nimbi always lays on my drawing table when i am in my studio. she is an artist cat. she is making art in her little cat dreams.

today i woke up and decided i am fed up. fed up with porn.
i had this interesting conversation lastnight with a friend about feminism and what it meant to be a pro porn feminist. while having this conversation i imagine beautiful breasts, happy women and people doing things they wanted to do. but then this morning i decided to do a little research. i am prepping for my show and some of my video deals with notions of porn and i thought, i need a refresher course. so there i am watching some porn images and video flash by, skimming it like you would any academic book and i suddenly got so angry. super angry. and not just because some girl is posing as a teen with wiener juice all over her face and a smile, but because who she is taking it from is YUCK looking dude.
i mean, i have noticed before, but today it really dawned on me, we need better looking men in porn. if i am going to continue to say i am pro porn, well something has gotta change. these men are gross, old, out of shape, they make the worst expressions ever and are just plain unattractive.
just take a good quick look at mr ron jeremy. he is our most famous male porn star. that alone says how screwed up the industry is when it comes to satifying our taste in men.
and then our other option is all that soft born fabio bullshit?!
where are the suicide boys for straight women? where are the men who don't look like a creepy uncle? does anyone else want to start casting for a cute man porn with me?

i have been working on getting ready for my show like a mad woman. and anytime i am not working on it i get all stressed. however, i was researching old art favorites and i came across some images of kate pratt's work. love her work. i remember when i first saw her work when i was at otis i was all blown away. my crush remains.

i am not sure how i feel about these. no, i like them. but why is it that they kinda make me a little nervous. it is so silly. for some reason the palm in the office makes me the least freaked out. the orchid on the other hand is the most nerve racking.

this book is wonderful. i know i know, i just can't get enough of feminism, but this book is very refreshing, or rather FRESH. it is written in the most direct way. jessica valenti says it like it is. and i love her for it.
p.s. my boyfriend gifted it to me. the man knows his little live in feminist very well.
