soft core for children?

You are reading

Letter to editor:

I really resent all the ads with bare-breasted women. I didn't sign up for soft-core porn, for one thing. For another thing, it sends a TERRIBLE message to little girls, in particular, but also to little boys: a woman's only value is to pleasure men? One of the ads was for so-called, "intimate dating." That's sex hook-ups, in case you didn't know. If children are seeing these ads, I won't be able to recommend Marapets to any friends, adult or child. There are lots of healthy things to sell on Marapets. Women's breasts shouldn't be used this way; their purpose is the feeding of babies. Anything else is perverse, obscene and insulting to women.

physician, heal thyself

You are reading Phil has lost his mind, apparantly.

I went to his website today, looking to see what happened to a VERY abusive couple who torture their children. I think they ought to have called the police and had them arrested, based on the torture I saw in home video tape. I was curios about any follow up.

Then, I saw a question, apparantly a topic for a future show. I was dumbfounded, so I clicked on it.

Under the flash caption, "Be On The Show," they had form fields one could fill about the following "questions:"

be on the show

Are You a Lesbian Who Hates Men? Are you a lesbian who's mad at the world for everything people have done to you? Are you a self-proclaimed bitch who will argue with anyone? Do you know you have anger issues but don't know how to control yourself? Tell us your story.

This is what I wrote:

A "bitch" is a female dog: she is protective of those she loves. She will attack when provoked.

Lesbians don't hate men; they love women. The worst "man-haters" I've ever met were all heterosexual women or gay men: familiarity breeds contempt.

Many Lesbians and pansexual women fear men, just as many men (hetero or not) and almost all hetero women do. Men are only encouraged, in this society, to express 2 emotions: aggression and sexual arousal.

Any man we meet on the street is a potential rapist. Men are, statistically, more likely to commit violent crimes. Male heterosexuals commit most of the incest and child rape.

We don't hate men. Men hate themselves. We FEAR men.

But we aren't sexual with women because of MEN. Men are irrelevent to our love lives. We love women.

Why do you find it necessary to frame this argument this way? Why are you associating woman loving with man hating? Does everything have to center around men, including women who love women? Do you feel threatened by women who don't need you?

Why are you calling Lesbians bitches? Why do you seem to think we are "out of control?" Is it because we're out of YOUR control? Is that so important to you?

I can go months without thinking anything of consequence about any man. Do you see that as threatening: that you're just not that important to me?

Do you frame questions to Black people the way you've framed this series of questions to Lesbians? Do you use racial stereotyping to try to provoke something "worthy" of ratings? Do you do this with the disabled?

Then, why are you using stereotypes that were never true, and that were addressed by the Queer Liberation Movement more than 30 years ago?

Are you insecure in your own sexuality? Do you feel the need to abuse those who aren't like you, in order to force them to either conform to your comfort zone, or, otherwise, alienate them into disappearing from your field-of-vision?

How can you help heal the human mind, while being so blatantly unhealthy?

Hi everyone,

This evening (June 8) is the time to join with Albuquerque Pride and other members of the GLBT community for the commemorative walk and the dedication (groundbreaking) of a GLBT memorial as part of the Arts in the Park city project at Morningside Park.

Morningside Park was one of the first places Pride was held back in the 1970's and is recognized as the birthplace of Pride here in Albuquerque. Walkers will come from places where Pride started or ended over the years and arrive at Morningside park by 8:00pm. There will be a powerful candlelight vigil and a look back and forward at the GLBT Community. Reception to follow. The city of Albuqeurque Arts in the Park project worked with Pride to create the memorial.

If you want to be part of the commemorative walk from prior years Pride Parade sites to Morningside Park be at the park at 6:30PM. (Rides will take you to the start sites.)

If you just want to be present at the dedication and vigil it starts at the park at 8:00 PM.

Remember it's our history we talking about.

Hope to see you there.

Pledge-A-Picket Fundraiser

You are reading to Hold Pledge-A-Picket Fundraiser in Anticipation of Large
Anti-Choice Protest on Good Friday

Every year on Good Friday, anti-choice protesters hold a
demonstration at PPNM's surgical site in Albuquerque. Last year
183 men, women and children turned out to picket and pray - the
largest such gathering ever here. We're expecting another big
crowd this year.

For the privacy and safety of our patients, the clinic is closed
on Good Friday but we hold an annual Pledge-A-Picket fundraiser
to offset the loss of revenue. Individuals pledge to donate a
specific amount per protester - anywhere from five cents to two

This year we're expanding the Pledge-A-Picket time frame to
include all the protesters who show up the week of April 10-14.
Typically, we have 3-4 protesters per day. If you
Pledge-A-Picket, we'll count the protesters all week, add that
to the number who show up on Good Friday, and multiply the total
by the amount of your pledge to figure your contribution. If you
pledge 25 cents a picketer and we have 15 protesters during the
week and 190 on Good Friday, we'd multiply 205 x .25 for a total
of $51.25. You may put a cap on your pledge.

Email us at if you'd like to participate in
our Good Friday fundraiser. Please tell us how much you want to
pledge per picketer and if you'd like to cap the amount. We'll
notify you by email after Good Friday to let you know how many
picketers we had and the amount of your donation.

Last year we raised over $4,000 in pledges from our Action
Alert Network. These donations allow us to continue providing
PPNM's high-quality, affordable health care in New Mexico. If
you have questions, please call Development at 265-5976.

Thank you for supporting Planned Parenthood of New Mexico.
