Blog of Feminist Activism Against Porn

This is a blog of the feminist activism of Charliegrrl and others. This is not a blog to debate the ins and outs of feminism, this is a blog to inspire people to get active and take it to the streets! This blog was started to challenge lads mags bringing porn into the mainstream...who knows what the blog will become...

Skinner can't control himself...

Mike Skinner from The Streets had to make an apology to Rachel Stevens for saying his song, 'Fit But You Know It...' was written about her...although he should be apologising about something else...

Nuts: 'Why did you recently apologise to Rachel Stevens..?'

Skinner: 'A woman from The Daily Star came up in a nightclub and asked,"Who is 'Fit But You Know It' about?"...she wouldn't go away...so I said, "Rachel Stevens, because I wouldn't be responsible for my actions if I was in the same room as her." It's the sort of thing you say to your mates but you don't want the girl hearing it. It wasn't really about Rachel Stevens. So we emailed an apology'. (9-15th June 2006 pg. 44)

Let me tell you Skinner, Rachel Stevens may well be a beautiful woman, but YOU are responsible for YOUR actions. When a man invades a woman's personal space to rape, sexually assault or harrass, it is ALWAYS the man's responsibility.

    I used to rather like the Streets. Oh well, he just sounds like a total dick head.
