Stupid Sex Tricks: Dept. of Unenforceable Laws, Ukraine

Straight from the Wide World of WTF, we get wind of some wildly stupid fetus fetishism from Eastern Europe:

“An incredible project of law was presented before the parliament of Ukraine: banning the missionary position in sexual relations.”

That was the headline on Actualidad RT. The authors of this controversial project of law explained . . . → Read More: Stupid Sex Tricks: Dept. of Unenforceable Laws, Ukraine

Dear Harper Government™: Fuck You. Love, Quebec.

And thanks so much for forgetting the Montréal Massacre, too. It only took you bastards 23 years to set us collectively back half a century. Bray-fucking-vo. Meanwhile, les Québécois(es) se souviennent:

On a day the government fulfilled a long-standing goal and saw legislation to destroy the federal long-gun registry set to receive royal assent, . . . → Read More: Dear Harper Government™: Fuck You. Love, Quebec.

Adrienne Rich has died

She was 82. Here is one of her many great, necessary poems that holds up a mirror to her own country:

Sleep well, great lady. Blessed be thy name!

I got my ballot, I got my Orange Crush.

Peggy Nash, here’s lookin’ at you.

Festive Left Friday Blogging: I’m a whut, I’m a whut, I’m a WHUT?

Two nicely naughty young ladies play a lovely ditty for the Pigman. Say, maybe he can use THIS as bumper music, now that everyone he WAS using is telling him to fuck the hell off.

Happy Women’s Day. Have you found YOUR feminism today?

Don’t you love that ad? I sure do. It’s a timely reminder of just what we’re all up against. Here’s another:

ThinkProgress was being a little low-ball on the count there, because I spotted WAY more than just 70 sexist smears coming out of that juddering piehole. Didja notice that near the end, . . . → Read More: Happy Women’s Day. Have you found YOUR feminism today?

A few random thoughts about whores

Before we begin, a little mood music:

Ah. Thank you so much for that lovely music (and that uncharacteristic truthfulness), Mr. Limbaugh.

So, Rush…how’s it feel to be at the bottom of your own shit-avalanche for a change? Fun, eh? Yeah, you really had everybody going there, with your “absurdist” humor that isn’t . . . → Read More: A few random thoughts about whores

Heroes for Today: Sandra Fluke, standing tall for women

Watch this video in its entirety and see if you can find anything about this bright young woman that would justify the Pigman, Rush Limbaugh, in calling her a slut simply for asking that her Catholic university provide birth control pills to female students who need them for medical reasons:

Notice, too, how . . . → Read More: Heroes for Today: Sandra Fluke, standing tall for women

Stupid Sex (Hater) Tricks: Amend THIS, motherfuckers!

Actually, I think female orgasms should be written into EVERY constitution.

(You’ll note as well that the would-be legislators totally forgot the clitoris, which is made for nothing BUT pleasure, as it serves no reproductive purpose whatsoever. And that’s the way, uh-huh, uh-huh, I like it. Uh-huh, uh-huh.)

Who knows more about women’s health than women?

These guys do:

Women’s Health Experts Speak Out from Judd Nelson

Because when a middle-aged (or older) man tells you to put an aspirin between your knees, you know he knows what he’s talkin’ about. Right, ladies?

Zut alors! Plus de “mademoiselle”!

Ah, oui. C’est fini, l’ennui:

The term “mademoiselle” is about to disappear from French paperwork.

Under pressure from campaigners, the government has decided that women will not have to choose how to describe themselves on official documents.

Unlike men, women have been forced to choose between a married “madame” or unmarried “mademoiselle”.

Evo, the ladykiller?

It may be carnival time (and thus, the silly season) in Bolivia, but apparently some don’t find anything funny about it…or at least, not the way the president comported himself during Friday’s kick-off celebrations:

Opposition legislators and feminists criticized the Bolivian president, Evo Morales, for participating in a carnival party in which they sang . . . → Read More: Evo, the ladykiller?

Stupid (Anti-)Sex Tricks: The American Lie League, and other hilarious crapagandroids

Need a good laugh tonight? Here ya go:

Mmmmmm, penis cupcakes and vagina macaroons! Yummy!

Jezebel calls this “the most hilariously lewd thing you’ll ever see”, and they’re not far from the truth. This hysterical video inadvertently gives away the makers’ own creepy fetishes. Calling Planned Parenthood a pusher of sex-as-drugs-to-children, and then offering . . . → Read More: Stupid (Anti-)Sex Tricks: The American Lie League, and other hilarious crapagandroids

Stupid Sex(ist) Tricks: Why I will never be a vegan

Aside from the serious health concerns they blithely neglect to mention in their quest to turn the whole world vegan, PETA also engages in false, deceptive and highly offensive advertising that’s downright abusive to women:

There is so much wrong with this ad. What kind of man is so sexually out of control that . . . → Read More: Stupid Sex(ist) Tricks: Why I will never be a vegan

Romance or misogyny?

Sometimes, it’s SO hard to tell, eh?

No, this is not to make 18-year-olds look particularly appealing, or older-than-thou women especially alluring. It relies on some pretty mindless stereotyping of women of ALL ages.

And while we’re on the subject of mindless stereotyping, how about those romantic comedies? Most of them are . . . → Read More: Romance or misogyny?

OMG, Adele is adorable!

Pardon my gush, but it’s true. She really IS a doll. She’s funny, she’s unpretentious, she’s blessedly drama-free in spite of everything she’s been through (how many pop stars can you say THAT about?), and she’s smart and nice, too. Oh, and she’s got the cutest accent — says fink and froat for think . . . → Read More: OMG, Adele is adorable!

This is what same-sex marriage sanity sounds like

Isn’t it wonderful when human rights win out over simply toeing the party line? This is Maureen Walsh, a Republican state representative from Walla Walla, Washington, speaking out beautifully for same-sex marriage rights both as a widow with happy memories of her own marriage, and as the mother of a lesbian daughter, whose marriage . . . → Read More: This is what same-sex marriage sanity sounds like

Goodbye and good riddance

Two obnoxious, hateful, right-wing “family” things went bye-bye today: Karen Fucking Handel from the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and the last faint flicker of hope for Prop Hate in California.

I’m sure neither will be sadly missed.

No more fucking Pink Things

I am the daughter of a breast cancer survivor. And I have just sworn never again to buy another “Pink for the Cure” (or whatever they call it) thing.

Not that I don’t love my pink long-sleeved Columbia t-shirt, or my pink lipsticks (all 11 of ‘em), but this whole damn pink thing has . . . → Read More: No more fucking Pink Things

Pole dancing: for aficionados, it’s serious stuff

Jenyne Butterfly shows what a world-champion pole dancer looks like. No platforms, no sequins, no lingerie, no raunch; just really good (and seriously sexy!) stuff.

Yesterday, as part of my ongoing informal research into the world of a Mexican book I’m translating, I posted some videos of pole dancers in action. Apparently I’m not . . . → Read More: Pole dancing: for aficionados, it’s serious stuff

The art of the WHAT?

As I prepare to get cracking on my first-ever book-length Spanish-to-English translation (yes, congratulate me, kiddies, your auntie is going pro!), I found some videos while looking up an idiomatic phrase that just didn’t appear in either my Streetwise Spanish guide OR my gran diccionario. These illustrate exactly what I’ll be dealing with in the . . . → Read More: The art of the WHAT?

No means NO, no matter what

Marital rape: It’s not just “rough sex” or “role-playing”.

A young academic has been sentenced to four months in jail for sexually assaulting his wife during rough sex despite his claim that, in their dominant-submissive sexual role playing, “no” frequently meant “yes.”

The 33-year-old man, who cannot be identified to protect the anonymity of . . . → Read More: No means NO, no matter what

The Perfect Vagina

The perfect vagina from heather leach on Vimeo.

A hard-hitting documentary on an extreme form of plastic surgery and the physical and emotional damage it is doing to women and girls, as well as the outrageous demand (yes, from men!) for women with an unrealistic genital configuration.

It only takes a girl…

Hard truths and true hope. Girls know them.

Sanity comes ashore in Virginia

Q. How do you know when DADT is truly D-E-A-D?

A. When something like this happens, and nobody gets arrested.

The two women in the video are both petty officers in the US Navy. And as you can see, they’re glad and relieved to be out of the closet now, and no longer in . . . → Read More: Sanity comes ashore in Virginia
