ihaveabsolutelynoidea: here’s the thing about sex, sexualization, rape culture and the phrase “sex sells” sex does not sell. at all. the objectification of women’s bodies is not sex. focusing on breasts or gentials or ass in order to sell a product or an idea is not the same thing as sex….

I was just thinking about this today. They won’t admit to it, like this quotation suggestions, but in their opinions and actions it becomes clear they truly hate women. “No, I LOVE women!” they...

I have ideological differences with the international office, which are in the body outlined below. While I support the ethos of dance and protest I cannot work within the organisational expectations...

Not an early 90s movie hacker though!! LMAOOO
