Sex, Gender, Politics, and everything in between
La Fête du Slip
Gender & Sexualities Festival
7-9 March 2014
La Fête du Slip is a multidisciplinary festival positively celebrating all the diversity of bodies, genders, and sexualities. Over a weekend in March, La Fête du Slip presents films, concerts, parties, exhibitions, conferences, workshops, readings, and even culinary events! This year we explore themes such as BDSM, sex work or trans* identities.
This festival is for all intents and purposes the incarnation of this blog (http://anarchofeminist.tumblr.com) in an event. The author of this blog is the co-director of the festival. As we do not want to sell the event to corporate sponsors, nor do we want to have prices that prevent people from attending, are last hope for financing is in our audience and our fans all over the world. That’s why we launched a crowdfunding campaign:
This weekend, there is a national vote in Switzerland that calls into question the foundations of reproductive rights that have been established for decades. Another vote on the same day wants to limit immigration and make the already inhumane policies even worse. With such a revival of conservative ideas pushing back against the recent progress in women’s rights, LGBT rights, and anti-racism, it’s crucially important to support sex-positive culture in Switzerland. We are the only festival to present such a diverse and rich intersectionnally feminist program in this part of the country.
Thank you for your support. And feel free to come to Switzerland and participate! It’s gonna be awesome!
The main problem I have with Men’s Rights Activists is that their name really doesn’t do them justice. They’re Straight Cis White Men’s Rights Activists. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for the inclusion of trans* men in their spaces.
I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign to end the social stigma around black fatherhood. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for better pay and equal career mobility for men of colour. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists actively campaign for more gay men’s rights. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists advise others in their group on how using f*ggot to emasculate men who aren’t part of their cause is alienating and marginalising other MEN.
I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support victims of male rape unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of rape. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support male victims of domestic abuse unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of domestic abuse. Men’s Rights Activists are hypocrites and frauds.
They’re bitter privileged white men who don’t want to campaign for the rights of men — they want to campaign to keep their privilege unchecked and their ability to discriminate against others. If you want to be a real Men’s Rights Activist — be a fucking (intersectional) Feminist. Peace out.
my favorite scars are the stretch-marks on my breasts. when I was younger I became very suddenly aware of how rarely they’re shown in media, and spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out ways to hide them. that seems so silly to me now - this sort of scarring is so incredibly common!
It’s not only common but I find the uniqueness so beautiful. I’m glad you’ve realized how nice stretch marks can be and accepted your own. It’s important for us all to realize what the media shows us is in no way an accurate representation of real life. And lucky for us we have online communities like this one so that we can share and show each other what normal really is. Thanks so much for sharing your submission with us.

Part two of this scene brings us back to these two gorgeous trans men trying out some pretty athletic and adventurous positions, before trading off sucking each other’s cocks and jerking off to orgasm. Did you know these two are best buds in real life? I’d say these friends have some pretty awesome benefits.
I wonder how uncomfortable Katie would have gotten if one of them asked her about the state of her genitals at the moment.
this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1
White people are still the ~standard so that’s not so revolutionary.
A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes
A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes
A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes
A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes
A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes
That’s some bullshit right there.
