One of the hugest misconceptions about sex..

I love this video (and Laci Green)! It is informative, educational, and entertaining. Most people I know have the misconception that female-bodied people must “pop” their cherries. However, the hymen is NOT a thin layer of skin covering the vagina, as people think. The hymen simply stretches, it does not pop or break. Re-educate yourself with Laci Green! She makes videos about sex, sexuality, relationships, and more! I hope this was informative!

Control a woman remote

When I saw this, I was outraged. I don’t know if this is serious, or a joke, but either way I find it extremely sexist, misogynist, and offensive. It suggests that men should be able to control women, which is just straight up sexist. It reinforces the stereotype that women are in a bad mood when they are on their period. HELLO?! EVERYONE is in a bad mood sometimes, so whats with the “turn off” PMS button? I think that the worst are the buttons stop “whining, nagging, and moaning”. This also reinforces the stereotype that women are whiny and that we don’t have the right to assert ourselves. If we ever have a complaint, we are “whining”. I also hate the give me “beer, sex, food.” This doesn’t only make women look bad, but it makes men look bad to. It ALSO reinforces the belief that all men are sexist assholes who want control over a woman. Gender and heteronormative, much? This remote reinforces RAPE CULTURE by having the buttons “say yes, say no, give me sex.” It makes it seem as if women should adapt to mens needs when it comes to sexuality. We can make our OWN choices regarding our sexuality and our bodies. “Cook, clean, leave”. Gender roles? I think so. This whole thing is very stereotypical and sexist and i hate it!

Subliminal Messaging

What do you think? What subliminal messages have YOU noticed in the media? Comment below and let me know!

The Westboro Baptist Church

I have heard SO many things about this church, and I just read an article about it that shocked me. Rush Limbaugh, an American radio talk show host, political commentator, and an opinion leader for American conservatives (according to wikipedia), is a part of this church. During one of his programs, he said, ”

“If you wear a dress that is strapless with a brassiere that isn’t, you might be a slut,” 

“If you are an anchor bimbo for Fox News and your name is Kelly or Julie, you might be a slut.”

“If you think it’s OK to have sex with men outside the marriage bed, you might be a slut,” the commercial continues. “And if you fornicate your brains out and you think the government ought to pay to kill your baby, well, sounds like a slut to me — and God hates sluts.”

So, what ever happened to “God is love?”. I have a problem with the previous statements for various reasons. Here are some of them.

  • For one thing, I don’t believe sluts exists. I believe people can be sexually liberated. People can have  a lot of sex, or show a lot of skin, but thats their own choice, and they don’t deserve to be labeled a “slut” for it. People can do whatever they want.
  • People should be able to dress however they are comfortable without being put down for it. Dressing is a personal matter and it is no one elses buisness.
  • Sex is also a personal matter. Whats wrong with having sex outside of the marriage bed? Just do what makes you happy, jeez.
  • So, if you get an abortion your a slut? Umm, how does that even make sense? For one thing, every person should have the right to make the decision they want to, it is not “murder” and for another thing, how does getting pregnant and than not being able to keep the child make someone a slut? It can happen to anyone.

This isn’t the only thing about Westbouro Baptist Church, check out these videos!

“Sluts”

This is the quote of the day! It is by Elissa Sursara:

“If someone calls you a slut, there’s nothing you can say to refute the claim because it never had any cognitive content anyway. Even virginity is not a defense against alleged sluttiness. Virgins can be sluts if they dress the wrong way, walk the wrong way, or even instill the wrong thoughts in other people. Some people will convict you of sluttitude because your body is the wrong shape, or the right shape. What determines sluttiness? Is it number of partners, or the number of sex acts, or the kind of sex, or whether you enjoy it, or what other people infer about your self-esteem based on what they assume about your sex life? It’s all of the above, or none of the above. Either way, you lose. Maybe it has nothing to do with you at all. Maybe it’s because your accuser is racist or classist and your “sluttiness” is built into some stereotype that was clanking around in their head before they ever met you. If you try to argue that you’re not a slut, you’re implicitly buying into the idea that there are sluts out there. If there’s some criterion that will set you free, that standard will indict someone else—someone with a higher “number,” or shorter skirt, or a later curfew. So we get bogged down in slut/non-slut border skirmishes over a line nobody should have tried to draw in the first place, and we all lose. The only “refutation” is to laugh in your accuser’s face and get on with your life, however you choose to live it.”

I LOVE this quote. What do you think about it? Comment below and let me know! (:
