purjo said: but i mean like your shop is called girl collective….
that’s because we only collaborate etc with girls. this print is made by one particular artist, and it’s her expression. but as i said, we include trans girls and women in the term girls.

and we include trans girls and women in the term girls. (:
purjo said: cause radfeminism is genital centric:/
yeah, but i don’t see how this print is. all it portrays is a person with a pussy masturbating. the text doesn’t even touch the subject feminism, it means “wet dreams about smashing the police state.”
purjo said: thats a lot like radfeminism/vagina feminism
in what way do you mean? there is nothing in this print suggesting that vagina=girl/woman.
if it’s inaccessible to poor people it’s not radical
"My boyfriend/girlfriend won’t let me"
What was that?
How lovely congratulations on your 3rd parental guardian
"BLUE BALLS" ARE NOT AN ACTUAL THING.
A BONER IS NOT A MEDICAL CONDITION.
IF A DUDE TRIES TO GUILT TRIP YOU ABOUT GIVING HIM BLUE BALLS, TELL HIM TO GO FUCK HIMSELF.
Literally. That’s so awful

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."”

i just came home and i haven’t eaten much today so i’m really hungry. the person i’m currently sharing the apartment with (only for one more week THANK GOD then she’s moving out) was not only using my frying pan (she has one herself???? and it was clean why did she not use her own??) but she was also cooking meat in it when i specifically told her not to when i moved in (it was THE ONLY THING i told her when i moved in. i’m not even joking.) and now i’m just so hungry and tired and angry and UGH
i might be overreacting a little bit but it’s been quite tense between us and even if she hasn’t said anything she’s made it so clear that she doesn’t like me and i’m so tired of her
