Yes last Thursday was Christmas (Island) in July and it was a huge success!!! If you didn’t manage to make it and you still want to donate pads, tampons or reusable menstrual products, please email us at email@example.com for a postal address or just drop into the ASRC in West Melbourne to hand over the goods. Feel free to tell them it’s in aid of the feminaust padraiser too 😉
Unfortauntely I had to leave the event early so I could go sit next to this person… and hear her speak. I also got to hand her some shamelessly self promoting material about EDITH and the person whose hair you can see in the forground is an ASRC board director!!!! Crazy world eh?!
Anyway, onto the links. Late as usual and probably a little on the light side but it’s been a busy time chez feminaust recently. xxx
After all our oooh and ahhhing over all the huge piles of pads and tampons we raised last week, lets now attach another kind of liner for another kind of natural bodily function that involves fluid and the crotchal area. Panty Liners for Sweaty Crotch During Heavy Exercise!!!!!!!!! Yes, they exist and apparently they’re designed because women love to sweat, they just don’t want anyone to know they’re doing it….. [logic failure alert]. Anyway, the good news is that Sammy J has daughters and cares about women not hanging out with arseholes who care whether they have sweat patches covering their love patches. So he wrote a funny song about it which wins the pony award for this week.
And the winner of the POO HEAD Award is Kevin Rudd and his new policy to screw everyone of their human rights.
I wrote to my local member (who is Labor) to urge him to publicly condemn the plan but strangely I haven’t heard back from him.
Don’t forget you can rally against the plan. Do a facebook search or an internet search for your nearest, nextest rally. If you’re in Melbourne it’s this one

People are awesome
And sometimes men say awesome shit. This time it’s Ken Lay explaining clearly the link between casual sexism and gender based violence.

Tutu announces he can’t worship a homophobic god. Bless him!
Nothing to do with feminism but I’m really over tired and need to smile.
