Since reading up on and watching the trailer for Fat Kid Rules the World! I've been super obsessed with it. I'm going to do a book giveaway (and hopefully an interview) in the near future but the Kickstarter campaign is coming to an end so I want to tell you to check it out now! So go check it out! A fatty finding salvation in punk...you know this is amazing. So go forth and send a few dollars their way if you can!
I put on a dress and left the house last night! The best thing about Facebook is that – since I never bring my camera – I can just steal photos from other people!
I haven't gone out-out in months, I don't think. It was so fun. Wasted Wednesday brought to you by $3 32oz Well Drinks. Discovery: two is my new hard limit. My friends attend weekly and have been trying to get me to join them for awhile. But pain + antisocial fears = decline. I had such a great time that I'm hoping to make this a new regular thing in my life. So more pictures to come, hopefully! I'm always blown away by how wonderful the people in my life are. I just feel so lucky and blessed. Also, good friends will repeatedly pull your neckline up when your dress and size G's are conspiring to expose your tits to the world.
I got a new-to-me phone and I was super excited to have a keyboard and camera again! It took ages to set it up because Straight Talk sucks. Only to arrive home and realize I got zero reception in my trailer. RAWR! Stupid metal can! I had to go outside in order to call and get my number switched back to my old phone. Well, I had a semi-awesome one for a few hours, at least! It's odd, I assumed reception was based on your provider, not the phone itself? But I guess my pitiful little flip phone has something going for it...I can actually use it indoors.
I was interviewed by a kink blog about fucking, feminism, body acceptance, s/m, etc. Here's a small excerpt:
Do you think there is a connection between feminism and femdom? If so, how would you characterize it?
I think there’s a connection between feminism and ALL aspects of sexuality. We’re taught that if we’re raped, we’re asking for it. If we say no, we’re prudes. If we say yes, we’re whores. You can’t win. And since we can’t win, we need to play a new game. One that allows all women to express their sexuality in any damn way they please.
Feminism empowers women to discover and accept what brings them happiness, empowerment, and joy. Don’t ever doubt that what turns you on is acceptable. There’s so much slut-shaming in this society that any woman who owns her sexuality and her body is a feminist. Even if she’s on her knees, bowing before her owner.
Being who you are and fucking how you want makes you a revolutionary.
I know I need to bring you guys more (any) real content. And I really do promise to work on that. I'm just struggling with some writer's block/uncertainty about what to write about these days. But hopefully I can force myself out of the house and into having some adventures so I can, at least, write about those! And take more pictures!
