I always thought that if someone were sex positive then it meant they supported people who chose to have sex/not have sex, and that they didn’t shame people for it. That was what I gathered from it.
Sex positivism has been criticized as white feminism by woc and acephobic by ace people, and problematic for many other reasons by many other women. It’s not just a single belief one person has. It’s a whole movement built around certain figures (such as Laci Green) and practices and slogans (such as “consent is sexy”). I don’t have the energy to go over it right now, but you can check my faq for more info although I feel like I’ve gone even more to the sex negative/anti-sex positive side than I was even then,
sometimes i see people who complain about “peak liberalism” reblogging stuff that is frankly…peak liberalism and i just shake my head
The question I’m asked most often as a defense attorney is whether I can tell if my clients are innocent or guilty.
I don’t care.
I really wish I could watch this but I only have internet where I live. Maybe it’ll be on Netflix next year. *crosses fingers*
If you have internet, then go here: http://abc.go.com/shows/how-to-get-away-with-murder/episode-guide/season-01/101-series-premiere-pilot
That’s where I first watched it.
Although I agree that we need to attend to the social, asserting a sharp divide between impairment and disability fails to recognize that both impairment and disability are social; simply trying to determine what constitutes impairment makes clear that impairment doesn’t exist apart from social meanings and understandings. Susan Wendell illustrates this problem when she queries how far one must be able to walk to be considered able-bodied; the answer to that question, she explains, has much to do with the economic and geographic context in which it is addressed. What we understand as impairing conditions—socially, physically, mentally, or otherwise—shifts across time and place, and presenting impairment as purely physical obscures such shifts. As feminist theorists have long noted, there is no mention of ‘the’ body that is not a further articulation of a very particular body.
Protesters are angry about these strange negotiations to release protesters. What kind of practice is this?
When police start using terrorist hijacker tactics… WTF
Wow. The DoJ needs to come in and start that whole fucking police force all over again, from the ground up.
If people who weren’t wearing uniforms were doing this it would be criminal. It should be criminal. When bank robbers do this, it’s still criminal. WHAT THE FUCK IS THE WHITE HOUSE DOING ABOUT THIS?
*swearing a blue streak*

Q:i use the label 'choice positive' rather than sex posi/sex negative. i think it reinforces the validity of choosing (for whatever reasons) not to have sex, and to define sex in ones own terms and avoids painting sex as inherently positive/negative
that sounds like another term for choice feminism and there’s lots of problems with choice feminism
being sex negative means all those things too. i think people just don’t know much about sex negative feminism and are afraid to use any label that frames sexuality as anything but wholly postive or to critique sexuality in our culture as it is right now
