#rapeculture

MOST RECENT

This week has left me feeling very triggered. The only way I can see to process this is by writing about it. So here's another, more poetic piece about Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing. Please give feedback! Structural, grammar, content, I'm not only looking to help myself out by writing this. I'm looking to become a better writer. Link in bio. #metoo #rapeculture #dobetter #stopkavanaugh #christineblaseyford

What does it do to our psyches when misogynistic messages are openly showcased in our public spaces? It made me so sad and angry to see this front cover - normalising entitlement to trespass beyond the boundaries of privacy that a woman defines for herself. It’s saying that all areas of the female body are public space. And that the treatment of them as such can be celebrated as front page news for all ages, everyone to see.
.
I made this performance I called Wonderland in 2012, to use my body and action to speak about subject/object and the boundaries between public/private. It was also a denial of the attempted theft of any self reverence and respect from the collective female body via this media transgression.
.
Obviously it’s not always possible to reframe disturbing material like this in a performance piece with audience/art space/photographer etc. But when I see other front pages from our misogynistic media that are upsetting I’ll often just turn the whole stack of those newspapers around. And even though that feels like a small action it’s not.

“It’s my body
It’s my right
No means no
Now get the f*%! out of my sight”

#slutwalk #womensrights #nomeansno #rapeculture

With @oliveyouowl and @sharkbait_testa

We are not a mistake
We are exactly who we're supposed to be
And we are not this way because We "haven't had the right D" 👎
No you cannot "cure me ..."
Because a lesbian doesn't open up her legs
Refuses to allow a man in between
She doesn't make herself available and the word NO does not mean "convince me..." 👎
A man does not have the right to take her for free
Because trust and believe
Get this shit through your heads
You do not have a magic D 👎
You're not teaching "a lesson"
You will not change a thing
Men...
Imagine your daughters being gang raped because the lack of equality
And women fighting back forgetting the system holds superiority
Rape culture
That's our reality
Instead of spreading love
It's all hate and animosity
Demanding sex from women because
You feel their sexuality
Is demeaning to your masculinity
Honestly you are the ones whom need the cure
We are exactly who we’re supposed to be
We are not an error
We cannot be fixed
Trust me we're not fucking sick
We simply prefer Pussy instead of dick
Get over it 💯

It still blows my mind that some people’s first reaction to a woman coming forward about sexual assault is to call her a liar. (Look at our other post on this for stats) -k #stopkavanaugh #brettkavanaugh #sexualassault #rapeculture

Does a #rapeculture exist in western #society ?

The great wealth gap. Did you know that when each great civilization collapsed, a precursor was too large a gap between the wealth and the poverty stricken (and even “middle class”). Interesting fact going into the next few years. - S
