Tweet By Tweet, Female Representation Is Being Redefined

Tweet By Tweet, Female Representation Is Being Redefined

Across every media institutional platform we are exposed to sexualized images of women. Not men, just women. You never see adverts showing men eating burgers in a thong on all fours or with legs spread to advertise that a store is ‘now open’. Male singers wear clothes, female singers wear very little while shaking their bums in front of a camera. You get the picture. But shouting above this image is the growing voice of a gender that’s misrepresented. Media institutions that have long had the stronghold are being undermined by one of their own; the internet.

Our purpose is tied to the atomic disaster that continues to threaten life on Earth. If we are to have an economic, ecological or biological future on this planet, all atomic reactor construction must halt, and all operating reactors must be phased out as fast as possible. To honor this vision, we won’t eat from dawn to dusk on March 11. It’s a small, symbolic step. But one we feel is worth taking.

Worldwide Web of Lies: Who Is Telling the Truth?

David Hawkins’ research on kinesiology reveals there is a part of your being that knows how much of the nightly news is accurate, to what degree a political or spiritual leader is speaking with integrity, and whether a family pet really did eat your student’s homework last night. Muscle testing can be used to make better decisions, gauge whether someone is lying, and even purchase foods and supplements that are optimal for your body. In a worldwide web of propaganda and lies, it’s a powerful practice to cultivate.

So start with Meat-Free Monday and then try Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. And dont forget to tell your friends and family!
