Forced child labor is on the rise according to a new report from risk analysis firm Maplecroft. The UK firm examined 197 countries and found that around 40 percent were classified under the “extreme risk” category. Not surprisingly, conflict-torn countries and authoritarian regimes topped the list.

Colorado high school student Sydney Spies was banned from her yearbook for submitting this photo as her senior portrait. The photo was rejected by student editors and the administration at Durango High School for being too sexy. “We are an award-winning yearbook. We don’t want to diminish the quality with something that can be seen as unprofessional,” said the student editor. But Sydney is not accepting the decision to leave her out of the yearbook just because she’s wearing a scarf around her breasts (or is that a tube top?) and tooching her booty. She’s decided to stage a protest to fight for her freedom of expression. Her meeting with the principal is forthcoming. I am in sheer awe of how good she looks in her senior portrait. I was fat with acne in mine. If I had any business wearing a scarf as a top, maybe I would have. But then again … it’s not really my style. [Dlisted]
So what do you think? Is Sydney’s pic too racy or should her photo be allowed in the yearbook?
Here’s something we didn’t expect: a pro-abstinence Nicki Minaj parody called “Super Grace”! It’s based on “Super Bass” and the Bible, and Jesus Christ himself gets thanked in the comments. Future civilizations will no doubt pour over lyrics like “He’s waiting for the band / He’ll just hold my hand … I want to be a wife but I must wait / oh no no no no / I have to wait / Christian boys got my heartbeat running away” wondering what they mean.
While “Super Grace” is certainly better than any youth group project I ever did, I almost hate telling these youngsters — whoopsies! — abstinence-only sex ed doesn’t actually work. [Popdust
