Recently my grandmother found out I’m queer. Her response was to tell me that she disapproves of me living with my “friend” (i.e. my girlfriend) and that I should give up my vile queer ways and become a Christian (Lol). She even sent me a bible.  Here are its remains, which I made into black-out poetry.

Poem 1: Bisexual (from Leviticus 19:9)— “Have sexual relations with her.  Have sexual relations with him.  Have sexual relations with both a woman and a man.  Have sexual relations with yourself. Vomit on everyone who does not respect you.”

Poem 2: Fisting (from Judges 8:5)— “water/ lap the water/ drink/go down to drink/your hands/go down/I give into your hands/go down/encouraged/down/on the seashore/the whole hand/your hand/inside/I get to the edge/and shout/grasping/crying out/Beth/Beth/Beth/Beth/Beth/God/I came”

Poem 3: A Letter to the Exiles (from Jeremiah 28:13) — “Ze said: ‘Do not let lies name you, nor harm your heart. Gather. Raise the sword against them. They scorn and reproach, for they have not listened— again and again have not listened.’ “

Poem 4: Child (from Ezekiel 16:22) — “Your father and your mother rubbed salt in. No one looked on you with pity or had compassion enough for you, for on the day you were born you were despised. Live! Grow.  I looked at you and saw you were enough.”

Poem 5: Father (from Ezekiel 16:22) — “You never adored us. You became very angry. You took some out on us. Your sons and daughters were not enough? You slaughtered— in all your detestable practices— our youth.”

Poem 6: Misandry (from Acts 27:41) — “Dangerous men should be broken.”

I’ve encountered people constantly assuming sex is good and that having sex is just something you do in healthy relationships. This creates a situation where, hating sex is a character flaw caused by those terrible sex-negative tropes society presses on you, and obviously only Bad People don’t consent to sex.
That’s rape culture. This is what environments that assume sex is unambiguously a good thing do. Saying, “It’s consensual sex that’s good” doesn’t actually fix the problem. It just creates a situation where you must be consenting to sex, because if you aren’t, you’re not having enough sex and then you’re “sex-negative”.
See, it only fixes a problem where you’re like, “Well I don’t really want to do this right now”. It does not do anything at all to help people who find sex painful. It does nothing at all to help a person who doesn’t want sex, but thinks they do because it’s been so heavily normativized they have to have sex, and have to have it in this specific way. All the, “But make sure it’s consensual!” thing does is tells the person, “Well maybe if you don’t want sex this time it’s okay, but remember you still must be having it some of the time!”
See, to actually fight rape culture you need to say “Sex is always optional. You are never obligated to have sex.” You must always be concerned with consent, and that means you must accept that the answer may very well always be no, despite the fact there’s this belief sex is the greatest thing ever.
And if someone never wants sex, then sex can’t really be a good thing to them, because it’s always unwanted.

Sex Positivity is Rape Culture in Disguise (via youlittlearsonist)

Really like this. We need to find ways of transforming real sex positivity to promote choice in sex, not uncritically promote sex itself.

Porn's influence is real. Sex education is the answer

brooklynwaste:

theogpeepeehermandammit:

Women that actually like these things (I’m a huge fan of choking in the right way and other rough maybe even “debasing” type behavior) are not the problem…we are taught by this industry because we are not taught actual sex education, but yes…CONSENT is the key. You don’t assume it’s okay to do these things unless that desire is expressed or spoken about. Just because you likes sex doesn’t mean you are just some fuck doll that can be tossed about without any consideration for your needs or wants.

it’s so true! i can honestly say that i convinced myself to like a lot of acts during sex because of porn, and because my past partners wanted to do that, but it is not what i necessarily wanted. i learned to actually analyze what my likes and dislikes outside of porn were and it made it much easier for me to communicate my needs. i like sex but i also am a person, and just recognizing the behavior of guys because of porn when it comes to sex; ugh this shit is life changing.

Disability and Sexuality Resources

Super great list!

takebacksexuality:

I have been doing some research on sex and disability, and thought I would share some of the links I have found. This will be useful for me in the future as a resource, and hopefully to others too.


Disability and Sex General Links

TOO AMAZING FOR WORDS

Huge amazing list of links! Have not read all of them so don’t know if there might be some stuff that’s not so good in there, but reblogging because lots are likely to be useful for people who follow.

i know… i know… but this one is like seriously important.

So, TLC was on Arsenio Hall when they addressed rumors that they were HIV positive, stemming from their frequent wearing condoms and possibly T-Boz’s illness which was later revealed to be Sickle Cell.  Anyway, when they addressed the rumors, they made sure to make the point that demonizing someone for being HIV positive definitely not the thing to do.

Left Eye: “I think if we had AIDS, that would be all the more reason to listen to us.”

T-Boz: “Some people do get naive or mess up, but if we had messed up like that it’s nothing to look down on us for. You should look at it like a learning lesson.”

and then when Arsenio tried to make a joke about them wearing condoms on their clothes (after the discussion no less), they remained clear in that safe sex was no joke to them.

Chilli: “We throw them [condoms] out every night at the show”.

it starts at about 5:45, after a performance of one of my favorites “Hat 2 The Back”…. love that damn song… 

Hat to the back, i gotta keep my pants down real low
that’s the kind of girl I am.
Being that i am the kind of girl that i am, some people just don’t understand the things that i do….

So I’m not the only one still on my TLC kick. I’ve watched this interview a few times over the past week. 

Like I said, NOBODY did what TLC did, stop trying to compare other groups to them! STOP!!

Hat 2 the Back is also one of my faves. Bout to go listen to it now.
