☥ It doesn't matter how hard I try,
I can't keep the dog's fur off of my clothes! ☥
A look into the mind of a polyamorous, queer, feminist, married, nerd-alicious, yellow loving, fibromyte, ballet dancing, gravity defying, tree hugging, dirt worshiping, fan-fucking-tastic stripper.
So many famous pole dancers (Felix Cane, Jenyne Butterfly, DirdyBirdy) are so afraid to be sexy. They can do amazing gravity-defying pole tricks but when it comes to being sensual, they fall flat (for me). LeighAnn from BeSpun is amazing but tons of her YT comments are filled with people bashing on her for dancing too much like a “stripper”. Where do these people think pole dancing (as a sport) comes from? Just because you take off the heels & keep on the top doesn’t make it something different. The hundreds of “this isn’t real pole dancing, this is just trashy stripping” comments are pure BS. I think a lot of professional pole dancers are afraid to show their sensual side because of the backlash they know they’ll receive. It really is unfortunate because women should be celebrating other beautiful women, not hindering them because they like to do hair-flips & wear clear high heels.
What kind of world do we live in when young men are so proud of violating unconscious girls that they pass proof around to their friends? It’s the same kind of world in which being labeled a slut comes with such torturous social repercussions that suicide is preferable to enduring them. As a woman named Sara Erdmann so aptly tweeted to me, “I will never understand why it is more shameful to be raped than to be a rapist.”
And yet it is: so much so that young men seem to think there’s nothing wrong with—and maybe something hilarious about—sharing pictures of themselves raping young women. And why not? Their friends will defend them, as they did in Steubenville, tweeting that the young woman was “asking for it” and that the boys were being unfairly targeted.
Women and girls are the ones expected to carry the shame of the sexual crimes perpetrated against them. And that shame is a tremendous load to bear, because once you’re labeled a slut, empathy and compassion go out the window. The word is more than a slur—it’s a designation.
