Just wanted to share an photo article I’m sure you’ll have already received. This is Howard Schatz’ images of Female Athlete’s from the HuffingtonPost, originally appearing in his 2002 book, “Athlete”. The article states that the images have become popular again to remind us “the diversity of women’s bodies.” I think seeing these powerful and graceful women’s bodies - real bodies that have been shaped by hard work and determination - makes clear just how different builds are, even among the physically fit. Looking at the line up, I recall some of the drawing tutorials I’ve come across for depicting people of larger size and with different body types. I understand that a female super hero will more than likely be physically fit but even among the physically fit there is great variety as we can see in these photos. I hope these serves as a resource to artists and as inspiration to women and girls to see that there are a variety of shapes even among the physically fit.
I remember linking to this before but not so explicitly. I think this is a nifty photo spread for people to get an idea for the diversity of (abled-bodied) athletic women’s bodies, so I’m putting up again. :)
I just want to write- not stories- but massive meta essays about Cities and their own private culture. I mean, this is a network of immortal creatures that live for centuries and have so much knowledge. Humans’ culture changes so quickly that I don’t see them bothering to try and keep up in the…
This is lovely.
I want all the essays.
ALL THE ESSAYS.
I’m kinda over the term “ally.” Between Tim Wise’s recent (but not new) bullshit, a recent visit to a college where some so-called allies don’t even understand basic racism 101, and the constant cookie-seeking of people who just can’t do the right thing unless they are sure they’re gonna get some kind of credit for it, I’m done.
Allyship is not supposed to look like this, folks. It’s not supposed to be about you. It’s not supposed to be about your feelings. It’s not supposed to be a way of glorifying yourself at the expense of the folks you claim to be an ally to. It’s not supposed to be a performance. It’s supposed to be a way of living your life that doesn’t reinforce the same oppressive behaviors you’re claiming to be against. It’s supposed to be about you doing the following things:
- shutting up and listening
- educating yourself (you could start with the thousands of books and websites that already exist and are chock full of damn near everything anyone needs to know about most systems and practices of oppression)
- when it’s time to talk, not talking over the people you claim to be in solidarity with
- accepting feedback/criticism about how your “allyship” is causing more harm than good without whitesplaining/mansplaining/whateversplaining
- shutting up and listening some more
- supporting groups, projects, orgs, etc. run by and for marginalized people so our voices get to be the loudest on the issues that effect us
- not expecting marginalized people to provide emotional labor for you
This is by no means a comprehensive list. But most “allies” aren’t even getting these things right.
So, henceforth, I will no longer use the term “ally” to describe anyone. Instead, I’ll use the phrase “currently operating in solidarity with.” Or something. I mean, yeah, it’s clunky as hell. But it gets at something that the label of “ally” just doesn’t. And that’s this: actions count; labels don’t….
I’ve heard “straight sidekick” proposed because it more accurately represents the ideal power dynamic in opened queer spaces (and makes it so queer people are superheroes).
For the callback they made me learn ‘Defying Gravity’. I was doing really well, then I totally cracked on the high, high note at the end. I screamed ‘F***!’ at the top of my lungs. Then, without the piano player, I sang the note again to show that I could actually hit it and I kept going. (Director) Joe says that’s what got me the role. He could see that I was able to play a witch. - Idina Menzel
