    'Feminists Have Better Sex': Swedish Party

    Sweden's feminist political party is hoping logo items featuring a bold claim about their supporters’ supposed prowess in the bedroom will raise awareness about the party during the holiday shopping season.

    “Feminists have better sex,” the Feminist Initiative (FI) political party claims in its recently launched line of logo items.

    Among the available items featuring the provocative claim are dish towels to help ‘”wipe away those dusty old norms” and buttons that will help FI supporters boost their chances of “snagging someone like-minded to spend the night with”.

    Tote bags and t-shirts bearing the feminists’ declaration of superior sex are also for sale.

    According to party spokesperson Veronica Svärd, FI is counting on the gear to raise awareness and money for the party ahead of Sweden’s 2010 parliamentary elections by tempting Swedish shoppers in need of last minute holiday gifts.

    “They make great gifts that can help generate a discussion about gender roles and the connection between equality and better sex,” she told The Local.

    Svärd explained that the claim is based on the results of an American research project which concluded that couples that divide responsibilities more equally are more satisfied with their sex lives.

    “We want to let people know that gender equality and a better sex life are connected,” she said.

    The party has also launched an accompanying Facebook group that has already attracted over 1,000 members and provides an explanation of the party’s definition of “feminist”.

    “Feminists, both guys and girls, are all of us who see that there are injustices between the sexes in our society,” FI writes on its Facebook page.

    “It’s something we believe should be changed. It’s not any more complicated than that.”

    The party goes on to argue that people unwittingly take preconceived notions about gender roles with them into the bedroom, which can affect the quality of a couple’s sex.

    “A relationship which is equal and critical of the reigning order becomes a more open and pleasant relationship. Such relationships produce more and better sex!” the party writes.

    Svärd emphasized that the campaign, which was spearheaded by the party’s Stockholm chapter, was also undertaken with “a great deal of humour”.

    “It’s supposed to be something fun,” she said, adding, however, that the Feminist Initiative believes the somewhat tongue-in-cheek message will benefit the party in several ways.

    “It allows people who are maybe less inclined to talk about politics to start thinking about gender equity,” she said.

    Svärd also hopes the sexually suggestive slogan will help counter what she claims is a persistent misconception that feminists don’t like sex.

    “That’s a myth that won’t go away even though there’s nothing to back it up,” she said.

    Not all feminists have been enamoured with the campaign however. Writing in tabloid Expressen, commentator Elin Grelsson said the party risked burdening women with feelings of guilt.

    "In Feminist Initiative's world, sex seems so be synonymous with equitable, heterosexual couples who have fair, non-domineering sex with each other. As an ideal, it excludes a lot of people and is just as bad for the cause of sexual liberation as gender roles.

    "Where are the faked orgasms of lesbian sex in the Feminist Initiative analysis? Or domineering all-male sex? If feels tiresome to have a campaign that creates new ideals rather than tearing down the old ones," she wrote.

    The video is the odd part for me. It kinda degrades women as sex objects.

    Besides, I did not know feminists even had sex.

    Ah, but Baughman - you fail to realise - one of the main aspects of feminism has been for feminists to abuse the power of feminine sexuality to wield power over men. Our chivalrous concepts of such "slutty" sexuality being degrading to women are wholly inapplicable to these women's way of thinking - the feminist vision of the future is one where men are block-headed sex toys to be used and disposed of by powerful women.

    This is true.. there is no such thing as a high-minded leftist agenda. It's all about power transfer and destruction of traditional values of every kind.

    Maybe I don't understand how feminists think or that I don't want to understand how they think.

    From what I've read, there's a generational shift in the 'feminist' movement. The older/original type of the man-hating bull-dyke, Hillary Clinton supporter, short haircuts, constant chip on the shoulder etc has been replaced by the 'newer' type 'feminist'. This newer type is still into 'career women' and 'gender equality' and the usual collection of leftist BS, but is more into 'girl power' and pop culture/mtv slut and not antagonistic towards men like the past generation. This changeover is quite fine with me because my friends who are about 10-20 years older than me used to have to work with the nasty old bulldyke feminist types and even have them as bosses, and it was the most godawful thing imaginable from the way they tell it, but now the female coworkers and bosses I've had aren't too much different than male ones.

    Feminists have always fought for power. Whether it be 'girl power' or ' woman power' has not changed. The fact that they are using themselves as sex objects just shows their views are wrong.

    I'm trying to remember the word used to describe this type of behavior, is it hypocrisy?

    The militant man haters are very much behind the younger ' girl power' types. The whole mission of these leftist is to break down the traditional family structure. If the people are loyal to their families and folk then they are stronger and less likely fall for a leftist agenda.

    You have to ask yourself are we better off now or before the leftist, bra burning, anti-family feminists movement?

    These women acting like cheap whores and calling it feminism are degrading to themselves and other decent women. There is nothing wrong with women wanting to be sexy and sexual just show some class while doing it, and keep it private.
