Just another angry queer anarchist trans woman getting by in Portland. She/her pronouns, white, able-bodied, frequently depressed. Afflicted with a deep love of iconoclasts, books, bourbon, and baby goats. This blog is rather NSFW but I try to tag as needed. Need to know more? send an ask.

missfrancesjane asked: There's seems to be a thing in popular media about guys 'saving' sex workers. I saw you mention Christians coming in claiming to want to help you, but do you get many men at your work with this sort of "if I show her love/stability/money she'll give this up" fantasy?

stripperina:

Yeah absolutely.  We call them ‘Captain Save-A-Ho’.  A lot of dancers and other sex workers have dealt with guys who start as customers but have this ulterior motive of showing us that we are “better” than that job and that we need to be liberated or saved from sex work (with no regard to our actual happiness with the job or curiosity about how we actually feel).  Often it’s really just a selfish way to feel like you’re helping someone, often to distract themselves from the fact that they utilize sex worker’s labor and benefit from our existence in the sex work field.  It’s a projection, basically.  "If I get lap dances from a dancer but spend all our verbal interaction telling her how she’s so much better than this and should find a real job, I’ll feel like I did something charitable rather than just pay a naked girl to spend time with me."

Prison Is Not Feminist: These photographs are of attendees at the exhibition of No Selves To Defend that was held on July 18, 2014 and were taken by photographer Sarah Jane Rhee. The sign was designed by Antonia Clifford.

According to @prisonculture, this is how they framed the actual exhibit:

We decided that we would anchor it with the stories of Celia (a 19th century enslaved black woman) and Marissa (a 21st century unjustly prosecuted black woman).

All of the photographs created with the sign can be seen on the Prison Is Not Feminist blog, and a few photos of the exhibit itself are on Prison Culture blog.

Anonymous asked: Do you think storm can be an omega level mutant and if so how do you think she would become one?

okamikaze:

christiancgtomas:

All right so. Straight up.

There’s no reason that Ororo already isn’t one.
The fact that it’s never been confirmed in canon ain’t shit to me.

So what constitutes an Omega-Level Mutant? Limitless power?

Sorry I don’t have receipts with me; this shit is from memory.

We know that Jean Grey (and a majority of her genetic offspring) is an Omega-Level mutant. Her telepathic abilities can basically reach any corner of the globe, while her telekinesis can affect objects on a molecular level. She’s also served as host to the Phoenix Force, who, up until quite recently (with the Phoenix Five arc), only chose Omega-Level mutants as her host.

Apparently, Franklin Richards is an Omega-Level mutant. The kid created another Earth identical to 616.

Mr. M is an Omega-Level mutant. Didn’t he turn a butterfly into a pterodactyl one time?


Fricken Iceman has been confirmed as an Omega-Level mutant. Supposedly he hasn’t tapped into his full potential (or from the last of what I read of him), but yeah, here we are.

Now let’s talk about Ororo.
Ororo Munroe is the woman whose whose winds can carry her past high-speeding jets.
Ororo Munroe is the woman whose lightning has affected heavy-hitting opponents the likes of Rogue, Blob, Colossus, and Red Hulk.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can affect weather-related energy patterns on a molecular level such that she has taken Norrin Radd in a duel.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who wielded her own facsimile of Thor’s Mjolnir.
Ororo Munroe is the woman whose control over pressure is so precise that she has: deflected falling debris, created a buffer inside a noisy club so she and Callisto can have a quiet conversation, made a building explode from the INSIDE, and even created a dome to contain the explosion of a bomb described as a “baby nuke”.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can alter all forms of currents; including those of the ocean.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who, at one point, almost took out the entire population of Earth (humanoid and saurian) by creating the next Ice Age.
Ororo Munroe is the woman whose control over air is on some Aang/Tenzin/Zaheer level shit that she can and has: kept buildings in tact when separating it from its foundation when lifting it with her winds, preventing any air from entering or leaving a man’s lungs, and increased the air pressure in one’s inner ears to give her the upper hand in a fight.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can alter her perceptions such that she can see the world in multi-colored forms of energy; even allowing her to see the electric discharges that the brain gives off to the central nervous system, giving her the advantage in hand-to-hand combat.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who took on an army of government-sanctioned sentinels (and NO, I’m not talking about Halle Berry).
Ororo Munroe is the woman who literally blessed the rains down in Africa.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who created an EMP to take out Cyborg/Clone Thor during Civil War.
Ororo Munroe is the woman whose brain gives off powerful electromagnetic discharges such that even telepaths the likes of Jean Grey, Charles Xavier, and Amahl Farouk have a difficult time reading her.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who served as a host to the cosmic entity, Eternity, such that Doctor Strange can perform a surgery on the celestial being.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who has, in the past, been limited by her physical sense of body and claustrophobia; BUT who has now showing signs of overcoming all of that.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who has, one time, undid the work of a mystical being by dispersing his energy.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can conjure up an outfit with a bolt of lightning (see also: unstable molecules).
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can FEEL when water evaporates into the air.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who can sense aircrafts cutting through the atmosphere.
Ororo Munroe is the woman who, essentially, is IMMUNE to all that shit.

And how’s about them alternate realities?

Ororo Munroe became Wonder Woman
Ororo Munroe became host to the Phoenix Force.
Ororo Munroe created an atmospherically perfect city for her to live in; a metropolitan I might add.

Since we’re talking about skill sets.
Ororo Munroe has bested Cyclops and Callisto WITHOUT her powers for a leadership position.
Ororo Munroe has held multiple dignitary statuses.
Ororo Munroe is the ONLY person to serve on the X-Men, Avengers, and the Fantastic Four (SUCK IT WOLVERINE).

You asked me if Ororo could BECOME an Omega-Level mutant. If this isn’t evidence enough of her already being an Omega-Level mutant (again, just SHORT of it being CONFIRMED in canon), then I don’t know what is.

People keep thinking Ororo was given the namesake of Storm ‘cause it’s a reflection of her weather-manipulating abilities. Well, that’s part of the reason. Ororo Munroe was given that namesake because that’s what she took the world by.

Well put, in fact the fact that she can create and in a sense destroy a ecosystem at a whim is good reason to set her as an omega… But the true reality is that omega level mutants have never been well explained

It’s really difficult dating a girl who’s in recovery when 90% of what I do for fun involves substance abuse.

We find ourselves walking her dog a lot.
