While all this is happening, the Pacific Ocean is being contaminated by not just trash, but Radiation.
There was a leak in the Fukushima power plant that has now poisoned the entire Pacific Ocean.
Some think that oh, maybe it will go away with time. Sure, it will, in about 16 million years. Yes, you read that right. Due to the long half life of iodine-129, the whole ecosystem of the Pacific Coast will be contaminated pretty much forever.
Here is the radiation levels in the ocean.

In an article for Take Part, writers Holly Eagleson and Lauren Wade retouched controversial advertisements by replacing women models with men. In doing so, Eagleson and Wade hoped to highlight the pervasiveness of sexual objectification of women. For example, they decided to remake American Apparel advertisements to draw attention to former CEO Dov Charney’s abuse and mistreatment of female employees, as well as to photographer Terry Richardson’s record of harassing and assaulting women.
“Charney and Richardson are really representative of a specific form of sexism and objectification in media today,” Wade told Huffington Post in an email. “Their collaborations, in particular for American Apparel, depict women in sexually vulnerable, pornographic positions where a lot of the model’s facial expressions look like they’ve been drugged or they’re drunk. These images are predatory. They depict women being taken advantage of and it’s supposed to look “sexy” and sell sweatshirts?”
*these images are predatory and objectify women*
But Wait! I hear you cry!
Those are all adverts for mens underwear! That doesn’t count! Ok, let’s have a look for some of American Apparel’s non-underwear adverts!

You are equating scantily clad female models as “objectification of women” yet failing to notice that most fashion industries treat male models the exact same way.
It is intellectually dishonest to equate the use of scantily clad models to rape and sexual assault. How can you argue against “she was wearing a short skirt so she must have wanted it” yet create a link between rape and scantily clad female models in the fashion industry?
What does that say about all the female designers and gay male fashion designers who use scantily clad models of both sexes, including the sexes they are attracted to in their shoots?
I bet male models are paid less, too.
Goodness, would ya look at that. [source]
I think she was wearing these the last time I got a hand job
