Kirsty Mitchell’s late mother Maureen was an English teacher who spent her life inspiring generations of children with imaginative stories and plays. Following Maureen’s death from a brain tumour in 2008, Kirsty channelled her grief into her passion for photography.
She retreated behind the lens of her camera and created Wonderland, an ethereal fantasy world. The photographic series began as a small summer project but grew into an inspirational creative journey.
‘Real life became a difficult place to deal with, and I found myself retreating further into an alternative existence through the portal of my camera,’ said the artist. (read the rest here).
Your pupils dilate when you see the person you are attracted to. Because the nervous system controls the muscles of the irises, the response of the nervous system to different stimuli results in involuntary pupil dilation. Another commonly cited reason the pupils dilate is in response to excitement or sexual arousal. When a person sees something or someone they find very attractive, their eyes may dilate.
It’s sad how old this picture is, and yet, we still have to do this.
everyone needs to reblog
I liked this so I could come back and find it. I don’t like it. I hate it. I want to punch this kid in the face.
Gaga has a lot of problems, a massive list of problems, but whatever else she is, she’s also a bisexual woman and policing her queerness is bullshit. erasing her queerness is bullshit.
all the people I see tagging this post and the other, with the actual video, with “LGBT,” why are you bothering to include the B? what do you think it stands for? because supporting the erasure of Gaga’s queerness says to me that you either don’t believe the B exists, don’t believe it has the same value as the L, G, and T, or you feel qualified to judge who is and who isn’t queer. and if you believe any of those things, fuck you.
and if people don’t know that Gaga is bisexual, and that’s why they’re supporting this, that’s even more reason to stop doing it. if her queer identity wasn’t constantly being denied and erased, then you would know.
assigning value to or privileging some kinds of queerness over others is damaging as hell and ignorant as fuck. if you want to take on all the ways that Gaga is problematic, go for it, I’ll be right there with you. but saying she’s not queer enough is bullshit.
