"For many women, sex is and has always been violence; what does sexualizing consent, celebrating nudity, and protecting the right to orgasm above all else do but reaffirm the equation of women with sex that leads to the systematic debasement of women feminism claims to be against? What do “consent is sexy” bikini underwear (complete with lace and glitter) do for women who have experienced sexual trauma? I know my stomach turns when I think of my consent being “sexy,” or of my underwear being the site of my political activism. Not to mention the many women for whom being a woman has nothing to do with lacy undergarments, who would never wear winged eyeliner despite its trending alleged capacity to “kill a man.”"

"I learned that just beneath the surface there’s another world, and still different worlds as you dig deeper. I knew it as a kid, but I couldn’t find the proof. It was just a kind of feeling. There is goodness in blue skies and flowers, but another force—a wild pain and decay—also accompanies everything."
