A New Feminist Blog Site

My blog buddy RadGeek made me aware a new blog that celebrates feminism. I am one of the contributors. Appropriate called Feminist Blogs, is it "a community of weblogs by self-identified feminists, womanists, women's liberationists, and pro-feminist men. We syndicate our weblogs to raise awareness, bring together feminist voices, and promote cross-linking and discussion between feminist bloggers. Blogs are not just for boys, and we are building independent alternatives to the malestream media."

Head on over and make yourself welcome.

Hi. I am calling on feminists to FIGHT BACK.

Look: www.forgetmenotpanties.com

This is a Japanese company selling women's underwear that MONITOR them! They use technology to follow women for jealous men to control us! It is a civil rights violation. Please help me in boycotting them, and write to other women you know. I think this internet thing can help us fight this. It makes me so mad that men will try to control them by sneaking a GPS in their panties (without their consent) so they can know where we are 24 hours a day!

This is like the old chastity belts when men would LOCK THEIR WOMENS GENITALS to protect their "innocence". This is the year 2005. I am so angered.

Please join me in the fight!

Thank you,
Donna

The "Forget-Me-Not" panties site is a hoax site created for a "contagious media" contest. Read more about it in this Slate article:

http://slate.msn.com/id/2121384

"In a blink, a site I'd hardly noticed surged ahead in the standings. Forget-Me-Not Panties, a hoax page that offered futuristic, GPS-enabled chastity belts to concerned husbands and fathers, had become enormously popular overseas."

I am a reformed feminist. I now realise that it is a pointless division of humanity. It is like a negro college, or an Indian Casio, why the distinction, is'nt that what the holocost was all about and the KKK. Just because we carry less weight society has quasi come to accept it. Let's face it women, accept our role as cum recpecticals for the men, lets obey, trust, and repent our evil carpet licking ways, they know we are not as smart as them and the only ones with personalities are the ulgy, hariy ones. Which brings me to another point maybe it is rejection that has brought some of us to feminism. Would we not be up in arms if men openly declared Menism. Lets drop the double standard and take on our proper role in life. If you want to make a change email boraonly@dodgeit.com.

Hey, that Bora is not me! I am Bora and I am a guy and I am a feminist!

First, I know that Forget-Me-Not panties are a hoax. They fooled me for a little while.

Second, I know you aren't that Bora, coturnix. There's not a chance in Hell I would mistake you for something as lame as that.

Speak for yourself, sweetheart. You're the one who can't spell "ugly".
