Climactic Splashes

“…she stopped paying close attention to his words and when at red lights, examined the rain drops spattering on the windshield so intently that she almost stared right through them. Each drop seemed stuck on the glass, until another drop landed on it and they rolled down the window together, ending in a climactic splash.”

Sara: feminism and more.

Gonna keep a tally of messages I get from a) white feminists completely proving my point and b) people who think this comic proves feminism is worthless because I criticized one part of it. (Even despite me writing these words underneath the comic.) Then I’ll add them all up, see which column has more, and then drink myself to sleep either way.
Haha… this is why we can’t have nice things.

THAT IS SUCH A SMART JOKE, WHAT THE HELL

I 100% had to Google this joke and I have 300% more respect for Rugrats.

i don’t get it, can someone explain? [i searched their names and still don’t get it]

Mapplethorpe’s photography was usually very evocative and often contained nude subjects. She having people over who are “very conservative” so she is telling someone (I forget who on the show) to put a Norman Rockwell painting because his work is pretty conventionally accepted as important in american history. The people in his paintings were usually white Americans, often working class, and sometimes soldiers. His work was about pulling the country together, patriotism, american exceptionalism, etc. So more appropriate for a conservative visitor than a picture of a naked guy.

Dude.

Okay, but kids, Mapplethorpe didn’t just do nudes, a good body of his work that was showcased shortly before his death (particularly that which would have been fresh in the minds on the American public around the original run of Rugrats) specifically featured homoerotic and sadomasochistic themes.
So she’s not just saying, “Take down the pics of the nude guy” she’s saying, “Take down the image of the man with the bullwhip in his ass.”

Njideka Akunyili | The Beautiful Ones #1b [alternative take] & Nwantinti [along two details], both 2012.

"It was a layering of multiple interests. Obviously my love for Nigeria where I was born, my love for my life here, my love for my husband.. and just try to figure out a way the two kinda exist in a harmonious way.”

"I think of my work as capturing the very ordinary. Just normal.. everyday stuff. I think there is something beautiful and powerful in the things that happen daily. Intimate situations.. sensual situations.. these [situations] people don’t get to see. I think there is a beauty in that I’m very attracted to.. that I try to get out.”
