Yeah, that Jon/Ygritte costume idea may actually be weather-appropriate for many people
Don’t forget we have to wake up Green Day tomorrow.
Ok just a reminder to everyone: If you’re planning on tweeting billie joe armstrong “wake up” or something tomorrow, DON’T. The song is about his father’s death and so it’s really personal and treating it like a joke isn’t the right thing to do. Plus he’s asked so many times for people to stop and no one listens so yeah. Please don’t do that.
- white feminists: let's break the glass ceiling! we deserve equal pay! we're just as good as men!
- woc and other minorities: yes, let's do that, but also, can we j-
- white feminists: did we ask you?
- woc and other minorities: we just think intersectionality in feminism is important! we deserve to be heard!
- white feminists: how dare you? our Lord and Savior Lena Dunham did not sacrifice her upper lip for this
look at this fragile delicate flower of a man look at how precarious his value and identity is wonder at the marvel that is masculinity
This makes me want to cry blood.
This is a prime example of patriarchy at work. He can’t handle holding a fucking purse for 2 fucking seconds before he has to bust out his “man bag” so he can feel validated by his male peers who are rooting him on for not wanting to be feminine. Is his ego and sense of masculinity so fragile he can’t possibly brush it with the slightest amount of femininity before he crashes and burns??Not to mention the fact that a symbol of feminity is being equated to a literal piece of shit.
or maybe he just doesn’t want to hold a fucking purse? god fucking damn it.
You’re right. We shouldn’t for anything in the world ever think about why he wouldn’t want to hold a purse, why he would feel it’s reasonable to drop it like it’s radioactive and then treat it both like toxic waste and a shameful secret, or why an audience of men would applaud him for treating it in this way instead of just holding the thing his wife asked him to hold.
Masculinity is too fragile to withstand investigation. We must protect it at all costs.
Also wasn’t pink originally a masculine color?
Plus like, I even pointed out how my boyfriend would rather sweat under extreme heat instead of using a handheld fan (which I carry everyday during the summer), but he’d easily hold an umbrella all day if it rains.
But here’s the deal.
When fans existed for hundreds of years, many men used and held them.
In fact it was thought as something belonging to masculine attire in the 18th century.
When the modern umbrella first came out in the western world, men were humiliated and laughed at whenever they were seen in public with one. Umbrellas were barely sold at all to the male audience. It went to the point where men would rather ‘rent’ an umbrella from a local store than be seen owning one.
But for some reason, after the 18th century, male fashion did a 180 and suddenly men thought that handheld fans were now disgustingly feminine, while umbrellas became suddenly ‘masculine’ and ‘acceptable’ to carry around in public.
So guys don’t have endure losing their mayun card when they have to hold their girlfriend’s purses. Because the concept of what makes an accessory ‘masculine’ keeps changing every time the planet earth blinks.
2 other drawings of Nines Rodriguez
- Every fan of VTMB will recognize the first scene. “Good effort” I named it. :-) The pic resolution is awful. :o
- The 2nd scene shows Nines in the 1930’s during the Great Depression. Still human… The enigmatic guy in the back would be his Sire.
When you’re a non-christian trying to shop for gothic clothes and all you see are shirts, dresses, accessories and pants covered with crosses.
And it just goes for MILES.
Like, people, there are awesome art styles that don’t have to involve crosses (even the St. Peter’s cross). Put a fucking snake skeleton on a t shirt, that would be rad and inclusive for all the apostate/muslim/atheist kids out there.It doesn’t have to be ALL about iconography.
