Hello, there. This is the place where I collect things that I enjoy. I hope you get some enjoyment out of them, also.

Consent means to give permission.
It is both people’s responsibility to get consent from their partners. Everyone has the right to decide whether they want to have sex or not.  
Consent is…
·        Freely given — no pressure, no manipulation, and no asking if it was ok to do halfway through or after the fact.
·        Informed — telling them about any STDs they should know about, being honest about using condoms and birth control, and being honest about whether you’re sexually active with other people.
·        Something you can take back — it’s ok to stop or change your mind at any time. Saying “yes” once doesn’t mean saying “yes” forever, or “yes” to other sexual activities.
·        Enthusiastic — being excited about it, not just letting it happen.
When people think about consent, “no means no” often comes to mind. But saying “yes” is really important, too. A straight-up “yes!” means that no one has to guess or assume anything, and you’ll know they’re really into it.

The most fun a poor art history major can have without selling their soul for the ability to travel the world. 

Google maps lets you go in places now: Musee d’Orsay, The Met, Versailles, all of the places above, and tons more. I am pleased.

The Italian photographer Chiara Goia’s photoseries, "Sculptor’s Village" captures views of studios or workshops in Don Cheng—a village in china known for the reproduction of famous classical sculptures from the canon of western art history.  Goia’s image are evocative of minute figures of marble cutters and artists found in the corners of works by 18th-century painters such as Hubert Robert. At the same time, these contemporary photographs question the idea of the original art work and blurs the distinction between craftsmen, sculptors, artisans and artists— a debate that reaches all the way back to the suppression of the artisan’s guild, Académie de Saint-Luc in Paris at the end of the 18th century. Would you say that these new copies are any less authentic than 18th or 16th-century copies of Greek and Roman works?

BREAKING: Here’s the tweet that could lead to a new grand jury in Ferguson, MO. 
#Ferguson: @shaunking took screenshot of tweeter @thesusannichols who claims to know juror on #MikeBrown #DarrenWilson grand jury & appears to be receiving leaked information. King says that within seconds of posting this, her friends told her to delete it & she did but not before it was screenshotted. She has since deleted her entire account but King says they checked & she is indeed a #STL resident w/ years’ worth of tweets from there. “If true, her tweet not only reveals a leak in the grand jury, but gives us an ugly glimpse into how things have gone so far. This person who posted it on twitter & her contact on the grand jury must be fully & completely investigated & removed if it’s true.”-@shaunking

You can’t pick and choose what parts of feminism you want. You can’t support your queer sisters but not your trans sisters. You can’t support your fat sisters but not your sisters of colour. Being a feminist means creating a positive and equal space for women. The second you start excluding women based on which characteristics you do or do not find appealing you have defeated the whole point of being a feminist.
