Is It Just me Or Is There A Problem With This Activity

I am all for political activism and championing a cause but what idiot thought this was a good idea?

Or maybe I am just too old..maybe this sort of thing is acceptable these days in Cali…It would explain a lot….

Only thing missing from this photo is Max Hardcore.

I got this response on twitter

THAT WAS THE SPACE FARMERS MARKET ASSIGNED US. Maybe check b4 yelling at us 4 spending all weekend working for #NoProp60

This is Why The FSC should be disbanded…if just ONE of you geniuses had said NO…THIS IS NOT APPROPRIATE youd have gotten WAY more positive press attention…SMFH!

    Not living in that area… Is Kip’s toyland a kids toystore or an adult toy store? If its for kids (like Toys R Us) then that was a bad place to put a stand at.

    I do agree that it is inappropriate for this to be in front of a kids toy store. I do suspect, however, that this was done on purpose by whomever makes these decisions at that farmer’s market to help Weinstein and AHF. I tend to think that if Siouxsie Q (the chick in the red heart glasses, from what I have seen she is the one running the FSC day-to-day now that Diane Duke is gone) had objected she would have been told it was that spot or nothing. This is the same city whose board of commissioners passed Weinstein’s condom mandate via board vote in LA City (likely where this farmer’s market is located) rather than let the voters vote on it as was their option. This board mandates city policy, this farmer’s market is likely a county (a county that overwhelmingly voted to run porn out via a condom mandate) or city-run operation and either way you can bet your ass they are ordered to support Weinstein’s crusade to run porn out of the county/state right down to placement of their opponent’s informational booth at a farmer’s market and this is the result.

    My point is blame the right people. In this case the FSC reps likely did what they reasonably could with the options they had. Also, how do we know that Siouxsie Q didn’t object and was rebuffed? I am not typically a defender of the FSC but I know what lengths Weinstein will go to in order to get his way and this smacks of Weinstein’s (or more accurately his supporters in county or city government’s) doing. This requires more investigative work before claiming the FSC was wrong here, if this was their only option at that farmer’s market going ahead and working at that slot was better than not getting their word out at all.

    Mharris….The SMART thing to do…not that anyone has ever accused this lot of being smart….is to IMMEDIATELY say NO this is not appropriate AND call cbs, fox, nbc, abc the LA Times etc and point out that You are refusing to set up and WHY…solid gold press opportunity squandered because they are fucking morons. The bottom line anyone who went along with this regardless of why should have a swift kick in the ass….thats the damn problem nobody will take any responsibility

    If that would work I would be all for it, Mike. However, I doubt the press cares about a porn advocacy group enough to report on it there (if this were my local farmer’s market in Michigan we were talking about what you suggest would be press promotion gold — although I have known the man that runs my local farmer’s market for decades and he isn’t stupid enough to place a porn organization’s press desk even within a mile of a kids toy store). This is LA we are talking about, not Bumfuck, Michigan. I could be mistaken, we will never know now but I think it was stupid for the city/county to act on Weinstein’s playbook and place the FSC booth in front of a kids toy store. That makes the city/county and Weinstein the enemy here IMO. I can’t say what I personally would have done but in any other city (except maybe San Francisco) what you suggest would have worked. I just don’t think the press cares enough about this in LA to make it work for Siouxsie Q. For the record I honestly don’t know what I would have done in her place. I would like to plant my foot so far into Weinstein’s and whomever is managing this farmer’s market’s ass that a surgeon needs to cut those people in half to get it out. I would take a truckload of Truvada the day before and come up with some kind of foot/leg condom because I don’t want Weinstein’s AIDS infection.

    I do agree that the Fucking Screech Cabal needs a brain, though. In the meantime, my understanding is she still performs in porn from time to time, maybe she would do a scene for you — you can name the scene “Mike fucks the shit out of an FSC employee”. You can make it a bukkake if you wish — Siouxsie is cute as a button. 🙂

    I think the whole bunch — the FSC, the city/county, Weinstein and the management of the farmer’s market look like asses — and have for years (other than the farmer’s market management which have only looked like asses for the past week or two to my knowledge). Mike, I honestly don’t know what I would have done but at least your comment made me think so it was helpful in that way. I may have learned something here, maybe Siouxsie Q at FSC and the Weinstein Bunch at AHF did as well. I wonder what Pepe LePew (Mike knows who I am referring to) thinks about the whole mess or is he too busy fucking Castro twinks in SF to do his job and not even within 100 miles of Chatsworth right now. It seems like whenever the FSC does something public it is Siouxsie that is the face of the organization and not Pepe LePew who is supposed to do the job. Makes me think LePew is hardly at the office and leaving his job to his underlings. Whatever you can say about his predecessor (Diane Duke) she was actually at work doing her job, Siouxsie’s position didn’t even exist during her tenure. I hope LePew has taken a cut in his salary compared to Diane’s if he is just going to coast on his underlings coattails.

    We will know within the next couple of days if Weinstein’s run porn out of CA bill passes (maybe hours if it is a lopsided vote to one side or another). I hope to God it does not.

    Lol…. very easy to ask organizer to change space UNTIL you set your shit up and opt to make excuses. Lots of years doing kid stuff and if an event coordinator walked up & asked if we’d trade spaces we’d jump on chance to move by the (toy) store better matched to target demographics. Never had an event organizer object or refuse to move a kids targeted campaign to a more suitable location. Flea market once gave us space between a tables selling dido’s and bullets…. ammo not toys, apologized and brought a flatbed truck to move the stuff we’d piled up as various volunteers showed up with their part of display at our assigned spot.
