Four undergraduate students at North Carolina State University are attempting to produce a nail polish that will reveal the presence of “date rape drugs” such as Rohypnol and GHB by changing color in their presence. “With our nail polish, any woman will be empowered to discreetly ensure her safety by simply stirring her drink with her finger,” the Undercover Colors Facebook page says.
This little girl also creates her own badass female legos!
This awesome little girl creates her own baddass girl legos because the girl legos are limited to gender role stereotypes, (i.e. shopping, going to the beach, and the hair salon) Some of her creations are pretty cool.
"The Legogirl was “star of the week” in her preK class last week (every child takes a turn displaying their favorite book, toy, family photos, etc.). She didn’t want to bring in her Legos, although they are the only thing she plays with, because she was worried her “girlfriends” would make fun of her for playing with “boys’ toys.”
We finally convinced her to bring in a few of her “badassLegogirls” creations, but it did make me sad, especially since these are kids between 4 and 5, and they are already absorbing and modeling these narrow gender rules.”
