Category: Take Action: It’s your DEEDS not your duds!
FEATURED SHERO: Julia Garcia for her incredible artistry and powerful message.
“While always open to individual interpretation, the intention I had with this painting was very specific. It is the first in a body of work using animal iconography and the human form to comment on society’s warped ideals concerning physical beauty, and the ways in which we contort ourselves in pursuit of it.” -Julia (acrylic on linen, 30″x40″)
There are many ways that you can affect change in your world. Remember that you hold great power with your ability to vote with your dollars and this will go a long way toward making you a leader in affecting change. Here are a few suggestions:
Complaining about the problem is no longer enough — we have to stand-up and take action now!
The truth the plastic surgeon is keeping from you when you get botox or any injection for facial muscle relaxant to have less wrinkles or lines is that a large number of animals are killed for EACH batch of BOTOX made for you!!! The technical term is LD50 = lethal dose 50%. Meaning the drug batch can be allowed for use on humans only once no more than 50% of the animals die from it!!!!!
Humanity over Vanity!
What they should legally have to tell your vanity is this “Here is your box of dead bunnies — congratulations you have a less wrinkles for 3 months. Come back and we’ll kill a bunch of kittens for your face.”
In 2010 the Humane Society stepped in and demanded the companies manufacturing Botox stop the practice of LD50. Some are working towards this request. Still millions of animals have been killed in the past decade so women can have less wrinkles. Other popular drugs on the market have yet to comply or make an effort to stop LD50. PLEASE get used to lines — we have to draw them to keep our humanity. It’s more valuable and attractive then your vanity.
