Since it’s summer and this mindset begins to pop up more, let us clarify something.

Girls being upset over being seen in bra/panties but not bikinis is not a double standard.

If she’s in a bikini, it’s what she consciously chose to wear and be seen in, in a public space, and like any outfit she was prepared to be seen in it by other people.

If you’ve caught a girl in her underwear, however, you’re probably trespassing in her bedroom, bathroom, or other personal space, where she should be in privacy, and she has every right to be upset if that privacy is violated.

It’s not about what she’s wearing or what it is covering, but rather her privacy and consent to be seen in the first place. Please respect that.

Omg, amazing that someone thought to explain this

Nujood Ali was ten when she fled her abusive, much older husband and took a taxi to the courthouse in Sanaa, Yemen.  The girl’s courageous act—and the landmark legal battle that  ensued—turned her into an international heroine for women’s rights. Now  divorced, she is back home with her family and attending school again.

STUDY: More Than Half Of Black Girls Are Sexually Assaulted

so-treu:

Sixty percent of black girls have experienced sexual abuse at the hands of black men before reaching the age of 18, according to an ongoing study conducted by Black Women’s Blueprint.

More than 300 black women nationwide participated in the study and 700 more are being sought to take in the survey by March 2012.

Farah Tanis, Co-Founder of the New York-based organization and co-author of the study, says the issue of domestic and sexual abuse in the black community is rarely discussed and that a sixty percent rate should be a wake-up call to black women.

“A similar study which was conducted by The Black Women’s Health Imperative seven years ago found that that number was about 40 percent,” Tanis says. “So that means there is an increase and we need to stop neglecting that issue.”

Amanda Conner And Jan Duursema Create Female Superheroes For Nike

Where do you find the most female superheroes created by women today? In advertising for Nike, it seems. Amanda Conner and Jan Duursema have been hired by the trainers brand to design a bunch of advertising materials for their new campaign Make Yourself: A Super Power, demonstrating the abilities of certain clothing from the Nike range for the Winter training season, in the manner of superhero costumes. Expect to see Amanda and Jan’s work in the most unusual of places. And hopefully in a comic book or two along the road, as well.

I am in love with all of these.  And if you click through the link, there’s an awesome layout of sports bras by Amanda that made me giggle— at last, a comics artist who knows what a sports bra is!

 I LOVE IT.

Shockingly powerful ad for eating disorders. I am also very, very impressed with the creative team that came up with this. Very cogent method to get a message across. Plus, using a Sigur Ros song makes this even better.
