Internet Defense League Launch

Internet Defense League Launch

From the Internet Defense League:
“It was epic. While member sites broadcasted their support, we blasted our “cat signal” into the sky in cities around the world (on Batman’s opening night!)

Though the launch of a grassroots campaign to protect the Internet is worth celebrating, there’s nothing like an IRL event to feel the power of the Internet community. We had such a great time at the Internet Defense League launch parties that we thought we’d share a few highlights.”

You can still join this great group here. There’s now cool swag for donations including a mini cat signal.

Sex News Roundup

Sex News Roundup

Via The Philip DeFranco Show:
Will you still medal in the morning?
“Home to more than 10,000 athletes at the Summer Games and 2,700 at the Winter, the Olympic Village is one of the world’s most exclusive clubs. To join, prospective members need only have spectacular talent and — we long assumed — a chaste devotion to the most intense competition of their lives. But the image of a celibate Games began to flicker in ‘92 when it was reported that the Games’ organizers had ordered in prophylactics like pizza. Then, at the 2000 Sydney Games, 70,000 condoms wasn’t enough, prompting a second order of 20,000 and a new standing order of 100,000 condoms per Olympics.


The challenge athletes face is what to do with their urges and when. “If you don’t have discipline, the village can be a huge distraction,” Solo admits. Some swear off sex until their events are done; others make it part of their pre-event routine. American shot-putter and silver and bronze medalist John Godina thought he’d seen it all in Atlanta: late-night hookups, friends disappearing for days at a time. But he hadn’t seen anything like the dorm room in Sydney he shared with a javelin thrower, which had instantly become a revolving door of women without backstories. “It’s like Vegas,” Godina explains. “You learn not to ask a lot of questions.” ”

There’s no real news to this story. It’s all just fun, juicy gossip about Olympians having sex. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

From Common Dreams:
Pussy Riot Prosecutor Calls for 3-Year Jail Term: ‘Feminism Is a Mortal Sin’
“Russian prosecutors on Tuesday called for a three year jail term for three members of punk band Pussy Riot. Prosecutors accused the band members of insulting Russian Orthodoxy and posing a danger to society, after performing one of their songs in a Moscow cathedral. The defendants, however, argue that their song titled, “Virgin Mary, Chase Putin Out”, was not an act of religious hatred, but an act of political protest.


“All the defendants talked about being feminists and said that is allowed in the Russian Orthodox church,” said Yelena Pavlova, a lawyer for several of the nine victims who said they were insulted by Pussy Riot’s performance. “This does not correspond with reality. Feminism is a mortal sin,” she said.”

I’m glad to see this story getting so much press. Three years in prison for singing a political song in a church? Damn. Let’s hope they’re found not guilty. As a proud feminist I find it offensive to call feminism a “mortal sin”. What an idiot.

From Laughing Squid:
Half-Drag, Men’s Faces Half Made up as Their Female Alter Egos
“Half-Drag is a wonderful ongoing series by New York City-based photographer Leland Bobbé where men’s faces are half made up as their glamorous female alter egos. You can check out all of the images and make a donation to this non-commercial project at Bobbé’s website. ”

This is a great gallery. I’d love it if there was some day an accompanying drag king series as well.

From Neatorama:
Penis Snake
“Biologist Juliano Tupan discovered a rare species of wee animal in the Amazon that looks quite happy to see him.

It’s an exciting discovery for science … and an arousing news for the Interweb who couldn’t stop giggling because the animal, named Atretochoana eiselti, looks just like a … ehm, penis.”

And it does look like a penis. Funny.

Happy Chicken Pride Day!

I love this vid and Randy Rainbow’s my favorite new YouTuber.

“All these gay guys in suits are here with their hags.” Awesome! Seriously, more activists need to get jobs at Chick-fil-A and do this. That would be epic.
