FEMEN AND RUSSIANS COMBINE TO PROTEST AGAINST PUTIN’S WAR

FEMEN И РУССКИЕ ОБЪЕДИНЯЮТСЯ, ПРОТИВ ВОЙНЫ ПУТИНА

I am a bit late with this post, as the event took place on the 12th of March. I do apologize for the delay.

Я немного опоздал с этим постом, так как событие произошло 12 марта. Приношу извинения за задержку.

The demonstration was by the Russian protest and musical group Pussy Riot, in association with the Feminist movement, originating from Ukraine, FEMEN.

Демонстрация была организована российской протестно-музыкальной группой Pussy Riot совместно с феминистским движением украинского происхождения FEMEN.

The protest took place in Tbilisi (Georgia), with the themes of stop the war, more help from the EU and an appeal for NATO to close the skies over Ukraine.

Акция протеста прошла в Тбилиси (Грузия) на темы прекращения войны, дополнительной помощи от ЕС и призыва к НАТО закрыть небо над Украиной.

Another protest, by 50 FEMEN activists, took place earlier, on the 6th of March, on the Champs-de-Mars in Paris.

Еще одна акция протеста 50 активисток FEMEN прошла ранее, 6 марта, на Марсовом поле в Париже.

MESSAGES TO UKRAINE AND RUSSIA – AND THIS IS STILL A SPANKING BLOG

A Message For Ukraine

The above image was found at

THE FEMEN BLOG

Мені соромно і принижено говорити, що все, що я можу зробити, це підтримати і сподіватися на незалежність України. Як і багато хто в Західній Європі, я бажаю, щоб наші лідери зробили більше для підтримки вашої боротьби проти сил вторгнення.

And in English

I am ashamed and humbled to say that all I can do is send my support and hopes for the independence of Ukraine. Like many in Western Europe, I wish that our leaders here would do more to support your struggle against the invading forces.

A Message For Russia

Для граждан, журналистов и знаменитостей России, протестующих против вторжения в Украину. Мы видим риск ареста и преследования, на который вы идете, чтобы послание мира, которое вы несете, могло быть услышано во всем мире. Пожалуйста, имейте в виду, что мир может видеть вас, и лично я хотел бы приветствовать вас.

FROM THE GUARDIAN UK

FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES

FROM CNN

And in English

For the citizens, journalists and celebrities of Russia who are protesting against the invasion of Ukraine. We can see the risk of arrest and persecution that you are taking, so that the message of peace, that you are making, can be heard around the world. Please be aware that the world can see you and personally, I would like to salute you.

Some Spanking Images From Times Past

This is still a spanking blog, so let’s have some spanking content. FEMEN is a Ukrainian group, who protest for the rights of women, in ways that are hard to ignore. Years ago, they got the world’s attention with a spanking protest. Here are some images from that protest.

FEMEN have a blog and website that you can visit through this link

RED LIGHTS TO GET A GREEN LIGHT IN BELGIUM

Sex Work Is Set To Get A Better Legal Status In Belgium

Why do I care about this? I do not pay for, what I consider, sexual services but I do on occasions employ the skills of professional Dommes and Disciplinarians and they come under the classification of sex workers. Some of them do offer sexual services, I do not seek that part of their services, they are offered but are not compulsory. Many only offer BDSM services. Apart from the dress code being somewhat different, I do not see that there is much difference between a non sex service offering Domme and a professional Masseur but society here tends not to agree with me.

What is the situation at the moment?

At this time it is technically legal to participate in paid for sexual services in Belgium, both for the provider and the client. However, this law is overly simple and has a clause to stop a third party from profiting from this transaction. This was designed to penalize pimps and people traffickers and I agree with their activities being restricted or hopefully stopped. BUT, and it is a big but, this law was badly written and can be interpreted that anyone taking money earned from sex work can be prosecuted. For example, if a sex worker uses his or her hard-earned cash to buy a loaf of bread, then the bakery that sells that bread can be prosecuted for profiting from the earnings of sex work. This area of the law is at the discretion of municipalities (Towns and City councils) to apply or not apply as they see fit. As a result some local authorities have effectively totally banned sex work whilst others allow sex work on the professional’s own property or in a brothel or even in Red Light window areas, in some towns. There is a news article that explains this better than I can, it is linked below

NO MAN’S LAND: BELGIUM’S RED LIGHT DISTRICT

The Problem

This has left Belgian sex workers in a grey area of being neither officially employed nor unemployed or self-employed, although they are still expected to pay taxes on their earnings and I believe that most of them do. This has been a greater problem recently as due to a certain global pandemic many of them have not been able to work for long periods of time and due to their uncertain employment state, have not been entitled to any of the benefits afforded to others that have been effected by the crisis. There have understandably been some protests about this, such as the one in a news article that is linked below

SEX WORKERS PROTEST

What Is Happening Now?

The Justice Minister for Belgium, Vincent Van Quickenborne (Flemish liberal), will hopefully be getting the law changed to take away the vagaries about both the status of Sex Workers and where and when they can spend their taxed earnings. And about time too, in my opinion. You can read a short news article about this in the link below

TOTAL DECRIMINALIZATION OF SEX WORK IN BELGIUM

I hope that this post has left you more informed and hopefully not been too boring

AN UPDATE ON CHILD PREDATORS FROM JILLIAN KEENAN

In this post about NON CONSENTING, PUBLIC SPANKING OF CHILDREN I posted a video made by Jillian Keenan. It was about some evil people doing bad things to the under aged, that need to be stopped. Ms Keenan has posted an update on the situation and so I thought that it would be a good idea to let the viewers of this blog have a chance to see that.

Spanking Predators Update

Any ideas on how to help fight these people are welcome.

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM JILLIAN KEENAN – PLEASE SHARE THIS – NON CONSENTING, PUBLIC SPANKING OF CHILDREN IS UNACCEPTABLE

I was not planning to post today but I think that this is important. JILLIAN KEENAN is an international journalist, author, photographer and open Spanko. Yesterday, on her YOUTUBE CHANNEL, she posted a video highlighting a group of really bad people (Family Pro Spank Workshop) openly advertising, on FACEBOOK, an event involving non consenting children being stripped and spanked at a public event. Please watch this video and if you think it appropriate, post it on your own blog, twitter feed or other social media stream of choice and condemn such activities.

 

MAKE A STAND AGAINST NON CONSENT

 

 

Myself, I will be writing a strongly worded complaint to FACEBOOK, which on it’s own I expect will achieve absolutely nothing but if some of you out there are inclined to do the same maybe we can get someone to listen. Remember, one email is a waste of pixels but a thousand emails will get attention.

Post Update

 

I found it impossible to send an email to Facebook and so instead used their inadequate reporting system, which does not allow you to add details of why you are reporting the group. Then I posted the video on my vanilla Facebook time line. I hope that this will raise some eyebrows over this groups activities.

Ecce Homo – All This Over A Few Art Photos!

The last supper

This is one of the images in that was displayed in Belgrade, Serbia, called Ecce Homo, featuring the work of the Swedish artist Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin. The images are challenging to accepted Christian concepts but hardly OTT blasphemous.

But they caused quite a stir in the Balkan capital as written this article ­Blasphemous’ display enrages thousands in Belgrade. According to this article the reaction was large and nasty.

Around two thousand policemen were present to avoid violence breaking out, as thousands took to the streets to protest

and

The city had to cancel the gay pride parade fearing there won’t be enough policemen to keep order in the city

This is the artist who caused all the controversy

Personally I think that these religious nutters need to grow up. Are these images really anything more than one persons opinionated take on the subject of Christianity? I for one do not want to live in in a world where something so harmless causes such reactions and the thought that this is happening in Europe is sickening. I cannot say that I like the type of images exhibited but that just means that I would not go to the gallery. There are more important things to protest about.
