Today in science we learned that you can never gain cold, you can only have an absence of heat; and it made me think that maybe hatred doesn’t exist, and there’s only an absence of love.
this is the realist shit I’ve ever read

Hi guys, I’d like to do some commissions if anyone is interested. I need to save up, so I’m trying to earn extra money however I can.
I will only take payment via Paypal, and I’m willing to draw/paint pretty much anything except MLP, anthros or graphic pornography. Please message or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) about what you’d like to commission, and we’ll go from there!
If you’re not interested in a commission, reblogging this post would also help a lot. Thank you! ❤
The Duchess (2008)
so yada yada people are upset about Merida getting sexified and glitterfied , it upset me too
it peaked my interest so i looked up the rest of the redesigns
pretty much every single redesign of all eleven princesses has them thinner and with more makeup and so much sexy hair i cannot
mulan, tiana, and jasmine all have lighter skin. pocahontas isn’t as bad in that department but um HELLO do you see what she’s wearing? like wtf it’s worse than any ‘indian’ costume i’ve ever seen. racist stereotypes like woah.
these redesigns are just gross and i wish people would get just as upset about this as they do about merida
This is what I was referencing in my two cents about Merida.
And the kicker is, they were aware of the outrage when the designs were first debuted and edited Mulan’s design. Yet they continued on with the rest. Since they clearly don’t care very much about what we, their audience and a portion of their target market, are saying, I sincerely hope their bottom line suffers because then they might realize that the Disney Princesses we love are role models, not just pretty (homogenized) faces, and their marketing should reflect that.
That is a very valid point. Heels historically have only served as a marker of status or aesthetics (although they were originally made for men) rather than as a practical garment. They can be painful and awful sometimes but that doesn’t mean women aren’t choosing to wear them for their own benefit, not because society is telling them to or because men expect them to because it’s sexy, which is the crux of his point with that series. Heels may not support a person in a basic-level-of-comfort way but they can be a source of confidence (it does feel badass to balance in 5” heels all day and the sound they make when you walk makes you feel like a boss) and people don’t just wear them because they feel obligated to.
The main issue I take with that series is that he clearly didn’t listen to what women were actually saying about these undergarments. He made an assumption based on the marks such garments create (particularly garments that do not fit the model, as any trained eye can tell you) and created a dehumanizing series around that idea. The idea is not a new one but it is an incorrect one that is feeding a widely-believed misconception that’s negatively effecting people who do wear women’s undergarments.
proooooobably shouldn’t be uploading this, but the lack of art on my tumblr is getting drastic.
so, meet thirsa. this is an original character i’m planning to use for an interactive comic later on this year, but for now it’s part of my entrance projects for art school. i’ll upload the outfit design and stuff when it’s done. i won’t reveal what the story is about yet, but it’s set in a sort of post-apocalyptic setting.
also, i won’t be drawing much the next 2-3 months because i’m FINALLY AFTER 6 GODDAMN YEARS finishing high school. who came up with the dutch education system anyways.
(but i can probably sneak in some fanart sketches)
Justin Bartels, Impression.
‘The series focuses on the clothing that women think they should wear, or are told what to wear, to impress someone in a sexual manner. There is a physical mark that is left from these clothes, showing the discomfort women go through.’
I will never understand this trend of men feeling the need to comment on how torturous women’s undergarments must be. You definitely aren’t the first man in history to make that presumptuous mistake either.
Justin, dear, I expect you’ve never been a 38DDD and felt the wondrous support of a well-constructed corset or the joy of finding a bra you can actually run in without your own body causing the pain, not the undergarment. If you actually want to show women’s discomfort, I would recommend looking at the discomfort caused by dehumanizing images that decapitates the photographed subject.
