The thing when working at home (yes, I don’t have a lot of money coming, but I work) is to avoid distractions. Tumblr, you’re an amazing place but you’re a distraction. Well, you also gave me my next article idea so really I should count you as research.
On a more personal note, this week has been very interesting again. I have my ups and downs, and I tend to confuse overwhelm with sadness/depression, but y’know, finally seeing the light. I thank my people for that.
Is it lunchtime yet?

(yes I should be studying, hush you)
disclaimer : in no way I pretend to be an expert, so these thoughts might seem silly, ill-informed, and all. Feel free to correct me, to debate, that’s what I’m here for :)
I really like Feministe. The articles are always well-documented and insightful, and I like going through the archives…and today I’ve found this one http://www.feministe.us/blog/archives/2008/07/23/feminist-porn-sex-consent-and-getting-off/
I didn’t come across this article by chance though, as I am genuinely fascinated with in the pro-sex/feminism relationship, which can be surprising when you know me, because I have this love/hate, curiosity/fear relationship with sex and body image. Plus, I confessed earlier on this tumblr that I wasn’t really familiar with porn. But, maybe that’s why I keep reading about this, you know.
Anyway, questions that cross my mind : Is porn a way to assert yourself as a feminist? Is sex the ultimate freedom? Can you use sex as a ‘weapon’ to accept your image? I use the term ‘weapon’ here because, for what I hear/see, sex, especially in the public sphere (porn, sex work) is seen as offensive, negative.
So yeah, questions. I really should go back to studying now.
edit : interesting links to go further. Porn is a hot topic in feminist convos, but some people try to change things…or at least talk openly about it

Is it possible to be happy when things aren’t perfect?
Is it okay to leave people behind, if that makes you grow up?
Is it okay not to chose between “teenage” passions and an “adult” life?
What does adult mean, really?
26. I’m a grown-up in the making.

Back in Paris. 40 days (or something) till the Big Move. Had a blast in London. Gigging again tonight, then more travels, more fun, more revisions, more everything to forget about the usual issues. It’s okay, I just need to survive. I just need to move on.
Sunny days warm my heart.
