ITS 2 AM AND I AM DYING
Yes, being nude is expressing yourself your body and your sexuality. And that’s wonderful. and every LBGTQ centre will tell you that you should love your body and celebrate it and not be ashamed of it. we’re all about that. And personally, I’m not squeamish. I’ve done art classes with the nude body since I was 10.
every LGBTQ centre will also tell you that you have the right to refuse sexual contact with someone. Even visually. You have a right to not be sexually harassed and that’s extremely important. That’s the reason why walking around in public places nude is illegal in the first place. It’s sexual harassment. And there’s no way that pride, or anything, should be taking away that right.
— To those saying “just don’t go to pride”:
It’s a PUBLIC place. If you have been a victim of sexual assault and you live downtown you should be able to cross yonge or church or any street at all on any day of the year without fear of being forced to see sexual organs and possibly-triggering images of full nudity because that is a protection afforded to us by law in our city. The answer can’t be “just stay home”. Some people have places to be, groceries to buy, appointments they can’t miss, etc.
— To those saying the anti-nudity side is telling people they can’t do something that causes no (direct) harm, whereas the pro-nudity side isn’t telling anyone they can or can’t do something:
The idea is that our sexual organs are part of our natural body but *they are still sexual organs*
Sexual harassment is considered direct harm, even if it’s just flashing your junk in someone’s face.
— To those who say that Nudism isn’t about sexuality, and the argument that children are especially offended at nudity has been tested in courts and not found valid. If the case hits the courts the nudists would use the same arguments that have been used before concerning breast feeding.
Breasts in public has a leg to stand on - it’s necessary for childrearing and it’s not practical to confine women to certain rooms for such immediate and random need. Showing people your genitals in public.. not so much. Genitals don’t have that ‘other use’ the way breasts do. They’re sex organs, plain and simple. Breasts are not always sex organs.
I get the whole ‘I’m a nudist and my body is wonderful” but that breaks down when it becomes “everyone has to see it”, especially when (as I said) sexual harassment laws come into play in public spaces.
Try going to work, or walking around downtown, or picking your kid up from school, on any other day of the year than pride, completely in the nude, and use the defence “but my body is beautiful and I don’t feel I have to cover it up”. You’re going to get so many sexual harassment lawsuits..
— To those who cite how pride started when the cops busted an underground gay sex club and brought it all out into the light, and so it’s the city’s fault for what they let loose, and that pride is a protest not a parade
well… yes, but just because we’re loud and proud doesn’t mean we get to violet other people’s rights. “it’s their fault for what we are” is very childish. WE control what and who we are, and I don’t think we should be sexually harassing people, even visually, in our fight for equal rights

unfortunatelyongoing series, “levi’s face on pugs”
I had those words stuck in my head all day long. I suspected I dreamed it, but I’m not sure. Weird …
Recently my grandmother found out I’m queer. Her response was to tell me that she disapproves of me living with my “friend” (i.e. my girlfriend) and that I should give up my vile queer ways and become a Christian (Lol). She even sent me a bible. Here are its remains, which I made into black-out poetry.
Poem 1: Bisexual (from Leviticus 19:9)— “Have sexual relations with her. Have sexual relations with him. Have sexual relations with both a woman and a man. Have sexual relations with yourself. Vomit on everyone who does not respect you.”
Poem 2: Fisting (from Judges 8:5)— “water/ lap the water/ drink/go down to drink/your hands/go down/I give into your hands/go down/encouraged/down/on the seashore/the whole hand/your hand/inside/I get to the edge/and shout/grasping/crying out/Beth/Beth/Beth/Beth/Beth/God/I came”
Poem 3: A Letter to the Exiles (from Jeremiah 28:13) — “Ze said: ‘Do not let lies name you, nor harm your heart. Gather. Raise the sword against them. They scorn and reproach, for they have not listened— again and again have not listened.’ “
Poem 4: Child (from Ezekiel 16:22) — “Your father and your mother rubbed salt in. No one looked on you with pity or had compassion enough for you, for on the day you were born you were despised. Live! Grow. I looked at you and saw you were enough.”
Poem 5: Father (from Ezekiel 16:22) — “You never adored us. You became very angry. You took some out on us. Your sons and daughters were not enough? You slaughtered— in all your detestable practices— our youth.”
Poem 6: Misandry (from Acts 27:41) — “Dangerous men should be broken.”
