snipshot_udvn4g641.jpgScarlett Johansson has definitely increased her profile lately in such recent movies as The Prestige, Scoop, Matchpoint, and The Black Dahlia. This leverage for publicity has given her an open mic to address the issues she’s passionate about. In a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, Johansson decided to let loose some political steam saying,

“We’re supposed to be liberated in America but if our president had his way, we wouldn’t be educated about sex at all. Every woman would have six children and we wouldn’t be able to have abortions.”

Interesting point. She’s not the only one that feels this way; the state of New Jersey recently became the fourth state to turn down federal abstinence money, after California, Pennsylvania and Maine. The federal money would have ‘barred teachers from mentioning contraception’ in the classroom against the government’s stipulation ‘that marriage be promoted as the normal place for sexual activity.’ Wow. Real Smart.

Johansson also had a few words for celebrities using charity work to boost their own profiles,

“You’re always going to have people who hop on the bandwagon when something is hip. The important thing to remember is that women and children in Africa need help and that has nothing to do with my career.”

We could go back and forth about who exactly Scarlett is talking about, but we’ll save judgment for another day. The blog we got this from ended with these words,

“Meanwhile Scarlett Johansson insists her new sportswear line will fit normal people – because it has been designed to fit her body.”

Hahaha…man, I just love gossip sites sometimes. What a way to end a serious piece like that!

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Jallikattu was a single issue campaign doomed for failure

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
