A jihad Vladimir Putin can finally agree with

I blogged the other day about a jihad we can all agree with…well it looks like Vladimir Putin also agrees:

The Russian president was confronted by a topless protester with an obscene slogan insulting Mr Putin painted on her back – and, he admitted, he ?liked? it.

Mr Putin was with German Chancellor Angela Merkel at at a trade fair in Hanover when the woman tried to push her way through to an amused-looking Mr Putin, but was blocked by aides. Her back was painted with an obscene slogan in Cyrillic script directed against the Russian president.

The activist was with two other women who also stripped to the waist and shouted slogans calling the Russian leader a ?dictator?.? Read more »

Jihad we can all believe in

This is the kind of jihad I can believe in:

[M]embers of Ukrainian feminist group Femen staged protests across Europe as they called for a “topless jihad.” The demonstrations were in support of a young Tunisian activist named Amina Tyler. Last month, Tyler posted naked images of herself online, with the words “I own my body; it’s not the source of anyone’s honor” written on her bare chest. The head of Tunisia’s “Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice,” reportedly called for Tyler to be stoned to death for her putatively obscene actions, lest they lead to an epidemic. Tyler has since gone quiet, leading some to fear for her safety.

Below are some images from Femen’s protests in Sweden, Italy, Ukraine, Belgium, and France. A warning, nearly every photo depicts nudity, and most contain offensive language. I did warn you so don’t go moaning in the comments about it.? Read more »

Public Safety Message – Chainsaws

Recently in Russia a group of feminists took to a wooden cross with a chainsaw….in support of Pussy Riot.

A CHAINSAW-WIELDING blonde topless woman cutting down a cross in a city centre sounds like a scene from a peculiar pornographic film. But that is just what?happenedon August 17 in the Ukrainian capital Kiev (Kyiv in its vernacular transliteration). A NSFW (not safe for work) clip of the stunt is available?here.

The woman, identified as Inna Shevchenko, was a member of FEMEN, a Ukrainian feminist group known for its topless protests. The action was supposed to show?solidarity with the three women from?Pussy Riot, a punk collective in Russia, who were sentenced that day, as well as a protest against religious prejudice against women.

I watched the video. In the interests of training and science it would be remiss of me not to post the video. Please comment on chainsawing technique and the safety aspects that are displayed and possible improvements:
