In the eye of the beholder...

I found this awesome quote here:

i was about 11 and eager to learn about all of this fascinating grown up stuff, and since i had no friends and this was before the internet was commonplace, i had to consult my mother's book shelves. i found what i believe was a second wave feminist type book about women's health/the female body/sexuality/etc. there was, of course, a chapter in this book about how pornography is inherently oppressive and misogynist in nature. this chapter was illustrated with a drawing of a woman in a nurse's uniform giving a man a blowjob.

i looked at it in awe, thinking that this is an incredibly daring, radical feminist statement - she is eating his penis because she is mad at the patriarchy.

Enjoy your day, Ladies.


  1. What was the magazine? I want to read it. Why didn't you have any friends? Weirdo! What was the firt wave of the first feminist? What that efore or after Playboy?
