|Violet Blue, you’re my hero|
It’s all about Violet Blue this week, folks. She stole the show.
See for yourself – here is her MUST WATCH talk on sex and social media. In the talk, she touches upon the way that culture and media talk about sex is problematic. People’s real life sex doesn’t match up to what the media portray, see?? Check out these choice excerpts from an MTV Real World contract.
Violet’s passion is to change the cultural conversation about sex. She points out that the media talks about sex in one of two ways:
1. That it is bad and scary, or
2. That it doesn’t exist
She says, “If you want to see where something is at its most fragile or when someone is most hypocritical, make the conversation about sex.”
Guess what? WE ARE THE MAINSTREAM.
Don’t miss the amazing grand finale of this talk. Bravo, Violet Blue!
As if that wasn’t enough, take a gander at her essay that hit the nail on the head regarding SlutWalk. Why isn’t this brilliance getting published in the New York Times?!
Because it’s sex-positive, and our media feeds into fear and ignorance.
Not for long, I say.
The sex-positive movement is gaining momentum, thanks to people like Violet and…. you?
