"Slut" is meant as a reappropriation in this context (auf Deutsch Geusenwort, du kennst das Wort vielleicht von den Negern vom Braunen Mob ;)).

Well, and FEMEN says they are agitating against sex tourism and prostitution. Thing is, though, that nude riots aren't much of a help in fighting both. On the contrary their "protest style" much more contributes to the degradation of women and the reduction on tits & asses that feminists and transgender preachers so much love. Same with "slut walks".

They are playing with this degradiation and try to change it into its opposite.

FEMEN try to reduce the problem on a point that isn't that big problem: Prostitution exists since people exists, the society have learned how to deal with it. The bigger problem is the sexualisation of the public spaces, of the medias, commerical life, television etc. There are many TV shows at the early evening hours where hot sex scenes can be seen, many adverts are explicite sexual. Naked people are everywhere in public spaces. Now even very little children shall be sexualiziesed in toddler pre schools..... That is no liberalization, that is criminal.

I don't believe in the goodwill of such groups, especially with regards to their financiers. Even if they have one what they are doing is an enormous fail then.

Hum, right. Pussy Riot f.e. is finanzed by the CIA trough back doors. FEMEN has maybe the same financier.

Have you seen these fine specimen? Nobody, no matter how depraved, wants to see those T&As.


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

Iceland's plan to ban Internet porn sparks uproar
  • The government is drafting plans to protect children from offensive images and sites, but opponents say the move amounts to censoring the Internet.
Quote: REYKJAVIK, Iceland — In the age of instant information, globe-spanning viral videos and the World Wide Web, can a thoroughly wired country become a porn-free zone? Authorities in Iceland want to find out.

The government of the tiny North Atlantic nation is drafting plans to ban pornography, in print and online, in an attempt to protect children from a tide of violent sexual imagery.

The proposal by Interior Minister Ogmundur Jonasson has caused an uproar. Opponents say the move will censor the Web, encourage authoritarian regimes and undermine Iceland's reputation as a Scandinavian bastion of free speech.

Advocates say it is a sensible measure that will shelter children from serious harm... more

Quote: Gunnarsdottir, the political adviser backing the ban, just hopes the emotional debate around the issue will cool down.

"I think we should be able to discuss the Internet with more depth, without just shouting censorship on the one hand and laissez-faire on the other hand," she said.

"Is it freedom of speech to be able to reach children with very hardcore, brutal material? Is that the freedom of speech we want to protect?" ... more

I love the hypocrisy around this. Neocon men used to be all dor banning porn untila FEMALE president of Iceland suggests it all of a sudden porn in freedom of speech.

I don't think it should be banned, but I don't think pictures constitute as any kind of speech. Freedom of speech, as I understand it, is being able to fully express your opinion without any authoritative law enforcement.

My little brother and I were actually talking about this earlier. We were talking about the revolting and degenerate website called "Best Gore" (I don't think I need to explain it; it's self explanatory). We both agreed that freedom of speech does not consist of graphic (or any kind of) pictures displaying horrendous brutality or injury.

I've yet to see anyone effectively counter THAT argument.

It seems to me that the parents should watch their kids better.
