Three illustrations by Virginia Frances Sterrett (1900-1931).

The paintings were commissioned for the American edition of Comtesse de Ségur’s Old French Fairy Tales when Sterrett was just 19. Tragically, this talented young artist was diagnosed with tuberculosis and managed to illustrate just two more books due to her failing health (Tanglewood Tales by Nathaniel Hawthorne and Arabian Nights). She died at the age of 31.

Now THIS is a bold lingerie ad.

When the star model for Forever Yours Lingerie was diagnosed with cancer, the brand decided to stick with her.

Tom Megginson at The Ethical Admanapproves:

“So, while American Eagle is getting virtual hugs and high fives for its commitment to not photoshopping its typical-looking models,  elsewhere there are brands and models who are willing to show us what it really takes to do something about the fashion industry’s body image problem.”

BREAKING: 40,000 Voter-Registration Applications Submitted by Blacks and Hispanics Disappear in Ga. →

thepoliticalfreakshow:

It’s one thing to misplace your keys, your wallet, a receipt from Macy’s or your favorite pen, but Georgia’s secretary of state cannot account for approximately 40,000 voter-registration applications that, if processed, would enfranchise predominantly black and Hispanic Georgians.

According to an Al-Jazeera report, it’s a sentiment that the staffers at Third Sector Development are expressing. The nonprofit organization was on a mission to register as many black and Hispanic people in the state of Georgia as possible so that voter turnout for the upcoming midterm elections in November would be high. And they were successful at it, until they received word that about half of the applications they submitted for processing have gone missing in action.

“Over the last few months, the group submitted some 80,000 voter-registration forms to the Georgia secretary of state’s office—but as of last week, about half those new registrants, more than 40,000 Georgians, were still not listed on preliminary voter rolls. And there is no public record of those 40,000-plus applications, according to state Rep. Stacey Adams, a Democrat,” Al-Jazeera explained.

Georgia Secretary of State Brain Kemp explained that his office is not doing anything differently from how it usually processes applications. But some people aren’t buying his story, seeing as how he’s a Republican, and black and Hispanic people tend to vote for Democrats.

Georgia Republicans have been raising eyebrows for some time now with regard to early voting and voter-ID issues. One state Republican didn’t like how black and Hispanic voters had easy access to early-voting opportunities.

The “Republican whip of the state Senate complained that DeKalb County, Ga., was making it too easy for minorities to vote by allowing early voting in an area mall close to many predominantly African-American churches,” Think Progress reports.

Third Sector Development is not taking lightly the news that no one knows what became of its hard work to get people to register to vote. The group is going to court so that a judge can look into it.

“To that end, Third Sector Development announced yesterday that, after weeks of fruitless negotiations with the state, they were going to court to find out the status of the missing registrations—or, more to the point, the eligibility of more than 40,000 potential voters,” Al-Jazeera reports.

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons

I go to the University of Utah and I literally had no idea this was happening. Wow. Not surprised though. There’s a lot of hatred here, under the repressed white heteronormativity.

Yesterday I attended a protest against Columbus Day in Los Angeles. The rally started on Olvera Street across the way from Union Station then  to the cathedral in downtown L.A. We stood in front of the church for a half an hour, preaching of what obscenities the church allowed against the indigenous people of the Americas. The church was also built on sacred land.

While we were there, there was a group of white people staring at us as we protested on the other side of the street. A little whitey mocked us while the ignorant white girls sneered. An old white man we nicknamed Skip shouted “Boo!” while our words were said through the microphone of the injustice the church brought upon 100 million people.

Later, we marched with our signs held high to the Columbus statue in Grand Park of downtown L.A. It was set there in the park in 1976 (first picture of the set), the plaque stating the Columbus discovered America and is a “legend among immortals”. We returned to Olvera street where there were dancers celebrating the indigenous people that were once here.

It was hot but it was worth marching for this—to change Columbus Day  just as Seattle has done. There should be no holiday marking a terrorist and murderer. 

Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day!
