FEMEN, so much better than Code Pink
You may remember FEMEN, they’re the political woman’s group that protests topless throughout European countries and other places that America protects. I always forget what they’re protesting because boobs, but whatever they hate I have vocally hoped for more of it, and my hopes have been answered. Recently the leader of FEMEN Chesty VonSeecups (I’m kidding, her real name is Alexandra Shevchenko but that’s a fucking ridiculous name for anybody who isn’t the President for Life of Belarus) gave an interview. Here’s an excerpt, it’s surprisingly terrifying:
What is the goal of your organization?
- A female revolution.
-How do you lead a revolution?
- Hell if I know…
Why don’t you just pull over and ask for directions, am I right?!
-Maybe it should be done the bloody way. Or on the other hand, may in a humanist way. Maybe it would be a direct war between men and women, a war against patriarchic traditions in society, which would lead to deaths because men would not desire to give in that easily (smiles).
A bloody uprising? Pbbt, we would crush you! You’ve got no upper body strength!
-Why have you chosen to express your protest in a sexual way?
-We did not plan to get naked at first. But then we understood what outrage was going on during 2012 elections. We started to act more roughly. We decided that we should get naked. A naked woman is a free woman.
That was actually an outstanding answer.
We may be naked in Ukraine, but if we go naked in Russia, we will get 12 days in jail and a deportation. And a fine of several thousand dollars. It is idiotism, we think.
I would imagine being deported from Russia is actually kind of a reward… but go on.
-Why don’t you like Euro-2012? Why did you throw its cup?
-Major sport events are usually sponsored by beers companies. The goal of these companies is to make people drunk. The Sex-industry is not far from behind.
It never is Chesty, it never is…
