The Week S.O.F.A.R.

The National Sexual Violence Resource Center - linked for April being SAAM (Sexual Assault Awareness Month)

10 Reasons Why Plus Size Is Hotter Than Ever - it isn't much of an "article" but had some good points.

Vanity Fair’s Hollywood Issue Pushes Actresses Of Color Aside (Again!) - the article shows you ELEVEN different covers when the non-white actors/actresses are on the inside flap and not on the cover with their peers.

Once Again, Vanity Fair Keeps Black People Off their Cover - keeping the single black actress they have in this spread off the cover is one thing...there's just so much more wrong with this though. 

What's Wrong With This Picture Illustrating Vanity Fair's Women in Television Article? - Oh see, here we go. This is what's been wrong my whole life. I haven't gone right from the beauty parlor to a sleepover in practically my birthday suit. No wonder I have no fun with my "Girl's Night Out"

SAAM 2012 Healthy Sexuality Resource List

A Look at Race Relations through a Child's Eyes - (Anderson Cooper youtube video) So many thoughts about this video I don't even know where to start. Astonished at the view of some parent's thinking "If you talk about race you're creating the problem"...depends on HOW you're talking about it....wow.

Microsoft, Apple Unite to Demand That the National Organization for Marriage Boycott them - loved this, until they had to go and mention how it could benefit their stock prices. (reminder: the National Organization for Marriage are the assholes...I mean people who think marriage should be between a man and a woman).

I'm Christian, Unless You're Gay - an entry from Nov. '11 from the Single Dad Laughing Blog. Please do not let the title of this blog fool you or blind you with whatever emotions first rise. This blog is about LOVE and the hypocracy we all (not just "christians") have regarding who we should and shouldn't "love".

A Teen's Brave Response to "I'm Christian, Unless You're Gay" - a response from a Proud Mother (be prepared to tear up).

It's Bigger Than Plus Size Fashion - I know I'm just as guilty of focusing mostly on plus-size fashion. But I agree. It's about self acceptance, doing away with sizeism and realizing we're all just people.

I Am Not Trayvon Martin - (youtube video) As a privileged, middle class, educated white woman...I have to agree with this young woman. I understand not wanting to "identify" with the perpetrator of a hate crime - especially if you claim to be an activist working towards the "greater good". But the truth is privilege is privilege. I may sympathize and feel compassion for for Trayvon and his family. But I do not and can not "IDENTIFY" with him.
