Someone choosing, of their own free will, to pose nude is supposed to bother me?

omg so my daughter poses nude on web sites and is bringing teh shame to my whole familee!1! omg porn is bad 4 wimminz right??

The only problem I have with the daughter’s decision is her signing that contract which allows the site owner to use her photos for whatever purpose. That sounds a little manipulative and dangerous. Other than that, if this were my child, I wouldn’t make a fuss if she were posing nude. I’d be more offended if my kid became a CEO. 😛





the internet is made of pr0n.

This is very, very strange. and potentially very, very bad. Not only is someone suspending pedophile communities (which I don’t care about, because ew child molesters), they’re suspending literary/slash/kink communities. And more and more are being suspended.

Please spread the word about this. This is incredibly weird.

Hey, I took a short break from blogging/commenting, but I’m back now, and I love love love this new blog:
http://sm-feminist.blogspot.com/

I’ll have more to talk about soon, including:
–the concept of violence in media as catharsis ( I was actually inspired by Trinity and her posts on BDSM and violence in entertainment)
–Women and immigration
–exceprts from one of bell hooks’ books: Killing Rage: Ending Racism

I’ve been really rushed/stressed out with AP exams, getting ready for prom, getting ready for finals, figuring summer plans…etc, etc, so that’s why I took a break. Plus I needed to put aside some spiritual time for myself. Now that I’m back in the saddle, I plan to post a lot more, especially since the summer is coming up and I’ll have TIMMMEEEE, PRECIOUS TIME!
