I started Hannibal because of Tumblr and couldn't stop so there's a lot of that floating around here (dammit tumblr). There's also lots of Marvel stuff, and some Dishonored, LOTR, Assassin's Creed, and I dunno, stuff.
tbh, i find the emergence of the concept of demisexuality very interesting, and i’m partial to thinking it’s a symptom of hypersexualized patriarchal culture that demands full sexual availability of women. wanting to develop an emotional bond before having sex is actually a very common and even normative thing, yet nowadays women seem to be under so much pressure to have casual sex that they strongly identify with demisexuality to justify the limits of their sexual comfort zone.
i wonder how the idea that not wanting to have sex with people you don’t know well needs its own label might be connected with the “sex-positive” movement and its ideas of “sexual empowerment”. we’ve conceptualized being sexual (as opposed to “half-sexual”) in very strict terms and reached a point where certain sexual behaviours, such as casual sex, are not just seen as normal and accepted but actually positioned as a required part of “full” sexuality, and by doing that we’ve abnormalized not wanting to have sex with people you don’t know well, which is alarming because there is an immense pressure on women to be sexually available to men.
But that’s not what demisexuality means??? Pretty sure demisexuals classify themselves as only being sexually attracted to someone after forming a close emotional bond, not wanting to have sex. Big difference.

Poor jello guardian Overseer. His protectee got smashed to bits.
Yes, poor little old you. There we were, discussing rape, violence against women, systemic oppression and other manifestations of sexism, and you had to jump in to remind us that “not all men” do these things. Why don’t you really say what you want to say? “I HAVE NEVER RAPED/HIT/ASSAULTED A WOMAN!” Right? Isn’t this what you really want to say? Yes, make a discussion that is about the plight of MILLIONS of women about poor little old you. I mean, millions of women are being assaulted and oppressed, but you’ve never done it, so why are we making you uncomfortable with these discussions?
straight women who casually use the word “girlfriend” to refer to their platonic lady friends, i have nothing against you, but you make the world really confusing,
I love this because it means that just a little, heteronormativity has decreased
i think a woman who would never say “boyfriend” to refer to a platonic male friend using the word “girlfriend” for a platonic female friend and assuming everyone will know it is a non-romantic relationship evidently by very nature of it being between two women is actually kind of the definition of heteronormativity
