This is the main reason for my general annoyance with lack of size regulation in the fashion industry…
men’s pants are labeled by waist and inseam measurement. women’s pants are labeled by voodoo. even though i do not buy women’s pants, i can recognize this as objectively dumb.
THE NOTES ON THIS
because i can’t stress this enough. this is why i don’t let the numbers get to me. as jumpingjacktrash so eloquently said “women’s pants are labeled by voodoo.”
so when boys make fun of girls taking forever to shop and trying everything on
WE FUCKING HAVE TO OR NOTHING WILL FIT
I’ve witnessed this with me own eyes.
Well, one of the major differences with women’s clothing is the way juniors and misses pants are built. Juniors are built for individuals who are thicker in the waist, smaller in the thighs and legs. Misses are just the opposite. For example I have to two pairs of pants, one juniors one misses, both around the same size (juniors comes in odd numbers, but ya know) The juniors are ungodly tight around my legs, but the waist I can pull at least three inches away from me. That’s a bigger gap than pants are supposed to have. Women’s pants are ridiculous, just saying.
Also, if there’s one thing I learned from What Not To Wear, you don’t buy clothes for the size, you buy them for the way they fit. The number is just that. A number. You get what makes you look/feel good.
I think it’s important to see your art as a story.
Each image isn’t a stand alone piece or a trophy to be admired of your progress but it should be part of something that you are continuing to say and to articulate to people. Not to say that every piece you create needs to be deep , it could be pinups or cars or environments but it’s the way it’s presented and the stylistic choices you make in that art that sets it apart , it’s your vision which then becomes your story.
Which is also why I feel your art should be genuine because drawing from or bringing into existence something you haven’t felt or cannot empathize with makes it very difficult for others to empathize with your work.
It’s part of the reason that plagiarism (not to be confused with influence) breaks my heart -it’s people who feel like they have no story to tell and try and re-tell others but will never be able to.
straight boys are weak and pathetic, queer girls walk into the ladies changing room and see ten women naked, do they stare? do they say something inappropriate? do they make them uncomfortable? no because they have the common fucking sense to recognise when a situation is sexual and that people deserve the most basic level of respect to not be harassed, yet here we are banning shorts and low cut tops in school because straight boys are weak and pathetic
I like being alone.
I like drinking coffee alone, and reading alone.
I like riding the bus alone, and walking home alone.
It gives me time to think, and set my mind free.
I like eating alone, and listening to music alone.
But when I see a mother with her child, a girl with her lover, or a friend laughing with his or her best friend,
I realize that even though I like being alone, I don’t fancy being lonely.
- Every time I get my period: Wow no okay that was not a month.
instead of asking why Studio Ghibli makes so many movies about empowered young girls, we should ask ourselves why other studios don’t
Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something.
You know there’s not enough diversity on TV when someone can say “the black guy” and everyone knows who you’re talking about
I want [female characters] to be allowed to be weak and strong and happy and sad – human, basically. The fallacy in Hollywood is that if you’re making a ‘feminist’ story, the woman kicks ass and wins. That’s not feminist, that’s macho. A movie about a weak, vulnerable woman can be feminist if it shows a real person that we can empathize with.
where can i get one of those kim kardashian or paris hilton jobs where they just kind of pay you to exist
you mean one of those jobs where someone leaks a private sex tape, and after you’ve been humiliated and exposed to the entire nation and mocked and belittled for daring to have sex with anyone, you work really hard as an entrepreneur and entertainer and still get considered not respectable?
when did we replace the word “said” with “was like”
i think it’s really interesting and cool actually that language has shifted so that ‘said’ implies that you’re quoting, while ‘was like’ means ‘i’m doing a general impression of this dude’. i mean you can’t really harsh on someone when ‘she was like aaah!’ means exactly that, doesn’t it? she was doing something very similar to the particular scream being made. so, ‘like’ indicates that you’re dealing with generalities and inexact terms, and want to convey the gist of things rather than focussing on exact phrasing and technical details—which is pretty great for young people, who are still developing cognitively and thus not always great at stringing a coherent sentence together.
