Reblogging because I mentioned this study in a post the other day and someone reblogged & replied insinuating that I’d made it up, but I didn’t have the citation on hand right then. As I said then: rape culture is what teaches rapists that they aren’t rapists.

^ bolded for emphasis

The gross thing with this is though it’s completely disregarding the fact that there are female rapists. They aren’t saying “Male rapists” they’re saying “Rapists” insinuating that all rapists are men.
And it’s fucking gross because 40% of all rapists are women.

They /are/ saying male rapists? They are only talking about men in these statistics - so they’ll only be talking about male rapists. 1882 men were questioned. 120 men answered that they have raped people.

At no point are they just saying that only men are rapists - this infograph is only /looking/ at male rapists.

If it had been asking 1882 people (gender non-specified) and then went on to say that 120 men answered that they have raped people. And if the infograph had disregarded information they had collected from other genders - then you could call this “gross”, because that is a misrepresentation of information and is also trying to pull the wool over people’s eyes.

You’re getting digusted by the presentation of specific information that is not skewered or insinuating anything beyond the fact that out of 1882 men - 120 men had raped people.

The iconic women of the DC Universe have seldom looked bolder or more beautiful than they do in these pin-up illustrations by Ant Lucia, which have been making the rounds online recently. And now, Quantum Mechanix is releasing 10 of them as art prints. We’ve got an exclusive first look, including a few you’ve never seen before.

We’ve featured a ton of collectibles from QMx before, including Art Nouveau Firefly prints, but these are still pretty special. According to QMx, “Each DC Comics Bombshell will be rendered on a museum quality 18”x24” art print and will be priced at $14.95.” You can preorder the first five prints (Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Batgirl, Stargirl and Mera) today, and another five will be available for preorder in about a month.

Mr.Pearl, born in 1962 in South Africa, is the most amazing corsetier of this time. His corsets are made without any form of modern technology and it can take up to several months each to construct. He started wearing corsets himself when he was 30 years, after seeing pictures of Fakir Musafar. (via Mr. Pearl, Ethel Granger and Stella Tennant, what a waist….. | A.G.Nauta couture)

[New Post] Kiss Me Deadly Spring/Summer 2014

While the photos may at first bring to mind Marie Antoinette, the shoot is actually based on the story of Julie d’Aubigny(a.k.a. Mademoiselle Maupin or La Maupin) who was a 17th century opera singer and swordswoman. She was also bisexual and known to wear men’s clothes.

Amazing historical costumer Kelsie Beaudoin (http:/eatsleepwritesew.blogspot.com) sent me an e-mail a few weeks ago asking if she could replicate my Cinderella gown from one of my fairytale portraits. Of course I said absolutely! I was thrilled she felt so inspired by my artwork… and even more so when she said she wanted to make it FOR me! What an incredible early birthday present! It just arrived, so I had to run out immediately and get some pictures in it!

Coincidence?! I Think NOT!!!

Dude.

My dad was telling me about these girls at his old college who invented a nail polish that paints on clear, and if you stir your drink with your finger with the nail polish on, it will react with the “Date Rape” drug and turn red.

Dude. It’s genius.
