Female Ejaculation can be up to 2 cups!

Thought this was pretty interesting stuff...Yes females do ejaculate, psychotherapist Lisa S. Lawless, Ph.D talks all about it in her movie. This art form is also known as the "g-spot's kissing cousin"
A lot of people are not aware of this woman's wonder but it is true and it does occur.

Pussy for Peace

March 24th Beantown hosted a peace rally in the commons. It was pretty sweet. There was music, a march, and random people coming together in support of bringing our troops home. It was a little intense at times but inspiring how people came together for humanity in an anti-war protest. My camera ran out of batteries and I only got to take like two pictures so they're not that great.

Chicago Cop = Royal Scumbag

Here is just another instance of violence against women. This is disgusting. Stop the Violence!

Some Sweet Stuff

For all of you ladies living in various metropolitan areas you may want to check out your DailyCandy. It's great for a girl on the go; to stay savvy with what's going down in their next of the woods with a daily email on things from fashion, nightlife, eats, etc. Although I can't afford most of it as I'm a broke college joke--it keeps me up to date on what I would be doing if I were a young professional in the Bean. Cute pics too.

India Arie - Video (Live)

love this's inspiration to be yourself.

Feminism is Unhealthy? Huh.

I would rather die sooner of equality, than live longer under oppression.

According to a a recent study in Sweden, gender equality is correlated to a lower life expectancy for both men and women.

BBBBs can climb ladders too

Yes this Big Butted Blonde Bitch can climb a ladder, in fact I even get paid to do so.
Background info: I work in retail (yeah fabulous I know), and have to lift shit, and straddle ladders as part of my job---but apparently some people just don't get it. On a daily basis people (men and women, but predominately men) constantly challenge my ability to do my job and I'm sick of it. For example I'm often asked, "Can someone help me get something that's up really high?" OKay...someone..and I look at the person that asks me are you kidding me? Apparently I must be a no one...or at least no one that is capable of actually helping a customer with something that is so high up. Give me a break, just because I am a woman doesn't me I can't climb a damn fact I would even argue that I am better at it that some of the guys--so deal with it.

The Outside In:Female Parkour

Parkour is pretty Hardcore.

Lesbians, feminists and transgender women band together

Transgendered women may be feminism's biggest allies. Although some radical feminists have been known to bash on transgender women, I don't believe this should be the case at all. Start breaking down these borders through banding together.

Feminism? What Cowboys?

Okay so I heard this song the other day and actually listened to Paula Cole's lyrics to "Where have all the Cowboys gone?" But I'm confused as to what this song really means? Are there any cowboys out there? And do I even want them if they do exist? Anybody..comments? What is this song really about?

Behind the locker room doors

There's something extremely liberating about a women's locker room...or maybe it was just because I was naked...hahaha. No, but seriously, when I'm there no one seems to notice or care that I haven't shaved in a few days. There's a mutual respect and comfort found in that locker room. When I'm in there my mind and body are somehow aligned, and I am at peace with all my imperfections.

Ouch Obama Lays the sMACk down on Hillary

Barak Obama bashes on Hillary Clinton hard on this youtube ad. As this advertisement is geared to get woman thinking about a different future, and to "vote different"...outside the box if you will.

Women, War and PTSD

“I didn’t really start having mental issues until we got home,” says Keli Frasier Army reservist, who watched her squad leader die in Iraq.

It seems women are more likely to be diagnosed with PTSD than men who have been to Iraq.

Read more of this article The Women's War from the NY Times which speaks about women's experiences with PTSD after returning from war. There's a multimedia video that's pretty interesting too.

Maybe we want a one night stand--sorry you just can't handle that

Yes here we go again people--the constant double standard....Men get laid and they're "the man", women get laid and they're a "slut". Don't you think it's possible that a woman can actively pursue an attractive guy, take him home, use him as a piece of meat (with proper protection of course) and send him on his way the next morning, without even knowing his name nor wanting to? Laura Sessions Stepp author of Unhooked seems to think one night stands are more of a guy thing. I thought about actually getting a copy of this book to see what this woman had to say for herself, but I became too frustrated just from reading what others had to say about her.

Not that I'm encouraging men to be used as meat, or women to seduce and sleep with every guy they meet. I'm just saying, sometimes you (women and men) just want to get laid.

Why do people care so much about other people's sex lives? What others do behind close doors is no one's business but their own. Perhaps those that stay preoccupied with others aren't getting what they need out of their own relationship.

Dove Pro-age Campaign

This Ad has a great mindset behind it.

Don't get your Vickies' panties in a bunch

Fraudulent charges are being disguised as Victoria Secret purchases. Victoria Secret Escapes is secretly ripping off consumers by withdrawing from peoples' accounts, which on your account overview just looks like a charge for Victoria Secret. It happened my roommie, she didn't notice until recently after a second charge was made to her account(she didn't realize the first time because it's not like it's hard to spend $1oo at Vickies). Lesson of the day...keep an eye on debit/credit charges.

Since when is VAGINA a bad word?

I just want to find these three young ladies and tell them how phenomenal they are for standing up for their right to use the word VAGINA. Apparently these high school juniors were suspended for preforming The Vagina Monologues?!?! Give me a break people. Vagina is not a vulgar word. The Vagina Monologues although a little out there for some people is not half as bad as the shit you see on TV--put on a music video for crying out loud.

So you're not allowed to use the word vagina...which body part is next?

I'm just shocked that they were really kicked out of class for this...ridiculous. Feminism and questioning authority is education. The community should rethink those on the Board of Ed.

Yes! Feminism can be SEXY

Artist Janelle Rodriguez, NY local currently resides in the Bean. I'm no art buff but, Jennelle's creations are truly stimulating, thought provoking, amazingly beautiful and heartfelt. And yes SEXY, like this mixed media piece to your right.

Throw up your Vs for Janelle who combines her artistic mind and soul, with classic femininity to create masterpieces.

Fav Fem Blogger

Jessica Valenti is one of my favorite feminist bloggers and she just finished a book! Jessica is witty, intelligent, successful and puts a fresh spin on feminism. You can find her latest posts on (which I read religiously). Vs up to Jess for inspiring myself as well as many other young women!

Headey chats about 300

Lena Headey is the best thing about 300

Headey, in my head is clearly the star of 300. Lena plays a powerful Queen Gorgo; bringing life, passion, and strength to her character. Gorgo, herself is a fabulous character, a positive, strong woman caught in the midst of a man's world.

The best line of the movie was when the Persian emissary says to Leonidas "Why does this woman think she can speak amongst men?!"

Queen Gorgo, replies, "Only Spartan women give birth to real men!"

Side note; the soundtrack is intense but pretty much rocks.

Is 30 truly the new 20?

Is Hova right, is 30 truly the new 20?
And if that what does that make me…10 or 20?
Should 20-somethings and 30someings be doing the same thing? If 30-something guys are partying at the bar with 20-something females is that okay?...Perhaps normal even? Because really how may 30-something women do you see out at the bar on the reg..hanging out with younger guys? I guess as you get older, the age aspect of people hanging out becomes not so much of an issue. As long as everyone is having fun perhaps once a person hits a certain maturity level, age really doesn't matter?.?.


*If boys are toys…That must be why men are dogs…hahaha

Just a little something that came to mind. Think about it…I think that statement works on so many levels.

The Global Sisterhood

Vs up to H-Dubbs for sharing these sweet links with me and keeping me up with Feminism as a global rock girl!

Sisterhood is Global

Sisterhood is Global- by Robin Morgan

Take action and join the Global Sisterhood Network

I don't know about these Pussies!?!?

Pussycat Dolls (PCD)..okay yes they're hot. A few young women doing their that way I guess they could be a positive influence for women, but i just don't know.

Taking off you're clothes to sell records..not so much. And well anything that dresses that scandalously and is referred to as "pussy", well that doesn't exactly scream feminism. Instead I hear "objectify me now." Perhaps if the PCD were well known for their amazing voices and deep lyrics then I would be all about them. But singing things like "loosen up my buttons" or whatever that song is called, well I'm not requesting the PCD to record the new feminist anthem or anything.

But if they're happy with objectifying themselves, then who am I to stop them.

I'm not gonna lie..I jam out to their songs once in a while...and like I said they are hot.

A little something Silly

No big deal hahaha..this is a facebook message I received from one of my girls that i just had to share.

"Women have unique magic tricks; they get wet without water, bleed without injury, and make boneless things hard."

hehehe..I found it entertaining...thanks Whit

Obama and Clinton give hope and inspiration

Hillary and Barack honor those who fought for equality in Selma, AL. Civil Rights Actions of the past, like Bloody Sunday have given minorities many more opportunities for their future. Obama and Clinton are examples of such opportunities.

This video of the senators' visit to Selma is inspiring and hopeful...a monumental step forward in the battle of equality.
