Whoa there, Huffington Post!
Wow. That’s a real thing a real company with millions of dollars did. That was a decision made by adults.
I might make, like, 1/100th of what a Huff Po editor makes, but at least I can sleep at night.
1. A HuffPo editor probably doesn’t make that much. Most web editors (ahem) don’t make that much.
2. Re: the image - GOOD FOR THEM. It’s a good reminder of exactly what we’ll be going back to if the GOP has its way.
I think this is a great litmus test. If someone is more offended by this image than what it represents, they can just fuck right off into a pit of tar.
It’s frank and it’s blunt and it DAMN well needed to be said. Good for Huffington Post. Have the GOP and their “pro-life” supporters even once considered the mortality rate of at-home abortions before Roe vs. Wade!? Banning abortion will not silence the demands for bodily autonomy, it will only increase the dangers of pursuing it.
This is actually fucking brilliant.
When my daughter first showed signs of hating herself, I got out photoshop. We went and found an image of her choosing, of a woman. I spent the next two hours showing her just how easy it was to alter this woman. I changed her hair, whitened her teeth, made her thinner. I erased her blemishes and even made her taller while my daughter sat there aghast. At the end of it she loudly said - ” THAT’S NOT FAIR!”
I told her that damn near every image she saw of people in magazines, on television, etc, was altered like this, and that she should never compare herself to that, because even supermodels don’t look like supermodels.
I wish I could do that for every child. I wish it was a mandatory class in school.
