There are a lot of people in this world named John. I am not one of those people. However, as it so happens, there are also a lot of people named Jessica, and I am one of those people. This is my tumblr, where I will find inspiration, complain and do some fangirling of the intense kind.

“‎’Slut’ is attacking women for their right to say yes. ‘Friend Zone’ is attacking women for their right to say no.”

And “bitch” is attacking women for their right to call you on it.  (via madgay)

People who think consent can’t be sexy haven’t seen the music video for Green Light by Beyonce, amirite? 

I never wanted to revisit these memories

catahstrophic:

I never wanted to revisit these memories or share any of this. With anyone. I didn’t want to discuss it with friends. I didn’t want to talk about it with my boyfriend. I shoved it so far back into my head that I believed I could move on from it. And in time, I have. But sometimes things come out…

"For the record, feminism by definition is: ‘The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.’

I started questioning gender-based assumptions when at eight I was confused at being called “bossy,” because I wanted to direct the plays we would put on for our parents—but the boys were not.

When at 14 I started being sexualized by certain elements of the press.

When at 15 my girlfriends started dropping out of their sports teams because they didn’t want to appear “muscly.”

When at 18 my male friends were unable to express their feelings.

I decided I was a feminist and this seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Apparently I am among the ranks of women whose expressions are seen as too strong, too aggressive, isolating, anti-men and, unattractive.

Why is the word such an uncomfortable one?”

Sam Pepper

edwardspoonhands:

So I didn’t make any official statement about Sam Pepper until today because I had a feeling that he was up to what I refer to as “shenanigans.” I figured that if I posted something and then he threw a curve ball, it would make whatever I said feel empty because it would have been condemning him…

Latest assignment completed! We had one week to illustrate any scene from the first chapter of Harry Potter (I almost had a heart attack from the excitement srsly). And because I love my Silhouette Cameo to death, I did papercuts of course.

Taking an illustration class in the midst of all of this GD thesis planning and job applications is really a breath of fresh air. I had so much fun with this one although the background I can’t do perspective for shit so I just made it warpy and whimsical gave me a lot of grief.
