Genius. Jonathan Harris' “I Love Your Work”: A Storytelling Innovator Examines The World Of Lesbian Porn & Plays with New Biz Model. | Homosexuality Scooped! | Scoop.it

"Artist and storyteller Jonathan Harris creates Internet-based projects that experiment with how people relate to technology and each other....

 

The project centers on nine women in the feminist lesbian porn industry who are recorded for a 24-hour period, with 10-second blips of their everyday lives playing out in five-minute intervals. What’s revealed is an intimate portrait of a marginalized community opening up about sex, gender politics, depression, and their daily grind in a way that’s downright real. All the action takes place in New York during a span of 10 days in May 2010, while each character was part of a new porn film by Juicy Pink Box called Therapy.

 

If the subject piques your interest, don’t think you can just click away and view this footage for free. The full interactive experience is limited to 10 viewers per day, and tickets are $10 each, booked in advance. There’s also an instant-access premium package for $300, which includes three tickets, plus an archival inkjet print. The fee structure defies traditional conventions of online porn, but also experiments with how value is placed on digital work...."

Time for Change: First Woman Takes Helm at the FCC | New America Media

Time for Change: First Woman Takes Helm at the FCC | New America Media | Homosexuality Scooped! | Scoop.it

It’s important to celebrate whenever social barriers are knocked down — including the one that fell today when Mignon Clyburn became the acting chairwoman of the Federal Communications Commission.

Never before has a president appointed a woman to chair the commission — not even on an interim basis.

It’s not the first time Clyburn has made history. She’s also the first African-American woman to serve as an FCC commissioner.

But there are still many barriers that need to be knocked down. For one, we need to remove the “acting” title for the next woman to chair the FCC.

Clyburn’s accomplishment is also an opportunity to reflect on the FCC’s history of permitting and even exacerbating inequality. For evidence, just consider the impact of the agency’s policy decisions on women and people of color.

It’s no accident that our nation’s media system looks the way it does; it reflects our nation’s legacy of discrimination. Most of our first broadcast licenses were allocated to white men or white-run companies. And not much has changed.

People of color own just 3 percent of all full-power TV stations and less than 8 percent of all full-power radio stations. Women own less than 7 percent of all full-power broadcast stations. These statistics explain both the lack of diversity among staff at broadcast outlets and the paltry amount of programming featuring people of color.

But instead of adopting policies that would boost ownership diversity, the FCC and Congress have consistently pushed for greater consolidation. Thanks to socioeconomic conditions, the FCC’s approach has made it even more difficult for women and people of color to buy broadcast stations.

British Muslim leader Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin indicted for genocide and crimes against humanity - Telegraph

British Muslim leader Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin indicted for genocide and crimes against humanity  - Telegraph | Homosexuality Scooped! | Scoop.it

A war crimes court in Bangladesh has indicted a British Muslim leader for his alleged role in the murder of top intellectuals during the country's 1971 liberation war.

Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin, who was born in Bangladesh and who is based in London, has held positions in a host of top Islamic organisations in his adopted homeland and was involved in the setting up of the Muslim Council of Britain.

The former journalist, who denies any wrongdoing, was a newspaper reporter in the impoverished South Asian country when what was then East Pakistan broke away from West Pakistan.

He is accused of being a leading member of the notorious al-Badr militia and of the fundamentalist Jamaat-e-Islami political party, which fought for the country to remain part of Pakistan.

"The court has taken into cognisance the charges of war crimes against Chowdhury Mueen-Uddin and issued a warrant to arrest him," International Crimes Tribunal registrar Nasiruddin Mahmud told AFP.

Mr Mueen-Uddin would face the death penalty if extradited and convicted.

State prosecutor Syed Haider Ali told AFP Mr Mueen-Uddin "has been indicted for crimes against humanity and genocide. The charges include the killing of the country's top intellectuals during the 1971 war of liberation."

The head of the tribunal's investigation agency Abdul Hannan told AFP Mr Mueen-Uddin had fled the country after the war.

Mr Mueen-Uddin's lawyer said he "rejects all these allegations in their entirety" and raised doubts about whether Britain would ever agree to extradition, given concerns about the death penalty and the impartiality of the court.

"Bangladesh will be required to establish that there is a prima facie case against Mr Mueen-Uddin," said lawyer Toby Cadman in a statement to AFP. "They will also be required to give an undertaking that Mr Mueen-Uddin will not receive the death penalty."
The court also indicted Ashrafuzzaman Khan, a United States citizen, on the same charges as Mr Mueen-Uddin today.

The controversial tribunal has already charged 12 people with war crimes and sentenced to death two people, including the vice-president of Jamaat-e-Islami.

Bangladesh has struggled to come to terms with its violent birth.

The current government says up to three million people were killed in the war, many murdered by locals who collaborated with Pakistani forces.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's government established the tribunal in March 2010 to try the collaborators, but it has been hit by a series of controversies.

A presiding judge resigned in December last year after his leaked Internet calls showed he was under pressure from the government to deliver a quick judgement.

The war crimes trials have plunged the country into one of its most turbulent chapters since independence, as the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party and its main ally Jamaat have protested what they view as politically motivated charges.

The opposition has called a series of national strikes protesting the trails and clashes over the verdicts have left more than 100 people dead since the first judgement on January 21.
