If haute couture had a patron saint, it would be Lady Amanda Harlech.

One of the most inspiring people I have ever met.

today is the worst i have felt in months and i’m so lucky to no longer have to deal with the extreme pain and terror of my depression and anxiety on a daily basis but I don’t know how to deal with it today when all of my friends have moved to far away places and I’m stuck at home, in a town I will never feel safe in.

Women Artists Visibility Event: The Museum of Modern Art opens but not to women artists, NYC on June 14, 1984
Shot by Clarissa Sligh

Despite the increased visibility of women artists by 1984, most were not included in mainstream gallery or museum exhibitions. When the Museum Of Modern Art opened the exhibition the “International Survey of Painting and Sculpture,” with great fan fare, of the 169 artists chosen, all were white and less than 10 percent were women.

Women artists were incensed. The Women’s Caucus for Art and other women’s groups in the area organized to protest the underrepresentation of women artists.

Included in the photographs are Lucy Lippard, May Stevens, Linda Cunningham, Emma Amos, Sabra Moore, Sharon Jaddis, and Alida Walsh. The posters were pasted all over Soho, a vastly different place from the Soho of today.

One day, I want to blast the L Word theme song in a busy public place and see how many lesbians turn.

I already made a separate post with a tweet I made regarding the subject, but I wanted to speak about it in further detail.

This morning I was enjoying a cup of hot chocolate at the beach by myself when a man I have never seen before grabbed my head from behind to adjust it so he could observe the tattoos behind my ear and on the back of my neck. I was so terrified I couldn’t even move. When he had the audacity to ask me, “What do the diamonds behind your ear mean?” I flipped. 

"How dare you invade my personal space and touch me without my consent! I should knock your teeth down your throat for that!"

"— but I just wanted to see your tattoos!" 

Unfortunately, things like this are very common in the body modification community. People grab my arms to look at my sleeves or my hands to look at my hand/finger tattoos, some will adjust the top of my shirt to look at my chest piece, a few have lifted up my skirts and dresses to look at the tattoos on my shins and thighs, and one person grabbed the bottom of my lip and pulled it out when they saw I had a tattoo inside my lip.

I hear countless stories like mine on a daily basis. Some include how people will stick their fingers in the lobes of someones ear, how people will touch the piercings on someones face and ask “did it hurt?”, and how people will touch the bodies of others to observe their tattoos. It’s a trend that seriously needs to end.

You shouldn’t touch anyone without their permission, but people seem to think it’s justifiable to touch someone with body modifications because “I just want to see!” Nothing justifies or excuses it. Body modifications doesn’t mean people can touch us without our consent. Please respect the individual spaces of others and knock it off.

jesus this even happens what the actual living breathing fuck


People seem to think that when you have mods all common decency and social queues go out the window. They feel entitled to tell us what they think of our body, something women experience already, and they think they’re ok in taking “sneaky” photos, or acting like assholes.

I can’t count the number of times I’ve had people take photos of my tattoos without my permission, or people who feel the need to tell me my ears are gross or that I would look so much prettier without so much metal on my face.

This shit is unacceptable and I’m sick of it.
