  • For Some Chinese Uighurs, Modeling Is A Path To Success

    NPR ^ | 2017 | Rob Schmitz
    Speaking to a foreign journalist is usually a stressful endeavor for a Uighur in China. Uighurs belong to a Muslim ethnic minority and speak a language closer to Turkish than Chinese. These differences from China's dominant ethnicity, the Han, have been at the root of a tense and sometimes violent relationship between Uighurs and China's government. But there's another difference many Uighurs possess that the rest of China is attracted to: their appearance. With their looks, they can easily flow through cultures," says Liu. "They can play multiple roles. If you need to cast a foreigner in a movie, they...

    "...When I was about seven, I had been fawning over a boxed set of Barbie dolls. It was called The Heart Family and included a mom doll, a dad doll, and two children. This perfect nuclear family was only sold in sets of white dolls or black dolls. I don't remember coveting one over the other, I just wanted one. On Christmas morning, swathed in glitter-flecked wrapping paper, there I found my Heart Family: a black mom doll, a white dad doll, and a child in each colour. My dad had taken the sets apart and customised my family." "...Fast-forward...

    Popular U.S. comedian and host of the top rating 'The Daily Show' Trevor Noah has come under fire for a comedy routine where he called Aboriginal women unattractive. Footage of his stand-up show, from 2013, emerged ahead of his Australian tour, which starts in Melbourne next month. 'All women of every race can be beautiful,' Noah tells an audience in the footage which emerged online overnight. 'And I know some of you are sitting there now going, 'Oh Trevor, yeah, but I've never seen a beautiful Aborigine', he jokes.

    As many of you know, my post Men Prefer Debt-Free Virgins Without Tattoos went viral and is causing quite a stir. I should have definitely titled it “Godly Men Prefer Debt-Free Virgins Without Tattoos.” I want to make clear that the audience I teach are those young women who want to learn biblical womanhood as according to God’s instructions in Titus 2:3-5. They love the Lord and His beautiful ways.

    A blonde heard that bathing in milk would make her beautiful. She left a note for her milkman to leave 25 gallons of milk. When the milkman read the note, he felt there must be a mistake. He thought she probably meant 2.5 gallons. So he knocked on the door to clarify the point. The blonde came to the door and the milkman said, "I found your note asking me to leave 25 gallons of milk. Did you mean 2.5 gallons?" The blonde said, "No, I want 25 gallons. I'm going to fill my bathtub up with milk and take...

    Spain has selected a beauty queen for 2018 – and it's a man in disguise!  That's right: Spanish people think a man looks prettier than all the women in Spain!  What does this say about the Spanish culture? After winning Spain's national beauty contest last month, [Mr.] Ponce will become the first transgender woman [sic] to compete in the Miss Universe pageant. "Having a vagina doesn't make a woman," [he] said in an interview.  "Even if many people don't want to see me as a woman, I clearly belong among them.  There are women with a penis and men with a vagina, because...

    With more millions than she and her Oscar-winning husband Michael Douglas can spend and more homes than they could ever live in, actress Catherine Zeta-Jones says she’s “sick” of apologizing for being filthy rich. “One thing I’m not is humble anymore. I’m sick of being humble. I really am,” Zeta-Jones said in an interview with British the newspaper The Daily Mirror. “So sorry I’m rich, so sorry I’m married to a movie star, so sorry I’m not so bad looking.”“No sorrys. Enough. All that is important to me now is my work,” the Feud star continued. “[The] rest of...

    In a related story, the Miss America Pageant will not be broadcast this year due to a total lack of viewers and sponsors. Joke aside, after turning America’s campuses into leftist indoctrination centers and Hollywood into a hard-core propaganda machine for cultural marxism, now it’s Miss America pageant’s turn to get slapped over the head and benefit from a reeducation session, courtesy of our unhinged leftists who want to control every aspect of our lives, rewrite history as they see fit and dictate the moral imperative of the day with impunity. Yes, I am triggered, and that’s because my favorite...

    RIP Beauty. It’s over, kaput, finished, dead. Today’s announcement that Miss America will no longer be based on actual beauty is the final radical feminist nail in the coffin of the once much beloved practice of admiring a woman for how she looks. Instead, we are now apparently going to tune in to appreciate the contestants’ INNER beauty – their intelligence, their philosophy on life and their thoughts on charitable work.

    Keziah Daum, an 18-year-old from Utah in the United States, who has no Chinese roots, was accused of “cultural appropriation” after posting photographs on Twitter that featured her in a traditional Chinese qipao, or cheongsam. The dress symbolised a silent protest to promote gender equality after the fall of the dynasties and the beginning of the republican period in the early 1900s, and was worn during the 1919 reformist May Fourth Movement.

    President Trump recently advocated that more immigrants from Norway be welcomed. His inclusiveness was met by vitriol and Norwayphobia from the bigoted Fake News Media.I stand with President Trump, and propose that all beautiful Norwegian women be given instant citizenship. Of course, that may be merited for beautiful women of other countries too. If you want to suggest other countries that have beautiful women to whom this policy should be applied, please do so in the comments below, following the rule that your case needs to be made with one or more pictures.

    <p>Nowhere is the gendered double standard more apparent than in the Miss Universe competition.</p> <p>While women in all industries face professional hurdles, pageants are one of the only workplaces where they are required to wear ball gowns while doing so. In this annual competition, women are expected to be gorgeous, intelligent, and poised; to look good in a bikini, ace a question-and-answer segment, represent their entire nation and walk perfectly in high heels. Meanwhile Steve Harvey, the reigning male host, automatically exceeds expectations if he manages to read out the correct winner (and was somehow rehired after fucking up his one and only job).</p>

    Dressing children up as Disney's Moana this Halloween is racist, according to one parenting blogger. While parents should also think twice about letting their brood dress up as Elsa from Frozen because her character promotes 'white beauty'. Writing in her popular blog Raising Race Conscious Children, parent blogger activist Sachi Feris urged parents not to dress their children up as characters from backgrounds different to their own as it is 'cultural appropriation.'  Although many would see the strong-minded Moana as a perfect role model for their child, Feris said it's racially insensitive and risks parodying Polynesian culture.

Miss America 2017, Savvy Shields, former Miss Arkansas, placed the crown on the 23-year-old teary-eyed successor's head as the new Miss America accepted applause and cheers from the audience and judges. Miss North Dakota emerged victorious through a series of swimsuit and talent contests, onstage speeches and two rounds of interviews by judges. In one of her onstage interviews, Mund said President Trump, a Republican, was wrong to withdraw the U.S. from the climate accord aimed at reducing greenhouse gas...
