new vid babes! SHE ASKED FOR IT.
here are the many reasons why "what was she wearing?" or "you shouldn’t have taken nude pics!" are dumb things to say.
I read a tweet from Laci this morning — her video about the harm of victim blaming has been deemed “inappropriate” by Facebook and removed from view on her page. !?!?!? ;o(
Yesterday I watched her video three times. I thought it was so powerful and well-done I shared it with my 14-year-old daughter. I even thought “brilliant, she designed this so it can be played in classrooms. It is articulate, comprehensive and non-offensive.”
I’m not one to get mad and pout though. I’m a problem-solver! So I got onto my social media pages and put up this video. Again. And again and again and again encouraging my friends and fans to do the same with the comment “Please share with all the people. This is appropriate.”ap·pro·pri·ateadjectiveəˈprōprē-it/
Please join in a push-back against Facebook’s determination by sharing this video in all the places. While I believe that Facebook has the right to choose it’s content, we can still share with our peers the detriment of victim blaming. NO ASKS FOR IT.
repeat after me:
- virginity is a social construct
- you don’t lose your virginity
- there’s nothing valuable or precious about virginity, it’s an imaginary concept
- virginity is inherently heterocentric
- your worth is not defined by whether or not you’ve had a dick inside you
- what you define as sex is up to you, you get to decide how many people you’ve had sex with
- the end
