This is not satire, although it’s given me a few ideas
Translated from daily De Volkskrant in The Netherlands:
No women any more on the Jerusalem city bus
Rolf Bos – 05/09/12, 08:52
In the city where women are the majority, they are disappearing more and more from ads on the streets. This week the Israeli bus company Egged decided that they will ban an ad campaign with pictures of women on the sides of city buses in Jerusalem. The company fears vandalism by ultra-orthodox Jewish men.
Egged defies a ruling by the Israeli Supreme Court. The judges ruled two months ago that censorship of the female images in advertising is illegal. Egged, one of the largest bus companies in the world, however, has a creative solution. In Jerusalem, the green buses will have no more images of any humans – both women and men.
In Jerusalem, but also in other places in Israel like Bnei Brak and

In US election year, Peter sardonically examines American democracy and shows how the capitalist system controls our thoughts and actions so there are no real choices. He shows how puppet politicians are bankrolled by corporations and asks why we need these leaders at all. This is the same point I make in Womanifesto and we agree that modern leaders play the same role as kings, emperors and dictators did formerly.
For democracy to work, all citizens must be educated to understand the issues, yet critical thinking and logic are ignored and learning by rote is taught to millions. Joseph argues the US two party political system is a con – there is no real choice and all good change derives from pressure from below – not the Republican and Democratic parties.
He also shows how the big parties came together to set up and control the Presidential debates so killing intelligent discussion and stopping smaller parties getting airtime. This is exactly the same as in the UK and most other so-called democracies. Noam Chomsky has been saying this for years.
Even now as more and more species become extinct, the climate changes to who knows what and humanity teeters on the brink of disaster, most folk are more interested in inane celebrities, fashion and consumerism.
Peter also shows how religion creates an unthinking populace who do as they are told rather than questioning everything.
So if you care about the future, the ecosystem and your own minds – watch and engage with this film – what could be more important?
If this doesn’t upset you…
Treating women like dirt is hardly a new tactic for the fashion industry, with its long history of objectifying the female body, idealizing physically impossible beauty types and glamorizing violence against women. Bulgaria-based 12 magazine, however, has hit a new low with an inexplicable photo spread in its latest issue titled, “Victim of Beauty” [TRIGGER WARNING].
The six images are all close-up portraits of young, attractive white models sporting various gruesome injuries: one boasts a black eye, another a slit throat and a third sports a split lip and a bruised neck. Scrolling through this montage of burns, bruises and gashes, it’s easy to forget you’re looking at a “fashion” photo shoot; the images more closely resemble police files of horrendous domestic violence.
Were the magazine spread a deliberate attempt to raise awareness and generate conversation about our society’s failure to prevent…

This is a short trailer I made about my novel to get the idea across. The soundtrack starts after a bit 🙂
More weasel than pussy perhaps?
The symbol is an amalgamation of the sign for Venus/Feminity and a lollipop lady’s lollipop (crossing patrol warden)
Sharon Brough is the Ms.siah. She and her 13 female disciples set about making the future female. One of her women was formerly a lollipop lady.
I owe a great intellectual debt to my partner Sooz. She correctly identified REPRODUCTION as the key battleground in this crucial stage of human affairs.
When we look at the issues facing us at present, several interconnected problems loom large; Overpopulation, Anthropogenic Climate Change, War and Crazy Religions all threaten all life on this amazing planet.
And all these factors are related to human reproduction.
When women have full control of their own fertility, overpopulation will become a thing of the past. All evidence shows that birthrates drop when women are empowered.
Climate change is due to the unfettered growth in human numbers, industry and transport. When there are less people there will be less CO2 released into the atmosphere due to a reduction in the rearing of livestock for food and agriculture, less manufacturing of useless articles for profit for the few, less transport leading to more area for forests and wildlife.
War is almost always caused by men, usually for power and control of resources. The factors mentioned above are likely to lead to more and deadlier conflict. When there are less people there will be reduced pressure on the environment and more space.
Clearly we need to get men out of positions of power so they can’t start wars.
Nation states are also responsible for wars so the sooner we move on from this outmoded system of organisation the better.
The ‘Us and Them’ mentality is part and parcel of this medieval mindset and must be left behind if we want a future.
Finally, Crazy Religions provide the justification for all of the above. All the major religions are made by men for men. They are all misogynist and have led to the infantile mental states suffered by many of our fellow humans. They lay a death wish on humanity while they pretend to offer eternal life.
Even now, as the ecosystem struggles to cope with the pollution and poisons emitted by our insane industrial production, as the oceans are dying and we are witnessing the largest extinction event ever – at this very moment – male (and some female) nutters try to restrict abortion and deny women reproductive rights.
If I believed in a supernatural world I would say religions are the Devil incarnate. But happily I know there is no God or Devil therefore our problems are wholly caused by us.
So this means we humans can turn around this terrible state of affairs. We have the power – we can do it.
But we have to let women manage human affairs before it’s too late. As my American sisters and brothers might say, “We’re drinking in the Last Chance Saloon”
That is why we’re calling for a paradigm shift in human thinking and saying the Future must be Female.
Otherwise there will be no future for us all.
Religions must die so humanaity can live.
Let’s take the fight to the religions – let’s win the war for the future.
Jennifer Mason, crazy person and communications director for Personhood USA, said: “Personhood USA does not endorse political candidates, but we had hoped that Congressman Ryan would be a good influence on Governor Romney, considering Romney’s liberal abortion record.”
Mason added: “Reading today that babies conceived in rape should suffer the death penalty (my emphasis) under a Romney-Ryan administration is extremely concerning, and indicates that congressman Ryan’s pro-woman and pro-baby positions would have little influence if he wins the office of vice president of the US.”
Do these people campaign against the real death penalty? Of course not; their ideas are dangerous and ignorant – they have no morals but act holier-than-everybody-else.
Personhood is a ridiculous concept, but then that’s what defines “People of Faith” – they believe nonsense every day. they thrive on it – they love nonsense. Here’s a few examples; Virgin Birth, 3-in-1 God, Heaven, Hell, GOP, Armageddon, Transubstantiation, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Scientology, Mormonism, LDS,
What we need are more abortions, more contraception of all kinds and an awareness that human overpopulation will destroy the ecosystem for all life.
And to achieve this we need to work together to make religions a thing of the past like cannibalism, incest and forced marriages.
So decent folks everywhere – please argue for contraception – support women’s rights to abortion when they want it and oppose religion at every turn.
Educate your friends that religion and children do not mix.

Consider the sacred and secular stories on which our civilisations are based. Do they create equal
spaces for everyone to develop?
I’d say not. It’s so obvious, it’s the central contradiction in modern life.
The dominant stories are the elite’s greatest weapons against the people.
