I spent a good amount of time yesterday, posting additions to this blog. I wanted to give it life and body. I wanted to help explain my message and my mission. What I am so worked up about. Why Feminism matters today more than ever for the good of men and women alike. And then a great man sent me a great Tweet and showed me another great man who really gets it. This brilliant artist put everything I want to say in a form so beautiful, so sublime, that I am not sure I could ever write enough to match it simplicity and beauty. I can only reference it, and tell you that you must see it. We all must understand this message, and do something about it. So, with no further a-do, here is the earth-shattering wonderful short video from visionary artist Andy Huang. It is entitled Doll Face, and it has left me speechless.

Change is Good..and Lacy! November 3, 2009
So. I couldn’t believe it. My hubby saw it. He’s a marvel that way, always seeing what I miss. Love that man.
We’re overseas right now and watching foreign TV. I’m working on my computer in my comfy-clothes, probably not looking my best right now, and he says: “Change..change your bra!”
Strange thing to say, right? Rife with peril for the male. He’s brave that way.
Instead of ripping his heart out with my fingernails, I decided to be calm and rational. So I asked him just what the heck he was talking about. Which proves that PMS doesn’t run me..I run on it!
So here’s what my hubby meant. ‘CHANGE,’ the actual word is now a registered trademark (Actually it seems it has been since 1995.)
Yep. You heard me. TRADE-mark. As in selling ‘Change.’ So I think, OK, maybe you could sell ideas for positive change in society, change in lifestyles, change of technology..I dunno some good change. Nope. It turns out CHANGE (R) is a company that sells bras… YES–BRAS–LIKE FOR YOUR BOOBS. Don’t believe me? Link here:
So now we know, ladies, change is not only coming..change is here!
Don’t get me wrong, I love a lacy bra as much as the next man, but somehow my dream of a brighter future for women took a hit when I read quotes like:
At Change, we respect your natural beauty. That’s why our lingerie doesn’t dictate how your body should look or promise a whole new you. What it will do is give you a variety of styles in a fit that feels just right. It’s all about feeling beautiful. So feel free to express yourself. To explore the different facets of your femininity. And the woman within.
The people at Change (R) were even nice enough to plan my week for me:
It makes a girl warm inside to know that someone is looking out for her this way. And the people of CHANGE (R) are committed to ensuring our ongoing happiness. They state it clearly in their Motto:
So now you know. Your cup size DOES matter. If we are going to have any CHANGE (R) in our lives, we should consider a Balconette.
There’s even a new line out for 2009 called CHARADE – ’nuff said.
I’d feel short-changed, except that might make me sound a little bitter. After all, it’s probably nothing. I just need a better bra.
…and that’s a Penny for Your Thoughts
