Are there any witches who don’t use circles regularly?
I’ll add to the chorus of “I don’t”.
Amazing resonance experiment with salt
Using a vibrating metal plate connected to tone generator, Scientist Bruss Pup performs scientific magic by seemingly controlling and manipulating grains of salt to dance in specific patterns.
GUYS I DONT BELIEVE YOU UNDERSTAND HOW AMAZING THIS IS FUCKING LOOK AT IT.
IF YOU DON’T THINK THAT’S THE TIGHTEST SHIT YOU CAN JUST GET RIGHT OUTTA MY FACE
Here’s some photos from my senior show, All At Once. Thought I should share it on here.
This is intense!
ugh. that dinosaur porn picture i posted a million years ago is going around again. the one with the person humping the t-rex.
i hate it when people start reblogging that again because they all have really stupid urls and keep adding “lol” to it and apparently tumblr thinks i need to know about that.
The long awaited.. PRINCE AND THE PRINCESS…
My final project for my book arts class. Hope you enjoy ;o;
I LOVE this! The art is great, the story is awesome. I like that the swordfighting princess can remain a princess and still become a knight.
Yet even so, it does bother me how much gender is tied to gendered activities. My parent’s generation of feminism saw trans issues through this lense. If I wanted to be a princess, sew, and wear dresses they would have understood that and been supportive. But they saw that as the only reason to transition - to be able to do things that are denied to you by gender. From that perspective, transition is the backup plan, but the primary solution would be to dissolve gender restrictions on activities - the “solution” of telling the young princess that princes can sew and paint and wear dresses too! The thinking is that would remove the need for transition. That’s more or less what my parents did. I was allowed to play with dolls, wear pink, and do anything I wanted, and they believed there would be no reason to transition because they would support me to be a boy and do those things.
I do love this story. I appreciate that the dress wearing princess can be feminine and strong and a powerful leader. I appreciate she doesn’t just want to do princess things but to be a princess — and that’s made clear by the other princess who’s not interested in becoming a prince. I just wish there could be a story like this with a young trans girl who wants to sword fight and do archery or whatever it is that’s coded as “boy things” and still gets to become a princess. Because the more we get sweet wonderful stories about little trans girls who love dresses and little cis girls who don’t, the more I begin to wonder why gender variance seems to only ever be for cis women.
Even now, I have folks who question my gender because of my butchness. Gender variant cis (or cis-ish) women get to be tomboys, butches, bois, or masculine of center. Gender variant trans women only get to fail at femininity.
Oh, nothing, just Tobi dropping some truth onto your collective heads….
BIG PHOTOSETS FOREVER FOR THEY ARE MUCH HARDER TO IGNORE / a lot of these don’t have hi-res versions available, but i still want to post them
This was not an exaggeration. The government ignored the issue of HIV/AIDS for years before anything was done. Gay and Queer communities had to form their own clinics because no government agencies cared for them. Back then, being diagnosed was equivalent to a death sentence or extreme debt and poor quality of life/a significantly shortened lifespan.
Things got so desperate that people literally had “Die-Ins”— in contemporary usage this refers to masses of people simulating death in order to protest something (like the War in Iraq). In this case, however, fatally sick people would literally lie down in public places and protest with what little energy they had left until they died. There is some footage of a church Die-In in the documentary Beyond Stonewall. The middle image here of that person’s jacket is not an extreme political statement; it’s what people had to do because they had no other options.
queer politics aren’t all hrc t-shirts and shiny lobbying. So many people have already forgotten this extremely recent history.
