Postby demonista » Thu Jul 01, 2010 10:07 am

a male officer also threatened a queer male friend of mine with rape.

i was only patted down, not strip searched, but still felt violated (it included feeling my vulva and breasts). there has been reports of women searched, including strip searched, by men.

edit: here's a vid of miller discussing what happened: http://vimeo.com/ 12925239
"The mass term meat accomplishes something besides euphemizing the process of destruction that enables corpse consumption...Those most oppressed because of race, sex, and class are those who become the mediators, the transformers of animals into food. Here we can see the interlocking system of domination at work, as it intersects sex, class, race, and species oppression." - Carol Adams

"That strutting cock-of-the-walk: is he the pimp or the john? Judging by the hearts fluttering above the hen's head, he's no john. Prostifowl have been known to develop unhealthy fixations on their pimps, fixations born of fear, desperation, and subterranean self-esteem.
"So the Yard Pimps identify with the rooster who services the chickens in his brood, thereby creating more chickens to subject to the ol' barbecue treatment. It's a ruthlessly efficient system." - Suicide Food (suicidefood.blogspot.com/2008/12/yard-pimps-bbq.html)

"Meat is like pornography: before it was someone's fun, it was someone's life." - Melinda Vadas

"As we talked of freedom and justice one day for all, we sat down to steaks. I am eating misery, I thought, as I took the first bite. And spit it out." - Alice Walker
