November 8: NO HATE
Posted by everysensory
“Bullying is not funny. It is not cool. It is not right. And more importantly, it is not okay.
Most of us are, thankfully, residents of countries that support tolerance and many of our families have settled in these places simply for that reason. Generations later, it is our responsibility to perpetuate that message of tolerance across our new social platforms, including the internet.
As members of the nail polish blogging community, we all share a love of beauty, color, and lacquer. Other than that, we are remarkably different: from our race to our religion to our hair color…even to our polish application techniques. To marginalize anyone because of those differences is completely unacceptable and today I take a stand against that. I refuse to allow other people’s view of “normal” dictate how I behave, believe, and blog.
In solidarity with a multitude of bloggers linked below, my purple manicure represents my proud commitment to the No H8 movement. Today, November 8, I dedicate my post to ending bullying of any kind and to encouraging diversity and imperfection among our colorful community.”
What a great idea/cause/stand to take. I believe the quote above was origingally started by Nails By Ms Lizard (AMAZING blog, check it out! http://nailsbymslizard.blogspot.co.nz/). The thing is, there’s a wee bit of drama that happens in the nail polish world – and it’s not cool. Neither is the bullying and meaness anywhere. There’s no real need for being mean, we can all adult up, be polite, hold our own boundaries firm without picking fights or being nasty. Right? Sometimes? It’s a goal, anyway. SO, I’d like to support this – I’m in this for the solidarity, the community, and the pretty colours, glitters, and textures.
Here’s my ‘from the already posted’ photo list: my Purple for No Hate (I can’t do the letter/number thing too much, makes me think I’m back in algebra class, shudder) – with accents of pearls, tape, and Sticks ‘n’ Stones. Appropriate, huh. I thought so 😉
Have a great day!
