Our Amazon Breasts

"The Amazons' power is in their breasts.
'Are they warriors or priestesses?' 'Both, I suppose.'"

From AmazoNation.com

This is why we like as Amazons to bare our breasts!-M.A.

My Amazon Definition

It doesn't have to do with how far you can run, how much weight you can lift, and certainly not with patriarchal militaries. It has to do with the strong and powerful Spirit of a woman, whether 4 foot 6" and disabled, one of the most Amazonian LeatherDyke Witches I've known, who put their heart and soul into their own empowerment and that of other women as a whole....it is a Sisterhood, or whether you're 5 ft plus and 300 lbs or anything inbetween. It IS about being able to defend oneself, whether physically through the martial arts, or spiritually through magic and a powerful sharpened Female Mind, or both together. It's about never being willing to submit to men or their systems or the victimization of ANY woman throughout the world. IT's about protecting the mysteries of the Goddess, women only places and space, and about never compromising on the FULL EMPOWERMENT of women as a whole..it's also about being a woman loving woman, a Dyke who connects to women and the Sacred Female in mind, body and Spirit, bringing out her passionate Sacred Flame of Female resistance and power. And those women of all sexual orientations who love their own and other Females' Power and strength, whether sexually, emotionally, intellectually, spiritually, on any or all of those levels.

Amazonism is a continual Female Resistance movement to all that patriarchal civilizations have tried to squander, suppress, beat, violate and put women down,our Priestesses, our Goddesses and our matriarchal ways of life in the past, and our Power, our Strength, our self-sufficiency, our creativity, and our Fierce Sisterhood with one another, and honor of the Sacred Female/Mother Earth/Goddess...and raising the next generation of girls and women to be similiarly empowered. This is what the Greeks and other patriarchal civilizations feared. We ARE real, and we ARE rising!
-In DykeAmazon Sisterhood,

One last thing: Amazons belong to an Amazon Sisterhood....whether you can connect with them now in the present, or connect with them in the past and/or future....that we are not women warriors alone in the world, but that we have a connection AS A SISTERHOOD to those who are likeminded, and that Sisterhood and sense of Sisterhood is just as important as to our own feisty and powerful qualities within where we DEMAND to be treated as equals, and fight till our last dying day for THE FULL AND TOTAL EMPOWERMENT OF OURSELVES AS WOMEN, WOMEN AS A WHOLE, AND MOTHER EARTH, AND OUR WOMON LOVING WOMON WAYS!

I am ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED and Chaz Bono has this in her documentary where she sits with a boyish little girl and ‘boy bonding’ where this little girl will have hormones introduced into her body at age 10 to stop from developing as female in puberty and once she reaches 16 will have opposite sex hormones introduced into her to change sex. I mean it’s bad enough that women of young legal age(18 plus) right and left are taking hormones and/or having their breasts removed or if not breast binding and hurting themselves, their lungs, their ribs and hearts in the process, but for the trans movement to go after ANY little girl or boy who rejects patriarchally forced on them femininity or masculinity, and wants to blend with either both genders toys/clothes, or be more unisex, or covets the opposite sex’s toys or clothes like I did with my brother’s stuff….to then extrapolate ‘they must be trans’ from there, REALLY REALLY DISGUSTS ME!

Thanks for bringing up the part about how Iran is footing the bill for these surgeries, how patriarchal and woman hating and anti-homosexual/anti-lesbian a culture it is, and that the CURE for homosexuality is transsexuality! I think THAT is the ultimate message. Or in the case of the already feminine young women who don’t like their status, they then want to become ‘male’ to relieve the sexism and then go after gay males! It’s all gotten way too weird for me, and NEVER ADDRESSES the problems in the first place: namely sexism and homophobia/lesbophobia and not want to have imposed cultural femininity or masculinity forced upon us…I HATED being female when I was young, in fact it wasn’t till I came out that I REALLY LEARNED TO LOVE MYSELF AS A WOMON!
This the other strong Dykes taught me, and especially one particular matriarchal Butch. THAT AS A BUTCH FEMALE/LIFELONG HARDCORE TOMBOY who rejected feminine roles and straitjacketing all my life, that I had a place in the Tribe of DykeAmazons…a place of honor, power and strength, like Joan of Arc, Sappho, the powerful ancient Amazons, Gertrude Stein and all the other cross dressing intellectual and artistic dykes of that era! Or those who disguised themselves as male for male privilege, fun, adventure, or to have the woman of their dreams, knowing as women they’d never have that privilege. But that didn’t mean they ‘wanted to be dudes’ only that they wanted the same privileges as men enjoyed, without the straitjacketing enforced on the female sex. THIS is what these young women and girls don’t get…that there IS another way to be, and that we should continue working hard so ALL WOMEN CAN BE FREE, AND PROUD IN THEIR BODIES/MINDS/SPIRITS,
