Request for Submissions for Women Only Masturbation Zine!

Hello everyone. I suppose the first thing I should do before I go into request/consideration for submissions for my upcoming zine is to introduce myself. My name is Jackie. I am 25 years old and currently living in Orlando, Florida but originally a Midwest girl (who misses it!) I grew up in the outskirts of Green Bay and went to Catholic school my whole life until I went to college. I went to university for Women’s Studies, Literature in Translation (Norwegian) and LGBT Studies. Obviously if you want to know more about me I am more than willing to tell you.

help save the life of Ashraf Kolhari

Dear Feminist Activist,

Ashraf Kolhari, an Iranian mother of four, has been sentenced to death for allegedly having sex outside of wedlock. Kolhari was given this brutal sentence for having an affair after the Iranian court system refused to grant her a divorce from her husband. The stoning could be carried out at any time.

Please, act now by writing to the Iranian government and the United Nations, demanding that Iran stop the cruel practice of stoning and commute Ashraf Kolhari's death sentence.

According to the Islamic Republic of Iran's penal code, women must be buried up to their chest and stoned in a manner that increases the victim's suffering and prolongs her death. Stones are deliberately chosen so they will “not be large enough to kill the person by one or two strikes; nor should they be so small that they could not be defined as stones.” Eight other women in Iran reportedly await the same fate as Kolhari.

We urge you to take this time to write to the Iranian authorities and the United Nations, asking them to save Ashraf Kolhari's life and to abolish the practice of death by stoning.

In 2003, members of the feminist community worldwide protested the stoning of Amina Lawal – and it worked! Lawal, a Nigerian single mother, was also convicted of sex out of wedlock. With the help of feminist supporters, Lawal's death sentence was overturned. The feminist community does have the power to save women's lives!

Please join together, once again, to protest death by stoning and to protect the dignity and integrity of women's lives across the globe.

For Women's Lives,

Eleanor Smeal

This Britney Spears Bootleg is somehow OK?

xpost from

Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston

A ripoff sculpture of Britney Spears giving someone a blowjob would be wildly popular, but would it be art, or would it be commercial porn, derivative porn, or exploitative porn?

A rhetorical question, to be sure, but I find it fun to answer them. My answer is "depends on the artist, yes, maybe, yes."Collapse )

Women's Sexuality

My wife and were talking this morning and the question came up if women today were still sexually oppressed or if they have better opportunities to express themselves sexually. There was a time when if a woman express her sexual desires she was considered a slut, has that changed overall or is there still an oppression of female sexuality in our society?
