The Politics of Sex
Can you have sex with someone who has different politics as you? Can you even DISCUSS life events, situations, pop culture, inequalities, privileges or oppressions with someone that you love? Does it make sense that you feel like someone can love you for who you are but hate you for who you are at the same time? Can you ignore differences that are MAJOR and focus on a relationship when what you do with your life is unavoidably political? If someone is trying to prove their point and it makes you feel stupid, is it because you automatically assume that their opinion is wrong? Why do we think the way that we do?
How can people ignore politics when sex is involved? Why do people think when you are talking to them about something, that it is just because you want to TEACH them something or prove them wrong? When in all actuality, you used to be in their shoes and you know how much your own mind changed when you finally learned about the things that our schools don't bother to teach us?
I am proudly in support of equality in every aspect of the word. You cannot say that the people in our country have equal opportunity when there are about 20 empty houses per every homeless person here because of foreclosures. You cannot say we are equal when LGBTQ people do NOT have the same rights as straight people, or when women STILL do not make as much money as men when they have the same credentials. You cannot say that someone born homeless has the same opportunity as someone who is born into a mansion. This is NOT shaming the person that was born into the mansion, it's just recognizing that once you're at the bottom.. it's nearly impossible to be on an equal playing field with the rest of the country.. or world.
Do you want to have sex with me?
