This happened earlier this week, and the world died from all the cute.
It was announced earlier this week that Ashley Graham would be the first-ever plus size model in Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit edition. Then it turned out that she’s actually in an ad, not the magazine itself. But it turns out plus-size model Robyn Lawley actually will be featured in the issue. And that’s awesome!

How much leeway do you give an older book before you decide it’s too racist/sexist/whatever? Bothari43 encountered this problem with Andre Norton’s mystery Sneeze on Sunday, published in 1953. This "meh" mystery doesn’t live up to Norton’s science fiction novels - thanks to Bothari43 for taking the bullet on this one - but it generated a valid question, "…when is it forgivable because ‘they didn’t know any better,’ and when are you just done reading?"
