VERY powerful stuff--as it should be!!
Nope, they're not.
Hi, Janie!Thank you for posting the video of the flash mob raising awareness of the global epidemic of human trafficking and violence against women. The second vid is another important monologue. We all need to see ourselves as beautiful - perfectly imperfect. Every individual has an "attraction strategy," a set of specific requirements that need to be met in order for us to feel attracted to somebody. At first that might seem rigid and exclusionary, but consider this. No matter what age you are and no matter what body type, size, shape or color you happen to be, there is someone - strike that - there are many people in this world who will see in you the qualities and characteristics they desire most. They will not have to "settle" for you. They will be completely turned on by you. The key is to be patient and to keep searching until you find a companion who considers you ideal. Imagine how tragic it would be to give up when you were on the verge of meeting that special someone. In his training seminars, motivational speaker, author and champion salesman Zig Ziglar explained that he started out as a door-to-door salesman, a job that repeatedly exposed him to rejection. Ziglar programmed himself to experience ecstasy every time a door was slammed in his face, reminding himself that every rejection brought him one step closer to making a sale.Happy Sunday, dear friend Janie!
My boyfriend made the mistake of wording something incorrectly and it came out as, "You can fix the sheets" instead of asking me to do so. I retorted with, "Oh thank you for your permission, master!" He apologized. The fact that people use that term without thinking is proof that society is fucked up. Every day at work, somebody tells me I CAN do something. It's always a man or a high class/rich woman. Like hey fuck face, I am NOT your property, don't tell me I'm allowed to do something. Ugh.
wow. one billion rising was very powerful!
It is so ...I just don't know how to put it in words that so many women are abused and used. We do have a voice and we must keep using it.
Wasn't it a US congressman who last week called women a "cheaper" cut of meat? AMAZING!
Um...I have to say that at times, I feel I am possessed.-andi
I liked the drums the best in the flash mob.
I think if you showed up with one billion women at a hot house or a tractor trailer sex vehicle (like they use at the super bowl and other sporting events), you might actually kick some ass... making progress on freeing children. Or take a billion women to some places in Asia, where women sell their children - success might come easier. that's a big army!Vagina - Looks like women are jumping the men's bandwagon. "See my penis? I am god." And the vagina answered: "Luke, Like, who's your Daddy?"
Janie, I'm so glad you stopped by my blog. =)
Shady dear Shady said it better than I ever could. Can I just ditto his post?"Settling?" I think not.
I settled for Willy Dunne Wooters. Oh, yes, indeed I did. I settled for a man who helps me (often without being asked), is cooperative, is generous, and is so kindhearted that I'm proud to be seen with him. That's settling for me. And it's okay with me if you ditto what Shady said. I'm reinstating comments. My OCD wouldn't allow me to continue without them.
I would also like to just +1 to Shady. There's no way we could say it better. Great videos with a great message.
Powerful post. We women have a lot more power than we think we do. It is sickening that we are still treated like cattle instead of people. I hope those that commit crimes against women and children go to a special kind of hell, one where they are tortured non-stop. Great post Janie.
Got your panties in a bunch? Dig 'em out, get comfortable, and let's chat.
