katie-babydoll asked: I've always had the idea that strippers had "daddy issues" but looking at your blog totally cleared that bullshit conception of it!! It makes me want to join but I'm not comfortable with people looking at me butt ass naked. I can't even have my boyfriends looking at me naked. Power to you girl!!!
The idea of “daddy issues” is ultimately incredibly misogynistic, blaming and shaming women for having been abused or neglected as little girls by adult men and making it HER fault, HER problem. Even if I was a stripper with an abusive father, who the fuck’s business is it? Does it invalidate my life and experiences and choices? Is it more relevant than a lawyer with an abusive father? Or a war veteran? Why do you blame and invalidate women for being hurt by men AS CHILDREN? It’s wrong. I urge people to purge the phrase “daddy issues” from your personal vocabulary for life.
“But Carol became a character that embodies the phrase, “fierce with reality”. Her years of living in abuse taught her to assess a situation, and potential threats, in a very short amount of time. Now she is unafraid to take action to get rid of those threats. In practical terms Carol’s entire marriage was preparing her to not just survive the zombie apocalypse but thrive in it.”

we’ve taught girls to romanticise nearly everything a boy does. when i was younger i thought it was cute that boys chased the girl even after she said no. i loved it when after a girl moved away from a kiss, the guy would pull her back and force it on. i thought a guy saying ‘i won’t take a no for an answer’ was passionate and romantic. we’re literally always teaching girls to romanticise abusive traits.
