Objects of Terrorism

My sister just sent me information on an artist/activist who's doing some amazing work in the area of women's sexuality. Her name is Heather Corinna, and she's based in Minneapolis. She co-blogs on the scarleteen newswire, which provides activist alerts and sexuality education aimed at young women (and is now on the blogroll). But her true calling is as a writer and visual artist, particularly in portraiture and self-portraiture. This image is titled: "Last time I was at the airport, a security agent informed me that this object was a potential weapon of terrorism." (click the image for a bigger picture):

Her website has other photos (warning: not all of them are work safe), and the way she plays with female sexuality in her work is really, really interesting. Definitely worth checking out.
