subbieblackgrl: All black men do not have large penises. I know it’s hard to believe, but it’s true. *insert sarcasm* My ex-husband is a black man. He had one of the smallest I’ve ever seen. (Don’t laugh, guys…love conquers all, lol!) Many of my friends who only date black men can tell…

AggieSez is one of the awesome new(ish) bloggers on the polyamory scene over at Solopoly.net, quite possibly my favorite blog at the moment. She’s working on writing a book with Lily Loyd about nonstandard relationships: “relationships that are somehow off society’s standard relationship escalator norm: strictly monogamous, lifelong cohabitating partners (married or equivalent, perhaps...

These all sound very similar to how I prefer to behave, live. When I have time, I will be copying these into my “guidebook” because I often refer to it in times of emotional upset to remind myself how to best care for myself.
Experience of a non-primary poly partner +... →
This really resonated with me as a non-primary partner. I’m lucky in that I know fully that my partner would not let me go so easily, unless it was my choice to go. I have been in a similar place before, and will likely be there again. It helps to remember that the self-loathing and self-blame comes from societal influence and ingrained couple privilege that isn’t necessarily...
You understand what it is to be a cutter. You understand that it’s not for attention. You understand that it’s a release. You understand that the aim isn’t death. You understand that feeling pain is easier than feeling numb or broken. You understand that emotions can choke you. Reblog if you’re not: disgusted, horrified or look down on cutters… Reblog if you really, truly, understand.

Feminists: Hey. We'd like for women to be treated as equals.
Society: Oh sure. You want "equality" but then you expect men to open the door and pay for meals, is that it? That's not equality! That's special treatment!
Feminists: Um, no not really. You don't have to open the door and pay for our meals. We can do that ourselves.
Society: *gasp* What? You don't want men to open doors for you? Why do you hate nice people? No wonder chivalry is dead! You'd yell at a man for just being polite and opening the door for you?
Feminists: No! We're just saying you don't have to do it just because we're women!
Society: And while we're at it, how come you don't protect male victims of abuse and rape, huh?
Feminists: Actually, we think it's really terrible that men are forced to stay quiet about their abuse because they're worried about not being taken seriously. It's this Alpha Male myth that causes it. Men are abused and raped and they're not helped because men are supposed to be tough and able to handle it. This also goes for men not being able to express emotions.
Society: Oh, so you just want men to be a bunch of pansies then, huh? You hate men for wanting to be strong LIKE NATURE INTENDED THEM TO BE. You'll be sorry when you end up married to some weak, simpering fool who likes to talk about his "feelings"!
Society: Also, you can't have equal rights because women aren't aggressive enough to want higher pay and stuff.
Feminists: HOW ABOUT YOU GO FUCK YOURSELF AND THE HORSE YOU RODE IN ON?
Society: Jesus, calm down. No need to be so aggressive.

Amelia Earhart prenup from the 1930′s lays out a... →
Feministing says: this woman had a clear sense of what she wanted out of a marriage. And I find much of her marital vision compelling, even today. Surely there are a lot of modern day feminists who can relate to Earhart’s sentiments about marriage. But while her vision is forward-thinking, the well-reasoned perspective laid out in these papers is strangely reassuring to me, in that it’s a good...
A Quick Guide to Whether a Woman Owes You...
Dude: I want to know if a woman owes me something.
Guide: Well, did you enter into a loan contract with a woman, providing her with goods or money that has not yet been returned?
Guide: Hmm. Well, do you have some other contractual agreement to provide goods or services in exchange for a compensation that has not yet been made?
Guide: It doesn't sound like a woman owes you something.
Dude: What if I sent her a private message on this web forum we both post at.
Guide: Ah. She doesn't owe you shit.
Dude: Well, what if I sent her a message on a dating site. That's just be rude to ignore.
Guide: She doesn't owe you shit.
Dude: Isn't it just common courtesy to write a detailed explanation of why she won't respond favorably to me after I've messaged her five times?
