I want nothing to do with a sex positivity movement that enshrines the kind of kyriachal ideals that already permeate our society.
If your sex positivity does not include honoring muslim women who choose the wear a head covering it is bullshit.
The institution of marriage is not under attack as a result of the President’s words. Marriage was under attack years ago by men who viewed women as property and children as trophies of sexual prowess. Marriage is under attack by low wages, high incarceration, unfair tax policy, unemployment, and lack of education. Marriage is under attack by clergy who proclaim monogamy yet think nothing of stepping outside the bonds of marriage to have multiple affairs with “preaching groupies.
Nobody ever says:
- homophobia will go away if we ignore it.
- terrorists will go away if we ignore them.
- homelessness will end if we stop talking about it.
- infant mortality will end if we stop acknowledging it.
- AIDS will go away if we stop focusing on AIDS so much.
Everybody knows that those notions are ridiculous. Why then do people insist on thinking that racism, which is the tragedy above all tragedies, will disappear if we stop talking about it?
and don’t forget about michele bachmann’s soul. i’m not sure she has one of those.
REWRITE: Never assume that someone considers fat an insult. Fat is a value-neutral word that is descriptive just like thin or skinny. It is not bad. It is not wrong. It does not mean unhealthy. It does not mean lazy. It means fat. It’s just a body type. It’s not offensive. It’s not negative. It is a word describing someone or something that is fat. We will never get past body shaming if we keep pretending like we can’t use the word fat. We can’t act like it’s some dirty word that must be whispered under our breath or some highly offensive insult reserved for people we truly hate. It is neither. It is not greater than or less than the word thin. I am fat. Lots of people are fat. Fat. Fat. Fat. Fat. Fat. Fat. Fat. It’s just a word.
once i thought i found love: swankemeyer: I married a Nice Man, not a “Nice Guy.”missworded: Nice...
Nice Man - makes dinner because he’s an adult and the adults in the household do chores because food is necessary for not dying.
“Nice Guy” - makes dinner because he wants you to fuck him.
Nice Man - puts you…
