Er, you mean "Fascist". "Marxist" would be where they don't get paid for it.

Years ago, she was hailed as an icon. She was a nice lady in real life too, from all accounts(saw some documentary on her years ago) and owned her status, even when she turned born-again.

This isn't feminism...

Oh barf...

Unlike social justice warrior, the word feminist can actually have a useful meaning. It also has a disruptive meaning - a member of the cabal of witches with razor-sharp fingernails out to devour mankind. Further, what I mean when I say I'm a feminist is different from what the woman who owns the mural means when she calls herself a feminist, which is different from what the vandals mean by claiming to be "some feminists", which is different from what the commenters here are referring to as a feminist. I can't help but think that this story is getting airtime to bolster the disruptive meaning. For in no sense does it implicate feminism as a whole.

Of course, BlueOni is right: what do you mean when you say this behavior is Marxist, KarenAraragi?

Thats the ironic thing about modern day feminists.

Destroying statues of past Tsars also has nothing to contribute to Marxist ideas but they did it anyways just to show they are changing stuff. These people don't use logic and applying logic to them does not work.


In that particular case the thing to be destroyed would be a monument to the bourgeois class, though. It's a bit like saying it would be irrational, illogical, and completely unrelated to American revolutionaries' cause to tear down monuments to the British monarchy.


We threw their tea in the sea and defaced a few statues to show defiance and give them the middle finger but we didn't really destroy much.

And in the War of 1812 the US burned down parliamentary buildings in Upper Canada. A man's wig was stolen.

Hey that was one awesome wig. Some people would have traded their first born sons for that wig.

Some say the powder thereupon was made from the ground bones of the world's last unicorn, they do.

Nonsense. The world's last unicorns are in North Korea.

Ravenna homeowners have message for 'feminists' who defaced their pinup mural
SEATTLE. -- "Some Feminists" defaced a local mural of pinup icon Bettie Page and now the owners of that mural have a message for the people who did the damage.

If you commute along I-5, there's no missing the Queen of Pinups strategically painted on the side of this house in the Ravenna neighborhood. Jessica Baxter and her husband own the Bettie Page House. The mural was a 30th birthday gift from a friend to her husband. It's been a bit of a Seattle fixture for 10 years, and now, a decade later, someone has a problem with it.

"They were so wrong. I feel passionately they were so wrong, not only in what they did, but the meaning behind it," said Baxter.

Vandals splashed buckets of gray paint all over Page's stockings and as far up as they could reach. They also scribbled a message on the siding that reads, "Stop exploiting women's bodies," and it was signed by "some feminists."

Baxter explained if the group wanted to discuss changes to the mural, they would be open to that, but says this response was not the right way to go about creating change.

"It made me feel very sad and disheartened, because I consider myself a feminist," said Baxter.

Baxter and her husband have tried scraping the paint off, but so far nothing works. So for now, Baxter did the only thing she could and covered the vandals words with her own by writing "Autonomous sexuality is empowerment, telling a woman to cover up is oppression."

She thinks the only fix will be to strip the siding of the house, but she insists that the Queen of Pinups will reign again.

"Don't deface people's houses, that's super lame. If you don't agree, that's fine, take it to the internet like a normal person. Don't deface someone's house. People live here."
