is a small community owned & run by some regular people. Not a company. We are not out to recruit you for data mining purposes, there is no venture capital exit strategy, no one is asking about profit margins or even making this a full time job. There are no ads. Posts here are not a commodity to be sold. We are just a fun group of people who like chatting about creativity, nerdy things, feminism, and sometimes pants. This site started over a decade ago and hasn't even changed colors. It is a safe, inclusive place to share opinions, rant, celebrate, cuss or just take stupid quizzes. We were around before every corporate social media site had to "connect" you and we'll be around when they're all gone.

Female Artists and the nude:

Born in Hammersmith, England in 1859, Henrietta Rae painted subjects dealing with classic legends, many of these nudes, but as far as I know only painted one in which a nude male was depicted. This is “Zephyrus Wooing Flora” (c. 1888).

Quiz: What kind of engineer should you be?

Engineering is one of the coolest jobs in the world, but there are so many disciplines it can be a little daunting to choose one for yourself! I wasn't happy with the existing quizzes, they were mostly way too direct (do you like bridges or wires? uh...) or way too career-spammy, and they were all way too serious. So with that in mind I took some personality traits and kinda did my best attempt at mapping them to engineering fields. It's not scientific or accurate because it really doesn't matter, engineers do so many things and move around so much there's no way to predict what path you'll end up on... so relax! This point of this test is to combine the fun of a personality quiz with the usefulness of a career test... hey look at that, fun AND useful? It's getting engineer-y already!

Women in history and an examination of gender norms:

This post will deal with three female artists, with the first not being as well known as the next two. She is Virginia Sterrett who was born in 1900 in Chicago. While a teenager she received a scholarship to the Art Institute of Chicago and then obtained employment illustrating advertisements. At the age of 19 she was paid a total of $750 for illustrating a book of “Old French Fairy Tales” by Sophie Comptesse de Segur. Two years later she illustrated Nathaniel Hawthorne’s book of “Tanglewood Tales.” The third book that Virginia illustrated was “Arabian Nights.” Here is a 3 minute long video with music of Virginia Sterrett’s illustrations along with her portrait shown near the beginning: This video is by Christiane Santiago.

Female Singers:

Here are the Spice Girls with their video “Wannabe” (4 minutes, 1996): If you don’t remember the members they were Victoria Beckham (Posh), Emma Bunton (Baby), Melanie Brown (Scary), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty) and Geri Halliwell (Ginger). They disbanded, but four of them may be getting back together for a tour. I like the music and the video, which to me shows the togetherness of a group of female friends. I also like the older women in black at about 2 minutes and 50 seconds. While it is made to look like it is shot in one take it really took three takes with the two splices. By the by there was a 2002 movie called the “Russian Ark” which is reportedly shot in one 99 minute long take.
