i would give my left kidney for asexual taystee jefferson.
she’s an extrovert who cares more about her family in all its forms than she is in dating.
none of her flashbacks or current prison drama revolve around fucking.
when poussey kisses her she says she’s “not like that” but cuddling is fine and she obviously enjoys that - why is everyone assuming she means she’s straight?
when she yells at p in the library she never says the issue is that she liked her, it’s that she liked her “like that” and “wanted her to take off her clothes and shit” - those are not the words of someone uncomfortable with a lesbian. those are the words of someone uncomfortable with sex.
she jokes about sex but it’s /always/ a joke. “a nubian king with a nubian thing”? come on. she uses it like a punchline. she uses it like an ace.
can you imagine? if any show were to have some ace representation, i could see it being orange is the new black. and can you imagine it being TAYSTEE? the fan favorite, loud and happy and dancing - sings like an angel, stings like a bee - can you imagine? taystee saying, “no, i’m asexual. not like a fucking plant, like a person. i just don’t like it.” can you IMAGINE? allosexual people being forced to see an ace character who wasn’t a novelty or a joke or treated like it was a disorder? can you imagine allosexual people actually /hearing/ the word asexual on one of the most popular tv shows that exists right now? can you even imagine?
I was already a dancer when we started dating.
It’s your body and your right to do what you want to earn a living.
And, as a woman, you are going to be objectified and sexualized at any job you choose. The difference is as a dancer, you are directly profiting off that aspect of it and in control over how you are treated by customers. You can turn someone down or respond aggressively if they are rude to you. You don’t have to suck it up or kiss their ass for fear of being fired.
i really need people to stop talking about mras only in terms of fedoras/being bronys/how unkempt they are, etc. because there are dudes out here looking like hollister models who need to be held just as accountable for their creepy/misogynistic behavior
and don’t get me started on how y’all aren’t saying “unkempt” y’all are saying fat slobs who only eat doritos and mtn. dew
your fatphobia isn’t progressive and there are dudes out here eating organic free range flax seed compote and saying the same shit that the doritos dudes are okay
they don’t get a pass just because they’re conventionally attractive
EVER has a right to touch you if you don’t want to be touched.
Not your husband. Not your fiance. Not your boyfriend. Not your partner. Not your friends. Not even your own family.
You are a person and your body is your own. And it’s a privilege if you allow someone to touch it.
A god damn privilege that can be snatched up and you don’t owe anyone a reason but that it’s your body and only YOUR body.
