Subject:sharing herbal abortion info
Posted by:escape_of_maude.
Time:9:30 pm.
Hi All,

I'm compiling a zine on herbal abortions, and a few other herbal gynecology-related topics. I would be honored to hear or read anyone's personal accounts (successful or not) with herbal abortions, and I'm also trying to seek out as many written sources as possible. Please email me (or post here) suggested books, zines, articles, websites, etc. Thank you!!

Green Blessings,
Maude

Be ready to contact your local senators (unless one of them is Barbara Boxer - she's already got it covered.)

One more step to abolish legalized abortionsCollapse )

Subject:Hoffman: C-Word Once 'Term Of Endearment'
Posted by:badpaintings.
Time:12:43 pm.
http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/3419466/detail.html

DENVER -- The president of the University of Colorado would not say in a sworn deposition whether she considered a certain slur against women "vile," and later said she had heard it used as "a term of endearment," according to media reports.... The comment drew the ire of Regina Cowles, president of the Boulder National Organization of Women, who called Hoffman's response outrageous and not acceptable...

You say you don't trust any animal
that can bleed for seven days and
won't die.

I've been bleeding for too long.
I've been hurting inside,
suffered abuse and oppression;
I have bled and stained my memories
and my heart.

I am still alive.

It is a woman's place to walk down empty roads at 4 a.m.,
to jump in puddles,
to laugh loud
to get drunk, whether it be on good wine,
poetry, laughter, sex, outdrinking the boys,
admiration, voice, life.

I am a feminist,
but that does not mean I will be ashamed to shave my legs,
my cunt, my armpits.
I will not be ashamed of wearing pink,
of liking lace
and dresses
and glitter.

I will not feel shame for my naturally skinny body.
I will no longer feel the need to remind the world
that I am not anorexic.
I will ignore angry eyes
as I swallow three meals worth of food at once.
I will not allow myself any guilt, ever.

I have known love more than most can claim,
I have known love because I am unafraid
unafraid of seeming stupid
unafraid of reciting poems I have written from windowsills
unafraid of consequence;
I have taken leaps of faith,
I have chased the dragons of hopelessness
and came out in shining armor.

I am afraid of more than I let on; I am afraid of choking, losing my memory,
living a life without passion or love.

I am not Rapunzel, Cinderella, or Snow White.
If I want your help, I'll ask.

I will not be ashamed of the fact that I am physically weak,
that I can hardly lift a barbell,
but I am stubborn,
I am flexible,
and I am ruthless.

I will wrestle with the boys and I will win;
I'll tell them how to pleasure a woman,
I'll tell women how to pleasure themselves
and other women.

I have been angry. I spent a lot of time trying not to be angry.
The world told me that anger is bad. I realize now that repression
only breeds more anger. My anger will fuel my revolution.

I will fumble through my choices
and I will reject good advice
and give advice
and take advice, maybe even if it's too late.
I will live this life to the fullest,
and maybe I'll never sell a book,
and I'll probably come out scab-kneed, tired, and brokenhearted,
still, I will live this life, each moment of this life. Even if it's hard.
Especially if it's hard.

I will dance in the rain and swoon and giggle if I damn well please.
I am everything that is "girl"
and this girl can kick some ass if she has to.

Don't be suprised if I tell you to suck your own dick.
If I say, "Me first."
If I wrestle you to the floor in high heels
and perfect eyeshadow.
I will indulge in girltalk
and speak of revolution while painting my fingernails.

I will accept compliments
and be flattered by whistles and catcalls,
even as I'm shouting back
even as I grind their face into the dirt.

I will contradict myself and feel no shame.
I will stand tall and proud,
show my ass if I want to,
be a genius if I want to,
take the world by storm.

I am a woman,
I am everywoman,
I am no other woman but me.

Hi! I found this group, and decided I must join.

Hell, any group with the word cunt in it makes me happy. Even happier to find out that it's not porn. YAY!

I'm Sasha. I'm a youngin', I live in Pensacola, Florida. I am female, I like breakin' it down in my living room, vanilla ice cream, spaghetti, poetry, and comfortable shoes. I like people, too. A lot. And I talk too much.

Hello, fellow cuntlovers...
I am a bright & shiny new thing in this community, so *wave* and "hi!"
I bought Cunt a long time ago it seems, and I've since read it and re-read it and lent it to friends and highlighted it and discussed it and let it change the way I see myself and the world. No other book has had as great an affect on me as it has. It's truly mind-altering.

Well, I thought I'd share one of my favourite excerpt from it. Which you may share your thoughts on, or counter with your favourite excerpt... Anywho, it's under the cut:

I am currently reading Cunt; I enjoy it very much...

...But after awhile I begin to get this sense of ultra-feminism, S.C.U.M., man-hater type of thing going on with her. And I read the preface and everything, but it's just so anti-man. And I am not a feminist at all. I don't think it should make a difference who does what, instead of what gender it is. . .

But that's just me.

I do, however, really like what she had to say about the "Feminine Hygiene Industry"

Do you ever feel, though, that after awhile of listening to her rant about things it just seems like too much???

hey everyone... i love opening myself up to the firing squad but here goes...

- i'm a dude
- i'm reading Cunt because i like my ideas to be challenged
- i'm white, republican and listen to Rush Limbaugh just about every day
- i consider myself open minded (some people may think because my political views i'm not)

ok - my question, i'm only 130 pages into Inga's manifesto. and not only have i been mortally offended, but i think i can't relate to a lot of her grievances. (and maybe if someone is black, hispanic, asian they might be more help - since i can't relate to color disputes since when i see someone of color - i don't look at them as a black man. i see them as a man. i don't look at someone as a puerto rican girl. she is a women.)... but a lot of her points i find ridiculous. such as:

page 136 when she compares her being female to a person being born from slavery. a little before this she calls white males out on being responsible for slavery (which yeah they were.) but she groups all WHITE MALES into this category. all white males are responsible for kicking the native americans out of their native land. etc...

my personal roots are italitan, french and polish (mainly) and i'm only the second generation american. my paternal family didn't get to america til the 1930s and my maternal til 1927. i took no part in slavery. no one in my family ever raised a whip to anyone. in fact half my family left italy to get away from socialism and oppression. so are her comments supposed to not pertain to me? or am i guilty by color and sex association only?

and wouldn't this be like me saying, because i was picking on as a kid by someone older then me, therefore everyone older then me is an evil person?

Subject:From hush hush to cunt! (the milwaukee cunt convention)
Posted by:cunt_that_bites.
Time:10:09 pm.

Hello, the subject of this post may in fact be a bit deceptive because it's geared towards everyone, not just women.

I'm on the "cunt committee" organizing an event that's a full weekend long (fri. night-sun.)at Bucketworks focusing on gender issues. the events is actually three events all rolled up into one;

The Milwaukee Cunt Convention (Fri. night-Sat. morning lock-in)
The Milwaukee Cock Convention (Fri. noon-night dinner &forum)
Open Gender (Both convention have gender forum &sexy scrabble)

I'm working on the cunt convention so I want to give some info about that.

The event is inspired by Cunt (Inga Muscio's book for those who don't know) but is going way above and beyond that as far as what goes on. There's going to be lots of food (and we didn't forget about the vegans!) Several forums that will NOT be boring lectures, a communal art project... a lot of good stuff is gonna happen, and, a lot of issues will be attacked.

Both events are by invitation only and have limited space!!

For more information about either the cunt or convention, or for an invitation request contact:

Suddenly there are people here! Well, at least a few. So I'd like to maybe get something going here. I started this community because Cunt is one of those books that just makes me want to talk for hours about all the ideas in it. The problem is that I have a hard time finding people to have those discussions with me, so I thought LJ might be a good way to try.

Anyway, I'd really like if all 7 or so of you could introduce yourselves. Make a post & tell us just the basic info about yourself (however much you feel like disclosing) and maybe a little bit about how you came across Cunt, why you read it, what you thought about it, any changes you've made in your life because of it, etc.

I'll be posting mine in just a couple of days, I promise. For now, I'm really interested to see what you all have to say!
