Miles McMillan for EDUN's Birds of Prey Campaign F/W 2012 filmed by Ryan McGinley.
Oh my god, that first one in particular. SO PRETTY.
These are gorgeous, and the model is awful pretty, but I’m not the only one who saw that first photo and thought, for a moment, that someone had made the most amazing mask/hat thing ever, right?
ngl, it was totally that top pic that tipped me over from “meghan doesn’t like birds — but that first one, omg” :D
When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?
Hint: It has something to do with people feeling entitled to making any woman their personal porn, even if it violates or humiliates her in the process.

i’m not a science expert. i’m not even a science novice. but that’s so interesting that these four would come up with interstellar travel when none of the 4 above are qualified as far as we know? reed richards in the mcu is just listed as a physicist, peter parker could only be linked with engineering + genetics, tony’s engineering, bruce banner is physicist in the 616 but i believe just radiology in the mcu.
know who IS an astrophysicist though?
know who has actually manipulated travel between realms?
STOP. ERASING. THE WOMEN.
Ding ding ding ding!
Like seriously, why isn’t pole dancing an olympic sport? This is freakin gymnastics. This is strength and skill. This is not sexual whatsoever. Why does pole dancing have to be so stigmatised as a sexual thing that only strippers do? I have great respect for all people who can pull this off. This is art and beauty right here.
This is absolutely strength and skill and it’s quite amazing.
But I’m also super-uncomfortable with the implication that the stigmatization of its origins is *okay*, that it’s *better* now that it’s suddenly “clean”, and that the women who developed it should be erased/removed from its context.
They made it. They deserve to keep being acknowledged for it. This is how women’s contributions get erased from history: because they’re the wrong kind of women, because they’re too sexy, because they’re from the wrong classes/ranks. Etc. Etc.
So let’s not do that.
me: goes to see someones blog
me: actually u kno what nvm
“ This dominant narrative surrounding the inevitability of female objectification and victimhood is so powerful that it not only defines our concepts of reality but it even sets the parameters for how we think about entirely fictional worlds, even those taking place in the realms of fantasy and science fiction. It’s so normalized that when these elements are critiqued, the knee-jerk response I hear most often is that if these stories did not include the exploitation of women, then the game worlds would feel too “unrealistic” or “not historically accurate”. What does it say about our culture when games routinely bend or break the laws of physics and no one bats an eye? When dragons, ogres and magic are inserted into historically influenced settings without objection. We are perfectly willing to suspend our disbelief when it comes to multiple lives, superpowers, health regeneration and the ability to carry dozens of weapons and items in a massive invisible backpack. But somehow the idea of a world without sexual violence and exploitation is deemed too strange and too bizarre to be believable. ”
And even more telling. When people (guys) complain about ‘realism’ in games or movies, they are not really talking about literal realism. That’s not what they mean. The word they are reaching for is verisimilitude - in other words: that which breaks the illusion.
When we say of a piece of fiction that contains dragons, flying suits of armor, or aliens that it is ‘realistic’, what we really mean is that it feels real - that the characters reactions, the world built around the fantastical elements and how the non-fantastical elements interact with them seems “true” to us. We look at it and nod and say to ourselves inside “Yes, that is how someone would react to seeing a giant monster” or “Yes, that seems like how society would react to an alien invasion” - the world around the made-up stuff is carefully designed and seems thought-out enough that we buy it emotionally, even if we know that logically it is nonsense.
So when someone complains that a medieval fantasy world does not feel “realistic” without the ugly oppression, dehumanization, and violation of women as a standard background element, what they are saying is that those details feel right to them. That the world, without that misogyny, is not emotionally satisfying. They are saying they need that there for the world to make sense.
THIS. This so hard.
A punk stops during a gay pride parade to allow a mesmerized child to touch his jacket spikes.
I lost control about reblogging this picture.

literally one of my favourite pictures ever
nothing more punk than letting small children touch your clothes spikes or hair spikes
this is one of the most beautiful things ive ever seen
