  1. Joss Whedon’s address was pure gold, he NAILED it!

    And once again, Annabel Crabb proved she is not just an amazing political journalist, she’s the best kind of columnist too. Oh to be her…

    What an excellent round up of links, I’m gonna have to be a regular here. đŸ™‚

  2. After reading the article ‘Make up or not…..’ I began to wonder if women in this industry are subject to even further cosmetic enhancements than what the men are. Botox for example and the multitude of other cosmetic procedures targeting women.

    • Good point, we know that women in the pornography industry undergo all sorts of strange cosmetic procedures such as anal bleaching in order to fit into a false ideal. I’m sure women in the beauty and fashion industry also have procedures that men (or women in the rest of the world) don’t.
