interesting, versatile, dynamic, and it makes me feel like I want to feel. I don’t need to wear makeup. I do not wear makeup for anyone other than myself. Makeup is about joy and becoming whomever you are!
An amazing thing happens when you get honest with yourself and start doing what you love, what makes you happy. Your life literally slows down. You stop wishing for the weekend. You stop merely looking forward to special events. You begin to live in each moment and you start feeling like a human being. You just ride the wave that is life, with this feeling of contentment and joy. You move fluidly, steadily, calm and grateful. A veil is lifted, and a whole new perspective is born.
