Sunday Snippets with Breasts and Duck Sex
|July 22, 2012||Posted by Issa under Uncategorized|
Snippets from my life from the last week or so:
- I think breastfeeding must make me sleepy. I’ll have all kinds of plans for what I want to do while Dylan naps, but then I sit down to nurse him to sleep… and he drifts off… and I drift off. It’s sort of frustrating but also really gentle and sweet.
- A grilled cheese sandwich and a glass of chocolate milk is the best midnight snack in the world, and Joshua is the most wonderful man in the world.
- The ducks have definitely started having sex. I’ve been seeing all kinds of shenanigans, both in the water and out. Now I just have to find the eggs! I don’t know if they aren’t laying yet or if I just haven’t found their places yet.
- It’s a shame no one says grody to the max anymore.
- Do Most Women Think Our Breasts Are Ours? from Body Impolitic is a thoughtful response to James Braly’s whining about his wife breastfeeding. I was also reminded of my post Strong Relationships Can Wait.
- A little 101 – I get to exist is a refreshing rant from Michelle at The Fat Nutritionist.
- What’s wrong with sexual objectification? Hint: it’s not the “sexual” bit from Jolene Tan at the f word blog is a helpful primer on sexual objectification.
Why does confusion surround sexual objectification specifically? “What’s wrong with finding someone sexually attractive?” goes the cry. “It’s a compliment!” What this misses is context. The problem is not any given individual’s private feelings about whether they find any given woman attractive. The problem is the widespread assumption that these feelings always matter.
