Getting a Drink!
The Telegraph takes an in-depth look at legalized prostitution in Germany - from the 12 story mega-brothels to outdoor sex boxes.
People think Amsterdam is the prostitution capital of Europe but Germany has more prostitutes per capita than any other country in the continent, more even than Thailand: 400,000 at the last count, serving 1.2 million men every day. Those figures were released a decade ago, soon after Germany made buying sex, selling sex, pimping and brothel-keeping legal in 2002. Two years later, prostitution in Germany was thought to be worth 6 billion euros – roughly the same as Porsche or Adidas that year. It’s now estimated to be 15 billion euros.

Sex, mathematics and brain formed the subject of the lecture offered by Georgina Rippon, of Aston University (United Kingdom), in occasion of the 15th general meeting of European Women in Mathematics, organised by the Centre Mathematics Research…
Gina Rippon, an expert in neuroscience at Ashton University, Birmingham, claimed that stereotypes such as women being good multitaskers have no scientific links.
Wouldja look at that. Science trumping feelz. Sex dysphoria vs gender trouble.
The author of the article doesn’t want to believe this, claims it contradicts earlier studies, but actually what “neuroscience expert” Gina Rippon is saying is entirely consistent with the data from those studies. We already know that experience changes brain wiring. She’s saying that the difference between men’s and women’s brains is caused by experience. Also, that the difference that exists is exaggerated. Well, props to the DailyMail anyway for reporting what the silly feminists have to say.
btw, I looked at the study referenced in the article above a few months ago and said the same thing as Rippon. Not saying I’m a neuroscience expert, but you heard it here first. http://pogoniptrail.tumblr.com/post/69010658756/thoughts-on-the-latest-brain-connectivity-study-sex
We’re all unicorns on the inside.
Guess which mythical creature I got on this silly quiz? Centaur! lol
Robin Morgan asks: What if human rights group Amnesty International decided to condone pimping? It happened when its document called for legalizing prostitution.

A protest at AI headquarters in London today. http://abolishprostitutionnow.wordpress.com/2014/02/09/march-8th-protest-of-amnesty-international/
Piers Morgan interviewed a Duke University student about how empowering porn is for her. “For me, shooting pornography brings me unimaginable joy. When I finish a scene, I know that I have done so and completed an honest day’s work. It is my artistic outlet: my love, happiness, my home.” An extended in depth look at the glamorous world of porn featured today on CNN.
Perhaps this and the recent spate of transgender stories on CNN is a cynical, desperate grab for ratings from a media outlet in decline. They’re looking for something sexy. CNN’s parent company is Time Warner. Last year they spun off Time Warner Cable, which reputedly at one point derived 1/3 its profits from porn, but it’s hard to know how much money these media conglomerates make from porn. Or this about liberal political correctness?
Can you use bipanromanticqueerfluid in a sentence?
The oil level in my car was a little low, and I didn’t have the correct type on hand. Luckily I had a bottle of bipanromanticqueerfluid on the passenger seat….
A cis cat scratched me and it drew blood, but a dab of bipanromanticqueerfluid confused those microbacteria so bad they couldn’t reproduce.
seriously if gender is a choice and “woman” is on equal footing with every other bipanromanticqueerfluid identity on the “spectrum” then you are by default suggesting that women born women choose to identify as woman and thus choose to be oppressed and are blaming us for the violence committed against us
how do you not fucking see how fucked up that is
Sex based oppression is no matter of choice.
These fucking gendersick idiots omg.
"Bipanromanticqueerfluid" Great word.
