DO NOT DARE OVERLOOK THIS POST

I got the messaged to do the breast cancer awareness status “whatever”. And I decided to not participate. Why you may ask? Well 1) writing that someone asked you to be a prostitute and you’re hesitant - to me, has a negative connotation and is whorephobic. Why would you be hesitant? You choose this status likely because you enjoy sex. If you can get paid for something you love - do it! My parents always told me I could be anything I wanted to be, and when I was in school I was always told to do what love. So why is there so much stigma re: sex work.
2) another status was re: coming out of the closet and saying you were gay. To me, this is homophobic and trivializes the experience of queer people who indeed have to come out and say hey, i am not attracted to the opposite sex - which actually shouldn’t be a thing! Yet it is, because we assume everyone is hetero until they say or do something to challenge that.

8 years ago marks the day @MaggieKBross and I truly became friends.

Because I’m feeling sentimental on our anniversary (and I am working an ON), here are my favourite times with the ORIGINAL Mrs Alisha Riley:

1. Her screaming at me when I asked her to buy me booze, and then smoothing things over with my mom’s fudge.

2. When the bus driver thinking we were just those people that rode the bus for fun, and then proceeded to
embarrass us as we switched buses.

3. Snooty Fox when a wing dropped and it was the funniest thing in the world. / “psssst” is this yours, as I nudged a comb I found on the ground towards her.

4. Western parties (re: on St Pattys day being subbed by those western girls because we went to Mac, and NYE).

5. My trip to C-town. - “oh look it’s the pussycat dolls” and my NYE puking all over the hosts lawn.

6. Camping. I’ll never forget waiting on this woman to show up - I’ll be there in an hour she says. 3 hours later … Who knew this was going to indicate the rest of our friendship.

7. Mississauga. ‘Nuff said. Getting lost, running out of money, being hobos in the rich neighbourhood.

8. Running through Hess in my heels after pissing in an alley. The night that will always have a reference to “cheeks”

9. My bachelorette - great MOH, stayed out until the end, and got us hooked up with a group of dudes with bottle service - what a Baller. I just wish she would have gotten us to Costa Rica.

10. Countless nights out drinking mid week, even though it is likely the reason we both suffered academically.

11. She got me out of skater shoes.

12. Endless phone dates which, let’s be real, and the only reasons we are still a) sane individuals b) not in jail and c) no babies have been punted.

13. Our trip to Oakville. Otis became a thing. Also our watermelon who’s name escapes me…

14. Her endless remarks re: the cow thing, glad I could make her day over and over again with that one.

15. The way I can be overly explicit with her, and tell her the dirtiest things in the world, and she still giggles at the word penis.

So cheers The Original. Can’t wait for many years of laughter and hilarity to come!

Isn’t that interesting.

Tumblr emailed me to tell me they deleted my post calling out the dude who sent me a rape threat.

But hasn’t banned the dude who sent me a rape threat, even though I reported him.

I guess Tumblr just wants to make their site safer for people who send rape threats than those who receive them.

I guess it’s not considered harassment to send rape threats, but if you name the person who sends you rape threats, you are harassing them.

Bring consent out of the bedroom. I think part of the reason we have trouble drawing the line “it’s not okay to force someone into sexual activity” is that in many ways, forcing people to do things is part of our culture in general. Cut that shit out of your life. If someone doesn’t want to go to a party, try a new food, get up and dance, make small talk at the lunchtable—that’s their right. Stop the “aww c’mon” and “just this once” and the games where you playfully force someone to play along. Accept that no means no—all the time.

One night I stayed with my ma and her friends. I had a toothbrush in my purse, which I used to brush my teeth the next morning. My moms friend looked at me and asked me if I also have “gich” (underwear) in my purse. I laughed and said yeah. Her response was “oh to be young and not know where you’re going to spend a night”

True story.

Just a little heads up for aspiring public speakers out there!

cuddly-morrigan:

The gender neutral term for “ladies and gentleman” is “distinguished guests”. This has been around since at least the 60s, so no one is going to question your use of it.

Please, please use this along with “ladies and gentlemen” if you aren’t entirely sure of the gender of your audience.

Thank you!

How to break out of a zip-tie- potentially life-saving information

You guys, please share it. You never know when someone is going to need this information.

PLEASE reblog this— zipties are one of the most common ways of binding a person upon kidnapping because they are cheap and hard to break.

Knowing things like this puts you one step closer to freedom if, heaven forbid, you fall into a situation where you need to use this information.

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.

You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.

As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”

Male privilege is “I have a boyfriend” being the only thing that can actually stop someone from hitting on you because they respect another man more than they respect your rejection/lack of interest.
