    Recep Alçamli is a chemical engineering student in Turkey who uses his free time to carve awesomely tiny and exquisitely detailed sculptures on the graphite tips of pencils. Alçamli’s impressive skill places him in the excellent company of artists such as Dalton Ghetti, cerkahegyzo, Pete Goldlust and Diem Chau (all previously featured here).

    Head over to Recep Alçamli’s Facebook page to check out more of his amazing pencil sculptures.

    The piece’s unbalanced composition combined with its flowing, symmetrical lines evoke something alien: strange and vast.

    Depending upon the angle of the light, the saturation of the color deepens as it moves along the sculpture.

    The huge amount of pressure on young girls to let their boyfriends get away with everything and not to stand up for themselves, lest they stop being a ‘chill girlfriend’ and instead become a horrible, controlling harpy is such bullshit.

    Stop teaching young girls that demanding to be treated with respect and courtesy makes them shrill, over-emotional, or unworthy of listening to.

    "At Rio Americano High School in Sacramento CA, a student named Dejza, was violently assaulted by a vice principal, Matt Collier, for attempting to take back a piece of art with a political message that the administration didn’t like. She was put in a chokehold and slammed against the desk. When she tried to resist this unlawful abuse of authority, she was slammed and held onto the ground. Matt Collier laid on top of her, crushing her with his weight. Dejza could not breathe, and begged Collier to get off of her. Luckily, another faculty member came in and ended the situation. Dejza went to see a doctor for severe whiplash, and yesterday was her first day of physical therapy. Despite this being blatantly wrong and illegal, the administration has put her on suspension for resisting, and Collier was not disciplined. On the fifth day of her suspension, she will attend a meeting held by bias members of the administration to determine if she will be expelled.

    They have tried to silence anyone who speaks out on social media, but today we have gathered in person for a silent sit-in protest.

    Dejza has been wronged, and brutalized, and now she is receiving punishment. They’ve tried to silence her. They’ve tried to silence us.” -Grant Wright 

    One of my friends Grant posted this on facebook and even though im not in Sacramento I want to help. This girl has been mistreated by a full grown man who may never be punished. I want to help spread awareness. So please, spread this around. Let people know that this is NOT okay. The more support we have, the better. 

    i’m so proud to have been a part of this today but you guys please please please please reblog/spread this around any way you possibly can it’s so important and her story needs to be heard by people outside of our city because what this man did is so so so incredibly far from okay

    arrest Matt Collier. protect and redeem Dejza.

    Jesus. Much love and solidarity I hope you receive justice!!!

    WTF I LIETERALLY THOUGHT IT WAS ABOUT DOGS UNTIL NOW I AM 20 YEARS OLD

    of course it was, why would he actually sing about real dogs and why they got out

    No it isn’t. It’s actually talking about the men who predate upon women in clubs, calling them dogs, not ‘ugly women’. Just look at the lyrics:

    And tell the fellas stop the name callin
    Yepee ah yo
    Then them girls respond to the call
    I hear a woman shout out
    Who let the dogs out
    Woof, woof, woof, woof, woof

    Or if that isn’t clear enough for you that it’s women quite clearly calling the men dogs then read this next bit:

    Get back gruffy, mash scruffy
    Get back you flea infested mongrel
    Now I tell meh self dem man go get angry
    Ah yepee ah yo
    To hear them girls calling them canine

    It’s saying that men who attack women for being ‘ugly’ or refuse to leave them alone are worse than stray mongrels! It plainly points out that women do not want or appreciate the attention and so taunt them with the verse of ‘who let the dogs out’ because they are both unable to control themselves and vile little creatures. Learn to do some fucking research.

    Oh.

    PSA: because I keep seeing that shitty manipulated photo of Emma Watson on my dash. THAT PHOTO WAS PHOTOSHOPPED.  The original photo (with another from the same shoot, is from 2011 with Mariano Vivanco) are pictured above. Please don’t perpetuate this error. 

    Deliberately spreading an altered image of Emma Watson which purports to show her breasts as a statement against threats of nude photo leaks is the height of hypocrisy and whoever did it should be ashamed. (x)
