A last minute entry for the latest "t-shirt revolution challenge":http://www.redbubble.com/groups/t-shirt-revolution/challenges/9923-social-conscience.
I was prompted to make this tee while reading about "Dr Charles Teo":http://www.abc.net.au/austory/content/2003/s932241.htm, the controversial but well known neurosurgeon who's had quite a bit of media attention in Australia. It got me thinking about how our magazines and newspapers are usually filled with stories of z grade celebrities and pop starlets but there are so many truly incredible people who are rarely as celebrated.
I don't want to get all "Daily Mail" on you but sometimes I can't help feeling that celebrity culture is creating "a generation of women who think Jordan is a role model":http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/showbiz/article-23517161-details/We+want+to+be+just+like+Jordan:+Shocking+stories+of+teens+who+want+to+follow+in+the+glamour+model%27s+footsteps/article.do and aspire to careers as glamour models. Maybe if we gave a bit more air time to the true heroes in this world, like the people who are saving lives and pioneering new medical technologies, they'd at least be aware that there are other options.
