Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.
(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).

i’m doing emergency $3 dollar, $5 dollar, and $10 dollar sketches, of whomever and whatever you want, so long as you have a reference!! you can find my art in here for references of my work! details can be discussed via my askbox.
I CANNOT DRAW HARDCORE NSFW, MECHA OR ANTHRO.
i’m also opening a donation button on my page to help pay my way! any support is incredibly appreciated and every dollar counts.
also, if you can’t donate or pay for commissions, reblogging this for signal boosting purposes helps!! thank you for everything <3
SO APPARENTLY THESE WERE DONE BY STUDENTS FROM A TAIWANESE HIGH SCHOOL (士商)
They must have a demon problem
Those are transmutation circles you idiot
i dunno looks a bit like someone’s interpretation of circular gallifreyan to me/
It’s literally taken directly from fullmetal alchemist. The first one is human transmutation.
Not every fucking fandom out there is superwholock shit
I LOVE THE VIDEO GAME BIOSHOKC BECAUSE YOU CAN SHOOT BEES OUT OF YOUR HANDS
Waiting hours for a cellphone to charge may become a thing of the past, thanks to an 18-year-old high-school student’s invention. She won a $50,000 prize Friday at an international science fair for creating an energy storage device that can be fully juiced in 20 to 30 seconds.
Everybody, remember this face.
Remember this name.
If this becomes a commonly used & highly lauded discovery, at some point a White guy is going to take credit, even if he has to word it like “Improved upon a previous…”
No no no
Fuck that guy.
Remember this brown girl.
What about her name? I keep seeing this all over my dashboard, but I’ve never seen it with her name in the actual post and not just in the link.
Eesha Khare. That’s who she is. Not just “Nameless-brown-girl-who-made-something.”
EESHA KHARE KICKING ASS!
guys we watched this in science class today
just watch it you won’t regret it
OMFG THAT WENT SO MANY PLACES THAT I NEVER COULD HAVE IMAGINED
i still haven’t found my berries
bu T I FOUND THis
has vine gone to far
For some reason a bird speaking Japanese is mildly off putting.
> Literal translation
Bird:” ‘Uhm Hello, this is the Ono family.”
Bird: “What’s wrong?”
Owner: “Abe-chan, you’re a little too early. Once the phone’s picked up, then properly say hello.”
Bird: “Okay, understood.”
Owner: “Do you really understand? I’m counting on you. Hello, this is the Ono family residence in Gifu.”]
Bird: “Okay, I understand!”
Owner: “Got it.”
> That’s clearly some sort of Pokemon.
> Off-putting? It’s like birds were meant to speak Japanese!
> For some reason it’s never occurred to me that birds can mimic languages other than English. It’s so cool, though!
