Female Tattoo Artist of the 1910’s
Introducing the first known female tattoo artist in America.
Maud Wagner was the first known female tattoo artist in the United States. Little is known about this awesome vintage lady, however according to The New Yorker, Maud traded a date with her husband-to-be Gus Wagner in 1907 for tattoo lessons. Now that’s impressive!

only the “first” American female tattoo artist because this white woman had citizenship in the early 20th century, whereas the women indigenous to the land now claimed by the US (who have been tattooing for thousands of years) didn’t become “American” until they got their citizenship in 1924
like Maud Wagner is only radical in a world where indigenous women are erased, forgotten, or otherwise thought of as less than human, and radical feminism is defined as “white women demanding their fair share in an appropriated form of body modification made popular via colonial genocide”

AS WE ALL KNOW, WE WOMEN CANNOT UNDERSTAND COMPLICATED THINGS LIKE DICE

ONLY MANLY MEN KNOW WHAT DICE ARE

Bwahahaha! “Slightly mathematical candies”, love it!

Plot-twist of the century was when neck-beard nerds discovered they were just as sexist and terrible as the alpha-douches that picked on them in high school were

The Dreaded V-day

Let’s be real. Valentines day SUCKS.

And it only sucks because we’re taught to believe some fucked up shit (about love, about relationships, about preference).

Growing up in a Christian community and in a Christian household, I used to pray to God to give me the ‘perfect Christian boy.’ And every year, He wouldn’t give him to me. V-day was just another shitty reminder that I was doomed to be “perpetually single”.

Eventually though, maybe out of survival, I started making V-day a focus on loving me. First with friends, and then by myself, I made it tradition to give myself one present, one dinner, one bottle of good ass wine (i.e. whatever I can afford) and one desert (red velvet cake duh!). And that shit was AWESOME.

This year, I’m a little queerer, and a LOT poorer, but I feel pretty lucky to be at a place where February 14th is just another day. Despite my plans, I’d still be so down to drink my boxed wine and watch Netflix all night.

I’m not going to say folks should just ‘get over it’, ‘valentines day is a made-up holiday created by Hallmark bleeeehhhh’ but that if you’re struggling today, I feel you homie, and I get that.

My queer homies, my trans* homies, my WoC homies, and all my other single ass homies- I say FUCK IT. Let’s drink some Franzia and watch Buffy till our fucking eyes bleed.

HAPPY FUCKING VALENTINES DAY!!

loooooooooove Tabitha

it is so easy to find het feminists falling all over themselves to affirm the importance of female friendship over romance, never ever acknowledging that there could be such a thing as a romantic relationship between women.

i used to feel really fondly…

MI CATS 3 Found Guilty by Jury » Michigan Coalition Against Tar Sands →

alchemistscloset:

The trial of peaceful activists from Michigan Coalition Against Tar Sands (MI CATS) ended today with the jury finding Vicci Hamlin, Lisa Leggio, and Barb Carter guilty of both charges brought against them:  trespassing and resisting and obstructing an officer. Supporters are deeply saddened that after deliberation for over 10 hours the verdict returned as guilty of all counts. The jury was split most of this time, returning to the courtroom several times for clarification. Sentencing was scheduled for March 5th and the defendants’ bail was revoked and immediately taken into custody.

On January 15th when a denied motion to quash was heard by Judge Collette, he told the MI CATS that they would not be allowed to argue that their actions were “environmentally necessary”. Collette said, “If there is somebody leaking oil on a piece of property and you race out in the yard, and you go in and you stop it, and they charge you with trespassing, I’d throw that case out in a heartbeat. That’s what I think of as ‘Environmental Necessity.” The judge obviously does not understand the severity of the looming climate crisis and that unjust laws allow for the destruction of communities and public health so corporations like Enbridge can maximize their profit. Moreover, the outcome of the case was especially discerning since Judge Collette previously stated that he wanted to make an example out of the three protesters.

This action in which Lisa, Barb, and Vicci were a part of, was not only aimed at stopping the expansion of  Enbridge tar sands pipelines before the next disaster, it was also to stand in solidarity with First Nations land being turned into a sacrifice zones to mine tar sands. They used their positions of relative privilege to support communities currently being poisoned in Detroit and others because of extraction industries that put profit before people. Their actions were nothing less than necessary.

Vicci Hamlin, who became a great grandmother Monday, expressed how for her and Lisa as parents, this is a necessity, stating “ The threat that tar sands extraction poses to my children, grandchildren and now great grandchild requires me to act”.  Lisa Leggio,  will be a grandmother next week  said, “ I came to Michigan from New York, and fell in love with nature and the water. Seeing up-close the devastation that the 2010 tar sands spill caused to  the Kalamazoo river and surrounding community, I think about my daughter and her unborn child. What are we leaving them? I did this for them, and we did this for everyone’s children”

Please visit MichiganCats.org for continuous updates.

Check them out and support these folks. I don’t want this story to go by unnoticed. (Also, fuck that judge and his bullshit)
