Choi Xoo Ang’s Disturbing Sculptures
Choi Xoo Ang, the Seoul born artist and dark master of the imagination, has created sculptures at once hyperrealistic and completely nightmarish, making you feel as if your real life has bled into an inescapable, bad dream.
Twisted tongues, stitched backs and floating heads appear throughout Choi’s polymer clay figures, which display remarkable realism despite their fabulous content. Many of the pieces give metaphorical shape to real issues in modern day Korea, including human rights and abuse.
i love this
one of your heroes, Han Solo, realized he was going to be friendzoned by the girl he likes and ACCEPTED it and chose not to call her a bitch, even promising to not get in their way as a couple.
Sincerely, Be Like HanHan
I think it’s the first time I see gifsets of this scene with comments that focus on how Han Solo respects Leia’s feelings instead of incest jokes. Kudos to you, tumblr user jamesfactscalvin :)
This man is my hero.
Anyone who uses “rape” and “regret sex” in the same sentence is not worth your time. Rape is not sex. Sex is consensual. Rape is an act of violence used to humiliate and control.
Rape causes serious trauma. Sex may have consequences, but PTSD is not one of them.
Don’t ignore a rape survivor just because:
You believe the myth of false reporting
You lack compassion
You are mad about misandry
Ignorance is a choice you make.
Listen to a survivor today.]
Hey there. I saw the “regret sex” poster thing you reblogged earlier. I really appreciated your commentary, and the whole thing got me thinking. I mean, it got me really pissed off about rape culture and the people who thought it was okay to make that poster in the first place, but also thinking. So in response, I made a “fixed it” poster. I don’t know if it’s the best it could be (there might be problems with my phrasing? it was just something I made off the top of my head) but I wanted to share it with someone who might understand and not ridicule me for it. Thank you for running this blog.
I have never understood the logic of this kind of thing.
Merriam-Webster defines rape as “to force (someone) to have sex with you by using violence or the threat of violence”. The word sex is literally in the definition. That’s just one dictionary but every definition I have found has the word sex in it. That same dictionary defines sex act as “an action performed with another person for sexual pleasure”. So rape is still sex, sex that is traumatic, horrible and painful but it’s still sex.
I have never understood this desperate desire some people have to let us all know they live and die by the dictionary (whenever it’s convenient, of course).
First of all, this was a response to a poster that literally said “regret sex” and compared it to “rape sex”. Actual words. Do you see what that’s implying there? By that provided definition, someone saying they had sex could literally be saying they raped someone, but is that what pops into your mind? No. When someone talks about having had sex, you immediately picture something consensual. David Lisak discovered that he could get rapists to admit to it by asking them about things that were actually rape without using the r-word. Here are some of the questions:
Have you ever been in a situation where you tried, but for various reasons did not succeed, in having sexual intercourse with an adult by using or threatening to use physical force (twisting their arm, holding them down, etc.) if they did not cooperate?
Have you ever had sexual intercourse with someone, even though they did not want to, because they were too intoxicated (on alcohol or drugs) to resist your sexual advances (e.g., removing their clothes)?
Have you ever had sexual intercourse with an adult when they didn’t want to because you used or threatened to use physical force (twisting their arm; holding them down, etc.) if they didn’t cooperate?
Have you ever had oral sex with an adult when they didn’t want to because you used or threatened to use physical force (twisting their arm; holding them down, etc.) if they didn’t cooperate?
Have you ever fondled (e.g., handled, massaged, caressed) a child’s genitals or had them fondle yours?
Have you ever had oral sex with a child-e.g., either you performed oral sex on them, or they on you, or both?
Notice something? “Had oral sex”, “had sexual intercourse”. Even though the word “force” was used, that wasn’t an issue for them.
Rape is often reported on in the same way. Take this story about Amber Kraus, a teacher who raped one of her students. The headline is “Amber Kraus, Science Teacher, Accused Of Sex With High School Student”. The tags include the words “sex scandal” and “teacher sex” but not rape. Other gems include describing it as “carrying on a sexual relationship” and pointing out that she’s not the only teacher “to face allegations of sex with a student this year”.
And that is why we do our best to avoid calling it sex.
