In an effort to both allocate space for and document the existence of masculine women, photographer Meg Allen created a powerful series of portraits for an exhibit at Cafe Gabriela in Oakland, Calif.
Entitled BUTCH, Allen’s series not only represents genderqueer women for a broader, heteronormative audience, but reaffirms butch identity within the queer community at a time when “butch flight,” or gender transitioning, is arguably becoming more and more commonplace. It is, as Allen says on her website, “an homage to the bull-daggers and female husbands before me, and to the young studs, gender queers and bois who continue to bloom into the present.”
These are some good looking folks
This is all I have ever wanted to see. My butch friends may sometimes get “Why don’t you just become a man?” in the same way folks would tell me “Why don’t you just be a butch lesbian?” Because masculinity and gender identity are two totally separate bubbles, that for some become a venn diagram, and for others, coexist peacefully inside of us.
Two things can exist independently, and coexist peacefully. Gender identity and masculinity/femininity/androgyny.
i would be so much more engaged in teen wolf AS A WHOLE if sciles was just a canon thing. like it had been canon since long before the start of the series. it was just this totally normal thing that no one questioned ever. they had been best friends since second grade and best friends who made out sometimes since seventh grade. they were so close before the whole making out thing that half the town didnt even realize that iT WAS A THING until PDA. perfect organic sciles is my everything uwu.
OR OR college sciles where they push the two little beds together so that stiles can sleep all starfished out and ridiculous and scott can sleep curled against his side. OR college sciles where the coffee shop nearest the library knows that scott’s usual is his coffee aND stiles because scott never buys coffee just for himself.
ugh literally in every scenario i can only imagine one ‘going public’ for scott and stiles and it’s them being like ‘uh, guys, so, you should know we are dating' and the rest of the universe being like ‘wait, has there been a time when you weren’t dating?’
↳ N → nice try…but no
"It’s the age of celebrity. It’s the age of social media. But for we old school girls who don’t want to show up at every single event just ‘cause… I don’t tweet–I have nothing to say. I’m not on Facebook. I mean it sounds like I have plenty to say, but that’s to people who I’m in a room with. I’m not that interesting, and the rest is none of your business." - Gina Torres
Peggy Carter married Gabe Jones but they didn’t have any kids.
They adopted British war orphans instead, and raised to be people that Captain America would be proud of.
I LOVE YOU FOR FIGURING OUT HOW TO MAKE THIS WORK I FOR REAL DID NOT THINK OF THIS.
THE ONLY ONE THEY NEVER QUITE UNDERSTAND IS SUSAN PEVENSIE
SO PEGGY TEACHES HER HOW TO WEAR LIPSTICK AND NYLONS
AND BREAK A MAN’S ARM
She’s oddly good at it for a person who has no record of previous training. She’s very good with a bow and asks to learn to use a gun as soon as she can. Peggy teaches her and they spend Saturday afternoons shredding the center of paper targets.
Susan becomes SHIELD’s range instructor shortly after she gets her driving license. Agents only complain until they see her shoot.
I told myself I wouldn’t draw any fanart for Teen Wolf, but then Allison had that jaw and Lydia had those eyes and whoops my hand slipped.
Makeouts! Kissing remains difficult to draw; I’m unsure whether to call this a success. XD
