Sarah Slattery: A Tale of a Slattern Woman

The tellings of a victorian nympomaniac.

Ok so I don’t know how many people know about this, but there is a program to fund the production of a realistic doll, named ‘Lammily’
I suggest you watch the video on the website for the best information, but I’ll try to sum it up.
Lammily is a doll that accurately portrays the body of an average 19 year old female. (this line alone should be a shocker, but I’ll go on)
Lammily is not overly made up. Her make-up and clothing are simple, and, in my opinion, look like they came from a real teenager’s closet. She also, in the website’s words: “Promotes a healthy lifestyle” by coming with sports clothing.
The creator of Lammily, Nickolay Lamm, says that he wishes to make more dolls; ones that portray other body types and ethnicities.
However, this cannot happen if the project is not funded.
The project goal is $95,000 and there are only—as of May 3, 2014— 29 days left for this doll to become a reality.
I’ve never asked for anything from the Tumblr community, but I’ve seen how things can go viral on here. So I’m asking, begging you: Spread this like the flu. Get anyone you know to back it, even if it’s as little as one dollar.
We could finally prove that a realistic doll would sell. We could show that we’re sick of the unrealistic body images you just can’t seem to avoid in the doll’s isle. We can make this happen.

Wish me luck, I am about to go on an anti candida diet. I will literally not be  able to eat anything. It should be a fun month forever.

Fwiw: I’m the hottest mother-fucking sickly person I know. Put that in my chart, doc. – Read on Path.

Can I be the second?

“Then, from behind me, I heard a growl. Oh, no, they’ve brought a dog, I thought…Behind me, the dog whined. A cold nose poked my ear, and a warm tongue licked it. I tried to raise my hand to pet the dog that had undoubtedly saved my life…”And what about the dog?” I said. I turned to look at my savior. He wasn’t there.”

“Then he stood looking at me with wide, crackling blue eyes, and I felt a surge of heat rushing out from him…I stared right into his eyes for a long moment, then I remembered myself, and I jumped back as his hands dropped away…Sam desired me.”

“So my amazing daughter, Emma, turned 5 last month, and I had been searching everywhere for new-creative inspiration for her 5yr pictures. I noticed quite a pattern of so many young girls dressing up as beautiful Disney Princesses, no matter where I looked 95% of the “ideas” were the “How to’s” of  how to dress your little girl like a Disney Princess…We chose 5 women (five amazing and strong women), as it was her 5th birthday but there are thousands of unbelievable women (and girls) who have beat the odds and fought (and still fight) for their equal rights all over the world

Marion Crane:

Wouldn't it be better if you put her someplace?

Norman Bates:

You mean an institution? A madhouse? People always call a madhouse "someplace", don't they? Put her in someplace.

Marion Crane:

I'm sorry. I didn't mean it to sound uncaring.

Norman Bates:

What do you know about caring? Have you ever seen inside one of those places? The laughing and the tears and the cruel eyes studying you?
