4SKIN FTW: Circumcision Trauma Poem

4SKIN FTW: Circumcision Trauma Poem: "A warm and tight embrace, keeps me sheltered in this room. My safe and secure nest, I know this is your womb. I feel the surges pushing m..."

Feminist Coming Out can kiss my maternal ass!

I'm not really shocked my submission wasn't published on I am disappointed however that my voice is foreign and irrelevant because I have birthed babies, fed them from my breast, and while I will stand for a womans right to govern her own reproduction, I talk more about her right to govern her own childbirth. 

Tolerated Submission for a Faithful Childhood

Let me start out by saying I am not raising a racist. I am raising a feminist. 

We live in a very multi cultural area in Southern Canada with the majority of new immigrants being from the Middle East. The covering of a woman’s head is something I see everyday and it is indeed based on religious values and morals first and foremost. We are NOT talking about a cultural tradition. That said, every organized religion today has roots in misogyny, with perhaps the exception of Buddhism. I submit some of my favorite quotes from both the Qur'an and the Bible.

A Feminists view on public breastfeeding harassment

The harassment women face when nursing their babies in public has more to do with societies lack of respect for women, and knowledge of their biology, than it does with societies use of breasts and sex to sell things.

There is no denying the sexual aspect of breasts. Breasts are the secondary sex characteristics of a female human, like facial hair on a man. A sign of maturity and fertility. They develop before we have babies so as to attract a man. Plus, they're FULL of nerve endings! Even in cultures where breasts are never 'forbidden' (a blueprint for attraction) and there is no sense of shame surrounding them, men still like to lick them. It's normal. It's really ok even, some women are even lucky enough to achieve breast orgasms. I know two actually. Neither has volunteered to show me how, however.
