Philosophy assignment: 

Select which ethical framework you believe is most in line with your personal values and explain:

  1. Why do you prefer this framework over another? and
  2. From the ones you did not select, explain why you believe these frameworks are weak and/or not something you would accept as true.

… These are such loaded questions how rude. At least I’ve thought about this and have some sort of answer prepared, but good grief. There’s no clean solution—if there were, we wouldn’t still be batting the topic back and forth in modern discourse.

Did everyone read that piece where the guy who coined the term Manic Pixie Dream Girl talks about regretting coming up with it, and why it used to be a term for pointing out misogyny, but has actually kinda become misogynistic itself because male critics just use it to denigrate any woman onscreen they don’t like?

Thought I’d share some more work of mine. The positive response from you all is so surprising and lovely. You are all too nice!
This is a 7-8 hour study with reference. Texture from Inspiration Hut. I follow a few femme bodybuilding blogs, and there’s something about the strength these people cultivate that is so visually inspiring to me.

Anonymous: did you taper your earlobes when you stretched them?

I used tapers to guide new jewelry in. However, I didn’t rely on them to stretch my ears. Doing so can cause tearing, formation of scar tissue, and loss of skin elasticity.

I waited 1-2 months between each stretch (sometimes more!) and let my lobes stretch themselves naturally. I also used PTFE tape between 8 and 4 gauge after being at the same sizes for a while.

silverinkwings: Hey your dreads are they all your head and your bangs is regular hair or the top part of your hair is regular and the bottom is dreads?

Hi! I have locks all over my head, except for my bangs, which are left unlocked. It’s always just been a preference of mine. Even when I would get cornrows, I would ask to leave the front out, just because I feel like it softens my face and gives me good versatility!

jfc your art is amazing

Aw, thank you so much! I haven’t really been involved with online art communities for the past few years, so I haven’t been sharing my work much. My output is super low during the regular university semesters, but I’m trying to draw a lot more this summer. I just don’t want all my hard work and practice from long ago to go to waste. I wish I could find a way to make it all useful somehow, though.

I just made some more blueberry cheesecake cupcakes, but my stomach’s too achey to eat one tonight. 

Come out and help.

Anonymous: thank you for answering and one more thing. do those ear weights hurt and do you sleep in them?

No problem! My ear weights used to make my ears sore after about a half hour. But now that I’m used to them, I can wear them all day with no troubles. So if you end up getting some and are surprised by their weight, don’t worry! You’ll get used to them.

I don’t sleep in my weights, though. It’s a good idea to let your ears get some rest. Consistently wearing weights all day every day over a long period of time can cause lobe thinning, because it puts uneven pressure on the bottom of the fistula. I usually wear silicone eyelets at night, but any plain jewelry should do.
