    Cycling gives you tough, strong, muscular thighs, and whatever shape yours are - whatever crap the media spins about why they’re the “wrong” shape - we think you should be proud of them. We’ve appropriated this playground taunt (that clearly stems from a fear of being crushed by said thighs)…

    Our Thunder Thighs leggings are up on the shop!! Very limited run so grab yours now!!

    "Gelb"/ latest art piece on the train in Berlin. Yesterday me and Clemencé started project "Hoist that rag" and took it to lots of different places in Berlin to see how the meaning/ intensity of meaning changed in different locations. Going to make a book from the photos and put them on my website, it works better if you see them as a series. #publicart #art #flag #textiles #berlin #gelb #yellow #situationism

Elaine Stritch rests her bike, reads a note, almost causes a riot.      
NEW YORK, June 26—TOLD TO KEEP HER SHIRT ON – Blonde Elaine Stritch, understudy to Ethel Merman in the Broadway hit, “Call Me Madam,” wears halter and shorts which cause her arrest in Central Park. Today she was fined $1 and told by Magistrate Emilio Jones, “A beautiful girl like you could cause a small riot and cause a large crowd to collect by removing your shirt.” “Well,” she replied, “I was there all day and nothing happened.” (AP, 1951)

    fuckyeahpaganism:

Hag stones, also known as Holey Stones or Witch Stones, are stones that have a naturally occurring hole and are usually found near oceans and other bodies of water. They are said to be powerful protection talismans, and when worn or carried they protect the bearer from curses, hexes, negative spirits, and harm. They have also been used to prevent nightmares, being strung on a bedpost or placed underneath pillows. It is also believed that if you peer through the hole of the stone that you can see the Fae Folk and otherworldly entities. If one broke, it is thought to have used its power to protect a life.

    War On Women - Broken Record →

    beingunsinn:

    What was it I was thinking to myself just moments before? Oh yeah, “Hey asshole!
    I’m just trying to walk down the street.
    I’m not yr girl; I’m not yr baby.
    What I’m wearing has only to do with the weather.
    Stop leering, motherfucker, stop staring.
    I’ve tried everything I can think of; sometimes I get angry, sometimes I ignore you.
    But I swear you will never get the answer you’re looking for.”
    You’re like a fucking broken record: “Say yes, say yes, say yes, say yes”
    Take all the time you need, girl. Make every step deliberate, girl.
