”This is my favorite photo in the world - me and Linus, born to a dairy cow and ordered to be killed when the farmer saw he was a male (and thus useless in the dairy industry). A compassionate individual intervened, and he was brought to a sanctuary. I met him when he was a few days old and 60 pounds, and he would always try to sit on my lap. Today, 7 years young and 1500 pounds, he still tries to sit on my lap.” - Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
“A young woman was restrained, force-fed and injected with cosmetics in a high street shop window as part of a hard-hitting protest against animal testing.
Jacqueline Traide was tortured in front of hundreds of horrified shoppers in a bid to raise awareness and end the practise.
The 24-year-old endured 10 hours of experiments, which included having her hair shaved and irritants squirted in her eyes, as part of a worldwide campaign by Lush Cosmetics and The Humane Society.
The disturbing stunt took place in Lush’s Regent Street store, one of the UK’s busiest shopping streets.
Jacqueline appeared genuinely terrified as she was pinned down on a bench and had her mouth stretched open with two metal hooks while a man in a white coat force-fed her until she choked and gagged.
The artist was also injected with numerous needles, had her skin braised and lotions and creams smeared across her face.
Passers-by were gobsmacked to see Jacqueline, a social sculpture student at Oxford Brookes University, forced to have a section of her head shaved.
The gruesome spectacle aimed to highlight the cruelty inflicted on animals during cosmetic laboratory tests and raise awareness that animal testing is still a common practise.
The Humane Society International and Lush Cosmetics have joined forces to launch the largest-ever global campaign to end animal testing for cosmetics.
The campaign, launched to coincide with World Week for Animals in Laboratories, is being rolled out simultaneously in over 700 Lush Ltd shops across forty-seven countries including the United States, Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia.
Lush campaign manager Tamsin Omond said: “The ironic thing is that if it was a beagle in the window and we were doing all these things to it, we’d have the police and RSPCA here in minutes.
“But somewhere in the world, this kind of thing is happening to an animal every few seconds on average.
“The difference is, it’s normally hidden. We need to remind people it is still going on.”

In the past I have often written entries with the desire to get on top journals, simply for my personal amusement, or to play its part in petty VF drama. This, however, I believe is an actual important issue, online and off.

Bald Barbie Comforts Kids with Cancer:
Mattel, the makers of Barbie, announced last month that a hairless “friend of Barbie“ will “be distributed exclusively to children’s hospitals and other hospitals treating children with cancer throughout the U.S. and Canada, directly reaching girls who are most affected by hair loss.” The decision came after a Facebook group called “Beautiful and Bald Barbie! Let’s see if we can get it made” scored thousands of “likes”within hours of its creation.
Why does she have to be “a friend of Barbie”? Why can’t Barbie be bald? :/
The issue isn’t only about her being “a friend of Barbie” but also that there will only be 10,000 dolls made for “special” selected children in hospitals to receive them. One of the many problems with the dolls not being available to the public is the “Beautiful and Bald Barbie! Let’s see if we can get it made” Facebook page was created because many people want this doll made and want to have a doll like this for numerous reasons. One of the main reasons is so children undergoing chemotherapy or with problems like alopecia and trichotillomania can have a doll that looks like them. The majority of the people that want this doll are not in the hospital. Also by Mattel creating such a small number of the dolls they are making it very hard for the children to even get to play with them. Thankfully MGA Entertainment stepped up to the plate and created bald female and male dolls long before Mattel announced that they were making their new “friend of Barbie”. MGA Entertainment will be selling “True Hope” Moxie Dollz and Bratz in Toys R Us stores this June.
