Steering the Sluts, Moar: 18-Year Old Male Anarchist Organizes Baltimore Slutwalk

by FCM

so here we are again.  another slutwalk, another sex-positive man organizing it, standing behind women (but not in a creepy way!) and supporting womens god-given right to be sexually penetrated by men.  now thats good faux-feminism!  and it gets even better than that: this particular dood as recently as earlier today went by the internet handle “molester” on internet forum “formspring”.  you know, because sexual assault is funny, and stuff and things.  alas, the women who allowed this dood to “help” them pull off slutwalk baltimore probably shouldve done a background check; or at the very least, followed the links he left on his facebook profile, where they wouldve learned about the “molester” thing.  oh well!  im not blaming the women, really; thats just what happens when you do feminist organizing with men.  you have to be super-extra vigilant, and they werent.

Bachmann, HPV Vaccines, & Female Credibility

by lishra

HPV vaccines have been a big political topic this week in the U.S. It all started at a Republican presidential debate when Michele Bachmann criticized Rick Perry’s executive order which mandated Gardasil for girls in Texas. Refreshingly, the framing of the issue was of pharmaceutical companies buying politicians, rather than the regular conservative line about how the vaccine makes girls turn slutty. This debate dust-up gained more ground when Bachmann began telling news outlets about a post-debate encounter with a woman who said her daughter was harmed by the vaccine. Because women have no credibility, and this story includes three females claiming harm, you can probably guess where this goes next.

Men Love “Sexism”

by Noanodyne

I don’t mean that they love to be “sexist,” although they do. Men love “sexism” because the very concept is a cover for and a distraction from what men really do to women. And some women want very badly for men to be part of feminism because they don’t understand that. It’s not that women who want men in the movement don’t understand that women are treated badly by men, they do get it, that’s the reason they’re feminists at all.

But to be a feminist and continue to believe that men will reform themselves is to believe that the problem really is “sexism” and that it can be defeated; that in turn requires that one not see what goes on behind the cover of “sexism.” Hand-in-hand with this is the hopeful idea that — of course! — once “sexism” is pointed out, the light will dawn for men and the lion will lie down with the lamb in a purely respectful way.

Or not.

Hef’s Fiance Runs Away; Bristol Palin Lost Virginity While Drunk

by FCM

i was tempted to call this piece “this week in rape culture” but unfortunately, these two stories, as noteworthy as they may (or may not) be, dont even begin the scratch the surface of rape culture, or what has happened this week “in rape culture” that we do and do not know about.

first, playboy mogul and liberal-dickwad patriarch hugh hefner’s fiance crystal harris calls off their wedding at the last minute…

by FCM

SlutWalk, Los Angeles apparently went off without a hitch yesterday, no thanks to hugo schwyzer who as an “organizer” apparently had to negotiate a last-minute “crisis” which was caused by the organizers not making sure all their permits were in order, and that their venue wasnt double-booked, before getting thousands of women to commit their time and energy to this project…

Feminism is the anti-Viagra?

by Loretta Kemsley
Who's the real rat? (artist: J Sharp)

Who's the real rat?

“Why do so many American women have difficulties in bed?” asks Ogi Ogas, co-author of A Billion Wicked Thoughts, and author of the article Why Feminism Is the Anti-Viagra: The neural circuitry of dominance and submission.

Ummm…the answer is obvious: Women have difficulty enjoying “sex” because it is solely defined from a male pleasure and male orgasm point of view.

Roseanne Barr Gave Anti-porn Slide Shows

by Guest Blogger

Guest Post by Sam from Genderberg

A few days ago I was telling FCM some surprisingly radical feminist factoids about Roseanne Barr I picked up from her latest book, Roseannearchy: Dispatches from the Nut Farm. Since it came up in the context of contributing to Radfem Hub I suggested a book review.  Hours later Ms. Barr scooped me on the story with her New York Magazine article.
