You know, the one that gives housewives/full-time mothers a pension— wages for housework?
It’s ONLY A HUGE VICTORY FOR FEMINISM, SOCIALISM, AND WOMEN OF COLOR. Not a big deal or anything. Tumblr is mysteriously silent about this.
ABOMINATIONS - set 2!
Marodra and Caterbra!
its offical, Marodra is my favourite of the ones ive done :) i love lionfish, so i thought I’d try and use them for the fins.
seriously guys, it’s so much fun!
Caterbra looks like a variant psychic Prawn strain from District 9.
“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her. She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly. “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.”
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”
this is why performance art is important
So every single person who told me ‘ignore them they’ll go away’ and ‘you can’t let them know they bothered you’ and ‘They’ll stop if they don’t see you react’ and all that bull shit, my entire school career, I want you to look good and hard at this.
I want you to think about what you said.
What you keep saying.
What you are telling your children.
You are making them powerless.
No, this is a variation on a circle parry and a counter circle parry. Both are commonly taught in French and Italian style foil fencing.
A circle parry is when you avoid your opponents blade by moving your blade around theirs in a circle. A counter circle parry is circling around your opponents circle so that they can’t get their blade past to stab you.
When two fencers know each other well, this often happens. It becomes a game of chicken, it only ends when someone is willing to risk leaving an opening so that they can launch a different attack.
The foil version of this happens at least once a practice on my college fencing team. The only difference is that the blades are horizontal rather than diagonal.
Bolded for sadness

4 Something that never fails to make you horny.
Sadly, my last relationship ended over a deep bout of depression, which took away any and all feelings of sexual craving. In normal circumstances I’d say intense makeouts.
10 What is the fastest way to make you horny?
Kiss, lick, or bite my neck, or suck on my fingertips.
25 Biggest turn on?
31 Best sexual complement you ever got?
Eh… I fail to recall any one right now.
35 What’s your favorite part of your body?
Naught stands out to me.
59 How would you feel about taking someones virginity?
No qualms if the age gap were reasonable. I’d patiently give them all the time and guidance they needed.
71 Do you feel comfortable going “commando”?
Never do, but I think having my family jewels freely ambling around my pants would not be the epitome of comfort…
For those of you who don’t understand archaeology, I have made a diagram.
A really powerful video on sexual assault by my university. Please signal boost!
