(no subject)

x-posted out of debunkingwhite cuz i thought folks here might be interested. i definitely have certain reservations about the vagina monologues, but any opportunity to outwit administrative-type folks in their pursuit of censorship sounds like fun times to me.

Last night I got an email from the Dean of my Lawskool explaining that the Academic Vice President of the University has decreed that I can sell Vagina Monologues tickets on campus provided that:

1. I am DISCREET
2. I do not use any advertising, posters, flyers, tabling or the email system
3. There is no "abortion rights related prozelytizing"
4. NONE of the proceeds go to "abortion rights groups or causes"

Well, seeing as how 10% of every ticket sale goes to CounterCrisis Northwest (in case you are new, thats my start-up abortion fund for women who have experienced rape or domestic violence),

I CAN'T EVEN SELL TICKETS PERSON-TO-PERSON ON SCHOOL PROPERTY.

Yup, that 8-10 cents going to CounterCrisis means I can't ask anyone at school if they wanna buy a ticket.

Not in private conversation
Not in emails
No.

You know what?

They can't stop me from giving them away for free.

If you have a few extra bucks, go to my info page and paypal me $8. For each $8 donation I will walk up to some deserving law student and hand over a free ticket,

RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF GOD, FATHER SPITZER AND EVERYBODY. ON CAMPUS, IN A PRO CHOICE T-SHIRT, EVEN!

I would love it if I could hand out enough to make a ruckus, cuz how are they going to stop that?

If you have it, please paypal me. If you don't send me some love. I am going to need it.

ETA: PLEASE LINK TO ME IN YOUR LJ AND COMMUNITIES!

It will make me cry tears of joy. I cry easily and well when I have not had any sleep because I am so fucking pissed off and raging, so I promise it will be a good, solid cry.

Here is the url for my userinfo page with the paypal button: http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=zorah

I want to make them very, very sorry that their fascist bullshit actually sold far more tickets than if they'd just let me have a damn table and some signs!

Stolen from various blogs...

January 27th is the birthday of Lewis Carrol, author of ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. Alice fell down a rabbit hole into a place where everything had changed and none of the rules could be counted on to apply anymore.

I say, let's do the same: January 27th, 2005 should be the First Annual LiveJournal Rabbit Hole Day. When you post on that Thursday, instead of the normal daily life and work and news and politics, write about the strange new world you have found yourself in for the day, with its strange new life and work and news and politics.

Are your pets talking back at you now? Has your child suddenly grown to full adulthood? Does everyone at work think you're someone else now? Did Bush step down from the White House to become a pro-circuit tap-dancer? Did Zoroastrian missionaries show up on your doorstep with literature in 3-D? Have you been placed under house arrest by bizarre insectoid women wielding clubs made of lunchmeat?

Let's have a day where nobody's life makes sense anymore, where any random LJ you click on will bring you some strange new tale. Let's all fall down the Rabbit Hole for 24 hours and see what's there. It will be beautiful.

This only works if you spread the word, so get it out there!
