It’s really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity and what it is to be a woman. It’s still something that I don’t have all the answers for but I would like to make a bit of a difference; do something, anything, that causes people to have more sense of equality….
Imagine; I used to have really long blonde hair, always wearing heels, lots of make-up. I had been someone who was highly feminised and had chosen to look that way, partly because I was 6ft 3in but also I was into that aesthetic. I knew it had to be stripped away. I knew this would be an important part not just for my work but in terms of my own development, because I would be confronting elements of myself that I didn’t want to confront. It was actor’s vanity and personal vanity. To see yourself displayed as unattractive, large, masculine, it’s quite tough… But I know it’s just perspective. A social conditioning that causes us to view these traits in a woman in a negative way, but it’s still hard to watch myself even now. (x)

You Are the Chosen Ones You Lazy Shits
I usually try not to swear in the titles of my blog posts, but let’s be real here this issue ought…
Go to college they said. It will help you in the workplace they said. You will make more money they said.
But they didn’t say anything about student loan debt, other than the vague mention of how you will acquire some that eventually you’ll be able to pay off with the incredible money you’ll make since you have a degree. They didn’t say which degrees would actually earn more money. They didn’t tell us that if you want to pursue a career in something other than business you’ll probably go broke trying and spend years paying it off and being miserable because on top of real world expenditures like rent, gas, food, and clothes you will be paying hundreds of dollars a month for that ‘magical money making degree’.
Change the world they told us. Make a difference. It’s up to you. You are the chosen ones. But also fuck your generation. You are selfish narcissistic bitches who are undeserving. We fucked up the world so fix it. Even though we don’t give two shits about you.
Angelina Jolie had a double mastectomy, in case you hadn’t heard. How dare she remove those ticking time bombs from her chest, amiright? Like, hasn’t she learned by now that her body is public domain and we all get to vote on what she does with it? Sheesh, how selfish can ya get.
