This website is about ending vivisection of bunnies and rabbits. Science can certainly do better than animal abuse as a methodology. Bunnies and rabbits are only used because they are docile and easy to breed, not because they share characteristics with humans. Promoting farming and spiritual practices that incorperate anthropomorphism increases respect for animals and the Earth. >Feministry Corp is also a nonprofit registered in the State of MA by the Secretary of State's Office. Established in 2017, Feministry initial goal was to start a capital campaign for a bunny and rabbit safe haven. The idea was to start an organic farm that saves bunnies and rabbits from cruel conditions using proceeds from an upcycled fashion company. Creating a sustainable business that also provided a place for animals to go after vivisection seemed like a good business plan.
The sanctuary animals - who are specifically bunnies and rabbits saved from vivisection - can live on an organic farm that also functions as spiritual center, a venue for weddings, and a location for Alice in Wonderland themed events. The cold weather in New England meant that we would also have native cottontails as our visitors! Donations are not yet tax deductible but we appreciate social media likes and shares. The current fundraising project is an adult video, 18+, that is an anthropomorphic take on the Greek Goddess, Narcissus, and about themes of human envy and natural selection. It is called "Dirty Greek." Find the model of the 2018 and 2019 fundraising campaigns, Eren Kavvas, on these social media links.
Pictues and updates on Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube with posts almost everyday. These social media links are a great timeline of my journey from the failed capital campaign to the current, anti-vivisection art projects.
The two art projects on this web site are in the form of film. At the bottom of this page is a short film about how rabbits are associated with creating medicine in the 21st century. It shows the juxtaposition of how we treat ourselves, as humans, and the species that we rely on for blood samples and raw flesh surfaces. Taking on themes such as brutality, rule-enforcement, and the laws surrounding medical testing, I think that the short video explains a lot about my position on vivisection. The second art project on this site is an 18+ series named "Dirty Greek" whiches references the Greek Goddess Narcissus, but in the anthropomorphic form of a human-animal. The philosophical perspective is one of lust for Narcissus' contentment with her banality and medical man's search for psychadelic enlightment through drugs. Creating Narcissus in the form of a human-cottontail hybrid, seemed only perfect using my own naked body, which I personally believe was used in medical testing during my probation in 2018. I was Section 12ed multiple times, in my opinion, to garner blood samples to increase the data on schizophrenic people who smoke marijuana. I also decided to use myself as the form in the film because it helped bolster my self-esteem and deepened my connection with the animal realm. It was empowering to play an anachronism (the Greek Goddess Narcissus) as well as take on an anthropomorphic shape (that of a bunny). After the fashion capital campaign failed, it was liberating to create a piece of art that was free of clothing and reminded me that the people who punish animals for medicine's sake are usually the one's who idolize psychadelics, avant-garde art, and feel intellectual superiority about their eccentric tendencies. If you are interested in watching the film, titled "Dirty Greek," which has not rated but is certainly NC-17, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the password to open the 18+ link.
In 2018, we did an outreach event called the Animal Realm Holiday Event that I hosted in my front yard in Somerville, MA. There were upcycled games, free vegan BBQ, electronic music, and a posters about ending vivisection. See the posters here:
In 2018, Feministry Corp made clothing out of recycled and upcycled materials to sell, give away, and advocate in favor of harsher gas taxes. Photos of the creations, which were going to be sold to launch the capital campaign, can be found on the Fashion Project link on the top of this page's navigation bar. They were hand sewn and also included brand name second hand clothing from Victoria's Secret, Free People, Burberry, and Banana Republic. Quick link: for the section. Unfortunately, the capital campaign's first phase, which was supposed to raise awareness about my financial responsibility, creative skills, and fundraising abilities, was unsuccessful because I lost all the clothing in a forest. Like Alice who followed the white rabbit for too long, I was stuck in Wonderland with my clothing taking form and wandering off as the White Knight and the Red Queen argued pervasively in my head. It seemed that I was too late to overcome the proportion of what I wanted to accomplish versus what was permitable given my very small size. Regardless, the model, writer, and producer of "Dirty Greek," Eren Kavvas (me), is still hoping to use social entreprenurship to end animal cruelity. She is now working on creating a rabbit-themed video game to sell as a start to another capital campaign. Having a space for the rabbit safe-haven is an ideal solution. Furthermore, a video game that can be shown at gaming conferences and fairs would be a good way to advocate against vivisection and recruit volunteers. I think it will be a big innovation in the nonprofit sector because it combines technology, environmental advocacy, female leadership, and entrepreneurship.
Research about international development posits that access to capital holds people from achieving financial goals regardless of their educational background. Market failure is the one of the reason that individual's cannot access capital. Other than the monopoly on pharmaceuticals and negative externalities associated with police brutality while training their own animals, I think that asymetric information is also impacted by animal vivisection standards. Comparing rules that govern medical testing on animals and those that cover medical testing on humans are both shrouded by mystery in contexts where government is invovled. For example, with the threat of EEE, on what native species was there pre-existing research about how the chemical would impact the wildlife, like cottontails and white-tailed deer? Considering if spraying for a rare virus is this part of a chain events that obliderates a different species of insects, like bees, and could be harmful to native wildlife brings up questions about the following animal testing and vivisection that will likely be part of the final study's results. Feministry Corp started in October 2018 as a nonprofit to help bunnies and rabbits, to advertise the merits of organic farming, and to host events. Regardless of how many things the hegemony steals, we will continue to advocate against vivisection.
