Miss Gendered award 2015

Art for grabs 21st March 2015
Misgendering a transwoman or at least to me is a violence, not physically but psychologically very, very can be very damaging. It can trigger severe depression and suicidal thoughts and tendencies.

I had this idea playing around the beauty pageant or something familiar in transwomen world or at least where i come from and playing with the word or pun and also trying to capture what if i do the same to cisgender guys but obviously it doesn't deliver the same effectto them.
It was just a fun side project anyways.

Credit to Shanti and Vee for helping me making the sash.

Adele Blanc-Sec (song)


Elle est au-dessus des lois, terre-à-terre Elle trouve un peu trop étroit, l'univers Aurait du sang-froid en Enfer Il me sort son cinéma, j'exagère Il est dans tous ses états, à bout de nerfs Elle ne me voit pas, j'désespère Je lis sur son doux visage un rêve Son cœur se rit des naufrages et se relève Un jour enfin son voyage s'achève Et moi j'porterais bien ses bagages Elle côtoie de drôles d'oiseaux sanguinaires Fait valser les anges gardiens, les cerbères Vraiment quel foutu caractère De New-York à Calcutta, rien à faire Je s'rais toujours planté là dans sa sphère Au moindre faux pas j'obtempère Je lis sur son doux visage un rêve Son cœur se rit des naufrages et se relève Un jour enfin son voyage s'achève Et moi j'porterais bien ses bagages Des chapeaux de marquises Mes bibelots, mes valises Même une baignoire et un arrosoir Tous mes grimoires, mon samovar Mademoiselle Adèle ? Oui ? J'vous ai pris une passoire Pourquoi ? C'est à tout hasard parce que on sait jamais… Oh quel bazar ! Enfin elle est là si vous en avez besoin, elle est là… Très bien, merci ! Au revoir ! Elle n'a pas besoin de moi, comment faire ? Pour qu'elle pense à un peu à moi, j'veux lui plaire C'est pas c'que tu crois, au contraire Je lis sur son doux visage un rêve Son cœur se rit des naufrages et se relève Un jour enfin son voyage s'achève Et moi j'attends sur le rivage

Planetes

just finished watching 'Planetese' anime series, this one hands down, the best ones....eventho it was broadcasted 2003 - 2004
after scouring the online what's good to watch, i noticed that i watch this series before but halfway and i took 3 days to finish the whole series...it was really good. I guess there are no fillers at all, every episode is good and tell each of the character backstory and also the plot of the whole series. Its been awhile i watch anime series this good since....Cowboy Bebop.......that was really long time ago...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planetes
Summary:
In the year 2075, mankind has reached a point where journeying between Earth, the moon and the space stations is part of daily life. However, the progression of technology in space has also resulted in the problem of the space debris, which can cause excessive and even catastrophic damage to spacecrafts and equipment. This is the story of Technora's Debris Collecting section, its EVA worker, Hachirota "Hachimaki" Hoshino, and the newcomer to the group, Ai Tanabe.
