INVICTUS: A comic tribute to Nelson Mandela
IM GOING TO STAB MYSELF IN THE FOOT I JUST SENT MY ENGLISH TEACHER MY ESSAY ON HAMLET AND IT WAS STILL NAMED “the fresh prince of denmark yo holla”
As a professor? I would laugh til I spilled my vodka and pissed myself if a student sent me a paper with that title.
The upper house of French Parliament voted in favor of banning child beauty pageants (for contestants under 16) as part of a larger bill on women’s rights. The proposal is that anyone found organizing a child beauty pageant would face prison charges and fines of up to $40,000.
Legislators argue that these child pageants negatively influence girls’ body image and sense of self-worth. The hypersexualization of children has sparked controversy in French media before, after a 10-year old was dressed provocatively in a 2010 Vogue spread sparking a dialogue about this very issue.
Similarly, there has been discussion of putting a health warning on heavily photoshopped images in a campaign against eating disorders.
Will the initiatives taken in France start a ripple effect in other countries? Should it be illegal or is this part of freedom of expression?
Meanwhile, The American “glitz” or child pageant industry, including famed “Honey Boo Boo,” is a 5 Billion dollar industry.
What a world.

“Imagine getting up in the morning, and seeing that you’ve got a spot. You’ve got a spot, and you don’t think that the world’s come to an end. You just put a bit of… dab a bit of something on it and walk out into the world because you are so happy with yourself and your space that you can just take that space, and you don’t need to apologize for yourself. Imagine that! That would be a great place to be." Emma Thompson- Imagine [x]
