Equality VS Equity

We watched an interesting talk by a transwoman on her journey, and she mentioned equality VS equity. Curious, I looked up a few articles on the subject. I'd welcome all ya'all's thoughts. Here are some interesting quotes: https://everydayfeminism.com/2014/09/equality-is-not-enough/ Equity is giving ...

Re: What have you lost?

A bunch of really important books that I loved. One of the benefits of being an adult is finding them online and buying them just to have and read and gloat over. Hm, maybe I'm a dragon and this is my hoard? Also, have lost most of my self-consciousness. I'm a loud fat old disgusting woman who's her...

Re: What was your longest vacation?

Inbetween jobs, took a driving vacation to visit friends and family. If we could survive a month on the road together, said good things about our eventual marriage. Yep... worked out.

The friendships? Not so much. Glad we figured that out, too.

Re: Interesting roundup of the "red pill" manosphere

You moved very quickly between two sets of data: 67% of mass murders being done by young white males, and the US population of young white males. The latter measure is so different because you add gender: the vast majority of mass shooters are male. So you went from a measure that didn't count gend...

Re: Picking up my cat's ashes from the vet on Tuesday

I just went through kind of the same thing. It's awful, I'm sorry.

You may find that seeing other cats who desperately want a home hurts twice, both wanting to help them and in that they remind you of your cat. Be gentle with yourself, you deserve time to heal.

Re: The female price of male pleasure

I don't really see the point of comparing which sex has the best pleasure or the worst sexual experience at the expense of the other sex. I don't think this is the point. When women aren't aware of what "good" sex is -- outside of just "not too painful" -- then we literally get women who don't know...

Re: The female price of male pleasure

I see these two explanations as being compatible. Self-esteem for men often manifests in overinvesting in a penis or phallus; any criticism of performance is taken as a personal attack on their ability to penis well. That extends then into a social rule, where other men who admit not always bringin...

I just got my dogs to stay behind my heels at all times during walks (except when SQUIRREL AAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!). That's pretty rad.

Re: The female price of male pleasure

- Men's self esteem being tied up in being good at sex. Men seem to take criticism in the bedroom pretty hard. Masculinity is tied up in this weird relationship with sex where all men need to automatically be fantastic at sex but totally chill about it. I beg to differ. Men seem to need to be great...

I tend to not even think of non-consensual sexual contact as sex, maybe out of some sort of self preservation.
Non-consensual sexual contact is assault. Not classifying it as sex is correct, not a result of self preservation. You're entirely right. Assault is not sex.
