I became aware of Sephora selling a lipstick by Kat Von D which has designated a colour as "celebutard" when talking with a self advocate who was really upset about the use of the 'r word' in that way. She said, "You need to do something about it." We sat down together and talked. I said that she and I both had responsibilities in responding. I do not advocate for her, I advocate with her. We outlined some strategies. I told her about petitions that could be set up on line - she doesn't have a computer so she asked if I could do that part. I said I could. She decided to write a letter, copy it, and take it into both Sephora stores that she knows. She also decided to send her letter to friends and get them to take it in too ... So we both have our tasks. She left determined and realising that I didn't need to do anything for her - even more that it was great to do this with each other.
I've never done an on line petition before ... but here it is ... Sephora Petition ... please join us in expressing concern and outrage.
They didn't expect this?
