The Rarest And Most Endangered Species On Earth Today

     Millions and millions of species have existed on Earth over the 4.5 billion years it has been around. They have come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Some of them are extremely deadly and some of them are as docile and friendly as your next door neighbor. But for all the wonderful creates that still grace our world, we have also seen so many go extinct and disappear forever. It’s a very sad occurrence that has happened too many times.

 

     That’s why we need to be so vigilant and aware of current species that are in danger of becoming extinct themselves! There are A LOT of species that are currently on the endangered list and we have to do whatever we can to protect them and make sure they don’t go extinct! That’s why we wanted to make this list of rare and endangered species. They are all so unique and interesting and beautiful and we would hate to see them disappear forever. So scroll through the list, beef up your species knowledge, and help where you can!

Society’s Lack of Boundaries Exposed in this Controversial Photo Series

The lack of boundaries felt by women in our society is at a dangerous level and this edgy photo series shows how women feel every day.

The lack of boundaries felt by women in our society is at a dangerous level and this edgy photo series shows how women feel every day.  Pittsburgh-based photographer Allaire Bartel was recently inspired by the theme of a conference she attended and made a very controversial photo series.  Women feel victimized and oppressed every day of their lives and that is a huge problem, it’s 2017, what gives?

Bartel explains on her website, “I was particularly determined to express the idea that oppression of women does not just occur in extremely isolated incidents (violent rape and physical abuse) but can also be felt in lesser forms during the day to day.”

 

These photos how your average female professional navigating the oversexed and oppressed world she lives in.  The pics are of her attempting to do the everyday type of things like commuting to work in a city or going to a yoga class that most males take for granted.

 

“The concept of male entitlement is represented by male arms and hands performing a variety of actions that are overwhelming intrusive on her body and her life,” she wrote. “In each situation, she maintains a blank expression, a visual choice that demonstrates how conditioned we as women have become to accept this atmosphere as excusable and even normal.”

The male representation is shown as grabbing hands and lunging body parts, and it is way too real.  Thinking about how this photo series shows how women are treated daily should shed light on this often overlooked subject.  

Imagine walking down the street and getting groped out of the darkness, that is what “cat-calling” must feel like.  Men never have to feel like they are being objectified like women do each and every day.

 

Surviving in a male-dominated world must be difficult and it’s time we level the playing field and try our best to live in a world where everyone is equal.
