Riot, that is. Get your minds out of the gutter, the weekend’s barely started!
Today the Huffington Post published an article where Putin was quoted as saying that the female members of Russian punk bank Pussy Riot deserved harsh jail sentences because they “violated the moral foundations of Russia.”
A couple months ago, three female band members were arrested because the lyrics of one of their songs were highly critical of President Putin. One of the members was released on a suspended sentence; the remaining two will be serving two year terms.
Some think that this will hurt Russia’s efforts to expand its global influence, with critics saying there have been increased efforts to silence dissent in the nation.
Some people I’ve spoken to about this think that Putin is making himself look bad. By incarcerating three young women for some song lyrics, it’s made him look paranoid. Others have wondered if this would have happened if the band members were men. Maybe, maybe not……
Even worse, imprisoning singers who express their political views, whether they’re men or women, goes against the democratic ideal of freedom of expression. If you can’t openly express your views without the fear of being imprisoned, you are not truly free. Unfortunately, it seems like this harsh move on Putin’s part will have many people concerned about the values Russia will promote as it tries to extend its influence around the world.
To get a better idea of what he thinks, take a look at the link below.

A sexy bitch is coming our way!
Psychology Today published a very interesting article titled, “Why do Women Hate and Fear Sexy Women?” The gist – women with a stronger sex drive often have few female friends, and find that women tend to keep their distance from them. Such women also report that they feel men are much less judgmental of their sexual urges.
Apparently, generations of manipulati….I mean, for generations, women have been expected to repress their sexual urges. It isn’t ladylike, after all! But why not?
Theories abound. The article mentions that just seeing a woman who is not afraid to flaunt her sexuality can trigger intense inner conflicts in the straight laced types. They wonder what they’re missing out on, yet can’t bring themselves to break out of the Good Girl role.
Competition for men is also a problem. The article goes on to state that for thousands of years, all women have had to offer men is their reproductive capacity and physical attributes, in exchange for getting a man to settle down with and provide for them. That’s where the sexy ladies cause a problem – if the men get the milk for free and don’t have to buy the cow, it’ll be more difficult to find a man willing to settle down.
I think it goes without saying that women are depicted in a much more sexual way than ever before. The amount of porn available on the Internet alone is one example. And look at how many TV shows have aggressive, sexual women fighting over guys, or getting drunk and falling flat on their faces. Some people think this is progress, and liberates women from sexual and societal repression that has been holding us back for years.
I’m not sure how I feel about this. I’ve gotten the sense that the vast majority of men aren’t interested in settling down with a woman who comes off as aggressively sexual. It seems like they’ll sleep with her a few times, or begin that magical “Friends with benefits” relationship with a woman like that. However, when it comes to settling down, the straight laced types seem to win out. Maybe I’m wrong.
Not that it’s all about getting a guy. But it’s hard to ignore the way that so many societies around the world look down on overt female sexuality.
The question in my mind is whether this is something that’s dictated by society, biology, both, or something else entirely.
Whatever the reason, you won’t see me naked on the Internet anytime soon!
