Revolt Against the Modern World (via das-grablied)

Images like this were too controversial for an Oakland gallery.
Images that were part of an exhibit of art by Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip. The images were supposed to be shown at the Museum of Children’s Art in Oakland, but the show, entitled A Child’s View from Gaza, was cancelled on September 8.
The Berkeley-based Middle East Children’s Alliance stated in a news release that “there was a concerted effort by pro-Israel organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area to pressure the museum to reverse its decision to display Palestinian children’s art.”
I`m sorry to all of my followers who might be irritated by my recent “face self-shots” spam. Please feel free to un-follow me if you somehow feel offended or irritated by it. The truth is this blog is mainly for me, to express myself and to entertain myself. Usually when i decide to make self-shots i try to overcome something, to prove something to myself, to release something and most importantly to accept something. I have suffered from extremely low self-esteem almost my whole life and at one point people thought i had dysmorphobia, because i had periods of extreme depression and i started to self-harm. As a woman soon to turn 24, i can say those things are in my past. At least for the bigger part. So…i try to teach myself how to accept myself every day. How to like myself a little more every passing day. Because it is very important to feel comfortable in your own skin, in your own body in order for you to be able to function normally and perform your daily duties, so you can enjoy life, so you can work on the things you love and evolve and develop yourself. The body is not a dress. If you don`t like it, you can`t just throw it away, you can`t change it with another, you can`t change your “outfit”. But you can learn how to better it, how to “sew” stuff into it, how to dye it, how to play with it and have fun with it. You must learn to accept it, fully. You won`t get another one. Not in this lifetime, at least. And what i learned is you should never compare yourself with other people. Beauty is subjective, it is never universal. At least not human beauty. Just because you think you suck compared to another human, doesn`t mean somebody else doesn`t find you a million times more beautiful and wonderful. What matter is perspective, what matters is the point of view.
