Quote with 15 notes

See, comments like these are actually about POWER. The social dynamics of who has, or should have, power in public spaces. Women, particularly women who do not fit into normative standards of beauty, particularly fat women, are discriminated against in many areas of life, and their bodies are constantly put on blast in public spaces. This is seen as an acceptable practice, and most people do it with impunity. This is oppression at work.

Alison, Boston

Thin privilege is riding public transit without someone pretending you’re taking up more than your fair share of space.  Thin privilege is being able to act like a jackass—if indeed that even happened—without your weight being a factor in how people respond to you.

lickystickypickyshe:

After hearing the same question over and over from friends and family — “Why aren’t you married yet?” — art director Suzanne Heintz got tired of it and set out to do something about it. She got herself a little family…of mannequins.

Over the course of 14 years and 10,000 miles of travel, she took her fake family everywhere and took all kinds of “family” pictures….

I loved the comment of Laura:

 She’s underlining the fact that for many people, a family seems to be little better than a trophy or badge to prove that someone has succeeded at fulfilling society’s expectations of them. How many families look great in photographs but are actually empty inside? The point is not to condemn family life, but to refuse to accept that a good life is simply one that looks good to other people.

So I decided my new life goal is to become a magical girl viking

Because I love metal. I love metal so much. It’s the music that calms me down the most and I fucking love metal heads. Everything about it is great.

I just also wish I could be super fucking cute while also being a metal head. I mean I do it anyway but imagine if I could do it BETTER. LIKE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS! Be super brutal and badass but also super femme and adorable!!

I want to chug beer and smash it then explode into rainbow sparkles and bows and get a cute little outfit with a little skirt and a fur cloak and take my sparkly weapon and go cut off the head of a dragon and write it’s name on my face in it’s own blood and drink some more and giggle adorably and have a talking pet that instructs me and my comrades about our magical powers. That’s what I want out of my life.

Also I might have to draw more of these and by might I MEAN FUCKING YES

I’m glad I decided to refresh tumblr one more time before going to bed.

IN THE NAME OF THOR ODINSON I WILL PUNISH YOU

Hahahahahahaha! Genius!

but… high heels?

Yup. High heels. It’s a magical girl version of myself so I drew myself in shoes that I like and have no issue wearing or moving around in! I personally prefer heeled boots so that’s what I drew for me~! I’ll admit I drew them a tad to high but oh well.

Also thanks for 18k notes guys!! That’s insane and I love all of you!

THE HEELS ARE CAST-IRON AND THE HEELS ARE HIGH SO SHE CAN USE THEM TO STAB THE HEARTS OF HER ENEMIES at least that’s how I interpreted it <3

Boom Box! Announces new series ‘Lumberjanes’
After the crazy first issue of Boom Box!’s first new series that was The Midas Flesh, they have just announced a all new second series called Lumberjanes.
This series, written by Noelle Stevenson and Grace Ellis with art by Brooke Allen, will focus on five girls attending a scout camp where there is some creepy stuff in the woods that they will probably have to fight.
The series is being billed as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Gravity Falls,” and also promises that they at some point fight a yeti. If you are not on board yet, then I question your taste in awesomeness.
Lumberjanes is set to come out sometime this spring.

LUMBERJANES, the new series I’m co-writing for BOOM! Studios, has just been announced!!!! I’m so excited, y’all. Girls, at camp, fighting spooky supernatural monsters. It’s gonna be amaze.

THAT SOUNDS FUCKING FAB

NEED o0o
