Grad student of LGBTQ studies who finally moved back to New England from California last fall. Forever in love with my ivy-covered, queerer-than-hell women's college. I post a strange mix of hot women being sexy with other women, references to selected pop culture that passes muster, and irrefutable evidence that the United States is tumbling towards a perhaps irreversible Roman decline. That's the moment we live in. Perhaps it only makes sense as postmodern. Enjoy.

I am a naturally big person - I’ve been considered overweight since I was young (6 or 7) and I’ve been lucky enough to have doctors who acknowledge that I am perfectly healthy, active, eat well, my BMI just hangs around that 25 (“overweight”) mark and I have a tendency to carry extra fat. Despite…

Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virle. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched.

So for the last four months or so, I have taken part in the body positivity movement on Instagram, including posting photos of myself in my bikini and underwear/bra. Keep in mind that none of my photos have ever been sexually explicit or suggestive and that I have always been fully covered. As far…

I think the worst thing about street harassment is that for a while when you walk home afterwards, every stare burns you, every single person is a threat, you exhaust yourself planning what still-open business you’d run into if someone tried to attack you. A 20 minute walk feels like a 20 minute march through a live minefield, you never know who you’ll set off just by walking by. 

It’s pretty awful.

Don’t holler at ladies, yo.
