Ask   Social Justice Blogging: A bit of it is funny, some of it is sad, but almost all of it will drive you really fucking mad.

> Not everything I post is a direct representation of my views. I post things I find interesting, or a conversation piece, or sometimes from a different viewpoint than I'm used to. Many issues are more complex than soundbites, and as always, I appreciate feedback on posts, and hearing different perspectives.
> Yes, this blog has a feminist slant; any posts with massive generalisations, like "men" or "women" should be taken with a grain of salt. Gender does not determine existence. Same for race, sexual identity, and any other categorisation of diverse human beings.
> Watch out for: Sarcasm, irony, and satire. Strong language. Mature subject matter, which can cause discomfort for some individuals. Pornographic content will not be shown.

If you see content that is misattributed, simply drop me a note in my ask and I will definitely fix it! I do not claim creation rights for anything on my blog unless otherwise stated.

Canadian artist JJ Levine’s new photo series Alone Time looks at how gender is constructed. Each photo features only one model, performing as two genders.

“By doubling a single body within one frame, I celebrate the human capacity for gender fluidity and call into question the idea of authenticity of gender… Although this specific series is digitally collaged, it is important to note that no gender traits are altered or digitally manipulated — I make my models convincingly ‘pass’ as both male and female using makeup, costume, and gesture and no other means, thus defying the gender binary imperative.”
