Marina Abramović, Rhythm 0, 1974
“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her. She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly. “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.”
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”
Married people do have abortions. They have abortions for all of the same reasons that non-married people do. Stop acting like waiting until marriage is a solution to abortion, it’s borderline offensive.

if these girls were fat, people would be up in arms about the “obesity epidemic” and how unhealthy they are
let a black person do this. It would have been “ghetto” and “ratchet” and “lol niggers and they chicken”
reblogged for the commentary
What could have been.
Alright. I’m just gonna say this once. THIS IS NOT BAD. They were child stars, yes, but now they are beautiful, sexy, successful, adults. If they want to show off their body, go for it! Look how beautiful these women are! We need to stop slut shaming celebs that came from Disney. It’s rude and not fair to them. They have successful careers as adults and there is a new generation of Disney stars for the younger generation to look up to. These women are my age and still my role models because they are confident in their bodies and they do not deserve to be called sluts or whores because they choose to show off their beauty.
