    Blur recording “To The End (La Comedie) with Francoise Hardy (by Uktahhh).  Nothing better than Francoise Hardy while cooking.  Makes it less of chore and more an experience.

    KIKI de Montparnasse [a graphic biography]

    by José-Luis Bocquet & Catel Muller

    During the first quarter of the 20th century, Paris welcomed the painters, sculptors and writers who had been told that the capital of France was the homeland of Art_they were Spanish, Italian, Polish, Russian, American, Scandinavian, Japanese, Moroccan, South American_they were called Picasso, Modigliani, Kisling, Soutine, Foujita, Chagall, Pascin, Tzara, Hemingway, Stein, Krogh, or Wahab_they would write the legend of Montparnasse_

    In Châtillon-sur-Seine, Alice Prin knew nothing about Art_she arrived in Paris at 13, a poor girl who believed in the prospects that life in the big city could afford her_after World War One, with no one to rely on but herself, she keeps tumbling down the social ladder_worse than a whore: she becomes a model_

    imageimage

    Renamed Kiki, she will go on to become the Queen of Montparnasse_Kiki managed to escape poverty to become one of the most charismatic figures of the avant-garde years between the wars_partner to Man Ray, whose most legendary photos she inspired -both would be immortalized by hissurreal “Violon d’Ingres”, in which she lends her naked back to two cello curls- she also would be immortalised by Kisling, Foujita, Per Krohg, Calder, Utrillo and Leger_Kiki is the muse of a generation that seeks to escape the hangover of the Great War, but she is above all one of the first emancipated women of the 20th century_ image

    When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And then when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty. The world teaches you that the way you exist in it is disgusting — you watch boys cringe backward in your dorm room when you talk about your period, blue water pretending to be blood in a maxi pad commercial. It is little things, and it is constant. In a food court in a mall, after you go to the gynecologist for the first time, you and your friend talk about how much it hurts, and over her shoulder you watch two boys your age turn to look at you and wrinkle their noses: the reality of your life is impolite to talk about. The world says that you don’t have a right to the space you occupy, any place with men in it is not yours, you and your body exist only as far as what men want to do with it. At fifteen, you find fifteen-year-old boys you have never met somehow believe you should bend your body to their will. At almost thirty, you find fifteen-year-old boys you have never met still somehow believe you should bend your body to their will. They are children. They are children.
    — Stevie Nicks (via sister-bell)

    Rape happens. Rape happens a lot. If you know six women, you probably know someone who has been raped. We live in a culture that doesn’t tell men not to rape; it tells women not to get raped. If they do get raped, they are taught by our society, through the images and words our society produces, that it was their fault. Meanwhile, the same images and words encourage rapists to do what they do.

    So, what’s the solution? Being educated is a good place to start. Acknowledge and appreciate just how many women are raped or face the risk of rape daily. Read at least some of this post about the actual, tangible effects of rape culture instead of brushing it off as this vague, abstract notion. Consciously note the many depictions of a woman’s sexuality as clearly directed by males for males, and how often this plays into a rhetoric of victim blaming is also a good idea. Don’t stay out of the argument by just flicking it off with a “well it’s okay to like it and it’s okay not to like it” bullshit kind of comment. No. It is not okay to like this. It simply isn’t. It shouldn’t be up to a few brave women to stick their necks out on male-safe websites at the whim of the commenting hive-mind to tell us what the problem is with our rape culture, putting their own online safety at risk. Rape shouldn’t be a women’s issue, it should be a men’s issue because we are the ones that keep fucking doing it and keep perpetuating the culture. It’s about time we took responsibility for that ourselves.

    And, gentlemen, that really kind of angry defensive feeling you got in your gut while you read this post where you felt attacked? That was your privilege kicking. Every time you think something is sexist towards men, there is a pretty good chance the playing field is just being leveled out
