No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.

The biggest shock of Paris’s spring-summer 2014 fashion shows came on the otherwise calm and gentle Nina Ricci catwalk, when two topless activists from protest group Femen crashed the podium.
Grabbing a startled model making her way down the catwalk, they screamed “fashion fascism,” with words decrying the sexualization of the modeling industry written in make-up. One had “Fashion dictaterror” scrawled on her naked torso, the other “Model don’t go to brothel.”
One British model, Liverpool-born Hollie-May Saker, was caught in the middle, with the protesters brushing against her lamé-and-lace skirt.
“The next thing I just see half-naked women with black marker pen scrawled across their bare chests and that’s when she came at me….As she grabbed my arm she lifted my skirt exposing me – I pulled my arm back with such force that I landed a punch square on her nose,” Saker told the Echo.

So, to fight back against the sexualization of the modeling industry, these women assaulted a model and forcibly exposed her?
Protip: You’re not fighting a patriarchal system by assaulting women and exposing them against their will.
I have literally never heard of a positive thing done by Femen. Seriously. They need to stop. First the blatant Islamophobia, and now this? Really?
If your idea of feminism includes racist bullshit and attacking women who don’t conform to your exact image of a feminist, guess what? You’re a complete asshole and you’re misrepresenting feminism as a whole.
I *hate* Femen. Literally they are the reason feminism is viewed in a bad light. They’re the West Borough Baptist of feminism and I can’t stand it.
wasn’t it discovered earlier this year that FEMEN is run entirely by some rich israeli dude who required women to submit topless ‘audition’ photos before they can officially become a member
im pretty sure it’s not an actual feminist organization at all it’s really fucked up
white feminism bankrolled and controlled by old rich white dudes
Yo I’ve reblogged this before but the article linked above is so crazy important it’s not even funny.
I think I might I’ve read all Pacific Rim related post on internet and this quote give me so many feels. Guillermo del Toro is such a great guy. I should start to work on real life, but Pacific Rim is way much better.
I feel like we need a lot more of this in media. Because it’s true, that’s why.

I know, six months late to the party, my mind is still blown. All US presidents except Martin van Buren are descended from John Lackland Plantagenet. Yes, that John Lackland Plantaganet. Yes, all US presidents as of 2013.
