I seriously feel like my generation is going to be worse-meaning more misogynist- than the last. I know, I know, everyone says that, but there are somethings I’ve considered that kinda make it different: 1) the people saying that are usually not in that generation 2) easily available internet pornography is what my age group grew up with. No other age group has had that. It fucked me up, it fucked my ex-friends up, and it’s fucking up everyone. I saw this happen myself when I was in middleschool and highschool, but I don’t remember much of it thanks to being raped all throughout those years. (Probably because of all the porn my classmates watched.)
Here’s the back story: Today, I overheard one of the women in my class tell her friend about how there’s a “secret” porn-watching club on campus. They buy chicken express and then go watch it at someone’s house. The woman who hadn’t known about it was really confused, asking why they did that and how that wasn’t just a gay orgy. The woman who started the conversation said she had no idea, that she guesses it’s just like any other movie club.
Now, the chat (FYI Mr. Prude is my lover). Bolded some of the scary and most important shit.

[9:53:12 PM] mscitrus: BELMIR FUCK YEAH (dance)
It’s fucking sad, but not new to me, since the most of the girls I knew used porn. I used to be that girl.
While most radfems know about have “sex-positive” feminism shoved in their face, I don’t think many get to know what easily accessible pornography is doing to the average girl. “Feminists” will say it’s all well and good, but they are a very small demographic compared to girls and women as a whole. (And are disproportionately white and middle/upper class.)
From what many radfems have said about when they were girls, it seems like everything has changed so much. I feel like I should post things like this because most radical feminists are far older than me-the youngest one I can think of is in her thirties, I think. I’ll probably post a variety things I see or hear from my peers, to try and give radfems some idea of what’s going down among us whippersnappers.
Also: theme changed because, as much as love my kitty, white is fucking boring. Will probably undergo more edits during the beginning of summer.
