From Obey Website:
UNIVERSAL PERSONHOOD

The goal of the Universal Personhood poster is to promote peace, equality, and humanity. The title “Universal Personhood” is inspired by the fact that many Arab countries have traditionally discriminated against women, but have progressed to acknowledge women as having “equal personhood”. Most Arab countries now allow women to vote, a right not secured by women in the U.S. until 1920. Discrimination against women is not isolated to the Arab nations and the whole world could use a reminder that women have equal personhood. However, I titled the poster Universal Personhood to add another layer to the message. The western world has an irrational fear of Arabs, especially Muslims and when Arab civilians are killed their lives don’t seem to be given the same value as westerner’s lives. This attitude enables systematic discrimination. I find the notion appalling that all Arabs and Muslims are treated as inferiors and enemies because a minuscule number of Muslim extremists have committed acts of terror. By that same logic, Arabs should consider all American’s enemies because of the Arab civilian casualties in wars and drone strikes. As we all know, the extreme acts of the U.S. government do not reflect the desires or ethics of all Americans. I’d like to see a very basic assumption that ALL people deserve respect and human dignity. Let’s look at everyone as having the basic status of “Universal Personhood” and let them only be judged by their individual actions rather than generalized prejudice.

The offset sold out while the Star Letterpress was up, sort of funny considering people actually clicked that instead and bought it.
Same fudge, different drop.

Because it's at the top of the page...and Obey will put "universal personhood" further down the page...causing the script-runners to buy a bunch of "wind chases the sun" prints instead of the new print they THOUGHT would be added to the top of the page.

That was exactly what I did... Clicked the wrong one, but never actually made it to the cart before I clicked the right one. After the maylay of a checkout, I looked at my confirmation and noticed that it was there... Obey graciously refunded the mistaken print, so if you REALLY want one, I bet an email to Obey can resolve your need for an Immigration Reform Girl. :lol:
