Today one of my friends was dress coded for her bra strap showing and so she wrote on the gym shirt that they gave her. It reads “Dress Code: promotes the objectification and sexualization of young bodies, blames the wearer for the onlooker’s perceptions/actions, perpetuates rape culture, and is bullshit” On the back she wrote “You can’t shame me for something I’m not ashamed for”. It was really cool seeing all of the people’s reactions who saw it and I thought what she did was pretty cool.

YES YOUNG WOMEN STANDING UP FOR THEMSELVES
ENDLESS APPLAUSE

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

Why the world should care about Ebola in one chart

The United States announced Tuesday it will send 3,000 troops to help tackle West Africa’s Ebola outbreak as part of a new initiative to combat the spread of the disease. Reuters reports that the new plan to combat the disease, which has killed more than 2,500, includes a “major deployment” in Liberia, building 17 new treatment centers, training thousands of healthcare workers and establishing a “military control center for coordination.”
The announcement couldn’t come soon enough. Despite the international community’s best efforts, Ebola may continue to spread out of control. According to alarming new research published in Eurosurveillance, the peer-reviewed publication of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (the EU’s version of the Centers for Disease Control), the world could face 77,181 to 277,124 cases by the end of 2014.
