Still on the fence about whether American Apparel's advertisement is misogynist or not? Maybe this sideshow will convince you. They say a picture is worth a million words. In this case it's worth a million feminist male gaze theory-gasms.
After discovering some vast differences between the way the company was advertising its unisex clothing to women and men, a Swedish fashion blogger, Michaela Forni, decided to take matters in her own hands.
Unless we can stop ALL of this objectification and sexualization of women in this form and in pornography, a topless woman exercising her right to be topless in NY will be a set of boobs, sexualized and looked at as male entertainment.
Now the annual poll from the American Academy of Facial and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) reports that social media activity may be driving an uptick in plastic surgery requests
That’s especially concerning since the survey also found that while social media is influencing patients’ decisions to get surgery, it’s not serving as a resource for identifying and vetting surgeons or procedures. Comments from previous patients and advice about recovery can be valuable, if supplemented with objective assessments, for patients shopping for a doctor or wanting to learn more about a procedure, but in 2012, only 7% of patients used social media to research doctors and surgical options, a drop from the 35% who did so in 2011.
A run-of-the-mill LinkedIn user agreement update has revealed that the professional networking site has been an unwilling host to the world’s oldest profession.
This is news to Dennis Hof, owner of several legal Nevada brothels, including the infamous Moonlite Bunny Ranch, and LinkedIn member since 2012. “What’s the problem? We have a license to do this,” said Hof, whose employees also have LinkedIn accounts. “Our business is as legal as theirs. We’re the good guys. We have no reason to be knocked off.
Probably not the best business for the site, someone was obviously 'networking' and found this tidbit of information.
If you ask me which is immoral: floating people payday loans or credit cards at interest rates people can't pay back OR becoming an escort, I would tell you I have a lot more respect for the escort, period. Yet the CEO of a payday loan company can float a profile on LinkedIn and a legal escort can't.
The Nu Project is a no-glamor honest look at beauty and image in our world.
Female nudity isn’t hard to come by in the media, but the bodies we see usually represent a fairly limited scope of sizes and shapes. The Nu Project, a collection of nude photographs shot by Minneapolis photographer Matt Blum, seeks to add some variety to the mix. Blum started The Nu Project in 2005 but said it really took off when his wife, Katy Kessler, became the project’s editor.

A model decided to surprise her fellow commuters by joining their trek to work completely in the nude.
The brunette woman only wore her glasses and shoes for the journey, and, in place of her clothes, she decided to brazenly place words describing the pieces of attire that they would expect to see on her skin.
This entire ordeal is part of a project by Milo Moire, the Swiss artist.
It is entitled, The Script System, and has been designed to shake up the “ordinary.” Moire remarked that the models’ walk around the vehicle in the nude was supposed to make people think outside the box on their daily commute to work.

Talia Joy Castellano, from Orlando, Florida, was first diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma cancer on Valentine's Day in 2007.
While I can admire this brave young girl's positive attitude and desire to make the best of a terrible situation, she is being used to promote subtle propaganda. The population is being taught to celebrate disease and passively accept--and even glorify death, instead of being encouraged to question WHY are more and more people being afflicted with cancer
A woman got the shock of her life when she saw intimate photos of herself on the internet that had been posted without her permission. She says the timing of when they appeared, right after her breakup with her boyfriend, is no coincidence.

Infatuation with kids, again.

A strike reminder of GG Allen and his bizare lyrics
I knew you in high school, your tits used to make me drool I knew if I had a chance, I'd get into your underpants I'm gonna rape you
Hundreds of French Facebook users bared all this week in a protest against the social media site’s strict censorship of nude photos. But the “Day of Nude” protest was cut short early when Facebook's photo police took swift action.

A lively internet campaign to get rid of Page 3 has collected more than 100,000 signatures and received the support of the Girl Guides. Another campaign, The Women's Room, is encouraging women to add their names to a database of female experts to counter male bias in the media. And the pioneering feminist magazine Spare Ribis being relaunched in both paper and online editions
Anyone who believes gender equality is no longer an issue, the economic crisis is a wakeup call. Unemployment among women rose by almost 20% between 2009 and 2012, compared with 0.32% among men
The sex was rated shocking by some, and not all by others. The violence was generally agreed to be disturbing and harder to handle than reading it in a book. Kathy (former writer for GeekDad and GeekMom, btw) wondered what the demographic of readership was. Men to women? Were typical comic book readers, aka geeky white men, fans of Saga? We don’t know.

I must admit, in the beginning, I thought I would hate Sexy Feminism. With the subhead “A Girl’s Guide to Love, Success, and Style,” the cover words are superimposed over a close-up photo of glossy, sultry, slightly-parted lips.
It’s true, this book is not for queers. It is not for trans* people, it is not for Women’s Studies majors writing their theses on Simone de Beauvoir and it is not for Pussy Riot, Femen, Amina Tyler or Malala Yousafzai.
