    I need feminism because roofie detecting nail polish is a necessary product.

    I need feminism because roofie-detecting nailpolish is a “solution” for rape culture.

    Your statement is more apt.

    How do you survive?

    You just do.
    There is no other choice,
    no other viable options.

    You throw yourself into it,
    head first
    and make a mess along the way.
    Gain a few too many scars,
    break some things,
    mend others.

    Eventually,
    you find yourself with
    a couple of friends
    and a few precious tools.

    You just have to.
    You will.

  • "Because we live in such a monogamy-centered society, it makes sense that many people can only conceive of non-monogamy in what ultimately still amounts to monogamous terms. There is a common misconception that a polyamorous relationship is really no different from an open-relationship agreement: one committed couple, with some lighthearted fun on the side. But the word “polyamory,” by definition, means loving more than one. Many of us have deeply committed relationships with more than one partner, with no hierarchy among them and no core “couple” at the heart of it all. To me, this notion that there must be one more important relationship, one true love, feels a lot like people looking at same-sex couples and thinking that one person must be the “man” in the relationship and the other must be the “woman.” After all, both of these misunderstandings result from people trying to graft their normative conceptions of love and relationships onto people who are partnering in non-normative ways. It seems that it is somewhat easy for many people to acknowledge that humans are capable of loving one person and still enjoying sex with others (assuming, of course, that the terms of their relationship make such behavior acceptable). But it is much harder for people to think outside the fairy-tale notion of “the one” and imagine that it might be possible to actually romantically love more than one person simultaneously."
