Am I too ____ for Lolita?

frillyroses:

Whatever you put in that blank, the answer is no.

Tall, short, fat, skinny, poor, WHATEVER problem you have that is “holding you back” from wearing Lolita—it isn’t. It’s in your mind. You can be ANYTHING and wear Lolita, and it breaks my heart to see people think that…

The ACLU of Louisiana has come to the defenseof a Rastafarian boy who has been suspended from school and forbidden to return until he cuts his dreadlocks.
The boy was sent home from South Plaquemines High School when classes resumed Aug. 8 because his dreadlocks extended beyond the collar of his shirt, in apparent violation of the school dress code.
After he returned to school the following week with his hair pinned up, school officials told the student his dreadlocks remained in violation.
Rastafarians believeLeviticus 21:5forbids them to cut their hair, and dreadlocks are central to their religious beliefs.
“The wearing of dreadlocks for (the student) is akin to the wearing of a religious icon by another student,” the ACLU said in a letter sent Monday to the Plaquemines Parish School Board.
The student’s mother provided a letter to the school superintendent from the 1st Church of Rastafar I that indicated the boy’s family were members and explained the importance of dreadlocks to their faith.
The superintendent told the teen’s mother that was not sufficient to allow the dreadlocks, and when she asked what documentation would be required, he told the mother he wasn’t a lawyer.
“We would object if the school were to tell a Christian student they could not wear a cross or if it were to permit the wearing of religious icons of one faith and prohibited those of another faith,” the civil rights group said. “In discriminating against (the student’s) religious beliefs, the school is expressing a preference for certain religions, which is unacceptable.”
Although the school has not formally suspended the student, he has missed 10 of the first 11 days of the school year over his dreadlocks.
“The actions of the school and Superintendent (Denis) Rousselle are the equivalent of an unlimited suspension,” the ACLU said.
The ACLU said the school had violated the student’s constitutional rights, as well as Louisiana’s Preservation of Religious Freedom Act.
That 2010 law imposes “strict scrutiny” on any burden of religious liberty, which in this case would force the school district to demonstrate a compelling interest in requiring the student to cut his hair.
“(The student) will be able to prove that his dreadlocks and hair length are a sincerely held religious belief of his Rastafari religion,” the ACLU said. “It is also a method of self-expression, because it communicates to others an important fact about (the student): that he is a Rastafari for whom traditional religious practices are important to him and his family. By refusing to allow him to attend school, the Board is violating (his) statutory and constitutional rights.”

Toronto’s first men’s fashion week allegedly drops collection for being “too feminine”
 by Kevin Naulls
Toronto Men’s Fashion Week (TOM) kicks off tomorrow (August 12), but the calendar will be short one designer.
Mic. Carter’s L’Uomo Strano has been pulled from the event’s roster, in a situation the designer describes as a conflict of interest. 
“I attended a fitting held by TOM on August 9. The reception by their team was positive, and the line was introduced as being avant-garde and haute couture by the event producer, Hans Koechling. I received a call from the Executive Director, Jeff Rustia, the following morning, informing me that the collection was too feminine and that it had to be re-conceived by his stylist so that it would appear to be more masculine,” Carter says of an event that allegedly took place just three days before the fashion week was set to begin.
It’s an interesting development, as it calls into question the definitions of masculinity and femininity that continue to evolve as the world investigates gendered language. 
But for Executive Director, Jeff Rustia, there appears to be no grey area in the world of gender, and any means of treading beyond traditional definitions is considered worrisome. According to Carter, “[Rustia] described the collection as ‘emasculating’ and said that he was concerned the headlines would read, ‘At Toronto’s first Men’s Fashion Week, they are presenting women’s wear?’”

A cursory glance at TOM’s official homepage corroborates this petrified man child response to a few extra pieces of flair. Facial hair, musculature, tattoos and blue steel-like attitude are the only signatures of masculinity represented in its welcome graphic, and it all reads like an erasable whiteboard at an ad agency brainstorm. There are no men in skirts, or artful representations of man as seen on runways from Yohji Yamamoto to Walter Van Beirendonck – it’s all fairly basic. While the commercial fashion world might codify its offerings, a fashion week, as far as I can tell, is meant to showcase the city’s talent. Fuck, the world has bronies for Christ’s sake. 

Whether or not a buyer or observer feels Carter is talented is subjective, but what’s clear is that the organizers were seeking out his aesthetic for the launch.

“I was approached in April by the Executive Director of TOM via Facebook. We had worked together before – I presented a piece as part of the 2013 Canada Philippines Fashion Week, which he also produced. He was very persistent with ensuring that I would participate in this Fashion Week,” Carter tells me in an E-mail.
Instead, the director allegedly abandoned his interest in the designer’s aesthetic, and began taking accessories off like some sort of Men’s Fashion Coco Chanel. “He suggested, for instance, to style the looks with army boots instead of men’s Indian kurta slippers. I asked for some time to think about it, and responded to the executive director via email articulating my concerns,” Carter says of the organization’s heavy-handed and caricatured approach to men’s fashion.

And when it came time for Carter to get the ol’ heave ho? Well, according to Carter, TOM asked the event’s stylist, Julia Gignac, to be the bearer of bad news. Because when the chips fall and there’s awful news to dispense, a man – a masculine, hearty stock – doesn’t do it himself. He sends the stylist, and she calls on the phone. Carter basically received a Post-It note. I’m sorry. I can’t. Don’t hate me.  

By August, Carter tells me he had spent a total of $8,000 to produce the looks. Now they don’t have a runway.
And to think The Guardian’s Morwenna Ferrier just said, as of Monday morning (August 11), "This coming season, expect to have your boundaries pushed, as garments, styles and models move fluidly between gender expectations."
All attempts to reach TOM organizers were not returned by press time. 
Toronto doesn’t just have a problem mayor.

Upsetting: cookie cutter men’s fashion being enforced is unappealing and, uuugh, nauseating. Sad days for fashion.

Kikunae Ikeda / 池田 菊苗 (1864-1936) was a Japanese chemist and the inventor of MSG. (To all you haters: because Chinese restaurant syndrome has been debunked.)
He was also the first scientist to realise we have five basic tastes, not four. Before his time, Western science had accepted that our tongues have receptors for the following tastes:
1. sweetness
2. sourness
3. saltiness
4. bitterness.
 In 1909, he pointed out that there was a missing taste:
5. umami, or savouriness - i.e. the proteiny taste of meat or cheese or mushrooms or eggs.
This is kind of a big deal. It’s like pointing out that we have five fingers on each hand when Western science is only counting four.
So why the hell are we still teaching schoolkids that there are only four tastes, 105 years after that’s been proven wrong? Don’t we want them to understand why bacon is delicious????

As some of you might already have guessed, I’m a fan of Japanese girl idols. One of the many, many idol groups in existence today in Japan is NMB48, a Osaka-based spin-off group of the (in)famous AKB48. NMB has a weekly show that’s surprisingly entertaining as well as educational called NMB to…
