Why can't they teach girls the benefits of orgasms...or that the clitoris has 8000 nerve endings specifically for sexual pleasure? Why don't they bring up MASTURBATION if they want kids to avoid sex? Oh, wait...Joycelyn Elders tried that right before Bill Clinton fired her from the White House.

koffee, I was going to post that exact link!

Also, don't forget that those of us who engaged in premarital sex are the equivalent of people's spit collected in a cup and why would anyone want to drink from that cup, ever?

So, did you know that all you non-virgins out there are like "candy that has been spit out" and "used toothbrushes" and an old dried up rose that has lost it's beauty?

This may be going on in a public school abstinence-only proggram near YOU. (Funded by your tax dollars).

Children killed, mutilated and tortured for being "witches". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbDu0-K9cPk

This is actually starting to happen more and more to adults and children all over the world, like some sort of epidemic. Very young children have had nails pounded into their skulls, lye poured on their faces and some have been buried alive...somtimes by their own mothers.

Fucking hell yeah, sister! I honestly feel that we are still in some sort of repressed dark age when it comes to safe contraceptives.

I remember a friend of mine who could not tolerate birth control pills...but she was very fertile...she used several methods of BC at once, (and she used them religiously) but still repeatedly became pregnant.

It was years before she made the connection that her BC caused her to have yeast infections...and the yeast infection creams caused her condoms and BC creams to be less effective. I'm sure her doctors saw her as some lazy slut who just kept having abortions out of carelessness.

Another scary thing: we assume that pharmaceuticals and lab products have excellent quality control and that each of our pills in a perscription is identical in chemical structure. But when an independent company tested pharm products...they found some products were worthless and some genuine. This is actually part of the reason that "the sponge" was taken off the market. The factory had contaminated the sponges with bacteria-laden water.

So, today I learn "polyisoprene" IS SYNTHETIC LATEX. There are 3 "latex free" condoms on the market. Several online sources state that most "latex allergies" are actually allergies to proteins in plant-durrived latex. Polyisoprene is a polymer created in a lab & does not contain proteins found in plant latex.

Durex (Bare)& Lifestyles (SKYN....[eeeew]) both make theirs out of polyisoprene. Trojan Supra is Polyurethane which sounds ok until you read the box. Supras are lubed with "water based" lube --- or, sugary yeast food.

1 - Making a product for hyper-sensitive people out of essentially the same compound they have a reaction to and not labeling it as such is reprehensible. Be honest and clear. I read the stinking box word for word & there was NO mention anywhere of polyisoprene's similarity to latex.

2 - Water based lube is the most readily available lube available. Most drugstores & grocery stores carry it. It also causes extreme yeast infections & discomfort. I feel passionately that this stuff SHOULD NOT be on the market. I am so sure most people who buy it don't realize what they are getting. I'm sure this stuff causes tons of unreported infections - are people who buy lube at a grocery store instead of a specialty shop going to feel comfortable speaking with a doctor about their oozing inflamed genitals? Unless it gets real bad, I don't think so. I feel like women are being ripped off & their health is being harmed.

3 - I think reactions to these products are grossly underreported. I'm sure many women are ashamed to talk about such reactions. The medical establishment does not help. When visiting a physician after having an allergic reaction, they demanded I get full STD screening (all of which came back negative), tried to insinuate the increased white blood cell count (caused by my copper IUD) might be indicating an infection, sent me off with a treatment for a yeast infection (which I didn't have). After dealing with such discomfort who wants to spend more time thinking about it by trying to get a hold of someone at the company.

I'm generally a pretty calm person but I feel really angry & betrayed by physicians who clearly think someone low income and unmarried is a dirty whore. And by companies that create products that are so bad for peoples bodies.

I read the article. Terrible! Their fate is their family. Glad that isn't the case in my life, although it is not to compare to their situation. The horror of not being able to decide for your own. I can't imagine what they have been put trough before they made the dicision to set themselves on fire.
It needs a whole shifting of culture to prevent this from happening in the future. I wonder how many decades it would take. Or should I say ages?

Also, Afghan women self-immolating to avoid grim futures.

Slideshow of burned Afghan women. This is pretty horrific, if you are even a little sensitive, DO NOT LOOK.

Wow, that case is a total nightmare and I have no idea what I'd make of it. This is why sex games need to be negotiated beforehand. I disagree with the women's groups that consenting to sex while unconcious would set back the women's movement 20 years but I agree that consent can be removed at any time & that should be respected. Had the couple agreed previously that all sex acts would be negotiated? Did they both understand that a planned safe word would be useless if one partner was unconcious? Ugh, this is making my head hurt, too.

Consenting to some BCP/erotic asphyxiation is one thing, but this is kinda hairy:

The Supreme Court of Canada on Monday will consider whether an Ottawa woman, who had admittedly kinky sex with her longtime partner, was a victim of sexual assault when he sodomized her against her will while she was passed out, even though she had agreed to asphyxiation.

Firstly, I think that it's quite telling that this woman waited to use the breach of trust as a chit in her bid to get custody of their kid. Then she recanted?! And now it's become a HUGE clusterfuck of privacy issues, consent, etc, etc. The whole thing is just plain fucked up.

Secondly, I don't like the idea of the courts dictating what one can/cannot do in one's own bedroom, I can't understand how this has gotten that far. She only gave permission for the choking, not a toy up the tushie. Violation is violation, but where does one draw the line? Common sense, to me anyways, says that you don't stick anything up anybody's nether regions awake OR asleep without a prior conversation & express permission. Period. Kissing/amorously touching an asleep partner isn't the same as involuntary object rape while being voluntarily choked out. Had this been me, I can say I would most certainly have been REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY PISSED & ended my association with the person in question, but I would NOT have gotten the authorities involved. Especially as a ploy to discredit the father of my child during a custody dispute.

This reminds me of an old Dan Savage article (I tried to find it in his archives, but I just kept getting distracted!) about a woman with a somnophiliac boyfriend. When the woman was awake, she consented to being fucked in her sleep to please her partner. But once she'd fall asleep & he'd try to do the deed, her body would cower away from him/she'd mewl in her sleep. This, of course, turned him off. I can't remember what his response was, but it got him a flurry of mail from people crying rape. I know this is somewhat fuzzier than the article above, but it's the same territory. She consented to sleep fucking, but once asleep her body said hell no.

I know I've mentioned it elsewhere that I find somnophilia to be a disturbing fetish, lesser than say, drugged/passed out/Andrew Luster style date rape, but still icky. I'm generally creeped out by things that remove consent & are basically about violating somebody that is vulnerable. "Sleep creep" porn is just awful on so many levels. I know the "models" are only pretending to be a sleep, but the idea of some guy sneaking into my bedroom at night to fondle & eventually fuck my unconscious form gives me nightmares. Especially when I consider what kind of sick place somebody has to come from (Not necessarily a somnophile) to want to have sex with somebody that cannot participate. All kinds of control issues not to mention a likely disregard for women as people & not just a series of fuckable holes.

This shit makes my head hurt. I've poked this post with a stick several times, so I'd make sure to refresh should anybody want to respond.

HO. LEE. FUCK! Woman suing doctor for removing her genitals. A little more digging led to information saying that she had a small, pre-cancerous lesion on one side of her vulva. A FULL vulvectomy? Is pretty much a LAST CHANCE scenario kind of operation when a woman has cancer, FMG, HPV, etc. You do not remove the whole of a woman's outer genitals INCLUDING her clitoris for a mere lesion. A couple articles claim that the doctor told a nurse that the woman no longer needed her clitoris as she was 58 & her husband was deceased. Y'know, because she's old & since her hubby is dead she would no longer be interested in any kind of sexual pleasure. Great googly moogly!

Bride Stealing, seriously, still a problem in Chechnya. I was aware that this happened, I mean, the whole wedding thing is steeped in weird historical anti-woman trappings, but just up & kidnapping a woman? Then negotiating with her family & an imam to keep her? WTF?

Okay, this is just weird: OBGYN BRANDS woman's uterus AFTER hysterectomy. WTF? Why brand medical waste with the patient's name? Why? It's going into a biohazard bag to be disposed of. And how did he manage to burn her while he did it & HOW was it a "friendly gesture"? Weirdo.




Actually, I recently learned that after you have a hysterectomy, or a baby...the hospital usually sends the placenta, uterus, misc. medical waste to the pharm. companies so they can make hormones with it. Since it's medical waste, they don't have to ask our permission for this. This idea really disturbs me. Then if you ASK for your fucking placenta to put it into your compost or bury it in your garden, they act like you're going to eat it. Sometimes hospital staff will even freak out and call in the social worker to "talk" to you.

OOOOOPS! I almost forgot about this story about Teresa Lewis' execution. This is another one that has had media hopping, mostly because of Teresa's IQ being barely above the limit restriction. Feminist media has been particularly in a frenzy because the men involved that actually carried out the murder only received life sentences while the woman that plotted it received the death penalty.

Personally, I am against the death penalty: it's not a crime deterrent & with the appeals process, it is VERY VERY VERY EXPENSIVE.

On a positive note, About fucking time! We shall see.

I stumbled upon this article on Campaign Sexism & it's fallout the other day & found it very interesting. It certainly raised some questions within me.

I am not crazy about the idea that all female candidates deserve my support just because a blow to a female candidate is a blow to all woman-kind, especially with the example the article used, Christine O'Donnell. While I disagree with the misogyny/sexism aimed at O'Donnell, I do still think she's a crackpot & there is no way I'd vote for her if I were from Delaware, woman or not.

There was also this piece on Jez about how feminists do not have to defend O'Donnell.

And in other feminist political news, Hillary Clinton wore a butterfly hairclip to the UN & the world imploded. dry.gif

I swear if it's not one thing . . .

Rave Gang Rape videoed/photographed by various people on phones, put on internet. Of course, NOBODY is coming forward to help this young woman because, hey, it's technically child porn. Let the girl be victimized over & over again as long as you cover your own ass!

As far as I am concerned, every single person that recorded this without trying to help is just as guilty as the rapists. They deserve jail time & their pictures in newspapers & online so the world can see what pieces of shit they are.
