I honestly can’t believe this right now. I was complaining to my bf about some Kotex tampons I had used, going on a bit of a rant about how bad they were, and on a whim I decided to go to the website and leave a review so other people who might get them would know better.
I’ve never written a tampon review in my life (it’s not something I ever anticipated doing) so I had a little fun getting very passionate about my thoughts, and then went to submit…. Only to receive the words: ‘Your review text contains inappropriate language.’ I was confused at first, I mean I was pretty emphatic, but I didn’t cuss at all… and then I realized: I had typed the word ‘vagina.’ 

You can’t type the word ‘vagina’ on a TAMPON review because it’s considered inappropriate.

KOTEX, a company that makes OVER A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR primarily selling products to people with vaginas, thinks that someone typing the word “VAGINA” in a review of a product that goes IN THEIR VAGINA is being inappropriate and needs to be censored.

I retyped “v*gina” with an asterisk like it was a swear word, submitted and it went to preview mode with no problem. But I’m still kind of in shock… Honestly, what is wrong with Kotex that they think they need to protect tampon users from the word ‘vagina’?

If you didn’t think our society’s fear of the vagina was absurd, here you go. It’s cartoonish.

Sorry for the lack of updates!! I’ve just been so busy getting a bearing on things and haven’t had the time to fully stock up my fridge to make pretty food to share with you guys :)
Today I made Guilin Chili Chicken stir fry! What you will need:
Soy sauce
Guilin chili sauce (I finally found an asian market here in Barcelona and it has been a life saver!!!!)
Protein of choice
Vegetables of choice
Peanuts
1 clove garlic
Rice!!
This was sooo simple you guys, honestly. The veggies I chose to use were carrot, tomato, green beans, peas, red bell pepper, green bell pepper, broccoli, and onion. For protein I used chicken but of course anything can be used! Pork, beef, tofu, shrimp, you name it.
First I cooked the chicken in a pan, seasoning with salt. Afterwards I removed the chicken and in the same pan I added one clove of minced garlic and peanuts. Then I added and cooked down all the vegetables. When they were almost done I added about half a tablespoon of soy sauce and one table spoon of guilin chili sauce. Then I added chicken, a quarter cup of water, stirred everything together to mix, and covered with a lid for about 3-5 minutes to let things thicken up. Afterwards I served it with some basmati rice but you can use quinoa, brown rice, etc. :-) It was enough food to last me two meals!

Thinking back on my life, I have so much to be thankful for. I just want to take time out to thank everyone who have supported my art career and my tattoo career over the years. I read every comment I get and I try my very best to reply back to everyone because I remember being a young artist writing all my favorite artists and only a FEW would even reply back.. I remember days when me @tukicarter @painisher barely had food to eat but we stuck together and made sure the WHOLE crew would eat.. Those memories fuel me to this day.. And reading your comments and emails inspire me to work even harder…I’m not always the most social.. I’m not always the most forgiven.. Sometimes I want to be left alone to paint and create art.. But I LOVE all of you guys and I’m thankful… VERY thankful… You guys have changed my life by your positive feedback and by purchasing my work and supporting @cityofink … I will always remain humble and stay grassroots with the people.. No matter how much money I make it how far I go I will always remain a servant to the people.. An Artist of the People.. Thank you from #miyabailey

Meet Your Photographer: Logor

I met Logor here in Lagos and was blown away by his black and white photography. Good to have him as a contributor!

"To see beauty in its most ordinary form is the mystery I strive to capture. Often I do this via black and white photography which I think is a very honest form because it exposes the stark honesty of any image or subject without the distraction of color which is often the most recognizable form of beauty." - Logor

The most dangerous thing society teaches boys and men, especially white boys and men, is that their emotions are objective logic and reason and that anyone who disagrees is being irrational.
