M·A·C will give a portion of the proceeds from the M·A·C Rodarte collection to help those in need in Juarez.
This statement offends me in a pretty irrational way. I’ve been following the Ciudad Juarez femicides for years now. They started somewhere in the early ‘90’s (there is no way to establish a precise time line because the investigation has been so messed up) and ever since, hundreds of women have been killed. Now, MAC will donate a portion of the proceeds to help those in need. A fucking portion! How generous of them!
Objectifying the dead for corporate profits, now that’s a glamorous concept. Next season’s palettes: Srebrenica Meadows and Darfur landscapes. Genocide has never been so chic, guys!
For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you. Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
