In the beginning Goddess Theresa Lemieux made seven shoe laces of
rainbow shades and dangled them down upon the earth. Rapidly Siobhan
Roantree gathered up the laces, holding them tight to her bosom, as she sang
out praises. The sign had been given. Frances Foran was to be reborn on a tiny
island equipped only with a modem and a fax machine. Yukie Kurahashi and
Paula Wellings set about to prepare the island for her arrival. Paula wandered
the high cliffs ofthe island, lighting candles on the large rocks which boarded
thecl^rbluesea.Asduskeaxditselfupontheisland,Yukiesetsweetfragrant
orchid blossoms on the reddened shore. A shallow sky deepened to the depths
of a thick black violet. Tania Trepanier drew herself out of the swollen sea,
droplets of phosphorescence tricked up from her flesh and into the sky above.
Climbing to the top of the island, Sam Green stood in awe of the world about
her. Asa tender breeze tussled her shining hair, Sam drew in each breath of
the sweet air with an unfathomable joy. Paula Foran rose up beside Sam and
together they pondered the wonder of Frances' arrival. Peace filled them both
as they joined hands and descended from the mount to the awaiting congregation. Sabina Brenenstuhl, Mai Saegusa, and Ela3ine Griffith raised their
hands in welcome, and lead the two in the lip of the ocean, ellen pond walked
towards the group, her strong toes gripping the fertile soil ofthe island. With
uplifted voice, she sang the first few tentative notes alone. A forlorn cry joined
the song, as Zoi Beeman-Cole pulled her bow cross the instrument's strings.
Strength grew in the song as Sara Martin and Denise Tang lent their voices
to the tune. In the final moments ofthe melody Frances floated down from the
sky and in joining with the sisterhood intoned "Lucy in the sky with
diamonds."
Helen Willoughby-Price looked agitated. "Fuck this beatle shit!" she
said and ripped off her flowing robes. Beneath, Helen's lithe torso was wrapped
in a patented leather bodice. A tattooed serpent rose from her ankle to her hip.
Denise Woodley'seyesgrewwide. She turned and fell toher knees. Screaming
up into the heaven's, Denise exclaimed her desire to feast of this forbidden
fruit. Helen grinned, her tongue flickering. "Why not honey, here I am."
Movement. Women's movement. Womens movement. Shuddering in the
night air, all began to bellow a new tune. Across the seas and around the world
vibrated the words, "Taste my love". Frances had come.

(* editors: need headline; this one not sensitive to community standards)
The limits of free speech are determined
by what advertisers and administration are
willing to tolerate.
Ifour interests don't coincide._guess what
(silence)
The Ubyssey discovered the boundaries
of "community'' tolerance about a week ago
when it came to our attention that the university had launched an ad boycott against our
publication, apparently because of the content of the February 12 issue.
UBC Housing and Conferences director
Mary Risebrough sent a letter to the AMS
executive and our advertisers complaining
that the issue "did not contribute to the campus Leadership's end to promote an atmosphere that assists relationships between men
and women to be positive, respectful and
non-violent."
Cited among the offensive material is
The Corruption Test, which was reprinted in
many other student newspapers through the
Canadian University Press syndicate. It seems
there is a schism in "community standards": if
we printed things acceptable in many other
parts of Canada, the "community" deciding
what we can print—the university, the advertisers—is really the radical fringe interest
group.
Do you want to know what is obscene?
The university using its power to stifle the
voices of students because our ideas conflict
with their agenda.
The Ubyssey sex issue produced huge
debate about issues such as pornography,
sex, power and consent. Our objective with
the sex issue was to encourage you to THINK
about where your boundaries are around sex
and power. You had to locate yourself either
within the essentialist dogma of liberal institutional "feminism" or leave that stagnant
festering pond filled with Mary, Marsha, Andrea, Catherine and a token Brian (nice rib
bon Bri, did your wife bleach it for you?).
This would not have happened had
The Ubyssey produced a "nice" paper, an
innocuous paper—maybe about gay oppression by the Canadian legal system.
The sex issue was an attempt at producing queer activist material about sex
and power and consent. This material was
certainly challenging; it asked you to communicate, to reconsider "traditional mores," to explore concepts and thoughts
which you might find foreign. It was this
that many non-queer or so-called "apolitical" communities on campus have interpreted as offensive violence.
The university's initiation of an ad
boycott against the paper sen-ds a loud
message to us and to everyone trying to
expand the debate around sex and power.
It says, "Shut up." !
It also says that the content of this and -
other publications will be ultimately decided by the advertisers and administation,
not by the people who work on the paper.
Full stop.
So we will become daddy's nice girls.
We will talk about make-overs, run stories
on spring fashion colours and wear dresses.
(Oh, oops, only the women, of course. We
would never want to suggest that gender
roles could do with a bit of play or
genderfucking, so of course only the girls
will wear dresses; boys must wear suits.)
Today's issue was to be the women's
issue. Many women spent their time writing
articles for it instead of studying for exams
or writing term papers. Some ofiwhat they
wrote may have been thought provoking,
even controversial. But never fear! In the
name of holy Fiscal Responsibility we have
held women's stories and reduced to eight
pages.
The State is safe today!!

own comic book and is getting together a full-length CD.

-The Ubyssey/7 Ice hockey: women break into centre ice
by Siobhan Rosntre*
Professional sports Is a world
where men are men and no one
else matters.
Ice hockey embodies all that
is masculine and virile in this
world. Always has, always will—
Just ask Don Cherry.
Much to Grapes' chagrin,
however, the National Hockey
League has decided to make
hockey a klndler, gentler game.
Perhaps this created a conducive
climate for Manon Rheaume to
be offered a tryout with the Tampa
Bay Lightning.
Columnists proclaimed it the
dawning of a new, more tolerant,
age in professional sports. Critics complained of tokenism and
exploitation.
Whether you're more interested in Rheaume's quick glove
hand or her photogenic looks,
the fact remains she is not the
first woman to play a "man's
game," nor will she be the last
Here at UBC, Bofmte-Lyim
Holter is the starting □etmtader
for the MBA Division tt Men's
Team in the Todd Ice Hockey
League. A Saskatchewan native,
Holter has played mostly for
men's teams, including a tryout
with the University of Regina
Cougars.
Although she was the last
goalie to be cut from the team,
Holter had to ask for permission
Just to try out, something which
wasn't required from her male
counterparts.
Hie big concern from the
coaches point of view was injury.
Holter said, "It's not been the
players who don't think I can do
it; the coaches are th&_most
skeptic."
As for her current teammates on the MBA team, Holter
describes them as being "fabulously supportive ... it's a non-
gender thing. You're Just a target. No one can tell anything
with the mask on?*  «-*•"
Holter also spent time with
the women's national team. Since
the IOC haa granted fuB medal
status to -women's toe hockey,
Bolter's goal this summer is to
eamaspot at the national team's
tatysota this September in Ottawa.
this will mean competing
for a spot against Rheaume,
something which Holter has
mixed feelings about. Pros have
more advantages than amateurs,
she said, so the Olympics should
be left to amateurs. On competing with Rheaume, Holter said,
"it would be exciting to play in
the same rink as Manon. To sit
down and talk to her would be
exciting."
Women's sport traditionally
has had problems being taken
seriously. Somehow watching
men. getting sweaty chasing a
little rubber disk around a sheet
of ice is much more appealing
than watching women do the
same thing.
Critics are quick to point out
that a new franchise such as
Tampa would need a gimmick to
get peopleito watch a game as
foreign as ice hockey. Rumours
of a call-up for Rheaume after
the lightning is eliminated from
the playoffs add credence to the
belief that Phil Esposfto needs a
hook, such as a token female, to
attract fan attention.
Although Rheaume broke
some banters simply by playing
in an NHL exhfcttiQn game, the

footsteps. She is third in a three

situation since the third goalie
rarely dresses for games, never
mind starting them.
Holter hopes an Olympic
program will raise the profile of
women's hockey, so that parents Will be more willing to put
theirdaughters in the sport, but
believes "women have to do it
themselves. Tliey have to get out
and play the sports."
Rheaume may one day play
in a regular season game, but it
will be much longer before old
attitudes are softened and
women are accepted as athletes
in their own right, not simply as
tokens and tools for marketing
by the old boys' network.
