this one time at work, this queer girl and i were talking about queer theory and labels and i said “i like boxes, but mine are always open” and then we kept talking and right at the end of the conversation she was like
“well, at least your box is always open… i mean, the box… that you were… that you were talking about”
and then as i was walking away i heard her be like “oh god that was so inappropriate”
When I worked as a waitress, I nearly made one of our trainers die laughing. A customer asked for a to-go box, and our trainer said to the crew, “Can someone get this lady a box?” I pointed to myself and replied deadpan, “Can someone get this lady a box?”
I don’t want them teaching it’s ok to be gay in school. I mean, kids aren’t ready to hear about that sort of thing. They can learn about sexual perversion when they get older and leave my house and/or by discovering my vast collection of porn that’s contradictory to my stated beliefs.
So I’m trying to put together a publication on radical perspectives on sex/porn/sex work/kink that goes beyond the basic sex-posi feel-goodness, isn’t just a glossary, examines things from a variety of radical angles.
E.g., i’m co-writing a piece on the place of porn & kink “before and after the rev” - what is problematic about porn & kink, what is functional-in-current-social-conditions about porn & kink, and what aspects of porn & kink would if systems of power/oppression were minimal/nonexistent.
All sorts of printable media welcome.
I’m especially interested in featuring work by queers, people of color, trans* folk, and women.
