  • What I say: I'm a communist.
  • What they hear: My heart, mind and soul are forever dedicated in your memory comrade Stalin. Let my blood spill in the great revolution that will uphold your greatness.

Is it just me or do many of the arguments regarding women’s reproductive systems and the practices thereof involve this simple question: “Do their reproductive systems belong to them or to god?”… Society would never let god challenge private ownership when it comes to the free market, the buying and selling of labor, etc. But, for some reason women’s bodies still belong to a feudalistic conception of property.

It’s not just you.

In October, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte got its very own SWAT team, equipped with MP-15 rifles, M&P 40 sidearms, and Remington shotguns. “We have integrated SWAT officers into the squads that serve our campus day and night,” boasted UNC Charlotte Chief of Police Jeff Baker. The following month, in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, a SWAT team staged an armed raid on an occupied building, pointing assault rifles at the heads of activists, among them UNC students.

Are Sex Offenders and Men’s Magazines Using the Same Language?
from University of Surrey
Far from being harmless or ironic fun, lads’ mags could be legitimising hostile sexist attitudes, according to new research.
Psychologists from Middlesex University and the University of Surrey found that when presented with descriptions of women taken from lads’ mags, and comments about women made by convicted rapists, most people who took part in the study could not distinguish the source of the quotes. The research due to be published in the British Journal of Psychology also revealed that most men who took part in the study identified themselves more with the language expressed by the convicted rapists.Psychologists presented men between the ages of 18 and 46 with a range of statements taken from magazines and from convicted rapists in the study, and gave the men different information about the source of the quotes. Men identified more with the comments made by rapists more   than the quotes made in lads’ mags, but men identified more with quotes said to have been drawn from lads’ mags more than those said to have been comments by convicted rapists.
The researchers also asked a separate group of women and men aged between 19 and 30 to rank the quotes on how derogatory they were, and to try to identify the source of the quotes.  Men and women rated the quotes from lads’ mags as somewhat more derogatory, and could categorize the quotes by source little better than chance…
