quote: ...women using sex and nudity for political ends.

That surprised me at first, since the only nudity I saw was very un-sexy. But then I remembered the Biology Museum orgy. Has anyone found a video of that?

In news reports they're usually described as "feminist," but we haven't said much about their feminism. It's not like the feminism I'm used to; is that my age showing? Are feminists now rallying around the word "pussy"? There was a time when female persons of my generation told me it was demeaning to call them "girls," and that I should say "women" instead. And later they didn't like that so much and wanted me to say "ladies." Now they seem to prefer "girls." But "pussy"? I feel really old.

Maybe women would know more about this aspect. Have any women even joined the discussion? I don't think so, based on the list of names, but you never know.
