Nipples Are My Specialty
I have perfected altered barbie doll nipples. And it’s your lucky day because I am about to give you my nipple knowledge right here in an OOAK Barbie Nipple Tutorial!
Artist Sarah Levy painted a portrait of Donald Trump using nothing but her menstrual blood. And just to nail her point home she used a tampon as a paint brush. The reasoning behind it is not as far out there as it may sound at first glance.

Buzzfeed loves vaginas, and we love them for it. This time they issued a challenge to six women.

Miley Cyrus gets a lot of hatred piled on her for her clothing choices, or lack of clothing. It’s a constant barrage of people wanting her to be a better role model. Maybe if we listened to what she said we’d realize that she may be eccentric but her words and message are more empowering now than they ever were as Hannah Montana.
There is so much truth in what she says. Bra ads are no problem. They are shown … Keep Reading!!!
As we told you last week, Target has started removing unnecessary gendering in their stores (mainly on toys and entertainment). While they have heard from many presents on this issue over the years, it seems one tweet may have forced Target to take notice and fix its gender signage.

Barbie can be very polarizing, but so can good art. Artist, Catherine Théry re-created famous pieces of art using hand-painted Barbie dolls, usually to replace men. Her goal was to raise questions about beauty, intelligence, and women’s place in society – past and present.
These re-creations were exhibited at Teodora in Paris. The exhibit was titled “Not the ones you think”.
J.K. Rowling is becoming as famous for her epic tweets to haters as she is for writing Harry Potter. In the past she’s taken on everyone from random trolls to Rupert Murdoch. Today she tweeted congratulations to Serena Williams on her historic sixth Wimbledon win.

I want to change the culture around
When this precious 4-year-old was called ugly by a fellow classmate, she was not caught off-guard by the insult. Instead, she responded with poise, sass, and complete control over the conversation.
The boy persisted, but the child was not phased! She ended by giving him a bit of his own medicine, but all in the spirit of teaching the boy a lesson.
