“Sexuality is to feminism what work is to Marxism… the molding, direction, and expression of sexuality organizes society into two sexes: women and men. This division underlies the totality of social relations.”
Catharine MacKinnon, Toward a feminist theory of the state
Some years ago I began an unexpected journey down the feminist rabbit-hole. It was in 2014 when my Grandma asked me about the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest and I found myself unable to explain who the winner was: Conchita Wurst, a man who dresses like a woman and wears make-up, but sports a beard.

Another young millennial has reportedly sold her virginity for millions on the famed site Cinderella Escorts.
Back in April, a Hong Kong businessman paid $2.5 million for an 18-year-old Romanian model’s virginity. Just yesterday, we outlined that millions of millennials in the United States could be trading sex for their next debt servicing payment on a website called SeekingArrangement.com. As what we believe, the trend is clear and millennials are resorting to sex for a real simple get-out-of debt option or the chance for a better life, as their future economic prospects are quite dim.
The latest demand for virgins is coming from a businessman in Abu Dhabi who has agreed to pay $2.9 million (€ 2.5million) for the virginity of a 19-year-old part time student and model living in California. The model named Giselle,19, is astounded by the overall outcome of the auction and says a Hollywood Actor and Russian Politician were also in the running. She says this is “a dream told true” and plans to use the money for — you guessed it— tuition fees and travel. Perhaps, she’ll be one of the few millennials enjoying avocado and toast for breakfast for the rest of her life.
Als westerse vrouw zonder hoofddoek ben je loslopend wild. Dat zegt ex-moslima en feministisch activiste Zana Ramadani in Allah in Europa. Elke zondag, 20.15 uur NPO 2 VPRO Reisseries
Posted by VPRO on Sunday, October 15, 2017
Allah in Europe, the Dutch Public Broadcaster documentary TOC mentioned before, yesterday published a new episode. After the ‘cultural enrichment’ of marrying three wives and having nine children while being on welfare in Sweden, it was now time to talk about Germany. The full episode can be found here.
The selected fragment is an interview presenter Jan Leyers has with Zana Ramadani. She is introduced in the context of the 2015 new-years eve sexual assaults in Cologne. Note that only the ones in Cologne are mentioned: not any of the others during the same time, or since.
The documentary then cues Zana Ramadani, narrating that: “To Zana Ramadani, an ex-Muslima and feminist activist, what happened wasn’t a surprise. She knows, from experience, how different a woman with, and without a headscarf is treated on German streets.”
Coming to a country near you (after the greatest financial collapse in world history or even before)…
All twelve women who work at the “Show Malilo Night Club” brothel in Arauca, Colombia are from Venezuela. As Venezuela’s socialist economic crisis continues, many Venezuelan women have turned to the sex trade in neighboring Colombia to eat and provide for their families.
“We’ve got lots of teachers, some doctors, many professional women and one petroleum engineer,” brothel owner Gabriel Sánchez said of the women who sell their bodies for $25 an hour. “All of them showed up with their degrees in hand.”
