Early Feminist Blogging: Toilet Graffitti

The only graffitti in the stall closest to the door at the Vic Theatre was right under the "bog roll": Unite to end racism and homophobia today!

Will see if they updated in the adjoining stall on my next trip there.

What is a bog roll? Is that toilet paper? Never heard that before.... sheltered.

ahh, the many slang for toilet paper: mountain money, TP, bumpf, Striking paper - first produced, like everything usefull it seems - in China in the 14th century. But it wasn't until 1942 that 2-ply toilet paper came about - and now, due to modern technology, I can have cute little puppies on the paper I am about to wipe my bum with....how cute!

Does anyone still write the feminist graffiti that was everywhere in the 1970s/80s: "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle"? I saw whole debates about feminism written in public toilets - an early form of blogging, I suppose.
