SEXUAL HARASSMENT
Just because a woman’s yoni is wet doesn’t mean she wants it.
Just because a woman’s nipples are hard doesn’t mean she wants it.
Just because a woman orgasms doesn’t mean she wants it.
Just because a woman moans when you touch her intimately doesn’t mean she wants it.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just because a man’s phallus is erect doesn’t mean he wants it.
Just because a man’s nipples are hard doesn’t mean he wants it.
Just because a man ejaculates doesn’t mean he wants it.
Just because a man moans when you touch him intimately doesn’t mean he wants it. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Just because you are in a relationship with someone doesn’t mean they want it.
The absence of “no” is not necessarily the presence of “yes”.

We are sexual creatures. Our bodies are designed to be aroused by certain sensations and act accordingly so that eggs can be fertilized by sperm. In earlier times, the main purpose of sexual intercourse was to procreate, so men and women would seek sexual partners based upon social ranking, financial status, whether or not the individual has a disease or impairment that may get passed down to offspring, and other factors.
However, as the years have progressed and we have acquired more sexual freedom and curiosity, we began choosing significant others by looking for different characteristics. Some people still only want to have sex in order to become pregnant, while others also enjoy it as a means of exploring their pleasure thresholds. Both walks of people most likely seek romantic partners they can be vulnerable and comfortable with.
This expression of comfort and consent has to be present PRIOR TO EVERY TIME YOU HAVE SEX, even if you are in an ongoing relationship with the other person. Perhaps they don’t want sex right now. Why, then, you ask, do they? (Continued below)

#storyofmylife taking myself into new experiences, relationships, friendships, jobs, hobbies, paradigms, perspectives, and places...and pursuing them without reservation or no matter how much struggle there seems to be has taught me so much about patience and love and grown me into someone who I am slowly recognizing...as moi.
I am so grateful for our new community @movementsanctuary here in @keepstpetelocal - this weekend of #acroyoga #acrobatics #cheerleading stuff #circusarts #therapeutics #Thaimassage was just what I needed.

I am thankful for all of you out there that I know and strangers I have yet to know and be amazed by.

TW: rape

Almost two years ago I was raped by a fellow student, Thomas Hiura, at my college, Carleton College. Last term I finally felt mentally stable enough to report him and seek aid from my school's administration to make campus safe again and protect me and other students from further harm and trauma. This past week the administration finally gave their final verdict: they recognize that I was incapacitated and therefore incapable of consenting, as well as that I did not consent, but that there was not enough evidence to suggest whether or not Thomas knew I was incapacitated. In other words, my school recognizes that I was raped but because my rapist claims he didn't know he was raping me, they didn't want to hold him, or themselves, responsible. Powerful and wealthy institutions such as Carleton College care more about their reputations and money than they do about the safety and health of their students. They use Title IX to protect themselves by avoiding responsibility and pacifying survivors rather than to do something and end campus rape. This is unacceptable and I urge you, if you've ever experienced sexual assault, to make your voice and your experience heard. Because, yeah, it's hard for us now. But after enough of us are heard, after more assaults are reported, survivors will start being taken seriously, and one day we'll have protected some other individual from harm and trauma. If you want to talk or join in on the movement, please DM me. Thank you for hearing my story.

Side note: I love this piece so much (if anyone knows the artist, please let me know so I can give them credit). #sexualassault #survivor #rapesurvivor #rapeculture #endcampusrape #holdinsitutionsaccountable #youdeservetobeheard #yourexperienceisvalid #selfcare #selfhealing #healing #ptsd #sexualassaultawareness #carletoncollege #cleryact #titleix #mybodymyrules #respectmybody #respectmyexistence #fuckoff #fuckyou

Hey everyone, so it's national coming out day and I just wanted to remind people that you're completely safe with me if you ever need to talk or need support, and that it's also OK to NOT come out. Don't ever let anyone pressure you into feeling like you have to if you don't want to or don't feel safe/secure. It's okay to come out later, it's okay to never come out. It's okay to experiment. It's okay to figure things out later. It's okay to not fit into or conform the master narrative/gender roles/stereotypes. It's okay to not be just like or live just like other LGBTQIA+ individuals who identify the same way as you. It's okay to not make the same choices as them. Just do you. We all have different stories and backgrounds. Your story is just as valid as anyone else's, so don't let anyone else tell you any different. To those who have come out: I want to add: Congratulations! I admire your courage and strength! I hope all is well! And to those who are planning on it, I send you love, support and good vibes 💕✨But don't rush it if you don't feel ready or safe ☺️ it's not a race or a rite of passage. Also just a reminder in case people didn't know or didn't see the announcement I made earlier this year but I'm a grey ace, grey aromantic trans DUDE even if I may be a pretty gender nonconforming. I prefer he pronouns. That's it. Happy #nationalcomingoutday ❤️💛💚💙💜💖💝💘💗💓💞💕💟🏳️‍🌈🌈✨👯👯‍♂️👭👫👬👩‍❤️‍👩💑👨‍❤️‍👨👨‍❤️‍💋‍👨💏👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩 #loveislove
Side note: Also sorry that I haven't had any new content 😅, I'm working on stuff though and should have some stuff up by Halloween! 💪😤💯😎 Thanks for sticking around guys! And thanks and welcome to any newcomers! I really appreciate you all! Cosplay really is so important to me because it's basically the only place where I can really be my little gay boi self without anyone judging me or questioning it. I've felt so welcomed by the community... it's just been an amazing experience and I'm so grateful ☺️❤️💕✨
