[ mood | annoyed ]

Hello ladies,
     I'm new to this and I can't sleep tonight so I wanted to post some feelings. I have a love (actually like)  hate relationship with my chest size.Some times I'm okay with it and pretty happy that they're big but most of the time its pure frustration with their size.Nothing fits in the chest area and I can't wear a low tops without looking a whore. I feel like every option I have makes me look much older I'm 28 and I don't feel old at all. I feel like I'm always complaining and about it but reduction is not an option. How can I deal with this better?anyone have similar body issues like this?

Red Doors [13 Jul 2006|11:24am]

Red Doors tells the story of the Wongs, a bizarrely dysfunctional Chinese-American family living in the New York suburbs. Ed Wong (Tzi Ma) has just retired and plots to escape his mundane life. However, the tumultuous, madcap lives of his three rebellious daughters change his plans.

Samantha (Jacqueline Kim), the eldest daughter, is a tough New York businesswoman engaged to a prominent young man (Jayce Bartok). Festering beneath her controlled surface, however, is a deep-rooted resentment for being pushed onto the straight and narrow path. As she nears her thirtieth birthday, Samantha begins to reevaluate her career and love life. When she runs into an old high school flame (Rossif Sutherland) during a visit to her hometown, Samantha is thrust into a soul-searching journey that compels her to reexamine how she has lived her life until now.

Julie (Elaine Kao), the shy middle sister, is a fourth-year medical student whose only social outlet is her weekly ballroom dance class. Julie has always been the quiet center of the Wong family storm. However, Julie’s world is turned upside down when she meets Mia Scarlett (Mia Riverton), a movie star researching her next role at the hospital, who sets Julie’s heart aflame. While Julie grapples with the difficulties of dating a celebrity, she also tries to keep her own family from falling apart.

Katie (Kathy Shao-Lin Lee), the youngest sister, is a disaffected high school senior who engages in an elaborate prank war with Simon (Sebastian Stan), her longtime neighbor and nemesis. While the pranks start out innocuously, the incidents rapidly escalate to dangerous proportions until the two finally discover their own peculiar brand of emotional connection.

Before Ed disappears, he decides to re-visit his history through old VHS footage of the Wong family (the director’s own home video footage). The stark contrast between the happier past and the colder reality of the present compel Ed to leave home. Yet, while the Wongs may no longer be able to verbally express their feelings, Ed and the daughters learn to communicate again through the stories and images from the past.

Lately I've been getting really happy when I get my period. I feel a real sense of pride and I feel really happy to be a woman, despite the awful cramps and pain in my ovaries. Does anybody else here feel that way?
post comment

um, question! [25 Jun 2005|12:48pm]

I havent had my period for over 12 months...I have occasional cramps, and discharge..I'm just kind of scarred. Any ideas? I'm also 16, so It should be getting somewhat normal, right?

happy internatoinal womyn's day.

in my sociology class im making a cd of all songs about womyn. i would really appreciate it if anyone can recommend some songs. they can be about anything dealing with womyn: empowerment, pride, rape, sexuality- it just has to be tasteful and with a message.

thank you in advance. peace and love, danielle.

art project [01 Nov 2004|12:13pm]


hello everyone. i am writing to describe an art project i am just starting, and also ask for some help. i have for a long time wanted to begin some sort of rape project that could hopefully touch a broader audience about the subject and also raise awareness. i am a photography major but i work with mixed media, as well.

the basic layout at this stage is to have a polaroid with a small, square piece of text typed out on white paper underneath. the text, for example, would say something like this:

'she was being cared for in a russian orphanage. sometime between the ages of one and three she was sexually abused. consequently, she acts out violently and has uncontrollable rage. she was prescribed zoloft at the age of seven.'

the design of the project will change with time. my initial skteches have been to place the polaroids onto a piece of painted matboard and attach the text directly underneath.

the problem is that i would like for this to become a huge, ongoing project. i am beginning by using people i know who have experienced rape or sexual abuse, but there are many more whom i don't know personally. this is where you can help. would you be willing to share a small portion of your story and a polaroid of yourself? it can be annonymously donated to the project, if that would make anyone more comfortable. but i would like to collect as many of these as humanly possible and, once it is all gathered, create a unique and artistic way to help people in the world WAKE UP about this problem.

if you or anyone you know would be interested, please please please email me at: kristina@revolutionphotos.com

thank you!!

**it doesn't have to be rape. it could be anything that involves feeling afraid sexually, because no matter what it's still damaging. also, please link this to your journal if you think that would help to spread the word.

A First [19 Sep 2004|08:00pm]

hi everyone,

well this something I'd never thought I would be doing..talking about my body. Up until the end of last year.. I have never been comfortable with being naked..not even when it is just me and the mirror. But now I am so comfortable and relaxed. To me, being naked with someone you love is such a special thing..not to mention with yourself;) With previous girlfriends..I have never been able to feel fully free and comfortable. But it is my deep love for Z and how she has treated me, which has changed all that..it is such a wonderful feeling that I shall cherish always.

As a woman I have such respect for other women and how they are treated and how their bodies are talked about. The other day when traveling home on the train three executives came and sat next to me. At first the conversation was the average daily blah..then it turned being explicit and vulgar. Describing about their girlfriends breasts and how the vagina is more pleasurable when sowed up a notch. god I felt sick..that I moved...but afterward I felt bad..as I felt that I should have said something more than a moody 'excuse me'. I am now thinking of ways that I can channel my anger and reaction if this situation should occur again.

help! [15 Aug 2004|02:26am]

i need help;

is tampon good for the vagina especially when heavy & light leakage?
i feel weird wearing tampon. it's like as though i have a penis up in my poor bleeding vagina.
it's feels fine when i stand up and walk around but it feels terribly funny when i sit down.

but having to use sanitary pad would make my vagina have this weird looking rashes and it's irritating too. and clothpad is extremely expensive since i always get it online (i stay in a pathetic country called Singapore). and i am too tired to do my own clothpad and have to wash it is definitely a hardwork. can someone PLEASE help me? i am torn between work and my own body pride.

HI everyone! [09 Jul 2004|03:30pm]
I am new to Live Journal and wanted to find some communities and friends here! I live in a huge city but don't have many people to talk to when I'm home with my beautiful daughter all day!

I just wanted to say HI and say that this looks like a cool community. I joined because when I looked up vagina monalogues this one came up!

Nice to meet you all!

I'm a student and I'm working at J.Crew. When I'm not in school or working, I really just love to kick back. For me, kicking back might be doing some Yoga, hanging with friends, snuggling on the couch, watching movies, sleeping in late, and I love to travel. I love to party, drink! (and that's not Diet Coke, even though I love it), go clubbing, dance, visit art museums, and I enjoy playing the piano. I'm far from your average girl. Even though I work at J.Crew, I am very low maintence. If I'm not working, it's all about cute t-shirts and jeans.

breast cancer has been a battle many fight every year. it effects women AND men, no one is invincible. because of this, i chose to create this post!

on september 10-12th i'm participating in a 60km walk to fight breast cancer. that's 38 miles! i'm doing this for every person out there, because not ONE of us is invincible to this disease. now, i need everyones help.

i need to fundraise donations. these donations go to research for breast cancer, which will aide in finding a cure! the donations are taken by the princess margaret hospital which is located in toronto. it's a leading hospital for cancer research.

i really don't like to ask for money, and i feel horrible doing this so impersonally, but this is such an important topic.

you can donate here: http://on.endcancer.ca/site/TR?pg=personal&fr_id=1000&px=1027393 as much or as little as you like! you can donate online, or print out a donation form. if you don't have a printer, i will mail you a form!

please give thought into this. i'm walking quite a ways and doing extreme training for this. help me help our hospitals fight breast cancer!

just to let everyone know, i work as a waitress and i promise to donate 10% of my tips to this walk! we're all in this together :)

calling all idea people [10 Feb 2004|01:39pm]

Hello everyone, my name is Maureen and I am new to the community, I stumbled upon this community through a google search for VAGINA PRIDE. I was searching for this because i am conducting a workshop called DEMYSTIFYING YOUR VAGINA as part of an internship that i am doing! I am very excited, but i am kinda running low on ideas! So far, the only ideas we have deal with discussions, art activities, and some things like that, but i would like to open it to your suggestions..

if you were going to a workshop like this, what would you want out of it? what activites would be cool, questions to pose the group for discussion, any resoures you can direct me to would be fantastic! Thank you ladies!
