So I’ve been really stressed out lately which means my neck and shoulders have been basically rock hard which means migraine city (more than usual that is).

The mister is pretty bad at giving neck rubs. He tries and I always appreciate his effort, but he just doesn’t have the skill or stamina required for the level of tension in my shoulders/neck.

So today he ordered me a Hitachi Magic Wand!
I have mentioned in the past how well they worked for me when I used to use the demo from the sex shop I used to work at (on my neck, people).
Most consumer messagers out there hurt me. They just don’t have the right kind of vibration or quality build that the Magic Wand seems to have.

I am actually getting a Hitachi Magic Wand to be used as a neck messager instead of a vibrator. Go figure.

But women can never be careful enough, can we? If we take naked pictures of ourselves, we’re asking for it. If someone can manage to hack into our accounts, we’re asking for it. If we’re not wearing anti-rape nail polish, we’re asking for it. If we don’t take self-defence classes, we’re asking for it. If we get drunk, we’re asking for it. If our skirts are too short, we’re asking for it. If we pass out at a party, we’re asking for it. If we are not hyper-vigilant every single fucking second of every single fucking day, we are asking for it. Even when we are hyper-vigilant, we’re still asking for it. The fact that we exist is asking for it.

This is what rape culture looks like.

This is what misogyny looks like.

It’s my baby brother’s birthday again. But this time he’s 18. He’s a full grown adult man.I can’t even believe it. I am very tempted to get deeply sentimental, so I’m going to stop now or I’ll be writing garbage for the next hour. So happy birthday, Cabbage!

Columbia student will carry her mattress until her rapist exits school
September 2, 2014

While most students at Columbia University will spend the first day of classes carrying backpacks and books, Emma Sulkowicz will start her semester on Tuesday with a far heavier burden. The senior plans on carrying an extra-long, twin-size mattress across the quad and through each New York City building – to every class, every day – until the man she says raped her moves off campus.

“I was raped in my own bed,” Sulkowicz told me the other day, as she was gearing up to head back to school in this, the year American colleges are finally, supposedly, ready to do something about sexual assault. “I could have taken my pillow, but I want people to see how it weighs down a person to be ignored by the school administration and harassed by police.”

Sulkowicz is one of three women who made complaints to Columbia against the same fellow senior, who was found “not responsible” in all three cases. She also filed a police report, but Sulkowicz was treated abysmally – by the cops, and by a Columbia disciplinary panel so uneducated about the scourge of campus violence that one panelist asked how it was possible to be anally raped without lubrication.

So Sulkowicz joined a federal complaint in April over Columbia’s mishandling of sexual misconduct cases, and she will will hoist that mattress on her shoulders as part savvy activism, part performance art. “The administration can end the piece, by expelling him,” she says, “or he can, by leaving campus.”

As painful as I know the constant reminder of attending school with her rapist must be, I’m glad she won’t be the only one forced to remember. I hope the rapist drops out immediately…or better yet, I hope he faces the justice he deserves.
