thinking

the problem with sex positive, anti-slut shaming, and other mainstream f*eministy understandings of and responses to rape culture is, and im thinking of things like Yes Means Yes and slutwalk

it makes shame and desire the linchpin upon which rape culture turns

and not violence and power.

and beyond a basic understanding of patriarchy it is mostly bereft of any sort of structural analysis.

which is why these entire “movements” can be created around a group of white women being told by a policeman to stop dressing like sluts, but not around brown immigrant women being raped in detention.

and rapes like this don’t even exist.
