Australia: Criminalise ‘Image-Based Sexual Assault’

contemporary women

Australia needs to criminalise ‘image-based sexual assault’. This includes:

  • revenge porn – the non-consensual sharing of intimate images;
  • morphed porn – the non-consensual doctoring of ordinary images into pornographic material; and
  • parasite porn – the non-consensual sharing of ordinary images onto pornographic websites.

Online sexual exploitation can happen to anyone but it primarily affects women. It is used as a tool by perpetrators to harm, intimidate, control, threaten, misrepresent or sexually objectify their victims. Technology-facilitated abuse can cause significant harm to victims including emotional distress, violation, shame, humiliation, damage to their reputation and employability and disruption to their employment or education. Victims can fear for their safety and have suicidal thoughts and/or attempt suicide.

A national inquiry on ‘revenge porn’ has already taken place, and in early 2016 the Senate Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee recommended in a report that the Commonwealth Government and the states/territories make the ‘non-consensual sharing of intimate images’…

You Could Get a Reblog If You Leave a Link!

Dream Big, Dream Often

images-16Here’s the idea:

I am going to recycle this post from day-to-day and allow readers to leave links to their post in the comments. I’ll be using this in 2 ways: 1. create link share posts, and 2. each day I’ll randomly pick one blog and reblog it to my readers.

Here are the basic rules:

  1. Leave a link in the comments
  2. The time stamp on the comment MUST be for that day. So you have to leave a comment each day!
  3. It’s that easy!

I’ll pick each day based on the time stamp with the daily winner reblogged the following day. Be sure to check back and leave a link daily!

Good luck!

***Please no sexual content, profane language or graphic content.

“Greek Myths and Graffiti Murals”: “Collaboration With Resa McConaghy”:

_____________________________________________________________________________________

⇒About This Post. Abstract:

The following article is composed of two sections, each one of them including murals from Argentina and Canada, respectively. This post aims to analyze with a with a free, but still judiciously, well-founded criteria how certain mythological greek themes and characters might be recurrent, despite time and even against it.

As Resa and I found some graffitis which seemed to have mythological and even philosophical equivalents we decided we wanted to try to show those connections. Resa´s mural is from the University of Toronto (Toronto, Canada) whilst mine are from The Planetarium (Palermo, Buenos Aires, Argentina). With that being said, we just wanted to say that, after finding many similarities, we are quite pleased with the outcome. Both of, Resa and I believe the convergences are striking. And being so, they broaden and deepen the…

An Irish Airman Foresees His Death

LazyHaze

aircraft-1813731_1921

I know that I shall meet my fate,
Somewhere among the clouds above;
Those that I fight I do not hate,
Those that I guard I do not love;
My country is Kiltartan Cross,
My countrymen Kiltartan’s poor,
No likely end could bring them loss
Or leave them happier than before.
Nor law, nor duty bade me fight,
Nor public men, nor cheering crowds,
A lonely impulse of delight
Drove to this tumult in the clouds;
I balanced all, brought all to mind,
The years to come seemed waste of breath,
A waste of breath the years behind
In balance with this life, this death.


This a poem by William Butler Yeats, a great poet and Irish nationalist. The sentiment expressed here is stark, yet hauntingly elegant. The moment before his death seems to have accorded the Airman such startling clarity, that he met his end with complete equanimity.
