"Furthermore, Mr. Armato's attempts to equate the Shape-ups for Girls product with the First Lady's Let's Move campaign are both insulting and ill-fitting. Michelle Obama's predominant focus is on educating children about nutrition and promoting exercise, whereas the Skechers Shape-ups for Girls neither promote exercise, burn extra calories, or educate children on the necessity of proper nutrition. Even more disturbing is that Shape-ups for Girls are not marketed as Shape-ups for Children, but only for girls. The Let's Move campaign does not solely target girls. And unless Skechers has new information that suggests young boys are immune to obesity, this product and marketing campaign are simply the latest and youngest in an age-old technique of building an industry off of insecurity and exaggerated claims to endow the consumer with conventional beauty and acceptance."

"When I wear an ao dai as a steampunk, I think about it as being more than a costume or a cosplay. My outfits become a representation of myself: Vietnamese and American and steampunk.
Time is treated by steampunks with a Doctor Whovian “wibbly-wobbly” sensibility: the future lies in the past and exists in the present. Steampunk clothes represent how our imagined histories are based on real history, and whatever steampunk fantasy we construct for ourselves can have a basis in who we are and where we fit in the world. When you see me, you can see a story, part fantasy, part reality. This is the story I give to you. When steampunks dress up, they engage in this performance of identity; when you see us, you see the stories we tell each other.
Because sometimes the most interesting way to present your steampunk self is with nothing but the clothes on your back."

"In a news conference immediately following, Boudlal said she was told to take off her hijab, the head scarf some Muslim women wear, or work in a position in what the resort terms "backstage."
"Boudlal refused and walked out of the hotel, again flanked by media and community members, who briefly began chanting.
“'I’ve been sent home,' she said. 'I thought maybe today is my lucky day because I have my friends, my supporters.'"

"First, it must be mentioned that if this is in fact a move in support of the natural beauty of women, it is the 'natural' white female that is celebrated. There is a glaring lack of diversity on the company's site and in ads. Sure, sure, there are a few sprinklings of brown about, but more often than not the representations are quite fair and with "that good hair." Many of the girls look multiracial and while I am fully in support of this (as a multiracial woman myself), there is a definite avoidance in AA ads of anything that can be solidly identified as plain ol' Black. The lighter the skin, the nicer the hair— the better."

"Racial and gender equality mean an equal opportunity to act a fool on the international stage. But that belies a larger question.. Do Black girls have the option of being “different.” Whimsical. Creative. Are our bodies only allowed to be shoved into some sexual context anytime they are displayed? To some people what Venus Williams wore on the first day of the French Open was obscene. I was ready to hop on the bandwagon with you. Until I actually looked at other pictures of the “outfit” and quite frankly its more odd than obscene in fact when viewed inlight of the apparel for both men and women across all sports, its rather boring. "

"But the strongest trend in swimwear this season may be a look best described as tribal, seemingly inspired by the animal prints, raffia, ikat (a method of weaving that is reminiscent of tie-dye) and ethnic style embroidery seen on the runway at Dries Van Noten, Von Furstenberg and Catherine Malandrino."

"'I really feel disgusted when I see something like that,' said Gabriel Dufault, president of the Franco-Métis Association in Manitoba. "It's obviously the work of one with a troubled mind.
"'It's racist in nature and I don't see any humour in this at all.'
"Riel was a former MP and leader of the Métis people, and is considered the founder of the province of Manitoba."

"But now a Jewish D.J. in Brooklyn finds himself defending his right to market what he calls an 'Israeli remix of the keffiyeh,' featuring the Star of David.
"An article last week in the Abu Dhabi newspaper The National compared the effort by Jewish hipsters like Erez Safar to claim the keffiyeh for themselves as just the latest in a series of battles over symbols of Middle Eastern culture whose appropriation by Israelis has enraged Arabs."
