Robin Thicke is on his way to becoming the holder of the slot for #1 most popular song of all time. He is only 4 weeks from overtaking artists such as Elton John, Whitney Houston, and Mariah Carrey, and he’s already beaten Elvis fucking Presley.
Please stop listening to Blurred Lines. Stop watching the video. Stop buying the single. Just stop. For all that is good and holy in this world, do not do this to the history of music.
i hate this man with a burning passion and i would pay someone to punch him in the jaw so please stop listening to and supporting this stupid offensive song
Get. Over. Yourselves. It’s a fucking song.
It’s much more than a song.
It glorifies rape and objectifies women. The reason the image above isn’t from the original is because it’s from the feminist parody which switched men and women in their roles in the video. The feminist parody was taken down, but not the original, which violates the same rules. It’s a double standard.
When you feel you have lost everything, you still have
- unexpected kindness in strangers
- the rest of the world to travel
- languages to learn
- animals to take care of
- volunteer work to do
- the power of a good night’s rest
- the changing of seasons
- infinite things to learn
- billions of people to meet and possibly love
- billions of people who might love you back
remember when Raven did this show
remember when Raven also had an episode regarding racism
remember when Disney was good
Genderfuck by Toyota, starring Stav Strashko ;)
Watch the commercial here
Finally androgyns are taken seriously.
WORK IT BABY.
son of a bITCH HES GORGEOUS
Uhhh, can I BE you, please?
I also like the look the model gives the camera like ‘and you were expecting another over-sexualised commercial with a half naked woman for your male viewing pleasure. Mind fuck bitches.’
I was rolling my eyes so hard until the last gif.
if you think this is androgynous people taken seriously, that’s depressing. This commercial is obviously spinning on the effect of giving dudes confuse!boners and sending them into a gay panic. This is androgyny being exploited for sexuality. This is far from being taken serious, but okay
This. So the only way we can appreciate androgynous bodies, or even trans or other genderqueer bodies, is to sexualize them, particularly when they are being displayed as ‘female’? Wow, how profound.

Poor people stay poor because other artists have allowed the industry to degrade to a level that people drastically undervalue art. In graphic arts, an independent artist typically makes below minimum wage. So many people take advantage of starting out and struggling artists, that they offer “exposure” as compensation. Or a hideously low rate. I have had people offer to pay me just $5/page for color work. And they saw nothing wrong with this offer. This is for something that I typically spend 4-6 hours per page on. And there are artists out there so desperate for ANY money, they will accept those offers. And thus perpetuate the idea that this is okay.
No, poor people aren’t poor because they take art degrees. They’re poor because there are entitled assholes who take advantage of them so they can turn a bigger profit.
Art is everywhere. Try to imagine a world without it. Without graphics. Without font design. Without logos. Everything done in the same, bland typefaces, with no images and no sense of color. Artists are more than people who sit and make pretty pictures. They are what gives companies an image, an identity. So why are they treated like the lowest possible rank?
Poor people stay poor because they do arts degrees.
the new pope is homophobic. wow. shocking. i think i need to sit down to process this completely unexpected and unprecedented news
