I wanted to change the layout so the “X Comments” link was at the bottom (in the hopes it would encourage more commenting 🙂 ) and while I was at it I picked out a “custom header” from the photos on my computer.
I like the one I chose because of the way it shows many of the problems with women’s representation in popular media– there’s a woman, and she’s even “central” but ultimately the focus isn’t on her (she doesn’t even have a head!) The people who are active are the two men, upon whom she must lean, who look right at the camera from positions of strength. Even the camel gets to have its face shown (though it’s blurry)– only the woman is looked at exclusively for her body.
I’m happy with the choice but really want to show off the two others I was considering because I like them a lot, too.
I’ll probably fuss with it as my mood changes but for now I’m pleased.
