A short list of current happenings that are more important than Justin Bieber’s arrest:
This little girl from Canada gets WAY too much media attention.
26 Male Survivors Of Sexual Assault Quoting The People Who Attacked Them
This needs more notes.
no one seems to care if they are guys
reminder that rape and sexual abuse happens to everyone, not just girls
reminder that rape and sexual abuse needs to be acknowledged no matter a person’s gender and “no one seems to care if they are guys” is a typical antifeminist theory that is disproven by the fact that this photo set has 100,000+ notes alone
I will reblog this whenever it’s on my dash.
this is perfect because i hate that people depict men as just sexual predators.
Illusions of the Body was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.
Imagery in the media is an illusion built upon lighting, angles & photoshop. People can look extremely attractive under the right circumstances & two seconds later transform into something completely different.
Within the series I tried get a range of body types, ethnicities & genders to show how everyone is a different shape & size; there is no “normal”. Each photo was taken with the same lighting & the same angle.
Celebrate your shapes, sizes & the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird & beautiful thing.

Corwin and I started dating quickly but deep love developed slowly and steadily over time.
I’ve thought a lot about long term relationships and love and why they work/don’t work, and why they even start at all. It doesn’t sound as good as “soul mates” or “love at first sight,” but I genuinely believe love is a choice you make- you decide to take a chance with someone and see where it goes. If you’re fortunate, and you work hard at it, the person you decide on becomes more and more amazing the more you learn about them, and the more you both grow. Hopefully you can grow together, and not apart.
All that bullshit about crazy love, about not being able to live without someone etc is just chemicals in your brain, like a drug. So fuck that! Look for someone you can create with. Look for someone who balances you and helps you and enriches your life and has the same life values. All of those things are intertwined and essential to LOVE but aren’t really talked about…Corwin and I have all of those plus physical chemistry. And every day I love him more :)
