This is true. I saw a documentary about it. Men’s orgasm faces are allowed in teenage comedies rated PG13, but women’s orgasm faces can often push it into NC-17 territory, no joke.
This is pretty much the equation:
women receiving abuse = PG-13/R
women receiving pleasure = R/NC-17
Ugh. I did a speech on this shit, and watched the documentary about it. Pisses me the fuck off.
So absolutely ridiculous. Yes, please, show us being raped, murdered, mutilated; but don’t you dare show us engaging in sexual gratification. Because that would be…obscene.
equality needs to be a goal that everybody actively works towards.
Shit happened to Ferguson is happening in Hong Kong right now!
Students were just protesting peacefully for genuine democracy around Admiralty and Central, yet the police forced used pepper spray, tear gas and violence to disperse the crowd. According to the protesters, the police even raided a first aid booth with pepper spray.
Police around the world fucking up.

Men make $1.22 for every woman’s $1.
It interests me that even the most common simple measure of gender inequality is firmly based on male-as-normative …"
this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1
White people are still the ~standard so that’s not so revolutionary.
A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes
A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes
A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes
A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes
A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes
That’s some bullshit right there.
If you take away anything from this website, please let it be what I bolded ^
Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.
Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.

Here in the densely populated tumblr wilderness, oft we seek the matchbook igniters to lead us through the mire. Peter Sutherland is one such flicker, and moving through his blog is like a gauzy golden hour roadtrip through Arches when you’re just a tiny bit stoned. He’s a myth-maker whose oeuvre moves from photography to video to a vinyl overlay on an amethyst geode and then to a giant pyramid of bumper-stickered Nalgenes.
Inspired by the open road and all of the striking and horrifying things a lone wolf might stub his toe on out there, Sutherland’s work is comprised of the lifeblood of nomadic American iconography – burnt-up Chevy skeletons dolorous with weeds, sprays of light on craggy ochre cliffs, abandoned Shell station-cum-skateparks, the wide blue sky.
Yet underneath this imagery is a work that is visually and tangibly rife with the rebellion of a sub-cultured millennial — the threat of economic apocalypse and ravaged landscape that has us all wanting to slough our parents’ advice and reimagine ourselves as fuck-it-all back to the land rattlesnakes. Sutherland’s work is imbued with the freedom of a youth not yet abandoned, where skateboarders, surfers and nerdy cool kids stand as sentinels of a new freedom, lauding proudly the barbs and colors of a reclaimed Americana.
For Atelier Ace Issue — our new series of limited edition art prints — we asked Peter Sutherland to envision a print for us to share with our extended family. They are available here.
New Amsterdamers can find Peter Sutherland and other artists we admire at The New York Art Book Fair, opening tonight at MomaPS1.
Louboutins are redefining the “nude” pump— now available in five shades. Great initiative!
Thank you Christian Louboutin.
This is so important.
Yes, thank you for making more shoes literally none of us will ever be able to afford.
Fashion trickles down though. When a high-end designer like Christian Louboutin acknowledges that there should be variety in “nude” pumps, it will invariably be copied by cheaper and more accessible brands. This is a huge, positive thing.
Were his sympathies always there?
