Blog Anniversary

Fireworks Celebrating the 4th of July, Miami, Florida, USA

Last Tuesday was my seventh blogging anniversary. I’ve been caught up with non-RV projects and forget my anniversary. But wow, seven years. I’m not sure how long I’ll go but for now I’m still here. Thank you blog readers!

Government Free VJJ

From Government Free VJJ
The Snatchel Project
“Let’s make a uterus or VJJ for each male rep in congress!

If they have their own, they can leave ours alone!

Follow these simple steps:
1. Knit or crochet a vagina or uterus
2. Print a message to enclose
3. Mail it to your male Senator or Congressional Representative
4. We’re in the process of arranging hand delivery to congressional offices in Washington, until then, go ahead and mail yours in!
5. Record your items in this spreadsheet so we can track which representatives still need to receive a “gift”!
6. Don’t forget to thank your representative if he respects women and supports our rights.

What a great idea! There’s instructions on how to knit and crochet on the site. I knit a uterus before for a friend getting a hysterectomy. It turned out super cute. I always get excited when activism and crafting join forces.

News Roundup

News Roundup

The Rush Limbaugh scandal. Wow, this one has been fascinating to watch. When I first heard his slut/prostitute comments towards Sandra Fluke it didn’t shock me. This is standard vitriol from him. Personally, I think his “feminazi” term is one of his worst.

I love how social media is fueling this backlash against Rush. From Think Progress:
EXCLUSIVE: 140 Companies Drop Advertising From Rush Limbaugh [Update: 142]
“ThinkProgress has obtained an internal memo from Premiere Radio Networks listing 96 national companies that have “specifically asked” their advertisments not be played during the Rush Limbaugh Show. Premiere is the distributor of Limbaugh’s program. The advertisers have also requested to be excluded from other right-wing hosts including Michael Savage, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity. According to the memo, the listed companies’ advertisements should be excluded from these programs because they have been “deemed to be offensive.”


Previously, ThinkProgress has reported that 50 companies requested their advertising be pulled from the Rush Limbaugh show following his sexist attacks on Sandra Fluke. The publication of the memo adds an additional 90 companies to the list of companies that have dropped Limbaugh”

Have you heard about the KONY2012 video? I saw a ton of posts about it on Facebook. If you haven’t Jezebel has a somewhat snarky article. (I do love snark.)

Think Twice Before Donating to Kony 2012, the Charitable Meme du Jour
“I admit that I instinctively hated the Kony 2012 Campaign as soon as I watched 15 seconds of the effort’s new viral video, produced by non-profit Invisible Children, which pledges to make extremely evil Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony famous, “not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice.”

Okay, to be perfectly honest, I was skeptical before I even pressed play, since no less than 15 of my Facebook friends had posted about the video, beseeching everyone to “stop tweeting” and pay attention to the video’s 30 minute message. Fine, I thought, clicking on the video and wondering why the people who usually bombarded me with cat memes and status updates about getting high and eating McDonalds were suddenly fervent supporters of Ugandan children.”

Erm, I’m one of those people who posts cat memes… Anyway. I wasn’t going to post about Kony2012 because it’s been reported all over. But then I read this:

From Huffington Post:
Jason Russell Arrested? Co-Founder Of Invisible Children, ‘Kony 2012′ Creator, Not Charged In San Diego
“Jason Russell, the co-founder of Invisible Children, the advocacy group behind the “Kony 2012″ viral video, was detained and taken by police to a medical facility for evaluation on Thursday morning after he was reported to be in his underwear, yelling incoherently and disrupting traffic in a San Diego neighborhood.

Law enforcement officials say there are no charges pending against Russell.

Lt. Andra Brown of the San Diego Police Department told The Huffington Post that a 33-year-old white male was not arrested but “transported to a local medical facility for evaluation and treatment.” She would not confirm the identity of the man involved in the incident, but various media outlets report that it was the 33-year-old Russell.”

HP has a video allegedly of Russell naked outside having what looks to be some kind of fit. I certainly didn’t see any underwear. This is strangely compelling. If true what is going on here? This KONY2012 story just keeps getting weirder.

From Salon:
NSA whistle-blower: Obama “worse than Bush”
“Thomas Drake, the whistle-blower whom the Obama administration tried and failed to prosecute for leaking information about waste, fraud and abuse at the National Security Agency, now works at an Apple store in Maryland. In an interview with Salon, Drake laughed about the time he confronted Attorney General Eric Holder at his store while Holder perused the gadgetry on display with his security detail around him. When Drake started asking Holder questions about his case, America’s chief law enforcement officer turned and fled the store.”

This is a good article on the hardship whisteblowers face. Drake talks about his disillusionment in Obama. I can relate to that. But don’t think I’m letting Bush off the hook here. I just think Obama is picking up where Bush left off in many areas including prosecuting whistleblowers.

Revisiting American Idiot

Green Day American Idiot

I loved Green Day’s American Idiot so much I saw it again. This time I went with a couple girlfriends to Denver to see it. The show is still kick ass and revolutionary!

Of course the NYC version with sex god Billie Joe as St. Jimmy was better. (obligatory OMG that man is so fucking sexy comment here) But the Denver version still rocked. The actors were good, the singing was great, the choreography a delight to watch. The stage wasn’t as high up but that didn’t hurt the performance. I was relieved that Extraordinary Girl was performed with the two actors in the air. And just like the first time I cried during the Time Of Your Life encore. Last Night On Earth was performed on the stage instead of a raised platform like in NYC. The scene still was hauntingly erotic.

There’s so much to love about this musical-the music of course, the live band on stage, the grunge costumes, the angst, the sex, drugs and rock and roll. I bought the soundtrack after seeing it this time and have been grooving out to it for days. I also loved how the audience was filled with cute punk rockers. Being surrounded by Manic Panic’d hair, piercings, punk band tshirts, high heels and fishnet stockings-now that’s my kind of theater experience!

Just as before I highly recommend this musical! You can check out the tour dates here. My original American Idiot post is here.

Review: Panties A Brief History

Review: Panties A Brief History

Sarah Nanette reviewed Panties A Brief History for me. You’ve heard from her before in my Interview With A Sissy post.

One would think that a 128-page book about one’s favorite subject would take less than nine months to read. But like sipping a fine cognac, that is how long it took this sissy to read Panties, A brief history by Sarah Tomczak and Rachel Pask.

As someone who believes the Victoria’s Secret catalog is more arousing than a men’s magazine or internet porn, I found Panties to be a delightful stroll through the many styles and moods of one of my two favorite garments (the bra being the other). Although it is unbecoming of a sissy to boast, I daresay I am somewhat of an expert in the field, owning upwards of 500 panties. Yet more than half of the panties pictured and discussed in this book are unlike anything in my collection.

While the book has a whimsical air appropriate for the wispiness of the subject, it is thoughtfully crafted and chock full of curious facts. The crotchless panty, now thought of to be racy at best and most likely tacky, was actually an invention of the supposedly prudish Victorian era, the breeze counted on to keep a woman’s nether regions fresh in a time of less frequent bathing. And the word “flattering,” according to Panties, originates from the 1920s, when flappers sought clothing that eliminated female curves. As for the origins of “parachute,” well, you will simply have to read the book.

The chapter on thongs leaves little of a woman’s backside to the imagination, as one would expect. On the other hand, the “power pants” chapter, largely devoted to girdles and other controlling garments, is accompanied by pictures that I remember from childhood in underwear ads in the newspaper.

There are definite British overtones to Panties, not only in some of the department stores mentioned, Marks & Spencer, for example, but also brand names like Sloggi, which I was unfamiliar with. I also learned the word “smalls” is a British euphemism for panty. And the queen has a panty designer come to her so that she need not shop in public!

There is even a two-page spread on the Hanty, a do-it-yourself panty made from handkerchiefs that was as intimidating to me as a knot-making class in Boy Scouts would be.

My favorite panties in the book are those designed by Damaris Evans, whose fashion line is known by her first name. Damaris loves bows on the backside of panties, as well as lace-up backs that display a good deal of what she refers to as “bum cleavage.” Yet the latticework laces make the semi-exposed bottom seem elegant rather than overtly forward.

I recommend Panties to anyone with an interest in the female form, and how society’s views toward women have been partially reflected in the evolution of panty fashion.

RIP Edna Milton Chadwell

RIP Edna Milton Chadwell

From The Telegraph:
Edna Milton Chadwell
“The Chicken Ranch served the men of La Grange — a town of several thousand people between the Texan cities of Houston and Austin — from 1915 to 1973. The establishment had got its name during the Depression, when clients who had no money paid for the girls’ services in farm produce, notably with chickens which were then used for egg production. It was said to be the oldest operating brothel in America when, in August 1973, it was closed down as a result of an exposé on Houston’s KTRK-TV by the investigative journalist Marvin Zindler.


The brothel apparently enjoyed a roaring trade among local businessmen and students from the University of Texas and Texas A and M; it is even said that a nearby military base laid on a helicopter to ferry soldiers to and from their trysts. “We weren’t ostracised one bit,” Edna Milton claimed. “It was just as if I had a grocery store or an office or a restaurant.””

My mother loved musicals and Dolly Parton so I grew up singing the songs from “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas”. Looking back I don’t think I fully grasped what a whorehouse was. To me it seemed more just like a house of women roommates. I loved the songs and the pretty dresses and how the women lived communally.

Years ago I found one of the Chicken Ranch tip boxes on Ebay. Determined to win it I bid a large amount but ended up winning it for a bargain. I use it as my jewelry box and it’s one of my prized possessions.

I particularly like Chadwell’s quote about the casual acceptance of the Chicken Ranch in the community. I’d like to see a future where sex work businesses are seen as just that-businesses.
