she took the photos

anonymous asked:

That's a bit ignorant of yours. Camille posed naked for Richardson - a man known to have exploited models before. And flashing your boobs for a camera doesn't suddenly grant you woman power. Neither does it make you a feminist. How can you not see how alienated sex has become when it's portrayed like this? I find it distasteful that a woman is ready to expose herself like that for... what? Sales? But of course you would defend Camille on that, your fave has her fair share of those shoots too.

I’m ignorant?

Terry Richardson is indeed one of the most controversial photographers to have ever existed, but what does this mean for shaming Camille? Is Camille being shamed because she posed for Terry Richardson or is it because this fandom has a tendency to obsessively hate women on things that if the boys had done they would have been given a free pass for? Is Camille being attacked over her body because of who took these photos or is it because she’s found herself involved with this God-awful fandom?

And what is it exactly that offends you about a woman posing nude in front of a camera, Anon? Does it make you uncomfortable? Does it make your skin crawl that a woman might decide to pose naked? Of course, it’s different when women are forced to do that, or women are being exploited or when women are objectified and pushed into a loop of “show flesh or you’re fired,” but your words here are implying much more, Anon. A woman feeling comfortable enough with herself and her body and choosing to express that through photography isn’t whoring off her body.

And it is absolutely within your right to find it distasteful or to not want to see it but that doesn’t make it okay to label it as looking for sales. Sales might be the result but that doesn’t mean that the woman doing it is doing it out of pure will to cash in on nakedness? I thought that was understood.

And as for Cheryl - unfortunately, yes, she was pushed into that loop because she was part of a manufuctured group that very soon had to respond to a certain standard to “sell”. Agreed. She’s never posed nude but there certainly are saucy pictures of her earlier years. But Cheryl was also very generally open about her sexuality and that came to bite her in the ass later on, when the media exploited it. But there are also pictures of her more recently where it is so clear that she is naked underneath a thin garment that covers her up - does that make her an attention-whore? That she feels comfortable in her own skin and within her own terms has decided to stand in front of a camera?

I just find it so hilarious that you dared make a reference to feminism when in your very next sentence you say “I find it distasteful that a woman is ready to expose herself like that”. What’s your point of view on men doing it, Anon? Where’s the rage for Liam posing shirtless and Harry doing the same? 

Where’s the rage for these boys holding their dicks and grinding while singing on tour? 

Not to say that there should be but I mean you all sure seem very offended by Camille holding her boobs.

Whether a woman chooses to expose intimate parts of herself to a camera for a purpose you are not aware of shouldn’t be this fandom’s concern, in my “ignorant” opinion. Cheryl being naked underneath  and Camille posing nude for a camera isn’t a new phenomenon and nude photography, when not imposed on someone, can be artistic and beautiful in its rawness.

But I’m fairly certain the last thing this fandom should be concerned about is these women being okay with themselves. Maybe you should be more concerned with this fandom’s internalized misogynism shown in spades than trying to draw a invalid point about how Cheryl and Camille having had revealing photoshoots is the reason why the world has been alienated to sex.

MET SAYO YAMAMOTO & FUUKO NODA OF YURI ON ICE AT A PANEL YESTERDAY AND HERE’S SOME NEW (?) CANON TIDBITS/OTHER INFO THEY RELEASED
  • The Yuri on Ice movie has been confirmed. I REPEAT. IT IS CONFIRMED. IT IS REAL. THEY’RE IN THE MIDDLE OF MAKING IT.
  • Symbolism at the ending scenes of Yuri on Ice episode 1 VS Yuri on Ice episode 12: In the first ep, Yuuri is in total disbelief as he practically falls over while running to see Victor bathing in the onsen. We see that it’s Victor reaching out to him:
  • In episode 12 it’s the other way around. Yuuri is willingly running towards Victor. The producers did these scenes on purpose to emphasize how much their relationship had grown & developed over the course of the series.

ALSO CONFIRMED BY NODA & YAMAMOTO THEMSELVES: THE MORE “CUTE” (VERBATIM: “KAWAII”), RELAXED, AND WARMER SIDE OF VICTOR IS SOMETHING ONLY YUURI KATSUKI AND YUURI KATSUKI ALONE GETS TO SEE.

  • CAN. YOU. HEAR. MY. HEARTBEAT. BECAUSE. I. AM. FUCKGN.
     S   C   R   E   A   M   I   N   G
  • Sayo Yamomoto, including male producers of YoI, practiced and did poses by themselves in their own homes/bathrooms in front of mirrors to try and see which would be the sexiest poses for Victor in the onsen scene.
  • CONFIRMED: Yuuri Katsuki is currently practicing in St. Petersburg with Victor Nikiforov. I would assume they live together but that’s just me but cmon guys who the hell are we kidding come ON  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • ALSO CONFIRMED: They totally would’ve shown the kiss in ep 7 (and probably even Victor’s dingdong lmao) if it weren’t for Japanese censorship rules.

We weren’t allowed to take photos of Fuuko Noda & Yamamoto (I think this is a standard thing across all cons with the producers attending), but here is proof that this was an actual thing and that I was there:

note the date!!! 9/30/2017.

OTHER THINGS FROM THE CON THAT IM STILL NOT DONE SCREAMING ABOUT:

So What’s The Deal With Cassini?

You’re going to see a lot of news in the next couple days about the space probe Cassini and its “Grand Finale,” which is finally coming to an end.  What’s it all about?

Cassini is a space probe launched in 1997 to explore Saturn. It took her seven years to get there (the first thing she did was head the opposite direction, to Venus, to pick up some momentum!) but she arrived safely in 2004.  She’s been out there collecting data and taking picture for us ever since!

Some amazing things Cassini has done so far:

  • She discovered new moons, Methone, Pallene, and Aegaeon!
  • She carried the space probe Huygens most of the way to its successful landing on Saturn’s moon Titan!
  • She discovered water (definitely vapor, and probably liquid too) on the moon Enceladus!
  • She took amazing photos of Saturn, allowing us to see previously undiscovered rings!
  • She found oxygen on the moons Rhea and Dione, the first time we’ve found it anywhere but earth!
  • She dove between Saturn and its rings!

Her 20 year mission ends this week, when she dives toward Saturn for the last time and burns up in the atmosphere.

What’s the timeline for the end of the Cassini mission?

It’s already started!  The Grand Finale stage of the mission officially began back in April.  We’re now entering the final hours.

September 9: Cassini passed between Saturn and its rings for the last time

September 11: Cassini completed her final flyby of Titan

September 13/14: Cassini takes her final photos of Saturn and its rings

September 14: Cassini begins its continuous data transmission to earth.  This will last until the mission completes.

September 15: Cassini enters Saturn’s atmosphere.

Why are we sending her to burn up?

We’re sending her to do so much more than that! She’ll be collecting and transmitting data to earth until the very last moments—data we couldn’t get any other way.

And the data she’s already given us make this mission conclusion (though a little wistful) very important!  By burning up in Saturn’s atmosphere, she guarantees that the potential life (supported by the water she discovered) on Saturn’s moons will remain uncontaminated by ay microbes that may have hitched a ride from earth.

If you don’t think that’s the raddest shit, I don’t know what to tell you!

headcanon time! so @deohsogay and i were talking and as we all know, vasquez is a giant fucking lesbian and has been out and proud since she was in high school probably and long story short, her gaydar is off the charts

so OBVIOUSLY she has alex figured out from the moment she steps into the deo. and at first she’s not sure if alex is just lowkey and private but then she realises wow alex does not know that she is in fact a giant lesbian

and this amuses vasquez to no end because alex is the gayest gay to ever gay in the history of gay, and she has absolutely no idea. and after a while it gets to vasquez and she cant hold it in anymore so their conversations go a little like this

‘vasquez i got a new motorbike!’
‘gay’
‘huh?’
‘i said yay! how exciting!’

‘vasquez i went to the movies last night and saw this one with kristen stewart in it she’s so cool i really like her’
‘lesbian’
‘what was that?’
‘thespian! you love actors!’

and when maggie shows up on the scene, you bet your ass vasquez hears all about the stupid, short, dimpled cop with shiny eyes who annoys the shit out of alex and vasquez is like oh my god she has a crush is this what it feels like to be proud of your children and she watches closely at the way alex smiles when maggie is around and she sees the way maggie looks at alex and she’s like ‘i give them three months and theyll be engaged’

‘it’s okay, vasquez i dont need back up, maggie’s coming with me’
‘you are so gay’
‘excuse me?’
‘you sure youre okay?’

ANYWAY so after this back and forth for years, FINALLY alex approaches vasquez one day and is like ‘hey susan did you know that maggie and i are dating and also i am gay’

and vasquez goes OH THANK GOD! and she pulls out this huge fucking scrapbook and it’s called DEOh So Gay: The Gaygent Danvers Story by susan vasquez and it’s literally a scrapbook made up of sneaky photos she took of alex’s gayest outfits and also written down documentation of every time alex said or did something gay and alex is blushing and also laughing because she’s so happy she’s come so far and vasquez is a good friend and also maggie loves it and it sits on their coffee table for the rest of their lives

rooney and rorey

fraternal twins, and opposites; where rooney is extrovert and outgoing rorey is introverted and awkward bordering on rude. rooney loves the outdoors and always being busy and rorey is a hermit with reclusive tendencies. the one thing they have in common is they are both athletic, but rooney likes things like hiking and running and rorey likes more competitive things like roller derby and motocross. rorey came to visit him for summer break and ended up staying so they recently rented out a bigger place

I want y'all to know that Chyler had 2.5 hours of sleep, JUST finished shooting her last episode, had multiple delays at the airport and while ON her plane, and had a huge issue with her phone being disconnected and she STILL came to see all of us at the East of Eli concert, sang with us, hugged all of us individually, and took photos and had convos with us. She is fucking LOYAL and cares a TON about her fans and she is honestly /so/ ride or die, like honestly when will ur fave EVER??

“Henry” So, I’ve always pictured Henry growing up to be the character on the animated short “Paperman”. I just have always thought that would be him as an adult so I made Once Upon A Time go “Paperman” with this fanart. I did two images because I just wanted to add some red for fun :). I need to credit @sgtmac7 for the photo she took that I used for this image (always credit the artist) and @efnewsservice where I saw the photo. Also, this is a large image and has a noise filter on it so if you want to print it without the filter just contact me and I can get you a smoother looking print. Oh, and Happy Fanart Friday

Last night at Gaga’s show in Sacramento, I had a backstage experience pass. After me and my group took our photo, she allowed me to pull her aside to tell her a story about my aunt who had passed away three years ago. I told her though she already knows that she helped me as a young kid who was a scared closeted gay with her album Born This Way.. now, as an adult, she helped me heal with Joanne in a very specific personal way that I never expected. I told her about my family and how my aunt’s Lisa’s passing was that moment she talks about in her show that “blasts you so hard you cant remember who you were before.” I then told her in my gift envelope that I had to leave with security, I had one of my aunt’s necklaces that I wanted to give for her to keep it. Gaga then told her people to go get it for her. 

When they brought my gift in and she saw that it was pearls, at first she told me she couldn’t take it as it was too special and insisted that she’ll take a picture with me with her wearing them to cherish but I needed to keep them. She put them on and we took the picture together but after I told her I wanted her to have it and it was ok. She teared up and I was trying not to cry in general the whole time so I apologized if I had made her uncomfortable by asking her to take them and she said no it wasn’t that, it just was too special and I’d regret it if I didn’t keep them. I told her that items don’t hold the most special memories of her for my family and that we have a lot of stuff of hers. I told her this represented a significant powerful woman who shaped my mine and my family’s life similarly how she did for me. I said I wanted to represent the women that had a huge effect on both of us, like Joanne, and she should have it because the album helped heal my heart. Eventually, she agreed to keep them after I told her “I’m not much of a pearl girl anyways” and she laughed at me. She asked for my aunts name one more time and I reminded her that it was Lisa. I left the room with her still wearing them. 

Then, later in the show she came out on stage wearing them and this happened.

ok but imagine that after recovering the book and talking with Fu, Ladybug tells Chat about it (Adries is obviously internal screaming because ‘holy shit Ladybug has father’s book’) and she shows him some photos of the book she managed to took and then the Peacock miraculous appears and Chat is like ‘wait i have seen this before…’ And he remembers seeing it inside his father’s safe.

And Adrien minds kind of shortcut because he concludes that his father must have been/be a holder and now he wants to talk to him because ‘omg my father had/has a miraculous! we can talk about it! i can ask him and not hide anything since he already knows and had a book!’

So Adrien returns to his house and is beaming and excited because he can finally talk to someone about him being Chat Noir and finally have bonding time with his father. And wothout listening to Plagg because Adrien is way too happy, he runs into his father office and tells him:

 ‘Father, I know who you are! I know you have a Miraculous! I have it too! I’m Chat Noir! We can fight together! We can do superhero things together! We can be a team and fight with Ladybug against Hawkmoth!′

‘We can be a family again!’

And Gabriel just pales.

jason likes braiding kori’s hair just because it’s soothing to them both, and anything that helps jay unwind is something that kori and roy will get behind immediately. it ends with her hair in a different braid each time because jay doesn’t like to keep things simple and roy is always bringing up new things to try

Tess at the Garage Show

My friend (who is not publicly on Tumblr) was at the show yesterday and told me what she saw at Harry’s gig. She wanted me to pass this along.
