Subject: Pro-Sex Feminism?

“Rose’s SlutWalk and the women and men of varied gender expressions who attended were a beautiful reminder of the nuances and complexities inherent in the ongoing issue of slut-shaming and victim blaming. There are women of color in need of that kind of solidarity and understanding. There is room for women of color in the SlutWalk movement — and it has to be on our terms.”

— Zeba Blay for HuffPost Women (x)

What does intersectional sex-positivity look like?

In recent years, sex-positivity has become a prominent element of mainstream feminist and LGBTQ culture

But the sex positive ideal is not without its potential dangers and complexities

Further, sex-positivity cannot be one-size-fits-all across differences of race, class, gender, sexuality, ability and nation

What does sex-positivity look like if you are not white and cisgender?

What happens when sex-positivity includes women from various cultural/religious backgrounds, survivors, trans people, asexual people, and people with mental and/or physical disabilities?    

What does sex-positivity mean to you?

Join us tomorrow @8pm in the ALCC to discuss!
