Yea it’s clearly our “generation that’s making homosexuality a trend.” Seriously, pisses me off when people say that. look at this! It’s always been around, it’s not a trend, it’s real. It’s beautiful.

These are really beautiful images.

This makes me really happy

There’s a long history of lesbian-like activity in the West.  In the 19th century US, especially after the Civil War killed off so many young men, middle-class and other genteel girls were encouraged in Boston marriages — relationships with other women of similar educational and class backgrounds.  Since women were considered naturally chaste and disinterested in sex, these love affairs were seen as innocent and spiritual.  Women’s lives were wholly separate from men’s that young women infrequently had male friends who weren’t considered a marriage prospect.  They were encouraged to keep to all-female social circles, and the advent of women’s colleges further encouraged that.  Women were expected to mentor each other, love each other, dance with each other, with the older woman acting as the cavalier, the man in the relationship, protecting and guiding the younger, pursuing her and courting her in ways not unlike how young men would court their brides.  But the prevailing cultural wisdom was that these relationships would be limited to kisses and poetry — women were incapable of sexual desire, they tolerated sex in heterosexual marriages because men were sex-driven beasts who demanded it of them.  Without a man, it was presumed that these relationships would be chaste, innocent, and wholly emotional.  Lesbian-like behaviour is most tolerated when women are perceived as less sexual than men.  Homosexual behaviour becomes threatening when sex is involved — when, in the 1920s, women were seen as able to have sexual drives and the idea of sexually companionable marriages came onto the landscape, Boston marriages suddenly became unnatural and disgusting because they directed women’s sexual interests towards other women instead of to the proper channels: towards men.  The flapper was all about the sexually available (to men) young woman.  She contributed to the demise of widely accepted lesbian or lesbian-like relationships.  As soon as the flapper was capable of wanting sex herself instead of tolerating it from her male partner, lesbian/lesbian-like relationships were threatening, deviant, and ruined young women’s chances to become good wives and mothers.

So remember this as you look at the pre-1920s images.  Those women were allowed these passionate loves, even encouraged in them (sometimes after they managed to get a husband, Eleanor Roosevelt in particular), all because the patriarchy was convinced that women weren’t capable of sexual feelings towards one another.  As long as women were seen as desexed, as creatures of sentiment and emotion instead of passion and desire, lesbianism wasn’t a threat.  The minute women were regarded by patriarchal culture as having a natural sex drive, lesbian-like behaviour became deviant and damning.

We didn’t invent homosexuality in the past 20 or 30 or 50 years.  But we continue to labour under the belief and cultural expectation that women’s sexuality is something owed to and owned by men, forever de-legitimising women’s relationships unless men in some way benefit.

PLEASE! Jeffery Cambell has stolen a design from Finnish lolita brand Cloudberry Lady. The Bat Girl shoes from Jeffery Cambell are from 2014 (released just a couple of weeks ago) and the original design is from 2013!please signal boost this and help a small brand.”People of tumblr please support a small company! Cloudberry Lady designed Bat Shoes in 2013 and these shoes highly resemble our design. So much it’s almost hard to believe to be just a co-incidence, which I’m not denying it still could be.
But please if you are interested in this kind of shoes I humbly ask you to turn to us first. Thank you! 
Here are links to our tumblr posts of our original designs:

http://emmametso.tumblr.com/post/46929322835/the-bat-shoes-made-and-designed-for-cloudberry”

Please reblog this!! This is still an issue. If you want the original bat shoes, send an e-mail to Cloudberry.Lady@gmail.com . You can choose the color and the material of the shoes and they will be made for your exact shoe size!In some of the notes some people have said that “the idea isn’t original and somebody already did it first”. Really? If you know something about this, please send me a message and the picture. It is true that the idea of using bats or bat wings in shoes has been done. However, I’ve never seen this kind of design, before Cloudberry Lady did it. As you can see there is two kind of designs from this shoe by CL. The upper one has exactly the same kind of top as in JC shoes. The heel of the JC shoes are also narrow, as in the second design in CL shoes. The ONLY thing JC changed in their shoes is the material, heel height and the bat (JC bat doesn’t have ears). The sad part is that Cloudberry Lady has announced that they could have sold the design to JC. That way this whole thing would have been completely legal and fair. But no. Jeffrey Campbell didn’t even bother to ask!
