Comment: So I guess now the third wave feminists will call for tampons and tampon ads to be banned because “sexism”.
Free period bleeding declared way to transcend male oppression
People Magazine is celebrating Kiran Gandhi for running the London Marathon without a tampon.
“Gandhi let her blood flow freely to raise awareness about women who have no access to feminine products and to encourage women to not be embarrassed about their periods,” writes Char Adams for the celebrity gossip periodical.
“I ran the whole marathon with my period blood running down my legs,” Gandhi, who played drums for singer M.I.A. and Thievery Corporation, wrote on her website.
If there’s one way to transcend oppression, it’s to run a marathon in whatever way you want. On the marathon course, sexism can be beaten. Where the stigma of a woman’s period is irrelevant, and we can re-write the rules as we choose. Where a woman’s comfort supersedes that of the observer. I ran with blood dripping down my legs for sisters who don’t have access to tampons and sisters who, despite cramping and pain, hide it away and pretend like it doesn’t exist.
Melissa Mullins, writing for Government Slaves, put the stunt into context and told Gandhi:
It seems the only ones that feel periods are something shameful or embarrassing are girls like you. We aren’t in junior high where everything seems embarrassing and are only beginning to learn the human body and its functions. When someone is fully mature, they understand the differences between men and women – except for the feminists who think there are no differences.
There’s something to be said for someone who allows any bodily fluids to run freely and in the view of public. First, it’s downright disgusting and unsanitary. Second – you do nothing to help “your cause” but come off as dirty and a little mental.
Comment: More proof that VeganGMO is a Monsanto front operation.
I just want to make it clear that I don’t think there’s anything wrong with veganism .
In a free society, you are free to believe in what religion you want to believe in, and you are free to believe in no religion at all.
You are free to have whatever political beliefs you want.
You are free to practice any diet you think is ideal for you.
If you think tons of meat is good for you, then that is your right. (Just remember that if you don’t get enough fiber in your diet from plant-based foods, your health – especially colorectal health – will suffer.)
If you think a balanced diet of animal-based foods and plant-based foods is ideal for you, then go for it.
If you think a primarily plant-based diet with little or no meat is ideal for you, then go for it.
If you think a totally plant-based diet with no animal-based foods whatsoever is ideal for you, then go for it.
But when meatheads and ethical vegans – vegans who practice veganism more as a religion than a dietary choice – you belittle and bully others for their dietary choices, then you are crossing the line.
Meat eaters, you do not have the right to belittle and bully vegetarians and vegans for their dietary choices.
Ethical vegans, you do not have the right to harass, ridicule, and bully meat eaters and/or lacto-ovo-vegetarians.
Anybody who harasses others for their dietary choices is a bigot and an extremist.
A meat eater who makes fun of vegans/vegetarians and/or harasses/bullies them with snide remarks or threats is an extremist and deserves to be scrutinized by the federal government.
An ethical vegan who makes fun of meat eaters and/or lacto-ovo-vegetarians and/or harasses/bullies them with snide remarks or threats is an extremist and deserves to be scrutinized by the federal government.
Meat eaters like David Martosko and “ethical vegans” like CDLver and Karyn Swaney (Kay7271) are paid by the federal government to start flame wars between meat eaters, lacto-ovo-vegetarians, and vegans with the hope of getting a violent response from meat eaters or vegans in order to justify increased surveillance of the internet and outright internet censorship.
It’s people like David Martosko who justify “vegan rights” and a future where criticizing ethical veganism and animal rights is declared a hate crime.
It’s time to get the radical elements pushed aside so common ground can be found to get our food back to nature and out of the hands of Monsanto and Cargill.
Comment: This just reaffirms my belief that PETA was set up by the meat industry to discredit vegetarians and vegans as kooks.
Comment: This is another example of the hypocrisy of the liberal left. While they lecture us on homophobia, racism, and anti-semitism, here they are engaging in the very same thing they claim to be against!
What if Joel Salatin – a libertarian – were to equate factory farmed chickens with Jewish concentration camp victims and black slaves? The phony left would label him a racist, and they would trespass on Polyface Farms’ private property and harass not only Salatin but anybody who dares support Salatin’s farm with their money. And chances are Salatin’s actions would get him investigated by the IRS. After all, Obama is using the IRS as a political retaliation machine against anybody and everybody who doesn’t support his unconstitutional actions.
It’s sad that the phony right-wing Center for Consumer Freedom – a slimy front group funded by food industry giants including Monsanto and PepsiCo – is the only place reporting this disgusting hypocrisy. There’s nothing on MSNBC about this story. There’s nothing on Daily Kos about this story.
So why is the liberal left ignoring this story?
According to the liberal left, if you’re a liberal and you equate chickens – remember, the animal rights wackos have already said there is no difference between factory farms and cage-free/free-range/humane farms – with Jews and blacks, you are a darling of the phony civil rights movement which is not about “freedom for all” but “enslavement for all”, yet if you’re a libertarian or conservative and equate factory factory farmed chickens with enslaved Jews and enslaved blacks, you’re a racist and a Jew-hating anti-semite!
Also, notice how the Center for Consumer Freedom conveniently ignores the fact that Matthew Prescott – the person behind PETA’s anti-semitic “Holocaust on Your Plate” campaign – is a Zionist Jew. Notice how CCF deliberately fails to expose Prescott’s hypocrisy.
And why does CCF ignore that fact?
Because CCF is run by Rick Berman, a Zionist Jew.
Remember, Zionist Jews are never condemned by the mainstream media and the Zionist front groups such as the ADL or SPLC for mocking the Holocaust, while others are labelled anti-semitic for the same thing.
Ad Targets Russell Simmons’ Deplorable Comparisons of Treatment of Animals to Jews and African Americans
“Outrageous, Offensive and Insensitive” Comments Put the Vegan Celebrity in Company With Other Leading Animal Rights Fanatics
Washington, DC—Following vegan celebrity Russell Simmons’ recent comments likening New York City’s horse-drawn carriages to the Holocaust, HumaneWatch.org, a project of the non-profit Center for Consumer Freedom, ran an ad today in The New York Post highlighting the fact that Simmons’ line of thinking is commonplace among other animal rights fanatics. It includes statements of a similar nature made by leaders of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).
Referring to the carriages, Simmons said, “It’s a Holocuast,” “There were people for slavery, remember? Slavery was fine,” and “There were people who put people in ovens. There are all kinds of ethnic cleansing, people for it,” according to the Wall Street Journal.
The ad also highlights animal liberationists’ history of using similar comparisons of human oppression to the use of animals, focusing on the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).
“While some may find Russell Simmons’ comparison of horse-drawn carriages to slavery and the Holocaust outrageous, this kind of thinking is emblematic of the animal liberationists at PETA and the Humane Society of the United States,” Will Coggin, director of research for HumaneWatch.org, said. “They seek to impose their radical agenda on the rest of us by shutting down the use of animals in agriculture, circuses, marine parks, and medical research and will use disgraceful comparisons to further their goals.”
Like Simmons, HSUS CEO Wayne Pacelle has also compared the treatment of animals to enslaved humans saying, “[For 3,000 years] virtually every major statesman, philosopher, theologian, writer, and critic accepted the existence and legitimacy of slavery… The same can be said of animals.”
HSUS food policy director Matthew Prescott devised a “Holocaust on Your Plate” campaign equating animal-farming to the systematic killing of 6 million Jews and 4 million other victims of Nazism including homosexuals, people with disabilities and other religious and racial minorities. Prescott’s display toured the country in 2003. Prescott, like a number of other HSUS employees, previously worked for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The group also frequently equates animal cruelty to slavery and genocide. Its founder Ingrid Newkirk infamously said, “A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy.”
“The comparison of animal suffering to that of human suffering in the Holocaust and in slavery is outrageous, offensive and insensitive,” Abraham H. Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League and himself a Holocaust survivor, said in a statement about Russell Simmons’ remarks. “I believe he owes an apology to the Jewish and African-American communities. The murder of six million Jews and millions of others who perished in the Holocaust, and the many millions who suffered under slavery, should never be used to make a political point.”
Simmons, who said, “F**k no, I’m not apologizing” for the offensive remark, later claimed he wasn’t talking about “the” Holocaust and has done more than “most blacks” when it comes to fighting anti-Semitism.
Comment: This is why the “War on Drugs” will never end. The government has ZERO INTEREST in legalizing drugs. If drugs were to be legalized, the prison industry would go bankrupt. The government has no interest in reducing the criminal population. Instead, they want to INCREASE the criminal population so that when the time comes when the government says all convicted felons have to be implanted with GPS microchips, over half the population will be microchipped.
And do you think they’ll stop at caffeine powder? Nope. Once they ban caffeine powder, they will start banning caffeine tablets such as Vivarin and No-Doz, and then caffeinated beverages starting with energy drinks followed by coffee, tea, and then soft drinks.
This is a message to ALL the “legalize pot” crowd: If you support a federal ban on caffeine, then you support the War on Drugs, and you are a traitor to your cause.
