Sixty

I am not a feminist or a woman for that matter, but this post struck a chord, and the song must be played.

The other day, photos of North West screaming in the front row at fashion week were shared online. It’s interesting to me how people assume that individuals in the public eye are also sensible, wise people who think before they act. There might have been three reasons that North West was brought to the shows:

  1. Her father believes that exposing her to fashion at an early age will turn her into a legendary fashion designer.
  2. He wants to train her early, as he has already created a legacy to pass down to her.
  3. Her mother, after reading a lot of nasty comments about herself on Dlisted, Radar Online and Celebitchy, understands that her daughter is the only one of the three that will get positive attention, and is sort of using her as a human shield.

Save The Internet

There is trouble brewing for all of us internet users. I will ask you to urge the FCC to reclassify the Internet as a “common carrier” under Title II of the Telecommunications Act. That would protect “net neutrality” and ensure basic consumer protections for Internet service.

The big cable and telecom companies are leading the fight to completely deregulate Internet service. These companies want to squash competition, water down consumer protections, discriminate against certain web traffic, and spark higher rates and slower speeds for everyday consumers like us.

Consumers need the FCC to take a stand against these giants. Please, protect net neutrality and fight for the free and open Internet. Please, forward the petition to your friends so they can fight for the open Internet, too!
