Dear Ass-wipe,

I posted you on http://www.womansavers.com for all the world to see how you cheated on me and hurt me emotionally and physically. I pray that you will never hurt another but I know because you are good looking and charming, another prey will fall trap in your web of lies.

Someday a greater power will judge you but until that time I will let the world know my story.

Forever Scarred

BRING CHILVARY BACK [17 Oct 2006|12:19pm]

It sucks now, in society. Men and Women are EQUAL but no, they are not. Women out number men, outnumber in opinions and out number in being single. WOMEN are now put on pedestals when men should be thanked for their hard work.
It's great that women are empowered but most women nowadays are BITCHES.
My customers that are women are awful , on a daily basis.

I am woman, and I wish men outnumbered women on the bus, at work, on the streets.... no wonder men are turning around and shooting their wives/girlfriends/mothers. Women are bitches!!!!!

Why is this background pink? Don't you know pink is a tool of the phallocracy to make womin feel like weaklings? Everytime a man looks at pink he thinks PINK = VAGINA = MUST RAPE. BY THE TIME YOU REFRESH THIS PAGE FIVE MORE WOMEN WILL HAVE BEEN RAPED BECAUSE OF PYNK. I DEMAND YOU CHANGE IT TO BLUE TO SHOW WE ARE JUST AS STRONG AND POWERFUL AS MAYLS.

Less Than Cool... [24 Mar 2005|06:44pm]

[ mood | rejected ]

So I'm in training with my local volunteer fire department (for now...schedule conflicts might make me reconsider), and a few days ago we were talking about the requirements for the state-administered test. Apparently, women get a MUCH longer time to complete the test (it's like an agility-ish test thingy...), PLUS women AND minorities get passed even if they have lower requirements. I'd understand the time thing if it was maybe a minute or two longer, but women get like 5 minutes more!! I was getting miffed since pretty much the whole examination test said that women had to have lower standards to pass. They didn't even get as rough a background check.

Alice Walker's The Color Purple [20 Mar 2005|11:30pm]
ms_sugarstar
Okay, so I've been given this coursework to do for my English Lit A Level and though I have my argument mainly sussed I'd appreciate a little help in expressing my viewpoint (particularly in the second point), if anyone's read the novel. Basically we were asked to respond to the following:

"Walker's message in "The Color Purple" has been summarised as "Sisterhood is beautiful, and Men stink". With reference to text and to other critics give your response."

Of course, I absolutely, categorically refute this statement and I will take great pleasure in dismantling this prick's criticism piece by piece. I have two major major bones of contention with it, as follows:


1. In the novel, Walker examines gender roles, and on many occasions and in numerous ways she dismantles them. Her message is pretty straightforward: men and women are not all that different, gender roles are restrictive and the tasks, activities and personality traits formerly attributed either to one gender or another exclusively can be enjoyed and shared by anyone regardless of gender.*

With this in mind (ie. Walker argues we shouldn't polarise the genders), for Walker to then turn around and imply that overall, women are completely one way (good) and men are the opposite (bad/evil) goes completely against her message in the novel and her political beliefs as a feminist.


2. While the novel does explicitly highlight women's oppression at the hands of men, there are enough positive representations of men to counteract the impression that men "stink". Anyone who doesn't agree is ignoring the fact that the novel is written by a Black Women about a Black Woman who faces oppression on account of the fact that she is a Black Woman. As an activist in both the Civil Rights and Feminist movements, as well as being a black woman herself, Walker is extremely well placed to comment on the oppression of black women. As I have mentioned above, she already expresses the view that men are oppressed by rigid gender roles, and by liberating women from their gender roles she automatically liberates men as well.

However, she is not a spokesperson for men, black or white.

I see Walker as part of the Third Wave of feminism - tellingly, her daughter Rebecca founded the Third Wave Foundation - and she definitely seems to place herself within it too by calling herself a "womanist" ie. a black feminist, distancing herself from the 2nd wave's domination by white, middle-class women and the tendancy to lump together all women together. A key element of modern 3rd wave feminism is that you cannot act as spokesperson for anyone else - a white woman cannot speak on behalf of a black women, straight people cannot speak on behalf of gay people, etc. Given this background, how can Walker possibly be expected to act as a representative of black men?

Any help would be much appreciated folks! Any points to add, any way I could have expressed it better, etc...

*(A few examples: Shug and Sophia don't conform to traditional expectations of women - Shug is sexually confident and outspoken, Sophia is physically and emotionally strong; Harpo enjoys domesticity and suffers when trying to conform to traditional masculinity; Albert sews; and some women hate cooking (Celie) while others love it (Shug))

So, damn the Man [04 Feb 2005|03:19pm]

I am posting because I thought you guys would be interested in a group of lesbian filmmakers. We have an award winning script and a GREAT team of talent and experience.

The problem: We are in North Carolina and it is a lesbian film. So when we did finally get funding we lost it.

So now, a grassroots approach: we are going to do this our own way.Just us as women, as lesbians and as filmmakers. Basically it's about getting to do what we want to do without bowing down or selling out to the men in the area with the money and the power. AND we have a plan:

We've started a website and are going to try to get people to donate ONE dollar a person and in return we will thank them by name in the credits...all 500,000 of them. We are also selling tops and undies to promote our cause, our art. The site is http://www.heroinefilms.net for those of you interested in helping our vision become reality.

Tuesday, October 19: U.S. National Women's Un-buying Day



Did you know that out of 500 corporations in the US only 3 are run by women?
And there are only 17 congress women. We make up 52% of the population.

This protest from buying anything will impact the economy and show how much of America we represent --and how little we're represented.

Please help spread the word.
