Shit that Chaps My Ass on a Tuesday Morning…

Admittedly, my ass is more prone to chapping on a Tuesday morning. I don’t know what it is about Tuesday, but I can assure you that it is the shittiest day of the week and I am almost always fussy on Tuesdays. Thus, I was especially indignant when I got this email promotion from shoe vendor JustFab:

A nude reveal

Come on, dudes? Aren’t we over equating “nude” with “beige”?  Didn’t we learn our lesson when Michelle Obama wore her “nude dress?”

Lest you think there might be some representation of some non-white ankles when you click the link, it’s all pale ankles, all the way down…

no brown ankles

  1. On a similar note-I recently published a review paper in which I made my own figures and diagrams. One figure features a foot and ankle to depict a point about ankle strength and torque after incomplete spinal cord injury and one of our particular treatments. I made a conscious decision to make the foot brown because, well, even in figures of disembodied limbs, there’s an under representation of people of color. Interestingly, the journal let their artists get ahold of a lot of what I submitted-well within their rights to do so-however my foot was summarily changed to a white dude’s foot…

    Um…WTF????

  3. you could always make it obviously a ‘fake’ foot (or… insert body part of interest) by colouring it green or purple or (insert colour of choice) …….and not accepting the proofs unless they retained your original colour. Then the parts you wanted to emphasise could be in a contrasting colour.

  4. These ‘nude’ shoes might cheer you up :)

  5. All I can see in that picture is NURA EATIS which is weird
