Shopping for clothes when you have big boobs is normally really annoying esp when you like drapey things or want something that cinches at the waist cause you always get stuff like this

Don’t get me started on t-shirts.

Katie Makkal Performs Her Poem “Pretty” at the 2002 National Poetry Convention

At the 2002 National Poetry Convention, veteran poet Katie Makkal gave a rousing performance of her poem “Pretty.” Although the video is almost a decade old, the message behind the poem still has relevance for young women growing up in today’s society. Makkal channels the fear every teenaged girl has growing up—the terror of being considered ugly, the desire to be rich, and the longing to fit in with peers…

One of my favorite dialogues from CSI is where Catherine & Sara talk about their parents telling them they were pretty.  Sara was always told she was smart, never pretty.  Catherine’s response was “You never thought you could be both?”

IN HAPPIER NEWS I’m gonna tentatively shoot for TJ&A omnibus edition release in February 2015

Lots of SQUEEEE!!

Another prep-doodle I liked. TJ openly expresses frustration a couple times in the side comic, which is something he kept bottled up during the main story.
I don’t know when this thing’ll be done; I’m kinda shaky getting back to comics, and I need to prioritize new projects over revisiting these boys. I can tell you it won’t be posted as a webcomic, but there will be a print version and PDF available. I’m shooting for within 6 months, though.

WooHoo!!

King said in an interview that this photograph was taken as he tried to explain to his daughter Yolanda why she could not go to Funtown, a whites-only amusement park in Atlanta. King claims to have been tongue-tied when speaking to her. “One of the most painful experiences I have ever faced was to see her tears when I told her Funtown was closed to colored children, for I realized the first dark cloud of inferiority had floated into her little mental sky.”

ignore anyone who tells you otherwise.

No white girls?

no

Why? You do t think white girls should be told they’re beautiful?

The amount of white whine in the notes…it’s ridiculous.

Every time we ask for the inclusion of young girls and women of color in pieces similar to this, where everyone is white, we’re told

"If you want representation then make it yourself and shut up about this!"

“Let the artist make whatever they want and include whoever they want! Freedom of expression!”

"If you need to see someone who looks like you in order to feel included then you are the real racist."

Yet all I see in the notes are:

"If you want equality you have to include EVERYONE including white girls and guys!"

“it’s pathetic that the only way you can feel good about yourself is by excluding others.”

No doubt they feel some type of way with their own bodies but what is dedicating a piece such as this to women who fall no where near the Eurocentric standards of beauty taking away from white women when they have so much representations and campaigns centered around them.

In case people like lifandiveira would like a simple explanation as to why white girls are not needed, go to images.google.com and type the word “beauty” and tell me what you get.

Seriously.

If you’re not blown away by the insanely disproportionate amount of white women depicted with a dash of women of color scattered about, then I don’t know what to tell you.

It is amazing how the exact same conversations happen again and again when women of color attempt to carve out space for themselves.

Even before I saw the notes I knew exactly what conversation I would find. This is beautiful and perfect.

And I didn’t even realize there were no white girls in this.

bigbigtruck:

Who knows! They’re definitely together for at least a little while; after that I can imagine possible futures branching off in every direction.

And in my head, they’re together forever!

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.”
