My name is Lee…It’s short for something no one seems to be able to pronounce.
I am a 19 year old from California but I’ve been trying to escape to the East Coast for a few years now and I foresee success in my near future ]:)
I would say that I’m pansexual but that would be more in theory than practice.
This blog is just a place for me to post self-acceptance, anti-body shaming, self-love related things and occasionally express my irritation/infatuation with my bf <3
I asked all of the gay male students in the room to raise their hand if in the past week they touched a woman’s body without her consent. After a moment of hesitation, all of the hands of the gay men in the room went up. I then asked the same gay men to raise their hand if in the past week they offered a woman unsolicited advice about how to “improve” her body or her fashion. Once again, after a moment of hesitation, all of the hands in the room went up.
These questions came after a brief exploration of gay men’s relationship to American fashion and women’s bodies. That dialogue included recognizing that gay men in the United States are often hailed as the experts of women’s fashion and by proxy women’s bodies. In addition to this there is a dominant logic that suggests that because gay men have no conscious desire to be sexually intimate with women, our uninvited touching and groping (physical assault) is benign.
