I need feminism because tumblr - Page 259

Outlawing teens having sex would certainly give us a chance to turn a bunch of kids into sex offenders when they inevitably ignore the law. That's a plus, for sure.


It would be funny if people were still legally allowed to get married but not have sex.

It is only verbally consent.  The kiddos will just need to sign their names on a piece of paper.

It would never work. Remember when the Reverend Shaw overreacted and banned dancing? That didn't work either

We should treat children like action figures. They're most valuable when they're still in their original packaging. Keep them in a faux-womb until the age of 18 to protect them from the dangers of the world.

You were a much more benevolent god to your action figures than some of us were.

I used to enjoy throwing action figures into the street and watching them get run over.

We used to blow up GI Joes with M-80s. I suspect a lot of people did this.

I hope you guys got affirmative consent from your action figures before you did these things.

The only one who didn't verbally consent was Snake Eyes, because he has taken a vow of silence.

Fuck it, we blew him up anyway.

I kind of regret it now. A lot of the unfortunate souls who met their fate on the street were from this legendary toy set:

Silence = consent. Duh.

Yeah, you're going to need to retake your SJW training.

I read a lot of commentary written by lunatics and 98 per cent of it is just further trampling the well-worn path, such as The Guardian's new 'it-girl' Charlotte Proudman channeling Andrea Dworkin.

This piece amused me, so here are a few excerpts.

“I’m being kissed. There’s a boy, then another boy. I keep asking if I’m pretty. I keep saying yes.” But in the morning, she wrote, “I feel weird about what went down” and was unsure how to express her feelings of dissatisfaction and confusion over “such a fucked-up experience.”

Which means a vast expanse of bad sex — joyless, exploitative encounters that reflect a persistently sexist culture and can be hard to acknowledge without sounding prudish — has gone largely uninterrogated, leaving some young women wondering why they feel so fucked by fucking.

In this line of thinking, sex after yes, sex without violence or coercion, is good. Sex is feminist.

The hetero (and non-hetero, but, let’s face it, mostly hetero) sex on offer to young women is not of very high quality, for reasons having to do with youthful ineptitude and tenderness of hearts, sure, but also the fact that the game remains rigged.

She winds up feeling bad for not having done the work of telling her partners how to make her feel good. “What I want is not for me to have that burden. I want one of my male partners, who are wonderful men who care about me, to have just once been like, ‘No, this is unacceptable to me. I’m not going to continue to have sex with you when you’re not getting off!’ And I can’t imagine that happening.”

“But I don’t want us to ever lose sight of the fact that consent is not the goal . . . "

So... being mediocre at sex is now considered rape?

Yes, regret can retroactively remove consent.  Haven't you been keeping up on this thread?
