Eliza Bennett - A woman’s work is never done, 2011Using my own hand as a base material, I considered it a canvas upon which I stitched into the top layer of skin using thread to create the appearance of an incredibly work worn hand. By using the technique of embroidery, traditionally employed to represent femininity and applying it to the expression of it’s opposite, I hope to challenge the pre-conceived notion that ‘women’s work’ is light and easy. Aiming to represent the effects of hard work arising from employment in low paid ancillary jobs such as cleaning, caring, and catering, all traditionally considered to be ‘women’s work’.

Love this one lol think its true for a lot of us

Yo, my stoneface game is so strong I nix the makeup most days now.
Don’t get me wrong, I love going full-femme, but I don’t need to add more steps to my day to make strangers feel more comfortable being around a disabled person. That shit takes energy I need for vital stuff, like PT and other self care. Able bodied drag ain’t vital.

the Coquette on PTSD

coketalk:

I stayed in last night. Didn’t want to be in public. Turns out it was for the best, because Avicii headlined at the Hollywood Bowl. It was madness down there. Aside from the usual traffic related fuckery, the streets of Hollywood were choked with insufferable euro-trash freaks. Much more so that…

The dispossessed awareness of what is happening during the attack is very relatable to my own experiences with PTSD. 

It feels cool that my landlord snapped this photo. #serfstrap #ehlersdanlos #bmmechanicallegs

Someone told me that my bedroom looked “productive”. My desk is never less than a mess.

Dear Students,
Here is a photo you can use for your writing exercise. Remember that you are either someone in this picture or this is what you can see. Take two minutes to draw the image before you begin in non-photo blue. Use the drawing to really help you see the image.  Answer your X-page questions and write in first person present tense for 10 or even 15 minutes.
Sincerely,
Prof. Chewbacca
PS. Using some words from your wordbag with this photo might bring a story to you faster.  Why not draw three and then flip them over and see one helps a story show up?

Everybody is following Lynda Barry already, right? Ok, cool.
