University Of Washington Comes Under Fire For Controversial Cheerleader Tryouts Flyer

(PCM) The University of Washington is receiving a ton of backlash after they posted quite the controversial cheerleader tryouts flyer on their Facebook page. Many are finding the flyer, which has since been removed to be quite offensive and non-inclusive to people various ethnicity.

The flyer features a scantily clad thin, blonde, white woman accompanied by a list of do’s and don’ts for having a successful cheerleader and dance team tryout. Some of those do’s and don’t include make-up tips such as “Do have a bronze, beachy glow” and “Do wear false eye lashes” and “Don’t have nude lips” or “Don’t have dark smokey eyes”.  They also feature hair tips such as “Do wear your hair straight or curled” and “Don’t have a ponytail or trendy colors”!

Washington-cheerleader

The director of programming for the UW student government, Jazmine Perez,  is dumbfounded by the flyers saying “I can’t believe this is real. One of the first things that comes mind is objectification and idealization of Western beauty, which are values I would like to believe the University doesn’t want to perpetuate. As a student of color who looks nothing like the student in the poster, this feels very exclusive.”

Many feel that students who participate in other sports team do not have to adhere to the same physical/appearance standards. Once the internet began to fire up about the post it was immediately taken down and university officials commented  “that some of the details and descriptions provided were inconsistent with the values of the UW spirit program and department of athletics.”

The Somewhat Suprising Story Behind Take Your Children To Work Day

Kids-Work

(PCM) Take Your Children To Work Day occurs on the third Thursday of April each year and has become an actual holiday that is recognized by the U.S. government. Children are legally allowed to miss school on this day to accompany their parents to work and get a true taste of just what it means to be an adult and part of the daily grind each and every day. However, did you know that initially the day was recognized only as Take Your Daughter To Work Day?

The holiday initially began as a way to show young women that they could have a career and urge them to explore future career options. It was founded by Gloria Steinem and the Ms. Foundation for Women. There was later some backlash about the holiday not being gender inclusive, so back in 2003 it was changed to Take Our Daughters and Sons To Work Day or Take Your Children To Work Day to be more inclusive.

It is worth noting that when the very first Take Your Daughter To Work Day occurred back in 1993, it was alarming for the founders to see that the visibility of young women in the workforce painted a stark portrait of the invisibility of adult women in the workforce. There have since been some major changes and now women make up more than fifty percent of the current workforce in the country.

Now the main goal of the holiday is to show all children what it is like to work in various fields other than the ones that they learn about in school, and get an excused day off as well!

Vandals Won’t Stop Stealing Heracles’ Penis Forcing City Officials To Come Up With A Plan

Heracles1

(PCM) For many years French officials have been faced with quite an interesting predicament at the Parc Mauresque in France, as their statue of the ancient Greek hero Heracules is missing a certain body part. It seems that vandals in the area very much enjoy stealing the statues intricately designed marble penis.

After replacing it several times, city officials have finally had enough and made the decision to leave poor Heracles penis-less for the majority of the year. They have now come up with a plan to fit the Heracles statue with a removable prosthetic penis that will only be placed on the statue at certain times of the year such as certain festivals and ceremonies.

The statue was created by artist Claude Bouscau and placed in the park in 1948. At the time the statue was placed, it is rumored that women in the city were shocked by the size of Heracles marble member and Bouscau had to shave down and remold it two times before it was considered satisfactory.

None of the stolen marble penises have ever been recovered over the years, leaving us to use our imaginations as to just what someone would want with a giant marble penis laying around the house, oh wait … nevermind!
