As a student in animation, I am currently working on my graduation movie.
I share with you a concept art I did in 2013 for this character.
(Because I wanted it white, I painted it in black before \°<°/ )
Equating womanhood to menstruation is some straight up bullshit. True fact. I know some people want to try to take power from that premise or mystify it or what have you, but they need to be aware of the people they hurt by doing so so goddamn loudly.
Women who have not yet had…
As a mostly CIS woman who has amenorrhea caused by what seems to be Polycystic ovary syndrome, this. I haven’t had a period in several years now, and initially when seeing doctors about it, ALL of them tried to “treat” me by forcing my body back into the cycle. Unfortunately that had all sorts of nasty side effects, and eventually I found a doc who was willing to accept that I had no desire to have a period or kids, so helped me manage it without forcing “fertility” as the main goal.
Am I not a woman? I am a woman. My biological function doesn’t define that I am a woman or not. Nor should it define anyone else’s identity, either.
Snow in New York City’s Central Park.
This was recorded by the Portsmouth Sinfonia in an experiment where all the members of the orchestra would swap instruments with each other and attempt to play them to the best of their ability.
favorite things about this
- literally all the brass starts to get the hang of it and then the crescendos happen and everyone is like FUCK FUCK FUCK??? FUCK. JUST. BLOW RLY HARD.
- the strings are lazy but also the same. like u can tell a lot of the ppl w/ the stringed instruments may already basically know how to play stringed instruments. like there’s definitely a section at the beginning where you hear a good portion going “oh yeah this is like. a smaller/bigger version of what i do.”
- all you hear of any woodwinds is just “pffffttt??? pFFFTTTT???? PFFFFFTTTT I SAID PFFFFTTTT!!!!!” bc woodwinds are fucking HARD and you hear after like the first crescendo half of them just give up. they give up. they’re done. fuck this it tastes weird and my lips hurt.
- that trumpet. that person is fucking TRYING man they fucking GOT this. they may not have figured out notes but they figured out LOUD and they GOT this.
