“…cultural power dynamics don’t suddenly change when we enter the bedroom. Sex and sexuality, both how we experience it and how the media encourages us to experience it, can be and still are touched by oppression. A man does not lose male privilege when he’s trying to convince a woman to engage in a fetish he has. His male entitlement is still there, the pressure and socialized tendency for women to please men, service men, do what men want in order to avoid facing male wrath because we ignore them, reject them, “friendzone,” them, is still all there.”

“Its so hard to talk when you want to kill yourself. That’s above and beyond everything else, and it’s not a mental complaint-it’s a physical thing, like it’s physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don’t come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people’s words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.”

a cavalcade of etiquette: when is “it’s just my opinion” a good response???
- you like pepperoni pizza but your friend doesn’t
when is “it’s just my opinion” not a good response?
- you want people to stop telling you you’re a sexist/racist piece of shit for saying sexist/racist shit
