The man, the ball and the woman. A Tale Of Two footballers.

I am going to keep this simple. I think a lot of pictures might be needed. Words aren't a lot of use to my intended audience.

Dear Football Justice Warriors,

Here is picture 1 of a rapist.....

Here is picture 2 of a woman saying "no"......

Here is picture 3 of a football....

The rapist in picture 1 can happily kick the ball in picture 3. There are parks all over the place. Or his back garden. The rapist in picture 1 cannot put his penis inside the vagina of the woman in picture 2 if she doesn't say yes or she hasn't the capacity to say yes. He can't do it even if his mate has just put his penis in her a few minutes before. He can't do it if she's drunk. He can't do it if she picks up pizza in a hotel lobby or wears heels reasonably competently. He just can't do it if she doesn't say he can.

Just because the rapist in picture 1 can't kick the ball in picture 3 wherever he likes - my back garden for instance - or through the House of Commons on Wednesday at 12 o'clock - or on the pitch at Bramall lane does not mean his life has ended. It's just a ball. Go back to picture 2. That's a woman. I remind you because you seem to forget about her whilst you are thinking about this....

Let's look at some more pictures....

Here is a footballer.....

Here is a picture of a child.....( I use a cartoon because ----- CHILD)

the footballer in the picture, or any footballer over 18, cannot put his penis in a child because of this...

The footballer in picture one is not allowed to try to encourage the child in the picture to let him put his penis in her because of this.....

I am not saying the footballer in this picture or any other accused footballer is guilty. Meanwhile. The footballer in the picture is allowed to carry on kicking this if he is accused of putting his penis inside a child....

However, take your time with this.... I know it is quite tough..... lots of words coming up.... Imagine if the footballer was told to a wait until a judge and a jury says he definitely did or definitely did not put his penis inside a child..... and that just for a few weeks he could not kick the football on one specific patch of grass for a bit.... it isn't the end of his world. However, the children sat at home who see a man just like their man, the one who hurt them by putting his penis inside them,  being cheered by thousands of other men, they might feel a little bit more like telling someone about their man. They might feel a little bit less scared and their man might get arrested and go here so that he stopped putting his penis inside them.

Here is a picture of me....

Nah - just shittin ya. But really "innocent until proven guilty" is starting to get right on my tits as a tweet to justify your right to see this....

You my little fluffy football lovers don't give a shit about children, or women, or justice. Have a look at yourself in a mirror and be sure you don't really see a "you"-shaped version of this... which you may remember is a rapist.

Have a rape free Saturday lads.

No love,

Jean Hatchet.

Free the men. They are oppressed by bras.

Some teenagers on Saturday night were passing around their phones and making "Wow. She's so brave!" noises about pictures of their friends.

The friends were girls. On Twitter. They were topless. They had exposed their bodies for everyone to see. They were being passed around a room. It could be any room. That picture of them naked can be all over the world really quickly and used in all kinds of ways by all kinds of people (men - you know I mean men). They can never take it back. They have no control over it. They have joined a hashtag craze #FreeTheNipple - that has the word "Empowerment" tagged on by some flimsy explanation but the message is simple. Get your breasts out. Show them to men. It makes you free. It means you are claiming your right as a woman.

Well, I pondered this. I knew something wasn't right. I asked for their explanation. It was quite vague.  "Nipples are censored in some parts of the press and social media and that isn't fair on women who shouldn't be shamed for their bodies. Miley Cyrus is supportive. Instagram are mean and do the same. It's sort of linked to breastfeeding being censored too but we aren't sure how. There are some iffy laws in the US about going topless." A few other things were mentioned. They very much liked the hashtag. It felt quite rebellious and cool to them.

What I saw was young girls being given an incitement to selfie naked. Being urged to do it. Now who would want that to happen?

I went to bed and still wasn't sure. Feminists wanted this apparently and you can't have it both ways. Women should have the right to show their breasts without fear of shame - clear message.

Except I don't think it is clear at all.

The next day I tweeted my doubts. I wasn't fully formed in them, I just smelled patriarchal bullshit and needed to think.

Rather quickly a man popped up. It's like they hide in the bushes watching my fingers reach for the keyboard sometimes they are so fast. It took him just one tweet to tell me I was wrong and hadn't understood properly.

I smiled and popped my phone on the table. Said to my friend "Yup. I was right. Here he is. The man who will spend a lot of time now telling me what feminism is and why I am oppressing women who want to show him their breasts. You watch."

She ignored me and glugged wine. She rarely gets involved - she said "don't you ever stop??"

Answer. No, not really. Once someone or some moment has opened your eyes to male crap, no, you can't stop seeing it. It's like a special sense has been flipped on. It's rubbish at times. It's like you'd love to unsee it all so that you can love the world again. But you can't. You just can't. So you can do 2 things. Get really despondent or fight.

So I gently popped back a comment at the explaining man to ask who the producers of the film were. He shouted at me a bit about the WOMAN behind it. I pointed out that 50% of the producers, i.e - the men with the cash who wanted the film to make more cash - were in fact male. So men needed young women to get on board with a "craze" of baring their bodies for all to see so that they could make more money.

Now this made sense for me. No empowerment. No feminist campaign. No ultimately fighting for a better world where women were proud of their bodies.

Just cash and lust.

Well that wasn't ok with the explaining man. He still had quite a lot of explaining to do. He properly loves the campaign that makes young women show him their naked bodies. He is absolutely sure the "right kind" of feminists agree with him. Not the bad kind. Not the radical kind. Not the kind that would say "Hold on a minute - who is pulling the strings here? Who is stripping these girls?"

Apparently, second wave feminists are annoying. Anyone who wants to look out for the interests of these young girls is oppressing them. Some feminists are just too stupid to grasp the campaign. He tweeted his need to see breasts for more than 24 hours - blocking any feminist who disagreed. He is still at it. You can find him at @Guy4Progress - Freethinker. I'm too young to have been a second waver but I am bloody thankful they did what they did. They show us the way to stop having feminism whipped from under us by dudes like this one.

If we know anything at all it is that you always have to look for the patriarchal puppet master no matter how lovely the entertainment show. If a man comes along to tell us to look the other way whilst he looks at breasts. There is only one thing to tell him back.

Fuck you mister. Fuck you.

So this campaign? It's bullshit. Keep your bras on to spite the men. Take them off when you feel like it and not for a hashtag. Because the men are watching. They all have their dicks in their hands. They all like the show.

That's entertainment.

Lunchtime Porn.

A man sits down to dinner
His hands are washed
He's certain they're clean,
His glass is full
His fire is warm
His working wife asks him
His day has been,
What things he has seen
What happened this morning, at lunch, and in-between.

His head inclined to children
Equally freshly
Ready for food
and family.
He tells them this,
He did his thing,
They give a kiss
His mouth is soft and shaved
and their house is quiet,

Today the man
took laptop
and opened
a woman.
He cut her apart
A tart
He watched her arch her back
Her face towards him
Her lips to start
He thrust into
And hoped she felt the same
way too
as he moved
his cursor silently
over her pain.

Commands unheard
Threats unknown
He cut that woman down to the bone
Of her soul
and came
to know nothing
of Her.

he slammed
the lid sharp
Wiped and swore
A whore

No more
He considers where she is now
As he wipes his lips
And leaves the table
She wipes hers
somewhere less stable.

Men who use porn - use women. No it is not ok to do that. Don't tell me or your wife or your children or lover it's fine to do. We aren't buying it and neither should you.
