While a liquid soap dispenser is very convenient, a good old solid bar of soap is a much ‘greener’ option, as it’s more concentrated and doesn’t require a plastic bottle. But squishy, wet soap bars next to the basin are a pain, and they harbour bacteria too. So, what to do? Young designer Nathalie Stämpfli has come up with a very satisfactory solution with her Soap Flakes soap holder. It takes an ordinary bar of soap, and shaves off tiny soap flakes every time you want to wash your hands.
Brilliant! The main reason I don’t like bars of soap is because I don’t want to rub a slippery germ fest on my body that someone else has been rubbing on their body. This would probably do the trick
PLUS this would make a lot of people stop using brand name cancerfests (aka liquid soaps produced by big companies) and start supporting local/poor POC supporting themselves with soap businesses. I know there are a few on tumblr and I always wanted to buy their soap but I hate bar soaps because my mobility issue means I can’t hold onto a soap bar when it’s wet/pick it up when it falls etc etc it’s a disaster.
This is not a disaster though. This is brilliant.
…USPS announced…it would print a stamp recognizing Shirley Chisholm, the first black woman to serve in Congress and the first woman to seek the Democratic presidential nomination…
Have y’all seen this trailer for The Switch? A trans woman of color stars, and it looks like the whole cast is trans! I would watch the shit out of this.
i NEED TO SEE THIS.
looking at the website, and it seems like the character who seems to be a trans man spectrum person (idk maybe i’m reading it wrong) (chris, the one with short hair and what looks like a bound chest), is actually played by a trans woman, who identifies herself as soft butch. THIS IS INCREDIBLE I REALLY NEED TO SEE THIS LIKE NOW
I was backing this on Kickstarter but they cancelled the project to look for funding elsewhere. Super excited if there’s progress!
One of the ways that authors and their books get into circulation in libraries, classrooms, on the desks of book critics at the New York Times, and other useful places, is via the complex, often shrouded, world of professional arts. Part of the reason you go to a residency at MacDowell is to…
Hey, just taking a moment to plug the Authors of Color blog - moderated by some exciting new folks - including Tayari Jones (author of Silver Sparrow and Leaving Atlanta, to name a few), StrugglingtoBeHeard and So-Treu(digital feminists of black twitter and tumblr fame), and a few us other relatively nameless bloggers who write and sometimes even publish works of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.
Our goal is to increase readership of writers of color among all races - yes white folks, you can read us too ;) ! We want to show our stories are relatable, readable, even marketable. Please continue to signal boost and follow our page so that we can show the world just how viable and important authors of color and their stories are.
If you are an author of color on tumblr and would like to submit to us or potentially even moderate, please write in. We’re always looking to be more inclusive and would love to sponsor your book or latest article.
boost =D. please show support. I’m helping to Mod the site and once classes are done we are really going to be doing some things. you can send me a message on my main blog as well if you want me to add something to our queue on authors of color!
yaaay! i am helping to mod as well, so come check us out!!!!!! *dougies*
