THE BAD GIRL AND THE LADY: FADER EXPLAINS HOW RIHANNA AND LUPITA NYONG’O'S DISTINCT STYLES ARE SETTING THE TONE FOR THE 21st CENTURY

(via rrrayne)

" So three Black women in maybe two thousand pages of women’s magazines and all of them biracial or racially ambiguous, so they could be Indian or Puerto Rican or something. Not one of them is dark. Not one of them looks like me, so I can’t get clues for makeup from these magazines. Look, this article tells you to pinch your cheeks for color because all their readers are supposed to have cheeks you can pinch for color. This tells you about different hair products for everyone—and everyone means blondes, brunettes, and redheads. I am none of those. And this tells you about the best conditioners—for straight, wavy and curly. No kinky. See what they mean by curly? My hair could never do that. This tells you about matching your eye color and eye shadow—blue, green, and hazel eyes. But my eyes are black so I can’t know what shadow works for me. This says that this pink lipstick is universal, but they mean universal if you are white because I would look like a golliwog if I tried that shade of pink. Oh look, here is some progress. An advertisement for foundation. There are seven different shades for white skin and one generic chocolate shade, but that is progress. Now let’s talk about what is racially skewed. Do you see why a magazine like Essence exists? "

" There is only one way to read, which is to browse in libraries and bookshops, picking up books that attract you, reading only those, dropping them when they bore you, skipping the parts that drag — and never, never reading anything because you feel you ought, or because it is part of a trend or a movement. Remember that the book which bores you when you are twenty or thirty will open doors for you when you are forty or fifty — and vice versa. Don’t read a book out of its right time for you. "

This sucks x infinity…

Primark have printed my sticker designs on a crappy t-shirt without my consent. They also used a patch from Hanecdote and a brooch created by Mimi Sotudeh. So disrespectful of our work to not even credit or ask us… If you are thinking of buying there, you should think twice.

 

signal boost! artists work so damn hard, art thieves deserve to have a pin set in their skin for each thing they stole!

Also the pink heart looks like a crappy edited version of cakeeater’s riot grrrl pin, except they replace “riot” with “candy” lololol what assholes.

uuuuuugh! :(

I had an idea for a song called “2005” which was basically just bowling for soup’s 1985 but its about this XVX girl in 2014 who used to be a scene girl in 2005 and how she misses just going to shows and getting drunk and shitty with other scene girls but now she just lectures people on tumblr all day.

Four young women born with abnormal or missing vaginas were implanted with lab-grown versions made from their own cells, the latest success in creating replacement organs.

All four of the women are now sexually active and report normal vaginal function. Two of the four, who were born with a working uterus but no vagina, now menstruate normally. (Photo credit: REUTERS/Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine/Handout via Reuters)
