Tuesday Texture: Banner backgrounds v2–1

Image

Images in this series are free to use.  No credit is necessary.  They’re all old backgrounds I used for webdesign projects.  Slightly smaller set, good for forum sig tags or small site graphics.  I was playing around with a brush set I no longer have, so apologies for lack of credit to the brush makers!

Not All Wars Take Place on the Battlefield

Aside

Trigger Points Anthology

There is a misconception in our culture about who suffers with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and what they look like. A quick Google search will lead you to believe that the majority of those living with PTSD are men in uniform. The reality is that women are twice as likely to develop PTSD than men, and not all wars take place on the battlefield.

ptsd campaign

We have seen great progress in the last few years in mental health awareness related to PTSD among veterans. We would like to expand on that progress to include all who suffer with PTSD. It’s time to accurately represent the thousands of women and men of all colors, ethnicities, ages and socioeconomic background living day to day, while doing the best they can to manage flashbacks, constant triggers and the debilitating medical and mental health effects of this disorder. It’s time to change the face of…

#BeReal – DIANA GORDON

HASTYWORDS

My #BeReal guest today is Diana Gordon.

BLANKBEREAL

I’ve been asked “are they real” more times than I can count—and not just about a sparkly piece of jewelry or pieces of vintage Fiestaware, but about the curls in my hair and the breasts that have always been large-for-my-size.

The same question… As though somehow my accessories and the dishes I eat from are comparable to parts of my body. As though this question isn’t invasive, isn’t somehow indicative of a value judgement, a line between what is “authentic” and what is “fake.”

But how much would it really matter if my DDD cups were implants? How much would it matter if the curls in my hair were permed or painstakingly created with a curling iron every morning? And why? Would my “self” somehow be other than what it is if my body were modified? It can’t be.  Couldn’t be. My body has…
