    1) “Woman is the civilizing force for man” You intentionally omitted the last line of that post. It’s certainly the most sexist element of the text. My implication is that men by their nature are brutes and women are not. Your selective outrage is hypocritical. 

    2) Perhaps you missed this? I posted it prior to your initial scolding. It’s relevant to the chain of discussion on this issue and it might serve some interest for you as well.

    3) Our perspectives come from two divergent and non-intersecting positions.

    • You perceive women as frail, weak minded and submissive. The only reason that little Jane doesn’t go out to the garage, grab a wrench and start tearing away at the family car is because of an oppressive misogynist culture that places girls and women in the dated roll of care-giver to all but her own self interests and needs.
    • I see little Jane as a complete human being that should grow up and do whatever the hell she pleases. And apparently it ain’t working on cars or building houses. There is nothing wrong with that. You hate the female that rejects your premise that men and women are the same. I celebrate the feminine spirit as it really is and not what “you” wish it to be.

    If it pleases you to make this public, so you can get a few “likes” from others, well okay.

    Let’s go public.

    This is about your sexist statements about women in general not being interested in machinery and how it shouldn’t be changed. Also how you believed one of reasons for this is because it’s “innate”.

    http://curvyswervydames.tumblr.com/post/97716502352/i-think-they-take-issue-with-your-last-post-about-women

    Now I will address your points.

    1) I didn’t include that because I had specific issues with a part of your statement and questioned it. But okay, if you want me to address that part of your statement then fine.

    "Women is the civilizing force for man" comes from a sexist viewpoint. It puts the responsibility of women making men to be "civilized." Your statement implies men can’t do it for themselves and “We need women to teach us”. Women should not have any sort of obligation to teach men how to stop being “brutes”. Yes it’s true we can(and do) learn from women, but it isn’t their job to do so. In short, women are not for our(men’s) benefit.

    2)I read this and it had nothing to do with your sexist claims I took issue on. But you can’t be sexist anyway. You’re comfortable with your masculinity because you run a blog about a certain type of women. Do tell. I’m not sure if I follow your line of reasoning about women generally not being equal or better firefighters to men. It takes a certain type of woman? Or is it not about which sex is better at firefighting, but? Either way, it’s irrelevant.

    3)Talking about “illiterate assumptions”(your words to me), I never gave claim to women being frail, weak minded, and submissive. I questioned your reasoning and an article you mentioned about girls not being “interested” in trucks. I gave conclusions that if there is any reason why girls are not interested in machinery or trucks, it is because of a sexist culture assigning gender roles, not because it’s hereditary as you have claimed. Then I questioned the article you brought up. I explained that regardless of any sort of hurdles of upbringing, women become interested in machinery as engineers, mechanics, and computers hobbyists.(You know, the other stuff you left out from my past messages.)

    Just because there is a low percentage of women in the workforce doesn’t mean women in general aren’t interested. Your sources show there is a steady rise of more women going into the workforce. Regardless, the low percentage of women in that particular workforce doesn’t let your claims slide. But if it isn’t women not being generally interested then what is the issue? You should read your sources because you left out the context from the data you posted.  According to both reputable sources.

    Both sources support my conclusion about sexist culture. There is also a rampant male dominant force found in these job fields as proof. You can say Jane “can do whatever hell she pleases”, but your dubious statement doesn’t do a thing for her when others believe she doesn’t belong. Thus, Jane has to work twice as hard. I understand that women and men aren’t the same, but if there is any sort of “hate” I have, it is in myself and other men who continue to believe the issues of women are their own.

    What I wish is we saw it more that way.

    The idea that “little jane does what she pleases” assumes that boys and girls are already raised equally in every way, including an equal amount of role models in supposed ‘male dominated fields’ and support for these interests. It also assumes that men in these traditionally masculine fields treat women as equals and probably won’t make stereotypical unwanted advances on their colleagues

    Reblogged for commentary.

  6. Madlib games. I asked fellow artist Ekari for words and I used them in a sentence, as well as, make a comic. This was pretty fun, and hard haha.

    Ekari is a cool artist who experiments with different mediums and has a lot of good work. Check it: http://blog.ashleighekari.com/

  9. #myart #video #exaveyur #puro oldies #lili papi

  10. This one was for the release of my exaveyur’s sold out Puro Oldies beattape.(under the alias: "Lil Papi") Everything about it is chicano/oldies culture. All the samples are from lowrider music, spanish films, and gang culture.

    I asked him if I could do the first half of it on the youtube channel to get more folks in the know. He agreed, and let me do it the way I want.

    I mainly made sure it stayed close to only have footage done by/worked on by Latinx to keep it true, but with some more insight within the culture. I tried to broaden it more to show latinx as whole group of people capable of an extensive, political, and human experience.

    I also wanted to keep the visual in tuned with the lofi sound, so I went with a tv theme of bad reception(lofi) to flicking through channels.(changing tracks)  

    You can listen to it here:

    http://elserenorecords.bandcamp.com/album/lil-papi-chapter-tres-esr003

    He’s a great artist who stopped doing music, but check out his stuff.

     
  11. #myart #video #Thallus #uglyabs

  12. This was for a line project in a class I had. We were to make lines but in a “non traditional” way. 

    I admit it gets a little long partway through, but I had fun doing it. 

    most of the material is stock footage except for some scenes.

    I also make videos with some friends on this youtube account. My videos are credited under “uglyabs”. (secrets out!)

    I’ll post two more of my favorites I did on the account.

     
  13. #myart #character models

  14. This was a go at some character models for a puzzle game my cousin wanted to make. He said he wanted “cute animals” altered by objects/items.

    He wasn’t clear about his vision, so I sent him these. They were fun to make. It didn’t fit the idea behind the game :( but he liked them and got me to do something else with his company.

     


  15. I decided to keep this strictly my artblog, so I’ll have a reblog-tumblr for other stuff from now on.

  16. #In the Mood for Love #Wong Kar-Wai #Maggie Cheung #Tony Leung #film poster #good film

  17. One day, I will draw all of Maggie Cheung and all the amazing outfits she wears in this film.

    I should do a film series of all the films I like so far as well.

    You can’t stop me.
