this female form

A girl dancing with a garland of flowers. Jean-Frédéric Schall (French, 1752-1825). Oil on panel.

Schall’s works are mostly small in scale and executed with a characteristic liveliness in form. His female subjects, particularly his dancers, portray an idealized femininty with delicate facial features and impossibly slim waists.

It can be painful to fill out forms, when the only options are “male” and “female.” It’s wrong that bureaucracy demands these ridiculous sacrifices from us.

But no matter how much these systems try to whittle at our resolve, wage war against our sense of self, or flat out refuse to acknowledge that we exist,

we are stronger than them.

We are better than their ignorance.

And a little peice of paper or page on a screen can’t ever change that.


Under the cut you’ll find roughly 258 gifs (if not counting the lighter copies, if counting lighter copies then there are 324 gifs) of the gorgeous Ryan Destiny from Star Season 1 Episode 1. Destiny is an up and coming actress who has acted as Grace in A Girl Like Grace and now plays Alexandra Crane in Star. Ethnically, she is of black(unspecified) descent, so please cast her accordingly. Also she has confirmed she was born in ‘95 not in ‘98 like many people have said she is. The gifs are all small/medium, textless, and mostly hq. Any repeats were completely unintentional or made with a lighter version which are right after each other. I made all of these gifs and honestly you can use them in anyway but if you add them to a crackship or gif hunt or anything of the sort please give me credit. Please like or reblog if you plan on using. NSFW TW. Like there are gifs where someone is in lingerie but not worse than that. Thank you! 1/?
