In which Marina Diamandis continues to be a queen and shuts down body policing
this one looks like it’s plotting something really evil
We kill the Zubatman.
The epitome of future us!
Staring Cookie as Angelyne and Noichi as Nina Hagen.
where the fuck are the boxer briefs for ladies
just make underwear that are just like boxer briefs but without the bulgy package area in front for fuck’s sake
you don’t need to make them shiny or lacy just make them comfy and streamlined without awkward seams and maybe in some basic colours that aren’t white or that awful “flesh tone” colour
I would wear the shit out of these.
How many tears did The Doctor cry?
Was it enough to fill two Ponds?
Or was it only enough to water a Rose?
Or about as much to… Donna.
if you’re a girl!!! download the app pink pad!!!!! it’s fabulous
or if you’re a guy that likes pink… i’m not going to rant all about gender roles, but this discourages me
the pink pad app monitors your ovulation cycles so i mean if you’re a guy and you have cycles to monitor by all means go ahead i guess
I just choked
Fun fact time: many of my old acquaintances still make joking comments whenever they see me wearing pink, because as a child (and honestly pretty much right up to high school) I would refuse to associate with any pink objects.
It wasn’t because I didn’t like pink, it was because since I appeared female I was supposed to/ it was immediately assumed that I did and therefore it pissed me the ever-loving fuck off. I was ashamed to like it, which is terrible because pink is an awesome color. But when you shove it down young girls throats it gets really old, really fast.
Give the child the fucking rainbow, and if they pick pink, it’s not because they are female and/or effeminate, it’s because they like the color pink.
Add ringlets and that second picture could literally be me at age three.
My three-year-old’s favourite colour is orange. You may imagine how much time I spend in the ‘boys’ section at Target because GOD FORBID I DRESS MY DAUGHTER IN SOMETHING OTHER THAN PINK, LILAC OR RED.
Mind you, that’s where they keep the pirate stuff so we’d be there anyway. But still.
My daughter loves pink and that’s okay„,but I always want her to have options.
And the reverse: My 8yo son’s favourite colour is pink, and he’s a boy’s boy (an additional descriptor I feel I always need to include because of the above). Give him a choice in multi-coloured balloons and he’ll grab the pink one. He gets frustrated that pink is relegated to “girl” status, because he can’t find items of clothing that are that colour that aren’t automatically associated with “But that’s for GIRLS!”.
This past winter I needed to find gloves for him, and the boys’ section of the store was out of the things. The saleslady was all apologetic that the only thing left were the “girls’” black gloves with magenta or purple striping, to which my son replied, grabbing a pair of the magenta-garnished ones, “These are fine, they have my favourite colour.”
I’m grateful for Easter fashions this past season, because the boys’s section of dress shirts had fuchsia among its offerings of bright colours, along with black+pink ties, and my son was really happy that it was something pink specifically for boys.
So yes, I get pissed that the girls’ sections contain almost nothing but pink (and its current alternative/complement, purple), but I also get pissed that my son can’t wear his favourite colour because he’ll get teased for it.
Gendered marketing is teaching people that there’s more of a difference between the genders than there actually is, and that’s NOT OKAY.
I tend to wear black. Not because I’m trying to be goth or “emo” or hide my femininity, but because I like black, it looks beautiful, it hides a lot when you’re like me and don’t have a lot of self-confidence, and a lot of the shirts I like have black backgrounds. My favorite pants were ones I bought for work and they’re far more comfortable than jeans - they’re black slacks. But I also like pink. I’d like it more if every shirt I found in pink for girls wasn’t covered in sparkles of one kind or another (mainly because they’re a pain to wash), and pink stuff wasn’t shoved in my face whenever I go to the store, but I still like the color. My favorite color is cerulean blue, thanks to Crayola crayons and being enchanted by that color crayon. I used to save it and be extra careful when I used it because I didn’t want it to be gone. It was just so beautiful. But I have confronted the fact with peers and family that liking black apparently means I want to have a certain image for myself (like being goth or emo or trying to hide the fact that I’m female), liking blue is some sort of rebellion, and liking pink is me attempting to demonstrate that I’m female. I just like the colors. I like green and red, too. What does that mean, society?
Yes this. I love pink, it’s my favorite color and has been since forever. This is probably related to the fact that I was given a great deal of pink because I’m a girl, but I liked pink so it worked. I was also frequently dressed in blue because it matched my eyes, and I hated blue. But only having the option of one or another shade of one color is not ok. Also I seem to remember we had more options for colors in the early 90s when I was a girl? I had clothes and toys in every color of the rainbow but orange and yellow because I hated them with a passion. I remember I had an outfit that was bright green leggings and a tunic, the pants were patterned with little stick figure kids in blue, orange, and purple, and the shirt had a single applique with the same stick figure kids. That was a great outfit, comfy and practical, and if I saw one like it today I’d get it for a niece in a heartbeat.
I remember as a child, having pink thrown at me, because my family thought “She’s a girl, so she’ll like pink.” Eventually, by age 7-8 I started hating it. Blue was my favourite color, and when I got teased for liking blue, I began to like green, purple, red, etc. Any other color but pink or blue. But really, I just like colors. Who doesn’t? Nowandays, I wear a lot of black, red/crimson/scarlet, and purple. I do take inspiration from the gothic fashion, but that’s not the reason why I like these colors. I cosplay Pinkie Pie, for Christ’s sake. I just don’t understand how and why color is associated with gender, and I never did back then, either.
“paper cuts or blowtorch” seems like a really wide pain range
great. tomorrow i’m gonna feel either a papercut or a blowtorch.
