We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

A little peek from under my dress at the wedding this weekend.

Mean Daddy didn’t allow me to take it out until after the dancing was in full swing! Over four hours and I had to walk a mile in it, from the wedding to the reception, since it was all in the woods.

I was sooo uncomfortable and sore and god I felt so owned and good and soaked in my little black dress and plugged up bum. ^_^

I danced my booty off, teheh.

Xoxo Alice
