This is the most amazing dog I’ve ever worked with.

sagan down stayHe’s seven months old and already takes direction like an adult.

I’d like him to live to be 25. Is that possible?

Listening, Learning, and Taking Action

The cover of this week’s Time magazine. This soul crushingly powerful artwork is by Titus Kaphar, an American artist whose work examines the history of representation.

Last Tuesday, I posted about how I would be taking a break from posting Bubby and Bean content here and on my social media channels, in an effort to make room for Black voices (who deserve to be heard; now and always), spend time researching, learning, and listening, and start to more actively make a difference. I also consistently and frequently shared (and continue to share) resources and amplified Black voices on my Instagram Stories. (If you go to my Instagram account, click on the “BLM” highlight on my profile to see what I’ve shared. It will remain there indefinitely.)

I lost hundreds of Instagram followers over this past week, simply for speaking up about what is right. And I am relieved and grateful that these followers left. I have also, in the past, had agencies I work with tell me to shy away from getting political (which this is not anyway; this is human decency) or sharing any sort of “controversial” content. I won’t be working with these agencies anymore. I have always considered myself to be vocally anti-racist, but I have learned so much over this past week about how much better I need to do.

This past week of being muted may be over, but things are not the same. Am I going to stop posting my usual lifestyle/design/parenting/home related content to focus solely on social justice? No. That is not my expertise, and for 10 years, Bubby and Bean has been lifestyle based, and will continue to be. (My next post will be about my kids, and sharing an end-of-school-year interview you can give to yours. ) Am I going to continue to do what I can to show my support for BLM on social media? Yes. Am I going to make more of an effort to include Black and other People of Color here and on social media? Absolutely. Am I going to continue to share resources on ways to learn about systemic racist and to take action against horrific injustices? YES. This is only just beginning. I encourage my friends and followers to continue this momentum. We have to create substantial change. Period.

Amplifying Black voices and taking action against horrific injustice should not and must not be a temporary trend. I may lose more followers, and I may lose campaigns, and I may lose money, and I am good with that. Again, I hope my fellow non-Black friends and followers will join me in continuing this fight. We have a responsibility, and it doesn’t end today.

Thank you for listening. Thank you for doing something.

Being an Ally and Taking a Break

Artwork by Sacrée Frangine 

A few days ago, I posted on Instagram about my personal responsibility as a White person and parent of White children to teach my kids about racial injustice, the importance of being an ally, and how to make it a priority to listen to and amplify the voices of their Black friends and all Black people. I have also posted consistently in my Instagram Stories with my thoughts on what is happening right now, why it is crucial for non-Black “influencers” (you all know how I feel about that word) to speak up and not remain silent no matter how uncomfortable it might feel, and resources to help us do our part to actually creating change.

I realize now though that THIS IS NOT ENOUGH. If we are truly allies, we need to speak up, but we also need to take ACTION. I am choosing to take a break from posting here and on social media for now, so that I can (1) listen to and make room for the voices of Black people, as these are the voices that need and deserve to be front and center, (2) do as much of my own research as possible into systemic racism and ways to be truly anti-racist (rather than asking my Black friends to share their resources or experiences; they are exhausted and should not be expected to provide the emotional labor to educate me or other white people on topics we should be putting the work into ourselves) and (3) find ways I can actively make a difference to put an end to the massive racial injustice that encompasses this country, by donating funds, contacting my local congressmen/women, and finding ways to peacefully protest. I will also continue to amplify the voices of my Black sisters and brothers by sharing what they have to say, as well as resources to help create positive change, in my Instagram Stories.

I want to be an ally. I vow to do more.

2chで情報収集したからこそ、品川美容外科にしました

 

インターネット上には様々な情報が掲載されており、

美容外科クリニックの評判なども調べることができるため、

クリニック選びに活用しましょう。

巨大掲示板である2chではクリニックの評価や評判だけでなく、

人気の医師の実名も掲載されているため、チェックしてみましょう。

 

ただし、2chは体験談など様々情報を入手できる反面、

根も葉もない噂やときには嘘も書き込まれているため、

2chに書き込まれて話をすべて鵜呑みにしてしまうのは危険といえます。

参考程度のとどめておくのがポイントです。

 

品川美容外科クリニックに厄介になったことがある身としては

2chの書き込みは虚実それぞれあるのが困った状態だと考えています。

人間良いことよりも悪いことの方が目に付くものですから、

品川美容外科クリニックに対して

誤った情報を信じている人も少なくないのではないでしょうか。

 

品川美容外科クリニックは全国にクリニックを展開する大手です。

もし品川美容外科クリニックが

常に説明義務違反をしているクリニックであったり、

未熟な医師ばかりで、年中医療過誤を起こしているクリニックであるなら、

全国にクリニックを展開することはないでしょうし、

多くの人が利用することもないでしょう。

2chという場所の性質上、

アンチな意見があるのは仕方がないことかもしれませんが、

品川美容外科クリニックに対してあまりにアンチな意見は、

実際に品川美容外科クリニックを利用しているわたしにとっては

違和感がある意見です。

 

美容外科クリニックの評判や評価は2chだけでなく、

ランキングサイトや口コミサイトなどでも確認することができ、

実際にクリニックを利用した人の体験談を見ることもできます。

クリニック選びのために

インターネット上で情報収集する場合は、

2chだけに頼らず、複数にサイトを利用することをお勧めします。
