Hearts and flowers and… um… whipping

// 14 February 2008

A collection of Valentine-themed posts:

  • Uplift! Magazine reminds us it’s actually vagina day, as well as Valentine’s Day
  • Twisty at I Blame the Patriarchy is back with a post that skewers Valentine’s Day
  • Shakesville on an ad which shows men using Valentine’s Day themed jewels to hypnotise women
  • Feministing on how much anti-feminists hate vaginas
  • Valentine’s day is based on ancient pagan ritual of priests whipping young girls to make them fertile and distributing them to local men in ancient version of a key party – Goddess Gift
  • And Texas has struck down a ban on sex toys! Or, as Pandagon puts it “It’s finally legal to be a masturbating female in Texas. Praise the lord and pass the AA batteries.”
