James C. LewisIcons Of The Bible

The series, which will be fully released in October, features 70 models who identify as either Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African, Middle Eastern, Black American and West Indian.

"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."

"I wish to exhibit a splash of color onto the biblical pages of history with my creative embellishments. By doing so I hope to open the minds and eyes of the ignorant and create open conversations of how we can learn to see the world through colorful lenses. After all, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is intended for everyone."

For those who’d like to see the entire collection, “Icons Of The Bible” will on display from November 2014 to February 2015 in Atlanta, GA.

  • Me: This older generation pisses me off so much
  • Therapist: Why?
  • Me: Because when I was growing up, we were forcefed the idea that if we didn't want to be 'flipping burgers at McDonalds,' then we'd better go to college.
  • Therapist: And?
  • Me: And now we've all gone to college, have degrees, can't get a damn job, and the same people that told us to go to college call us entitled assholes because we refuse to flip burgers
  • Therapist: Touche

I had to post this on tumblr, feminism should stand for equality not superiority

why are you blaming feminism for things that feminism is not responsible for? Feminists dont control the justice system, the draft, nor circumcision. However, I can show you sources of feminists fighting against these injustices.

"Spazz"

casketscratcher:

So this is a general PSA to my followers and I realise that many of you will think I’m being overly PC or sensitive, but outside of the US, “spazz” is a horrifically ableist word (worse than “r*****”). It comes from the word “spastic” which refers to one of the symptoms of cerebal palsy. People with cerebal palsy were referred to as “spastics” and the word became a horrible slang way to compare a person’s movements or appearance with someone with cerebal palsy. It also became a catch-all for all disabled people, including those with learning disorders and mental illnesses.

It’s not cute and it’s not harmless.

So next time you’re clapping your hands and squawking about “like, omg, I’m such a spazz lolz!!!” maybe engage some grey matter and some empathy and, y’know, cut that shit out.

Also if you use it in Europe (particularly Scotland) you will have your arse handed to you for being a thoughtless dickface, just a heads-up.

Feminists stating "Not all feminists are like that" and “that’s not what true feminism is” sounds the exact same as any religious fanatic saying "That’s not what true Christianity/Islam is!"

Feminists…

Plus: trying to criticize a perfectly valid religion and calling it a brainwashed cult is— sorry to break the news— not true. And if that’s a marginalized religion? One that is constantly judged, assumed to be a terrorist one, and disrespected? Well, we are gonna get pretty pissed. Guess what buddy, hate breeds hate. You gave, we’re giving back. (On a side note: God blessss
