Seventeen Magazine isn’t going to airbrush its models anymore.
So, this is cute, right?
WASHINGTON — Seventeen magazine, responding to a gutsy high school student’s petition, is pledging to feature only real, unaltered images of girls in its pages, social action platform Change.org said Tuesday.
“We vow to never change girls’ body or face shapes (never have, never will),” the guidelines said, although Seventeen will still tweak photos in order to smooth folds on garments or get rid of flyaway hair.

When some girl looks at Random Famous White Girl on the cover and thinks “She’s so pretty; I’m so ugly; I hate myself” she can at least say “I bet there’s a shit ton of Photoshop going on.”
Nice job taking that away from all the uglies, Seventeen. You might as well just send out gift certificates to Eating Disorders R Us.

That white dude who got hired at Essence just got fired for being a racist.
I mean…well damn.
White People, what is you doing?!? No I’m forreal. I am just physically tired of this racial foolishness in the news everyday this month. Did April suddenly become National Show-Your-Inner-Bigot Month and nobody told me?
That is all THIS MONTH. Can everybody just calm down, have some sweet tea, and take a Race Break for the rest of April? I just want 3 days to go by where I don’t feel like white people have up and LOST every last bit of good sense.
But that starts tomorrow. Let’s go ahead and get into this Essence foolishness real fast.
