Global Population to Reach 7-Billion…Due to Mandatory PIV

by FCM

womens bodies as something to be consumed. that about says it all.

as most people probably know by now, we are are predicted to hit the global population milestone of 7-billion on 10/31/11.  will anyone remember those digits like we remember 9/11?  will this ruin anyones halloween?  doubtful.  although imagining the standard halloween fare playing out this year, whereby so many men dress up as women and women dress like “sluts” does kind of put an ironic point on it.  as if “mens gender role” and their alleged inability to escape it in real life is of any concern to anyone, rather than the fact that male-bodied persons are sticking their dicks into women around the globe with full entitlement and no remorse.  and as if womens “prudishness” in real life and womens timeless, global resistance to PIV is a hurdle to be overcome, when PIV is known to cause unwanted pregnancy and women around the world report that their resistance is largely ineffective anyway, where men do whatever they want to women no matter how the women feel about it.  dont mind me, i surpassed mere cynicism 3 days ago.  every once in awhile we abuse “irony” and go right to living in a cartoon.

[August Bebel, Woman and Socialism, 1883]

Juliet Mitchell’s thesis is presented in two parts, the first part is a pencil-sketch summary of political context and history at the time of writing, tracking the launch of the 60s women’s liberation movement in England. Like north-america WLM arose from within a context of various leftist political movements, although UK women’s experiences diverged somewhat from US women’s experiences.
