"My lawyer gives the same speech to everyone who wants to do business with me now. ‘Nicki is not one of those artists who allow her representatives to make decisions for her.’ I’m on conference calls all day with lawyers, accountants, and executives—people of power—and they treat me with respect. Because I command respect. I’m not cocky, but I deserve to know what’s going on. It’s my brand and my life. That’s my advice to women in general: Even if you’re doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want—and don’t allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge. You want everyone to know, Okay, I can’t play games with her. I have to do right by this woman. That’s what it’s all about."

Edward Weston      Photographer Ruth Bernhard       1935

"Every artist, in a sense, is missionary. He tries to convey a message to his fellow man – he communicates the awesome presence of truth and beauty he discovers in the world around him, in its lakes and mountains, trees, rocks and plants, in its living creatures. Down through the centuries poets, sculptors, painters and now photographers, have also been striving to grasp and immortalize the beauty of the human body, both male and female. I see in these forms the elemental relationship to the large forms of nature; a sense of strength like a rock – fluidity like water – space like a mountain range. If I have chosen the female form in particular, it is because beauty has been debased and exploited in our sensual twentieth century. We seem to have a need to turn innocent nature into evil ugliness by the twist of the mind. Woman has been target of much that is sordid and cheap, especially in photography. To raise, to elevate, to endorse with timeless reverence the image of woman, has been my mission – the reason for my work."

You can like wearing sundresses and lace and still be nonbinary.

You can like wearing pantsuits with ties and still be a woman.

You can like wearing floral patterns and still be a man.

Gender identity is valid. Gender expression is subjective. Gender norms are bullshit.

rosalind franklin discovered the double helix in dna but her research was stolen by two men before she could properly share the information and now watson and crick are famous for what she spent years studying

Plus she developed ovarian cancer that was most likely caused by radiation from the HUNDREDS of hours spent using x ray crystallography to ascertain the structure. She literally worked herself to death to be a footnote in most genetics textbooks.

“You think I don’t understand ? The impossible dream. Not of seeming, but of being. Conscious every moment. Vigilant. At the same time, the abyss between what you are for others and for yourself, the feeling of vertigo and the constant desire at least, of being exposed, of being analyzed, dissected, maybe even annihilated. Every word a lie, every gesture a falsehood, every smile a grimace. Suicide ? Oh, no ! That is horrible. You would not do such a thing. But you can stay immobile and in silence. At least that way you don’t lie. You can close within yourself. Alienate yourself ? This way you will not have to act roles, and not put on false gestures. You think. But, do you see ? Reality is in the way, your hiding place is not impenetrable. Life sweeps in through everywhere. And you are obliged to react. No one asks if it is real or unreal, if you are true or false.” — Persona, Ingmar Bergman
