Please Stop Making Calendars - from an intellectual activist pin-up model

Please Stop Making Calendars - from an intellectual activist pin-up model | slut-shaming | Scoop.it

[from Sallie: As a sex-positive feminist who has sold my boudoir photos and used them on my website to build my brand as the Sexual Psychic, this article has changed my mind about cause-related pinup calendars -- although not about porn in general.]

 

"Pinup calendars added to an existing environment in which women were seen first as sexual objects and maybe if they’re lucky they’d later be seen as human beings with thoughts and desires of their own."

12 y.o ‘slut’ Facebook pages and the death of Amanda Todd: MTR Feminist Current interview | Melinda Tankard Reist

12 y.o ‘slut’ Facebook pages and the death of Amanda Todd: MTR Feminist Current interview | Melinda Tankard Reist | slut-shaming | Scoop.it

The tragic story of Amanda Todd has been covered widely by the media and has impacted people across the continent. It’s been noted that the connected issues of sexualization, misogyny and violence against women have been left out of much of the media coverage.

In the first half of the show I speak with Melinda Tankard Reist about the sexualization of young girls, the 12 year old slut meme Facebook page, and the Amanda Todd tragedy. Melinda is a Canberra author, speaker, media commentator, and advocate for women and girls. She is known for her work on the objectification of women and sexualisation of girls and her work to address violence against women. Melinda has published several books, including: Getting Real: Challenging the Sexualisation of Girls.

In the second half of the show I speak with Fazeela Jiwa, a South Asian woman who grew up in Vancouver, B.C. She has an MA in literature and is trained as a teacher. Fazeela has done work with Vancouver Rape Relief and many alternative education organizations.

Reddit Users Attempt to Shame Sikh Woman, Get Righteously Schooled

Reddit Users Attempt to Shame Sikh Woman, Get Righteously Schooled | slut-shaming | Scoop.it

A Reddit user going by the handle "european_douchebag" posted a surreptitious photo of a Sikh woman with the caption "i'm not sure what to conclude from this." The user's apparent confusion stems from the fact that the woman—bound by her religion not to cut her hair or alter her body—has an abundance of dark, untrimmed facial hair. The mind of european_douchebag was SO INCREDIBLY BLOWN by the fact that women have hair on their bodies—and, yes, faces—and that some women are bold, self-assured, and pious enough not to cave to western beauty standards (and gender expectations), there was nothing for him to do but post her photo online and wait for the abuse to flood in.

But then something totally lovely and unexpected happened. The woman in the photo responded:

A struggle that's going strong - Socialist Worker Online | slut-shaming | Scoop.it

More than "400 people gathered at the State of Illinois building and City Hall in downtown Chicago September 29 to continue the movement against slut-shaming and sexism."

 

Speakers included sex workers, "members from abortion fund networks, rape survivor advocacy agencies, students and political organizations, all of whom kept the event rooted in reality and the need for change throughout society...The queer community was also vitally connected and raised issues around transphobia and violence."

 

"This is a kind of event that weaves together issues like health care equality, sexual violence, the rights of sex workers, anti-harassment issues and queer rights into a dialogue about fighting back."
