All the Water signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, are sleepy in some respect, exhausted, fluid overloaded and breathing underwater. This is saturation, drenching in celestial liquid, the nourishment of god and the sea of collective soul seasons. And really they are romantic in the sense they need an anchor to steady their rocking dreamboat to sleep. The rising and falling of a chest beside them is a Water sign lullaby, and they turn their torrential emotions into ravishing artwork, poetry and melody. Water individuals have a leaky etheric body, and unconsciously soak up any frequency in circulation. They frequently withdraw into solitude and sleep for days in sheer exhaustion. The rush, flux, noise and suffering of the world creeps under their skin and floods their bodies with an inexplicable heaviness. -Cherry

Everyone deserves to be seen as who they are, such as disabled people who want their sexuality to be recognized. Because our society places so much stake in, particularly women’s, sexual desirability that values whiteness, thinness, and able bodied appearance, widespread desexualization of visibly disabled people goes hand-in-hand with the dehumanization of disabled people. This desexualization is directly related to the higher levels of sexual assault and abuse that disabled people experience.

In today’s Fact Friday we will answer the question “What is virginity?” 
Virginity can mean different things to different people. We’ve heard a lot of people think virginity means that someone has not had vaginal sex. But why is vaginal sex the only sex that matters when it comes to virginity? Even if someone has other types of sex, like oral or anal sex, they may choose to never have vaginal sex. Does that mean they are virgins forever? No, of course not. This is because virginity is an idea, not a biological fact.  
There is nothing about our bodies that can “prove” whether or not someone has had vaginal, oral, or anal sex. Some people think the hymen is a test of virginity. This is not true for a couple of reasons.
1) The hymen is not a solid piece of skin that stretches across the vaginal canal, The hymen is actually a round piece of skin that slightly extends from the vaginal walls, with an opening in the middle.  
2) Not everyone is born with a hymen, or it stretches before that person has any sexual activity.
A word that might be more helpful is abstinence. Abstinence means someone is making the conscious decision not to have oral, vaginal, or anal intercourse. Abstinence is the only 100% effective method to prevent pregnancy and the best method to prevent STDs. And someone can choose to be abstinent even if they have had sex before. Anytime someone chooses not to have sex, they have chosen to be abstinent.

The body tasked with rating films for screening in the United States has given a film about an aging gay couple and their extended families an R-rating in a sign that the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) may itself have fallen behind community standards.

The MPAA gave Love Is Strange, starring John Lithgow and Alfred Molina as a couple who have been together for four decades but who are forced to move in with their families, the rating supposedly for ‘language’ used in the film – though many are saying the decision is just plain homophobic.

There are no nude scenes in Love Is Strange, no drug use, and no sex scenes. The raciest the film gets is two scenes where Molina and Lithgow are asleep in the same bed while fully clothed.

The MPAA has been called out over the issue by New Jersey Star-Ledger film reviewer Stephen Whitty who noted two other films released this month that got the same rating.

‘On Friday, “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” will be released in a wide number of theaters. It features nudity, sexual situations and substance abuse,’ Whitty wrote in a column posted online yesterday.

‘Every woman in it is a stripper, a prostitute or a murderer. There is violence and graphic gore, including one scene of a man having his eye plucked out and another of a man having his fingers broken with a pliers. It is rated R.

‘That day, “Jersey Shore Massacre” also reaches theaters. It features nudity, sexual situations, substance abuse and ethnic and racial slurs. There is violence and graphic gore, including one scene of a woman being disemboweled, another of a naked woman getting her breasts sliced open and one of a man having his hands fed into a wood chipper. It is rated R.’

‘If there’s an equivalence among these three films, and their equal unsuitability for anyone under 17, it’s lost on me — and, I suspect, on anyone but the censors at the MPAA.’

Whitty said it would be unthinkable that the film would have been given an R-rating had it starred veteran actors Robert Duval and Jane Fonda as an aging straight couple in the same situation.

‘This is a gentle, if often heartbreaking story about two loving men in a long-time committed relationship,’ Whitty wrote, ‘What on earth is in it that so horrifies the MPAA? I’m sorry. I think I just answered my own question.’

Under the MPAA rating system an R-rating implies that a film ‘contains some adult material [and] parents are urged to learn more about the film before taking their young children with them.

That whole system is so flawed.

Saying, “Get some exercise, Fatty!” is just as hurtful and offensive as saying, “My God! Why don’t you eat a sandwich!” Even seemingly positive comments like, “You look amazing! Have you lost weight?” can be hurtful to someone who is struggling with body acceptance or who has suffered with an eating disorder.
Commenting on other people’s bodies - comparing, judging, and snarking about them - is hurtful no matter how large or small someone is.
Make a pact, right now, today, not to comment on other people’s bodies.

No wrong way to have a body.
