Those who do not move do not notice their chains.
I övrigt ber jag om ursäkt för att min blogg på senare tid efterliknat min facebook-feed så mycket. DOCK kommer det snart en dikt som heter "Another day with the male gaze". Annars sammanfattar mina senaste statusuppdateringar en hel del tankegångar jag haft på sistone:
Planning an article on sexual harassment/groping/touching up of "male-bodied" femme's with focus on queer and gay spaces. I'z sick'n'tired of this shit and of getting my anger out by yelling at and lecturing individual men, when this issue is in deep and dire need of a structural manifesto! FEMME RIOT!!!!!
The fight for revolution is always ongoing and must be open to every state of being, feeling and doing in the inner and outer worlds - all the darkness and all the light and all the shades of grey in between. Do not lock an emotion up. Do not fear facing the darkness in the world. You need to face it to fight it, but do not be consumed by it (cuz that leaves you only two alternatives - death or cynicism) - and at the same time don't be blind and only choose to see the light and selfishly bask in that priviledge. And remember that everything is not black or white (or even grey!!!), but let red - the color of flames, the color of our heart, our blood, our passion, our lips - in first.
Thrashing and parading around to Riot Grrrl wearing only underpants and stilettos and than pouring red wine over my whole body and than slamming my body down and winding it all around on the floor to spice girls=YES, YES, YES I would say it was a good night ♥
"Madonna does her yoga for the buffness, I do it so I can handle my crazies" - Courtney Love. And I second that, just did yoga in the bath-tub for an hour and feel calmer than I have since August. Will do this regularly, and the crazy I was last night was the free, ecstatic, productive, ready for revolution-kind not the dark kind that gets me into trouble and impressive lows of emotional distress. My self is recovered, not dissolved ♥ Now time for political documentaries! IT'S SATURDAY!!!!
Many good points in this article "How liberated are we?: Questioning Queer hook-up culture". This isn't about being sex-negative or saying that hooking up is bad - it's just criticizing certain structures regarding sexuality in queer circles - objectifying and/or de-humanizing people you hook up with etc.: "Many of the politics we spend so much of our time and effort trying to initiate in the world seem to vanish when it comes to sex. Hooking up in radical communities, I have found, is still run through with off-balance power dynamics, machismo and hierarchy."
De-humanizing as in even if the meeting is only for sex - there has to be consent about that that is all it's about AND you still have to be aware that the person you're having sex with is a whole human being. Otherwise we start mistreating each other in really un-radical ways. I'm totally not a saint here, I've experienced both sides of this type of behaviour plenty of times in the past but I don't want to be a part of it anymore.
