Rowan Blanchard: ‘White Feminists Forget That Feminism Means Equality’

Teenagers everywhere: listen up. Actually, humans of all ages: listen up.

Disney star Rowan Blanchard made a name for herself this year (and earned a spot on Time’s 30 Most Influential Teens of 2015 list) for her thoughtful comments about feminism and equality. In June, the 14-year-old spoke at the UN Women’s annual summit about her personal connection to feminism: “When I was in preschool, I played catch with the other kids and I was told I threw like a girl. I’ve identified as a feminist ever since.”

In August, she published an essay about the importance of intersectional feminism in a three-part Instagram post (see parts two and three here):

Part 1. By me

A photo posted by Rowan Blanchard (@rowanblanchard) on

The posts went viral, garnering more than 97,000 likes on Instagram — and the platform took note. This week, Blanchard joined Instagram in Los Angeles to co-host the launch of Instagram’s new initiative, #MyStory, which aims to highlight powerful female voices on the platform. Twenty-eight women and their photos were selected for the exhibit.

HuffPost asked the young but seasoned feminist about the most problematic misconceptions the movement faces today. She said, ”to treat it all the same or say all women are treated equally is not fair. The way that I experience sexist comments is different than the way a black woman experiences sexist comments.”

The actress continued: “Race is such a difficult conversation to have in America because everybody is so afraid of talking about it. We don’t have to say we are colorblind. People have different experiences. To say you don’t see color erases the experiences of so many.”

In addition to opening up about how young girls are taught to evaluate their own beauty, Blanchard also talked to HuffPost about race in America and what it was like to grow up with yogis for parents. Read highlights from our conversation below.

Both of your parents are yoga instructors. Did their work influence your relationship with body image growing up?

Yoga is knowing that you can try again and again. Yoga is so universal — the feeling that it gives you. I didn’t really realize until I was much older that I could have a mind, body, spirit connection. I feel like I was definitely much more in tune with my body and in tune with not always succeeding partly because of them. I grew up with my parents teaching me yoga. My mom would donate classes to my school and teach everyone. But it was more embarrassing when my dad would do it because he likes to sing and embarrass me. Now I look back on that and that makes my dad my dad [laughs].

What is the importance of a platform like Instagram when it comes to conversations about body image and young women?

When I was younger, there were only white European princess dolls to play with. I would play with them and I loved them. The girls I would hang out with loved those princesses too. Now I look back, and there were no African American princesses. They were just European. It was a very specific type of beauty standard. When you’re little girl that loves princesses, you go to the store and you can be Sleeping Beauty, Ariel or Cinderella. That was the diversity. It makes you question, ‘Am I not pretty enough to be a princess?’ Looking back, I think that it must have had an impact on girls who didn’t look like that.

Do you think there are more ways to define beauty now because of technology and social media?

I do, especially with Instagram because it’s photo-based. You can take pictures of yourself and other people. I feel like you don’t have to be one type of beauty and you don’t have to fit somebody else’s standards of beauty. One of my favorite things about tonight’s event is that the [photos] are so diverse. I love that.

Do you think that as women, we are naturally drawn to want to look at things that are pretty? Do we care most about beauty?

I think society has taught us that our beauty is the only thing that is valued. That’s how we are measured. Women tend to gravitate towards questions of ‘Am I beautiful?’ and ‘Am I enough?’ because that is what we have been taught — to evaluate our own beauty.

Do you think that needs to be changed? And how?

I think it needs to be changed, absolutely. I don’t think it’s fair that you have to base your self-worth on whether or not the cute guy likes you back. I feel like we can change that by initiatives like #MyStory that says you can be from this place or that place, or look like this or look like that. What matters is the message that you’re putting out there. The event is called My Story; it’s not called My Beauty.

Sometimes conversations about feminism can be polarizing. How do we make it more inclusive?

Unfortunately, a lot of white feminists forget that feminism means equality. It means equality for trans women and equality for black women. Even when people make comments like ‘Boys don’t have to worry about the way they dress’ — actually, Trayvon Martin was killed because he had a hoodie on. I think it’s about acknowledging your privilege and looking at how you can help other people. Feminism can seem like this thing that polarizes people because the version of feminism that we most often see does polarize people.

I think it all comes down to recognizing your privilege and recognizing how to help others. So obviously a white man is more privileged than I am, but I am still more privileged than somebody else.

 

What is your hope for the future of feminism?

I think it all comes down to recognizing your privilege and recognizing how to help others. So obviously a white man is more privileged than I am, but I am still more privileged than somebody else.

Sex After 50 Means Never Having To Apologize For Orgasming First

Today we launch a special Sex After 50 series that will include a week of blogs, videos and stories about sex, love and dating after 50. This first video features Michael C. Bryan, a gay 50-something single looking for love. In addition to the video, we asked Michael five questions. His answers are below. Check out our other Sex After 50 stories here.

 

Huff/Post50: How has sex and dating changed for you after age 50 compared to the way it was when you were, say, in your 20s?

 

Michael: My past sexual life is pretty wild. I was a sex worker when I was younger and I worked for years in nightclubs in the Lower East Side of New York City. I found myself in many, many compromising positions (literally). I learned sex is liberating and freeing and is so much fun. As a sex worker it was all about my being in control. I was the one calling the shots. I was proving my sexual prowess to everyone and being provocative to gain attention (and it worked). Now, I don’t feel a need to prove my sexual prowess. I know what I’ve got and I know how to use it. I know what I want. I think that’s the great thing about sex after 50. I don’t feel the need to apologize when I am making sure my needs are being met. Sure, of course, I respect my partner’s needs as well, but my needs are first and foremost. As a gay guy I talk about this a lot with my female friends. They no longer feel guilt over making sure they have orgasms and are feeling good. They are no longer willing to forsake their pleasure for other men. And they are also questioning how the sex and emotional link works for them or not. Being over 50 and having sex means never having to say you’re sorry for being the first one to orgasm.   

 

Huff/Post50: What’s the biggest challenge you face in today’s dating scene?

 

Michael: Making peace and loving where I’m at while also transcending any limitations I (or society) put on me to act a certain way when it comes to my age.  It’s all a self-imposed mindset that I place on myself. The moment I start to feel I need to act a certain way and be a certain way then I’m doomed. I compare and despair. I do the tired ‘oh, it’s so hard to date at this age’ dance which is just boring. I can’t go there anymore, but when I do I just remind myself to fully love where I am and then I’m golden. Plus, I can fit into 30-inch jeans at my age and that’s cause for a party.  

 

Huff/Post50: What’s the biggest myth surrounding sex and dating after 50?

 

Michael: This will be hard for anyone under the age of 40 to understand, but sex as you get older is just sex as you get older. It’s not more complicated than that. But if you would have said that to me at 25 or 35 I would have said to myself ‘ew’ but now I say, ‘sex is sex is sex and age is really only a state of mind.’ What’s funny is that when I feel how sexy I am and feel good in my skin without trying to prove it to anyone, then I never get any shit from people because they feel what I feel. But when I try, that’s when I have an epic fail! Ha. But it’s true. There is also another thing that I’ve found funny as I’ve gotten older. People look at me differently because of my sheer biological age. As if I know something more, or that I have this gravitas even when I don’t feel it. When I started to realize that then I realized, ‘Okay, then. This is something I can work with.’ Everyone I meet now fuels my empowerment sexually and that’s the amazing part of getting older. I’ve earned this place to say ‘I’m hot shit’ and everyone supports that. Especially me.  

 

Huff/Post50: Who was your favorite sex symbol growing up?

 

Michael: This is gonna make me sound SO gay but Farrah Fawcett. She was sweet and entirely uncynical but also knew how sexy she was. She wasn’t afraid to flaunt what she had, but she was also super smart and knew how to play the game. She wasn’t ashamed of her beauty. She celebrated it and she didn’t care how many people judged her. She loved who she was. And she only felt this way because of the constant judgment of her as this ‘dumb blond’ so many labeled her with. She used her beauty to inspire herself and her sense of easy sexuality which was a large part of her private and personal life. I only know this because I met her when I was 15. She was the kindest, sweetest and naturally sexiest person I’d ever met. We talked for a half an hour about everything. I’ll never forget how she touched my arm when I told her how pretty she was and she said, “It’s never about the outside, darlin’. It’s always about the inside.” Been my mantra for much of my adult life.  

 

Huff/Post50: What celebrity older than 50 would you describe as totally sexy today?

 

Michael: I would never, ever have said this two years ago but to my shock my after-50 badass inspiration has been Madonna. As a gay guy I felt it was my duty to love her but after seeing her live on the original Virgin tour in the 80s, I fell out of like with her. All of my super cool friends said she just made silly music that wasn’t about a lot and that it wasn’t very advanced. That much better artists deserved more recognition than her. But then something happened. I turned 50 and I was having a hard time loving my age. I struggled for so long before 50 to come onto my own and I kept condemning myself for not being a bigger success. I was so angry it took me so long to get it all together. And I was really mad at Madonna for feeling at 52 what I only had begun to taste at 51. But then for a full year I listened to her music. Really listened to the lyrics. And I’ve come to see how she is the ultimate self-help guru of pop music. All her music is about moving, striving and not getting caught up in the past. To make your own life, your own reality. And I realized the reason so many people make fun of her is because she refuses to play the victim, refuses to be cynical and is a hardcore romantic about what we are capable of doing in this lifetime. She is 57 and is in amazing shape and couldn’t really care how many people dis her. She loves who she is and she isn’t going to change to please anybody. She celebrates life and she celebrates where she is in life. Are her efforts sometimes to be relevant faintly pushed? Yes, they are. But look at where she is. Look at what she’s done. Look at what she’s accomplished. Personally, her music and lyrics are helping me to become my own version of a male Madonna after 50 and I couldn’t be happier. Time for me to rule the world.

The Braid That Means Business: Proenza Schouler’s Strict Single Plait

proenza braids

Individuality seems to be the word on the tip of everyone’s tongues backstage at New York Fashion Week this season, which is exactly why Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez decided to offer a refreshing counterpoint to the undone, come-as-you-are beauty that’s been ruling the runways. “They were looking at images of Frida Kahlo and documentary photos of Cuban women. Braids were a consistent theme throughout all of the pictures,” explained hairstylist Anthony Turner of the last-minute decision to fasten each model’s hair into a slick, substantial single plait.

This being Proenza Schouler, of course, there was an urban twist in store: Turner gathered the models’ hair at the nape of the neck in a strict low ponytail, before tightly weaving it into a thick, flat braid. A homemade effect that Turner characterized as “a bit screwy” came at the hands of Bumble and Bumble Thickening and Prep sprays instead of a hairbrush. Instead, he was raking his fingers through it to create a messy, rough center part: “We wanted the hair to feel a few days old,” he said. “She knows she’s amazing. She doesn’t care too much.” The final effect was a gutsy Cuba-by-way-of–New York City braid that elongated the neck, showcasing the fashion house’s new dangling earrings and high-collared silhouettes and offering up a fresh confidence. Or, as Turner put it with a twinkle: “She means business.”

Only six models with short curly hair were left that way, including newcomer Shelby Hayes, who was discovered just two weeks ago in Orange County, California. Just yesterday, Turner shaped her shoulder-length Afro into a tomboyish crop. “It’s really cute,” said Hayes, feeling her new short lengths with a smile. Standing out from the crowd has never sounded easier.

What the Ashley Madison Hacking Dump Means for Divorce — and Marriage

When the Impact Team announced it had hacked the Ashley Madison site back in July, the 40 million plus subscribers were likely shaking in their boots. The hackers threatened to dump the personal and financial data and publish customers’ records unless the company took down the AM and Established Men sites.

Well, that day has come.

The internet is flush with articles sharing advice on how to get over a spouse’s affair yet ask a roomful of women what they’d do if they caught a husband in midst of even a steamy sext and the clothes are flying out the window.

So, what if a woman (or man) finds out the one who shares the bed and the remote subscribed to a site with the sole intent of extramarital sex?

I’d suspect finding out your husband (or wife) was trolling websites for a new bed partner or partners is a whole lot different from finding out he had a drunken encounter with a colleague on a business trip but maybe not.

According to the article 20 Important Emotional Affair Statistics featured on the HRF.Org site, 88 percent of married women surveyed say they’d be much more devastated by an emotional affair than a roll or two between the sheets. About 35 percent of women and 45 percent of men surveyed said they’d had an emotional affair and 60 percent will be touched by some sort of infidelity during the span of their marriages. (I guess that would account for the 40 so million on Ashley Madison!) Oh — and 60 percent of those who had affairs met at the office.

Advice for the scorned spouse that I’ve found on a slew of sites mostly focus on a whole lot of apologies, rebuilding trust, and figuring out what went wrong. I’ve interviewed men and women who have had extramarital affairs and most have cited a need to be valued or desired. (I would guess there’s also a fair number who are addicted to the thrill of something they’re not supposed to do kinda like sneaking some ice cream when mom says to wait till after dinner.)

Perhaps some people just form a connection between someone other than the betrothed, whether at work or at the local Starbucks. Either way, engaging with someone other than your spouse is a choice.

When a spouse or even significant other makes a conscious effort to find an on the side dance partner, I’d suppose the forgiveness part would be a lot more challenging. Perhaps the key to self-preservation has to do with trying to maintain your self-esteem and changing the locks!

Still, maybe things like infidelity don’t happen in a vacuum. Couples grow apart. People are exhausted from work responsibilities. Add in a baby or a few kids and it’s even more challenging. Relationships take nurturing and communication. Nonetheless, if a spouse is looking to supplement the main squeeze with something on the side, you need to have a frank discussion.

I’ve discovered a few sites like The Marriage Foundation place the blame on the spouse at home, advising wives to “Stop being no-user friendly. Become more loving. And the biggie, “Take care of his sexual needs!’

Because we know if he were happy at home, he wouldn’t be looking, for God’s sake!

No matter if you decide to hang in there and work things out with a weekend away and a spree at Victoria’s Secret or to allocate that money towards the divorce lawyer, nobody deserves to be blamed for someone else’s choices.

Can a marriage survive Ashley Madison or an uncovered sexting session? That’s up to the people involved. Infidelity doesn’t have to be the death knell of a relationship unless it’s a deal breaker. If you’re willing to give it a go, a healthy relationship would need a rebuilding of trust and communication. Turning a blind eye isn’t necessarily healthy.

Kylie Jenner’s 18th Birthday Means More NSFW Photos Are Coming

Kylie Kristen Jenner, recent high school graduate, home-owner, reality star and Snapchat queen, turns 18 on Aug. 10. 

It’s a birthday that’s been a longtime coming for a girl whose has been in a rush to grow up, and it has some people feeling a little uneasy — like her older sister Kendall, who posted this NSFWish photo to Instagram on Friday that she captioned, “weekend vibes #KyliesTurning18ImScared.” 

We’re guessing that Kendall is anticipating that as soon as Kylie turns 18 all those NSFWish photos will soon become just NSFW ones. It’s a family tradition, after all. 

It looks like Kylie will be celebrating her birthday for more than a week, since the festivities have apparently just begun and she’s scheduled to celebrate with a party at Beachclub in Pointe-Calumet, Quebec,  on Aug. 16, where the legal drinking age is, you guessed it, 18.

Growing Number Of Americans Say They Understand What It Means To Be Transgender

Americans’ understanding of what it means to be transgender has grown since Caitlyn Jenner came out about her transition this May.

In a new HuffPost/YouGov poll, 42 percent of Americans say they have a very or extremely good understanding of what it means to be transgender, up from 31 percent just this February.

Forty-three percent say they’ve been following news about Jenner, and more than half say they’ve learned some or a great deal about transgender issues in the past year.

“We are having a larger national conversation about transgender issues, and by Caitlyn choosing to tell her story, she’s adding to that conversation,” GLAAD spokesman Nick Adams told the LA Times earlier this month. “It is allowing Americans to feel like they know someone who is transgender and hopefully bringing a greater understanding about what it means to be a transgender person.”

So far, that increased awareness doesn’t seem to have translated into changing minds on some of the issues advocates are fighting for. As in February, Americans are about evenly split on whether parents should allow their children to identify as a different gender from the one they were assigned at birth, and on whether transgender people should be allowed to use public restrooms, dressing rooms and locker rooms designated for a different gender than the one they were assigned at birth.

Still, the survey suggests that just knowing someone who is transgender makes people significantly more comfortable with both ideas.

Among Americans who knew at least one transgender person, 57 percent said transgender people should be able to use restrooms and dressing rooms for their preferred gender, and 46 percent said parents should allow their children to identify as a different gender from the one they were assigned at birth. Among those who didn’t know someone transgender, just 31 percent and 33 percent, respectively, said the same.

Another recent survey, conducted by SurveyMonkey for NBC News, found that most Americans think transgender people face prejudice today, but that 76 percent believe society will be at least somewhat more accepting 10 years from now. Sixty-six percent said Jenner’s transition would help society along that road.

The HuffPost/YouGov poll consisted of 1,000 completed interviews conducted June 3-4 among U.S. adults using a sample selected from YouGov’s opt-in online panel to match the demographics and other characteristics of the adult U.S. population.

The Huffington Post has teamed up with YouGov to conduct daily opinion polls. You can learn more about this project and take part in YouGov’s nationally representative opinion polling. Data from all HuffPost/YouGov polls can be found here. More details on the poll’s methodology are available here.

Most surveys report a margin of error that represents some, but not all, potential survey errors. YouGov’s reports include a model-based margin of error, which rests on a specific set of statistical assumptions about the selected sample, rather than the standard methodology for random probability sampling. If these assumptions are wrong, the model-based margin of error may also be inaccurate. Click here for a more detailed explanation of the model-based margin of error.

Evocative Photo Project Counters Stereotypes Of What It Means To Be Black, Masculine And Stylish

For black men, the world of fashion has often been one wrought with stereotypes, misconceptions and images of three-sizes-too-large T-shirts, baggy jeans and flashy chains.

But the ongoing photo series “The Dandy Lion Project” aims to change all that by speaking to the fact that black male fashion, and, by association, black masculinity, is diverse and not solely defined by the sort of images of black men who dominate mainstream media.

The project is organized by Shantrelle Lewis, a Philadelphia- and Brooklyn-based curator. Initially launched for a pop-up art space in Harlem in 2010, “Dandy Lion” has since been featured in shows throughout the world. Its latest exhibition, at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, opened Monday.

Kia Chenelle, “The Waiting Man I.” 2013. Archival print, 8 x 10 in.

The show, titled “Dandy Lion: (Re)Articulating Black Masculine Identity,” explores the idea of the “black dandy,” who Lewis described as “a man of African descent who has assimilated and acculturated European fashion in terms of Edwardian-style fashion and tailoring and has African aesthetics.” The show features photos of young urban men dressed in the “dandy” style from all over the world, taken by photographers ranging from the renowned to the unknown.

But what exactly makes up the “dandy” style? The look is a carefully tailored one that often includes a suit, or a vintage sweater or varsity jacket and mixes that early-to-mid 20th-century style with an African aesthetic that is often bursting with bold colors, rich fabrics and flamboyant patterns. It is not simply, as the exhibition announcement noted, “an imitation of European high-brow society.”

Though the “dandy” concept dates back hundreds of years — most carefully documented by Slaves to Fashion author Monica Miller — the “remixed” style is especially befitting of today’s “hip-hop generation,” Lewis explained.

“It definitely goes against the norm in the industry,” Lewis told The Huffington Post. “It’s a way in which they meticulously take and borrow from different cultures that speaks to the diaspora experience in general. It’s also part of the hip-hop aesthetic, borrowing and sampling — that’s what these guys are doing when they get dressed.”

Museum of Contemporary Photography executive director Natasha Egan also found the subject timely — which is part of the reason why they brought the show to Chicago.

“It’s a subject that people talk about in the contemporary art world, this sort of representation of urban black men, but you haven’t seen a show like this,” Egan said. “It’s a great marriage between photography and fashion, which also is often about politics and gender.”

While paying so much attention to one’s appearance might strike some as feminine, Lewis pointed out that the project is intended to push back against that stereotype too. The photo subjects are a mix of straight men as well as gay men, according to Lewis.

“I wanted to combat these limited and narrow ideas of masculinity,” Lewis said. “It’s refreshing to see men who can embrace femininity regardless of sexuality. I have consciously picked images that show and respect that delicate balance between masculinity and femininity — one doesn’t overpower the other and they operate in harmony.”

And at a time where media images of black men continue to reinforce stereotypes rather than offering a broader view of African-American experiences, exhibitions like Lewis’s serve a powerful purpose.

“There’s something to be said about how images continue to perpetuate aggression and fear of black men in our society, images that are closely related to the commercialized image of the thug and the rapper, what we hear on the radio and what we see in films and on TV,” Lewis said. “It’s a manufactured image. I think of those images as being controlled and I think it’s time we collectively as a society across races and demographics begin to really dismantle them.”

This view shows the Grand March and dance floor, complete with spectacular streamers, of an unidentified school circa 1950, photographed by Al Heitman.

These Adorable Animals Understand What It Means To Have A Friend’s Back

It’s such a special feeling to have a friend whom you know will always have your back. These animals understand first hand:

Big Dog was nervous for his big date, so Little Dog whispered a tiny pep talk on the way to dinner.

Little Camel made sure his older sister’s sarong didn’t get wrinkled while they traveled to the farmer’s market.

Duck looks like she’s freeloading, but she actually just gave Dog some valuable swimming advice. (Glide, don’t paddle.)

Egret ensured Elephant he didn’t need to waste his cash on Rogaine. Bald is beautiful, after all.

Tortoise has always been a little shy. Meerkat’s taken it upon himself to help her come out of her shell.

Pigaloo and Pigalee love to get a little punny.

“OK,” Turtle said. “We can slide just this once.”

Dog just complimented Donkey’s pin straight mane, while Donkey’s all like, “No, no, no I love your natural curls.”

Turtle just got his shell waxed, so Gator offered to keep him dry on the commute to work.

Opossum gave Baby Deer’s coat a long, luxurious combing before the pair searched for four-leaf clovers together.

Dog allows Frog to take a little seat, so long as he promises to keep away the flies.

Unlikely pals...

Honestly, Dog just wanted a new profile picture. Horse was like, “Fine.”

Turtle could tell Dog was feeling blue. A ride around town turned his frown upside down.

Rooster’s job gets him up early, so he often needs to rest his legs. Tortoise understands.

Today was Capybara’s first time giving the kindergartners a ride to school. She felt so proud.

Turtle told Baby Girl she might as well enjoy her tiny size while it lasts.

It was the night of the dance and Turtle had a few crumbs stuck in his shell. Hedge agreed to pick them out.

Goat missed the bus to school and Hippo overslept. Not a great start to the day, but they’ll get through it.

Dog knew the bunnies would get a kick out of his new friend: Little Chick is one of the best joke tellers of all time.

(And Dog was right.)

It’s not every day that Cat’s willing to take the possums out for ice cream. Today is very special indeed.

Dog and Owl are actually plotting something kind of mischievous. Better not to ask.

Monkey wants to go to the studio to paint pottery. Dog will go because last week Monkey helped him hang his new light-blocking curtains.

Snail was like, “Want to have a shell party?” Crustacean was like, “Shell yeah!”

CORRECTION: A previous version of this story identified the young opossum as a porcupine.
