Yeah! Germany’s Rebellious New Feminists

-Young and self-assured, feminists have started social discourse in Germany.

Femen exists in Germany for just one year, with about 30 women between the ages of 18 and 40 who are united in the fight against male domination. Wherever they appear, they find themselves in the limelight.

There is also a protocol in case of arrest: to do everything possible to prolong the protest. As soon as no cameras around, they act normally again.

The group’s ideological framework is just as simple as the rules for the topless protest. The Ukrainian founders have established three goals for Femen: the fight against forced prostitution, the struggle against the oppression of women by religion, and resistance against all manner of dictators. If they are going to use their bodies as banners, they might as well aim for some lofty goals.

Femen, Germany counts on you!

Femen Hijacks ‘Germany’s Next Top Model’

VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 6.0/6 (1 vote cast)

The German hit television show “Germany’s Next Top Model” ended with a spectacular finale on Thursday night, but not because of an unexpected winner or other such publicity stunt. “Germany’s Next Top Model” is produced by Heidi Klum, a former model which – to my opinion – is everything but intelligent. So is the show, screaming girl, the thinner the better. Femen protests against «Germany's Next Topmodel»Since the first season of the model casting show aired in 2006, it has been criticized for setting a dangerous example for young women in Germany. Klum has also come under fire for her harsh and condescending treatment of “her girls,” as she dubs the show’s participants — many of whom are minors, like this season’s winner, 16-year-old Lovelyn.

In an interview with the weekly news magazine Stern this week, Klum said that her job required her to be honest with the participants. “If they want to eat four donuts a week and too much bread and cake, and if their body and skin suffer because of that, then I have to tell them that this is not the right job for them,” she said. Isn’t she stupid?

Fuck you, Putin! Bravo Femen!

Again I am proud of my sisters from Femen when they attacked dictator Putin, who is fully responsible that the harmless women-groop Pussy Riot has been sentenced to prison in an unfair trial. Here is what just happened:

Femen vs Putin

Activists screamed with voice of the nation ” fuck you, dictator!”. After incident Putin and Merkel left the place to follow the plan of visiting. FEMEN calls Russia to scream “Go to hell, dictator” with all 150 millions of voices! If he will not hear that then to send him there against his will. No dictatorship, homophobia and theocracy. Fuck Kreml, FSB, Russion Ortodox Church and other groups of offenders. Fuck Putin! Viva Free Russia! Sextremists who attacked Putin are arrested and they are waiting for the revenge to them from police.

Femen vs Putin 1

Mrs Merkel – since you are a woman you hopefully told that bastard a few words!

Solidarity with Amina!

Rating: 5.5/6 (5 votes cast)

Amina, 19, was delivered her to a psychiatric hospital after she posted topless photos of herself to the Femen web page.

aminaAmina with the message “My Body is My Own and Not the Source of Anyone’s Honor,” scrawled in Arabic across her chest.

Amina disappeared a few days after her March 16 appearance on the popular Tunisian television talk show, during which she explained, with her face blurred to protect her identity, her decision to join Femen.

One of the people who kidnapped Amina has been boasting that they did it for ‘her own good, but it is not quite clear if that is true.

It was reported further that Amina’s Femen page was later hacked and defaced with citations from the Quran.

Many Moslems already said that Islam should not be blamed for what a few idiots do in the name of God.

Happy Birthday, Jana Zhdanova!!

VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 5.3/6 (7 votes cast)

Jana 2Today is the birthday of Jana Zhdanova, a brave Ukrainian feminist and member of Femen. You may have noticed a recent blog here posted by my clever friend and colleague Sally about the Femen protest of former Italian president Silvio Berlusconi during his audacious bid for re-election after being indicted and tainted by scandal. The topless female protesters were arrested by the Italian police, shamefully man-handled, and held without charge pending the outcome of the election. They have only recently been released from police custody in Milan. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the group Femen, it was founded in the Ukraine in 2008 by Anna Hutsol, who became aware of the sad stories of Ukrainian women who were sent abroad, victimized by the sexual tourism trade rampant in the Ukraine. Femen 1After failing to attract significant attention to their cause when they protested in their underwear, Oksana Shachko bared her breasts at a protest in Kiev in August 2009. From then on members began going topless and painting their bodies with slogans to attract the press to their movement. It worked. Made up mostly of Ukrainian college-age women and students in their early twenties, the original members of Femen began attracting worldwide attention to their growing list of causes and the group gained more members and more influence. The members of Femen have also been arrested and jailed on numerous occasions for their topless political activities. Jana Zhdanova whose birthday we are celebrating today has spent the most time behind bars of any of the group’s members. On 26 July 2012, a topless Jana Zhdanova, attacked Orthodox Christian Patriarch Kirill I of Moscow, while he was visiting the Ukraine. Zhdanova had the words “Kill Kirill” painted on her back and screamed “Get Out!” to the ‘Patriarch of Moscow and all the Rus’. She was arrested and sentenced to prison for fifteen days for her actions.

Femen 2The stated goals of the organization are “to shake women in Ukraine, making them socially active; [and] to organize in 2017 a women’s revolution.” However, the group’s main objective is the opposition to patriarchal society and religion everywhere and the demeaning position women find themselves under men’s domination worldwide. The movement spread to France when Inna Shevchenko left the Ukraine and went to Paris to set up FEMEN France, a training center for topless activists. The international training center opened on 18 September 2012. Since then support for the movement has spread. The organization said it was setting up international branches in Warsaw, Zurich, Rome, Tel Aviv, and Rio de Janeiro. Early in 2013 FEMEN claimed to have members in Brazil, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Switzerland, Italy, Bulgaria, and Tunisia. Jana 3In a 2010 interview Anna Hutsol said that in addition to 20 core organizers there are 300 activists in Kiev, as well as a social network based on ‘vkontakte’ of about 20,000 persons. Since early 2011 various sources state that in an interview Anna Hutsol claimed that the movement has 150 thousand supporters worldwide. In October 2012 the organization claimed it had about 40 topless activists in Ukraine, and another 100 who had joined their protests abroad. Though opposed by many who are offended by their manner of protest, the leaders of Femen respond: “This is the only way to be heard in this country. If we staged simple protests with banners, then our claims would not have been noticed”. The organization plans to become the biggest and the most influential feminist movement in Europe.

So Happy Birthday to Jana today and may her sisters in Femen continue to change the world one topless protest at a time!

Basta Berlusconi!

Rating: 4.5/6 (2 votes cast)

Three topless members of the feminist movement FEMEN tried to attack Silvio Berlusconi.

2femen-berlusconi

The young activists, who had the message “Basta Berlusconi” (“Enough with Berlusconi”) 1_femen-berlusconiwritten on their backs, were quickly held and dragged away by police. Law enforcement officials struggled to cover the women with their jackets as ordinary people queued to vote.

Instead, as Italians head to the polls on Feb. 24 and 25, the result is anything but certain. 3femenBersani has spent much of the past two months watching Berlusconi close the gap between them.
I wonder how a man who is facing trial for underage prostitution even is allowed to candidate?

I support the feminist group ‘Femen’ by shouting; “Basta Berlusconi” – you are a sick fornicator! Italy still pays for the political and financial mistakes you made. Bunga Bunga instead of financial consolidation. berlusconi-bunga-bungaEurope is afraid of what might happen….
