My grandpa has Alzheimer’s so he has no idea who my grandma is but everyday for the last three or four months he brings her in flowers from their garden and asks her to run away with him and be his wife and everyday she says she already is and everyday the smile my grandpa gets on his face is the most beautiful heartfelt thing I have ever seen.
have you ever fallen in love with a song and put it on repeat for 8 days straight and literally bathed in it and memorized every word and breath and drum beat and guitar string and just married it because wow perfect and then overplayed it and got bored of it but still had a special place in your heart for it because i have
In February, I posted two pieces in Bed-Stuy on Tompkins and Halsey. These two pieces got the most attention of any pieces I’ve put up so far. Within a few days, someone had written his response to the work directly onto the posters. From there, a woman wrote a response to him. And it went on and, on with different hand-written comments creating this kind of interesting discussion. The pieces remained up until a week or so ago, when the phallic image was drawn. That’s when I decided to try to take them down.
The “Stop Telling Women to Smile” piece remained in tact enough for me to include it in the exhibition. I thought it was important to present in the show, so that people could view these written reactions.
I love when assertive women scare men to such an extent that they have to resort to infantile shit like this.
They think it will shut women up, but it really just fuels everything further, I hope they know that.
The “devolution” of the poster is more interesting to me than the originals, which I’ve reblogged before.
The fact that a man decided to comment on the poster physically, and was the first to do so, says a lot. Whenever women defend ourselves we get these counter arguments. We get people in general, and not just men, trying to cut down our personal initiatives. And when women, like on the poster, attempt to hold a real discussion we get the brunt of the “dick solution” where we are told that we hate men, we haven’t had a “dick that was good” or we get a penis drawn on the poster meant to make a social commentary about our “place.”
I’ve reblogged the individual posters before because I understand them as a victim of the suggestions. But I’m reblogging them now to show the attempt to keep women in their societal place in our culture.
An excellent example of men not getting the point about street harassment.
“You find our unwanted projections of our opinions of you to be bothersome? Well … well … well … DICKS, THAT’S WHAT! DICKS!!!”
Serious grade-schooler shit here. Grow the fuck up.
I’m kind of embarrassed by this as a guy. Although I do know we tend to put an undue amount of emphasis on our genitals as the solution to all of life’s problems. Being ornery? RIDE MY DICK! Lesbian? RIDE MY DICK! Depressed? RIDE MY DICK! Just got fired? RIDE MY DICK! *sigh*
And emphasis mine.
Yeahhh, this is a good example of why feminism still needs to be a thing.
All of the above. ALL OF IT.
Capricorn the Zodiac’s Late Bloomer
Capricorn are very much about soliciting their real place in the ‘real’ world. Their gifts lie in the realm of organization, pragmatism and ensuring efficiency found within the existing structures. Capricorn are a unique sign of the zodiac courtesy of their curious tendency to ‘age backwards’. Considered ‘late bloomers’ in astrology, Capricorn really come to life when they can sit back and finally enjoy the revenue from many years of hard work. They want to build something important in the world that stands as a testimony to their dedication and effort; and become eternally illuminated when they these projects finally see fruition. The comfort that comes with age is usually enough to free the Capricorn from their inborn feelings of responsibility, duty and unworthiness. By the time they are elders, Capricorns have the ability to really let go and delight in simple things in a childlike way.
The Capricorn life is filled with many lessons leading to the attainment of will power. Their ruler, Saturn is a powerful ally that throws these individuals many obstacles in path, though always providing the promise of immeasurable success once they are overcome. The early life of Capricorn seems harsh, with many conflicts arising with authority as well as within themselves. Typically reserved as children, they were often scared of expressing their true feelings and emotions. Young Capricorn are eager to shoulder adult responsibilities and feel more comfortable around people older people, and will seek out friendships with people outside their peer group on purpose. Sometimes Capricorn only allow themselves to express their inner child when they are almost too old to enjoy it.
In their 30’s, Capricorn finally begin to release hold of all the self imposed restrictions and limitations. They begin to allow himself to relax into life a little more and start growing into their own skin. The Capricorn youth can be plagued by the monologue of a vicious inner critic; the inner judge that is always quick to criticize and deliver a well timed reality check. As Capricorn ages, they learn to create that equally opposing voice; the voice that tells them how beautiful, intelligent and vital they are. With every birthday crossed off the years, the Capricorn becomes lighter, freer and truly blooms as the incandescent flowers they are.
