I’m actually concerned for boys who complain about how different girls look without makeup. Like did you think eyeshadow permanently alters a girls eyelid? Are you frightened when people change clothes

I think they’re concerned that they’re somehow being deceived.

This gets to the core of the opposition to marriage equality. Some people cannot imagine a marriage that does not have one person who is, always and without question, the one in charge. That person is “the husband.” 

A marriage that proves that one person doesn’t always have to be “the husband” always and forever does actual damage to the idea that a wife can be an equal partner.

And that’s how marriage equality does damage to “traditional” marriage.

Let’s burn traditional marriage to the ground.

This ‘personal space’ dress could solve all your public transportation woes.

CREDIT THE INVENTOR: SHE IS AN ARTIST NAMED KATHLEEN MCDERMOTT WHO IS FINISHING HER MFA IN HONG KONG

Also she is developing this technology literally to help women assert their space in public AND MAKE A STATEMENT about how women are treated in patriarchal societies! She is developing other clothes too! You can support her project here: http://www.kthartic.com/index.php?/class/about-urban-armor/

More info:

The dress is the second in a series of projects called Urban Armor, which aim to help women own their space in public arenas that often attempt to deny this right. As McDermott explains in the project statement: “The series arose partly out of my concern over the persistence of ideologies asserted at women in public space through advertising, architecture and socially normative behavior. I began to look for ways women could take more ownership over their personal space in public.”

Basically this woman is a badass feminist artist. Please support her work and spread the word

I want one :3

Boundaries are important (both in and out of the bedroom)!
