You can call me Kuro or Izou. I'm just an 20 year old who obsesses over fiction like most of the site. There will be spoilers (that I don't bother tagging at all) mostly for my fandoms which include Supernatural, Doctor Who, Avengers, Xmen First Class, Firefly/Serenity, One Piece and other various things. Also included: Random Shit that I find amusing, occasional Art occasional Fic, occasional NSFW, blather about my original story which is in the works and lots of gay.
Send me an Ask I would love to chat.

When Brazilian graphic designer Carol Rossetti began posting colorful illustrations of women and their stories to Facebook, she had no idea how popular they would become. 

Thousands of shares throughout the world later, the appeal of Rosetti’s work is clear. Much like the street art phenomenon Stop Telling Women To Smile, Rossetti’s empowering images are the kind you want to post on every street corner, as both a reminder and affirmation of women’s bodily autonomy. 

"It has always bothered me, the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies, behavior and identities," Rossetti told Mic via email. "It’s a kind of oppression so deeply entangled in our culture that most people don’t even see it’s there, and how cruel it can be."

Rossetti’s illustrations touch upon an impressive range of intersectional topics, including LGBTQ identity, body image, ageism, racism, sexism and ableism. Some characters are based on the experiences of friends or her own life, while others draw inspiration from the stories many women have shared across the Internet. 

"I see those situations I portray every day," she wrote. "I lived some of them myself."

Despite quickly garnering thousands of enthusiastic comments and shares on Facebook, the project started as something personal — so personal, in fact, that Rossetti is still figuring out what to call it. For now, the images reside in albums simply titled “WOMEN in english!" or "Mujeres en español!" which is fitting: Rossetti’s illustrations encompass a vast set of experiences that together create a powerful picture of both women’s identity and oppression.

One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the way it has struck such a global chord. Rossetti originally wrote the text of the illustrations in Portuguese, and then worked with an Australian woman to translate them to English. A group of Israeli feminists also took it upon themselves to create versions of the illustrations in Hebrew. Now, more people have reached out to Rossetti through Facebook and offered to translate her work into even more languages. Next on the docket? Spanish, Russian, German and Lithuanian.

It’s an inspiring show of global solidarity, but the message of Rossetti’s art is clear in any language. Above all, her images celebrate being true to oneself, respecting others and questioning what society tells us is acceptable or beautiful.

"I can’t change the world by myself," Rossetti said. "But I’d love to know that my work made people review their privileges and be more open to understanding and respecting one another."

Young men need to be socialized in such a way that rape is as unthinkable to them as cannibalism.

Trying to distract myself so I made a list of food and wrote down if they were safe or not for parrot consumption, explaining why next to the food.

Might try to keep adding to this as more foods pop in to my head but for now here is the most complete list of foods to feed your parrot.  If you can think of foods I have not included in here feel free to add on to the list or let me know so I can add it in!

All fully capitalized words are ones that should not be fed or fed with specific instructions/ moderation.

This is literally what Terry Pratchett wears to conventions. 

What a good thing is Terry Pratchett.

As a rule I have to reblog Terry Pratchett, even if I’ve already done so before.

I just wanted to share something fun for birds that I found which is called FunPacks (like BarkBox) where you subscribe monthly and every month, you can get random food and toys in a box for your bird! :) 

WHAT I was just thinking the other day that they should have one of these for birds and here it is! Awesomeness! One day I will do this when I’m not broke.
