Men celebrated our sexual liberation — our willingness to freely give and enjoy blow jobs and group sex, our willingness to experiment with anal penetration — but ultimately many males revolted when we stated that our bodies were territories that they could not occupy at will. Men who were ready for female sexual liberation if it meant free pussy, no strings attached, were rarely ready for feminist female sexual agency. This agency gave us the right to say yes to sex, but it also empowered us to say no.

bell hooks in Communion: The Female Search for Love

The “Sexual Revolution” was for- and created by men. As aforementioned it’s purpose was to delude women into thinking that by becoming readily available fuck-toys for males was “liberating”. A woman’s sexually “liberated” identity depended on how eager she was/is to fuck males and fulfill whatever fantasy the guy(s) might have. But should a woman ever get “uppity” and foolishly assume that sexual liberation is also about being able to say “no” to men’s sexual demands and fucked up, misogynistic sexual fantasies— or just “no” to sex for her own reasons— then she’ll be forced to face the ugly reality that the “Sexual Revolution” and male liberal/leftist support for “female sexual empowerment” had NOTHING to do with women asserting their sexual/bodily autonomy and defying the Heteropatriarchy, but everything to do with acquiescing the male sexual entitlement complex.

Reblogging again for morning crowd. & bc of its eternal relevance to my pet project, consent in the club, male entitlement, and the construction of self policing as boring and shuffling it off as the woman/dancer’s/my responsibility to police/indulge instead

Sex critical feminism ftw

Yes for sex critical

(via thelipstickfeminist)

I still think this quote is so important because liberal feminism often emphasizes the fact that women can have sex without equally emphasizing on the fact that women do NOT have to have sex. That in fact sex has nothing to do with who you are as a woman and as a human being.

But this message that sex is the means to liberation supports patriarchy in a similar way to how forbidding women to be sexual does. And it’s disappointing how mainstream liberal feminism participates in this mis-truth at the expense of girls and women.

My favourite thing about our flat is that we have a door from the bedroom straight out into the garden. I’m laying on the bed with the door open and it’s really sunny and there’s a nice breeze blowing in :3

Things able-bodied people need to stop saying to the chronically ill.

diaryofaspoonie:

• “At least you’re not dying!”
• “You’re only disabled if you let yourself be.”
• “You need to tell yourself you’re going to get better, else you won’t.”
• “But you can’t be in pain ALL the time, don’t exaggerate.”
• “You don’t LOOK ill.”
• “There’s so many people worse off than you.”
• “I’m sure you don’t REALLY need help.”
• “Sometimes it’s easier to just give up.”
• “Stop being so negative.”

Please write to Debbie! If you’ve never written to a prisoner before now is the time to start. Here’s some advice on doing so from Brighton ABC: http://www.brightonabc.org.uk/writing.html

Bonding this little monkey with Wicket is proving more difficult than it was with Mei. Got to be patient though! #bunnies

Have you tried putting them both in the bath together? Like, not with water obviously, but sometimes confining them to a small space works better for some buns. If you put towels down in there and some greens then it can work! I did this with 2 of my buns who i had tried bonding for months, i’d do it for half and hour, then an hour and move upwards and pretty soon they where inseparable :)  

I was thinking of trying that actually as I’ve heard it suggested before. They have been nipping at each other’s fur a little bit but not full on fighting, and sometimes they’re sniffing each other nicely. I think I’ll try it tonight and see how they get on. I’m pretty confident they will settle their little argument soon!
