I finally decided to start reading the Harry Potter series…I finished the first two books in two days. I stay up late reading them, which is not helping my sleeping habits. These books are so good, I can see why people love them and why 10 year olds everywhere can’t wait to turn 11 to see if Hogwarts will send them a letter.
This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

Naomi Elishuv had played for a number of orchestras, including Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, but was forced to stop performing professionally two decades ago when she began suffering from a condition called essential tremor. During the procedure which was performed under local anaesthetic, surgeons asked Elishuv to play so her brain was active. The footage shows Elishuv shaking and struggling to play the violin before she is wheeled into surgery. Surgeons are then seen operating on her brain behind a huge plastic curtain. As soon as the procedure is complete, the violinist’s hands become steady, and she is able to play unhindered for the first time in 20 years.
Light Walls House
Located in Toyokawa city, the “Light Walls House” is a wooden house imagined by Japanese studio mA-style architects. White, minimalist and decorated with plants, this building has a structure which allows the light to reflect on the ground and on the walls in order to create patterns thanks to a trick of shadows and rays.
Hey, everyone here’s a gentle reminder to please go donate to the making of this documentary about beauty standards in Korea. It’s a pretty important film (in fact, I see people here reblogging gifs from the preview constantly without knowing where it’s from) and yet they still haven’t received enough money to make it in the foreseeable future. At the very least, signal boost.
I am signal boosting this with bated breath because I know how very little women of color are considered in white women’s feminism, and it makes me sad.
This is important to me because toxic beauty standards don’t apply equally to “all women”, nor does the laws of the patriarchy apply equally to “all women”. Simply put, white women have it easy. They are not and will never be put down for being white. For being women, sure, but not for being white. But black girls? Asian girls? Latinas? Indigenous women? Bi-racial women?
How much do white feminists understand the power of misogyny and racism combined? How much do you understand the extremity of white privilege, of white supremacy?
Or better yet, do you care?
I remember in Nice having a conversation about beauty standards and race with 3 white girls: 1 American, 1 Australian, 1 British…and I don’t think they could fully understand how I felt about beauty standards as an Asian woman.
