>> Art blog
Messy loads of reblogs contain e.g. art I find impressive, beautiful or interesting, photography, animals of many sort (especially cats!), overall things I find cute, gaming related posts, tattoos, nail art, and fandoms including Assassin's Creed, Disney, Ghibli, Pokémon and Adventure Time, to name a few. You never know.
I by myself am doing this and that. Cosplay, something-supposed-to-be-art, handcrafts, glass-works, gaming, daydreaming, roleplaying... and list goes on. I am a young woman living in Finland, Helsinki, and study arts here; my dearest wish in the moment is to have a cat. *u*
A Dance with Dragons

I think today needs an adorable baby bat wiggling its ears at us. Yes.
Tumbling over the past year and a half has made me see the problems of gender roles that exist in media, but sometimes it gets to the point where I over analyze every single piece of television or film that I come across. (However this in no way means that I think feminist media criticism is wrong, or should be avoided!) Mostly I just over think everything.
I’ve thought about this a lot and I think the answer is MORE, and MORE DIVERSE female characters.
We’re used to having one or two female characters in a cast of mostly men, and hold them to a higher standard because of that. So all of feminism is resting on the shoulders of one female character - and that DOESN’T WORK. Because there isn’t one right way to be a woman.
If casts had more diversity of gender, we could have warrior women and non-warrior women, sexual women and non-sexual women, feminine and non-feminine, and mixtures of all of the above…all are completely legitimate ways to be a woman.
We’re used to seeing a lot of hypersexualized, scantily clad, one-dimensional stereotypes of women without stories or motives of their own. We respond by asking for characters that AREN’T THAT, but we may end up pushing too far in the opposite direction, and demonize traits like sexuality, conventional attractiveness, and traditional femininity as “sexist.” That’s why the most popular female characters are the ones that are most similar to male heroes - the Arya Starks - emotionally distant, unattached, solve their problems with violence, not remotely sexual. That’s fine too of course. I love Arya. It’s just not…the only way to be.
i love how men mock women for being overemotional and then lose their shit over a team losing an over-glorified game of fetch
Because all men like watching sports, obviously, right? You just did what you hate men doing, putting generalizations on a whole gender.
i know i did
irritating, isn’t it?
I use hun not hon because you are not my honey, you are my fierce warrior

The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily so they can meet their quota of getting FREE FOOD donated every day to abused and neglected animals in their shelters.
It takes less than a minute (only about 15 seconds actually) to go to their site and click on the purple box titled, ‘Click Here to Give - it’s FREE!’. Every click gives about .6 bowls of food to sheltered dogs. You can also click daily!
Keep in mind that this does not cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising. [via.]

As I was scrolling through the “botanical garden” tag, I stopped about halfway down on this photograph to admire what I thought was the pattern in the fabric of what I imagined was a handmade cactus from a seller on Etsy. When I got to the bottom I was shocked to see that it was a real plant. Isn’t it beautiful?
This plant is Euphorbia obesa, a succulent from southern Africa, at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It is a relatively new botanical garden, having opened in just 1995, and looks like an incredible place to visit. ~AR
This is one of the most inspirational stories ever.
