    I’m dying to know what causes someone to search for “ballbusting” – what the hell are they hoping to find?

    My fear is that a search engine search of “underage sex” will bring people to this site.
    Being a ball buster is something to be proud of, and a lot of women would do well to seek advice on how to be a better ball-busters (in the figurative sense of the term).
    Endorsing or encouraging “underage sex” is not something anyone in their right mind would want to be associated with.

    Women who want to learn how to be more assertive.
    Or men that are looking for domineering women.
    Or job head hunters that want assertive women as part of the management team.
    Ballbuster is not a bad term, or label to have.

    What are the first three search terms that bring someone to feministing?
    Or how about the top 10?

    Like 3/4ths of Americans engage in underage sex. So you are essentially calling 3/4ths of Americans out of their mind, just fyi.

    I think ball-busting is more of a term for teasing someone. Although, uh, Wikipedia…says something different.

    The searching for ballbusting mostly gives you links to videos, most of which I would say are actually pretty funny.
    Now if you are unsatisfied with your first page of links and go to the second page you get this feministing article with the term ballbusting.

    “Like 3/4ths of Americans engage in underage sex.”
    And you don’t think that’s a bad thing?
    I think most Americans think that is a bad thing.
    You said you work in impoverished neighborhoods? I am sure in impoverished neighborhoods it’s 9/10th, and that not a good thing.

    I just had to search for “ballbusting” when I read this. You’re not on the first page with the Ballbusting Bi Babes, unfortunately, but you’re still kind of up there.
    Hey, maybe some of whoever-is-into-that will get their feminist education via that page!

    It’s also a fetish, so they’re probably searches intending to turn up porn.
    I imagine this site comes as quite a surprise.

    Cities are now part of the fashion parade. Fashionability is used by cities as a global positioning tool in their attempt to anchor or shift their identity.
    But being fashionable is almost by definition unsustainable and on its own is incapable of achieving long-term recognition. Fashion can take on a life of its own that can send cities on a trajectory on which they do not want to be. Avoiding this fate is therefore of paramount importance. A city’s resilience needs to reinforced and buttressed by ‘real’ economic drivers, such as what wealth it is creating, what it is producing, its research and development capacity, its generation of employment, and how open its investment environment is. Nevertheless, image and fashion is both an industry in its own right that may be significant for a city and also a means of putting the icing on the cake to reinforce its attractiveness to other investors in its industries, from car manufacturing to IT and finance. What cities look for is to lodge in assets that are difficult to dislodge, such as a stock exchange or major university. It is unlikely that the New York exchange will locate elsewhere or that Harvard will move from greater Boston. Having the right image strengthens the image of a city’s assets. It has a psychological effect on residents too.
