“If I wanna f**k a girl, a boy, a dog, that’s my business.”

michellerodriguez.JPGI know y’all love Michelle Rodriguez, because Girlfight was named over and over in our favorite feminist movies thread. And I thought she was great in her (all-too-brief) role on Lost. So I wasn’t surprised to read her awesome response to repeated prying questions from journalists about whether she’s secretly into girls.

She explains: “I picture [the journalists] turning into pigs, slime coming out the side of their mouth, and I picture them jerking off. I don’t answer those questions.
“I just keep it to myself and it’s nobody’s business. If I wanna f**k a girl, a boy, a dog, that’s my business. That’s why there’s bathroom doors.”
She adds: “What the majority of (people) want to know is what I’m doing with my vagina, and I think that that’s sick.
“What do you care who I’m dating? I can tell when somebody just wants to know about sex. And it makes me sick.”

She is rad.

    I don’t think being terrified that someone might know you’re queer qualifies as “rad.” It qualifies as closeted. There’s a difference.
    Her blog post here kind of sums that up: http://www.michelle-rodriguez.com/frommichelle_05_07.htm
    Moral of the story, you don’t get cool points for being “too cool” to openly date women.

    Umm Jabes…
    1) Are you yourself a sex worker?
    2) Are you aware of the horrible conditions under which many low-level prostitutes work? (e.g. just for one example, doctors in Utah where prostitution is legal, have found that many of the prostitutes show signs of trauma akin to someone who has been repeatedly raped…)
    3) What does that have to do with this thread?
    ————————–
    1) No I am not a sex worker. ARE YOU?
    2) Do you have a a link regarding the vaginal abuse of Utah prostitute?
    As far as danger to prostitutes is concerned I consider it akin to the danger involved during prohibition. When alcohol was made illegal, organized crime came in and that’s when you had tommy guns and killings, and gangs infiltrating into the mainstream through speak-easies etc.
    Prostitution is dangerous BECAUSE of it’s illegality. We’re NOT going to end it, so why don’t we REALLY help the prostitutes as they did in germany:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostitution_in_Germany
    by making it legal and CONTROLLING it.
    Even if you’re right about the sex workers in Utah regarding the raping or near-raping it’s probably because prostitution was ONLY made legal with no oversight. I imagine something equally bad would happen if pot were SIMPLY made legal with no controls (such as smoking and driving, or age restrictions, etc..) I myself believe pot should be decriminalized to the point of alcohol.
    3)No, I don’t consider it off-topic at all. The introductory text to this article was CELEBRATORY of Rodriquez’s declaration that her sexuality was HER business.
    So, I’m asking why feminists say that that ENDS (and a person’s sexuality becomes GOVERNMENT business) when money is involved? I don’t think it’s off-topic at all.
