People Are Protesting Hobby Lobby In The Best Way Ever (PHOTOS)

Global Grind

If you thought proponents of birth control were taking a back seat in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling that allows for-profit companies to refuse coverage of contraception for religious reasons, think again.

In the most creative, delightfully shady and crafty way, women who are deemed less human than corporations (and their supporters) have taken to Hobby Lobby’s own crafting material to send a clear message.

Get the fuck out of our wombs.

It started with the picture above, one simple message designed with letter blocks at a Hobby Lobby Maryland branch by Policy Mic’s Adam Peck.

“It just seemed like a perfect opportunity to stage a kind of a silent protest, and the chance to use Hobby Lobby’s own products to do it was just too serendipitous to pass up,” Peck told Policy Mic. “I certainly don’t want to encourage other people to ransack their local…

This should be on EVERY show for beauty and fashion!!

Blackness

This is a conversation we need more of: standards of beauty. I would generally advice against young black girls reading beauty magazines that almost always seem to glorify western standards of beauty: straight flowing hair, blonde as beautiful “bombshell”, size zero, plucked symmetrical eyebrows, and so forth. These magazines set a particular standard of beauty that excludes black girls and their entire attendant features of blackness. They seem to shout out—together with their inauspicious “how to lose belly fat”, “how to land the perfect man”, “how to make an entrance”—how to be validated, acknowledged, respected, and celebrated through your physical appearance alone. This has reached an indignant zenith through the glorification of talentless celebrities parading that standard of beauty in useless reality shows.

The media is preoccupied and saturated with images of beauty that are non-representative of an entire race. If your ‘beauty’ is outside of that standard, as a…

It’s no secret that First Lady Michelle Obama is extremely passionate about higher education, and this month she explains more to ESSENCE Editor-in-Chief Vanessa K. Bush.

A major ingredient in the recipe for success has to do with nurturing resilience in our children, Michelle explained.

“I know I tell my kids all the time that they shouldn’t shy away from difficult things, because that is the point at which you are really growing. It’s not just about grades or test scores. Today our kids may shy away from applying to college if they think they don’t have the right grade or test score. But the truth is that the kids who succeed and go on to be successful professionals are the ones who know how to work hard,” says Mrs. Obama.
