    “Are you sure you are safe?” (Macho Free Zone Campaign poster–on R.)

    About a year ago, I bought an issue of  Feminist Review , entitled “Italian Feminisms.” It was a really great issue, but I read and forgot about it for a while. I found it again recently, and re-read a piece on Italian feminist organization/network,  Sexyshock. Sexyshock was born [...]

    Thumbnail For those who may not have read it, there is a piece going around that  The Huffington Post  published written by a young woman named, Taylor Cotter. The piece is aptly titled, “ A Struggle of Not Struggling “, and it has received a lot of criticism because it drips with privilege. When I first read it, I felt like [...]

    **Trigger warning** I live my life pretty soberly–no drinking, no drugging, etc. It has been difficult at times explaining this to people, or hanging out with people who do take part in this behavior. Tellings someone, “I don’t drink because I was raped by an ex who used alcohol as a way to weaken my defenses” [...]

    Hi Jenny, thanks for the comment.

    I live in a completely different state from my ex (as far as I know), so it wasn’t “his” truck.

    Sometime last week, I was walking with my boyfriend around town on a warm, sunny day. A large truck passed by us, and I glanced at it for a second, and turned back. I did a double-take, because I noticed that this truck happened to have my rapist’s last name on it. I was in [...]

    According to  Padma Lakshmi , “I don’t get up in the morning thinking, ‘I’m an Indian’ or ‘I’m a woman’ or ‘I’m a person of color’ or ‘I’m this or I’m that.’ I get up thinking, ‘Alright, what can I do to accomplish what I find interesting in the world?’  I never start from a place of my [...]

    @sex-toy-james, he was looking at porn during the relationship as well–the above was just the one time that he mentioned to me.

  • ladychrist commented on the blog post I dated a porn addict   3 years, 7 months ago · View

    @Matt, thanks for your comment. As I stated in my post, I understood that my feelings of him “cheating” on me is not “correct.” I said it was due to my being upset that he hadn’t told me sooner. I understand that porn is not cheating. I’m fine with my partner using porn during our [...]

  • ladychrist wrote a new blog post: I dated a porn addict   3 years, 7 months ago · View

    I dated a self-identified porn addict. After dating for a couple of months, he admitted to me that he was a recovering pornography addict. I was quite shocked, even though I didn’t know what being a pornography addict entailed. I felt nauseous, but I didn’t show this because my then boyfriend was extremely emotional when telling me. He [...]

  • ladychrist wrote a new blog post: The Politics of Curly Hair   4 years, 8 months ago · View

    I tend to only get my hair cut once a year, partly due to lack of funds and partly because I’m lazy. So, I made an appointment for my “yearly” cut a few days ago, and they got me in yesterday. I had been to this particular hair salon the year before, but saw a different [...]

  • ladychrist wrote a new blog post: Pitchfork is a total “Boy’s Club”   5 years, 3 months ago · View

    So, I went to Pitchfork Music Fest on Friday night. The bands who played were good, and I knew beforehand who they were, but I was quite disappointed by the lack of female-led groups. Even the bands on Saturday and Sunday are not female-led, or diverse in any way. I’m really kind of annoyed with this [...]
