Want to help me reform the Internets #1 fashion and street style platform from its divided gender ways? Elliott Alexzander has been rising to the top of the websites leader boards by showing off his gender variant style! Why is this important? The leader boards are closely watched by site moderators which means that Elliott must be coming into view for some of them. Why is this important? Because maybe if moderators begin to realize that one of their websites top fashion bloggers is gender variant, they will rethink the way they address gender with its users. The theory behind this? Well for starters, thousands of people flock to Lookbook.nu everyday seeking fashion advice and inspiration. How cool would it be to see gender variant individuals inspiring tomorrows fashions? Fashions that are not associated with gender roles, styles that are diverse in character and clothing that is body positive. That is the kind of world I dream of, what about you? Below is the email address to lookbook.nu. Email the website and speak up about gender inequality and make them aware of how they are keeping their users identities confined. Even if you don’t care about fashion, the moral of this goes further. The gender variant community needs to be represented and understood! Also, if you want to go the extra mile, join the website and keep Elliott floating on the leader boards by “hype” all of the outfits. The links bellow:

“Bandhobi” And The ‘Other’ Immigrant
The amount of foreigners working in 3-D jobs (dirty, dangerous and demeaning) experience a myriad of racial and economic prejudice, that is largely overlooked as it isn’t documented in the blogosphere.
This is why movies like Bandhobi excel where the internet fails us. A 2009 indie flick about a frustrated and rebellious high school student who ends up becoming a friend of a migrant from Bangladesh who is desperate to receive his unpaid back wages. Literally translated as a “female friend” — the story follows the ups and downs of their friendship as two lonely souls, placed in a society that they feel disenfranchised with.
