Subversive Models Needed!!

If you are interested in participating in a photoshoot for the new issue of untamed, contact Candais Crivello. Let her know what aspect of the photoshoot you are interested in.

Today at 1:30 at the Tabard students are meeting to take a variety of photos.

One major idea we have is "This is what a feminist looks like" and we want to get simple portraits of people who are feminists as themselves to show the diversity of feminism on this campus. If you cannot make it today for a portrait, let us know if you can do it at a later time and we can meet you then.

Another potential theme is stereotypes-- debunking them by combining different types and showing how absurd they are. An example is the virgin-whore paradox. Someone could dress up half "virginal" and half more "sexual" perhaps and show the impossibility of being both at once. These are just some ideas.

Let us know if you're interested!!

Thanks,
Valerie

And you wonder why the Review is a campus joke? Oh man, there's a photoshoot for people of different sexualities than I - big news!!! What exactly, dearest A.S., is your point here (other than, of course, somehow poking fun at the event). How do these people bother you? What are they doing that they aren't allowed to? Why don't you even TRY to hide your immense bigotry?

Wow, someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Talk about blowing things out of proportion. TRY to settle down.

Perhaps they were hoping they'd get a Reviewer in drag or a Che Guevara shirt.

And yes, 8:55, switch to decaf.

Just as a side note to 8:55, I've noticed that "the virgin-whore paradox" is the butt of a lot more campus jokes than the Review.

Isn't debunking stereotypes by showing stereotypes akin to fighting fire with fire?

How ingenious.
