Fuck I’m walking downtown and I pass a group of guys staring at me and I think “great catcall time” but then one guy goes “you look like you could kill a man a million different ways with just your bare hands”. This. This is an acceptable comment to give a girl on the street.

The thing about this is that sculptures like these in art history were for the male gaze. Photoshop a phone to it and suddenly she’s seen as vain and conceited. That’s why I’m 100% for selfie culture because apparently men can gawk at women but when we realize how beautiful we are we’re suddenly full of ourselves…

it goes farther than that ironically. especially in the art of the renaissance onwards, women’s bodies are posed for the male gaze and then this is morally sanctioned by putting mirrors in front of us, creating a situation where we’re morally culpable for caring about our bodies as they’re seen by others (especially men).
women were depicted as bodies for for male enjoyment as the same time our enjoyment of our own bodies was spun as “vanity”, a moral crime for which being ogled by the voyeurs behind the camera was condign punishment. this is still very much a thing
the reason it’s so easy to photoshop this kind of thing is that in the art history of the west the mirror serves literally the same role as the phone camera, and the ways women are controlled and exploited are spiritually very similar

Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.

I’m having a good laugh right now because our associates just got collectively reprimanded for leaning on the counters during 8 hour shifts on their feet, because it isn’t “professional” looking.  So apparently they can put up with a camera over their shoulder to make sure they do their jobs correctly, but a cop with a gun cant?  

Dude I work in a WEB DESIGN STUDIO and I’m on camera.
ri-frickin-diculous.

People are losing their fire and forgetting about Ferguson. That’s exactly what the police want, though: for all of this to just go away and for people to forget about it.

Don’t let that happen.
