I am not a soft woman. My shoulders never relax. My brows judge, and my lips kiss in frowns. My back, you cannot trail down with your mouth, and expect silk. I have claws I rarely clip. A happy trail to where I ache, where I beg for you to please, if you can make it through another forest. I am…
“I’ve seen the footage. The only thing you really fight for is yourself. You’re not the guy to make the sacrifice play, to lay down on a wire and let the other guy crawl over you… you may not be a threat, but you better stop pretending to be a hero.” – The Avengers (2012)
(Nooooo Steve!! IT’S NOT TRUE)Portrait from my cinema-inspired solo show, which opened June 7th at NYC’s Bottleneck Gallery! Limited edition prints available here, they’re all hand-signed and numbered, and part of the proceeds go to the charity Partners in Health!
…which is why I’m still on YouTube at 1 am.

This is pretty cool and eye-opening. I wish someone would do this sort of thing with male 6-pack ab models.
They even Photoshopped the woman behind Selena’s arm, because apparently not only do celebrities have to be thin, but they must also only associate with other thin people…
Enrico Francis has been caught
This pisses me off so incredibly much!
This is ridiculous. And disgusting. beautiful people being photoshopped to fit impossible standards AND most of the non-caucasian women are being white washed so they look more “appealing”
SO ANGRY. I can’t find the words to say just exactly what I feel about this…gahhhhhh just no.
AND THEY FUCKING PHOTOSHOPPED OUT “ELTON JOHN AIDS FOUNDATION” FOR THIS ENRICO FRANCIS DUDE HOLY FUCK
It is always good to remember that you can be lied to in pictures…I remember the first time I saw a “before & after airbrushing a model” play-by-play in sassy magazine, with the two pictures side by side. I was probably 13, and it changed my life. thanks, sassy, and thanks whoever did this. if nothing - it’s good to remember how manipulative the media can be. if you can’t fight it - you can at least see it. as a minor celebrity, I cringe everytime allow myself to be photoshopped. but I still allow it. magazines and press work that way. I’ve photoshopped myself for press photos (that pimple? easy to fix. that annoying hair? gonzo. no wrinkles though…I draw the line there.) the most disturbing one for me was the random back-ground woman’s, behind Selena Gomez. the photoshopped the BACKGROUND people? wow. do we love perfect? or do we love human? why isn’t human perfect? what’s happened to us?
I don’t even feel angry anymore, just incredibly sad.
Look what I just got, look, look, look, @amandapalmer, look! (Can you tell I’m excited?) Finally! Can’t wait for November!
Aww its face is all scrunched.
