"You see I was born back in the so-called free days of the sixties, in the front bedroom of a working class house back in Dublin. My mother's water's broke, a girl was born but a boy was celebrated. A two second glance. A decision made condemning me to a life rejection, loneliness, misunderstanding, bias, loss and rape. I don't mean rape in the sexual sense but in the sense of being forced to live a lie. That is a rape of my soul, the real me." - Talk given this evenng by Lynda Sheridan at LGBT Carol Service in the Unitarian Church read full story / add a comment

Monica Roa from Women's Link Worldwide addressed the Safe and Legal Forum In Dublin last evening, as part of a week of Prochoice events organised by IFPA and safe and Legal. She made Legal History in Columbia by challenging the abortion laws as a human rights issue. The campaign by Women's Link Worldwide was called the Laicia Campaign.

And the talk was very interesting. Monica showed a film of the campaign from start to finish, including the agit-prop, media coverage and the day of the Judgement. The documentary was short and in Spainish with acompanying English Subtitles. read full story / add a comment

A Gay Pride demo will be held in Jerusalem, on 10 November, against a background of vicious incitement and homophobic propaganda by reactionary Jewish and Arab organisations. This follows a similar campaign running up to the June 2005 Gay Pride demo, which lead to the stabbing of three demonstrators by an ultra right-wing settler (who was sentenced to 12 years in prison). These groups are attempting to whip up hatred and intimidation in to prevent people from attending the demonstration. read full story / add a comment

Silvia Federici’s “Caliban and the Witch; Women, The Body and Primitive Accumulation” does a fantastic job of taking the feminist analysis of the body and re-conceptualizing it within a class struggle understanding of history. She fills in the blanks that a traditional left analysis has missed, including the concepts of difference, women, race and the body. This work is very important, allowing feminists and socialists alike to realize that identity and class struggle are not polar opposite theoretical understandings read full story / add a comment

Mr Justice Dermot Kinlen is not only a judger but also our splendid Irish republic's Inspector of Prisons.
He is thus one of the few chaps who not only bangs people up but goes & has a look at them later. A pillar of the establishment.

For those in the loop of Irish civil, human & other rights this last year, the recommendation by Dermot Kinlen to allow inmates in Ireland's penal community conjugal visits & rights was seen as sort of a promising thing read full story / add a comment

Professional sexual services for the disabled are well established in several EU states including Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark & Sweden. Their development as part of a long-term full recovery strategy & therapy for adults who had lost mobility due to accidents soon expanded to addressing questions of "how do parents of disabled children be that disability mental or physical facilitate full sexual development & maturity?"
The UK first saw co-habitation of young adults with Downes Syndrome with minimal input by either parents or social services in the early 90's. And now the Swiss group "FABS" has started the ball rolling in the Alpine country to provide a "full service" which goes beyond "erotic touching" to full sexual intercourse. read full story / add a comment

The case of Hina Salem whose mutilated body has been recovered from her parents' back garden in Italy reminds us that honour killing is still prevalent in Europe. Just as self-immolation is not a Buddhist tendancy, honour killing has no direct connection to religion. On the contrary such types of murder reflect patriarchial belief systems. The Killers are more often than not fathers or brothers who can not accept life decisions made by their sisters or daughters & thus kill their family members to preserve "honour". Hina was 20 years of age, her body was placed with head facing Mecca after her father and other male family members punished her for co-habitating with her 32 year old boyfriend. Their trial in Brescia near Milan in Italy raises inter-community tensions being pitched not surprisingly as an "Islamic fundementalist" question, considering her father of Pakistani origin came to live in europe in 1996. read full story / add a comment

How different are men and women? Very, according to some. John Gray’s book “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” is based on the idea that there are fundamental differences between the genders. It may be just another self-help book on relationships, but it has also sold over 30 million copies and been translated into 40 languages. read full story / add a comment

In 2005 two Iranian teenagers, Mahmoud Asgari (16) and Ayaz Marhoni (18), were both sentenced to death for what some human rights groups claimed was "consensual gay sex". Today, on the first anniversary of the executions a protest meeting was held outside the Central Bank in Dame to commemorate the event. read full story / add a comment

Madame K on Pride'06: "Despite the rain nothing could dampen the spirits of the 2,000 or so who took part. The diverse group was well catered for, with the event concluding in a free party held on public space. Wheelchair access, kids area and signed language to facilitate a true sense of inclusiveness for all that gathered for the after party. A much smaller event than many counterparts held over seas Dublin Pride has not yet become the commercial entity that has caused untold problems abroad, let`s hope it stays that way". read full story / add a comment
