Model/Actress Grace Holley showcasing some admitedly corsetted armor… but it’s still covers all the right places and is more practical than most.
I’m not sure if this is from a movie… it’s possibly from Shroud (2008).
"Corsetted armour"? Maybe, because of those curves - but it’s not that much of a feminised concession to the wearer’s gender.
Plate armour with a more or less tight waist was fashionable for a long time, easily more than two hundred years, and this photoset shows how the fashion developed through different styles of armour. Most images are of real historical items. Even the best reproductions suffer from “interpretation”, mostly because a made-to-measure suit is being re-tailored for someone else. I’ve included two repros of the Churburg armour only because the original lacks those extra parts.
"Transitional" style (1340s-1420s, this one 1380s), (1) original, Schloss Churburg, Austria, (2) possible reproduction with extra mail; (3) definite reproduction with extra mail and skirt-of-plates.
"Transitional" style (1340s-1420s, this one 1400s), original, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, USA:
Milanese style (1440s), original, Kelvingrove Museum, Glasgow, UK:
Gothic style (1480s), original, Kunsthistorisches Museum Waffensammlung, Vienna, Austria:
Maximilian style (1530s), original, Deutsches Historisches Museum, Berlin, Germany:

here's their “i'm sorry for promoting rape post and i'm sorry for not responding to you i should have done better” post. and this is a basic as hell thing not to do. it doesn't take much knowledge of social justice to understand that this is advocating #rape. so again, another strike for wario really only doing this for fame.
here are links to all of the screenshots i took from statcounters that shows them on my blog.
1, 2 (nothing says, hey i’m not creepy let’s read your readmores while i’m totally ignoring your valid complaints of how i’m dealing with ableism), 3, 4, 5. after that they either learned how to block statcounters, ignored me completely, or got a new device to access my blog from that i didn’t know was them.
here is the link to the post in which i say they has continually forgotten about disabled people and have not made their blog accessible. in screen shot number 5 you can see that that was the last post they saw, and the time they saw it. here is the post that contains wario’s original phrasing of their op, as well as a screen shot to their “revised version” were they silently (after everyone has praised them) changed the wording to “someone suggested i do this”.
as for the abled-bodied bit here is them saying they are abled-bodied and here is them using the phrase “abled-bodied” to mean not disabled in anyway (the post is cw for talking about #rape though). I am not a person to ever not believe someone is disabled, but there is a lot of confusion about their disabled status and even answering the simplest of my questions that could clear things up greatly.
also, great, this post just happened, in which wario straight up tells someone who’s actually kind of social justice-y that their ask is hate mail and that they don’t respond to criticism at all publicly either.
so yeah. a huge pile of ableist trash that some how people still love. go figure.

i can’t imagine how hard it must have been struggling with gender shit back when physical transition was a total impossibility, even theoretically
i’m trying hard not to cry
we have a history. we have existed in every culture of the world at every moment of human history. cis institutions have tried to suppress this history or claim it as their own but it is not theirs. it is ours, and always will be. we must uncover and reclaim more of our history, and we must make more ourselves
"hey can i have a couple of those fries"
"i wish stupid people didn’t reproduce" is how the liberal expresses their yearning for eugenics in a socially acceptable way and it’s not cool to ever let them off the hook for that
one time a guy was doing the whole “communism killed millions of ITS OWN PEOPLE” routine and stating what I guess was a belief that its not wrong to kill people in other countries only in your own
anyway he later on expressed that we needed to “reduce the population” and when we asked him how he intended to do that without killing people he just said they’d find a “humane” way
i talked to A Vegan once and they were like, look there’s too many people and it’s causing all this misery we gotta do something about it
so i summarized petti linkola to them and was like, this is the logical conclusion of what you’re saying, just drop some nukes on population centres or otherwise cause mass death, how do you feel about that
and they were like “no no of course i don’t want that that’s appalling” but kept maintaining that the human population needs to be brought down to 2 billion, by some secret and totally Humane magic apparently
"I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna kill the human."
i bet some of you sick fucks laughed at that caption but actually you’d be wrong because it’s 2014 and jokes aren’t fucking real
Here’s Vespicable, with its evolution over the past….jeez, nine years? Every Mortasheen pretty much ends up cute and goofy by the time I’m satisfied. I just can’t do “menacing” for long.
EDIT: changed the eyes and wings a whole lot. Still don’t like the wings that much, but they’ll do for now. The feathery appearance is inspired by fairy wasps.
Vespicable is now my 2nt fav Mortasheen after Oozonaut
An Amorphoscelis mantis is distinguished by a very long “tail” ending in a set of flaps (flashed as a threat display), a short thorax and extremely small forelimbs, basically the exact opposite of a normal mantid’s anatomy!
Instead of sitting around waiting like their cousins, they apparently chase down prey at lightning speed.
omg he looks like a lil shrimp

when we talk about women in refrigerators it’s not always something super literal
i don’t imagine in writers room across the globe they’re all sitting there like “well we’re out of ideas let’s fridge another one” (but maybe they do i have no idea)
but what’s happening consciously or unconsciously writers are deciding that women are more valuable dead then alive. this goes way back. this is poe saying there’s nothing more poetic than the death of a beautiful woman. this is a dozen pre raphaelite paintings of ophelia drowning because they found her suffering erotic. this is the first reaction to laura palmer’s body being found being, “she was so beautiful.”
fuck this. fuck this.
i’m sick of writers getting passes. fuck this. our strong women are taken from us. we don’t get survivors. we don’t get triumph. women get chopped into artistic little pieces for the male heroes to choke own because we’re more valuable this way. because this way you don’t have to worry about our hopes and fears and opinions because we’re dead and dead women tell no tales. they can’t speak out against injustice because men took their tongues. and they think it’s beautiful. death, the ultimate passivity, the ultimate waiting room, is the most beautiful thing of all. there’s nothing more poetic than the death of a beautiful woman.
women matter. they matter when they are living. not listening to women while they’re still breathing is a failure and should not be regarded as anything else. it is a failure with very serious effects
someone put this on neil druckman’s desk.
yeah, and the worst is when male writers think they’re subverting this by having an otherwise good female character (or CAST in american horror story’s case) who just has an unending tide of godawful, often sexualized or at tied to female reproductive systems (eg pregnancy, miscarriage, infertility shit) horrors foisted upon them. the GO TO tragic backstory for a female character is to make her a stripper or hooker. i don’t think i’ve ever, *ever* seen a female character who struggled with a drug addiction who wasn’t also a prostitute. the only time i see this subverted with a dude is when the writers wanna fridge the tragic gay instead.
yes, i get that the main characters in things, especially the main characters in horror/crime dramas or whatever have terrible things happen to them. but it’s really weird how lots of the terrible things that happen to dude characters seem more like ways to make them seem cooler (maybe getting a BADASS INJURY here or there or having a really cool broody drug or alcohol problem that they never feel inclined to fund by suckin dicks, or having other people, (usually female people lol) killed in their past)
