Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

This is an important message on how privilege really works.

a very good post.

privilege is not a sin or moral failing that you have to correct, nor does it mean you have nothing relevant to say; tumblr uses the concept completely wrong most of the time.

the actual sense of the term is more like ‘defaultness’ — being the baseline in society’s eyes, not standing out, not being the sticking-up nail or the squeaky wheel. and the reasonable response to realizing this is not to apologize and feel bad — and it’s certainly not to try to be less default, that goes to really weird places — but to consider your new level of awareness and apply it to the society around you. it’s a useful tool. it’s like a UV camera that shows up fingerprints and bloodstains so you can investigate a crime scene. it’s like a polarizing camera filter that cuts out glare so you can see details. once you’re aware of what society deems ‘other’ or ‘exception’, you can see where to focus change to fix it.

the theory of privilege is a lens for seeing society more clearly, not a hammer to hit people with.

In this Citizen tutorial Tim Von Rueden takes you through coloring a character from a sketch using solely the soft edge brush. The main two points expressed in this tutorial are how to work from a sketch that wasn’t scanned in as well as coloring using only the basic soft edge brush.

FULL TUTORIAL HERE!

painfully uninspired right now.

Ferguson Police Open Fire Into Peaceful Protest

Video capture of the live feed from Wednesday, 8/13/2014

Please please please reblog and share and pass around. Signal boost the shit out of this. Getting the truth out makes it harder for these racist fascists to spin this as something other than tax-funded terrorism. Protect and serve #Ferguson by getting their story out.

This is terrifying

I’ve been in an art block recently. I’m inspired but I just don’t know what to draw. This is all I could come up with…pretty meh. It also doesn’t help that school is going to be starting back up and I’ll be a senior with no plans on what I’m doing in the future. I need help. What do you think I should draw?

rebloging since I posted this at 4 in the morning.

I’ve actually seen a gallery of drawings made entirely of hair and a bike covered in cigarette butts.
