Ferguson Mayor James Knowles is making no friends at tonight’s Town Hall. Part 2

[part 1]

hermionejg:

In the UK we have zebra crossings, pelican crossings, puffin crossings, pegasus crossings and toucan crossings, all different types of pedestrian crossings. Did you know, though, that for a short time there was a panda crossing? This is a picture of the first one, unveiled at Waterloo in 1962 (note the Mayor, right, carrying a panda as he crosses) but it was wildly unpopular and too confusing.
From BBC On This Day:

One old lady, who was one of the first pedestrians to use the new crossing in York Road, was not impressed.
She said: “That man Marples is up to too many tricks. It’s a hairbrained scheme and most dangerous.”

I find it interesting how society doesn’t care when the media sexualizes women, when men sexualizes women, when school and the government sexualizes women. But the second a woman is in control and sexualizes herself willingly it’s wrong and disgusting.
