friendly reminder that you don’t have to…

  • degrade men to support women
  • degrade heterosexuals to support homosexuals
  • degrade binary genders to support non-binary genders
  • degrade anything to support something else
I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.
Ernest Hemingway (via observando)
Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.
Pablo Picasso (via life-itself-is-a-quotation)
He who works with his hands is a laborer.
He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman.
He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.

Life either happens by design or default, you choose.

Supermodel Karlie Kloss was photoshopped to look less thin for a Numero campaign. There are so many things wrong with this.  Models are forced to be incredibly thin to fit a certain aesthetic, but when they do, they’re so emaciated that they have to be photoshopped to not look sick.Robin Hardy, a former creative director at Vogue, has commented on the practice of photoshopping to cover up the aesthetic and health costs of extreme thinness:
“At the time, when we pored over the raw images, creating the appearance of smooth flesh over protruding ribs, softening the look of collarbones that stuck out like coat hangers, adding curves to flat bottoms and cleavage to pigeon chests, we felt we were doing the right thing…
But now, I wonder. Because for all our retouching, it was still clear to the reader that these women were very, very thin. But, hey, they still looked great!
They had 22-inch waists (those were never made bigger), but they also had breasts and great skin. They had teeny tiny ankles and thin thighs, but they still had luscious hair and full cheeks.
Thanks to retouching, our readers… never saw the horrible, hungry downside of skinny. That these underweight girls didn’t look glamorous in the flesh. Their skeletal bodies, dull, thinning hair, spots and dark circles under their eyes were magicked away by technology, leaving only the allure of coltish limbs and Bambi eyes.”

I’ll never forget how the depression and loneliness felt good and bad at the same time. Still does.
