i think this is the only fandom in which a fix-it fic means murder & sex spree

Being sex-negative doesn’t mean that I fancy myself the chief inspector of the sex police, or that I am personally judging what you do in bed, or that I’m conservative, or that I’m engaging in repressive moralizing. It doesn’t mean that I hate sex workers, or that I want to ban sex work or porn (and, in general, I tend to leave those conversations to women who do sex work while I shut up and listen to what they have to say). It doesn’t mean that I hate sex or that I’m embarrassed by it.

What it does, in fact, mean is that the way you fuck is not “private,” apolitical, or outside the realm of critique. Sex does not happen in a vacuum immune to outside structural influences; in fact, it can (and does) replicate inescapable systems of power and dominance. Being sex-negative means acknowledging that sex, and kink, have nothing intrinsically “good” or “positive” about them (in direct contrast to sex-positive feminists, many of whom argue that sex is an inherent good and that less charitable opinions toward sex are the result of a poisonous, prudish society).

It means understanding that many women have neutral to negative experiences with sex, whether due to a lack of desire or sensitivity or past traumatic experiences or myriad other reasons, or may not wish to have sex at all, and that none of this makes them unhealthy, aberrant, or wrong.

-Jillian Horowitz, xoJane, Unpopular Opinion: I’m A Sex-Negative Feminist (via birdsy-purplefishes)

"…Arguments about how analyzing desires, kinks, and the material effects of sex in our society should be off-limits, or that sex is private and we "like what we like" and should leave it at that, are harmful, whether or not the participants are consenting."

I wouldn’t call myself sex-negative because that’s waaay too kneejerk for me, but I like a lot of what this article puts forward.

One of the major failings of mainstream feminism and the sex-positivity movement, to me, is the fear of analyzing and criticizing kink. Kinks don’t exist in a vacuum, you don’t just decide one day you’re into hardcore bondage… these desires are influenced by culture and experience etc, and what I see from many sex-positive people is a fear in engaging in these introspective dialogues, worrying that they are “kink shaming” or penalizing women specifically.

I don’t think discussions about how our culture and social structures at large influence sex and personal desire, done thoughtfully, shame anyone or place the onus squarely on women, as if Kink Is Their Fault or something. Our society is pretty much all about drilling ideas and imagery into our heads… of Course they will affect us, think of how successful the beauty and diet industry is, even though at this point we’re very good at dismantling the advertising.

Being sex-critical shouldn’t be about telling people they are WRONG for having these desires, but exploring WHY we have them, and!!!! WHAT can be done to improve the lives of people affected by industries surrounding these fantasies.

For example, survivors of rape, child sexual assault, and abuse; the industry surrounding the sexualization of these acts (be it pornography costume etc) DO effect survivors and DO effect our attitude towards these acts. I’m not saying these things are CAUSED by kink or the porn etc surrounding them, obviously it’s more complicated than that, but it is Undeniable that these images effect our culture, because People See Them and Consume Them and Internalize Them. There is no way I would believe someone if they tried to tell me the abundance of rape porn, or teen porn, or porn that depicts violence towards women doesn’t normalize these images to the people who run across or uncritically consume them, and that doesn’t leech back into popular culture/attitudes.

Obviously both sides aren’t perfect and not all sex posi people avoid these conversations, it’s just an attitude I’ve run across too often… basically I just want to stress how important it is, wether you identify as sex positive or negative or whatever, to Think Critically about kink and how it is effected by our culture, and conversely affects it in return.

Hannitales part 1: saga begins

[all parts[part 2]

So here’s the deal: reblog or send asks with the next two lines of the story, I’ll draw the one I like the most and then we’ll repeat the same thing so on and so forth. I think reblogging is cooler because if other artists or writers want to join in with short fics we can do all sorts of story ramifications, but feel free to send asks.

I’m not sure I’ll be able to keep up with the same style, some lines might be delivered as hand-drawn sketches (since ill be at work tomorrow), but i’ll try to keep it up.

I’ll tag these as #hannitales cause i couldnt think of anything else

if ur sad do not fear friend i am sending puppies to help u
