Vague standards: Vogue apologizes for “controversial” Kendall Jenner photo

Pay attention white girls: This is cultural appropriation…

 

While this is not…

Why is it ok for non-white girls to imitate a white girls’ look?

And why can’t a girl just mix it up a bit and do whatever she wants with her own hair?

Liberals and their hypersensitive standards…

From Hollywood Reporter: Vogue is back in the hot seat after a pair of Instagram posts displaying Kendall Jenner in an Afro-like hairstyle were accused of cultural appropriation.

The image is meant to be an update of the romantic Edwardian/Gibson Girl hair which suits the period feel of the Brock Collection, and also the big hair of the ’60s and the early ’70s, that puffed-out, teased-out look of those eras,” the Conde Nast publication said in a statement to E! News on Tuesday. “We apologize if it came across differently than intended, and we certainly did not mean to offend anyone by it.”

The instigating images — promotional photos for the publication’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund — showed Jenner wearing a curly, voluminous hairstyle that many interpreted as being a take on an Afro. In a post on Thursday, Jenner posed with model Imaan Hammam, whose hair was styled straight. In a subsequent post about the Fashion Fund on Saturday Jenner posed alone in the hairstyle.

“FOR YEARS WE have been penalized about our looks and especially our hair, It is a slap in the face when non-Blacks try to imitate our look,” one Instagram user wrote in a comment on the initial photo.

“I like Kendall but why didn’t they use an ethnic model who has hair like that,” another wrote of the initial photo.

American Vogue and a few of its sister publications have come under fire multiple times in the past year for features accused of cultural appropriation or sending a tone-deaf message. A Vogue Italia cover was accused of showing model Gigi Hadid in “blackface” in May, while last year Vogue Arabia sparked controversy for styling Rihanna in Queen Nefertiti-like garments. The same publication was called tone-deaf when it featured Saudi Princess Hayfa bint Abdullah Al Saud in a photo this year showing her behind the wheel of a car: The feature celebrated the lifting of driving restrictions for women in Saudi Arabia, but the princess’ father, the late king, enforced the women-only driving ban.

Earlier this year, American Vogue angered some women’s advocates online when it published a sympathetic story about Harvey Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman, in May. In an editor’s letter, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour wrote, “blaming her for any of it, as too many have in our gladiatorial digital age, is wrong.”

Feminism: Vogue magazine tells women to be witches

Vogue is a women’s fashion magazine.

But in a June 19, 2017 article by contributing editor Christina Perez, the fashion magazine is urging women frustrated by “the current [Trump] administration” to “awaken your inner witch” and “feminist powers”.

Vogue‘s Perez quotes Lisa Lister, author of a recently-published book, Witch: Unleashed. Untamed. Unapologetic:

“For so long it’s [witch] been a term that’s been used to demonize, stigmatize, and repress women. But right now, the word is being reclaimed.

Women across the globe are actively using the word ‘witch’ as a way to describe themselves because the witch is waking. The part of us that’s been anesthetized, domesticated, tamed, and kept numb by food, shopping, alcohol, and drugs is now awakening within us. We are re-membering the dis-membered parts of being a woman—who we all were before patriarchy put all our fierce and feminine powers into the darkness, called them taboo, and then taught us all to be afraid of the dark.”

Asked to define what a “witch” is, Lister said:

A witch is a woman in her power. She’s wise, a healer—someone who is aligned with the cycles of nature and the phases of the moon. She’s in touch with the dark. She knows how to witness, how to let things go, how to follow her own counsel. Every woman is a witch, whether she knows it or not. She’s cyclic, she’s powerful, she can embrace nature to heal herself and her community. In other words, she is magic.”

Lister then describes a “simple” ritual to awaken a woman’s “inner witch”:

  • Make a Yoni Mudra triangle over your womb (lower abdomen) with your hands by placing the tips of your thumbs together and the tips of your first fingers together. Yoni means sacred temple in Sanskrit.
  • Loudly chant “I call back my power now” three times.
  • Bring your hands to your hearts and say: “So mote it be” — which seems to be Wicca’s equivalent of “Amen”.

Reporting for LifeSiteNews, June 22, 2017, Claire Chretien points out that there is a growing, worldwide anti-President Trump movement that encourages people to cast “binding spells” on him, invoking the assistance of “demons of the infernal realms” and other spirits. The anti-Trump “spell” contains similar language to witch Lisa Lister’s ritual. Anti-Trump witches most recently encouraged people to curse Trump on June 21, the summer solstice.
