Anonymous said: Hey so, I don't want to be annoying but I have a kind of important question. Is your feminism trans inclusionary?

marinashutup:

Short answer: yes.

Long answer: it’s something I’m working on. I am probably the least read and educated on trans issues and class issues, simply because of what is taught in the curriculum at the schools I’ve gone to and also probably due to cissexism in popular feminism. I’m trying very hard to fix that though. But I do fuck up and misspeak and feel awful and ignorant and offensive when I do. I hate asking for patience in not knowing everything yet, because trans people have been dealing with this shit for years and being able to be unaware of certain trans issues is cis privilege and I don’t blame them for being frustrated, but this is where I’m at right now. With that in mind, if anyone can recommend more trans bloggers/vloggers/twitter accounts, as well as trans literature that would be very much appreciated.

I feel this.

Anatomical Quilling: Paper Cross Sections of the Body by Lisa Nilsson

Artistic renderings of the internal body, from anatomy books to fine art, are often poorly communicated versions of real-life. These paper creations by Lisa Nilsson, however, create the perfect balance of aesthetically pleasing detail and scientific accuracy… even though they’re completely made with strips of paper. Created using the paper-crafting technique of quilling, originally used by Renaissance monks and nuns to make artistic use of the worn out gilded edges of Bibles, Nilsson has curled and twirled some remarkably detailed and tiny pieces. Why does paper make these pieces so enjoyably perfect?

“I find quilling exquisitely satisfying for rendering the densely squished and lovely internal landscape of the human body in cross section.”

“Densely squished” is a very accurate term, as her pieces are often only a few inches across. The close-up images shown here do a good job showing the impressive level of attention she pays to each internal shape, appearing much larger than the real-life pieces. Viewed from a distance, the pieces loose their strictly paper based form and look nearly photographed or drawn. You can see more of Nilsson’s creations, including paintings with just as much attention to detail, at lisanilssonart.com.

"For many, the pages of the dissertation are stained with blood, sweat and tears. And coffee. And more tears."

Well at least Yale has a sense of humor about its dissertation process.
