Babes In Toyland - “Bruise Violet” 

In many communities (especially ones that consider themselves “alternative,” “open,” or “liberal”), performance bisexuality might be a standard that all women must meet. This means that in those communities, women are expected and pressured into being sexual with other women for the satisfaction of straight men.

Shiri Eisner

So far I don’t like the book this quote is from quite as much as I thought I would (or perhaps wanted to), but this really resonates with me. All of the sexual violence I have endured throughout my lifetime has been in supposedly “open-minded” and “liberal” situations and institutions that aggressively promote sexual availability and positivity.

Targeting the Johns in Sex Trade - NYTimes.com →

wedeservethesame:

There’s a growing awareness that sex trafficking is one of the most serious human rights abuses around, with some 100,000 juveniles estimated to be trafficked into the sex trade in the United States each year.

Some women sell sex on their own, but coercion, beatings and recruitment of underage girls are central to the business as well. Just a few weeks ago, New York City police officers rescued a 14-year-old girl in Queens who had run away from home and ended up locked up by pimps and sold for sex. According to court documents, she was told she would be killed if she tried to run away, but after three months she managed to call 911.

Police increasingly recognize that the simplest way to reduce the scale of human trafficking is to arrest men who buy sex. That isn’t prudishness or sanctimony but a strategy to dampen demand….

I can’t stress enough how important it is that you surround yourself with supportive people who make you feel important and special, and who enhance your life with their presence. If their presence is making you feel worse instead of better, re-evaluate why you’re letting them stay.

It is only when you shift [the oppression of women] to a different frame such as race or disability—where men are also discriminated—that it renders it intelligible to people, otherwise they don’t see it at all.
— Julia Long (via sapphoric)
Love is often nothing but a favorable exchange between two people who get the most of what they can expect, considering their value on the personality market. Each person is a “package” in which several aspects of his exchange value are blended into one: his “personality,” by which is meant those qualities which make him a good salesman of himself; his looks, education, income, and chance for success - each person strives to exchange this package for the best value obtainable. Even the function of going to a party, and of social intercourse in general, is to a large extent that of exchange. One is eager to meet the slightly higher-priced packages, in order to make contact and possibly a profitable exchange.
— Erich Fromm, The Sane Society (via internalperception)
