Thought-not Catalog

Hi

So I chanced upon this blog post by Thought Catalog.

Well, we all know that TC has become rather popular and many people take them as gospel truth.

Not me.

Granted that some of their articles are interesting, but recently, as a comment put it, some of these posts appear to have been written by someone (Mark Saunders) who "appears to have farted on his keyboard again".

So in response to this misogynistic post, I give you my comments

1. Female privilege is being able to walk down the street at night without people crossing the street because they’re automatically afraid of you.

1) Oh then doesn't it mean that the males have privilege to walk down the street and not get rape if it's our privilege as women to not get assaulte- oh wait, I think women do get mugged too because we seem so defenseless. Derps.

2. Female privilege is being able to approach someone and ask them out without being labeled “creepy.”

2) Yes, because the gender binaries dictates that we are gentle, unlike guys. And media often dictates guys as borderline creepy.

3. Female privilege is being able to get drunk and have sex without being considered a rapist. Female privilege is being able to engage in the same action as another person but be considered the innocent party by default.

3) Uh... there are women who get convicted of rape and most of the time guys are unwilling to be feminised by calling out upon their rapists because dam, it means that they got raped.

4. Female privilege is being able to turn on the TV and see yourself represented in a positive way. Female privilege is shows like King of Queens and Everybody Loves Raymond where women are portrayed as attractive, competent people while men are shown as ugly, lazy slobs.

4) That btw, borders on sexualisation. And even guys are getting that, what with bulked up guys. Andddd girls who are portrayed as slobs don't actually give people good vibes too ya? Come on, it's human to frown upon sloppiness, isn't it?

5. Female privilege is the idea that women and children should be the first rescued from any sort of emergency situation. Female privilege is saving yourself before you save others and not being viewed as a monster.

5) x'D OMG HAHA Funny you should say that because "children and women first" were a mark of being a gentlemen. Now if only we removed all gender binaries together and nurture future generations to think of each other as human rather than by their gender roles, that would be great.

6. Female privilege is being able to decide not to have a child.

6) I bet you're a republican that believes in "legal rape"

7. Female privilege is not having to support a child financially for 18 years when you didn’t want to have it in the first place.

7) That's why they came up with pills for guys or a CONDOM if the pills were not to your liking what with all the side effects.

8. Female privilege is never being told to “take it like a man” or “man up.”

8) YA. Only because men are supposed to act like men and women are suppose to "behave more lady like" What are you smoking

9. Female privilege is knowing that people would take it as a gravely serious issue if someone raped you. Female privilege is being able to laugh at a “prison rape” joke.

9) Sorry, this is truth and please refer to the incident of Daniel Smith and Nicole, the Marine who supposedly raped this Philippina and served a stint in prison before this Philippina say, oh, I can't remember, he didn't rape me I think.

10. Female privilege is being able to divorce your spouse when your marriage is no longer working because you know you will most likely be granted custody of your children.

10) Uh. Not always but usually so because again, *blames is on le binary* women are supposedly the caretakers.

11. Female privilege is being able to call the police in a domestic dispute knowing they will take your side. Female privilege is not having your gender work against where police are involved.

11) Ya and in rape cases some women get slut shamed. Domestic violence can be pretty clear cut with the physical injuries no?

12. Female privilege is being able to be caring or empathetic without people being surprised.

12) Refer to 8.

13. Female privilege is not having to take your career seriously because you can depend on marrying someone who makes more money than you do. Female privilege is being able to be a “stay at home mom” and not seem like a loser.

13) Uh. Because you guys want us in the private, domestic sphere and make sandwiched for you and now it's also our fault. Ok

14. Female privilege is being able to cry your way out of a speeding ticket.

14) Whut. Ok, if the police does that, he or she is in just

15. Female privilege is being favored by teachers in elementary, middle and high school. Female privilege is graduating high school more often, being accepted to more colleges, and generally being encouraged and supported along the way.

15) Not for me. You must be talking about girls that are prim, proper, polite, pretty and perfect models of what a woman should be.

16. Female privilege being able to have an opinion without someone tell you you’re just “a butthurt fedora-wearing neckbeard who can’t get any.”

16) Women are not supposed to be sexually active and if we were we would be labelled sluts. Our worth isn't tagged to the number of sexual partners or favours we get. How would you like it if I asked you to man up now?

17. Female privilege is being able to talk about sexism without appearing self-serving.

17) Eh. There are male feminists.

18. Female privilege is arrogantly believing that sexism only applies to women.

18) EHHH Sums up why feminist exists in bringing down both male and female binaries.

Where to buy Kutsuwa Eraser and Clay Kits?

Hi

A post that was bound to happen!

Many people often ask where can they buy Kutsuwa Eraser Kits. So here's a handy dandy guide for you!

I live in Singapore and I buy all my Kutsuwa Eraser products from Love Melancholy. I have previously featured  her shop in my Where to buy Popin' Cookin? post.

She sells each kit online for $12.90.

Kutsuwa Eraser kits have undergone a revamp! The whole new look isn't all. The eraser clay inside are scented eraser clay, allowing you to create your own sweet smelling erasers.

Singapore have another shop selling them. Originally the owners of Candy Play, also featured in my Where to buy Popin' Cookin? post, they have branched out to selling Kutsuwa Eraser kits. They focus on retail in shops like Toy Out Post, Hako or Box Boss. Eraserplay retails at the same shops where they sell Poping Cookin, each at $17.90.

Check them out.

Commissioned!

Hi! 

I recently completed a commission from my friend. It was my very first commission and I very much enjoyed the process.

Firstly, my customer and I had to see how small the berries would go.

This allowed us to gauge how big/small the diameter of the cake should be

Next, I used Hearty Red with red paint and some Grace clay to make the red velvet cake layers.
The cream was White Diaso clay with water.


I should have waited for the cake layers to dry before layering the cream as planned, but I got too excited and went ahead.


This made the entire cake dry a lot slower as the volume was very larger. I wanted to make sure that the core of the cake is completely dry before sealing it. 



Waited for the cake to dry while making the berries that would go on top of the cake.

When the cake's surface was left to dry for a day, it was sturdy enough for me to cut out a slice. After which,  left the cake and slice to dry again.

The whipped cream was piped with Epoch Whipple Cream. It's easy to pipe and dries nice and hard.

This is the final product~


 And my very satisfied customer. ヽ(*・ω・)ノ


The entire commission took maybe 3 weeks. Mostly due to drying time.

Contact me via my Facebook Page @ Rainbow Sashimi if you are interested in getting a commissioned piece from me. Describe your idea with desired measurements and I will quote you a reasonable price based on cost of material and workmanship fee.

Thank you~
