“[I]magine what would happen if, instead of centering our beliefs about heterosexual sex around the idea that the man “penetrates” the woman, we were to say that the woman’s vagina “consumes” the man’s penis. This would create a very different set of connotations, as the woman would become the active initiator and the man would be the passive and receptive party. One can easily see how this could lead to men and masculinity being seen as dependent on, and existing for the benefit of, femaleness and femininity. Similarly, if we thought about the feminine traits of being verbally effusive and emotive not as signs of insecurity or dependence, but as bold acts of self-expression, then the masculine ideal of the “strong and silent” type might suddenly seem timid and insecure by comparison.”—

I often look at tumblr before bed and I love your blog. Last night I had a dream that I witnessed a murder and the cops were after me because they thought I did it. I was so freaked. You ended up being the person who helped me out and gave me secret asylum in this rad punk house. We hid in crazy room together and looked at pictures of animals, then I woke up! Wut?!
