I'm David, and welcome to my blog! I'm a Psychology major at OCCC/The University of Oklahoma and I love to talk into microphones, or just talk in general, so feel free to message me anything for any reason!

I am by no means a therapist (yet!) but I play one on the Internet.

Make sure to check out my links!

A couple of things I thought I’d put out there:

  • I am not a slut. A person being naked is not a slut. A naked body is not inherently sexual. Stop slut-shaming.
  • I am not your babe. I am not your doll. I am not your honey. I am not your sweetie. I am not your anything. Do not call me any sort of pet name because I am not yours.
  • This body you see here? That’s mine. This blog you are following? That’s mine. I am not here for you; I am here for my enjoyment. My becoming somewhat popular was an absolute fluke where the planets all aligned and a unicorn rode a shooting star. Idk why it happened but it did and since then, a large amount of people have felt the need to try to manipulate me into doing something they want. I am not a toy for you. I am not an escape from your marriage. I am not going to have any kind of sexual relations with you. If you like how I look or you like my personality, thanks! But do not expect anything from me because you like what you see and do not beg or get angry that I will not obey you. I do not belong to you. I belong to myself. This will never change.

Amen

Word. Respect women’s freedom to do with their body as they please and remember that they do it for them and not for us, men.

YouTube comments aren’t “just the Internet.” They’re not the product of a group of otherwise nice guys who suddenly become evil when they wear a veil of anonymity. YouTube comments are actually a nightmarish glimpse into the sexist attitudes that define the fabric of our own existence in the “real world,” a world that, like YouTube, is owned and dominated by men. The most terrifying gift that the Internet has given us is that it’s shown us how men honestly perceive the world: as a place where women exist exclusively for their sexual pleasure.

In the wake of VidCon, and as more and more women start speaking up about the harassment they face online, it’s time to start realizing that our narrative of progress is deeply flawed. Things aren’t getting better for women on the Internet; they’re deteriorating and ignoring the problem amounts to being complicit in it.

That assumption has a terrible flip side: Girls of color are often viewed as always sexually available, simply because of their race. Just look at the specific stereotypes: Latina women are “spicy,” Middle Eastern and South Asian women are simultaneously “exotic” and “repressed,” Asian women are “submissive,” black women are “wild” or “animalistic”—it doesn’t matter what disgusting stereotype you choose, it boils down to the same thing: Women of color are assumed to be always available for sex….On top of all of this, it’s important to keep in mind one of the main reasons women of color are expected to be always sexually available—because in countries where they’ve been historically enslaved or colonized by white cultures, the white men in those cultures felt free to rape them with impunity. That women of color in colonized countries should have any say-so in what happens to their bodies, sexually or otherwise, is a pretty new idea in the grand scheme of things, and one that women of color have had to fight hard for, and still have to fight for today.

Things that lower abortion rates:

Things that do not lower abortion rates:

Friendly daily reminder that the entire pro-life movement is basically pointless and counterproductive

“GIVE IT SEVEN YEARS AND HE’LL BE GIVING YOU JUST THAT.”

I tried to scroll past this. I really did.

We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.
