Feminist Quotes
"I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a door mat or a prostitute." - Rebecca West.

"Women belong in the House... and in the Senate."

"I think it's about time we voted for senators with breasts. After all, we've been voting for boobs long enough."

    Letter from the Assistant Editor

    Suzy isn't available this week so I am taking over the newsletter for today.

    The Oscars are tonight and as usual I have no intention of watching it. Celebrity gazing and buzz is not my thing, and apparently a lot of other people feel the same way. The Oscars have been going downhill in recent years due to poor ratings and a lot of people dissatisfied with the results.

    I'm not surprised. The Oscars are basically a gimmick to sell movies to the mass populace. Movies that win big at the Oscars get bragging rights that boost their profits and sales. But most of the movies that win I don't really care for.

    Lets take the example of The Aviator (which won a tonne of Oscars several years ago). I've watched it 1.5 times and I have no intention of watching it again. It may have won awards but I couldn't care less about it. The Oscars tend to give awards to artsy flicks, those that are perceived as such at least, but that doesn't mean the movie is actually any good.

    In contrast to The Aviator I've watched The Hulk over twenty times, but it didn't win a single award and had horrible movie reviews. True, most of the movie was CGI, but the same can be said about a lot of blockbuster movies these days. There is no Oscar for Best CGI.

    Conclusions? Just because it wins an Oscar doesn't mean the movie is worth watching again and again. I'd rather watch any of the Indiana Jones movies a hundred times than watch an Oscar winner once.

    February 17th 2008 - The Sunday Edition
    Letter from the Editor

    I think my favourite article this week is "Get Great Abs - The Ultimate Guide to the Perfect Abdomen", which was a collaborative effort of several writers and myself. It details not only the health benefits of a muscular abdomen, diet, methodology and over 20 different abdomen exercises.

    I've been doing ab exercises for several months now, in addition to my weightlifting routine (see Weightlifting for Women), and I've seen some remarkable changes and made a discovery: Girls with six-packs are hot and I am now one of them.

    It happened last week when I looked in the mirror and realized: "Damn! I look hot!" Ever since then I've been riding a wave of giddy emotion, as if I had just climbed Mount Everest AND won the lottery. I can't stop smiling.

    Six years ago when I was in university and overweight from too much junk food and lack of exercise I would have never thought it possible. So to me helping to write "Get Great Abs" was part of a personal journey and a completion of that journey, but not the end. I feel as physically fit as I have ever been in my life. I have never felt stronger, faster or more flexible than I do right now, and I know if I keep this up my life will continue to improve.

    Now that I have reached my goal I want to help other people to realize theirs. I encourage everyone to at least read Get Great Abs - The Ultimate Guide to the Perfect Abdomen, and try to set a schedule for doing some of the exercises mentioned within and change your diet. If you stick with it you will be as happy as I am with the results.

    The Value of WebRing Advertising
    We'd like to take this moment to point out the value of WebRing's system of promoting websites.

    The Lilith eZine and Lilith Gallery Network currently pays 33 cents per day to promote the various webrings we manage, plus the yearly 2.0 membership fee of $24. It works out to roughly $144/year.

    If we went to Google Adwords and wanted to spend $144 on advertising, at 1 cent per click, we would get 14,400 clicks.

    On a monthly basis we get approx. 5300 clicks from WebRing (over 63,000 per year), plus WebRing boosts our Google ranking, which means LGN gets even more hits from Google. In 2007 LGN received over 1.3 million hits from Google searches.

    There are companies out there paying $30 to $50 US for a single text link (for one year) to their website. WebRing provides the same service for comparatively little.

    It is amazing to us that WebRing staff haven't clued in and promoted the benefits of advertising via WebRing. Imagine if large corporations decided to promote their products on WebRing and devoted just a portion of what they spend on TV advertising.

    We at LGN are currently contemplating DOUBLING our advertising expenditures on WebRing (just to see what happens).

    We've noticed in recent months that other WebRingites seem to be pulling back on how much they are spending on WebRing. Maybe it is the recession in the USA, but we think people should be doing more and spending more with respect to WebRing.

    We also like the idea that WebRing feels more like a community (even though we might not like some of our noisy neighbours). It reminds us of the Glory Days of Geocities, before they got bought out by stinking Yahoo Yuppies.

    We do like what Yahoo did with WebRing, buying it and transforming it with SSNB codes, but selling WebRing seems like they made a mistake when they could have grown WebRing and used it to rival Google's ad programs.

    Yahoo's ad program in comparison stinks. A shoddy Google replica, with ridiculous rules with respect to US residents only. (We went through a phase where we compared different ad programs and determined that all of them stink compared to Google.)

    Except WebRing. Which is funny, because WebRing markets itself as "Creating Communities, Connecting People", not as an advertising firm.

    Letter from the Editor

    We take a lot of things for granted in our western culture. Freedom of speech for example.

    You may think nothing of your ability to read things on the internet, but in some countries (depending on what you are reading) you can be sentenced to death.

    That is what has happened to Sayed Pervez Kambaksh, a journalist from Afghanistan who downloaded a feminist report about women's rights. He's been sentenced to death for supporting women's rights, which the Afghan government claims is a form of blasphemy.

    I'd like to know where it is written that women's rights is somehow blasphemous, but it does remind me of how low our own culture can sink sometimes. The Anti-Feminist movement (mostly made up of deadbeat dads who don't want to pay spousal/child support) who want to take away a woman's right to get a divorce, get child support or even make decisions like when or if to have an abortion.

    Imagine for a moment if the father had the right to decide if his sexual partner should have an abortion? To essentially force her into it.

    I am sure it happens already, wherein boyfriends force their girlfriends to have abortions, but what if she refused and somehow the man got the legal right to force it? That would be, essentially, slavery.

    And that is the problem some countries still face. Women's rights in Afghanistan is like emancipation from slavery, and trying to help free slaves or even reading about it, punishable by death.

    People think or say that feminism and women's rights are over, that we've won, but frankly we haven't even scratched the surface of the globe. We may have women's rights guaranteed by our western governments, but the global fight has only barely begun.

    And don't think for an instant that we ourselves have had much success either. How many female heads of state have we had in western culture? Kim Campbell of Canada was Prime Minister for a mere 6 months and Margaret Thatcher of Great Britain was Prime Minister for 11 years. That is it.

    Pretty pathetic when you think about it.

    Margaret Thatcher did prove however that women could be very successful as leaders.

    Letter from the Editor

    Of all the silly things people in North America do, I think Groundhog Day (which was yesterday, February 2nd) is one of the silliest. It apparently dates back to German Mennonites living in Pennsylvania and a folklore tradition that if the groundhog pops out of its hole in the ground on February 2nd and sees its shadow it means there will be 6 more weeks of winter. And if not, its a month and a half... What is the difference?

    By the time March 21st (the Spring Equinox) rolls around does it really make a difference? By that time we're all sick of winter anyway. Plus there's the whole March "In like a lamb, out like a lion" superstition. More nonsense to get people excited about Spring.

    Here's another one from Germany: Spring Fasching (it means festival). You dress up like monsters, run around the neighborhood and make tonnes of noise all in order to scare away the evil spirits of winter (and get candy from your grandparents). It is a lot like Halloween in many ways. It is also an excuse for teens and adults to get rip-roaringly drunk.

    I guess wherever you go you're going to see people having silly festivals (and getting drunk). Tis human nature to wanna have a good time!
