Football Player Tim Tebow on What Should Happen in Your Womb

Posted in Activism, Medical, Politics and Sex, Videos, You Fucked Up! with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 27, 2010 by girlonpiano

Article excerpt from AlterNet.org By Tana Ganeva

“How stupid would you feel if you aborted the next Tim Tebow, leaving the world with only tens of thousands of other football players?

That’s the nightmare scenario presented in a Focus on the Family ad set to air during the Super Ball. The completely irreplacable Tebow (who’s also left his mark on the world by promoting abstinence till marriage) will appear in the ad with his mom, who ignored the advice of doctors to have an abortion after contracting amebic dysentery, and wants to tell you all about that wise decision. (Several organizations are launching letter-writing campaigns to get CBS execs to change their minds about running the ad.)

Strangely, CBS has rejected issue advertising in the past. In 2004, the network refused to run ads by both PETA and MoveOn.org. The MoveOn ad made the wildly controversial point that Bush had increased the national deficit; PETA’s involved scantily clad women.

Also too edgy for CBS: the notion that Jesus espoused universal. In 2004 the United Church of Christ submitted an ad showing a bouncer blocking a gay couple from entering a Church, with the tagline: Jesus Didn’t Turn People away. Neither do we.

The network rejected the Church’s ad because it “touches on and/or takes a position on one side of a current controversial issue of public importance.”

If not, YOU BETTER, or SiP will hunt you down and take away your sexy license.

Take the survey now!!!!

Let’s start the New Year off in a proactive way, by adding your voice to the Sexual Freedom Report!

This questionnaire will be the foundation for the first report on the State of Sexual Freedom in America today.  If you already responded to the questionnaire, and many of you have, thank you!  If not, we would really value your opinions!

As I shared with you in the first email, the Woodhull Freedom Foundation plans to publish regular reports on the sexual freedom movement, designed to help identify the social changes taking place, or that must take place for progress to be made, on the diverse issues on which we work. We are particularly interested in recognizing opportunities for already-established sexual freedom issue groups to work together.

We would like to know what you think are the most pressing sexual freedom issues this country is facing and so we are asking for a bit of your time and a lot of your knowledge and expertise.

We will treat your responses as confidential, unless you specifically give us permission to share your comments.  To protect the confidentiality of our participants, we will download the responses each day and they will be taken completely offline.  With that assurance, we are also asking that you provide your contact information on the survey.

I do hope that you’ll take some time right now to respond to the questionnaire.  What you think really does matter to us and to this project.

Please click here or at the link below to begin the survey.

Thanks for your time and your participation!

PS:  Please make sure to give us an email address in the questionnaire so that we can email you a copy of the completed report immediately prior to its public release.

For the record, I love pouring buckets of blood on shivering naked girls as much as anyone else does. But these naked anti-fur protests are getting played out. Yes, it gets you some press, but it’s been done for years and so far the gain for animal welfare has been slim to nil. Read more

Can’t we all just go back to getting naked for fun and/or money?

“Everyone at Wesson Attendance Center knows 17-year-old Ceara Sturgis is gay because she’s never tried to hide it.
But when Sturgis – an honor student, trumpet player and goalie on the school’s soccer team – wanted her senior photograph in a tuxedo used in the 2009-10 yearbook, school officials balked.”  Full Story

Stonewall Anniversary

Posted in Activism, Legal, LGBT Rights, News, Politics and Sex, You Fucked Up! with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 28, 2009 by girlonpiano

Today marks the 40th anniversary of one of the most important events in the history of LGBT civil rights.  Quick recap for those of you that don’t know – on this day in 1969, police aggressively raided the Stonewall Inn (a gay/lez/trans bar in New York City) and were met with fierce resistance and rioting that brought national attention to issues surrounding gay rights.  This event also spawned the traditional gay pride parades that still occur annually all over the country!

Rather than trying to rehash all the details that everyone else is writing about, I decided to post some great links and articles about it.  There’s lots of good info out there, but here are some of my favorites.
