Plus-Sized Woman Rocks Bikini on Hollywood Boulevard to Promote Body Acceptance
Los Angeles is known for many things: great weather, a laidback lifestyle, and Hollywood’s biggest stars. But for many who live in La La Land, the pressure to conform to a certain beauty standard can leave them feeling downright depressed.

Why didn’t this have any notes?

The film based on Nobel Laureate Alice Munro's “Hateship Courtship Loveship Friendship Marriage” opens on Friday: http://www.ifcfilms.com/films/hateship-loveship
"Kristin Wiig’s turn as a dowdy caretaker is the highlight of this contemporary American take on Cinderella." — The Hollywood Reporter”
"Liza Johnson makes fine, steady progress with this delicate and absorbing character study starring Kristen Wiig."— Variety
  In the her tenth collection (the title story of which is the basis for the new film “Hateship Loveship”), Alice Munro achieves new heights, creating narratives that loop and swerve like memory, and conjuring up characters as thorny and contradictory as people we know ourselves. A tough-minded housekeeper jettisons the habits of a lifetime because of a teenager’s practical joke. A college student visiting her brassy, unconventional aunt stumbles on an astonishing secret and its meaning in her own life. An incorrigible philanderer responds with unexpected grace to his wife’s nursing-home romance. Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage is Munro at her best, tirelessly observant, serenely free of illusion, deeply and gloriously humane. Read an excerpt here: http://ow.ly/vBcde

Quoted from www.nydailynews.com:

She may be a living doll, but she doesn’t have a pretty mouth.

Valeria Lukyanova, the Ukranian woman dubbed “Human Barbie” because of her multiple plastic surgeries, shared her thoughts on race and beauty in a new interview with GQ Magazine — implying that the push for plastic surgery procedures in the Western world is “because of the race-mixing.”

"Ethnicities are mixing now, so there’s degeneration, and it didn’t used to be like that," said Lukyanova, according to GQ.

"Remember how many beautiful women there were in the 1950s and 1960s, without any surgery? And now, thanks to degeneration, we have this."

"I love the Nordic image myself," continued Lukyanova, whose age has been reported as 38. "I have white skin; I am a Nordic type - perhaps a little Eastern Baltic, but closer to Nordic."

The conversation shocked her interviewer, GQ Russia editor Michael Idov, who dubbed his subject “a racist space alien.”

(Via nydailynews)

This is not the first time Ms. Lukyanova had been publicly caught referring to her ignorant ideals. Not only is she against racial mixing, she is also a firm believer in Hitler’s Nazi ideologies, anti-semitism, the super Aryan race, and racial segregation. She does not believe in helping the less fortunate and feels “uncomfortable” around those with disabilities. She is against feminism and believes in traditional strict gender roles blaming POC, the LGBTQA community, and the multiple civil rights movements for the demise of social order. From the pictures above we can see she is wearing a bindi, she does participate in cultural appropriation. Upon searching her name you will come across various images of her dawning southern Asian attire while simultaneously mocking the culture.

She has been quoted stating: “I only dislike an appearence of niggers, arabs etc. But I’m not a racist. I’m just an esthete.”

A quick google search will tell you all you need to know on her belief system. She is not shy when it comes to sharing her racist/ignorant opinions.

I find it very disheartening that the news coverage of this James Franco story is that he “flirted” and “chatted” with this 17-year-old girl instead of calling him out for what it really is: being a predator. He very clearly tried to have sex with her and was well aware of her age. This is is not, as he called it, “a model of how social media is tricky,” and the media not calling him out his inappropriate behavior is really giving me all the rage today. 

He literally asked if he could book a hotel room for them. What the hell does the media think he wanted to do in said hotel room, bat his eyelashes and play footsie? 

Motherfucker wasn’t tryna take her to the damn sock hop and then to the diner for malts.

Go fuck yourself, Franco. You disgust me.

“The point is not for women simply to take power out of men’s hands, since that wouldn’t change anything about the world. It’s a question precisely of destroying that notion of power.” 
― Simone de Beauvoir

this makes me so happy because I always say it. don’t tear down another woman to impress a man. if we supported each other, we would rule the world.

Do you still need more proof of rape culture?

As Noam Chomsky once pointed out for Z Magazine, old media types from the institutional bodies like American Enterprise Institute tend to regurgitate the same ideas with a reliability that is equally impressive and infuriating. While assuring the public that rape is a terrible crime, writers like Caroline Kitchens and Heather McDonald of right-wing think tank The Manhattan Institute try to claim that feminists have blown this whole rape culture thing way out of proportion.

Apparently, many women disagree. On Tuesday there were more than 1 million responses on the #RapeCultureIsWhen hashtag started by a frustrated Zerlina Maxwell in response to these right-wing narratives.

SIGNAL BOOST!!!

SO glad we’re talking about the dress code issue. In eighth grade a girl at my school was touched by a guy and we had an entire assembly about how girls shouldn’t dress “slutty” unless they wanted to attract male attention. For Christ’s sake I can’t even walk into AP without my teacher harassing me about my leggings and how I’m always with “a male partner.” Last week she even pretended to auction me off to the other males in the class because, and I quote, “If you don’t want to be treated like property, then don’t act like it.”
