Relevant issue related to recent commentary

Disturbing. The Whitehouse has been trumpeting away about bringing freedom and democracy to the world, but is at this very moment trying to block UN documents that ensure women's freedom.

The US Government has insisted a United Nations document on women's equality makes clear that abortion is not a fundamental right... smh

This latest infringement on human rights has implications for women everywhere. The UN is, or was supposed to be, representative of many nations. If such a document is passed by the UN, it effects not only women in the US but women all over the world. And this is indicative of a, eek, general conservative global trend. Women's rights are quietly and insidiously under fire. Women make up just over half of the worlds total population, a huge group of people that encompasses all ethnicities, all nationalities and all religions.

It is not hard to see why a predominantly male administration wants to control women's lives;

Women now own about 2 per cent of all land but produce half the food grown, according to UN figures.

In many societies, the right for women to own and inherit property is neglected and in some countries it is forbidden.


So, a male administration seeking to "rebuild" the world is using the old "bash the girls" card to try and garner support from other men who would otherwise be in opposition to US administrative "democracy plans".

Another reason why we should be writing 50-50% govt gender representation into our worlds constitutions. Otherwise we just end up with boys trying to pass off trash like that, flanked by girls who only manage to stay "in with them" by agreeing with everything the boys say. Like Sauerbrey and Rice.

Anything less then 50-50% gender representation in governing bodies signals a pattern of imbalance, which intensifies over time. Until we invariably end up with war. I'm really sorry all you peaceful men out there - but you are just going to have to campaign harder to get your sisters into parliamentary, governmental and UN positions. Otherwise we will see what we see happening all over the world right now; a handful of male powerbrokers flanked by a few minority representatives who survive by telling the boys what they want to hear; "oh my, what a big war you have" and "goodness! How huge is your revolution!". Flanked by tokenism.

(Yes, you revolutionists need to give this some serious thought. Just look at the Ukraine, still has a male president. And how many females in his cabinet aye? Exactly. What was the point in going to all that trouble of overthrowing the old regime if people are just going to recreate the same old thing. Now change can be good so I'm not knocking that, I'm just saying - how are we going to replace the things we remove? And what are we going to replace the removed things with?)

I find it funny the way the US feels it can dismiss stuff that the rest of the world feels is relevant like Kyoto and the proposals for an international crimes court - through invoking the 'sovereignty' card - yet feels at the same time it can dictate terms to the rest of us on matters like abortion, which extend US opinions onto OUR turf.

What is good for the goose ...

For the record: I am 100% for abortion, with the only limit being perhaps how far into the term a pregnancy has carried.

There you go Emigre. With a 100% abortionist like Bruno at your side, you cannot fail to spread the message far and wide, except "perhaps" to the next generation.

Now without attempting to infringe on your right to discuss what is no doubt a weighty subject on your own blog, I respectfully suggest that we steer the subject back to Iraq.

another fantastic post by the socialist emigre. i agree with you. all girls should actually be forced to abort their first child so they will better understand their rights. i dont care that the suicide rate of women that have had abortions is like 1000 times higher than that of women that haven't. abortions should be legal and free and embraced all over the planet. china has the right idea. they are only allowed 1 child, so why buy condoms if the government will pay for you to get sucked out weekly? i don't understand why your man hating rant made no mention of any rights a father should have about abortion or what ethical issues should be address. normally i would say that emigre has once again posted about something she has no idea about, but i have a feeling that emigre has seen the ol' abortion doctor several times per month. do these ulta feminists ever close their legs?

i find emigres comments quit humerous. she goes insane whenever a terrorist is killed in iraq, but how dare anyone say that killing babies shouldn't be a constitutional right. you are filled with so much hate and anger inside. why are you so messed up mentally? what did someone ever do to you to screw up your head and make you such a vicious and hideous person? you really hate everything about the world. i haven't seen a positive post from you EVER! why i still read this poorly written crap is beyond me since it is only meant for people to feel as bad about the world as you do. why dont you ever mentioned anything positive about the world? everything has to be anti-america, anti-democracy, anti-man, anti-this, anti-that. always another thing to protest, another american flag to burn. i feel sorry for people like you. I wish some other people would actually contribute to the blog some of their more positive perspectives. i've heard enough from this weasel.

Hey Em chill out! No need to get worked up like that..
As I understand, Abortion is useful at times..
1. Cases of Rape (and the mother doesnt want the child).
2. When pregnancy constitutes a hazard on the mother's health (and the friggin' husband forgot to put on a rubber, oh and doesnt go the Moore/Kerry way)

and more i cant remember right now.. my knee hurts like hell. was kicked to shit 40 minutes ago.

anyways I'll drop on by when I get some painkillers and a grip-bandage applied.

see ya take care.

bruno, was the US the only nation not to sign the kyoto protocal? australia didnt, china didnt, almost all eastern european, middle eastern, asian, african, and south american nations didnt. why arent you complaining about them? and the US doesn't take its cases to the international court, so whats the big deal? because europe decides for something, the US should be forced to accept every idiotic idea belgium comes up with? and i agree with the other post....you are probably anti-death penalty, but 100% pro abortion. thats how you liberals are, a bunch of jokes.

emigre, im glad to see that you're getting laid. perhaps that will make you relax more.

 
#3/02/2005 10:03:00 pm Assalam Aleikom Blogger richsanter

is this blog supposed to be about abortion and emigre's sexual history, or about iraq? i think we should get back to the subject, as amserdam suggested.

 
#3/02/2005 11:29:00 pm Assalam Aleikom Anonymous Anonymous

Em,

While I agree with you, I also think that you are over reacting. There is no such thing as instant change in social values. There may well be times of instant release, but this is only existing values coming into the light of day. Let's face it. We have been a world of male dominated chimpanzees for centuries. We are evolving into bonobos, which is a good thing. But it will take time. I think most changes of this magnitude take 200-300 years to accomplish. There is nothing GWB can do to stop the inevitable. At best, through his postion of power, he can forestall certain details for a few years.

Emigre was right to bring up this US interference in a women's rights issue, coming so soon after a discussion on gender balance in the Iraqi assembly/parliament. It is important background.

Some of the commenters here are, to say the least, disrespectful of the service Emigre has put in to greater international understanding of Iraq. I don't know many other places that allow such mixed opinion.

I hope they don't put you off, Emigre.

0023, if you will not pay your hard earned dollars to read and or listen to Emigre speak about sexual and other issues, then you are nothing but a Nazi.

0023, i dont know why emigre went crazy and made all these weird posts about abortion and her sexual fantasies, or whatever it is supposed to be...but i can't imagine it was because of you. plus, she apologized for her recent comments, so i think everything is better with her brain now. i hope. Personally, this is the most interesting posts she has ever made.

personally, i dont care who emigre is having sex with or what her views on abortion are. she should keep her sexual acts to herself. i think she shouldn't be allowed to make any more posts on the blogroll because of these vulgar posts. the blogroll should be about iraqis and their views. emigre is just some australian chick, not an iraqi, and nobody cares about her views or her sexual acts. i have a view in my mind that emigre is quite obese, so i dont want to have a person image of a fat person having anal sex.

8 March: International Womens Day!

My opinion is that Emigre has been acting very well by mentioning the abortion item. 'Fundamental women's right are more essential for (global) society than most men do realize. And how strange that only men's names (i don't think these are nicks' of women) pop up as commentors on this subject. Me, being Dutch and female, i do have certain fundamental rights, and abortion is one of these. I am glad with that. Women struggled and struggle for that. And you know what? Abortion doesn't make child birth impossible!
And you know something else? I totally understand that emigre flipped out over the insensitive comments she got on this. So, Emigre, my suggestion is to concentrate on what women in Iraq organize for the 8th of March.
My best wishes to all of you,
cecile

wow, this has certainly been an entertaining thread. people make one negative comment about abortion and emigre goes insane. what exactly does her having 3 somes and anal sex with khalid, his mother, john kerry, and michael moore have to do with her position on abortion? im glad you have taken a new and improved stance on the US however

‘John’ ‘Tom’ --

Man, it sure is tough on you two literary giants to have to put up with Emigre ‘s writing. I find it truly disgusting that you are forced to read this twaddle at gunpoint. Alas, this drivel may even go so far as to affect your minds, so that you learn how to use proper punctuation, grammar and how to structure an argument. That would truly be a sad day for humanity.

‘anonymous’ --

I don’t have a problem with other countries such as China and Australia et al nearly as much, because they don’t have an attitude of trying to impose their own values on the rest of the world while simultaneously rejecting the decisions of everyone else. As per this abortion fracas.

[anon] “i agree with the other post....you are probably anti-death penalty, but 100% pro abortion.”

Alas, I’m pro-death. Your one size-fits-all box leaks, buddy.

And, given that you think Kyoto is an ‘idiotic idea’, I have to say that your brain leaks as well.

ok bruno,whatever. i guess we can add you to the list of people that have had anal sex with emigre recently.

well someone is obviously pissed. is there an arabic word for "PMS"?

 
#3/03/2005 04:06:00 pm Assalam Aleikom Blogger cile

I don't know what paper this is, (is it the place where *The Ruttles* came from? :) but the article explains some more on the original subject and why fair reason exists to feel irritation.

0023,

That comment was not a sarcastic rejoinder from our host, but a pretend-confession from look-alike "emigre_" who has also been enlivening this page.

 
#3/03/2005 04:34:00 pm Assalam Aleikom Blogger richsanter

cile, all this article does is repeat abortions and abortion-related complaints over and over and make it seem like he has violated womens rights like 800 times. and im disturbed how some people continue to see abortion as only a womens issue. shouldnt the man that got the girl pregnant have a say at all? how fair is it for a woman to abort a child without telling her bf/husband she is even pregnant? these are serious issues that nobody has addressed in this thread.

 
#3/03/2005 04:58:00 pm Assalam Aleikom Anonymous Anonymous

does this mean you aren't a whore and didnt have sex with khalid, his mother, john kerry, and michael moore? does it mean that bruno's penis is still too small to satisfy you? im confused.

 
#3/03/2005 05:08:00 pm Assalam Aleikom Blogger cile

richsanter: take a clear and real look around and you will understand that women's right to decide must certainly prevale here. it are serious issues, yes, but let's take these up when women's rights equals men's rights. and in the meantime: use condoms ;)

Social values, Do the Taliban have any?

Or if not Taliban, who thinks like this?

 
#3/04/2005 06:18:00 pm Assalam Aleikom Blogger emigre

This is the real emigre speaking. She is almost amused by identity theft. Not.

I am flattered that someone might want to be me - on the other hand, get over it.

 
#3/04/2005 06:37:00 pm Assalam Aleikom Blogger emigre

Btw - some readers may experience continuity difficulties on this thread.

This is because a handfull of posts by an imposter have been "cleaned".

You think what remains is bad? You should have seen it before.

 
#3/04/2005 09:08:00 pm Assalam Aleikom Anonymous Anonymous

i'm still confused. does this mean that emigre did or did not have anal sex with bruno and a 3 some with khalid and his mother? can someone fill me in?

 
#3/05/2005 07:39:00 am Assalam Aleikom Blogger emigre

Grow up, richsanter. Choosing an identity of your own is not hard.

 
#3/06/2005 03:24:00 pm Assalam Aleikom Blogger emigre

Please send all of your pornographic pictures to emigreimagine@yahoo.com.au and also put my address into any of those porno pages that will send free picture in my email. Thanks!

 
#3/07/2005 02:01:00 am Assalam Aleikom Blogger emigre

Feeble richsanter. Do you really think anyone is going to take those "impersonations" seriously?

Just what exactly is your point? That you are able to create false identities and fake user profiles?

You remind me of the kid at the back of the class who says "I'm teacher" and then makes squelchy noises with his armpits.

Peter Pan never got to never-land by spitting at the tooth fairy.

Grow up.
