I CAN’T FORGET WHAT HAPPENED BUT NO ONE ELSE REMEMBERS floats in the reflecting pool as call to create national memorial to survivors of rape and abuse.
Tonight, right now, over two thousand infuriated Irishmen and Women have gathered outside the Dáil in protest over the death of Savita Halappanavar, who died of septicaemia in Galway University Hospital after she had a miscarriage. They protest over our governements failure to legislate for the X Case.
This was a protest organised over a matter of hours. The response has been overwhelming.
Ireland needs a change. All these people are there to voice this chance.
Absolutely horrified by this story. Sickened and upset.
will always reblog this.
Less Violence, More Orgasms
A muslim woman protesting the burka. in some countries, muslim women are raped and beaten for showing even their noses and mouths. in some places, they get their hands chopped off for showing their wrists, or looking at a man.
Normally I don’t post any nudity but this needs to be reblogged.
Neither do I, but agreed, this needs to be known.
I totally agree with these guys. There is a difference between porn and protesting. People should know what these brave brave woman are doing in the name of equal rights.
Okay I’m fairly certain these are women in France or another EU country protesting for their right to wear the burqa, after it had been banned.
No one should dictate how a woman can or can’t present herself. But that also means stepping back and not imposing your first conclusion (woman in burqa=oppression) onto a situation that you only see from the outside. Please.
Sunday 10-Jun-2012 FEMEN arrived in Hamburg’s red-light district Reeperbahn with painted faces and wearable sex toys. They moved from Spielbudenplatz to Herbert Street, their bodies painted with Swastikas and Hitler mustaches, gesturing their way down the streets in similar fashion to Hitler’s regime nearly 70 years ago. As the women marched, they were reportedly chanting, “Sex slavery is fascism.”
politisierung der sexualität vs. sexualisierung der politik xiii
At yesterday’s Tea Party rally in Boston, protestors from Occupy Wall Street and Join the Impact MA shouted down Uganda’s “Kill the Gays” architect, Scott Lively’s, address to the crowd about the dangers of “faggots.” During the non-violent culture clash Boston’s finest stepped in to rough up the young queers and their supporters. Photographer Paul Weiskel captured this young man getting choked for holding a dangerous object - a pink wig. Here’s his account of the incident:
Hi, This is a picture of me. The “pale violet material” I’m holding was a wig I was wearing that a Tea Partier had just knocked off my head. I was asking the tea partier to explain to me why he thought it was okay to knock my wig off (“My hand slipped”, he replied sarcastically) when the officer came up and said something along the lines of “okay, take your shit and get out of here” and shoved me a few feet. I turned to him and said “Don’t push me”. he replied “Don’t push you?!” then did this. You can decide yourself if this was deserved or not.
A, was this your protest?
Yes it was. I like to think of Boston as a happy utopia that I escaped to from the evil, queer-bashing South, so it freaks me out when reality checks like this happen.
Femen in Paris.

Les Femen demandent la démission du président ukrainien Victor Yanukovych qui aurait fait de la publicité pour le tourisme sexuel en Ukraine. Celles-ci voudraient créer un parti et arriver au pouvoir.
