My Context

I’ve had this photo for a little while, but I felt unsure about posting it.

I love this picture of myself. I love the vibrancy of my hair, I love how striking my tattoos are. This picture showcases everything about the way that my body looks that I cultivated and chose myself. I feel strong and self-possessed when I look at it. I don’t feel exposed or lascivious.

“Is that the kind of thing you want out in the world?” someone asked me when I asked if I should post it. “What will people think?”

I realized that I wanted to post it because these are the kinds of things people asked me when I started tattooing myself. I was asked them again when I started dying my hair unnatural -or as I like to think, supernatural- colors. They were deeply concerned with how others would view me. People with tattoos are criminals, girls with tattoos are promiscuous and uneducated. People with wild hair are unprofessional and immature. I was told that I was setting myself up to be unsuccessful, unemployable, unlovable, unmarry-able. As someone who looks “alternative” and “like a Suicide Girl”, I’m sexualized and judged on first sight, online and in real life, every day.

I accepted that when I began to change my appearance this way that people would make these judgements. It is worth it. I get tattooed and dye my hair and shave the back of my head because it’s what I want to look like. I love the way that I look. It’s how I’ve always wanted to look. I love that I have the freedom and control and ability to make these choices about my appearance. This gives me confidence and happiness.

Those people were wrong, anyway. I am successful, employed and loved. The only thing I was setting myself up for was an easy way to to discern which people were judgmental, creepy garbage. 

It’s always frustrating and a disappointment when I receive negative judgement from people about my appearance. It’s always nice when I receive respectful compliments and appreciation about my appearance. My boyfriend finds my tattoos and weird hair very sexy and that’s wonderful. But if no one ever said anything and my boyfriend was completely neutral about it, that would be fine, too. It’s all for me. 

So why post this picture? Why isn’t it enough to have it to myself? It is, essentially, just another topless photo of a tattooed chick. There are scores of websites dedicated to this very thing.

I am constantly sexually harassed by men- on the street, in bars, on social media. They look at pictures of me in sweaters and enter lewd comments, send creepy messages. When I was sexually assaulted a couple of years ago, the only skin I had visible was on my face. It doesn’t matter what you are or aren’t wearing. 

People look at me with judgement daily. I can’t control how you see me, internet reader. But I can present myself with context. That feels powerful. I can show you how I see myself, how I look in this picture. Self-created. Brave. Resolute.

[Massive thanks to Allan Amato, the wondrous talent and incredible gem of a human who photographed this.]

Voltron Family AU photo album!! 

Shiro and Allura fell in love at college. She studied engeneering and he studied physics. After 3 years of dating, Shiro finally went to Coran and asked Allura’s hand in marriage. They had a simple wedding where Coran led Allura to the altar and Matt himself led Shiro. Life went by and they finally had a steady job, so they decided it was time to have a baby. Shiro was so amazed and anxious about it, he passed out during the birth of Hunk. But they couldn’t have just one!!! Both wanted a big family, and so Allura was pregnant again and she was 120% sure that it was going to be a girl, she even bought a lot of dresses and dolls. In the end Lance was born and he had to use dresses until he was 3 years old (but they love him!!!). After 2 years Matt’s sister, Pidge, was born and Shiro was made her godfather (he was so honored, he cried a lot). Pidge and the boys basically grew together. 

Meanwhile Shiro volunteered to help in some orphanages and in one of these he met Keith. He was 6 at the time, same age as his son, Lance. Shiro started visiting more and more Keith and the little boy only grew more and more affectionate to Shiro. Takashi saw a lot of families reject Keith and saw how sad the boy grew. He talked to Allura, their family wasn’t big enough, there was room for more, and so, after a lot of burocracy they adopted Keith when he has 8 years. 

That was the happiest day of Keith’s life.

He’s such an awesome dude despite his uh… quirks and omg can we just take a moment to appreciate him and mourn cause I’m so distraught like there’s tears everywhere.
