Inspiring! Open carry demonstrators protest police violence in Dallas. Members of the Huey P. Newton Gun Club march through the streets of South Dallas in protest of police violence in their community. I am sure liberals would accuse these folks of being white racists. Always remember, gun control is racist.
Spread the word! #BlackOpenCarry
It helped in Nevada. The BLM backed down because all of America was watching to see who would slip up first. Rather than bringing in riot police against armed protestors in Nevada, the Federal government instead backed off.
That may not always be the case, but when your civil liberties are on the line, peaceful disobedience is necessary if it means the protection of your community and everyone’s rights.
I can’t even express how happy these images make me.
I love seeing people stand up for themselves. More power to them.
People in Asia who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) often find themselves victims of violence from family members, who in fact are often the main perpetrators, according to a recent report by the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC).
The report interviewed people from Malaysia, Japan, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and the Philippines over three years.
The high level of violence from family members was one of seven key findings and had the greatest impact on the victims. This violence was not only physical, but also emotional and sexual.
Grace Poore, IGLHRC’s Asia programme coordinator and the main coordinator of the research project, said that because of the violence from family along with discrimination from outside perpetrators there was no relief for the individuals.
“What stood out was that in countries that had a dominant religion and where it was being enforced in a way where people’s dignity, people’s rights and ability to be different, there was definitely greater violence. Whatever was going on outside the family seemed to be mirrored or reflected back within the family,” Poore told IPS.
Aaahh so yeah. I’m nothing amazing at trees, but my friend Huispe has been asking for this for such a long time now, I decided to finally do it.
Hopefully it can be useful for any of you out there <3
(there’s prolly plenty of typos in there too but I am just so tired right now aughhh)

Bonus points if you always stay gender neutral when talking pro-choice online.
except that guy brought his dick out in front of a bunch of RAPE SURVIVORS
and as far as i know slut walks are for rape survivors and have absolutely nothing to do with pro choice
Ignoring important details and painting angry rape survivors as bad
Ignoring the fact that there are also guys in the fucking crowd
tacking on stuff about exposed skin and including trans/nb people in abortion discussion as if they’re bad or silly
~*just pro life things*~
There are also several people with male bodytypes in the crowd?
It’s a two-fer! Courtesy of @dcwomenkickingass, and specifically this post, I had to do an edit of these, while my storyboards wait.
I’m not going to go into long explanations here, I hope the drawings do speak for themselves. In the first case, it’s a Land being Land, although I do have to say that he did give a butt to Silk, as opposed to his usual ablation of hips and gluteus maximi. However, he unfortunately did it wrong.
Artistic anatomy is all about drawing structure, from the inside out. Your muscles by themselves can’t look right if they aren’t placed on top of a properly proportioned skeleton. Boobs won’t look right if they aren’t drawn as following the curve of the ribcage, its center line, or the movement of the arms which either pull or push on the pectorals on which the breasts hang. The arms back mean the shoulders are lowered, and the angle of the hands will be different since there’s a 3/4 turn on the torso. It shows that Land is drawing by guessed shapes, copied contours and practiced repeated motions. There’s no real structure underneath his shapes.
And if we look at the legs, I can only picture Kitty Pride phasing out of a wall: the legs look like they got mangled up to look like stumps. But even structure-wise, there is no thought put into whether the pose actually works, which is why it looks so clumsy. The legs should be reversed due to the line of action that’s in the torso but not followed through into the pelvis and legs. And I’ve been using the coil technique a lot in order to make my volumes work - it should be obvious by the roughs above - which help me figure out things like foreshortening.
Silk too was a problem of lack of structure, proportions all over the place, and lack of weight and purpose, but it felt moreso than Spiderwoman. I used the same pose Land did but worked out the skeleton first, using rotation arcs in order to properly proportion the length of the various limbs. I don’t know these characters and I might not have used these poses, but Silk here definitely looks like she’s dancing.
The variant cover by Manara looks like a pose right out of porn, pelvis up and cheeks spread, costume looking like body paint, and it makes me very uncomfortable. She doesn’t look like a superhero about to strike, she looks like she’s about to get… well, it’s a porn pose. This is sexualisation. It also reminds me of the Dog Bone sexy shape.
So I turned the pose sideways to figure it out, and to see what would work better. The sideways pose as is, as you can see, is angled to do quite the opposite of ass-kicking. Were she to try to leap from that pose, she’d fall flat on her face. The second pose is the “coiled like a spring”, but in the camera angle of the cover, it’s an ugly, ugly pose. So I tried to do something in-between, and just by making the pelvis horizontal and lifting the torso off the ground, I’ve managed to move the center of gravity so her weight is on her feet instead of her knees, she can use her arms to maneuver in most directions, and you still get an interesting body shape to look at. I think this works better, and much more ready to spring into motion.
Wanted also to say thanks for all the reblogs, likes and recent follows! I appreciate each one of them, and it’s because you’re still sharing and commenting that I came back to do this. However I’m still really busy! I won’t be posting a lot, but I do plan on posting more than I have. Back to storyboards for me!
Question reblogged from with 17 notes
Anonymous said: Could a girl beat a guy in a fight if she went for the balls? Have you ever kicked a guy there?
I’m positive it depends on circumstance. When I found out my ex-boyfriend had cheated on me, I gave him a swift knee to the crotch and I can tell ya: I won that one.
That is actually not ok :( violence is never the answer. Violated bodily/physical integrity…
Never apologize for your fluency in english.
If you have a different mother tongue, you are under no obligation to know english at all, let alone fluent english.
Never let anyone make you feel bad for not speaking proper english.
Be proud of your mother tongue.
Why should we learn their language when they mock and refuse to learn our own.
washing your boobs is the most fun part of showering by far because when they are soapy they are so slippery and soft and it is the greatest form of entertainment
and with one single post, you’ve given every straight male and homosexual female a boner.
I like putting the soap bar between them and seeing how far I can launch it. I busted a light that way once tho.
That-that sounds pretty impressive, actually
