Meat –(NSFW) The impressive works of russian artist Dimitri Tsykalov.

Dimitri Tsykalov isn’t afraid to push the boundaries, as this series of photos attests. Draping nude figures in meat shaped like weapons of war, he creates an aggressive, barbaric atmosphere. The blood lust of these soldiers is reflected by the dripping meat that’s hanging off of them like armor.

Spread this like wildfire.

Six notes?

Maybe I should have said to spread this like a photoset of Lea Michele writhing against a motel door.

Come on, friends. You all talk about wanting better representation for women, better role models for young girls. This is exactly someone using their high profile status to do something about that very issue.

Why Did Geena Davis Create the Institute and See Jane?

While watching children’s entertainment with her young daughter, Geena Davis was astounded by the dearth of female characters. Fueled to take action, she commissioned the largest research project on gender in film and television ever undertaken, conducted by Dr. Stacy Smith at the USC Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism. The research confirmed the disparity she observed: in family films, there is only one female character for every three male characters. In group scenes, only 17% of the characters are female. The repetitive viewing patterns of children ensure that these negative stereotypes are ingrained and imprinted over and over.

What Type of Work Does the Institute Do?

The Institute is the only research-based organization working within the media and entertainment industry to engage, educate, and influence the need for gender balance, reducing stereotyping and creating a wide variety of female characters for entertainment targeting children 11 and under. 

Reblogging literally takes the press of a button.

Actually relevant to the stuff I want to study and do.

nothing but big time respect for this woman!
