OHHHHHHH it was about my hair wrap, you think?
having hair in my face is a pet peeve of mine and I like the way it looks, so
Why are you such a wigger?
I had to google that
and I, uh
I don’t think I am, at all?
but hey, think what you want anon :~)
edit: hey, if you genuinely believe that I’m being disrespectful to a culture, please let me know and I’ll take what you say under consideration! :)
Rules: Just insert your answers to the questions below.
a brief explanation of some recent posts:
wizard battle is an online character design competition, of sorts.
Wizards will be divided into 1on1 battles in a randomized bracket. The images of the 2 battling wizards will be posted on twitter. Spectators will be given 24 hours to pledge their power (vote) for one wizard. At the end of the 24 hour period the votes will be tallied and the victorious wizard will be announced. The victors will proceed to the next round.
so yeah! please vote for my creations, Nawat and Clown!
It is certainly not realistic to hope that a majority of men…will soon see the light and find that it is in their own self-interest to grant complete equality to women… After all, there are few areas that are really “denied” to men…: men who have a need for “feminine” involvement with babies or children gain status as pediatricians or child psychologists, with a nurse (female) to do the more routine work; those who feel the urge for kitchen creativity may gain fame as master chefs; and of course, men who yearn to fulfill themselves through what are often termed “feminine” artistic interests can find themselves as painters or sculptors, rather than as volunteer museum aides or part-time ceramists, as their female counterparts so often end up doing;.. how many men would be willing to change their jobs..?
Those who have privileges inevitably hold on to them, and hold tight, no matter how marginal the advantage involved, until compelled to bow to superior power of one sort or another.
Thus, the question of women’s equality—in art as in any other realm—devolves not upon the relative benevolence or ill-will of individual men, nor the self-confidence or abjectness of individual women, but rather on the very nature of our institutional structures themselves and the view of reality which they impose on the human beings who are part of them.”
