um, when people ask you not to use slurs, that doesn’t mean that they want LAWS against using those slurs and they want to put you in jail for being ANTI-PC or whatthefuckever, it’s more like “hey, could you not be a dick and not use words with violent histories that hurt people and reinforce intense societal prejudice?”
Them:I don't think kids should be exposed to gay relationships.
Them:It's introducing children to sexuality! They're too young for that!
You:So when a prince and princess kiss in a Disney movie, are they introduced to sexuality? When the prince and the princess get married and have a child, is that introducing your child to sexuality?
Them:NO! But if they see a man and a man, or a woman and a woman together... they're going to start asking questions! Like how a man and a man can... you know, do anything together.
You:You think the only thing people think when they see a gay couple is "I wonder how they have sex"? Furthermore, you think a CHILD is going to even know what that means? When the prince and the princess kiss, does your 4 year old daughter ask, "mommy, how do people have intercourse"? No. She just sees two people in love. If you remember when you were a kid, you probably didn't think about sex every time you saw two people happy together.
Them:But it'll bring up all kinds of questions, it'll confuse my child!
You:Then be a fucking parent and explain it to your child. The only question that might be brought up is "mom, why don't you want gay people to be happy?". And when you don't have a good answer for that question, you can look your child in the eye and say "It's because I'm a bigot".
Things that are communism: a classless, moneyless, stateless social order engineered by a civil overthrow by the proletariat of the bourgeoisie. Things that are not communism: the Supreme Court upholding the ACA.
This is the second post in my series on BDSM and feminism. My challenge to myself was to make a list of 50 reasons why the widespread appreciation of 50 Shades of Grey is not so ideal, despite the fact that I generally think women enjoying sexually explicit material is a good thing. I thought it would be difficult to think of all those things while pointing out new problems every time, not just giving examples. I was wrong. It was really easy.
Trigger warnings for discussions of BDSM, assault, child abuse, sexual abuse, rape, and stalking. Also, spoilers through 50 Shades of Grey and the sequels.
I feel like this can apply to anyone. Whether you’re saving your first time for marriage or you’re simply waiting til it’s right for you and your parter I don’t think sex means loss. I think the concept of “losing” a piece of you is harmful to peoples’ minds. Like you’re less of a person because of having sex? Anyways, sexual debut is kind of an awesome term.
