Pictures from Feminist Pumpkin Carving

Well, first I promised. Then I stalled. But today I keep my word and post the photos from our Feminist Pumpkin Carving Night. So, without further ado, I bring you...

Tribute Pumpkins: Fabulous Feminists
Princess Leia Pumpkin

"I don't know who you are or where you've come from, but from now on you'll do as I say, okay?" Enough said.

Princess Bonobo Pumpkin

OK, I admit - this was my first attempt at Leia. But, seeing as the Bonobos are close cousins of humans who live in matriarchal social groups, the resulting Princess Bonobo can still be proudly displayed.

Space Alien Watermelon

SI is pro-immigration! Also, since space aliens do not conform to our sexist stereotypes and space women feel no need to constantly flaunt their secondary sex characteristics, you might not be able to immediately recognize this alien as a woman just by looking at her, umm... melon.

Jack O' Lanterns: Scary Sexist Pumpkins
Vladimir Putin

After Russian President Putin
called on his nation's women to have more children, journalist Vladimir Rakhmankov wrote a satiric article calling Putin "the nation's phallic symbol." Prosecutors have charged him with insulting a representative of the state; if convicted, he faces up to a year's hard labor.
Just imagine how scary the US would be if we could face hard labor every time we called our own president a dick for wanting to govern women's baby-making.

George Bush

The list of Bush's anti-woman policies is long, so click here to see his sexist policies, actions, and opinions enumerated.

Finally, a group photo:

Happy Halloween!

Mine (W) is the best. He looks like he has horns.

Very strong work, both of you. Strong work, indeed.

Thanks, we try. I regret not being able to bring you a good picture of the lit Putin pumpkin, he was the best work of the year by far.

We still have a leftover pumpkin, so we might carve again this season. If the C-ville crowd decides to have their traditional pumpkin carving bash, send me the pictures of the lady pumpkins and I will post them.

Is Putin pouting?

La Pobre Habladora said...

Usually. Especially when his nation is making fun of him for running around shirtless on National Conception Day. But perhaps he was just looking for an A&F.

Did you have a pumpkin party without us?

Ummm... it is impossible to say if we had a party without you if you post under "anonymous."
