Japanese photographer Chino Otsuka took old photos from her childhood and put pictures of her present self in them, creating lovely double self-portraits.

The levels of Photoshop perfection tho! So dope.

  • Early Feminists: Oh hey, we see that you can vote. We would like to vote also. I mean, since most of those laws effect us too and all.
  • Men: YOU JUST WANT SUPERIORITY OVER MEN!
  • Mid-century Feminists: Hey, that whole thing about how you can have careers and earn a living wage outside the home? Yes that sounds nice, we'd like the option to do that as well.
  • Men: YOU WANT A MATRIARCHY, THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT!
  • Late 20th century Feminists: Hey we would like to make our own choices about our reproductive health, just like you've always had.
  • Men: YOU ARE TRYING TO TAKE MEN'S RIGHTS AWAY!
  • Modern-day feminists: Hey, if you could you stop sexually assaulting/harassing us and them blaming us for it, that'd be pretty great.
  • Men: THIS IS MISANDRY, MISANDRY I SAY! FEMINISTS HAVE GONE TOO FAR!
  • Feminists: Um...
  • Men: THE END OF MEN IS NIGH! MALE OPPRESSION IS REAL! THE MATRIARCHAL AGE IS UPON US!
#what was my tag for this type of thing again #oh yes #this would be hilarious if it wasn't so sad #feminism

can we stop referring to all sex that could possibly result in pregnancy as “heterosexual reproduction” now

wow
How did they get away with that
AH
I LOVE THIS


What do you mean how did they get away with it?
History isn’t one straight line progressing towards a liberal society.
Look how much Americans attitudes have changed between 1980 and today. 1980 was the first time most very religious people voted, they abstained before that at the behest of their churches. Now they dictate policy at every election.
In my family photo album there are pictures from the 20s of a woman called ‘uncle bob’. She dressed in men’s clothing, and had a ‘companion’. This was a rough industrial town, they were working class, nobody cared. It was her business.
This is why politics is important - the moment you think everything is better today than it was in the past, you let other people take control of the direction society goes in - with you sitting back presuming we’re going forwards.


reblogging for the commentary

I’m sure something like this could very well have happened (it probably did happen, because, well, humans). However, this particular piece is a photomanipulation by Jamie Vesta – something that can be easily checked by clicking the “via” link, which leads to a page linking to the original image source.
That doesn’t render the commentary any less valid, though.

and then she wrote him up in a report to starfleet citing his unjustified use of the captain’s over-ride code as highly unprofessional. needless to say this is probably more towards the beginning of jim’s career as a starship captain.

"Hello friend!"
(For Fishlips, as promised).For some reason this is all I could think of while watching ‘This side of paradise’. Any episode where Spock loses his shit is an episode I will love until the end of time.

WHY WAS I UNAWARE OF THE FACT THAT “DISGRUNTLED” IS, IN FACT, THE OPPOSITE OF “GRUNTLED”

Lavoisier is having none of your shit.

Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.

Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject. 
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.
