Illusions of the Body was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays the only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.
Within the series I tried get a range of body types, ethnicities & genders to show how everyone is a different shape & size; there is no “normal”. Each photo was taken with the same lighting & the same angle.
Celebrate your shapes, sizes & the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird & beautiful thing.

Such a loss.
Day 3: Best Friend - this special creature has been in my life for over three years now and my life is so much better for it. She’s my best friend, my soulmate of sorts, we’re two sides of the same coin. She understands me like no one else, we make sense to each other and it’s one of the most comforting feelings in the world! She’s helped me through so much and had been by my side through the biggest most important part of my life. She’s thought me so much about myself and life in general, about the person I want to be and the life I want to live. She’s one of the most loving, loyal, intelligent, creative and inspiring people I’ve had the honour of meeting, never mind befriending to this level. I love my friend, The Cat ^___^ <3 also, she’s my crush for #wcw because she’s also stunningly beautiful <3 #womenscrushwednesday #day3 #decemberphotochallenge #photoaday #photochallenge #bestfriend #loveher #bbf - this photo was also chosen for a reason, that whole day was so us XD @darcula_dreads
This made me vewy happy :)
I’d never, ever hurt a lady but I’d be happy to punch a feminist.
It’d bring me great joy.

Marvelous feminist men/1
You, me and my depression
Depression fucks hard

Some peace today. My mind is quieter, I’m smoking less, reality is settling in.
This is the death of a possibility, that is all. now there are new possibilities and I’ve learned so much. Really, I’m lucky - at least there are so many beautiful memories to take out for admiration when I feel like it. So many moments that make me smile
With all that under my belt, onward and upward!

I like what this Army officer had to say about sexual harassment in the military.
