Women should NOT be forced to feed their babies in a bathroom, all because we live in a misogynistic, porn-warped society that’s been brainwashed to believe that female breasts used for anything other than male pleasure is “indecent”. Support public breast feeding and end the porn culture.

Forever reblog

Having lived in NYC where its legal to be topless (and yes I took advantage of that fact several times.) I was curious as to why it wasn’t nation wide.

So let’s make it nation wide!

Black-headed python

The distinctive Black-headed python, Aspidites melanocephalus (Pythonidae), does indeed have a black head and neck, which contrasts strongly with the brown banding along its body. The banding is light to dark brown or orange-brown on a base that can be creamy white, light brown and occasionally even yellow (as shown in the photo).

It is a large python (up to 250 cm length), endemic to Australia, found in Northern Territory, Queensland and Western Australia.

Etymology: Aspidites means ‘shield-bearer’, referring to the large scales on the head; and melanocephalus means ’black-headed’.

The Ashanti Home Touch Hotel

I was invited to photograph the opening night of this mesmerising hotel. It was full of intriguing characters. One of which, Ama Virgin, is the subject of an article and photo series I recently did for Accent magazine.

CultureSOUL: "The Birmingham Project - Photos by Dawoud Bey, 2012

A fascinating photo series from the renown African American photographer Dawoud Bey. Most known for his street portraits, and his Harlem U.S.A series, this project was a historical undertaking to pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Birmingham Church bombing of four little girls,

Bey set out to commemorate the tragic event by photographing young Birmingham residents who were the same age as the girls when they were murdered (ages 11-14) and couple those pictures with photos of Birmingham adults (no relation) who were the ages those children would have been in 2012. It made for a bittersweet but lovely collection. Full photo series here and bio here.

A Ugandan court overturned the severe anti-gay law that, among other things, mandated a lifetime sentence for “aggravated homosexuality.”

Friday’s ruling marks a victory for gay rights activists, who have been battling the country’s homophobic laws for years. "The retrogressive anti-homosexuality act of Uganda has been struck down by the constitutional court — it’s now dead as a doornail," said Andrew Mwenda, who was part of the group petitioning against the law.

But the decision doesn’t mark a shift in the Ugandan government’s attitude towards homosexuality. According to the court, the bill — which was proposed in December of 2013 and signed into law in February — is “null and void” only because Parliament didn’t have a quorum sufficient to pass a law at the time of the vote.

This is not the first time that gay rights activists have celebrated a bittersweet victory. In January, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni temporarily blocked the bill, but only because he views homosexuality as a sickness. In a letter to the members of parliament, he wrote that gay people are “abnormal,” and could be “rescued.” He argued that the bill would be useless: “Even with legislation, they will simply go underground and continue practicing [sic] homosexuality or lesbianism for mercenary reasons.”

The repealed law, which also mandated jail time for the vague acts of “attempted homosexuality” and “promotion of homosexuality,” was watered down from an even harsher version. That one, introduced in 2009, would have doled out the death penalty for  “repeat offenders.” In every iteration, the law has dealt with the question of punishment rather than legal status. Homosexual acts have been illegal in Uganda since it was a British colony, and remain so today.

It’s not yet clear whether the Ugandan government will appeal the decision.

5,000 people are facing eviction from Venezuela’s slum tower because of big business

The roughly 5,000 residents of a massive, unfinished skyscraper in Caracas, Venezuela, called the “world’s tallest slum” or the “Tower of David” are being rapidly evicted.

Advocates report that 100 families have already been forcibly evicted from the 45-story building as of July 23, and the remainder of its population of 1,200 families is soon to follow. This comes just two months after Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s government promised to improve living conditions there.
