Bodies are inherently valid
It is complicated
I encourage my followers and anyone interested to visit this blog [“The Invisible Men”]. As is already indicated in the above screenshot, it offers the perspective of the Johns/”punters” who purchase the services of women to sexually perform for them. Usually the perspective that is brought to the forefront of discussions and viewpoints on sex work and the sex industry is that of the workers with typically positive experiences. The choice of women who are privileged enough to willingly, enthusiastically and consensually engage in the industry is paraded yet rarely, it seems, do people inquire about the mindset and motivations of the men who are active with these women. What is going on in HIS HEAD, what about HIS CHOICE?
I warn you in advance, this blog contains first person accounts of rapists and (IMO, unsurprisingly) raging, remorseless misogynists. Visit if you want to broaden you understanding of the dynamics in this industry in regards to the experiencing of male Johns and female workers. Visit if you want to broaden your understanding beyond just being exposed to a veil of glamor or positivity that keeps many people ignorant to how violent/abusive and yes, degrading it can be. - G.G
Unwed white girls who became pregnant in the postwar years were considered psychologically disturbed but treatable, whereas their black counterparts were presumed to be biologically hypersexual and deviant. Historian Rickie Solinger demonstrates that in the 1950s an unwed white girl who became pregnant could go to a maternity home before her pregnancy showed, deliver the baby and give it up for adoption, and return home to her community with no one the wiser. (White parents concocted stories of their daughters being given the opportunity to study for a semester with relatives.) She could then resume the role of the “nice” girl.
Unwed pregnant black girls, on the other hand, were barred from maternity homes; they were threatened with jail or termination of welfare; and they were accused of using their sexuality in order to be eligible for larger welfare checks. Politicians regarded unwed pregnant black girls as a societal problem, declaring—as they continue to declare today—that they did not want taxpayers to support black illegitimate babies, and sough to control black female sexuality through sterilization legislation

The Doctor takes this moment of recovery to grab Jenny, bend her over backwards and lock lips. He gets a great big slap from a very unhappy Jenny but appears in no way remorseful and it’s the grossest point in the episode. In an episode where the Doctor kisses no less than three women during fits of emotion, Jenny is the only one who he pins in a submissive position and then kisses on the lips. It would already be creepy enough if she weren’t A) married and B) uninterested in not only the Doctor but his entire gender. But the episode just moves on from its little “haha isn’t it funny/cute/just an example of his happy exuberance when the Doctor does a nonconsensual sexual thing to somebody” joke and moves on to the Doctor quick-firing dialogue about they’ve got to find Clara and stop Mrs. Gillyflower.
The Mary Sue recaps “The Crimson Horror” and plainly spells out something that’s been bothering many fans about the Doctor/Jenny kiss: it’s not really that they kissed, it’s that the Doctor pinned Jenny down submissively and forced a kiss on her. It was oddly reminiscent of another kiss that turned out to be assault:
before and after. from bland to fab. her grammy got her these little figurines. they dont come in brown or black versions and looking over at pink bitches all day fucks with my stomach given the whole reason is THEY DONT MAKE ANY THAT LOOK LIKE *US*. so i blackwashed them.
anyway. now they look like they belong in this house. :)
Tear gas stinging your eyes. Flashbangs overhead. Should you run?
When not to run
- People panicking means twisted ankles, falls, trampling over people. It can be “fucking dangerous”.
- Running in panic can send you, and others around you, into a trap.
- Running empowers the police with a prey/predator mentality.
- If you’ve taken the street, and you want to keep it, then be prepared to defend it.
- If you run, you leave behind your comrades that ARE willing to stand.
When to run
- If it’s a tactical retreat, made consciously and free of panic. Develop a strategy ahead of time to fall back on. Otherwise, you’re letting the police set the terms.
- If you’re past your comfort level. This will obviously be true for most people fleeing police, but remember that your comfort level isn’t necessarily a static thing - if you want to, change it.
- If your energy is gone. Understand your limits, and leave with the peace of mind of knowing you have reached yours for the day, and have accomplished what you can.
“Not running is hard. Really fucking hard. Most of us are totally guilty of it sometimes, even if just for a few seconds before our brains click and goe ‘hey, wait just one effing minute’. But working towards being able to overcome that fear is important.
This won’t be an overnight transition. It will take time and experience, but it will be worth it. I know, because I can imagine the day when we ALL don’t run, but instead hold our ground and face down the state. Together.”
i’ll save this. might need it someday..
this is more important than most of what i’ve ever posted.. probably.
Documentary: Europe’s New Refugees to Africa and South America
Floods of immigrants have always been a source of political tension in Europe, usually characterised y young African migrants deperately trying to get to Europe. Now, the European Union is facing up to an unusual new migration worry: migrants fleeing from Europe’s faltering economies to Africa and South America.
The economic boom is over is Europe and now failing European economies are all experiencing an unusual pattern of emigration.
In the Portuguese capital Lisbon, queues form outside African embassies as EU citizens try to acquire working visas. According to ex-pat Juliana Fleming, “I know many people who are trying to sell their homes in Portugal, to settle in Mozambique”. 300,000 have left Spain since the banking crisis in 2008. Chef Carlos Garcia couldn’t find work in Madrid, so instead went to look in Argentina. “You walk in the centre of Buenos Aires, and you feel like you are in Spain. I strongly recommend it to anyone who sees no future prospects”.
