We are so inspired by the support and are launching a podcast discussing the same issues. What does the word 'pussy' mean to you? The female body is surveilled, yet remains shrouded in mystery and steeped in shame. And it isn't essentially essential to separate the lived experience from biology when it applies; and it isn't essentially essentialist to speak ur Truth directly from ur Pussy, if u have one, so long as u recognize that ur experience is not the only way or the right way. Some people think we are trying to 'desexualise' the vagina, which is not the case.
It's our pussy Glastnost. View this post on Instagram.
The young women on a mission to reclaim the word 'pussy'
Feminist conversations are not unilaterally misandrist!!! It's our pussy Glastnost. It's important to recognize that males esp white male are acting with the entire force of centuries of institutionalized power on their side. Thus, when male is shitty a female, especially in regards to being thoughtless towards her vis a vis his sexuality, he invokes a system that she is trapped inside of and reinforces the feeling of powerlessness she was taught to believe she manifests inherently. This is a hard thing and we're still learning and adapting.
