Once again, I'm taking a line from Marina and the Diamonds and applying it to theory.
The idea of gender and sexuality is kinda big right now (as if it hasn't bee for the last x thousand years).
"if women were religiously recognized sexually, we wouldn't have to feel the need to show our ass, it's to feel free"
"if sex in our society didn't tell a guy who he should be
all my life I've tried to fight what history has given me"
Both of these are lines from the song Sex Yeah. Which is an epic song, btw.
We feel uncomfortable, for some reason, when our own sexual norms are violated. I don't mean this in a chains and whips way, but rather in a "oops I just clicked onto tranny-porn" way. That's right, I just went there.
We're trained to think that such things aren't for discussion so, at least in American culture, we build up a sensitivity to the topics. I'm hoping that after my generation, kids will be raised to be alright with different sexualities. I'd like for people to be less afraid of the unknown... which brings us back to the beginning of the semester. So, now that I've rambled for a few paragraphs here's a few gifs.
