here's a tumblr that belongs to anna!! hey that's pretty cool.
basically i like fairy tales, mystery science theater, hot dudes, nail polish, cool things people draw, yelling at various different kinds of bigots, monster high, pokemon, and other stuff that's mild-to-moderately embarrassing to admit to liking in public.
also i'm going to make richard armitage my husband someday and it is probably going to involve a mariachi band somehow. OKAY BYE ENJOY MY TUMBLR
I’m not “selling my body” any more than a masseuse, or a construction worker, or a physical trainer, or a circus performer. On stage, I perform dance and pole tricks in exchange for tips. In lapdances, I provide people with a fantasy of intimacy. I use my body for work, just like any other physical laborer. Just because my form of labor involves nudity and sexuality doesn’t mean I’m selling any part of myself. My body never exchanges owners at work. It is always mine.
Even full service workers aren’t “selling their bodies,” they still retain control and autonomy over their bodies before during and after the transaction. Is a school buying the janitor’s body to clean toilets? Are day laborers bodies being bought? I would argue even traffickers aren’t selling “bodies”, they’re selling laborers. ESP when the trafficked already know what kind of labor they’re migrating to do.
Wrt stripping, we sell a commodified sexualised service, one tailored to each client we interact with. It takes real misogyny and a real focus on seeing sex workers not as autonomous people but as mindless—if beautiful—bodies to be bought and sold.
for my ALS ice bucket challenge, i nominate… the archpriests of the illuminati! show yourselves, cowards, if you dare!
my question is
where is Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus and Iggy Azalea and all these other whites who want to be black so bad while all of this is going on? nowhere to be found? hm. i thought so
