Shopping for clothes online? How to make sure you love your purchases

Shopping online

Thanks to online clothing stores, there’s no need to brave bad weather or bustling crowds to get all of the latest looks that you love, as you can simply order them to be sent straight to your home instead, without even having to stand up.

Tit for tat? Nah! Tit for tit!

 

Male nipple

 

A little over two years ago, I was temporarily banned, or rather my Facebook page for amazingwomenrock.com was temporarily banned from Facebook for posting an image of a woman with her mouth taped shut and the caption: Don't Tap it and Wrap it, Tape Her and Rape Her.

You can see the image and the subsequent post about it at these links:

Yesterday, I ran into this story about artist Micol Hebron who's Facebook page was shut down three times last week (July 2015) by Facebook, first for posting the image above, and then for posting a link to an article about the fact that she had been banned.

The article says:

"Hebron has gotten some criticism from those who say that focusing on nipples is a small matter compared to larger issues of gender inequality. 'I certainly agree,' she says, 'but not valuing bodies equally is a fundamental issue and when you inherently value a certain demographic less, it leads to all of the other things. It leads to the wage gap, to domestic abuse, to rape. It’s at the core, when fundamental human respect doesn’t play out evenly on the field of images.'"

I agree.

This AWR post is in solidarity with Micol Hebron. Herr website is here.

you are more than enough already

Im enough The Mrs 

Austin Texas rock band The Mrs noticed  the same thing I did in 2005 when I first started AmazingWomenRock.com.

Many women don't think very highly of themselves. Many of us don't realize how truly amazing we are.

Each one of us, regardless of whether we know it or not contributes in a wonderful, magical, meaningful way to the world around us.

Like me, The Mrs decided to do something about the deficit they saw.

They wrote a song. And  then they experimented with a magic mirror in a mall.

Here's what happened:

 

Should math and evolution be taught in school? Hmmmm. Tough question.

Miss USA on Math

 

I stumbled on a 2011 video that shocked me.

It purported to be of Miss USA contestants answering the question “Should math be taught in schools?”

I watched in horror as the first few young women gave their answers:

 

 

It didn’t take me long to realize it was a parody – a satirical piece poking fun at somthing else. "But at what?” I wondered. Where was the original?

I looked for more information.

Ah. A video by @mackenzief, @kevgot, Leslie Collins, @gracehelbig, @lorrainecink, @jencurran, @risasarachan, @FarynEinhorn, Corinne Donly, @sarajanetaylor, @ericmpearson, Elias Altman, @mclendaniel

They were dissing this:

 

 

The answers shook me. Evolution is a "theory" that should NOT be taught in schools?

Oh. My. God.
