One thing that drives me nuts about the lack of GSM representation is how there’s so much representation needed on SO MANY FRONTS that sometimes they almost clash.

We need more female characters who are just really close, emotionally intimate…

…while “the female gaze” is attracted by things like a naked, sweaty Chris Evans or Idris Elba, it’s also attracted by things like: men smiling in sweaters, men crying (DON’T LIE TUMBLR), barefoot fragile Sebastian Stan in the rain on Political Animals, men holding babies, men speaking foreign languages, Mark Ruffalo, and a whole bunch of weird stuff on Ao3 that I don’t even wanna get into. And that’s just “the female gaze as it pertains to men.”

This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.

favorite things about this

  • literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
  • the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
  • all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
  • that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.

I JUST DIED

I SEARCHED THIS POST FOR AGES OH MY GOD

I think a clear version of the nail polish is a brilliant idea. I want to clarify now that THE NAIL POLISH IS NOT FOR SALE YET. I read so on Undercover Colors Facebook Page: ”Thank you so much for the positive response and interest in Undercover Colors. We could not be more thrilled with the supportive feedback we’ve received so far! Many people are wondering where they can purchase Undercover Colors, and while we love the enthusiasm, we need to clarify a few items that may have been lost in all the media excitement of the past few days.
First of all, our product is not yet for sale. We are in the early development of our nail polish. One of our main priorities is to ensure that we develop a product that tests for a comprehensive set of drugs before we release it. Our proof-of-concept research has been very promising and we want to continue to build on this early success before we officially release a product in stores. Your continued support as we work through our research phase is not only appreciated, but crucial to our goal of developing the first effective deterrent to drug-facilitated sexual assault.Secondly, we are definitely considering a crowdsourcing campaign, like Kickstarter. Thank you for this suggestion. Our audience will be the first to know if and when this campaign launches.Lastly, we have been astounded and uplifted by your feedback. The support has been truly overwhelming! Unfortunately, we are a small company and we are not able to respond to every message individually. Please know that I have personally read each one, and I am blown away by your openness and kindness. We are committed to bringing this product to market in the quickest timeframe we can muster.If you would like to help us speed up the process, please consider supporting our research and development efforts. Right now our biggest need is in the research and development department. And while we have raised over $10,000 from personal donations which go directly towards R&D, more is needed for adequate and timely development. If you are interested in supporting this cause, please visit http://undercovercolors.com/undercover-colors—support-us.html. We have added a Paypal option here as well.We look forward to developing this great product as quickly as possible. Thank you again for your support and inspiration.All the best,Tyler Confrey-MaloneyCofounder and CEO”

IT GOT BETTER

Can a thin person have body image struggles? Can a thin person be at war with their self-image? Can a thin person hate to look in the mirror?

Absolutely.

And does that suck?

Absolutely.

But the difference between these negative feelings and fatphobia is this: The only person worrying about whether or not I’m meeting beauty standards is me.

And that’s not the same for fat folk.

When you’re not thin, other people on the beach actually do take offense. When you’re not thin, people really do think that you shouldn’t be in a bathing suit. When you’re not thin, people really do make your body their moral obligation.

And while your internal struggle is real and significant, the point is: You might hate your body, but society doesn’t.

That’s thin privilege.

Let’s Talk About Thin Privilege — Everyday Feminism (via samanticshift)

You ain’t got people legitimately denying you job and educational opportunities because of the fact that you are thin.

You will not have people taking your picture in disgust and have them use it as ‘motivation’ to not be like you.

You are represented in all forms of media in an overwhelmingly POSITIVE light.

Plain and simple. There is no place in this world where thin people are not put up as the ideal.

So can we stop acting as if someone being individually teased for being skinny is the same as the systematic way that fat people are told their bodies are always wrong because morality?
