I haven’t posted in a while as I’ve been in the throes of a patriarchal overload. I am frustrated by sexism, racism and homophobia appearing everywhere I turn, from the newspapers to Fellow Spawn’s ipod.
In the end it wasn’t some outrageously misogynist rapper that prompted me to sit semi-catatonic in front of a television for three days, it was a clueless woman peddling slightly naughty fluff.
I kissed a girl and I liked it,
the taste of her cherry chapstick.
I kissed a girl just to try it,
I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it.
Why must everything be about teh menz? Even love between two women is subjected to male approval, male eyes. STOP LOOKING AT US. We aren’t interested in your attention, your smirks, your shrill cries of “that’s so hawt!” Why must our deviancy from patriarchal norms be turned into a show of submission? Piss off already.
I am so fucking tired of lesbian love being used as a joke, used for male titillation and marketed as a sexyfun thing. I’m tired of having another part of me turned into a product, marketed and sold.
