I feel like there’s been so much happening in pop culture lately that it’s been hard for me to keep up with what’s going on in the world, much less post about it here. So instead of spending stupid amounts of time dictating my thoughts on each of these topics, I thought I’d spare myself the trouble (and you the narrative) and simply post the Safari pages I’ve kept open in my phone for future Tumblr use into one of my weekly roundups. Hope you enjoy.
First, women’s rights have been a huge topic in the news lately, particularly at Mizzou (where I’m now a senior) as we conducted the second largest sorority recruitment in the nation under the strict supervision of Title IX enforcers. I’ve seen several articles about catcalling, specifically why you shouldn’t do it and what happens when women respond.
Also a more frequently curated item that depicts how media’s depiction of women has changed is addressed anew and discusses if the change is positive.
Speaking of women in the media…Beyonce. VMAs. Watch it here if you missed it, and try not to cry/scream/combust at her unbelievable talent and the example she sets as a powerful woman who almost quite literally runs the world.
On another note, four students are developing a nail polish that detects date rape drugs in drinks with a simple stir of the finger. Brilliant. Innovative. Unfortunately necessary.
An artist designs 12 pairs of shoes to represent 12 former lovers and gives a brief description of each woman/relationship. Such a creative concept.
Oh and I’ll be wearing sunscreen much more often after watching this.
And finally, there’s an Instagram account for the J Crew gingham shirt that every man between the ages of 18 and 35 owns (including my boyfriend).
That’s all, internet.
