The fluorescent insides of an opinionated mind

I am a blah blah blah, no. I am me and I do not like defining myself by labels. I agree with that they are important to identity with but I think it is absolute bullshit to use them to define you. You are you. These interests do not define me but gives you a little bit of insight into what makes my life that little bit sweeter: the 60s, intersectional feminism, vaginas, penises, full hairy sexy man legs, music, 20th century literature, vegetarianism, politics, anti-organised religion, musical instruments, antique furniture, lying by candlelight, fucking by candlelight, history, debates, pot, the Beatles, freak folk, trippy music late at night, floral. Lots of floral. I am brash and abrasive on a social level. Awkward on a first sight. Mushy on a personal level. I count myself as an Intersectional feminist, believe that feminism MUST be intersectional otherwise it's bullshit, and believe deeply in Queer Theory. Call me out if you wanna bro! Still learning about so much. I want to get my PhD in Gender Studies. Currently completing my Honours in Gender Studies and Politics. Feel free to ask anything or to start any debates about any topic.

7 Things I Wish Parents Would Stop Teaching Their Children:

goddess-river:

  1. That nudity is inherently sexual
  2. That people should be judged for their personal decisions
  3. That yelling solves problems
  4. That they are too young to be talking about the things they’re already starting to ask questions about
  5. That age correlates to importance
  6. That interacting with someone of the opposite sex is inherently romantic
  7. That the default for someone is straight and cisgender

The problem that needs to be fixed is not kick all the girls out of YA, it’s teach boys that stories featuring female protagonists or written by female authors also apply to them. Boys fall in love. Boys want to be important. Boys have hopes and fears and dreams and ambitions. What boys also have is a sexist society in which they are belittled for “liking girl stuff.” Male is neutral, female is specific.

I heard someone mention that Sarah Rees Brennan’s THE DEMON’S LEXICON would be great for boys, but they’d never read it with that cover. Friends, then the problem is NOT with the book. It’s with the society that’s raising that boy. It’s with the community who inculcated that boy with the idea that he can’t read a book with an attractive guy on the cover.

Here’s how we solve the OMG SO MANY GIRLS IN YA problem: quit treating women like secondary appendages. Quit treating women’s art like it’s a niche, novelty creation only for girls. Quit teaching boys to fear the feminine, quit insisting that it’s a hardship for men to have to relate to anything that doesn’t specifically cater to them.

Because if I can watch Raiders of the Lost Ark and want to grow up to be an archaeologist, there’s no reason at all that a boy shouldn’t be able to read THE DEMON’S LEXICON with its cover on. My friends, sexism doesn’t just hurt women, and our young men’s abysmal rate of attraction to literacy is the proof of it.

If you want to fix the male literary crisis, here’s your solution:

Become a feminist.

god-is-prochoice:

16-year-old boys talking shit about the pro-choice movement like they have any fucking right to in the first place.

In other news, water is wet.

God isn’t pro murder so therefore He isn’t pro choice. You’re argument is that since I’m 16, I have no clue what I’m talking about. Thats ridiculous, the Church has always been against abortion. You can’t decide what to accept in Christian doctrine and what to reject. Thats not Christianity, thats heresy. 

"The people of Samaria must bear their guilt, because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open. (Hosea 13:16)"


"Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey. (1 Samuel 15:3)"


"Happy is he who repays you for what you have done to us. He who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks. (Psalms 137:8-9)"


What about the passage in the bible that offers a recipe for induced abortion, to be done by a priest?


What about how if a pregnant woman is hurt, the person must only pay a fine for hurting the WOMAN, not the foetus.
-Ash

You can’t just take a few biblical quotes out of context. Many things in Scripture aren’t meant to be taken literally but are rather symbolism and allegory.

The Church has always been against abortion and always will be. You cannot reject clear Church dogma and consider yourself a Christian.

Every person is created in the image of God and is therefore precious. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that abortion is murder. Even if you’re not a Christian, I hope that at least as a decent human being, you wouldn’t kill anyone.

Or how about another crazy idea; abstain from sex until marriage! The teaching of the Church is that you should remain celibate until marriage. If you don’t go whoring around, then you don’t even have to worry about abortion in the first place.

You cannot be a Christian and think its totally cool with God that you slut around because its hard to be celibate. Christianity is hard. If it was easy, everyone would do it. Its a way of life and a commitment to Christ and His Church, not a liberal buffet table.

You’re 16. Stop worrying about other people’s sex lives so damn much.

- Well, I ain’t religious so Imma whore myself around so much. And use a fucktonne of contraception thanks. And abortion if said contraception fails.

tl;dr - I am getting laid and you obvs aren’t and sound kinda pissed about it because no one wants ur gross lil anti-choice penis around them.
