Taking a splash as a nudist | UniversityPost http://universitypost.dk/article/taking-splash-nudist#.UT8fLYtFubg.twitter”The place is full of people of all shapes and sizes. Next to me stands a small, perfectly round, couple. A wrinkly bum walks by. Large and small breasts, large and small penises, thighs and stomachs. I try to keep my wandering eyes at eye level, but I don’t really succeed. I have never seen so many naked people, and in a moment, I will join the ranks of the naked.” 

Dive right in.

This weekend I’m heading to a local nudist resort for a lovely day poolside and I am looking forward to being free under the sun from society’s constricting clothes once more.

An example….
I have seen several images tonight that basically boil down to “You’re a cis-gender white male. You are already too pampered. Your troubles are meaningless. Your pains are deserved.”
Yes, my (white) fathers have abused this world for many a century. And it seems that there are two camps in this issue. On the one hand we can recognize history and strive to make the world better for everyone. In this camp justice is blind and all strive to make the playing field level. On the other hand we can play the blame game and alienate a fair portion of the population or at least make them suffer like… well, like everyone’s ancestors have. This side is about payback and punishment for the crimes of one’s ancestors.
I believe in the first camp. When a man does something wrong, blame that MAN not all MEN. When a woman does something wrong don’t play it off with a double standard. She did something wrong, not all women.
I have been wronged by men and women alike. I have been abused by gay and straight alike. I have been attacked by people of all (ok, not all but a fair number of) ethnic backgrounds. And yet I don’t hate the world! In fact, I would argue that 99.9%+ of the human population wants to do good. It is simply that the few bad seeds cast a wide and dark shadow.
I believe in equality, love and justice for all. I am sorry for the sins of my fathers, and I will work to ensure that my sons do not repeat them. However, I will not be burned at the stake for them either. I recognize that my society gives me unfair privileges because of the color of my skin and what hangs between my legs. This is not fair. I didn’t ask for this. And I don’t want advantages in life. Especially if they come at the expense of another. We need to stop those, regardless of who they are, that use their position and privilege to further the welfare of a select few. 
I started to put in a brief bio to demonstrate my own struggle in life. But then I realized that it is rare to find a person who have overcome no adversities in life; some have had more than their share. Some who are gay and black have been born in the lap of luxury while some who are white and male have been born into ignorance and poverty. As a whole, we should help those that need it… regardless of what their fathers looked like, where they are from, what they believe in or who they love. There has been enough hate and division in history.

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.

Supreme Court to hear Prop. 8 & DOMA cases – Sign the Majority Opinion!

From Human Rights Campaign:

The committed couples behind the fight to undo California’s discriminatory Proposition 8 – Kristin Perry and Sandy Stier, and Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo – decided they could not sit back and allow their relationships to be declared unworthy of marriage licenses.

They’ve won their case twice before. Now it’s going to the Supreme Court, along with one DOMA case.

Nationwide public opinion plays a role in monumental Supreme Court debates like this one, and the far-right wing knows exactly how to rally its base. Poll after poll and last month’s election show a majority of Americans support marriage equality, but if we don’t actively show it, we’re letting far-right voices drown us out.

Sign HRC’s Majority Opinion petition now to show that we’ll stand for equality through these legal battles – regardless of time and regardless of our opponents’ hateful tactics.

versatilequeen:

Telling girls and women to be nicer and more lady-like in the ways that they resist their oppression is oppressive. We are already socialized to be nice to our abusers, the creeps who hit on us at a bar, the men who “compliment” us with cat-calls on the street. Let me be hard. Let me be mean.

I will not martyr myself to teach people to be feminists when I am already expected to martyr myself so that I don’t hurt the cat-callers’ feelings.

This Is My Body

My partner’s partner co-created this masterpiece, and it is relevant to every single human. [Though the creators, and myself, wanted to see more diversity in it, I still think it’s powerful despite that shortcoming.]

“My pursuit of orgasm is neither unnatural, nor dangerous, nor scary, nor an infringement on your religious liberty. My sexual activity exists for my benefit, not your pleasure.”

“Do not be afraid of a world where women know themselves, their voice, and their power. That world has arrived.”
