Oh god. I'm reading through the Feminism 101 articles over at Shakesville and trying to keep up with the politics and trying to browse through assorted electronics sites for Aaron's birthday. Oh god. I'm losing my mind a little bit here. This is too much to handle.

Okay. Breathing. Taking a break.

Anyway, here are a few of things from Feminism 101 which are recommended reading to every person who thinks and feels and cares and that's only because I can't make it compulsory. It was so hard simply to pick so few of them. Because I shouldn't have to feel afraid of being alone in public; or being out at night; I shouldn't feel apprehensive about getting drunk or wearing revealing clothing; I shouldn't have felt like I needed to shave my legs at twelve; because nobody is ever "asking for it" whether "it" be a beating or being raped or being slurred at or anything, and teenagers should know that but they don't.

Possible triggers are labelled here as they are on the site, but there is always the potential for it all to be triggering to somebody.

Rape Culture 101
Trigger Warning
"But my correspondents [...] always seem to be looking for something more comprehensive and less abstract: What is the rape culture? What are its borders? What does it look like and sound like and feel like? It is not a definition for which they're looking; not really. It's a description. It's something substantive enough to reach out and touch, in all its ugly, heaving, menacing grotesquery."

The Terrible Bargain We Have Regretfully Struck
Trigger Warning
"Always the subtle pressure to abandon my principles to trash this woman or that woman, as if I'll never twig to the reality that there's always a justification for unleashing the misogyny, for hating a woman in ways reserved only for women. I am exhorted to join in the cruel revelry, and when I refuse, suddenly the target is on my back. And so it goes."

More
"'What do you expect?' I expect more."
 
On Men Being A Part Of The Solution: Maybe One Day...
"[T]that the subject could never come up among men is simply astounding. And yet I am assured by the men in my life, it does not. Of the issues with which they concern themselves, sending them into tumbling debates about what should be done and how best to solve the problem—the environment, poverty, encroachments on civil liberties, etc. etc. etc.—the fact that one out of four women will be raped in her lifetime, and many more yet victims of domestic abuse, rarely, if ever, makes the list."

On The Feminine As An Insult: Seriously, Learn To Equality
"I have listened to men express directly to my face in every way imaginable that they would never want to be a woman... And most of them have been surprised when I had a problem with that—because, you see, we're all supposed to take it as read that no one would want to be a woman, given the choice, since we all know they're the inferior model."

I collect mugs, though it is currently a very small collection. I love the things. I even have a tumblr to contain my fascination with them.

I have fun writing lists. Once, I even got one of my wishes filled-- and, whoever it was that did send me volume 5 of FAKE for Christmas that one year, once more, thank you so much ♥


Guidelines


* Make a post to your LJ. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from something simple and fandom-related to something really big. The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

* Surf around your friends list to see who has posted their list. If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy.

* There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

Same deal as last time-- individual tracks and a .rar available. Again with the person mixes. It's 1am; no more to say. Enjoy.

Given I absolutely love the idea of making soundtracks for things, I've nicked [profile] flash_indie 's idea and have done so. This is a personal themed one... It may even be the only one I ever make. Who knows! But it was fun :) The individual songs are available for download, and on the second page of files so is a .rar of all of them.

I am a little bit in love with La Roux. Elly Jackson is also strangely attractive.

Ask me a serious question about each of the following:

1. Friends
2. Sex
3. Music
4. Drugs
5. Love
6. Livejournal
7. Porn
8. The Future

No matter how rude, sexual or confidential... I will answer honestly.

Chasing Cars // Snow Patrol


We'll do it all
Everything
On our own
We don't need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel
Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

Let's waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads
I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see

I don't know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Walking On Sunshine - Katrina And The Waves


Oh! Oh yeah
I used to think maybe you loved me, now baby I'm sure
And I just cant wait till the day when you knock on my door
Now every time I go for the mailbox , gotta hold myself down
'Cause I just can't wait till you write me you're coming around

And don't it feel good!

Hey, alright now
And don't it feel good!
Hey, yeah

I used to think maybe you loved me, now I know that its true
And I don't want to spend all my life , just a-waiting for you
Now I don't want you back for the weekend
Not back for a day, no, no, no
I said baby I just want you back, and I want you to stay

Woah yeah now!
I'm walking on sunshine , woah
I'm walking on sunshine, woah
I'm walking on sunshine, woah
And don't it feel good!

Hey, alright now
And don't it feel good!
Hey yeah ,oh yeah
And don't it feel good!

Walking on sunshine
Walking on sunshine

Flames // VAST


Close your eyes
Let me touch you now
Let me give you something
That is real
Close the door
Leave your fears behind
Let me give you
What you're giving me

You are the only thing
That makes me want to live at all
When I am with you
There's no reason to pretend that
When I am with you
I feel flames again

Just put me inside you
I would never ever leave
Just put me inside you
I would never ever leave you

Calling You - Blue October


There's something that I can't quite explain
I'm so in love with you
You'll never take that away
And if I've said it a hundred times before
Expect a thousand more
You'll never take that away

Well expect me to be
Calling you to see
If you're OK when I'm not around
Asking "if you love me"
I love the way you make it sound
Calling you to see
Do I try too hard to make you smile?
To make us smile

I will keep calling you to see
If you're sleeping, are you dreaming
If you're dreaming, are you dreaming of me
I can't believe you actually picked me

I thought that the world had lost it's sway
It's so hard sometimes
Then I fell in love with you
Then came you
And you took that away
It's not so difficult
The world is not so difficult
You take away the old
Show me the new
And I feel like I can fly when I stand next to you
So while I'm on this phone
A hundred miles from home
I'll take the words you gave me and send them back to you

I only want to see
If you're OK when I'm not around
Asking "if you love me"
I love the way you make it sound
Calling you to see
Do I try too hard to make you smile?
To make us smile

I will keep calling you to see
If you're sleeping, are you dreaming
If you're dreaming, are you dreaming of me
I can't believe you actually picked me
