QotD: “Freedom of speech for women begins with an integrity of the body that is true and real and honest and absolute”

This is not fiction; this is real. Freedom of speech for women begins with an integrity of the body that is true and real and honest and absolute. There are no exceptions. There are no exceptions for men, who are privileged, to invade. And there are no exceptions for women — which is to say: ‘Oh yes, you mustn’t do it to THAT woman. But do you see her over there? …Yeah, it’s okay. Do it to her. Nobody will miss her.’ We miss her! We want her back!

  1. Not one of us is dispensable. Not one of us is of negligible worth. The idea that some women are fairer game than others is one of the worst tricks our culture is currently playing on us, because when one of us is worth less, we are all doomed.

  2. Hi Phonaesthetica,

    What’s worse is that it’s being sold to us as ‘freedom’, ‘choice’ and being ‘sex positive’.

  3. Yes. That is the poisonous icing on the dirtcake.
