For Haiti

Hopefully all will work out for the best.

And a moment of silence for all who have died.

The Annoying Orange

Hey people, hey people!
I am great fan of the annoying orange. It's absolutely wonderful.

On bra colors on facebook

I've noticed a lot of bloggers criticizing the "post your bra color" facebook trend as just a useless and senseless way to promote breast cancer awareness.

I don't really get it. The message, at least the one I got, never mentions breast cancer. It's just about making guys puzzled as to why all the girls have colors on their statuses. One boy I know, not understanding, posted a color too.

It's a pretty silly thing, but fun and harmless. My color is fuxia. =)

P.S. Some commenters asked me for specifications about my genius essay. I'd gladly post it, but it' in Italian and traslating is a boring and stupid activity. Anyway, I talked about porn, religion, women's body and who owns it, rape, traditionalism, sex, work, the "women are women, men are people" thing....I guess that's all.

Watching the news

Here's what services news stations felt they had to do today:

1.(Reality show partecipant's name) has suceeed where most of us keep failing: losing weight during the hoidays. You may remember her as the nice fat one from "The Big Brother", but she's so no longer. (Various shots of her stick-thin in bikini). We will now talk to her and discover her secret:
Scantily clad girl: Oh, I'm an expert now. Eat fruit and vegetables, no sweets, a little carbohydrates. It works! Well, I'm so hungry I could eat a table, but it doesn't matter. Now I'm HOT. I'm showing them all what I can be!"

2. Sexy gradma! 80 years old lady in little northern town is very mucg not your typical old lady. She has been sending erotic messages to her 40 year old neighbour for months, and undressing in front of the window *laughs*. She's a very eccentric lady. Her last act was to enter his house, jump on him and have sex. Evidently not happy, the neigbour called the police.

3. Be sure to watch our brand new program, where we pair the most unlikey couples! (Women talks about how wonderful the program is going to be.)

Well, evidently there's not much going on in the world, huh?
Also notice that in Service2 very real stalking and rape were reported as funny. Reverse the sexes of the neighbour and the old one and see what would happen.

Feminist Debate in Class (Or where I brag about my genius)

Yesterday hell broke loose in class. The teacher had assigned a creative writing project about women's rights today. Most kids wrote about islamic countries, poligamy, veils and stuff.
I did a four page times new roman size 12 essay, in which I talked about women's situation in the Western world. Strangely, people actually listened while I was reading it. That alone I would have considered an accomplishment, but it turns out both the teacher and the students had something to say about it.

So, most girls agreed and said, with great vehemence, that the way things are now isn't fair. The majority of the boys did too...although a couple argued that it's innate differences and girls have their privileges too etc.

Well, the point is that it's really pleasant to see people intensely arguing over something I have said. The teacher was really striken. I don't think she had ever thought about this stuff. Neither had most of the students. In fact, people continued talking about it even after school.

All in all, I'm very satisfied.  I don't think we'd ever had debates at school that varied much from who's hotter than who.
Now everybody calls me "The Feminist". Not that I mind, since before I was called "Zappy."
