Hi, I'm Alannah and this is my feminist blog. You can find my personal at sailor-sloth@tumblr.com

Hey everyone! As you probably noticed, this blog isn’t being updated very often. Although I’m still very much interested in feminism, I feel as though I’ve outgrown this blog. I won’t be deleting it, and who knows, maybe some time in the future I’ll come back to it. But for the moment, consider it finished. If you’re still interested in what I’m up to, please visit me at my personal - I’ll still be posting feminist things over there and am happy to give advice if needed.

Love you all, thank you for being so supportive and wonderful :)

Okay, so I’m not sure why but for some reason there are a ton, a TON, of Princess Batman costumes, possibly more than the standard Batgirl costume. They come in 2 different flavors, bumblebee and hot pink. So, I’m just making one big Super Princess Batman compilation post (alternatively Ballerina Batman since those fluffy skirts can be ambiguous).

Don’t ask which Robin that is because I cannot keep track of all the dang Robins at this point… “Stephanie Carrie Graydrake-Waynetodd”

Here it is! I’m not 100% sure if I like how it came out… it almost seems a bit too cutesy for the subject. Maybe I just like drawing cute clothes and bright colours too much! 
This is for a contest with the Canadian Human Rights Agencies for their conference in May. All the Advanced Illustration students and Design students had to enter as part of their final. Kinda pissed that they required us to print it off at 24 x 36…. which I think is way too big and expensive ($50!!) for most students and their budget. We don’t even get to keep the posters. And the top prize is only $200. I feel kinda ripped off. :/
EDIT: A couple of people have sent me notes saying that “Transgendered” is incorrect terminology. I apologize, I kind of added the text last minute, and should have known better. I’ve uploaded a fixed version. :)

This poster is a good reminder that pronouns aren’t “preferred”. They’re NECESSARY. 

If it’s okay, I’d like to put in my two cents re: the color scheme being “too cutesy—” I… kinda like that. For one, she’s a femme woman and the color scheme reflects that. She’s not muted or neutralized even when the wrong words surround her. I like that she’s strong and cute and bright and herself. Even when it’s hard.

  • what you said was: "i don't respect women who don't respect themselves"
  • what you meant was: "i and society as a whole hold women up to ridiculous respectability standards directly relating to the "purity" of said women while hypersexualizing them at the same time and if you are a woman and don't fit my awkward monolith of criteria then i refuse to acknowledge your humanity"
  • what i heard was: "hi i'm a misogynist piece of shit, please punch me in my face"

Wearing a hijab isn’t inherently liberating – but neither is baring one’s breasts. What is liberating is being able to choose either of these things. It’s pretty ludicrous to think that oppression is somehow proportional to how covered or uncovered someone’s body is. Both sides of this argument present a shallow understanding of women’s empowerment, which only drowns out the substantive challenges facing all women – issues that cannot be encapsulated in a debate about a piece of fabric.

a girl walks into a classroom wearing a spaghetti strap shirt. immediately every boy within a 50 yard radius gets a raging erection. the teacher attempts to present a lesson but to no avail, no one can hear over the sound of every male student masturbating to this girl’s shoulders. why couldn’t she just wear a long sleeved shirt
