Mar 3rd 2008 6:24PM OMG... KC's comment hits several squares of Anti-Feminist Bingo! http://viv.id.au/blog/?p=431

I'm working on a Bingo card for "woman dares not be ashamed of her sexuality" blog threads.

Mar 3rd 2008 12:51PM Hahahaha! So I see people are getting pissy here just like they are with Melissa's column at Valleywag. Excellent... the whole POINT is to show that sex should not be compartmentalized... oh yeah, and that word just happens to appear in the title of this post!

Mar 3rd 2008 11:43AM Okay, don't know why Tiffany's comment is showing up *after* mine... obviously she posted hers first bc I quoted and replied to part of it! The timestamp must be going funky.

Mar 3rd 2008 10:51AM "But it does mean that most people (*raising hand*) still feel varying degrees of discomfort about sex(ual discussions) in public."

Right! And see, the key here? Is *own your shit.* Yeah, lots of people feel uncomfortable with sexuality, discussions of sexuality, people who are *not* uncomfortable with sexuality, etc. But, the first step is, you (generic "you") gotta own that that's *your* issue. And then you address it -- examine where it came from, why you feel the way you do, and what you might want to do to make changes. What you *don't* do is project your insecurities onto others and avoid dealing w/ your own issues.

Mar 3rd 2008 9:48AM Wow Grant! You really did your research.

I love this post, and I'm especially loving the tennis balls photo at the top.

Mar 3rd 2008 7:12AM Furthermore, comment #7 wouldn't have been left on an identical blog post written by a guy. Which also basically proves my entire point. And.... SCENE!

Mar 3rd 2008 7:09AM I'm not going to devote a lot of time or energy to responding to ridiculous comments that prove my point. But I mean, what I would really love is for somebody to just tell me, *without* reinforcing any of the shit I called out, WHY posting naked photos online is unprofessional. And stuff like this: "Inability to confine sexual behavior to private life is considered low class and untrustworthy" does NOT count, because it doesn't answer the 'why.' I see that ignorant statement and I think, "Yep, it sure is! And that's a problem!" The whole point of what I'm getting at is trying to address the ROOT of those perceptions. Okay, you have that perception. But why? Where does it come from? Have you challenged yourself about why you believe that, or have you just regurgitated what the dominant culture has fed you?

Mar 2nd 2008 9:34PM Wow, only two comments in and already a "totally proving my point" commenter has shown up? Even *I* was betting it would take at *least* 4 comments. Well, kudos to you, Jack... you keep your head in the sand, and I'll keep on being, like, totally unprofessional.
