sex education blogs (which are probably followed by a lot of teenage girls who don’t get a decent sex education in school), reblogging things about how to “safely” be beaten up and strangled by your partner. how to act out a sexy…

I make no apologies for my views, I don’t expect everyone to see it my way, it took a long time and significant personal reflection to get me where I am today ideologically. Just like with all radicalization, it starts small, and the cracks widen until you really start seeing the roots of women’s oppression, even within you, even within my own sexuality, the most private and intimate aspect of ourselves, it can take a while to work it all out, I’m still weeding out so much crap that’s knocking around in there, I am not perfect. But this blog is my little corner of the interwebs and I reserve the right to rant and pontificate and foam at the mouth here in my own little Matriarchal safe space, and I’m not always able to make sure I include caveats to protect the innocent. I welcome discourse and I don’t want to be inconsiderate but by my very nature I am going to rattle some folks and that is a risk you take in following me.
