THE GOOD NEWS:


Radhika Sanghani’s campaign is helping people with strong profiles embrace their uniqueness.

Over the past few years, acceptance of women with natural body types in fashion and media has been growing. There’s been advertising featuring women with visible stretch marks and cellulite. Barbie dolls now have human proportions, and brands have embraced models with skin conditions. But, according to journalist Radhika Sanghani, there’s still major prejudice against women with strong profiles.

“I feel like the only taboo that hasn’t been broken is the big nose, and it’s not right,” she wrote on Grazia Daily. “Noses are still hidden in subtle head tilts and awkward poses. We need change. It’s why I’m using this article to launch the #sideprofileselfie.”

To help people “take pride in their profiles,” Sanghani is asking those with large noses to post pictures of their side profiles on social media. The campaign empowers people of all genders to overcome their insecurities and share their stories of living with a prominent nose.

Some have taken the opportunity to open up about the bullying and ostracization they’ve endured because of their appearance.

“I just hope that it helps some of them love their noses and show big noses can be beautiful,” Sanghani told Mashable.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
