I love how the feminist blogosphere—which, yes, I’m generally in favor of, but—has just now discovered the Stop Telling Women To Smile project, and that only because NPR condescended to do a story about it. I mean hell’s bells, Tumblr’s been aware of this shit for what, three months? Four months? I feel like I’ve been seeing that awesome stuff bouncing around my dash for ages now.
It’s just funny because all the general consensus in the Important Blogging World is that Tumblr is a silly, pomo medium with a flighty, “juvenile” (ageism hello) fanbase, but welp, once again we were onto something well before anyone else.
On the one hand, I LOVE my ankh rosary. On the other hand, the chain between the beads keeps snagging on my lace dresses. #gothproblems
Ugh, same thing happened to me while flailing around the dance floor, except it was the safety pins holding my Cramps t-shirt together that kept catching on my fishnet shirt. *scowl*

For someone who has probably already seen this, but here you are anyway, You know who you are!
Since Tumblr no longer allows one to correct sources, I will point out that this comic is by an independent artist and comes from Bird and Moon.

FWIW, my Pop Crimes tag now for sure has the entire Rowland S. Howard album in it, since that was my little reblog project for the day.
Bowie playin’ an invisible violin
We just can’t see it or hear it because it is from David Bowie’s home planet and our puny mortal brains aren’t evolved enough to see it. Or we would go mad from the beauty of it all.
