    Hey author-of-that-awesome-thing-you-know-who-you-are

    I would like my fans to know that RUN is one of the best fics in the fandom, and that you need to read if you haven't already. I would like all my fans to notice that it is begging for a sex scene. Finally, I would like my fans to know that I know for a fact that its author's My Documents folder contains a word doc entitled HEAT with some words in it, a doc that has existed for quite some time.

    I would also like to formally apologize for the fact that although I have started writing again, the next thing I post will be a hilarious shitfic instead of whatever it is you're hoping for from me <_<

    Is anyone else endlessly amused by the Bad Dragon ads?

    I guess I can understand people wanting really expensive sex toys--you want a sex toy that's yours; something personal. I guess I can also understand wanting a sex toy that looks outlandish and/or looks like your fantasy. Just in case you want to stare at your sex toy all the time. Including while it's in use. Okay, maybe I don't understand wanting one that looks outlandish.

    I think my favorite part i sthat they all have names. I know a guy who named all his Dittos after different items in the Bad Dragon catalogue. Duke, Chance, Mary, Sparky, Dante.

This is fucking fascinating and I don't really know what to think about her argument, which means it is the best kind of argument.

I'm trying to give myself a little extra time to digest this. It's too easy to read her article and quietly nod along when of course the issues she's talking about are more nuanced than she makes them look with her point-blank assertion that being a pornstar is empowering because it's fun.

Try reading this: Filk Crit Hulk: We Need To Change How We Talk About Rape

You'll find it more palatable because you'll choke on it and be upset, but it's saying very much the same things. It just looks only at the parts that the Duke Pornstar article insists on not ONLY looking at. It's two sides of the same coin, in a very obvious way.

Another way to look at it is, the Hulk article shows the poisonousness of the culture, and the Duke article shows someone who at least clams to have happily stepped outside that poison. Heck, the only good sexual experiences I've had have been with women much like that. So long as the patriarchy doesn't hunt down and punish this woman for her 'sins', I buy it completely. I could cry that I don't get to be in her personal life, but that's another story. That's the sort of person I'd like to know (in all sorts of ways! :raritywink: )

It makes it damned awkward for me when I have to function not only as a male, but as one who is primarily stuck in rape culture and deemed grossly unfit because I fail at doing my share of rape. All I can do is sit there rejecting that whole scene and seeing signal flares shot over the wall, from women who cry out, I'm free and can make my own choices and own myself! These choices so rarely involve a reclusive serial novelist and inventor, for obvious practical reasons, but I can't honorably decide that the world owes me a mate just as I am, so I'm stuck cheerleading from behind enemy lines, collateral damage.

Emergency rations would be nice. Air-drops. I'll have Dashie begin some in March, as that is within my power to do for my compatriots. :rainbowwild:

The only thing she's maybe wrong about is the whole "I wouldn't want to work for someone who discriminates against sex workers" thing. I mean, it's a good viewpoint to have, but jobs don't grow on trees at the moment, so neither is it very prudent. c.c But if you're having any concerns about her general argument, Tac, it mirrors a lot of what I've been reading about feminism topics in general. She's entirely on the money, and it's nice to see her calling out anti-porn feminists as well.
