Hello, whoever may be reading this. I just joined the community, although it seems to be a little bit deserted (which is unfortunate, but the only way to get it up and running again is for people to join and post, so here I am anyway). I'm still pretty young (not quite 21) and admittedly uneducated in the ways of politics. My stance on feminism tends to be more the "social-politcal" rather than governmental and corporate-political. I don't know much about things like the World Bank and how they affect women, but I'm vehement about changing the way the lgbt community, working mothers, and victims of rape (to name a few) are treated in our country, our states, our cities, our neighborhoods. Online, I go by "Kitty" or "Neko" if you care to know my name (I try to avoid using my real name online as much as possible for safety issues--there are a lot of creeps out there, you know, and I've had issues with stalking/invasion of privacy before).
That little introduction aside, I have a book recommendation. I've recently finished re-reading the book Cunt by Inga Muscio
. Every time I read this book, my life changes a little bit for the better; I become a little stronger, a little more self-assured, I love myself a little bit more. It's an amazing book which I suggest everyone reads if they haven't already.
Also, while I have a fairly nice collection of "women's studies" books, I'm always open to finding and reading more. So, if anyone has any suggestions for me, I would love to look into them. =) The same goes for any news publications, as finding a news paper (ANY newspaper at all, even those which are biased and overtly conservative) has become something akin to stealing the Hope Diamond in my town. I've recently stopped watching TV, so I'm looking for other ways to get my fix of news and entertainment.

I take offense...
A little over one week ago, a charming, beautiful and pretty much unknown woman walked into our lives.
For days, the media surmised over who would be John McCain's running mate.
Little did we know, Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska would come to be that pick.
Since John McCain made his choice, Sarah Palin has been introduced to the brutality of the media. She has realized that being on the national political scene is not the same as being the mayor of a town of 9,000 in rural Alaska.
Since yesterday, we have been going on and on about how there are these rumors of people stating that Sarah Palin might not be ready to lead the country while balancing five children. Well, personally, I think that stance alone is ridiculous. However, I have yet to see where anybody related to Barack Obama's campaign has stated this. If you do the research, it was actually Dr. Laura, a scary right wing woman, who brought this up.
We have been hearing the Republicans cry "sexism". They have a lot of good points. Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin's candidacies have definitely shown us (well, those who were blindly unconvinced) that sexism is alive and well in American society. But, before we the people start allowing them to use a really serious social problem for their political gain, let's do a little analysis.
The views of Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin
Senator John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin both have very, very anti-choice views.
Senator John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin do not support Lesbian and Bisexual womens' right to form civil unions.
Senator John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin do not support Family Planning efforts involving sex education.
Senator John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin do not support Science. Instead they support creationism.
So what do these views have to do with sexism?
Well, the political ramifications of the above policies are serious. The policies would be disasterous for women in the US and across the globe. So, yes, sexism is present in the media. But how dare the McCain campaign use it as a means of political gains when the woman crying sexism supports some of the most sexist ideas around?
The Republican National Convention
If you watched some of the Republican National Convention, you would have noticed something very striking. There were hardly any minority women! There were a few black men in the crowd. However, the majority of people there were white men and women. Many of the men in the crowd were holding signs that said things like the following:
"Sarah Palin is a babe!"
"The Hottest VP in the World!"
"We love our HOT VP!"
How can the McCain campaign cry sexism (rightly so, indeed) when they did nothing to address the rhetoric from above. Does the objectification of this woman mean nothing to anyone? Is that the best we can do is accuse the media of sexism and then not look within to realize how we might be our greatest own enemy?
Now let's talk overall strategy...
For days we have been hearing people from the right, left, middle and outer space talking about how Sarah Palin was such a good political strategy. Well, I beg to differ.
I think the political concept of choosing a woman is what they were aiming for. Unfortunately, they chose the wrong woman. The fact that she is the wrong woman has nothing to do with her ethics violations. It has a lot to do with the base of women the McCain campaign needs to reach out to. Sarah Palin has done exactly what I predicted. She has motivated the right wing. She has pumped up the conservative radical right wing base. However, that's exactly who DIDN'T need to be motivated to win this election. Frankly, they never would have voted for Barack Obama in the first place. Some might have voted for Barr, but the majority of them would have went with McCain. John McCain needed to appeal to the Hillary Clinton women who felt shunned by the Barack Obama pick. What the McCain campaign fails to realize is that most of these women loved Hillary because of her amazing accomplishments in fighting for women's rights including the right to reproductive freedom. For the majority of those women, this issue is a huge one. The McCain campaign clearly did not think about the intelligence of these women. These are smart women who know what they want. They know politics. They know who is right and who is wrong. These women were not and will never be swayed to the McCain campaign simply because Palin is a woman.
If the McCain campaign was going to tokenize a woman for president (barf!), they should have chosen a pro-choice Republican governor. That might have played very well.
Now let's talk convention strategy...
Sarah Palin has spent the past week fighting off media coverage of all the skeletons in her closet. They have scrutinized the inconsistencies between her views and her actual life. What was needed at this convention was to move away from the negativity she has witnessed. She needed to talk about what a McCain/Palin country would look like! Instead, she chose to spend 40 minutes ripping into Barack Obama. This was more time that was wasted. This was precious time they could have used to show voters that they actually have a plan. The country is used to people ripping into Barack Obama. He has endured it for a long time and is used to it. It simply is not something that will be effective in swaying people who are facing real-life difficulties. People didn't want to hear about how unqualified this "community organizer" was. They wanted to hear about how you will help them in face of the subprime mortgage crisis. People did not want to hear smug comments about the stage at the Democratic National Convention, people wanted to know what the government will do to make sure their kids will have healthcare.
Honestly, for all of those people falling over themselves out there over Sarah Palin's speech last night, just stop! It did nothing but rally the supporters ALREADY in the room. However, i'm not sure it moved the people listening from their living rooms in desperate need of help.
I'm really sorry but rich white Americans like John McCain and Sarah Palin have had their 8 years!
I remain unconvinced that the McCain/Palin ticket is or will ever be effective, not just as an Obama supporter, but also as an American.

books for 2nd grader
I just agreed to start tutoring my friend's 2nd grade sister in reading. I've only taught secondary English but I know I can handle this - I just need a little guidance with materials. She is going to be repeating the year due to her poor reading skills. He says that she loves fantastical stories...especially "princess" stuff. Can anyone recommend good books for the 2nd grade level that might catch her interest?
Anything romantic/fantasy would be good. Also, I feel it's my duty as a role model to introduce her to stories with stronger heroines that aren't always the typical "damsel in distress" which I think sends a horrible message to little girls if that's all they are exposed to (and my friend agrees). I know if it has the fantasy elements she likes she would still like stronger heroines since she refused to leave the room when her brother saw the japanese anime "Revolutionary Girl Utena
" which turns the typical fairy tale upside down.
Please post your suggestions ASAP so I can start collecting books!!!

What does everyone think of the idea of having a feminism forum? The forum would be about feminism, the many different types of feminism, and will be for discussion of ALL types of feminism. Yes, I am very aware that this community is a forum for feminism, however, there are more people interested in feminism out there that are not on livejournal. If I get enough heads up for the idea, I will make the forum. If I don't get many replies to this post, then I will NOT make the forum.
I am thinking of using proboards or invisionfree for the forum provider. If anyone is interested in helping me out with the forum: layout, ideas, or being a moderator on the forum, Please let me know by replying to this post. Also, The forum will be discussed outside of livejournal, so if you really want to help out, please leave your email address in a reply to this post OR you can email me. My email address is listed on my profile page and it is the hotmail address and not the yahoo address. Thanks!

What can be done ?
Saudi punishes gang rape victim with 200 lashes
A court in the ultra-conservative kingdom of Saudi Arabia is punishing a female victim of gang rape with 200 lashes and six months in jail, a newspaper reported on Thursday. The 19-year-old woman -- whose six armed attackers have been sentenced to jail terms -- was initially ordered to undergo 90 lashes for "being in the car of an unrelated male at the time of the rape," the Arab News reported.
But in a new verdict issued after Saudi Arabia's Higher Judicial Council ordered a retrial, the court in the eastern town of Al-Qatif more than doubled the number of lashes to 200.
A court source told the English-language Arab News that the judges had decided to punish the woman further for "her attempt to aggravate and influence the judiciary through the media."
Saudi Arabia enforces a strict Islamic doctrine known as Wahhabism and forbids unrelated men and women from associating with each other, bans women from driving and forces them to cover head-to-toe in public.
Word rape is not even in quran. Under sharia, a rape requires four male witness to be proved. And if a woman who complains of rape is herself charged with adultery if she does not produce four male witnesses and stoned to death. That was the case with Amina Lawal of Nigeria who was sentenced to stoning by Sharia court because she got pregnant and could not produce four witnesses. Only from a lot of world wide infidel pressure she was saved.

BBC: Is it OK for disabled people to go to brothels?
This strikes me as a really bizarre piece from the BBC. Is it OK for disabled people to go to brothels?
I'm having trouble finding excerpts from the piece that I want to highlight because, honestly, I'm not sure exactly what the piece is about. I can absolutely understand what is behind the perspectives presented by disabled people, but I think that my confusion arises from the title of the piece: Is it OK for disabled people to go to brothels?
What is the BBC asking?
Is it OK for disabled people, as opposed to non-disabled people, to go to brothels?
Is it OK for anyone
people to go to brothels?
Is there a difference between disabled and non-disabled people going to brothels?
I'm not sure, and would be interested in your thoughts. (Obviously, I welcome comments on the above and anything else you are thinking about this issue and/ or the piece.)( The piece is copied and pasted below the cut.Collapse )
