It’s a Porn world after all!

Step aside women and children, it’s a Porn world at the whim of men’s desires. But we aren’t stepping aside and we will not be silent bystanders to the continual degradation of our sex, especially in front of our children’s eyes.

‘Questions for Women’ and I are about to tackle this sexually discriminating issue in Australia head on, so tonight I popped into my local service station for a few quick snaps of this. Continue reading

Keep girls and women in Real sport

Women and girls are in the midst of a cultural sexualisation and exploitation crisis across all spectrums of our lives and impacting us in many harmful ways. According to the Australian Sports commission such sexualised promotions are “reason enough for some girls and women to choose another sport or even no sport at all”. Watch this 40 second video which emphasizes this powerfully Continue reading

Women’s rights are Human rights

Two important campaigns for women’s human rights need support and awareness. Profiting from, benefiting from exploitation, and the depraved sexualisation of women’s bodies is never okay. Never! As human beings we must take a stance to stop these travesties.  Women and girls are people too, women and girls are human beings too, stand up and speak up for our human rights. Continue reading

How contemporary culture creates sexist men

Explicit imagery of women that we are faced with daily, negatively impacting on women’s body image and sense of self, while, as ‘The Bro Code’ says conditioning men to dehumanize and disrespect women, creating a sexist culture.

Enough is enough, things have to change. Those profiting off exploiting and sexualising women’s bodies won’t stop on integrity and decency’s behalf. Men – it is up to you to stop benefiting from it and buying into it. Women – stay brave, stay strong and keep speaking up for the return of our dignity. And what of the women that take part in this pornified culture, in the images in ‘The Bro Code’ preview, in our society? Read the article below

 

In a culture with widespread sexual objectification, women (especially) tend to view themselves as objects of desire for others… Pop culture sells women and girls a hurtful fiction that their value lies in how sexy they appear to others; they learn at a very young age that their sexuality is for others…

This unfortunately leads to a society where some women think they have to be as sexy, sexual and readily available as they can be to compete with the imagery they are inundated with daily, to feel good about themselves, to find their value in this pornified culture. A vicious cycle breeding disposable women, as youth as well as sexualisation is dominent in this culture.

Strip club meets bucks night at Sydney Allphones Arena–Oh, I mean Lingerie Football League

For those of you who didn’t get an insiders look at the LFL Promo match at Sydney last night, you missed the cause of equality for female athletes being set back, here are the updates…

Grey team player loses her pants, the mostly male crowd goes wild, they replay it ‘close up’ on the big screen and the crowd cheers. Pink team makes a touchdown, player celebrates by slapping her thighs and making hand gesture of a vagina. An athlete in the crowd says “I’m a sports person and I find this so offensive.” LFL players dance for the men, the men go wild, not unlike a strip club (sounds like strip club sport, looks like strip club sport, equals strip club sport). Three male spectators are invited on the field to chase and tackle one of the LFL players (Melinda Tankard Reist – “in no other sport would crowd be invited onto the field and tackle [grope] a player.”

Collective shout tweet – “sexual harassment of players is accepted and even encouraged at the LFL, how many men’s sports would condone the same?” and asks “is there any protection from sexual harassment in their contratcts?” As Nora Dett tweeted, “Three men tackling one women to the ground is entertaining? Outside the LFL setting that would be a very different story.” One spectator was overheard saying, “nobody goes to this for sport. It’s like saying they go to a strip club to see a good dancer.”

Women in lingerie handing out merchandise to the men in the crowd, the men go crazy. A trialthlete says, “can’t take anymore, leaving” and even free tickets can’t keep some disgusted audience members from leaving. Older female host asks men in crowd so stop stacking their beer cups up, they throw beer on her. Caitlin roper tweets “they claim LFL is about sport, it’s really for men who like seeing women get hurt.” (While having their pants ripped off).

A lot of men getting drunk and becoming more aggresive, yelling at LFL players, this is not promoting women’s equality in sport. LFL player on her way to the VIP lounge nearly grabbed by a pack of men, security has to step in. Blow up doll passed around the crowd, one man simulating oral sex, men boo at attendent who takes it away, remember the whole family was invited. afeministmother tweets “to see the exploitation and abuse of women yet again ‘regulated’ and packaged for the main stream is depressing.”

Melinda Tankard Reist tweets, “wonder what Cory Bernadi thinks of pants down close up replay, 3 men on 1 woman tackle and blow up doll? The LFL still sport Senator?”

During time-outs the LFL tune camera’s onto two women in audience kissing, men go mental. Some men at LFL have paid extra for the party zone, they can ‘stay back, take pics and whatever you want.’ Lap dance anyone?

Remember the LFL contracts prohibit the players from wearing underwear beneath their lingerie uniforms (close up replay of player losing her pants) and the LFL offered special prices for juniors aged 2-12 years.

Sign the petition now to stop the LFL from forming their franchise in Australia next year. The goverment won’t step in, this is up to the Australain people! http://www.change.org/petitions/stop-the-lingerie-football-league-in-australia

Australia, not so good for prostituted children

A child sex trafficking ring has been uncovered in Sydney, with a 19 year old woman arrested and her 22 year old sister rearrested (after already being accused of charging men money to engage in sexual acts with two young girls, 12 and 13 years of age). With another five girls believed to be involved between the ages of 12 and 16.

Police believe this operation has been running for a minimum of two years, with Liverpool Local Area commander Ray King, a police officer for a long time, saying he has never been so disgusted over what detectives have uncovered.

“These are children that have been abused and manipulated,” Superintendent King told reporters on Thursday.

“We don’t know how they will be in 20 years. It’s quite traumatic.”

Some of these girls would have been vulnerable and living on the streets

The younger sister is expected to be charged along with 3 male ‘customers’.

This is a worldwide travesty against our children, young teen girls and women, this has to stop!

We are supposed to be the lucky country, yet these kids are far from lucky. This trade of girls’ and women’s bodies and souls has to stop, everywhere. These are human beings. As a collective we need to start healing women instead of destroying us. As a collective we need to take a good look at this society’s overt sexualisation of women and girls and see where it is getting us. We live in the 21st century, we are supposed to be civilised. And as a society we need to listen to these women and girls, we need to hear them and do what we can.
