Counterbalance~ Courtesy Of The Internet


What follows are some musings that have been swimming around for a couple of days. Yesterday a friend voiced the same feelings without me having said anything, which leads me to muse into type.

With the introduction of the internet and the resultant green light for misogynists, paedophiles and downright dangerous men, it has been for me, such an eye opener- that I can’t ever be shrunk again and just go back to sleep. In neither addition, nor do I intend to ever do so. Lately I’ve spent quite some time wading through sites such as the Daily Squirt and the newly christened Pervy Pumpers, and believe me it hasn’t been easy. Sometimes there is actually an eary silence in my head as I find some other incredible evidence of female hatred. Maybe the silence is a form of protection, or maybe it is shock and disbelief? Then why do it? Some Trolls may ask. The answer is because I want to and I can! Just like pervs want to and they can! I can handle what I see, because at least that way I know what we are up against.

However, in an ironic way the Internet has provided us with a counterbalance. I know that at least we Radfems can all band together, activate, discuss, cry, debate, support and even sometimes have a good fucking laugh at their expense. I used to so feel isolated in my beliefs, a bit of a strange oddity, going along, as so not to appear 'prudish' I did not even realise until fairly recently [that is] in the grand scheme of things-- there was such a strong voice against pornsitution and paedophilia, which was not ran by fundi right wing -nuts

You want to change the world? It starts right here on the internet

I've been thinking about this too. The internet can be used by us to our advantage. The media refuse to tell the stories of women, but through the net we have our own news network. We can also find each other and plan actions and having a laugh too (very important to laugh).

I don't usually do this, but there is no other effective way to find all the fabulous radfem folks out there if I don't, so here's an invitation to the continuous anti-pornstitution party going on over at the genderberg forums. We plan actions, laugh, and bounce ideas off each other.

Oh Yes!! My brother works for the media (BBC) mostly, and and ex of mine used to be a media worker. They are very selective what they tell us, and how it's said. But everyone knows that already!
