Today in my Comp. class we were discussing the “N” word, because it came up as the subject of an assigned essay. Of course ex-military, straight, white cis dude is like, “Everyone should be able to say it” to make it less powerful. I didn’t say anything at that point. Then he said that black people not letting white people say it were “equally as bad” as hate groups. That is when I spoke up. Every word that came out of his mouth was so typical, down to the “my best friend is actually black”. (Not even kidding)
Really, guy? Come on. It’s 2014, we live in Seattle, this info is widely avaliable. Why do we have to start the day schooling your ignorant ass? Ugh.

The most dangerous thing society teaches boys and men, especially white boys and men, is that their emotions are objective logic and reason and that anyone who disagrees is being irrational.

predators literally love sex positivity and are the main supporters of it i just cant stress this enough obviously it started out with good intentions but its such an easy thing for evil manipulative people to latch onto and have people think theyre doing things under the guise of sexual freedom

Sex positivity was supposed to be about individuals being sexual (or not) at their own comfort and desire levels without the interference of outside influence or opinion/judgement. What it has become is a way for sexual predators to coerce, or sometimes even force their own desires and sexuality onto others without concern for whether they are doing harm to those individuals. When (rarely) called-out on this harmful behavior, (that is essentially rape in many cases) these same predators then use “sex positivity” as a shield, telling their victims that only someone who isn’t “sex positive” would have issue with their (the predator’s) behavior. *Actually* being sex positive means not judging other adults capable of consent for their sexuality or asexuality that consists of consensual sex with other adults capable of consent. It does not entail doing sexual things you are at all uncomfortable doing for any reason. BOTTOM LINE: If someone makes you At All uncomfortable/does not respect your wishes in a sexual situation, and pulls out “sex positivity” if you speak up, Run. They are predators and they do not give a shit about you.
