He puts the book between his teeth, but he doesn’t give it the power to make him cry.  Make John Green find the thing.

Why does female hair evoke both desire and disgust?  In 2013 Petra Collins, a Canadian fashion photographer, posted an image on her Instagram that was immediately deleted along with her account that had 21 thousand followers. Collins did nothing that violated the terms of use as there was no nudity, violence, pornography, unlawful, hateful or infringing imagery. What she did have was an image of her body that didn’t meet society’s standard of “femininity.” The image was from the waist down wearing a bathing suit in front of a sparkly backdrop that depicted her own unaltered state - an unshaven bikini line. 
The controversy sparked from this incident and the anger that I felt along with it, was the starting point for my work. I’m used to being told by society that I must regulate my body to fit the norm as a female. However, that doesn’t mean I’m okay with it.
My work explores ideas of gender roles and definitions and expectations of beauty.  I created the work using digital media in both photography and video with influences from many female artists such Petra Collins, Lin Tianmiao, Deborah Pauwee and Cigdem Aydemir. I have also chosen to appropriate two iconic works, Frida Kahlo’s Self-Portrait with Cropped Hair and Marina Abramovic and Ulay’s, Relation in Time (these are other photos in the work, altogether there is a collection of 5)
The idea of hair on women has both negative and sexual connotations. It is known to suggest pleasure and desire, two things that a woman in our generation are supposed to be stripped of.  Personally, I feel that the removal of hair in women is a form of oppression. It is an attempt to flatten women and make ideas and images of women two dimensional and child-like so that we become an object groomed for male expectations.
It is through my photographs that I hope to encourage and inspire a sense of anger and spark a source of change in how women, especially teenage girls, view themselves and their body. 
 The removal and growing of one’s hair should be OUR choice.

If I was a student at Hogwarts I’d use Howlers to send nice messages to people.

So you’d be sitting there in the Great Hall eating breakfast when an owl drops a Howler in front of you. You, and everyone else on your table, just stares at it as it trembles, explodes open, shrieks I WANT TO TOUCH YOUR SWEET BUTT and then dissolves into flames.

Black and Third World people are expected to educate white people as to our humanity. Women are expected to educate men. Lesbians and gay men are expected to educate the heterosexual world. The oppressors maintain their position and evade their responsibility for their own actions. There is a constant drain of energy which might be better used in redefining ourselves and devising realistic scenarios for altering the present and constructing the future.

He grew a tree into a chair. He can wear whatever the fuck he wants.
