Reblogging a post full of people harassing and degrading a sex worker because she's sharing her experiences and is against the sex industry? What kind of feminism is that?

socialworkgradstudents:

clarawebbwillcutoffyourhead, have you made a SWERF meme yet? Normally all my anons just end up as a brocial worker, but I was trying to figure out which part of this to turn into a Kool-Aid Man bursting through the wall meme, but I wasn’t sure if Kool-Aid Man shouting NOT ALL CARCERAL FEMINISTS would really communicate the issue fully.

I haven’t but I just found a meme undressedanthology (or a friend?) made last year!

Why Finnish babies sleep in cardboard boxes
For 75 years, Finland’s expectant mothers have been given a box by the state. It’s like a starter kit of clothes, sheets and toys that can even be used as a bed. And some say it helped Finland achieve one of the world’s lowest infant mortality rates.
It’s a tradition that dates back to the 1930s and it’s designed to give all children in Finland, no matter what background they’re from, an equal start in life.
The maternity package - a gift from the government - is available to all expectant mothers.
It contains bodysuits, a sleeping bag, outdoor gear, bathing products for the baby, as well as nappies, bedding and a small mattress.
With the mattress in the bottom, the box becomes a baby’s first bed. Many children, from all social backgrounds, have their first naps within the safety of the box’s four cardboard walls.
Mothers have a choice between taking the box, or a cash grant, currently set at 140 euros, but 95% opt for the box as it’s worth much more.
The tradition dates back to 1938. To begin with, the scheme was only available to families on low incomes, but that changed in 1949.

Socialism at work.

I would rather my tax money pay for this than drone missiles.

That is a really great idea!
But, that’s not why the US has such a high infant mortality rate.
The vast majority of the infant mortality in the US is due to premature births, and most of those are caused by a combination of poor prenatal care and minority stress.

Love without Sex

mild-madness:

I’m doing a Philosophy paper on Asexuality. Please reblog if you think Love without Sex is possible! I really need the data. Like if you think love has to have sex.

Abelard and Heloise.

Older couples who aren’t into drugs. 

Man I love tamora pierce but are you kidding, sex is what got them into the situation that made them immortally famous! I mean Abelard only had his DICK cut off after knocking Heloïse up and her letters even post separation after seventeen years or whatever are FULL of longing references:

In my case the pleasures of lovers that we shared have been too sweet—they can never displease me and can scarcely be banished from my thoughts. Wherever I turn they are always there before my eyes, bringing with them awakened longings and fantasies which will not even let me sleep. Even during the celebration of the mass, when our prayers should be purer, lewd visions of these pleasures take such a hold upon my unhappy soul that my thoughts are in their wantonness instead of prayers. I should be groaning over the sins I have committed, but I can only sigh for what I have lost. Everything we did and also the times and places are stamped on my heart along with your image, so that I live through it all again with you. Even in sleep I know no respite.

Heloïse, 2nd letter.

Abelard may have been castrated and desireless but Heloïse absolutely was not. She still loved him but sexual feelings were a huge part if her love.

She only contented herself with a platonic correspondence because that was all he would give her :(

"Women with spinal cord injuries report being denied birth control by their doctors in a manner that suggests their sexual lives are over. Elle Becker, a paraplegic, [reported]: ‘About four days after I broke my back I asked my surgeon, “I don’t have my birth control pills with me. Is there something we can do about that?” He said “Well, you don’t need those anymore,” and walked out of my room.’"

Charlotte is brilliant always.

Here is my other rule of thumb for sex work writing: If someone purports to be writing about sex work and there aren’t any gross bits, they aren’t writing about sex work. Even if they don’t have physical contact with their clients, there are gonna be gross bits. Like strippers? Strippers are plenty gross. The labia Olympics or queefing contests we used to have at jacks, the bending over to check for tp or demand that someone look to see if our tampon strings are showing? Or camgirls/peep girls who watch customers jack off?Or dommes and escorts who see the really gross shit, sometimes literally.It doesn’t have to be an adolescent boy gross out fest, there’re excellent ways to write about bodies without making it a hefty elbow to the ribs, “harr harr!” but that element is there and if you aren’t seeing the daily/shift-ly element of bodies, it’s not sex work writing. It’s a soft focus glamour shot which means someone’s either not looking hard enough or they don’t know what they’re talking about. Or they’re a bad writer. Boring! Accept no substitutions. Read indecent.

Portland strippers

In preparation for the legislation meeting in Wednesday there’s a presentation/training on the legal rights and status of dancers happening today at the sex worker support group. Shouldn’t take too long, there will be time after for support! Message me if you need to know the new location.
