So here’s hoping your feminism involves more than penetrating a willing partner with your fingers, tongue, cock, and whatever vibrators happen to be lying around. Because if your feminism doesn’t include support for pro-choice policies and candidates, regular donations to Planned Parenthood, backing equal pay for equal work, speaking up when other men say shitty/rapey/dehumanizing things about women (particularly when there isn’t a woman in the room whose pussy you want to lick until you come, because feminism!)—and more—then you’re not a feminist, ardent or otherwise.

So, a movie is being made about Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Jackson going on a roadtrip, which sounds like it would be awesome, but they just cast Joseph Fiennes as MJ. Not a good look for an industry that seems to insist on a lack of diversity. It’s complicated, man. Anyway, time will tell…

Snooping puts us in a bind because: Control isn’t love; it’s control. If we want to be in mutually fulfilling, loving relationships with care, trust, and respect, our relationships cannot be about power and control. Ever been stifled by somebody’s jealousy and possessiveness? Yep, that’s not love; that’s control. Snooping is temporary protection against doubts. The next time we experience the feelings and thoughts, if we haven’t addressed the root cause and learned how to self-soothe and also communicate with our partner, we will snoop again. And lather, rinse, repeat. It’s pseudo control even if the other party doesn’t know about it. We’re trying to remove uncertainty but we cannot control the uncontrollable and we are engaging in snooping in lieu of having more command of ourselves and being conscious, aware, present, and responsible in our relationships.
Love and magic,
