Actor and feminist, Terry Crews, sheds light on the whole “man up” ideology that young boys are taught in early stages of life. Boys should not play with certain toys that aren’t Tonka Trucks or G.I. Joe’s. Boys should never cry because that is what girls do. Boys should not… blah, blah, blah. 

When boys are taught to “man up,” society compares weakness with femininity, and sometimes just being a female is considered weakness, How many times have you heard “Don’t be a pussy” come out the mouths of teenage boys and grown men? Society associates having a “pussy” with weakness. Women are emotional and fragile creatures in a male dominant society and in order for this dominance to remain, men must act like a “man.” A “man” within societal standards is strong, emotionless, intelligent, and aggressive (not necessarily violent, but aggressive in terms of determination and work ethic). To be a “man” society forces men and young boys to suppress what makes them human: emotions, feelings, compassion.

As Terry Crews points out in this interview with Larry King, within the African American community, men are pressured to act a certain way by society. There is a stigma that surrounds African American men, the media portrays them as aggressive, violent, and generally what society expects from a “man.” Men are told to “not be so sensitive” and “don’t be such a girl” when it comes to issues that involve their emotions and feelings. If someone is offended they have every damn right to be upset, sensitivity is not solely for women, sensitivity and feeling are what make you human. Being “feminine,” “sensitive,” or a “girl” does not make you weak. It makes you human.

Truth. That’s the neighborhood. And it’s an extremely exhausting way to live.

Made for the Moon Crisis: A Sailor Moon Tribute Art Show July 5th, 2014
What can I say, I’ve always had a fascination with Death and Time, maybe because I’m Scorpio and my planets were Pluto and Mars, =P, but the idea of morality and the illusion of time, they all seemed so mystical and mysterious. Sailor Saturn’s history was sad and rough to begin with, but being the Soldier of Ruin, Silence, Birth, and Death was such an exciting aspect to the already glittery, love  friendship, and sunshine that started Sailor Moon. Her design to me was attractive, much like Sailor Pluto, and as the last Sailor Scout to arrive, she topped off this amazing series wonderfully.
She one of three in a series I’m doing of my favorite Sailor Scouts. Sailor Mercury and Sailor Pluto

Made for the Moon Crisis: A Sailor Moon Tribute Art Show July 5th, 2014

After obsessing over Sailor Moon every Saturday morning and falling in love with Astronomy when I was a kid, I had to look up the rest of the Scouts. I was always in love with Pluto, and I am Scorpio, so I was fascinated by utter mystery of the planet at the time. Then I saw Sailor Pluto herself, and was so freakin’ excited to meet her… but the English dubbed never made it to her officially… So I researched her like my Astronomy and found a pillar of greatness. She was a model of honesty, understanding, strength, and ambitious. An intelligent independent character I could look up to. She was like Sailor Mercury x10  Everything about her design was amazing too. Come on, she’s a Guardian of Time, with that much responsibility, only a loyal and strong person can hold that much power, and know when to sacrifice it =P

Also, Time Stop would make for some awesome pin-up shoots, with consequence =D

Sailor Mercury was my first favorite Sailor Scout, and an inspiration from the start. From her looks/style, intelligence, and positive/humble attitude, Ami was a great character. Needless to say, she’s one of the biggest inspirations why I have a boy cut hair style dyed blue =P

In 1808, Napoleon, running out of scenic holiday destinations to invade, somehow totally forgot about his neighbor to the south, Spain. So that year he dispatched his troops, kicking off the Peninsular War.
Only 20 years old and working as a barmaid in the town of Valdepenas, Juana Galan was not expecting a surge of French soldiers to come storming through her village. But on June 6, that’s exactly what happened. At that time, most of the men were fighting Napoleon’s forces elsewhere in the nation. Juana, unfazed by things like rifles and Frenchmen and French riflemen, began organizing the women in her village to form a trap for the approaching army.
When the army arrived, Juana and her friends were ready. They dumped boiling water and oil on the French troops, which by all accounts will instantly take the fight out of pretty much anyone. Then Juana, armed with only a batan, beat back the heavily armed French cavalry with her squad of village women, almost none of whom were armed with guns.
The French retreated, giving up on capturing not just Juana’s town but the entire province of La Mancha, leading to ultimate Spanish victory. Today, she is seen in Spain as a national hero, a symbol of resistance, strength, patriotism, feminism and hitting shit with a stick.

That’s one hell of a portrait.

This is maybe the best portrait of anyone that I’ve ever seen, ever.
