Forcing sex workers off the internet won't end sex work, the stated goal of anti-sex-work crusaders, but it will make sex work more dangerous—which tells us everything we need to know about the motives of anti-sex-work crusaders. While they claim to oppose sex work because it's dangerous, they push policies that make sex work more dangerous. Sex workers weren't just advertising online, they were organizing—in addition to honing and making the political argument for decriminalizing sex work, they were screening potential clients and sharing information with each other about dangerous clients.
As a general rule: If what you're doing makes people less safe, you don't get to claim you're trying to protect anyone—it's like claiming you only set houses on fire to drive home the importance of smoke alarms. As for the rest of your family, you and the wife should slap smiles on your faces and act like you've done nothing wrong—because you haven't done anything wrong.
Your asshole brother is the bad guy, and any family members who wish to discuss how offended they were by your Tumblr blog should be directed to speak with your brother, as he's the one who showed it to them. How can I explain to my sisters that although I am a free sexual woman, I still prefer men as sexual partners?
relationship advice on Tumblr
My sisters are both involved with women and they cannot understand how, with all the awful sexual inequality in the world, I can still be primarily attracted to men. Sometimes I even imagine my sexuality as a gay man's sexuality in a woman's body, and I try to explain it to them in this way. I'm not a secret right-winger or someone kidding around by asking this question. This is a real issue.
I have a straight male friend who says he's a lesbian trapped in a man's body. What do you think of this? People don't choose to be straight—some poor motherfuckers are born that way—any more than hetero-romantic bisexuals choose to be hetero-romantic bisexuals.
You can't help who you're attracted to, GITMS, primarily or otherwise, and the contempt of family members can't change a person's sexual or romantic orientation. Your sisters should understand that, since they most likely wouldn't be with women if the contempt of family members had that kind of power.
As for describing yourself as a gay man trapped in a woman's body and your straight male friend describing himself as a lesbian trapped in a man's body Unless the two of you are trans—in which case, you could be homos trapped in the wrong bodies—your friend is just another straight guy mortified by the mess straight people mostly white, mostly men have made of the world.
You're also mortified by straightness, GITMS, or at least the sexual inequality that often comes bundled with it. But instead of your straight male friend opting out of heterosexuality which he can't do or you framing your attraction to men as a gay thing to get your sisters off your back which you shouldn't have to doyour friend should identify as straight because he is and you should identify as someone who doesn't give a shit what her sisters think because you shouldn't.
I'm a gay man in my mid 20s, and I'm getting more serious with a guy I met a few months ago.
Questions for discussion
I was surprised to eventually learn that "Michael" is in his late 30s, since he easily passes for my age. Some people wear a black ring on the middle finger of the right hand as a symbol of asexuality. It is meant to be a discreet symbol by which asexual people can recognise each other. Anyone on the ace spectrum asexual, demisexual, grey-asexual, etc can wear the black ring. It is also known to some people outside of the asexual community.
For example, this FAQ about the right hand black ring within the swinger community mentions that a black ring on the middle finger of the right hand is a symbol of asexuality, and advises swingers to avoid wearing theirs on the middle finger for that reason.
Originally, it was suggested that since the ring should be worn on the left middle finger, but it was pointed out that some asexual people are married and wear a wedding ring, and the black ring next to it can be a problem for these people, so the people discussing the idea in the thread linked above agreed on the right middle finger instead, and it caught on.
Any black ring will do. Plain black rings are popular, as are rings with ace playing card references.
See, that’s what the app is perfect for.
For example, silver rings with black bands count too. Some people make theirs out of various types of scrap material, and others draw a ring on their finger using a marker.
