Amethyst Dreams

Hello there intrepid asker!  
This a personal blog containing reblogs of stuff I like (usually stuff of a nerdy persuasion), random thoughts on things and tidbits about my life.

I am for freedom and against being a dick. Feel free to disagree with me in a civilised way.

Occasionally this blog may be NSFW.

You can ask me anything you like. I really love making friends and getting to know people. But I do reserve the right to answer in an ambiguously humorous way. :)

    thewoofles asked: Don't worry about it. The main thing is you feel better!


    Answer:

    Hey BB! Thank you. :)

    That is indeed the important thing, and the rant helped too. I forget tumblr’s therapeutic properties sometimes!

    Artist Nathan Pyle's gif guide to NYC street etiquette is handy for any city. Take it to the streets!

    I WANT TO IMPLANT THIS IN THE BRAINS OF EVERY FUCKING NYC TOURIST AND NEWCOMER. 

    Also applies to London goddamnit! If you stop suddenly in the middle of the pavement to look around vacantly I will do the loudest tut as I trip over your flow-disrupting arse!

    Hi tumblr, come to have a small rant

    So, been a while since I made my own post. I’m sure this will happen more in the run up to Dragon Age: Inquisition because - squee!

    Anyway, the topic at hand. I’m not very up on trigger warnings any more so I guess warning for mental health issues and the family issues that entails under the cut.

    This is not a review of Captain America: Winter Soldier →

    inkytasty:

    Because you probably don’t need another one. Though I will say I enjoyed the film a lot, and Ed (Brubaker) was amazing! I waved at him and felt super proud.

    But this is not a review of that film.

    Before the film, as is customary, we watched trailers (Omg how good does guardians…

    I cannot add anything more to this. Sums up my own feelings and experience of watching Winter Soldier in the cinema perfectly.

    "

    What’s defined as ‘sex positive feminism’ tends to translate to: non-critical of the sex industry, BDSM, burlesque, and generally, anything that can be related to ‘sex’. ‘Non-judgement’ is the mantra espoused by so-called ‘sex-positive feminists’, which is troubling because it ends up framing critical thought and discourse as ‘judgement’ and therefore negative. Since I tend to see critical thinking as a good thing, the ‘don’t judge me’/’don’t say anything critical about sex because it’s sex and therefore anything goes’ thing doesn’t sit well with me.

    'Sex negative', on the other hand, tends to be ascribed to feminists who are critical of prostitution, pornography, strip clubs, burlesque, BDSM and, really, sex and sexuality as defined by patriarchy and men. The reason that feminists are critical of these things is because they want to work towards a real, liberated, feminist understanding of sex and sexuality, rather than one that sexualizes inequality, domination and subordination, is male-centered, and is harmful and exploitative of women. To me, that sounds far more 'sex positive' (from a feminist perspective, anyway), than blind support for anything sex-related, because sex.
