US House of Representatives votes to freeze all federal funding for Planned Parenthood. It appears as though the vote was influenced by anti-abortionists who want Planned Parenthood defunded and have recently tried to discredit the organization by accusing them of “selling baby parts.”

Here’s why time is a feminist issue. Spoiler: women don’t get to have any.

The Moonlite Bunny Ranch, a legal brothel in Nevada, has unveiled a sickening new way to exploit women for money: The “America’s Next Top Virgin” competition. Contestants will be judged based on “hymen hygiene, poise under sexual pressure, degree of virtuosity, ability to resist temptation, non-intercourse sex skills, and finally, how they actually perform sexually when they lose their virginity to the highest bidder in a live Bunny Ranch Internet Auction.” Sign the petition to stop this horror show of commodification of human beings, representative of the reality of legalized prostitution.

“Stomping Johns: The demand side of prostitution.” Great interview with prostitution abolitionist Samantha Berg:

“In Portland, Oregon, the john-to-prostitute ratio is estimated at 20:1 — 20 johns to every prostitute — yet our words for these men are limited to ‘john’ or business terms like client and customer. There are dozens of ways to call women prostitutes (escort, streetwalker, whore, harlot, hooker, ho, call girl, courtesan, etc.) but a distinct lack of terms for the far more numerous side of the equation, the johns. Blame is still largely placed on women, but the radical feminist goal to make the millions of men who pay for sex visible and accountable for the first time in history has been speeding along successfully.”
