look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to
I left liberal feminism, because it doesn’t tell the “male gaze” to fuck off, it FUCKS it. I left liberal feminism, because it told me that I was only powerful if my power satisfied men’s needs, if my power meant being on my knees taking a “Money Shot” while a man, conditioned from the very system that oppresses me, jerks off to my subordination. I left liberal feminism, because it argues in a POST-patriarchal context, telling me that my sexuality is my own, while in fact, males will always own it as long as male dominance is a political, economic, social and cultural reality. Which it presently is.
sex negative for life.

I really honestly struggle to ‘get’ sex negativity. I imagine it’s probs because I don’t fully understand the issues on problems within the sex positivity movement. Anything that is outright described as sex *negative* makes me super squirmy uncomfortable.
…I was not myself for weeks yet nobody noticed.
