Artist: chotpot, Source: [link] Because Society is an Ass when it comes to Gender not fitting in ''neat little constructed boxes''; however Gender is much more complex than what we normally give it credit for. Sex is what we're assigned at birth given the appearance of our genitalia and/or medically tested chromosomes, etc. (fuck those shitty doctors). According to Society only two boxes exist: Male and Female - biologically and by reproductive means, yes I suppose (and Intersex is almost always ''corrected'' without the consent of the child, seriously fucked up beyond fucked). We're then expected to act in a socially constructed way based on these two labels - Man/Boy, Woman/Girl - that will follow us for the rest of our lives unless we make full surgical transitions that hardly anyone has the money for and not everybody wants (because truth be told Transphobia and other phobias do exist in the medical field so these doctors aren't always willing to make your new bottom parts pretty). Gender is separate from Sex; it is an Identity within the brain and is totally accurate regardless of Sex. And Sexual Orientation is also different; it can be whatever it wants to be regardless of Gender Identity. Though regardless of whatever labels out there exist (there's too many to count), we're all just People no matter what. Our whole Society is based around who-is-what and what-is-this but this little cute comic really goes to show any of this is not that big of a deal and Sex shouldn't be used as a tool to judge the Human Race. But sadly, it persists.

Not that I claim to be any good, but I'd still appreciate if the greatest respect was given for my work. PLEASE DO NOT: Trace, recolour, or claim my ''ugly'' images as your own work (they're not even marketable). Must I mention references? I half-hope trolls don't find my crap *that* attractive enough to go that far. (Remember: You may steal the scan/photo and place your own name on it, but I will always have the original.)
I only give points to close friends who deserve it and for good causes (i.e. groups that support the fight against abuse, rape, cancer, passive racism and sexism, hate crimes against the LGBTQ community, etc.), sorry.
Awesome Causes/Groups I Support:
“Don’t deny differences. Accept them, appreciate them, recognise them, and cherish them. They are extremely important.”
“Because we are still conditioning people in this country and, indeed, all over the globe to the myth of white superiority. We are constantly being told that we don’t have racism in this country anymore, but most of the people who are saying that are white. White people think it isn’t happening because it isn’t happening to them.''
“I’m sorry, but…I cannot shed tears for a young white female in this exercise who knows that this is an exercise, who knows that this is temporary, who knows that she is getting one hour of college credit for being here. I’m sorry, but I have to save my sympathy and empathy for those who have to go through something much worse than this every single day.” --Jane Elliott

''Take out your hockey stick, and use it as a sword!''
Well, since theatre is art related...
Opening night was last Thursday, 11 April at the Shubert Theatre! Alright, I'm late... been caught up with something called Life.
Asides, there's rave reviews fucking left and right (okay, some people just like to be dicks for the sake of being dicks but their opinions technically don't matter). At the moment, what can be more Totally Awesome?
In case it isn't immediately obvious for some, yes, this is THE Matilda, Roald Dahl's Matilda - in other words, one of the most fantastic, creepy, abusive children's books ever invented and now it's one of the best musicals ever being performed.
Revolting children... Living in revolting times... We sing revolting songs Using revolting rhymes.
It's been firing up a storm in Stratford's Royal Shakespeare Company and in London's West End since 2010 and now it's doing the same on Broadway! Also since it's doing so well, it's bound to become an international musical. Oh yes, and it's NOT Americanised! They were seriously considering it though-
-in the same way Steven Spielberg wanted to make an animated Harry Potter set in an American school. It would have been a fucking disaster if that were the case so it's too good to be true they didn't go down that route. In truth, I can't see why everything has to be Americanised as if America is the centre of Neverland.
There was a decision about whether it should be English or American, and I think it would sustain itself perfectly well everyone did American accents, there's nothing inherently parochial about the story. However, there is an English-ness to it that is best served by staying English, so that decision was made.
If it ever gets the chance to perform at the Tonys (if not this year then hopefully next year) the ceremoony will Fucking Explode with caffeinated 10-year-olds setting the stage on fire, ''The Bitch of Living/Totally Fucked'' style (only more kid friendly)!
While I can't actually see the show in New York right now - or ever (dammit) - I've just recently become a fan admiring observer of the show. It's immensely difficult not to appreciate something that looks this freaking marvelous and mind blowing incredible. Can we just take a moment to admire how outstanding the whole product is from the sets to the singing dancing munchkins ridiculously young cast to the addicting soundtrack?
Why the fuck am I ranting nonsense? Just see for yourselves, you won't regret taking these few moments from your boring daily lives since if only reality were a little more like theatre:
And some highlights from the London cast just because:
And this here is precisely the best song since Spring Awakening's ''The Bitch of Living'' and ''Totally Fucked'' (turn up the volume all the way, folks):
So wot the hell are ye doin' sittin' are yer arses for? Get a freakin' ticket while it's still piping hot!
The show won't disappoint.
Rejoice, my theatergoing comrades. The children's revolution has arrived on these shores, and it is even more glorious than we were promised. Rush now, barricade stormers of culture, to the Shubert Theater, and join the insurrection against tyranny, television, illiteracy, unjust punishment and impoverished imaginations, led by a 5-year-old La Pasionaria with a poker face and an off-the-charts I.Q.
