NYFW

For spring 2016 FTL Moda teamed up with Global Disability Inclusion and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation to raise money and showcase #FashionFreeFromConfines. The runway show featured supermodels Adriana Lima and Toni Garrn alongside models with disabilities including Leslie Irby, Rebekah Marine, Shaholly Ayers and 18 year old Australian model Madeline Stuart who has down syndrome.

no amount of vegan activism will create a truly ethical & cruelty-free model of food production under capitalism. the capitalist model of food production is reliant on environmentally unsustainable practices & the abuse of human laborers, and both of those things will happen with or without the use & consumption of animal-based products

anonymous asked:

Do you think that it can ever be morally justified to test on an animal? And if not, since many scientists agree that as of now there are no alternatives, what should we do? Simply not try and find cures?

I do not believe that it is morally justified to exploit animals for human gain, regardless of the context. There are an awful lot of myths surrounding animal testing, so bare with me on this. Firstly, I think that you might be assuming that the only way treatments can be developed is through animal testing. The effective drugs on the market have been tested on animals, but it does not follow that these things have been effective because they have been tested on animals. Here in the UK for example, any new drug must be tested on at least two mammals to be considered fit for market. Now, that does not mean those drugs came about because they were tested on animals, they could be (and in many cases are) the result of much more advanced and less victorian methods of testing drugs.

It is not the case that we treat diseases by testing on animals or we don’t treat them at all. There are a wealth of alternatives like en vitro, test methods and models based on human cell and tissue cultures, computerised patient-drug databases and virtual drug trials, computer models and simulations, stem cell and genetic testing methods, non-invasive imaging techniques such as MRIs and CT Scans, and micro dosing, to name a few. There are many well respected figures in the bio-medical community who do not believe animal testing is in any way helpful anymore. We have undoubtedly gained a great deal from animal testing in the past, but people like Nobel-prize winning biologist Sir Peter Medawar pointed out that we will be at a point where we can dispense with animal research altogether in as few as ten years time, and that was in 1972.

Even ignoring ethical considerations, the animal model of research is deeply flawed, 9 out of 10 drugs that pass animal tests still go on to fail or cause harm in clinical trials on humans. UK based companies like Pharmagene use human tissue exclusively, not out of any ethical considerations, but because they believe that the animal testing model is scientifically redundant. Animals do not get many of the diseases that humans do, so these diseases must be artificially induced. This simply does not give us an accurate measure of how organically caught diseases will respond to treatment, human cell tissue gives us a much more accurate picture. To use cancer as an example, Fran Visco, founder of the National Breast Cancer Coalition said, “Animals don’t reflect the reality of cancer in humans. We cure cancer in animals all the time, but not in people.”  

As for the research methodology, it is widely accepted that animal experiments have serious limitations in that results in humans cannot be extrapolated from results in animals. A mixture of high dosage, artificial introduction of diseases and stress conditions of animals in confinement mean there are simply too many variables to gain reliable results. The cures that work on animals very often do not work in humans. Dr. Richard Klausner, former director of the US National Cancer Institute, points out that: “The history of cancer research has been the history of curing cancer in the mouse. We have cured mice of cancer for decades and it simply didn’t work in human beings.” So what do we actually gain from animal testing? Last year, globally, we killed 115 million animals in scientific experiments, yet the FDA approved only 35 new treatments. 115 million lives, for 35 new drugs? Does that sound like an efficient research model to you? 

Today’s drug companies do the actual research with computer based and stem cell models, and are simply obliged to test on animals once that process has been completed, in many cases slowing down the process rather than helping it. For every research organisation you can name me that is testing on animals, I can link you one that is having equal or superior results using non-animal models. As one researcher puts it, we don’t use animals because it is good science, we use them “because they are cheap, easy to handle and few people care what you do to them.”I think the many people are guilty of a rather obvious confirmation bias when it comes to animal testing, including scientists. They assume because animal research has been done, that animal research is the only way it could have possibly done, with very little possible evidence to back up that claim. Animal testing is inefficient, expensive, out of date and utterly unethical. 

On a personal level, I absolutely do not believe that animal lives have any less inherent value than human lives. People may believe it is perfectly okay for 115 million animals to suffer every year so long as it benefits humans, but we do not have to look very far into our own human history to see truly terrible examples of this cold, utilitarian idea in which it is acceptable for a minority to suffer for the good of the majority. The idea that some lives matter less than others has been responsible for some of the most horrific injustices in human history, and I do not believe this is an ethos that any serious thinker should entertain. I think that at this point, the only thing we still have to learn from animal testing is the depths of cruelty that humans are willing to inflict on sentient beings for our own gain.

I think maybe Akito wished that she could be like Tohru. Tohru had everything that she was trying so hard to keep. But not to just have everyone’s affection, but to earn it and really care about people like she does. I see this especially when she tried to grab Tohru’s hand and went to see Kureno in the hospital. I think this because I really empathize with akito, and that’s what I’ve wanted for a very long time, Tohru was always my role model. I aspired to be her and I think maybe Akito felt the same way.

I want to suggest that there is a more essential experience that you owe yourselves, one which courses in women’s studies can greatly enrich, but which finally depends on you in all your interactions with yourself and your world. This is the experience of taking responsibility toward yourselves. Our upbringing as women has so often told us that this should come second to our relationships and responsibilities to other people. We have been offered ethical models of the self-denying wife and mother; intellectual models of the brilliant but slapdash dilettante who never commits herself to anything the whole way, or the intelligent woman who denies her intelligence in order to seem more “feminine,” or who sits in passive silence even when she disagrees inwardly with everything that is being said around her.

Responsibility to yourself means refusing to let others do your thinking, talking, and naming for you; it means learning to respect and use your own brains and instincts; hence, grappling with hard work. It means that you do not treat your body as a commodity with which to purchase superficial intimacy or economic security; for our bodies to be treated as objects, our minds are in mortal danger. It means insisting that those to whom you give your friendship and love are able to respect your mind. It means being able to say, with Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre: “I have an inward treasure born with me, which can keep me alive if all the extraneous delights should be withheld or offered only at a price I cannot afford to give.”

Responsibility to yourself means that you don’t fall for shallow and easy solutions—predigested books and ideas, weekend encounters guaranteed to change your life, taking “gut” courses instead of ones you know will challenge you, bluffing at school and life instead of doing solid work, marrying early as an escape from real decisions, getting pregnant as an evasion of already existing problems. It means that you refuse to sell your talents and aspirations short, simply to avoid conflict and confrontation. And this, in turn, means resisting the forces in society which say that women should be nice, play safe, have low professional expectations, drown in love and forget about work, live through others, and stay in the places assigned to us. It means that we insist on a life of meaningful work, insist that work be as meaningful as love and friendship in our lives. It means, therefore, the courage to be “different”; not to be continuously available to others when we need time for ourselves and our work; to be able to demand of others—parents, friends, roommates, teachers, lovers, husbands, children—that they respect our sense of purpose and our integrity as persons.

The difference between a life lived actively, and a life of passive drifting and dispersal of energies, is an immense difference. Once we begin to feel committed to our lives, responsible to ourselves, we can never again be satisfied with the old, passive way.

David Letterman Eulogizes His Mother Dorothy Mengering

David Letterman honored his mother, Dorothy Mengering, with a eulogy on Saturday at her funeral in Indianapolis. The Indianapolis Star reports he shared a story of Mengering seeing a snake in her garden, going to get a hoe and returning to chop off its head.

“My mother is Grizzly Adams for God’s sake,” Letterman said.

Mengering was a correspondent on her son’s show, baking mystery desserts for “Guess Mom’s Pies” and covering three Winter Olympics. She passed away at her home last Tuesday at the age of 95.

Letterman said he remembers Late Show executives saying, “We should have your mother on the show all the time.” They added, “People like her better than you.”

The former late-night host said his work ethic is modeled after his mother, whom he said was always busy. “We didn’t want for anything because of my mom,” said Letterman.

The eldest of three children, Dorothy Hofert was born on July 18, 1921, in Linton, Indiana. She studied at Indiana University, and in 1942, she married Harry Joseph Letterman, who had a florist shop. He died of a heart attack in 1973. (Dave’s son, Harry, is named after him.)

Ten years later, she wed Hans P. Mengering, a retired structural engineer for an Indianapolis architectural firm. The World War II veteran died in March 2013.

What is relationship anarchy?

The Thinking Asexual defines relationship anarchy as such:

relationship anarchy – This is a relationship philosophy which goes one step further than polyamory and generally dismisses any preconceived ideas about relationship structures, drawing clear lines of separation between “friendship” and “romantic-sexual relationships,” relationship hierarchy, or categorizing relationships according to their behavioral and/or emotional qualities. Relationship anarchy rejects monogamy and the idea of love being finite or limited, in the same way that polyamory rejects that paradigm. Relationship anarchy, however, seeks to dissolve rigid emotional distinctions between sexual and nonsexual relationships, romantic love and friendship, in a way that polyamory usually does not. Relationship anarchy rejects emotional hierarchies of relationships: both the ranking of one romantic-sexual relationship over another and the ranking of romantic-sexual relationships over nonsexual and/or nonromantic relationships.

You can read more at the Relationship Anarchy Manifesto.

To me, relationship anarchy is about consent and explicit negotiation. Not just consent in sexual relationships, but consent in the boundaries of the relationship itself. When I have a relationship with someone, even if they don’t identify as a relationship anarchist, I make sure to ask them exactly what they expect out of the relationship, how they experience attraction and affection, and what kind of boundaries they want to set. And further, it is an open and evolving process of negotiation, so I often check in to make sure everyone is happy with where the relationship is. I think everyone can practice this as relationship anarchy about treating others ethically and with respect and acceptance. My relationship with Rel has been hugely enriched since we began to negotiate our relationship on these terms. Further, it adds a new layer of depth and consideration to each and every relationship I hold, whether or not you would call that relationship a “friendship”, a “romance”, a sexual partnership, or whatever. To me i don’t have different categories of relationships that mediate my experience of other people, but rather, I experience people directly. Like all anarchy, relationship anarchy isn’t about being against structures; rather, structures of relationship (like boundaries and labels, for example) are explicitly negotiated and consented to.

To me, my coming to relationship anarchy has to do with my romantic orientation, which makes it difficult for me to distinguish between different kinds of affection. However, I also consider it an excellent model for ethical relationships in general, and I encourage all people to take these principles to heart whether or not they choose to identify as a relationship anarchist. To me it’s more about what you do, and the most important thing to do is respect others and their boundaries.

I hope this helps,

-Z

This poses a practical and ethical challenge in non-model organisms, such as humans, who are not amenable to the type of experimentation required.

modelling au for jiguk^^ (u can choose which way etc dont feel compelled to conform to anything!)

Yet again, so much more I wanted to write for this jikook model au! I hope you like it~ (thank you bby @confidenceatitsfinest)

+ Jungkook is an up and coming rookie model who just got signed to the same agency as Park Jimin

+ He didn’t expect to meet Park Jimin so early on in his job, but his manager wanted him to see a professional at work

+ He takes him to one of Jimin’s photoshoots and the moment he get there, he is completely enthralled. The man was gorgeous, sure, but what really caught Jungkook’s attention was his work ethic.


+ The model would listen attentively to the photographer and do everything he asks of him. He took his job very seriously. But the second the cameras turn off, his demeanor changes and he puts on a beaming smile

+ When Jimin notices him and their manager, he walks over and Jungkook immediately turns to his shy self having a top model who is on every bill board before him @confidenceatitsfinest

+ He stutters out an introduction and mentally bashes himself for sounding stupid, But Jimin is known for being super nice to the rookie models and he’s the same way with Jungkook. Jungkook thinks Jimin is like the perfect human being. @confidenceatitsfinest

+ After some months of training with Jimin and other various hired professionals, Jungkook starts his first photoshoot for a men’s fragrance ad

+ Jimin decides to sit in on this photoshoot because his schedule was free that day and he had helped a little with Jungkook’s training

+ A bit nervous, jungkook seemed to be struggling, not quite doing exactly what the photographer wanted, especially with his head angles

+ Jungkook doesn’t expect jimin to walk on set and take his face in his hands, angling his head where the photographer wanted

+ Jimin’s touch is surprisingly gentle and Jungkook is momentarily frozen in shock.

“Stay still, right there.” And why the heck does Jimin sound like he’s constantly fucked out??? @confidenceatitsfinest

+ “You’re doing just fine, it’s only your first photoshoot so don’t get too hung up. Now look into the lens of that camera like you own it.” Jungkook could only nod with wide eyes.

+ The photoshoot goes extremely well and Jungkook begins to get more jobs just from this simple ad

+ Jimin and Jungkook start hanging out more, to Jungkook’s surprise. ‘sunbae’ turns into ‘hyung’ ; “You know you can call me hyung now, right?” “O-of course su—I mean hyung.” Jimin chuckles

+ Jungkook’s rise to fame ends up being quicker than expected and he starts doing photoshoots with Jimin

+ One day they are left at the studio, alone after everyone had gone home. Jungkook is surprised when he hears Jimin say: ‘Get behind the camera, I want to take pictures of you.”

+ “Hyung, but you’re a model, not the photographer.” “Doesn’t matter. It doesn’t take a professional to capture a moment.”

+ Jimin starts off by taking pictures from far away, but he gradually gets closer, and Jungkook doesn’t notice it at first until he’s a foot away from him

+ “Aren’t you close enough, hyung?” Jimin looks at the camera with confusion, turning it as if it was broken. “Huh, funny.” Jungkook gives him a questioning look. "What’s wrong?”

+ “It seems like no camera is able to capture how beautiful you really are.”

+ Jungkook is in so much shock that he doesn’t know what to say. So instead, he leans in without thought, and captures Jimin’s lips between his own.

+ They start dating. And at first they try to hide it, but it isn’t long before their manager catches them in the break room one day. But he’s some what okay with it, because, well, publicity.

+ Their relationship makes them even more well known, they go along with it because its a win-win situation. The people deem them the ‘best looking celebrity couple’

+ They talk to their manager and firmly state that they don’t want their relationship exploited. and they wont go on staged dates or anything like that.

+ Because some may say models are plastic, but their relationship was as real as it could get.

Gossip Girl: Blair Waldorf [ESFJ]

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): find ways to take care of others, make them comfortable, and put them at ease. Comfortable in a wide range of social situations. Stand as a worthy ethical role model for others. Value fairness and form intimate connections with many to meet their needs. Desire a sense of togetherness. Recognize and adhere to shared values, feelings, and social norms to create harmony. Feel an intimate oneness with others and comfortably disclose feelings, values, and issues. Warmly offer praise and respect and enjoy the support of others. Offer many chances to make amends.

Introverted Sensing (Si): build on prior knowledge and experience to ensure success. Notice if something doesn’t match what is expected. Recall detailed data to support their decisions. Recognize familiar elements so they can act quickly. Trust common experiences and feel energized by participating in traditions to solidify the group or family. Follow others’ successful endeavors when trying something new. Reviewing the past to draw on the lessons of history, hindsight, and experience to feel a sense of security about the future.

Extroverted Intuition (Ne): enjoy spending time exploring new ideas or hidden meanings. Engage in conversations where potential possibilities are explored. The desire to connect the details of their wealth of data and experiences. Desire to learn about the unknown and hone their skills. Tendency toward being naïve at times.

Introverted Thinking (Ti): desire to objectively understand and appreciate others, but blindsided by an emotional disconnect. Detached analysis looks like heartlessness. Aspire to get things right by accurately understanding and applying principles to everyday interactions (often through extensive research).

Blair Waldorf goes from being the “queen bee” in her high school to wanting to be the toast of New York society as a fashion designer. She cares very much about what other people think about her, and expresses her emotions openly. Unfortunately, Blair can also be quite cruel to others; she understands their emotions and both how to appeal to them to get what she wants and how to hurt them (Fe). Blair is traditional. At first, she merely wants to fulfill her family’s expectations of her and marry Nate. Later, she maintains the traditions of the school and tries to walk in her mother’s footsteps. Movies help shape her dreams – she models herself after bygone heroines like Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn, and struggles to want to change herself or her life – in her mid-twenties, she’s still wearing headbands and clinging to old social rules (Si).

Her creativity comes in handy both for business and manipulating situations to her advantage; Blair is able to connect her own experiences with new ideas and find ways to recover from bad situations (Ne). She can be a little overly romantic and naïve when dealing with others. She trusts her emotional connection to people and charm to get her through problems, but is able to step back and think critically about people and situations. But doing so is always to support either her concern for them or her desire to use them in some way (inferior Ti).

I wonder why vegan tumblr is so quiet on the matter of animal testing, re: ebola vaccine? It just shows how great that we have all these at the hand of scientists. There was a very preliminary vaccine that was still not in the clinical trial phase AND it saved lives. With ongoing research, Pfizer hopes to put it on the mass market next year. So please do explain in lights of the horror that is happening in West Africa, how is it that you value mice's lives over humans'?

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this.

I am not quite sure what this “silence” is that you attribute to tumblr vegans… I can’t speak for anyone else in the community but for me personally there has been very little information released about the vaccine in its early stages and I dislike commenting on things without a good amount of information. For that reason I’m mostly going to talk about animal testing more generally here.

Margaery Tyrell is driven to take care of the people of King’s Landing. She has an extraordinary ability to connect to and bring a sense of unity between them and herself, which contributes to her immense popularity. She judges no one and even tries to make Renly comfortable by reassuring him that his preferences do not matter to her, and she will concede to whatever makes him happy. Margaery knows how to appeal to the emotions of her intended, and uses different tactics with each of them (Fe). She even feels sorry for the awful manner of Joffrey’s death. Margaery is impatient in her desire for the throne. Her desires are all based in the present; she can quickly adapt to any situation, but falls back on methods others have used in the past to great success (feeding the poor, taking and trusting her grandmother’s advice) (Si).

She knows how to read others and appeal to their desires (Fe-Ne). Margaery is intrigued by new ideas but also somewhat naive in her approach to problem solving; her dreams about liberating and protecting Sansa through marriage to her brother are fanciful and unrealistic (Ne). She tries to give others the benefit of the doubt, but relies more on her grandmother’s advice than her own logical instincts to solve bad situations (inferior Ti).
