The question I’m asked most often as a defense attorney is whether I can tell if my clients are innocent or guilty.
I don’t care.
The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…
Girls don’t let anyone tell you loving yourself is vanity.
“You painted a naked woman because you enjoyed looking at her, put a mirror in her hand and you called the painting “Vanity,” thus morally condemning the woman whose nakedness you had depicted for you own pleasure.” ― John Berger, Ways of Seeing
psa if youre cis and someone asks for your pronouns:
- don’t say ‘whatever pronouns are fine!’
- dont say ‘you can call me eggplant for all i care’
- dont say ‘im a girl/im a guy’ instead of giving your pronouns
- dont get offended that we’re asking
WHEN I FIRST SAW THIS I HAD TO PAUSE IT SO I COULD LAUGH

It’s frustrating that a post like this could be made for every race. How about we stop generalizing everyone that’s a certain race into a category based on the actions of its extremists and idiots. Not all white people are fucking serial killers, racists and entitled shit heads. Every race has members that aren’t doing their part to have a positive influence on this world. But I’m really sick of seeing entire races defined and labeled by a portion. The more we villainize entire races of people this way, the further back we put ourselves from any progress toward resolutions. How about we respect (or don’t respect) people individually based on THEIR actions, not the actions of total strangers with the same skin color.
I want to know where all this outrage is when I’m being followed around a store. I want to know where all this “we need to stop making it about race” is when I’m getting called the N-word by men who look like your fathers, uncles, and brothers. Where is “one race one world” foolishness when the same aspects of our culture that is used to degrade us is now being marketed as “urban” and is now “edgey and chic” because it’s marketed to a white market. if you want post like this to stop start with yourself and people around you. call out racism and racist remarks, comments, and actions. don’t tell an oppressed group that they need to stop calling out their oppressors. I will not suffer silently so that your conscience can be clear.
You reminded me of the coffee stains on my sheets of paper, and how you artfully circled certain words written on my soul.
Did you think that placing yourself on my soul would not leave a mark on me?”
