A Femenlaunch! (PARTIAL NUDITY)

Filed under: blogging — Tags: , — edge of the sandbox @ 2:11 pm

I’m still trying to figure out what’s in it for me.  My three most hit upon posts are about the Ukrainian topless protest group Femen.  They were fun to write about, and a certain fugitive was kind enough to include me into his rule 5 round ups.  Then people started linking, and, more importantly, search engines found me.  From now on, whenever Femen is up to something, I get a surge of hits.

Why not? Gratuitous and trendy backlit Femen photo. Backlit is appropriate for the occasion, namely commemoration of the 25th Chernobyl anniversary.

This Monday, Femen made it to the MSN front page with their protests of soccer tournament in Ukraine — they allege it brings in pimps.  (Attention soccer fans: not all Ukrainian women are Femen hot.)  I got nearly 1,000 page views that day.  As much as it was exiting to see all the hits, I kind of doubt too many people looking for pictures of hot semi-nude Eastern European ladies will stick with that blog.  Even if some are interested in what I have to say, I’m pretty sure they will not look around.  If I were making money off this little hobby, it wouldn’t matter of course, but I’m not.

That’s the soccer tournament protest that apparently drew 2 participants and grabbed headlines across the globe. The recent NOW protest against Rush had 5 more chicks but got not nearly as much attention. If only the NOW members were hot and naked!

On one hand, I’m watching it all with amusement, but on the other hand, when I follow a blogger, WordPress sends her a note about my blog with my top 3 posts, and they are all about Femen.  I’m afraid prospective readers are bound to be disappointed.



  1. As a conservative woman, I find it interesting/appalling that women are so willing to degrade themselves in the fight for ‘womens rights’. I found your blog through ‘Legal Insurrection’ and have much appreciated your insight about these matters as well as others. Keep up the good work. We need more conversation about the political arena from the conservative womans point of view.

  3. Topless young Ukranian blondes.

    Tough to see why you’re pulling in traffic on those posts.

    • On the other hand, blogging about the misadventures of Warren Beatty’s daughter also brings traffic.
