29th September What’s On

Sunday 2nd October

OCCUPY MCR
http://www.occupymanchester.org/ 

Tories not welcome!
Why do you want to mobilise against the Tory Party Conference?

From 2-5 October 2011 the Conservative Party are coming to Manchester to hold their annual conference. All eyes will be on this city as the Tory’s analyse their progress in implementing their disastrous program of public sector spending cuts, and reveal plans for the years ahead. This conference should not go unopposed. We intend to make the opposition to the cuts and the widely shared belief in a better alternative future visible, and we’d like to do this with you!

We have been inspired by the large and vibrant student protests that took place last winter, by the dynamic and high-impact actions of UK Uncut, and by the popular demonstrations we are witnessing across North Africa, the Middle East, Spain and Greece. The times are changing and people are speaking out against injustice and inequality.

What are you planning to do?

We need to try new forms of opposition. We have marched in our tens of thousands at previous party conferences, and in our hundreds of thousands in London. Crucial as they are, more marches in bigger numbers will not be enough. As the anti-war protests of 2003 showed, the government finds them easy to ignore. As anger at the Con-Dem cuts grows we need to make it more visible.

The cuts are for the benefit of the rich – we refuse to pay for their crisis!

The TUC have called a national demonstration to be held in Manchester on Sunday October 2nd. That
afternoon anti-cuts protestors will occupy Albert Square to create an assembly of protest on the
doorstep of the Tory’s conference, a symbol of the mass opposition to the cuts and a place for real
debate and discussion about the alternatives and the possibilities.

Come ready to make noise, and stay for the long haul!

Friday 30th September

Endtyme Records presents the first in a series of monthly extreme and experimental music events. These unique events, part band night/part club night, will feature a heady mix of challenging live acts interspersed with guest DJ’s spinning the best in DOOM/DEATH/BLACK/GRIND/NOI

SE/INDUSTRIAL, bands such as:

Napalm Death, Melt Banana, Sunn 0))), Goatsnake, Godflesh, Throbbing Gristle, Coil, Whitehouse, Swans, Extreme Noise Terror, Eyehategod, Burzum, The Berzerker, Boris, Merzbow, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Altar of Plagues, Wolves in the Throne Room, Electric Wizard, Bong, Dead Ravens Choir, Shit n Shine, Hey Collosus, Painkiller/John Zorn, Dethscalator, Aethenor, Blut Aus Nord, Nunslaughter, Decapitated, Cruciamentum, Vader, Origin, Conan and loads more outsider music!

…so get sweaty in the pit, drown yourself in heavy vibes and stomp the night away to the best the underground has to offer. Spread the word, show your support and prepare to be blown away!

LIVE ACTS:

CUT HANDS (Susan Lawly/Very Friendly) –

‘The Stunning new project from William Bennett of Whitehouse: Cut Hands represents the apex of Bennett’s investigations into the ritual/trance aspect of afro-noise with a series of instrumentals that combine African instrumentation – head-hunter horns, hand-percussion, djembes, doundouns, ksings – with threatening minimal electronics in a way that further exaggerates the psychological firewalk aspect of the last few Whitehouse albums.

The opening “Welcome To The Feast Of Trumpets” is a masterclass in eviscerating minimalism with nothing but whipcrack beats and air raid horns generating an air of extreme malevolence. Whitehouse were always at their most effective when they were at their most reductive and Cut Hands feels like the full exposure of that group’s exo-skeleton, stripping back the attack to its most primal basics while upping the level of implied threat. It sounds approximately like nothing else: “A bludgeoning mix of machine and vaudou/Central African percussion plus other acoustic instruments combine to create one of the most physically intense musical experiences ever.

Since 2007’s Whitehouse album Racket, and after his original ‘Afro Noise’ mix became one of the most downloaded experimental mixes ever made, William Bennett’s remarkable Cut Hands album has seen 4 long years of meticulously obsessive studio work in the making, notably deploying his special collection of Congolese and Ghanaian percussion instruments’ – Volcanic Tongue

Endtyme is proud to present CUT HANDS (William Bennett/Whitehouse) for his first live action under this new guise in Manchester!

After we played host to Whitehouse’s ‘final’ UK performance back in 2007, William Bennett has spent the last four years, since that legendary show, meticulously crafting the debut album from CUT HANDS. The debut was finally released back in May 2011 and consequently sold out of the initial pressings within a few short months!

Miss this and miss out!

GUM TAKES TOOTH (Endtyme/Tigerblast) –

GUM TAKES TOOTH are currently in the process of gathering material together for their first ENDTYME release together with BLUE SABBATH BLACK FIJI which is set for release Autumn/Winter 2011. Here’s the low down:

‘Gum Takes Tooth, a thunderous rampage of noise tempered with an aptitude for precise rhythms and splintered melody, is a single-headed beast with two bodies: a duo of Thomas Fuglesang on live acoustic drums, physically wired into home grown electronic instruments and bare circuit boards, tweaked, molded and mangled in real-time by Jussi Brightmore.
The group formed in 2009, decisively bringing together their wildly varied influences of out-there noise, metal, primeval rhythms, spacious psyche, pan-ethnic oddities, primal punk, acid house and vintage electronics on their debut album, ‘Silent Cenotaph’. Their incredible live set has found them in high demand, with storming festival sets including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Supersonic and British Wildlife Festival in 2010-11, plus supports with luminaries such as Napalm Death, Melt-Banana, Acid Mothers Temple and Otto Von Schirach.

Both musicians have enjoyed disparate and involved travails through the musical underground, first playing together in the white noise pop outfit Infants. Brightmore featured in the pioneering I’m Being Good, the improvisational Milche Grand and Blood Stereo with releases on John Olson of Wolf Eyes’ American Tapes, Mike Connelly of Wolf Eyes’ Gods of Tundra and alongside releases by Thurston Moore on Dylan Nyoukis’ Chocolate Monk. Brightmore also co-germinated Chrome Hoof from its conception as a trio to multi-limbed prog juggernaut. Meanwhile Fuglesang, previously of Agoskodo Teliverek, now moonlights with Wart Biter and amongst numerous other projects.’ – Tigertrap 2011

BLUE SABBATH BLACK FIJI (Endtyme/At War With False Noise) –

French born, improvised noise guitar and broken electronic duo (and partners) now residing in Glasgow, UK. BSBF have clocked up 15 ‘official’ releases; have had countless appearances on compilations and as remixers. They mix and manipulate a multitude of genres into one unholy, riotous noisefest. Massively intense live performances, BSBF were handpicked last year for Supersonic Festival in Birmingham as well as the highly regarded 1,2,3,4 Festival in Shoreditch, London, just this August. The pair are currently recording material with Gum Takes Tooth for Endtyme Records.

FROM THE BOGS OF AUGHISKA (Human Jigsaw/Lone Vigil) –

‘Dark / Black Ambient noisescapes inspired by Celtic history, the harsh, rugged west coast of Ireland, misty boglands, dark nights, rural isolation, forests, The Burrens flora and fauna. Cavernous soundscapes (similar to Inade, Satori and Lustmord), moving into Vinterriket territory, with interesting tales of banshees and the pagan mythology of Ireland. The musical equivalent of standing atop the majestic Cliffs Of Moher with a gale force wind in your face.’

Side project from the man behind the extreme electronic act Drugzilla and the Human Jigsaw record label, FROM THE BOGS OF AUGHISKA is a mixture of drone and dark ambience, which plays heavily on Celtic history. FRROM THE BOGS OF AUGHISKA gained a huge amount of attention and rave reviews following on from his first full length release on the UK based LONE VIGIL record label. He has just been on tour as main support for extreme metal legends ANAAL NATHRAKH under his DRUGZILLA moniker and scored a support slot with avant-garde behemoths ULVER, for a rare appearence in Holland under the FROM THE BOGS OF AUGHISKA guise. We are looking forward to his first ever FROM THE BOGS OF AUGHISKA UK live show!!

Globo infantil.

La revolución social no es una Utopía, aunque tampoco una soleada próxima.
No siento el viento cálido que avisa el alejamiento de las nubes negras.
Estoy convencido de que no es una Utopía por que ha sido claro en la historia
que ninguna tiranía dura 1000 años
aunque algunas 900 si.

Se que es imposible la estabilidad eterna
y aún más improbable la perfección de una maquina construida sobre la ilusión de la existencia.
Al capitalismo si no lo destruye la gente
lo destruirá su mismo falso piso
basado ahora en la ilusión
del dinero inexistente.

Tampoco creo que cuando caiga
solo por eso necesariamente venga otro sistema mejor.
Pero por lo menos
mientras lo conocemos
tendremos el tiempo para soñar como destruir a ese nuevo monstruo.

Precisamente por eso creo
que nunca estaremos cómodos con ideas y estructuras que duren intactas mucho tiempo.
Nuestros cerebros son dinámicos
los momentos de ocio los aprovechamos para dejar crecer el tedio.
Ahora, tampoco creo que por si solo se acabe
ni mucho menos que los reyes entreguen las llaves de sus castillos.
Siempre seremos necesarios los guerreros zapadores de minas
así nuestra pólvora sea sencillamente nuestras molestas ideas.

Del futuro, anhelo
contemplo preveiendo
la caida segura
la ilusión terca
el brazo nunca torcido
y la musculatura siempre cansada.

Pero prefiero miles de veces ese cansansio que el dormir
puede que en algún momento tome una siesta
pero nunca dejare de tener prendido el despertador.

Y no
soy incapaz de esperarlo sentado todo el tiempo
de noche en cuando mis palabras calientan mi cuerpo
de cuando en vez mis amigos me riegan con su adrenalina
y camino con ellos
aunque todos sabemos que el camino es duro
y que es posible que muchos nos dejemos mientras caminamos.
Otros lo dejarán quietos
otros preferirán dejarlo antes de ser pizados por las sombras negras de la tortura y el silencio.

No acepto el miedo como destino
siempre lloraré lo justo pero olvidaré pronto el riesgo.
Cuando veo a mi alrededor en días como estos
en que la esperanza explota como globo plástico en fiesta infantil
veo desasociego, incertidumbre y soledad.
De todos estos años de juego, lo mejor que he aprendido es a aguantar.
Siempre llega un día nuevo y el sol nunca deja de aparecer.
Aunque no logre todos los sueños
ellos nunca dejan de crecer
y como este mundo a ellos los prohibe
no tengo más que a ese mundo
hacerle cambiar de parecer.

Endtyme is proud to present CUT HANDS (William Bennett/Whitehouse) for his first live action under this new guise in Manchester!

After we played host to Whitehouse’s ‘final’ UK performance back in 2007, William Bennett has spent the last four years, since that legendary show, meticulously crafting the debut album from CUT HANDS. The debut was finally released back in May 2011 and consequently sold out of the initial pressings within a few short months!

Bolivya, doğaya insanlarla eşit haklar tanıyacak tarihi “Toprak Ana Yasası”nı çıkartmaya hazırlanıyor.

* Bu haber, PV Pulse‘ta 18 Nisan 2011 tarihinde Keph Senett imzasıyla yayımlanan “Bolivia Set to Pass Historic ‘Law of Mother Earth’ Which Will Grant Nature Equal Rights to Humans” haberinden; konunun Türkçe yayınlarda hak ettiği ilgiyi görememiş olduğu düşüncesiyle çevrilmiştir.

 

Bolivya, politikacıların ve taban örgütlenmelerinin işbirliğiyle, doğayla insana eşit haklar ve korumalar tanıyacak tarihi bir “Toprak Ana Yasası” çıkartmaya koyuluyor. La Ley de Derechos de la Madre Tierra adındaki mevzuat, doğa korumacı yaklaşımlarda ve eylemlerde radikal bir değişimi, sanayi üzerinde yeni kontrol tedbirlerini ve çevresel yıkımın azaltılmasını amaçlıyor.

Yasa, doğal kaynakları bereket olarak yeniden tanımlarken, doğaya insanla aynı hakları tevcih ediyor; ki bunların içinde yaşama ve varolma hakkı, yaşamsal döngülerini ve süreçlerini insan tahrifatından özgürce sürdürme hakkı, saf su ve temiz hava hakkı, denge hakkı, kirletilmeme hakkı ve hücresel yapıların modifiye edilmemesi ve genetik olarak değiştirilmemesi hakkı var. Belki de en tartışmalı nokta, doğaya “ekosistemlerin dengesini ve bölge halkını etkileyen mega altyapı ve kalkınma projeleriyle bozulmama” hakkı tanınması.

2005’in sonlarına doğru, Bolivya ilk yerli başkanı olan Evo Morales’i seçti. Morales lafını esirgemeyen, hem ülkesi içinde hem de Birleşmiş Milletler’de esaslı değişiklikler için mücadele veren bir çevre koruma şampiyonu. Güney Amerika’nın en fakir ülkelerinden biri olan Bolivya, uzun süreler, yıkıcı endüstriyel faaliyetlerin ve iklim değişiminin sonuçlarına katlanmak zorunda kaldı; ancak Morales’in ve onun hükümet üyelerinin özverili çabalarına rağmen, kaygıları BM’de büyük ölçüde görmezden gelindi.

Daha geçen yıl, 2010’da, Bolivya Dışişleri Bakanı David Choquehuanca, “Kopenhag Uzlaşması’nda kalkınmış ülkelerin yaptığı sera gazı azaltım taahhütlerinin yetersizliği hakkındaki” üzüntülerini dile getirmişti. Beyanatında, bazı uzmanların “sanayileşme öncesi seviyelerin dört dereceye kadar üstünde” sıcaklık artışı öngördükleri iddiasına işaret etmişti. “Durum ciddi”, demişti Choquehuanca. “Sanayileşme öncesi seviyelerin bir dereceden ötesindeki bir sıcaklık artışı, Ant dağlarındaki tüm buzullarımızın yok olması ve muhtelif ada ve kıyı bölgelerimizin sular altında kalmasına sebep olacaktır.”

2009’da, meclisin 22 Nisan’ı “Uluslararası Toprak Ana Günü” ilan etmesinin hemen ardından, Morales bir basın açıklaması yaparak, “İnsan soyunu güvence altına almak istiyorsak, gezegeni güvence altına almamız gerekiyor. Birleşmiş Milletler’in bir sonraki başlıca görevi budur.” dedi. Bolivya anayasasında aynı sene yapılan bir değişiklik, tüm hukuk sisteminde bir dönüşüme yol açtı – bu yeni yasayı da ortaya çıkaran bir dönüşüme.

Toprak Ana Yasası, yerli inanışındaki, insanın diğer tüm varlıklarla eşit olması gibi birçok öğretide temelini buluyor. “Atalarımız bize bitkiler ve hayvanlarla beraber bir büyük aileye mensup olduğumuzu öğrettiler. Gezegendeki her şeyin büyük bir ailenin parçası olduğuna inanıyoruz.” dedi Choquehuanca. “Biz yerli halklar olarak, kendi değerlerimizle; enerji, iklim, gıda ve finans krizlerine çare bulunmasına katkı koyabiliriz.” Mevzuat, hükümete ülkedeki sanayiyi izlemek ve denetlemek için yeni hukuki yetkiler tanıyacak.

Yasanın hazırlanmasında rol alan 3,5 milyon üyeli Confederación Sindical Única de Trabajadores Campesinos de Bolivia’nın önderi Undarico Pinto, “Mevcut yasalar yeterince güçlü değil” dedi. “Yeni yasa, sanayiyi şeffaflaştıracak. Halkın sanayiyi ulusal, bölgesel ve yerel düzeylerde denetlemesine imkan sağlayacak.”

Boilvya, bir Toprak Ana Bakanlığı kuracak; ama bunun ötesinde, mevzuatın yürürlüğe konmasıyla ilgili birçok pürüz var. Şu son derece açık ki Bolivya, bu çevresel mecburiyetlerle ülkenin GSYİH’sine katkı koyan – madencilik gibi – sanayiler arasında bir denge kurmak zorunda kalacak.

Bolivya’nın uygulamadaki başarıları ve başarısızlıkları, tüm dünya ülkelerindeki politika için öğretici olacaktır. “Uygulamanın tüm dünyada müthiş bir yankı bulacağını” dile getiren Kanadalı aktivist Maude Barlow. “Bu yankı, topraklarını ve halklarını sömürüden korumaya çalışan diğer güney ülkelerinde başlayacaktır; ama ben mesela Alberta’da katranlı kuma karşı mücadele eden toplulukların da sürece sıkıca sarılacağını düşünüyorum.” dedi.

Anayasasında benzer hedefleri yücelten Ekvador da Bolivya’nın girişimine çoktan destek vermiş ülkeler arasında. Diğer destekçiler arasında Nikaragua, Venezuela, Saint Vincent ve Grenadinler ile Antigua ve Barbuda var.

Morales’in partisi Sosyalizme Doğru Hareket’in iki mecliste de çoğunluğu elinde tutması sebebiyle, yasaya ulusal düzeyde bir muhalefet beklenmiyor. 20 Nisan’da, yani bu seneki “Uluslararası Toprak Ana Günü”nden sadece iki gün önce, Morales BM’ye bir taslak anlaşma sunarak uluslararası toplumda müzakereler için başlama vuruşunu yapacak.


Çevirenin notu: Bu yazının orijinalinin yayınlanmasının ardından, 20 Nisan 2011’de, Evo Morales Birleşmiş Milletler Güvenlik Konseyi’nde bir açıklama yaparak doğaya insanlarla eşit haklar verilmesini savundu; öneri, birçok ülke temsilcisi ve birçok kanaat önderi tarafından coşkuyla karşılandı. Haziran 2011’de Almanya’nın Bonn kentinde yapılan Birleşmiş Milletler İklim Değişimi Çerçeve Sözleşmesi (UNFCCC) toplantısında, Bolivya büyükelçisi Pablo Solon’un ısrarlı çabalarına rağmen üye ülkeler Bolivya’nın iklim değişimine karşı önerdiği güzergahı kabul etmeye yanaşmadılar. Solon, toplantı sonunda yaptığı basın açıklamasında, “Burada geçirdiğimiz iki hafta boyunca, bilim dünyasından ziyade iş dünyasının kaale alındığını gözlemledik. Salımlarda kesinti yapılmasıyla ilgili hiçbir hamle yapılmazken, sürekli yeni pazar mekanizmalarının yaygınlaştırılmasıyla ilgili öneriler dinledik.” dedi.

Get clued up in time for October’s Conservative Party conference. Recent protests in Manchester have taught us that it is important for everyone to be on their guard against police misconduct and brutality. We must know the law, watch the police, and support each other!

* Legal observing
* Activist trauma
* Protest and the law, incl. photos & filming, face coverings, terrorism, breach of peace, public order, trespass, etc.
* Dealing with the police
* Assertiveness
* Stop and Search
* Post-arrest rights and process
* Police complaints and civil actions

Look out for a more detailed programme nearer the time. We will have regular breaks to help keep everyone focused. There will also be a chillout room away from the main workshop area where there will be other activist support materials for you to read and take away.

Refreshments and vegan lunch will be provided free or for a small donation. Please let us know of any other access needs or dietary requirements and we’ll do our best to meet these. This venue is wheelchair accessible and open to non-students.

LIVE ACTS:

CUT HANDS (Susan Lawly/Very Friendly) –

‘The Stunning new project from William Bennett of Whitehouse: Cut Hands represents the apex of Bennett’s investigations into the ritual/trance aspect of afro-noise with a series of instrumentals that combine African instrumentation – head-hunter horns, hand-percussion, djembes, doundouns, ksings – with threatening minimal electronics in a way that further exaggerates the psychological firewalk aspect of the last few Whitehouse albums.

The opening “Welcome To The Feast Of Trumpets” is a masterclass in eviscerating minimalism with nothing but whipcrack beats and air raid horns generating an air of extreme malevolence. Whitehouse were always at their most effective when they were at their most reductive and Cut Hands feels like the full exposure of that group’s exo-skeleton, stripping back the attack to its most primal basics while upping the level of implied threat. It sounds approximately like nothing else: “A bludgeoning mix of machine and vaudou/Central African percussion plus other acoustic instruments combine to create one of the most physically intense musical experiences ever.

Since 2007’s Whitehouse album Racket, and after his original ‘Afro Noise’ mix became one of the most downloaded experimental mixes ever made, William Bennett’s remarkable Cut Hands album has seen 4 long years of meticulously obsessive studio work in the making, notably deploying his special collection of Congolese and Ghanaian percussion instruments’ – Volcanic Tongue

Endtyme is proud to present CUT HANDS (William Bennett/Whitehouse) for his first live action under this new guise in Manchester!

After we played host to Whitehouse’s ‘final’ UK performance back in 2007, William Bennett has spent the last four years, since that legendary show, meticulously crafting the debut album from CUT HANDS. The debut was finally released back in May 2011 and consequently sold out of the initial pressings within a few short months!

Miss this and miss out!

GUM TAKES TOOTH (Endtyme/Tigerblast) –

GUM TAKES TOOTH are currently in the process of gathering material together for their first ENDTYME release together with BLUE SABBATH BLACK FIJI which is set for release Autumn/Winter 2011. Here’s the low down:

‘Gum Takes Tooth, a thunderous rampage of noise tempered with an aptitude for precise rhythms and splintered melody, is a single-headed beast with two bodies: a duo of Thomas Fuglesang on live acoustic drums, physically wired into home grown electronic instruments and bare circuit boards, tweaked, molded and mangled in real-time by Jussi Brightmore.
The group formed in 2009, decisively bringing together their wildly varied influences of out-there noise, metal, primeval rhythms, spacious psyche, pan-ethnic oddities, primal punk, acid house and vintage electronics on their debut album, ‘Silent Cenotaph’. Their incredible live set has found them in high demand, with storming festival sets including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Supersonic and British Wildlife Festival in 2010-11, plus supports with luminaries such as Napalm Death, Melt-Banana, Acid Mothers Temple and Otto Von Schirach.

Both musicians have enjoyed disparate and involved travails through the musical underground, first playing together in the white noise pop outfit Infants. Brightmore featured in the pioneering I’m Being Good, the improvisational Milche Grand and Blood Stereo with releases on John Olson of Wolf Eyes’ American Tapes, Mike Connelly of Wolf Eyes’ Gods of Tundra and alongside releases by Thurston Moore on Dylan Nyoukis’ Chocolate Monk. Brightmore also co-germinated Chrome Hoof from its conception as a trio to multi-limbed prog juggernaut. Meanwhile Fuglesang, previously of Agoskodo Teliverek, now moonlights with Wart Biter and amongst numerous other projects.’ – Tigertrap 2011

BLUE SABBATH BLACK FIJI (Endtyme/At War With False Noise) –

French born, improvised noise guitar and broken electronic duo (and partners) now residing in Glasgow, UK. BSBF have clocked up 15 ‘official’ releases; have had countless appearances on compilations and as remixers. They mix and manipulate a multitude of genres into one unholy, riotous noisefest. Massively intense live performances, BSBF were handpicked last year for Supersonic Festival in Birmingham as well as the highly regarded 1,2,3,4 Festival in Shoreditch, London, just this August. The pair are currently recording material with Gum Takes Tooth for Endtyme Records.

http://tinyurl.com/3sfl7or – Live in London

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Blue-Sabbath-Black-Fiji

FROM THE BOGS OF AUGHISKA (Human Jigsaw/Lone Vigil) –

‘Dark / Black Ambient noisescapes inspired by Celtic history, the harsh, rugged west coast of Ireland, misty boglands, dark nights, rural isolation, forests, The Burrens flora and fauna. Cavernous soundscapes (similar to Inade, Satori and Lustmord), moving into Vinterriket territory, with interesting tales of banshees and the pagan mythology of Ireland. The musical equivalent of standing atop the majestic Cliffs Of Moher with a gale force wind in your face.’

Side project from the man behind the extreme electronic act Drugzilla and the Human Jigsaw record label, FROM THE BOGS OF AUGHISKA is a mixture of drone and dark ambience, which plays heavily on Celtic history. FRROM THE BOGS OF AUGHISKA gained a huge amount of attention and rave reviews following on from his first full length release on the UK based LONE VIGIL record label. He has just been on tour as main support for extreme metal legends ANAAL NATHRAKH under his DRUGZILLA moniker and scored a support slot with avant-garde behemoths ULVER, for a rare appearence in Holland under the FROM THE BOGS OF AUGHISKA guise. We are looking forward to his first ever FROM THE BOGS OF AUGHISKA UK live show!!

Fashion giant Topman has decided to withdraw two t-shirts from their latest range after they received large amounts of comments from people furious over the items messages. The first t-shirt in question bore the text “Nice New Girlfriend: What Breed Is She?” whilst the second, a violent pillar-box red number, lists a series of excuses for what the reader is lead to assume is an act of domestic violence, including “You provoked me” and “I was drunk”. A campaign against the blatant sexism began on Twitter, where Tender, a London-based charity that works with young people to tackle the causes of domestic violence, picked it up. This campaign led to a Facebook group, which quickly picked up 332 members before, just a few hours after the backlash began, Topman announced their decision to stop selling the T-shirts.

Topman showing once more that sexism sells.

 

A spokeswoman said in a statement: “We have received some negative feedback regarding two of our printed T-shirts. While we would like to stress that these T-shirts were meant to be lighthearted and carried no serious meaning, we have made the decision to remove these (sic) from store and on-line as soon as possible. We would like to apologise to those who may have been offended by these designs.

The incident is the third in a month in which there has been controversy regarding t-shirt slogans produced by major names. First the Kate Moss, Slogan For Girls t-shirt which read, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels”. Then the horrific JC Penny girls’ top that exclaimed the wearer was “Too pretty for homework” and that as such her brother had to do it. The implication that girls should make boys do all the serious stuff while they sit pretty and only ugly girls do work is a bit hard to swallow. If clothing lines give out the message that its okay for girls not to do homework, it’s going to have an inevitable reaction on how young people see themselves. The gender gap starts at school with fewer than 9% of girls opting to take GSCE Physics as it is seen as a ‘boys’ subject. So messages that girls should get their brothers to do maths (another so called ‘boy’ subject) aren’t helpful.
