Because we don’t speak about sex, there is no socially acceptable language surrounding it. So the language of porn has jumped in to fill that space, and that’s an issue, because in a male-dominated industry the language of porn is all too often male-generated. The person who coined the term “finger blasting” didn’t have a vagina. The person who coined the term, “getting your ass railed” never got their ass railed. Pounding, hammering, banging… And language matters, because when the only language you have available is abusive and one-directional, in terms of having things done to you, it creates a very weird view of how sex works.

Porn Is Dead, Long Live Sex | VICE United States (via sinshine)

"beat the pussy up"

"tear that ass up"

"smashed that shit"

Porn has created a fucked up mindset and you cannot tell me it hasn’t

It’s not okay when you see nothing but

"MONSTER DICK DESTROYS TEEN PUSSY"

"SLUTS POUNDED FOR HOURS"

There is no intimacy. There is no sensitivity

Just the vagina as a masturbation toy for the penis to use.

Not two or more human beings coming together and actually ENJOYING themselves.

She’s fourteen, and she already feels like shit for being born white and cis.
Fuck tumblr.

this makes me sad more than anything. The fact that people feel guilty for existing is sad.

oh poor white cis peoplegrow the fuck up; this site is one of the only places where minorities can vent and stupid cis people are offendedjust stop

No, here’s the fucking thing. This site isn’t for one group of people. It’s a fucking blogging site. For EVERYONE. You tell people not to be ashamed of what they fucking are, but only of its what you want? That’s pretty fucking disgusting. If you want equality, you don’t preach hate, because hate breeds more hate. That 14 year old isn’t your oppressor. She has done nothing wrong to be forced to hate herself, and to hate what she was born in. Grow the fuck up.

Okay, but here’s the thing. Nobody ever asked her to apologize for being white or cis, because guilt over these things is functionally useless to trans people and POC. It does nothing to solve any problem what-so-ever, and it very easily turns into resentment. This is where the phrase “you made it all about your white/cis feelings” comes in. It would be one thing if she were apologizing for something concrete that she had done (“I’m sorry for that cissexist thing I said” or “I apologize for reblogging that racist post, I will do better in the future”). But instead she’s acting like a kicked puppy and making oppression all about her and how she’s feeling.
It’s so condescending. “Oh, you pwoor wittle trans people, how you must be suffering, I feel so guilty. I’m not actully going to do anything to ease your suffering, but I feel so guiltyyyyy" 
Given that she’s 14, she is not mature enough to understand that. Likely she simply believes this foolish rhetoric so common on tumblr that cis and white people are “persecuted”, and hasn’t learned how things really are yet.
But the rest of you do not have that excuse. The rest of you sitting around acting like the reason you are despised is because of your whiteness or cisness instead of the actual shitty things you do or say need a serious reality check. “Feeling guilty” is your lazy cop-out excuse not to do anything about anything and still patting yourselves on the back about how accepting and enlightened you are.
tl;dr: neither trans people nor POC want your guilt. Stop making things about your white/cis feelings. Grow the fuck up.

Since being outed by a classmate as a porn performer, Duke freshman Belle Knox (that’s her performance name) has received endless slut shaming and death threats. NOT OKAY. She responded with a totally badass feminist essay on her right to perform and the hypocrisy of shaming (female) porn performers while celebrating (male) porn consumers. Read her essay here.
