I forgot yesterday that I had a bunch of French links I wanted to share!

First the website Vie de meuf; reading it is a great, unwelcome reminder of the kind of sexist crap that women still have to hear every day. A recent post about porn made me think that I would disagree on some things with the feminists who maintain the website, but it's a pretty cool resource regardless.

Second, I wanted to share a bunch of links on the recent changes made to the biology curriculum in France; it now vaguely integrates questions of sexual diversity. And it's been causing outrage amongst our conversative morally-righteous Christian right.
- L'homosexualité enseignée à l'école : une pilule qui passe mal
- Identité sexuelle: Copé soutient les 80 députés UMP
- Manuels scolaires : le mauvais procès des bon chic bon genre
There's repetitions over the three articles, but I wanted to link them all for my own reference. As a sidenote, one of the things that annoy me the most about these articles and this whole fake controversy is that people keep saying that the new textbooks were influenced by gender theory; even if it was true, it's been watered down to the point where it's not only almost impossible to recognize the influence of gender theory, but where gender theory would actually have TONS of issues with the way things are being formulated in the textbooks. But whatever.

Also I forgot yesterday this really interesting article on the sexualization of Casey Anthony, written by one of the bloggers from Tiger Beatdown. "Casey Anthony may have killed her daughter, Casey Anthony made out with a girl at a party–there is no connection between the two ideas. Unless, that is, you buy the idea that being sexual — impermissibly, 'shocking'-ly sexual! In public! With a girl, even! — makes you a monster. Or the idea that, for a woman, enjoying sex is a moral offense that can be fitted onto the same scale of human evil as murdering a toddler. If you buy that, the connection is perfectly clear."

Have you read the following quote on the Observatoire Des Transidentités' facebook page? 'Lionnel Luca, député UMP : "La théorie du genre est bien connue aux États-Unis, elle sert surtout d'alibi là-bas à justifier la pédophilie"' /headdesk

Je n'avais pas vu ça, mais c'est remarquable de connerie quand même, ça mériterait presque un prix. Je voudrais bien comprendre comment il a même réussi à s'inventer ce truc là??

J'en avais parlé sur facebook avec une amie, ce qui me marque c'est cette citations de la lettre des députés :
«Selon cette théorie, les personnes ne sont plus définies comme hommes et femmes, mais comme pratiquants de certaines formes de sexualité : homosexuels, hétérosexuels, bisexuels, transsexuels»
Ce qui prouve deux choses :
- 80 députés ne sont pas fichus de lire une page d'un manuel de lycée
- Par contre ils montrent parfaitement pourquoi les gens ont besoin d'être éduqué sur le sujet.

et 3) ils n'ont jamais lu quoi que ce soit sur la (les!) théorie du genre...

C'est grave quand même, de s'opposer aussi radicalement à un truc qu'on a pas pris le temps de comprendre. Et là je parle plutôt des manuels parce que bon, on est tellement loin d'une réflexion sur le genre qu'on ne va même pas commencer à parler de ça. >.>
