• Welcome to the new Internet Infidels Discussion Board, formerly Talk Freethought.
  • 2021 Internet Infidels Fundraising Drive
    Greetings! Time for the annual fundraiser.Sorry for the late update, we normally start this early in October. Funds are needed to keep II and IIDB online. I was not able to get an IIDB based donations addon implemented for this year, I will make sure to have that done for next year. You can help support II in several ways, please visit the Support Us page for more info. Or just click:

    I will try to track all donations from IIDB. Many thanks to those that have already donated. The current total is $550. If everyone dontated just $5, we would easily hit our goal.

Offensive fiber artworks

I love the trend of offensive fiber art. Judy Dench embroiders things like "You Are A Shit" with flowers and hearts and gives them as gifts to friends. Purple haired #resisters knit and crochet penises, vaginas, boobs, uteruses, and buttholes, among other things, and "pussy hat" is a thing. It's not all humorous, though. The internet is abound with needlepoint messages about rape or mental illness and tea towels embroidered with slurs and abusive terms toward women and minorities on them in the prettiest decorative old fashioned lettering you've ever seen. Every woman has a voice here, even "Myrna" from Twitter, who simply tweeted that her outburst in Joann's Fabrics is not reflective of who she is, and became an instant rock star across the fiber arts world. There's a big whimsical nerd element to the offensive fiber arts world, too. Lots of science and scientists as well, and tons of politics.

I hope this trend continues for a ridiculously long time. If not, the sentiment will come back around in a few generations and grannies crocheting dicks will be hilarious and necessary yet again, and again it will help to inspire the young girls to weave tapestries depicting all the sex positions listed in urban dictionary or whatever the 2050s equivalent of urban dictionary and hats and scarves for all the houses of Hogwarts or whatever the equivalent of houses of Hogwarts in the future, etc. Hopefully they won't be also stitching up painful messages of abuse and isolation, but hopefully still giving the finger to the status quo regardless.

My son has knitted a few scarves with a black/white pattern that looks pretty simple. if you approach from the right angle, though, you can clearly read 'fuck you' hidden in the pattern.

He sold two to my coworker who gave one to his brother as a gift to start his time in seminary.

Right now, his door is hung with another one that just looks grey, unless you stand to one side, then you see Death from Discworld. He's wishing everyone a happy Hogswatch.

This is awesome in so many ways. :love:

I just saw a cross stitch that says "My drug of choice is the <3 I get from Jesus. Just kidding. It's weed!"

Holy meatballs! Nice quilt. Raaaaa-men!

I like the cross-stitch frame as a meme medium. It is as open-ended as teeshirts.

But, of late, what caught my attention in the 'offensive' fiberworks genre was this:

I'm practicing embroidery on crochet so I can embellish my amigurumi dolls. Here is my first pattern for practice. It will be surrounded by borders, shapes, flowers, etc., in all the stitches I'm learning.

Make one for Malintent that says "die mad about I.T. support over the phone" :D

haha! Or one for Bilby that says, "die mad about the US not using the metric system or celsius and people calling nut juice 'milk'." :D

Geez. Give you Seppos 25.4mm and you take 1.61km. I do have some 0.556 degrees of tolerance, but I draw the line at calling things 'milk' that didn't originate in a mammary gland. It really gets on my tits.

BTW Floof, the vet that visited out dog today has given your cat butt coasters the biggest seal of approval! She particularly likes the black and white, and white ones as the butt bit stood out!

Make people a unicorn butt, and a lot of people will remember you when they want a unicorn butt again.

Floof crocheted me some cat butt coasters, and I paid her for some for my brother as a wedding/housewarming gift.

So yes, if I wanted some, I do know who to ask and I would also know how much to offer as payment for them. :)

Just a bit of a joke.

A while back I said similar when Floofs Cat Butt Coasters were being requested by everyone. If she made the unicorn ones she'd start getting non-stop requests.
