This week keeps getting better! I wish I’d had more time for substantive posts, but your questions and suggestions are coming in way handy, and I’m super busy planning for my trip and etc. Newest news? 1) I’m going to be tracking down Jiz Lee for an interview for my art show. Oh [...continue...]

Ok, guys, I have TWO WHOLE NIGHTS at home this week, during which I promise to write two original posts that I hope will be good (but if I promise they will be, that’s just cocky). In the meantime, it’s almost 11:00 pm, I just got home from meetings and an interview with Jessie Lee [...continue...]

Sex Isn’t All Porn, and We’re Not All Porn Stars

Though I have many arguments against most of this ideology on small levels about the wrong-headedness of shame [...continue...]

Sighh…. You know, I’ve been thinking a lot about this whole Naomi Wolf anti-porn line of reasoning, and though I have many arguments against it on small levels, it suddenly occurred to me yesterday that there’s a much bigger and glaringly obvious fault with anti-porn ideology. [...continue...]

Oooooooh This Makes Me Mad

A not-very-thought-provoking read on Al Jazeera (to their credit–in the Opinions section–by Naomi Wolf: “Is pornography driving men crazy?” An interesting title, actually, because she doesn’t really talk about what she means by “crazy” in the first place. I [...continue...]
