all i want to do lately is draw cute girls with guns
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.
If your sex positivity does not include fat people when society already desexualizes fat bodies it is bullshit.
If your sex positivity movement does not respect the choices of those who choose to sleep with one person as well as those who choose to sleep with more, it is bullshit.
If your sex positivity movement does not include respecting the bodies of trans people, especially trans women, it is bullshit.
If your sex positivity movement does not involve acknowledging asexual people and not immediately conflating it with ‘slut-shaming’, it is bullshit.
If your sex positivity has no interest in hearing the voices of WOC or acknowledging how the patriarchy affects them in a different way to white women, it is bullshit.
If your sex positivity is primarily focussed on uplifting white cis women, it is bullshit.
I am tired of the patriarchy masquerading as feminism. I am tired of a feminism that serves only those who need it least. I refuse to be told that I must admire the Laci Greens and Dan Savages of the world even though they work actively against me. I will not be told to be happy with these people, when they continue to insert themselves in positions of power and use these positions to make their voices louder than those they are privileged against. I am especially tired of being told I must forgive them, when they use their positions to further bigotry against those they are privileged against.
This is NOT a Laci Green positive blog. This is NOT going to be a blog that idolizes the Slut Marches and ignores the racism and the way the word ‘slut’ affects people other than white middle class women. This is NOT going to be a blog that believes in ‘forgive and forget’ when it comes to people misgendering trans women. This is NOT going to be a blog that honors the shady bullshit and cloak-and-dagger style activism of privileged people against their victims.
For my trans siblings, for the POC community, for the fat community, for the ace community, for anybody who is being underserved or actively discriminated against by the white, cis, middle class, pseudo-acedemic circle-jerk that is mainstream feminism, I will not allow the kind of thinly concealed bigotry masquerading as activism to go unchecked.

missed ya, windy kid.
"Working-class people care more about their friends, families and communities – they’re just fundamentally nicer… Feminists have long since pointed out that those on the bottom of any unequal social arrangement tend to think about, and therefore care about, those on top more than those on top think about, or care about, them. Women everywhere tend to think and know more about men’s lives than men do about women, just as black people know more about white people’s, employees about employers’, and the poor about the rich.
And humans being the empathetic creatures that they are, knowledge leads to compassion. The rich and powerful, meanwhile, can remain oblivious and uncaring, because they can afford to. Numerous psychological studies have recently confirmed this. Those born to working-class families invariably score far better at tests of gauging others’ feelings than scions of the rich, or professional classes. In a way it’s hardly surprising. After all, this is what being “powerful” is largely about: not having to pay a lot of attention to what those around one are thinking and feeling. The powerful employ others to do that for them.
And who do they employ? Mainly children of the working classes.”
No media about the fact that there’s a All Male, African American High school on the southside of chicago who year after year has a 100% graduating senior class who ALL get accepted to 4 year universities/colleges.
they just want to talk about how whether a person’s death on the southside is gang related or not.
This is ridiculously impressive.
