A student blows up at a teacher, drops the F-bomb. The usual approach at Lincoln – and, safe to say, at most high schools in this country – is automatic suspension. Instead, Sporleder sits the kid down and says quietly: “Wow. Are you OK? This doesn’t sound like you. What’s going on?”
He gets even more specific: “You really looked stressed. On a scale of 1-10, where are you with your anger?” The kid was ready. Ready, man! For an anger blast to his face….”How could you do that?” “What’s wrong with you?”…and for the big boot out of school. But he was NOT ready for kindness.
The armor-plated defenses melt like ice under a blowtorch and the words pour out: “My dad’s an alcoholic. He’s promised me things my whole life and never keeps those promises.” The waterfall of words that go deep into his home life, which is no piece of breeze, end with this sentence: “I shouldn’t have blown up at the teacher.” Whoa.
what a radical idea yo
Bam. Kids “misbehave” for actual, real, valid reasons. And have feelings.

What the World Eats
These amazing portraits feature pictures of families from different countries with a week’s worth of food purchases. The photos, from the book Hungry Planet: What the World Eats by Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluision, reveal a stark contrast between cultures and expose the proliferation of processed foods in the western diet and in the diets of many developing countries. Some people have more to eat and, too often, eat more nutritionally questionable food. And their health suffers. It’s no wonder that we are seeing an increase in diseases related to diet & lifestyle choices. We also learn that diet is determined largely by uncontrollable forces like poverty, conflict and globalization.

“Historically speaking, animating female characters are really, really difficult, ’cause they have to go through these range of emotions, but they’re very, very — you have to keep them pretty and they’re very sensitive to — you can get them off a model very quickly. So, having a film with two hero female characters was really tough, and having them both in the scene and look very different if they’re echoing the same expression; that Elsa looking angry looks different from Anna being angry.” — Lino Disalvo on animating Frozen, explaining (essentially) why they removed all the female supporting characters and replaced them with men. [[edited for accuracy]]
Yeah, I call bullshit.
don’t blame women because you’re a shitty animator
so basically what you’re saying is
"it was too harddddddd I didn’t wannaaaaaa."
"i dont care enough about women to animate them like reeeaaal peopleeee"
No. You don’t understand. You’re all ignorant fuckwads. Let me explain you a thing. Female faces? They’re softer. As in regardless of bone structure their faces are SOFT looking. Because of this, light bends differently and catches angles differently and the what not. Its harder to animate/draw/paint the female form, as any artist. It’s the same issue with babies- the SOFTNESS of the figure makes it harder to art them. And now I’m done with this tangent flies into the sun.
As evidenced by all of these guys with soft faces
none of whom are impressed by your sexist bullshit
female skin is NOT different from male skin, biologically
female skin isn’t softer, you’re just trained to think of it that way by media and our societal expectation that women use make-up to MAKE their skin look softer, which has not been done all throughout history and thus doesn’t actually make any sense in a movie set in a historical time period when nobody expected anybody to have flawless skin
the problem isn’t animating women
the problem is animating women to look like an ideal while still keeping them diverse
If animators treated women like humans beings they wouldn’t have this problem
look at all of these soft faces
Don’t even fucking talk to me about Kadaj
This gifset is making you look as sexist as you are, say cheese!
Look at Shrek and Fiona next to each other
It doesn’t matter if they’re humans or ogres
their skin is animated exactly the same
Same for Lem and Neera
OH WOW HER SKIN IS SO MUCH SOFTER AND MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN HIS are you fucking kidding me with this
Basically fuck you
This is amazing.
Also I quite often have teachers tell me I need to down grade the way I draw noses and eyebrows and such on women. Draw less lines and details on women, they must all be beautiful and soft looking. I’ve actually had a teacher say: that’s why anime is so successful because the eyes are so big and they hardly even draw the nose. It’s appealing and should be used when always drawing women and children. AND THIS IRRITATES ME SO MUCH. I know it sells but I don’t want that. I want diverse, REALISTIC and different women with big noses and bushy eyebrows. With cheekbones and square jaws even. Not every female has a tiny, perfect nose, round features and perfect soft skin. arrrrrg
I.. I’m just so happy that people are using both 3D and traditional animation in this post about animation… it’s so wonderful to see… thank you ;_;

Petra Collins Talks About Her Controversial Period Vagina Shirt
My friend Petra Collins—who has done all sorts of wonderful photography work for VICE, along with the all-female art collective she founded and curates, The Ardorous—caused an entertaining storm of controversy this week. Petra designed a t-shirt for American Apparel with a simplistic line drawing depicting a masturbating, menstruating woman with pubic hair. All sorts of people who can’t handle female sexuality have called the shirt “vile,” “disgusting,” “gross,” and “icky” while adding “ew wtf” for good measure. Petra’s $32 t-shirt has been written up by The Daily Mail, The Huffington Post, TIME, and a whole bunch of other blogs and media outlets who are trying to “figure out” the controversy.
In order to have a rational and intelligent conversation about a drawing on a t-shirt that is making a bunch of crazy people upset, I gave Petra a call on Skype last night and we talked it out.
VICE: What do you think of the media storm you’ve started?
Petra Collins: It’s really awesome. I’m not surprised. It’s exactly what I wanted because it totally proves my point…
And what is your point?
That we’re so shocked and appalled at something that’s such a natural state—and it’s funny that out of all the images everywhere, all of the sexually violent images, or disgustingly derogatory images, this is something that’s so, so shocking apparently. The graphic on my shirt is a line drawing, too. It’s not even a full-on image.
Yeah. In Grand Theft Auto V I can chase an elderly person down the street and shoot them 60 times with an assault rifle. I could literally do that for hours if I wanted to. No one cares. And yet your t-shirt shirt is the worst thing ever.
Yeah. The worst thing ever.
How did you react when the headlines started rolling in?
If you want to know my literal reaction I was laughing really hard. I called my sister and we were both just like, “oh my god.” Deep down it really saddens me but it’s also awesome that I’ve just trolled the mainstream media.
I did a very short interview for City TV—they took a two-second sound clip and I don’t even remember what I said—that they edited with peoples’ reactions on the street saying “oh that’s disgusting” and stuff like that. Except for one dude who thought it was awesome.
