You never know what you’re gonna find when you’re trolling for SPEW…

So, I was just Googling “menstruate for peace”  looking for this, when the fifth hit down posed a question that just doesn’t get asked enough: “Why Chastity Belts?”

Yes Virginia, there is an online community of chastity belt aficionados, and yes, is definately NSFW.

    After some thought, I thought I’d shoot back an apology. My douche bag comment was divisive and stupid. I guess I was a little hot, I had to delete a bunch of comments from some folks that didn’t realize the piece was satire, and thought it was OK to throw around the “C” word. Again sorry.
    P.s as a sign of good will, do with this as you like. Sadly, it’s real (from the we-moon calendar)

    What is the We’Moon? We’moon is not just a calendar,
    it’s a way of life…

    * An astrological moon calendar
    * Ecofeminist appointment book
    * Daily guide to natural rythyms
    * Lunar perspective through the 13 moons of the year

    It also provides access to an international web of fabulous, creative womyn, with…

    * Art and writing from womyn around the world
    * Womyn-loving, Goddess inspired themes
    * An active network of womyn sharing work and ideas across the planet.

    What does We’moon mean?

    * We’Moon means “We of the Moon.” The Moon, whose cycles run in our blood is the original womyn’s calendar. Like the moon, we’moon circle the Earth. We are drawn to one another. We come in different shapes, colors, and sizes. We are continually transforming. With all our different hues and points of view we are one.
    * We’moon means “women.” Instead of defining ourselves in relation to men (woman means “wife of man” in Old English; female is a derivative of “male”), we use the word we’moon to define ourselves by our primary relation to the natural sources of cosmic flow (“we of the moon”). Other terms we’moon use are womyn, wimmin, womon, womb-one. We’Moon is a moon calendar for we’moon. As we’moon, we seek to be whole in ourselves, rather than dividing ourselves in half and hoping that some “other half” will complete the picture. We see the whole range of life’s potential embodied by we’moon, and do not divide the universe into sex-role stereotypes according to the heterosexual model. Instead, We’Moon is a sacred space in which to explore and celebrate the diversity of she-ness on earth. The calendar is we’moons’ space. We see the goddess equally in the sun and the moon, in the earth and the sky.

    It seems perfectly logical for douchebags to hate women. Not sure where being a Republican comes in.

  3. Niedermeyer says:

    I only linked to your blog because I couldn’t find the letter in the online issues of the Weekly, not because I was trying to associate your otherwise hilarious blog with our particular brand of woman-hating Republican douchebaggery.

    I have to say, I’m disappointed and even a little surprised to find out that the letter was satire. We’re still gonna “spew” it in our upcoming Hate Issue, so tell all your friends. Unless of course you don’t want them to think you’re some kind of woman-hating Republican douchebag.

    I believe that what you were looking for is this.
    p.s This was just a little exercise in poking fun at new age types. I am not some kind of woman hating Republican douche bag.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
