This past week, I have been in Indiana visiting Cristina, Jon, and their wonderful baby, Olivia (Olive). Since it’s been so cold and we’ve been home all week, Cristina and I decided to do a fun little craft project with Olivia.

Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others love them. Some wear lots of clothes with a corset. Some only wear the corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.
“Graphic designer James Harris has taken the periodic table of the elements, which catalogs the basic building blocks necessary for all life in the universe, and done something useful with it. Harris’ Periodic Table Of Storytelling takes several of the film, television, and video game clichés assembled so thoroughly by the website TV Tropes, assigns them the equivalent of an atomic name and number, and gathers them together in a big, beautiful parody of the periodic table.”
