Just a taste from that poisoned apple.

Stop gendering the words Dom and sub when you are talking about D/s in general.

romantic-ds:

Stop automatically speaking of Doms as a he, and subs as a she. Don’t say “men” when you are talking about all Doms, or “women” when you are talking about all subs.

Not only does it dismiss other couples who are not male Dom/female sub, but it implies D/s is inherently related to gender, that people should have power over or submit to another based on how they were born. That’s sexist.

D/s is not about gender.

Jesus was a homeless Palestinian anarchist who held protests at oppressive temples, advocated for universal health care and redistribution of wealth, before being arrested for terrorism, tortured, and executed for crimes against the state, now go ahead and explain to me why he’d vote conservative. I’ll wait.

Anonymous asked: you know what i should have worded that ask better-- if you are anti pornography, why are you? and if you aren't anti pornography why are you? basically what are your views on pornography especially anti pornography and all that jazz? just curious because i can't make up my mind myself whether i should be against it or not because people make a lot of compelling arguments on why i should be but they also make a lot of compelling arguments on why i shouldn't

cutevictim:

I’m not anti-porn. I’m anti-porn industry. I don’t think there’s anything inherently wrong with porn and I certainly don’t think there’s anything inherently wrong with sex work or sex workers, but the industry as it exists is so poorly regulated, I can almost never tell when I’m watching people having sex, or watching someone getting raped. That’s one of the reasons I can’t get off to porn. It’s too fake and seedy for me. I only really like very amateur or independent porn where it’s easy to tell that both parties are interested, and that’s really, really hard to come by, so I just don’t bother looking. The porn industry is a rape industry that runs on exploiting women, enforcing male power fantasy, and normalizing rape fantasy without actually calling it rape fantasy. That’s bad and I think it’s a huge contributing factor to rape culture. But I feel that if sex work wasn’t so demonized and people weren’t so afraid of getting near the industry to implement stricter standards of conduct, provide better networks of support for workers, and more comprehensive regulations, it could be a lot better. At its core though, as it exists now, it’s an industry that’s run by men, for men, on the labour, rape, exploitation, and degradation of women. It’s also incredibly racist, transphobic, body-shaming, and enforces a host of other types of discrimination to profit off of. 

I don’t consider myself a feminist, I prefer to call myself a humanist or an egalitarian.

i want to create a tv show about a group of friends where they’re all queer except the one token cishet friend who’s only there to say stereotypical “straight” things for laughs like “macklemore got me into rap” and “my mom and i got into a fight because she wouldn’t buy me a fourth obey snapback”

Or we could just stop stereotyping people.

you’re cast

Anonymous asked: Maybe if I get skinnier he'll love me.

alonesomes:

Your body is not a house that you have to clean up before guests come. Your body is yours and yours alone. If he doesn’t love you, then he doesn’t love you. Your body is not the offering or the deal you make, okay? I know that feeling, that thought process. Maybe if I just lost the weight, I’d be lovable. Stop it in its tracks. You are the most important person in your life. Love yourself more than the idea of being good enough for someone else. You are a force of nature, okay? Be here. In your body. You’re allowed.

Stonewall was colored folks, poor folks, transsexuals, femmes, butches… a little bit of everybody. But the narrative that gets sold to people is that it was all these ‘A-Gay’ white normative people. That’s not who riots. Sorry.

Oppression is cooking being “women’s work,” while the overwhelming majority of top restaurant chefs are male.

Oppression is fashion being a “silly girl thing,” while the top earning designers and CEOs in fashion are male.

Oppression is reducing women to consumers profiting a male system, even in fields that we supposedly dominate.

this is so fucking important.
