just submitted my 3000 word very rough draft of thesis to advisor
now I’m just going to have serious anxiety about it for the next few days, til I get an email with a really brutal critique of what I’ve written. It’s really great that he is taking a lot of time to make my writing better but sometimes it’s so harsh and I just don’t feel great about the majority of what I wrote. In tearing down everything I say and making me write or tell him my idea’s again in stronger in more concise way it should be really great.
“I don’t care how much sex anyone has, how often they do it, or who they do it with. I’m much more interested in the consent, pleasure, and well-being of the participants and the people affected by it. I respect women who are asexual, celibate, monogamous, multi-partnered, or have had more partners than they can recall. I respect women who only have sex after a commitment to monogamy and those who have sex with someone within minutes of meeting them. I respect women who have transactional sex, women who have sex for love, or for any other reason. I know that all of these categories are permeable and that many women move from one to another. And I know that any of these decisions can be made from a place of personal power, choice, and authenticity, as well as from a place of coercion, shame, and disempowerment.”—Charlie Glickman (If You Don’t Respect Sluts, You Don’t Respect Women)
