Meeting People Is Easy
I like to understand what I'm shown.

loves: Léa Seydoux. Daniel Brühl. Tom Waits. David Lynch. Foreign film. Obscure cinema. Twin Peaks. Tragic soldiers. French women. Creating.
A recent transplant from livejournal, I want to use this space to share the creations I've made (and will make), such as fic and graphics. Such posts will not be locked, but my more personal posts will be.

I certainly don't mind meeting new people, which is why I'm here. So if the above sounds agreeable and we have something in common, leave a comment and let's see where this goes.

This is the start of something that may just end up being me blabbing on at myself, but even so, I feel it's something that I have to do.

I was (lovingly) prodded into this by my dear [livejournal.com profile] prellung after a series of private discussions we had through messaging one another on tumblr like the mad insomniac women that we are. It took a turn for the interesting when she challenged me with the fact that out of everything we discussed, there was clearly a restraint on my part when it came to giving my own personal views. Rather, those came out in other outlets, be it my writing or subjects I reblog on tumblr, but all in all, I keep an impersonal distance between myself and the content I post.

And you know, I get that. I declare myself, here on my own lj, tumblr, and frequently irl that I am a feminist, because, I am. There are many stances I take and beliefs I hold that I don't find myself discussing enough, especially with other women.

Which has led me to this.

I love a good discussion, and there's a lot I'd love to get into. So why not do it? I decided, every week, to have a discussion post in order to open a feminist dialogue. The topic will change every Saturday and will be focused on feminist/activist issues. It's going to get personal and messy on my part, but I welcome that. This won't be relegated to getting completely scholarly, but to be personal, because, quite frankly, I have a lot of feelings about a lot of things.

So, without further ado:

This week's post is focused on women and body image (something that I and many other women are well-acquainted with).

This post will remain unlocked. You don't have to be on my f-list to comment if you'd like. Anon commenting is also enabled, but comments that are purposely harmful/triggering will be deleted.

This post is NSFW, so head's up.

Stuff I've made and never posted/just got around now to sharing. Quite a mixed batch: Tom Waits, Chiaki Kuriyama, Thor, Grace Jones, Ben Whishaw, and Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling.

Not much, but something.

Idk, come on in. I don't mind the company.

I need you here and not here too )
