In honor of our North American membership, happy harvest festival! (Thanksgiving!) Lets pause to thank SL, each other, and all residents for bringing us closer., making new memories and offering wonderful experiences. And don't forget, in Japan: Labor Thanksgiving Day is the following day, so give thanks worldwide!
Yes, its not unusual to complain abt things, about Second Life, for example. It's not unusual to overlook the joy and wonder around us. Let's remember the good work and passion that so many contribute to the experience everyday. People are just human, humans just people, after all. It is amazing that they rise above shortcomings and bring magic into the world. Despite the pitfalls and blunders that comprise humanity daily, the Goddess of Creation smiles upon us all.
Enjoy life and thank those around you for being such an important part of it!
Whether you enjoy playing with men or not, one of the best parts about Future Femdom is the chance to 'get away' from it all and relax. To me, a big part of 'femdom' is that we can enjoy life without the archaic manipulations of the patriarchy. We can ignore men if we want, and toss them aside as the casual playthings they were created to be. We can use them if desired, but they are not ever the focus.
This is why we have meditation and relaxation areas at Future Femdom, and many things to do aside form slave-play. Yes, I know that, in Second Life, residents often are sex-obsessed. And also very bdsm-obsessed. You just can't avoid that! Escape is a big aspect of SL, after all.
Escape is the main reason we provide as much 'get-away' space as possible.
Future Femdom may have a lot of fun ways to play with slaves, of course...that's part of the mission.......but we are really a New Wave Feminist Matriarchy......so awareness, inspiration and education are out focus. Come here to breathe free, away from the restraints and absurd expectations, discriminations, prejudices and biases of the patriarchal-influenced mainstream. Relax here and enjoy the simple truth that WE are becoming the mainstream, more and more every day.
Virtual worlds like Second Life can lead the way, showing the trending of the future as it lives and breathes. Future Femdom is your place to experience the inner truths that are even now, rising to the surface of reality. Come and relax with us!
I know this isnt really worth a blog post. After all, since when do stupid men get internet real estate on a busy blog? Well, I think these tiny items have some comedy value.....plus it indicates exactly how regressive SL can be sometimes....PLUS it seems to be a blogger tradition to paste chat logs on rare occasion.....
So Zara seemed to be AFK with a man named bulldog standing next to her.......
[11:46] Ginette Pinazzo: welcome to FF bulldog....the 3 basic rules are in the spinning cubes above (required)
[11:46] Ginette Pinazzo: Hi Zara
[11:47] BulldogBabel: Hi [11:47] BulldogBabel: sorry Zara is afk at the moment
[11:48] Ginette Pinazzo: ok...well you can read and follow the basic rules, then...since youre not afk.....just touch the cubes [11:48] BulldogBabel: I did thanks
[11:50] Ginette Pinazzo: by follow I mean follow, of course
[11:50] BulldogBabel: I read, I have no intention of following them, when Zara is back we'll be leaving you in peace :)
[11:50] Ginette Pinazzo: then leave now [11:51] BulldogBabel: read above she's afk [11:51] Ginette Pinazzo: Ill tell Zara that you left [11:51] BulldogBabel: eject me if you're that small minded, I'll wait with her otherwise thanks
(ejected and banned) Note: that photo attached is not of the pointless bulldog, but I thought it fit well
Purpose of the Hub:
To gather resources in one central location to create a transformative experience that helps promote a more female-friendly virtual world environment. Despite virtual worlds 'leading the way' in many areas, they still often perpetuate sexist and often misogynist trends. Within Second Life, for example, misogynist cults and rape culture are rampant. These destructive and barbaric tendencies are not even buried, but are very close to the surface. It is possible to find 'gorean' content (a thinly disguised misogynist cult) marketed on the homepage when residents first enter SL. Issues like this can easily be addressed with a campaign of awareness and education. (many Gorean followers, for example, may not even realize the content they condone is based on rape and kidnapping)
The Matriarchy Hub/Womens Resource Center seeks to be an early step in the long process of awareness and education to alter the culture of Second Life to become more in-synch with changing demographics, to reflect and address the new cultures of Empowerment, women-as-leaders, Women as the key resident market.
