Concept illustration for a kid’s book I’ll be doing soon called ‘Billy-Bob - Boy Ballerina”
It’s basically a story geared towards 6 year olds about a tough kid who wears tutus to school and likes to dance. I want to promote an abolition of gender-roles and emphasize the importance of sticking with your hobbies and the things you love just because you love them.
I believe that no child should be punished for expressing themself.
Yes, this is brilliant and I love love love the idea and concept and art. But look at his perfect arabesque!
i was making a lot of mistakes and then my archery instructor said:
“you make mistakes because you’re focusing on the target and not on your actions”
and i was like woah
thanks for giving me the best life advice i’ve ever gotten
I just said “that’s brilliant” aloud.

#god i loved this scene SO MUCH #because she’s scared. she’s scared and everything’s going wrong and she just wants to huddle into a corner and do nothing at all #she’s just had to face her worst fear‚ something she can’t control‚ can’t manipulate‚ can’t fight #everything is going horribly wrong and honestly if she hadn’t answered i doubt anyone would have specifically noticed #but she gets up anyway. she pulls herself together and she radios in and she goes to stop clint. #some guy who totally missed the point complained in a review that it was unfeminist to have had her be scared and i say fuck that #do you have any idea how wonderful it was to see a heroine who freaks out and then pushes past it‚ sir #who is ALLOWED by the narrative to freak out‚ who is not shamed for her fear‚ who can be afraid without it defining her #because it was pretty fucking wonderful to me
Jason Jones discovers the scary similarity between Republicans in Congress and criminals who take hostages.
If this isn’t the best analogy for the government shutdown, I just don’t know what is.

Sixteen-year-old Elif Bilgin of Turkey has developed a way to replace traditional petroleum-based plastic with banana peels.
The Turkish teen took home a US$50,000 prize for her project “Go Bananas!” Thursday after winning the second annual Scientific American Science in Action Award, associated with Google Science Fair.
“My project makes it possible to use banana peels, a waste material which is thrown away almost every day, in the electrical insulation of cables,” Bilgin said in a media statement.
“This is both an extremely nature-friendly and cheap process, which has the potential to decrease the amount of pollution created due to the use of plastics, which contain petroleum derivatives.”
Bilgin spent two years developing the bio-plastic, which does not decay. She said the process is so easy that it is possible to repeat at home, with special care taken for chemicals used in the production process.
In September, the teen will compete at Google’s California headquarters for the overall Google Science Fair prize for 15-to-16 year olds. She will also have access to a one-year mentorship.
Has anyone else noticed how many brilliant breakthroughs in science are coming from the minds of teenage girls the last few years? Between this story, the four girls in Nigeria who invented a generator that runs on urine, the California girl who invented a twenty-second cell phone charger… Who knows where we’d be today without the patriarchal interference of men, stealing or hiding the brilliance of women?
Our future is in the hands of teenage girls, and I for one feel really good about that.
When I was about 7 I wanted to invent a thing that purified water based off of fish gills. I went to the school library to do research like a good little inventor and one of my teachers asked me what I was doing, and then told me that there were some new barbie books in, and that I’d probably be better off with those.
Don’t forget the girl who invented a torch that’d light up just from the heat of your hands
basically everyone should stop shitting on teenage girls because they do awesome things when you let them
oh but girls aren’t good at science FUCK YOU PATRIARCHY
What all musicians need.
I am far too excited about the existence of this thing.
WASHINGTON — At least 200 people with disabilities set up camp outside a House office building on Monday and occupied the halls inside, demanding that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) stop trying to delay or defund Obamacare. Armed with megaphones and banners, the protesters took over the steps of several entrances into the Longworth building and criticized Boehner for trying to attach a one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act to a bill to keep the government funded past Monday.

I wish that I had known about this… I would have liked to go and take part in it if I had. I admire those who were there, so much.
Being an aspiring graphic designer, I’ve been trying to make gender-neutral anti-rape posters in response to the recent Canadian ones generating a lot of popularity.
The truth about sexual assault and rape is the simple fact that ANYONE can be a victim, and ANYONE can be an offender. Women are just as capable as men of committing these awful crimes, and vice-versa. No one should be shamed for being a victim, and all offenders should be brought to justice.
These are the very early beta stages of this project and there will be more topics covered with each poster I make. Also, until I have my nice camera returned to me from a good friend, all I have are some simple free stock images for the time being.
If you have any feedback please let me know! I’ve already sent a few emails to my local college, which is thus far supportive of my endeavors and is even willing to put up any finished products this upcoming semester!
DO NOT REDISTRIBUTE WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. ALL POSTERS BELONG TO ME, AND THEIR STOCK IMAGES BELONG TO THEIR RESPECTIVE OWNERS.
These are amazing!
These are great! Fellow graphic designer approves.
Simple but it gets the message across. Nicely done.
These would be perfect if they included more people of color, and LGBTQ couples! :)
These posters are in the stalls of the bathrooms at my university (at least in the ladies, I haven’t asked anyone if they’re in the gents too. I hope so though). Thank you National Union of Students for doing it right. If only they put these posters up in all public bathrooms
THESE SHOULD BE MANDATORY.
