unicorn hoofprints and fairy dust

I guess now I have one of these things where I post my art and art stuff I like (and some non-art stuff).
Ask me things.

***SIGNAL BOOST!!!!WAYS TO CONTRIBUTE***

Earlier today I was thinking about how frustrating it is to know you are ineffectual when a situation like Ferguson arises and you can’t be there and don’t have the money to send. Ultimately, I guess you just have to do the best work you can where you are and hope that is enough to prevent or at least reduce the frequency of these kinds of injustices.

Super Easy T-Shirt to Jacket Conversion

I pretty much never wear t-shirts, not being a fan of the way they fit on me. So during the summer I wear tank tops and spaghetti strap dresses all the time, but sometimes I need to cover my back and shoulders and a shawl or scarf isn’t practical. Also, sometimes the shirt has a nice picture on it. So, here is a really simple conversion you can do with just a pair of scissors and about 10 minutes of free time.

That’s the funny thing about being poor. Everyone has an opinion on it, and everyone feels entitled to share.

Crystal Moon Pride Undercut

I later realized it probably would have turned out better if I had used a sponge stamp to apply the bleach and dye, rather than brushing it on by hand, but the nice thing about undercuts is that in a month it will be time to shave it off and try again anyway.

Fox News host Jessie Waters’s insane “Beyoncé Voters” definition.

Look at this smug little shit-face.

WHAT DOES THIS EVEN MEAN

It’s barely coded racism. Beyoncé = black women here, which I guess he doesn’t realize is like the biggest compliment anyone could hope for. I mean, I would probably actually cry if someone were to earnestly compare me to BEYONCÉ.

CAN YOU CRACK THIS CODE???

I’m pretty sure Beyoncé does not depend on the government either. I guess Beyoncé voters could be people who would vote for Beyoncé, but that is literally everyone.

ymirphile said: Maybe I don't understand the law that well, but what about the religious freedom of the people who work for those businesses? Isn't the company enforcing their rules over what get covered pushing their religion on their employees?

rosalarian:

That’s what the ruling did. It decided that the business can decide to withhold medicine to their employees (HBC, IUDs, Plan B, etc) on the basis that the business owners' religious convictions are more important than the desires of their employees to control whether or not they get pregnant. Many of those people are gonna be from religions that are 100% okay with birth control. Their religious freedom is moot in the face of what corporations want. The people who work for those businesses are absolutely the ones getting screwed over.

The thing about employer-provided health benefits are that they’re essentially part of your payment. The business takes some money out of your paycheck and pools it together with the other employees and gives you health insurance from that. Sometimes the business pays for part of it, too, but that’s also essentially a form of payment to you, hence why they’re called benefits. They’re meant to be an incentive for people to work for you. But a business deciding that you don’t get access to certain medications (and seriously, people, birth control is a necessary medication for so many people for so many reasons!) is them deciding for you how your money should be spent. It’s not their money. It’s meant to be part of your wages.

Now, I actually think it’s a little strange how, for so many people, our health insurance is determined by where we work, to the point where the system kind of revolves around it, and it’s only very recently that there were any other realistic options for people who can’t get benefits from their employer. Me, for example. I’m self employed for the most part, working part time at a tiny local business that doesn’t offer me benefits. Before Obamacare, I had no health insurance. I much prefer having something independent (though my boss is a pretty liberal woman who I doubt would deny me birth control.) I don’t really think our bosses should be in control of our health. It’s weird and illogical. But so long as that’s how the system works for most people, then employers have to be fair to everyone. Denying people birth control is absolutely sex discrimination, rooted in misogyny and religious bigotry.

Ikeda Riyoko — Oniisama e

So I read all of Oniisama E this afternoon (it is only 17 chapters long), and now I need a clock tower for crying like this.
