Today, Sesame Workshop launches its newest initiative, Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration. This bilingual (English/Spanish) multimedia outreach initiative provides much-needed resources to support and comfort young children (ages 3–8) throughout their parents’ incarceration. Go to http://www.sesamestreet.org/incarceration for more information and project resources.
This makes me so sad. I’m glad this need is recognised.
Sesame Street, being awesome since forever.
in a nation where jailing people is a large part of what holds up the creaking economy, this is not only a compassionate move, but a sensible and prescient one.

For those who don’t know, Johina is the daughter of Shaker Aamer, a Saudi Arabian citizen who was living in Britain at the time of his arrest. The evidence for the arrest (that he participated in the Battle of Tora Bora) in question is based on evidence received from questionable sources through torture procedures. The Bush administration even admitted later that their evidence was weak. He never was officially charged for any wrongdoing and never had a trial. He was detained in Guantánamo Bay Prison in 2001 and was cleared for release TWICE in 2007 and 2009 BUT STILL REMAINS IN GITMO. His mental and physical health have been declining over the years he has spent at GITMO, and he is currently participating in a hunger strike with many other prisoners to protest their wrongful detention. He has lost 40% of his body weight because of this. Government, if there was a time where you could actually get your shit together and do something right, now would be the time.
Kelly Rowland has revealed that her former Destiny’s Child bandmates Beyoncé and Michelle Williams wrote a track as a plea to make her escape an abusive relationship.
The singer talks about the turbulent relationship in her new single ‘Dirty Laundry’, but has confirmed that Destiny’s Child’s 2005 single ‘Girl’ was the original call for help.
“I don’t know how people connect dots with music and artists that they have followed for so long but when I saw people on Twitter starting to put all the pieces together, it was so interesting,” Rowland told Philadelphia’s Hot 107.9 Morning Show. ”They did it with ‘Girl’, they did it with ‘Bad Habit’… I was like, okay! Crazy!”
‘Girl’ hears Beyoncé sing: “Take a minute girl, come sit down/ And tell us what’s been happening/ In your face I can see the pain/ Don’t try and convince us you’re happy.”
Asked if she became emotional when she first heard ‘Girl’, Rowland confessed: “Of course, I did! The girls wrote it for me. ”Destiny’s Child is deeper than what people see on the surface. Those are my homies for life. For life! Those girls, we stuck with each other - period.”
Rowland’s new album Talk A Good Game will be released in the UK on June 17 and a day later in the US.

Body Positive Selfie Series #2:
So last summer I went to to Hawaii with my family. I spent the entire summer daydreaming about wearing a sexy swimsuit and strutting up and down the beaches of Maui, as it would be my first time going. But when I got there, I hid under a cover-up for the majority of the trip, afraid of my body. I didn’t want to be judged for each stretch mark, each bump, each un-flat surface that people would see. Today’s goal was to take a photo of myself in the same attire, finding ways to rejoice in my beauty when I couldn’t only one year ago. Not gonna lie, I kind of love these <3.
ya! so pretty :)
Ugh, the Tumblrdotcom dilemma; I love following extreme porn blogs and for the most part, I can understand (not even agree with sometimes, but understand) where they’re coming from and their kinks. But the minute they try and equate ‘consensual sex’ to ‘vanilla sex’, welp that merits an instant unfollowing, regardless of how good their content is.
Sigh. I’ma miss them on my dash.
