Re: “Federale, Point Juncture WA and The Shivas

This show was rad! I wore my cowgirl boots especially for the occasion and was happy to see other audience members following suit for the occasion. I decided to go last minute and walked out with their new album on vinyl! Thanks for the heads up on this show.

Re: “Savage Love

Love Them Both seems to be interested in the possibility of meeting a man and woman who are not neccisarily in a relationship together. As a bi lady myself the thought of entering an already established relationship is less than ideal for a long term solution. Why is your main advice to her to become a "unicorn"? OKC is a fun site and I have viewed profiles of people in triad relationships before. Best of luck to love them both!

Re: “Learn to Be Latina's Foul-Mouthed Take on Race and Identity: A Bold Choice, with Mixed Results

Thanks for the review Alison! I may or may not go to see this play after reading your review. If anything, you're comments on Olga Sanchez's performance will encourage me to consider buying a ticket. I haven't been to many local plays in Portland but I am happy to learn about this theater. As a Mexican-American woman in Portland, it's awesome to be aware of a group that explores my Latina heritage!

Re: “Flipping the Script

Thank you Alison.

It would be awesome to see you write a feminist column for The Portland Mercury!

You are one of my favorite writers for this paper :-)

Re: “Too Snarly

Feminists who have learned the tactics of male "Pick-up Artists" can totally see through your pathetic attempts at getting laid. Grow up man child and maybe someday you will have a chance. But maybe you really are just an asshole for life. From this post it sounds like you are destined for assholedom forever. Leave Portland. PLEASE.

Re: “SL Letter of the Day: What Do You Think?

I personally feel that cheating would be bad news for a monogamous marriage.
If HHNRW wants to stay with his wife, I hope that their is a way for him to rekindle their sex life. Maybe see a sex therapist? Take his wife on a sexcation? Depression or birth control could be reducing her libido like you said. If by all means she is done with sex, I think he should end the relationship and move on. Sex is super important for me, along with many other factors. No sex= deal breaker. 15 years of marriage is a long time but without sex is it not just a friendship. If the wife does not want to do this with her husband, it would be ideal for her to allow her husband to seek sex elsewhere. However this is not the case and I feel like being honest in a relationship is most important to live a healthy and happy life.

Re: “Don't Be a Dick, Rashida Jones

Slut-shaming is overused and abused. While Rashida Jones comments were not expressed in the most appropriate manner, policing and attacking someone who is trying to point out a much larger systematic issue is not going to push forward our discussions of feminism and sexuality. Slut-shaming is a buzz word that is now thrown at any women who does not celebrate the sexual actions of another. Where do we draw the line?

If anything let's look at the deeper issues that create the divide in opinions of feminism and its relationship to sexuality; instead of dismissing what the opposing view has to say. I'm not celebrity but I do know that the context that female celebrities find themselves is in a patriarchal one that as a majority caters to the male gaze. So from that context, I don't want to demonize or put down females in that industry that use their sexuality to become more successful. Even with this opinion, I can see how it could be frustrating for Rashida to see her peers having to navigate their way to fame through this structure. Rashida sees her peers use of sexuality as a means of increasing their value to the viewers. Sex sells, and it's a commodity that is very valuable in the entertainment industry.

Is this an argument where you are either 'with us' or 'against us'? I know that as feminists we are above this and have the capability of having a discussion that is constructive and enlightening rather than dismissive and a holier than thou contest.

What I see missing from this discussion is the instersectionality of race and age in regard to female sexuality. As a whole, through the medias lens, female sexuality is often referring to skinny young white female sexuality. Not to say that this all that is spouted from the medias lens. However, this tends to be the default. If we want to be inclusive and allow people of all body types, races, and ages, to openly be proud of their sexuality, a larger discussion can be had on how we can challenge the 'norm'. Let's really celebrate our sexuality as whole and not only as a minority who fit the mold or come close to fitting the mold.

Sexuality is complex and ever changing. Lets not get caught up in he said she said blah blah blah. What are the important societal/systematic issues at hand that pit us against one another in debate and that allows people to profit off of the male gaze. We are bigger than this petty arguing. To dismantle this arbitrary system lets not demonize one another and get to the root of this problem.
