Glyph Tits Button Pack

8.50

I LOVE glyphs, symbols, icons, pictographs - bits of lines put together to scrape out a feeling or meaning. One day, while I was working on creating digital sigils from symbols and shapes found in the symbols palette, I started seeing titties everywhere. Digital breasts here and there, just waiting to be acknowledged and put together! They made me laugh in that way that we all laughed when we typed 58008 into our calculators in grade school (okay, high school too). But it also made me think - in that weird way that so many seemingly silly things make me think.

What's in a glyph, or a symbol? So many of these symbols that we have access to were created for very specific purposes - often mathematics - but many of them are also direct descendants or copies of ancient pictographs that have been etched into stones since man first learned to draw. Symbols are the first way the humans learned to record and share their history and culture, and they are the things we have traditionally used in all forms of magick to harness, cultivate, and protect us from various energies and entities.

Have you ever sat down and tried to create a symbol, a glyph, a pictograph? It can be incredibly difficult - even impossible feeling - to do so. It seems on the surface like such a small task, such a small creation, but in reality it is so much more intense a challenge than the most detailed painting. Creating a symbol is the act of creating a universal representation - while using incredibly few marks or lines to convey that meaning.

With each symbol, it seems to me that a bit of the mystery of the universe and her effusive energies is harnessed, if even only for a moment. And at the core of it, isn't that what each and every one of us living creatures is? A momentary harnessing of the very forces of existence that keep the cosmos breathing? In this way, aren't we all our own symbols, glyphs, icons? What is an avatar but a humanistic pictograph? And what are we but avatars in the matrix of life and universal reverberation?

Highfalutin - okay, you could see it that way. But this is what these symbols spoke to me as I started to search for the ones that reminded me of the beautiful variety of breasts some of us find ourselves in ownership of. I have so much respect for all the illustrators, designers, makers, and thinkers who have put forward their energies to encourage the de-objectification of the female breast and nipple (and of the human body in general!) - as well as for anyone who dares to embody their true existence, no matter how irrationally uncomfortable that act may make others feel.

I believe that together we can continue to work towards and strive for a culture that frees itself from the oppression and biological xenophobia that so many of us - trans, female, non-binary, male, etc - are affected and marginalized by. The more we all work through love and compassion to find the ways in which we can embody our true physical forms and energies, the more we will discover the freedom to live that truth without making so many people afraid of their own.
