what is kink-critical & can you tell me about your thoughts on not being sex-positive? not looking for a fight or being hostile!! face value questions. just not educated in or have an opinion on this topic & i like your logic and opinions about things.

vayena:

ok!!!! well as for being kink-critical i believe that our sexual preferences dont exist in a vacuum and they are influenced by the world around us. i dont believe that, for example, men with ‘male supremacist’ sexual fantasies, in which they treat women as useless or subhuman, can completely divorce their desire to enact that fantasy from their everyday lives. if i knew a guy who got off on that stuff, i would get him the heck out of my life, no matter how ‘progressive’ he was outside the bedroom.

sex-positivity has really warped a lot of girls’ minds, including my own. in theory, it’s supposed to make women not afraid to embrace their own sexuality in the face of stigma against that very thing, but it’s turned into a celebration of sex, all kinds of sex, no matter how healthy or consensual it is. you see prominent sex-positive personalities answering questions like ‘my boyfriend wants to do anal but i don’t, what should i do?’ with tips on how to have safe and comfortable anal. it pressures asexual, sex-repulsed, and people who are just not interested in sex into complying with the idea that it’s a universally good and healthy thing. this bell hooks quote really sums it up quite perfectly and i point to it whenever someone asks me about sex-positivity:

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.

Tina Fontaine, 15, was reported missing on Aug. 9. Her body was found in the Red River near the Alexander Docks at about 1:30 p.m., more than a week after she was reported missing. Fontaine, of Sagkeeng First Nation, had only been in Winnipeg for a month before her disappearance. “She’s a petite little thing — just turned 15, barely in the city for a little over a month,” O’Donovan said. “And she’s definitely been exploited and taken advantage of and murdered.” 

Fontaine was in the care of a Child and Family Services agency when she went missing, according to police. She had run away from her foster home before, including once in July of this year. Police said she was found wrapped in a bag, in “a condition she couldn’t have put herself in.”

“She’s a child. This is a child that has been murdered … Society should be horrified,” O’Donovan said. “That’s why we’re asking for people to come forward. And that’s why we’re asking for people to help us and to come forward with anything they know about this child.” Anyone with information can contact police at 204-986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-8477.

Neil DeGrasse Tyson Said What He Thinks About Race Now That He's Made It, And Almost Nobody Noticed   

lonelyanimeclub:

I am so upset right now. There should have been much more of an uproar about this whole situation. 

During this panel someone asked what the genetic reasons were as to why there aren’t more women in science and Neil DeGrasse Tyson swung a curve ball and did his best to swiftly redirect the question to be about what society does to prevent anyone except white males from entering the sciences, which is exactly what we should be questioning.

Why and how are we preventing pocs from entering the sciences? Why and how are we preventing women from entering the sciences? Why and how are we preventing any and all minority groups from entering and succeeding in science? How can we as a society fix it? What are some things, no matter how minor, I could do to help along this societal change?

These are the questions we need to be asking. And when we find the answers we need to be putting them into action.

Fuck Lawrence Summers and his misogynistic and harmful views on why there are less women in science. The fact that people are believing it and using it as a valid point sickens me.

THANK YOU NEIL. You continue to be a role model and inspiration for all. Thank you for redirecting the conversation to a very valid and important topic. Thank you for your hard work and your passion. I wish only happy things for you, your work, and your family. Please continue to educate and inspire children and adults alike.

Congrats Playboy… I hope you weren’t expecting any cookies for this, because you also publish cartoons that endorse and make light of rape, so…

This doesn’t even make us close to even.
