Man this teared me up. As an amateur photographer who has been lucky enough to do professional shots on occasion with beautiful professional models this is so wonderful.

I can't say I ever 'weep,' but I've been known to get just a little teary over even really trivial shiat from time to time, almost out of nowhere.  But it's not like my mood even shifts that much.  Usually just a little pang of emotion, then a little eye sting, then gone and everything's back to normal again.

Other times, even during big stuff.. nothin'.  I dunno.

Met Karrie and her mother when they visited LA for the Wet Seal photo shoot and Oscar Red Carpet gifting.  Karrie is a very charming and determined young lady and her Mom is a sweet and loving human being who is looking out for her youngest daughter.  They are genuine and unassuming and deserve the big breaks and kudos coming their way.

At least Lululemon and A&F aren't promoting/endorsing obesity, and maybe even encouraging exercise?

Good for Wet Seal and acknowledging the request, responding with a challenge, and sticking to their word.  They may have had transgressions in the past, but this helps prove they're not all bad.

TFA reminded me of this remarkable Garth Brooks video. This video was somewhat autobiographic. Gerard, the actual kid in the video, was likewise mainstreamed in high school. Similarly to the video, he tried out for the football team. He didn't actually play. He was the benchboy. The team called him their "secret weapon." Kind. Cool. Inclusive.

Gerard also has a photographic memory of all things classic rock. And he's a pretty good drum player too.

MutantMotherMouse: Laura Cunliffe is a c*nt and deserves whatever misery comes her way. I won't even bother asking why, because there is NO GOOD REASON to torture a helpless animal or child.


Amen.

I saw the headline on BBC news and... I mean how wrong does your head have to be that you lack that basic empathy for another creature? Especially a kitten, FFS, one of the cutest, most lovable little murdering bastards on the planet.

She doesn't look as retarded as many with Downs do.

I may have missed something, but it seems that the whole point of the article is that looks don't matter.

I love the parts of the article where the family is claiming she's unstable and didn't know what she was doing.  Maybe if she's so farking unstable she shouldn't be taking care of a farking animal, you useless farksticks. If they had done something about this instead of ignoring her problem, the cat would not be microwaved and the crazy family member would not be going to jail.

Show some farking spine and deal with your family's problems, or the judicial system will.

Which is why Wet Seal agreed to it.

If she had a pronounced forehead, Bassett Hound eyes, and sausage fingers they would have ignored her.

puffy999: That's right. Convince people with Downs that life is all about how we look.

Great strategy!

Actually looks do matter to Wet Seal and the public.

They're pandering to her.

I guess being a thin-skinned pleasant asshole is better?


In a word: yes.

jaytkay: omeganuepsilon: jaytkay: I was afraid people wouldn't rush in to poop all over some young girl's happy day.

Her day?  Like the 99.99999% of the world that she has no idea about or will ever see, has to just stop functioning?

Most people are totally oblivious as to what's said about them on fark.  We're not crapping on anyone's day.

Go die a horrible death, retard.

I'm glad I'm not a thin-skinned unpleasant asshole. That must be very difficult.


Suuuuuuure you're not.

Thou doth protest/project too much.

Your skin is apparently thin enough to be offended for other people who aren't even here.  Now, if you were defending homeschool chick, in that thread, that'd be different.  But random strangers from the article, which is decidedly old news.

Very, very cool Wet Seal.

I'm glad Wet Seal didn't disappoint her.

I'd hate for her to get down.

2. Begin using illegal drugs

3. Engage in promiscuous sex

4. Have "sex tape" leaked

5. You are now a full-fledged "Fashion Model".

grinding_journalist: I got more misty at the end of the "Rick Potion" episode of Rick and Morty.


OTOH, that was the best episode so far.  I liked how the family really pulled together after TEOTWAWKI.

No, but you are.

OK so maybe she's... just a little bit... completely adorable.  But you still get my point!!

I'm glad the girl doesn't realize how much she just got used by this business, for profits at her expense.  But whatever.  Yeah!

The business did what it had to in the age of social media.  It wasn't about empathy.

Lots of my female friends dream of and want to be clothing models. Having Downs Syndrome did not stop this girl from this pursuit.

I want to be a lumberjack!

Dude, you have her pegged as the next Justin Bieber?  God willing, she doesn't go out in public wearing some stupid flat-brimmed cap and sweatpants pulled down past her waist that make it look as if she just filled them.  Allahu Akbar, indeed.

omeganuepsilon: semiotix: It's a nice story.  I'm just glad Wet Seal turns out to be "casual women's sportswear, accessories and other related items" and not the boutique fetish-wear shop it sounds like.

Wet Seal brought to mind swimwear, which made me think of Wicked Weasel. (skimpy and see thru bikini's)  I was about to make popcorn for the thread but figured I'd...ahem...research it first.


haha!  Glad I wasn't the only one.

This is such an odd thread. Would any of you guys have sex with her if she offered? No? Then why all the love about her?

In addition to the great PR I assume the company got some algorithmic Facebook cred for all the "like"s. But it doesn't seem like the girl is "out" anything. They're not going to share profits, but I'm sure they don't share profits with ordinary professional models either.

ya' know what makes me feel the best about this article? ME! I RTF, and most of the comments. and for once in my pitiful lonely existence, managed to keep my cynical, mean-spirited, and frankly snide comments to my self.
/my ex used to tell me "you think your being funny, but your just pissing people off".
// she is a very smart woman. that's why I married her, and she divorced me.
