I have no regrets

Amina-Femen-Tunisia_470x30519 year old Tunisia Amina who bared her breasts against Islamism recently managed to tell a journalist that she has no regrets for her topless act.

Though she was meant to be back at school on Monday, she was not there and continues to be held by her family against her will and prevented from contacting friends and FEMEN.

In the last interview she gave before she was kidnapped, she says women in Tunisia are ready for change:

That women have reached the height of self-determination: we no longer obey any authority, neither family nor religious. We know what we want and we make our own decisions.

This is the wonderful woman we stand up for and with on 4 April, the International Day to Defend Amina.

Free Amina.

She represents me and us.

    Obsessive-compulsive disorder

    Obsessive-compulsive neurosis; OCD
    Obsessive-compulsive disorder is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated POSTS, thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviors that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions).

    Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety.

    CAUSES, INCIDENTS AND RISK FACTORS

    Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is more common than was once thought. Most people who develop it show symptoms by age 30 and above.

    There are several theories about the cause of OCD, but none have been confirmed. Some reports have linked OCD to head injury and infections. Several studies have shown that there are brain abnormalities in patients with OCD, but more research is needed.

    About 20% of people with OCD have tics, which suggests the condition may be related to Tourette syndrome.
