Countless eons ago, an intelligent race of super-machines roamed the universe, searching for the next step in the development of sentient life. Orbiting a small yellow star, they found a world suitable for biological life, and began exploring. Finding there a mighty breed of savage lizards, the machines began to put their mettle to the test against these ferocious creatures. The war was on. After years of fighting, the carbon based creatures proved to be a match for the silicon based machines in combat prowess, destroying one for every of their kind that was slain. The silicon intellects began to wonder. What if neither the sheer strength of the reptilian breed, nor the perfect intellect of the machine-mind was enough to insure the survival of life. What if a middle ground should be reached. The machines began to work on what was to be the next step in assisted evolution, while the phyrric war between metal and flesh raged on. At the end of the conflict, just as the last dinosaur and the last robot fought to a horrific end, something wonderful happened. Out of the empty labs of the machines walked the children of a new race altogether: Man.
Ok, so I've been putting many hours into this piece, working on it on and off for quite some time. Anyway, I thought the old version had too good a concept simply to explain in a sketch, so I give you the new one. Lots of new brushes were created for this piece, mostly for foliage and the rocks. I do hope you like it.
Phew. Too much work. Now I'm going to go play games
BTW I know it's a silly story. It's supposed to be.
I wanted to update this a while ago. The photo is crowded, I took it in a hurry.
These are the Pkmn I have, in build order: - Turtwig, Espeon and Vaporeon: regular paper. Awful. - Gallade (1st one on thick paper - its head tilts ^^), Staryu, Lugia (I didn't know scrap paper then...), Mudkip, Chikorita, Torterra, Pichu, Roselia, Gardevoir: 140gsm paper - Scizor, Nidoking, Bayleef (waiting a little to do Paperpokés photo), Quilava, Reshiram, Raichu (a bet, and a bday present. Can't believe I built it in 1.5 day!!): 120gsm
Mankey is almost ready, but I forgot to include it ^^. A few more coming!
I got this idea for this stamp after reading this comic
I'm going to put a content warning on one of these links. The word "not" directs you to a TERF website and it's transphobic, especially towards transgender females, so be advise when you surf through these links.
We get it, feminism is for equality. Well, its actual definition is sort of complicated because one definition is "make social, economic, political etc. rights equal for women as they are for men" or "the idea that men and women should be equal."
That seems like a nice thing, right? Well, the third wave movement will change your mind.
Before you tell me "they're not a true feminist" or "not all feminists are like this", let me tell you something:
1. You are part of the problem because you're letting these psychopaths gain a voice by not doing anything about it. Pretty much you're letting them represent the movement. If you don't want that, call them out on their bullshit instead.
2. That's a "No True Scotsman" fallacy you used. You have to face the fact that they labeled themselves as "feminist". You can't just say "no, they are not feminist" because you are not them.
3. Remember when feminists joked about "#notallmen" after the UCSB shooting? They're quick on their feet to make fun of any penis-holders when they say that the shooter doesn't represent the entire male population. However, when someone points a flaw in the third wave movement, they're resort to the "not all feminists are like this/that" argument. We get that feminists are not all like this, but consider this: male is a gender in which you can't get yourself out of while feminism is a movement in which you can get yourself out of. It's one way or the other, people!
From what I've seen lately, it seems like the third wave feminist movement is not living up to the original definition of feminism.
Instead of focusing on the "manspreading" (is that even an issue?), why not shift our focus to places where misogyny is more rampant and severe? I get that first world countries are not perfect either, but living in a country that is secular, democratic, and developed can make change easier.
Btw this is coming from a feminist (or egalitarian/humanist/whatever/idk but I believe in gender equality and I may drop the "feminist" label soon for personal reasons) who values the first and second waves.
And if you fave this stamp, then you hate women, including me who made this stamp! /s
