In an effort to both allocate space for and document the existence of masculine women, photographer Meg Allen created a powerful series of portraits for an exhibit at Cafe Gabriela in Oakland, Calif.
Entitled BUTCH, Allen’s series not only represents genderqueer women for a broader, heteronormative audience, but reaffirms butch identity within the queer community at a time when “butch flight,” or gender transitioning, is arguably becoming more and more commonplace. It is, as Allen says on her website, “an homage to the bull-daggers and female husbands before me, and to the young studs, gender queers and bois who continue to bloom into the present.”
These are some good looking folks
Milwaukee based illustrator Boris Pelcer has created beautiful digital illustrations named after the English Romantic poet Lord Byron. Byronic characters, incapable of love, or capable only of an impossible love, suffer endlessly. They are solitary, languid & their condition exhausts them. To feel alive it must be in the terrible exaltation of a brief & destructive action (Camus, The Rebel, p.49). This series was created to capture the dark mysticism of Byronic characters.
"Pain does not take away from life. Pain adds a richness, an aching complexity that makes the beautiful moments even more beautiful. Pain is necessary, it isn’t something to always fear or run from & it is exhausting to do so, because you can’t avoid it. It is the essence of our existence, it is espresso being added to chocolate. On it’s own it can be bitter, it can burn your throat & make your stomach hurt, but it makes chocolate better, it makes it richer, it makes it bolder, just like pain does with life. So, no, I will not say no to even the most painful of experiences because through them I am able to find profound meaning in heartbreak, able to find joy & freedom whilst walking dirty streets at night, able to see the world in a sunset & feel my heart pulsing with life & so I will say yes, yes because I was put here with the ability to handle it, to taste all of the flavors. I was put here to feel, so go ahead, you make it hurt, you make it beautiful, because that, that is what I live for."
i feel so bad for the fedora
it started out as this great icon of feminism thanks to sarah berndhart and honestly a good hat (a good hat mind you not cheap shlock) does do wonders for making someone look dapper whether it be fedora or trilby (i slightly prefer trilbies)
and now it’s become shorthand for the very most obnoxious slime of society
i am sorry fedora. i am so sorry. humanity has failed you, you poor brave hat
The trailer for Lucy is such orientalist yellow peril garbage like???? boo hoo let us lament for 90 min about the strife of a poor blonde white woman being manhandled…
