    "1832 Doll" from the Gratitude Train

    Marcelle Dormoy


    Marcelle Dormoy’s creation for the Gratitude Train was designed after a dress by Mlle. Palmyre, whose salon served the ruling class, including Queen Marie-Amélie and Empress Eugénie. The quality of construction is particularly fine and evident in the pantaloons of this doll.

    I’m glad that Ferguson is getting attention, seriously I am, but I haven’t seen ONE post about what is happening over seas. Not even one post about the pictures above. Children are being beheaded and dragged into the streets where they are then shot because their families are Christian. Women are being raped and murdered. Men are being murdered. PEOPLE are dying. It’s a Christian Holocaust. And I haven’t seen anything on Tumblr.

    Why aren’t any of you furious about this?! Where’s the “social justice?” ISIS is murdering people who don’t convert to Islam (yes, I know they’re extremists and not all Muslims are like that. Save yourself the rant) but I really want to know why this hasn’t been given the attention it deserves.

    Seriously, guys. This is really scary, and we need to raise attention for these people. They so desperately need our prayers and support.

    This happening to christian KURDS and yezidis

    There has also been over 100 girls under the age of 15 that have been raped by ISIS soldiers and have been forced into committing suicide. The Kurdish Christians and Yezedis that are on the run are begging for a quick death. The ISIS leader has threatened to ‘drown our enemies in their own blood’ which includes non-muslim Kurds, Americans and other countries that have offered to help stop this genocide. What the Kurds are going through is completely tragic, and they’ve already been through so much. So many Kurdish peshmerga have been slaughtered, this is going to turn out to be a total massacre….

    The Kurdish people are so much more than a Christian minority.

    They are what the Middle East should be.

    The Kurds are a multiethnic (mostly Turkish European), fairly monolithic culture divided between Muslims and Christians.  They are and historically have been uninvolved with the Sunni-Shia conflict.  Until the arrival of ISIS and even under the oppression and slaughter of Saddam Hussein, Kurdistan was a largely peaceful, prosperous region where the rights of women were respected and foreigners were welcome.

    ISIS is an enemy to peace itself and must be destroyed.

    quick concepts for some ideas of spirits i had. from left to right:

    1. the keeper: guardian of cemeteries - makes sure graves remain clean and never without flowers.
    2. crywolf: once thought to be a trickster spirit that led travelers to their doom, this spirit’s actual intent is to help travelers discover unmarked graves of murder victims.
    3. the cacophony: will appear to some individuals - serves the same purpose as a banshee.
    4. the rat king: a spirit of vengeance, unleashed upon those who hurt others.
    5. the lure: an otherworldly being that feeds on lost souls - will lure them close and devour them whole.
    6. the guardian: a watchful sloth spirit that comforts the spirit of dead children, allowing them to paint his fur.

  10. Fashion is one of the very few forms of expression in which women have more freedom than men. And I don’t think it’s an accident that it’s typically seen as shallow, trivial, and vain. It is the height of irony that women are valued for our looks, encouraged to make ourselves beautiful and ornamental… and are then derided as shallow and vain for doing so. And it’s a subtle but definite form of sexism to take one of the few forms of expression where women have more freedom, and treat it as a form of expression that’s inherently superficial and trivial. Like it or not, fashion and style are primarily a women’s art form. And I think it gets treated as trivial because women get treated as trivial. What’s more, there’s an interestingly sexist assumption that often gets made about female fashion — namely, that it’s primarily intended to get male attention and male approval.
