Phenomenal Women in Film
I say, It’s in the reach of my arms, the span of my hips, the stride of my step, the curl of my lips. I’m a woman, Phenomenally. Phenomenal women, That’s me -Maya Angelou (x)
Jay DeFeo - The Rose (1958-69)
“The story of Jay DeFeo and The Rose is both a cautionary tale of obsession and an inspiring tale of determination and belief. She began working on The Rose in 1958. She was 29 years old and for the next eight years, she did little else but sit on a stool in her studio, smoking cigarettes, drinking Christian bothers brandy while she painted and scraped away at her vision.
First titled The Deathrose, then The White Rose and finally just The Rose, DeFeo only stopped working on the painting when an increase in rent forced her from her studio. By then it was 1966, her marriage was ending, she was in fragile physical and mental health, and The Rose had become too large to fit out the door.
At nearly 12 feet high and in places eight inches thick, The Rose was constructed from layer upon layer of built up and scraped away black and white paint. DeFeo added mica chips to the paint and so The Rose has its own interior light.”
As a guy, I think the top one looks way better. Just sayin’.
yeah, guy here, top looks way better
You know what’s crazy?! That some women don’t wear makeup to impress men. Some women do it because they like it. When I wear 5 different colors on my eyes with bright ass pink lipstick I KNOW that shit ain’t cute. But you know why I do it? Because makeup is about having fun and being artistic. So if you don’t like my fabulously defined eyebrows I’m okay with that, I didn’t need your approval anyways. I just think some men really need to put their egos to the side and STOP thinking that everything women do is to impress you guys.
Yeah, because women wear high-heels because they’re SO comfortable, right?
No, women (at least me and my friends) wear heels because they’re fun to wear. Sure, they get uncomfortable, but we’re not wearing them for comfort, we’re wearing them to feel good and because we feel sexy in them.
And you’re probably gonna be like “but why do you want to look sexy? For men.”
But no. I like feeling sexy because it helps with MY confidence. It’s not about other guys, i’m already in a committed relationship, but I like feeling good about how I look. Also, even before my relationship I would wear sexy lacy underwear and bras, but NO ONE were seeing them, so why did I wear them? Certainly not because they’re comfortable. Because I feel great about myself when I’m wearing them.
Here’s my two cents for the beta males that have a problem with the high heel makeup wearing ladies. Don’t date them.
Go date a girl who doesn’t wear makeup or high heels.
Write to your favorite nudie magazine and ask for less airbrushed no makeup wearing models for you to wank to
Stop telling other women what to do with their bodies
And stop believing that any expression of a women’s self is directly meant to please your prick
