If Barbie Were A Beard
Not to get too insensitive here, but did anyone ever really buy that Ken was straight? With legs so toned and bronze you’d think he came in third place at the Olympics for ribbon dancing, Ken’s sexuality–at least to Los Angeles-based photographer Jana Cruder–is questionable. Imagining Barbie and Ken’s domestic life together, Cruder reveals a less-than shiny side of one of the West’s favorite couples. Furtive glances at mischievous pool boys, overt narcissism and suburban discontent abound. Barbie’s some heavy stuff, man. Check out the whole spread at Feature Shoot before the drama hits the Hallmark Channel.
Meet The Gorilla Doctors Of The Democratic Republic Of The Congo
For those feeling a bit hopeless about the state of our environment and its non-human denizens, take solace in the Gorilla Doctors. This multi-national team works in the heart of the DR Congo, where they take care of sick and injured gorillas on the cusp of death.

Nevertheless, these doctors persist. Read more about their stories–and the gorillas they save–at The Guardian.
