i'll give up sex then. lol!
Yet another reason why I am glad that I was not born a woman in old China. That, and the whole foot-binding thing. And the concubine deal sort of pisses me off, too. But I think I might have liked the clothes...although now that I think about it, those were probably a pain to wear, too.
They probably were, but the idea of being a concubine has always appealed to me. I'm not sure why.
But the idea of having my labia sewn shut, and my feet bound.. mm.
HA! Dylan Moran is freaking awesome :D
And yes, ow and eww.
Isn't he awesome? I like him. :)
Indeed. Poor things. :(

I thoroughly enjoyed that video - thanks for sharing :)
And yeah, the whole genital mutilation thing - cringe.
But of course! Glad you liked it. :)
And yeah. Not cool.
Thank goodness for these chasity belts. They're a little uncomfortable at first but I'm really getting used to it. Mine's titanium. No so easy for my small bladder, but great for exercise! Dad thinks I'm especially vulnerable to the evils of men's minds and actions.
To pick a battle: I think the sexual situation over in Asia and Africa is ridiculous! They should be dropping condoms and sexual responsibilty out of planes and Sally Struther's sucessors should be on TV crying about AIDs more than the lack of Jesus. No wait, they should be doing that HERE TOO!!!!!!!!!!
i agree compleely. It's such a devasating situation ,, and all the money you send goes to administration! THAT makes me So angry@!
i don't like thinking about this... reminds me of sleeping beauty #3 by anne rice, or whatever she called the third or whatever she called herself.
Sorry love. *hugs*
I never read that. Is it good?
It really is. I think it's important to tell people about it though.
Don't get me started on female genital mutilation - but also don't get me started on chastity belts. Bodice ripper material=cool! Hygenically=ew!http://home.teleport.com/~gumball/belt01.jpg
"Oh, honey, you do NOT hold the key!"
Eee. Yeah, that would be a hygeine nightmare. WOW. Poor things. They'd have so many awful infections all the time!!
Sewing my WHAT THE FU
That kind of made me want to throw up, but then I ate another Kit-Kat and felt so much better.
lol. I'm glad the kitkat helped.
haha that video was funny, thanks random!
Indeed. And imagine, it happening as a little girl?
Ugh. I bought the Vagina Monologues yesterday, actually, and genital mutilation is discussed in there.
A few comments
Female and male circumcision are two completely different things. Male circumcision is more hygenic, with a lower rate of STDs if I'm not mistaken, and doesn't truly affect a man's pleasure. Female circumcision has one single purpose--to remove any pleasure she might receive from sex.
Also, how does menstruation work if the labia are sewn shut? I'm not sure I really want to know, but...ugh. Men. Why do they want to do this to women? What's so scary about a woman having sex and enjoying it?
I still haven't read that, but I love Eve Ensler's work. If you liked her writing, you should check out her play Necessary Targets. It's just heartwrenching.
And supposedly if a woman doesn't enjoy sexual intercourse, then she'll be less likely to cheat on her husband. *eyes roll* That's the reasoning behind it. Revolting, and cruel
*pewwww zap my medieval past then * >_> =========> *boomie on that sewing stuff* ouchie that sounds really stupid and silly on there part sounds like some people never hear of trust.
yikes... didn't know of that method prior.
