DIY Sharpie Lace Vest Tutorial from Alisa Burke. Alisa Burke has a short video (just over 2 minutes) on how she created this lace and (p)leather vest using an oil based sharpie. Of course Alisa Burke is so talented and can make anything look good, but I like this idea.

Excerpts from Vistion Quest Assignment Cards -
#10: Go for a walk without your camera. Go back and make one photo of something you noticed along the way.
#14: Use negative space with “wild and reckless abandon”, making your main subject a very small part of the composition.
#20: Walk an area you would normally drive past. Bring your camera…
When I was 12 boys slid their hand up my thigh and slapped my butt. I smiled and took it because I didn’t know it was okay to say stop. I didn’t know that I could say no. So, when the principal calls telling me my daughter is suspended for punching a boy who wouldn’t stop touching her, I will cook her favorite meals. When she tells me how she cursed at the boy who wouldn’t move his hands off her knee even though she asked him to, I will smile and pull out her favorite movie to watch together. I will celebrate the fact that she accepts her body as her own and knows she has the right to say no. I never want my daughter to think her body belongs to men, because it is her own and my god should she be proud. I will teach her it’s more than okay to say stop, something I wish I had known when I was that age. — don’t be soft, let the world know you exist // 5-26-14 // 9:01AM (via restrictedthoughts)

These are forms of male aggression that only women see. But even when men are afforded a front seat to harassment, they don’t always have the correct vantage point for recognizing the subtlety of its operation. Four years before the murders, I was sitting in a bar in Washington, D.C. with a male friend. Another young woman was alone at the bar when an older man scooted next to her. He was aggressive, wasted, and sitting too close, but she smiled curtly at his ramblings and laughed softly at his jokes as she patiently downed her drink. ‘Why is she humoring him?’ my friend asked me. ‘You would never do that.’ I was too embarrassed to say: ‘Because he looks scary’ and ‘I do it all the time.’
Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize. —
