You’re dressed up as children, as little girls. You’re wearing diapers. You’re sucking feeders. You’re performing the typical mannerisms of children and toddlers. All of this is being done in a sexual setting with adult men. If you see nothing wrong with this and if you think there is no premeditation to these performances and dynamics or that these kinks develop in vacuums, you are fucked in the head. Call it kink shaming or whatever the fuck you want, you are fucked in the head. “But what if there’s consent?” People consent to a plethora of deranged dynamics; does that make the dynamics automatically okay? “If it’s done in the privacy of their room, why does it bother you?” It’s enactment in a private setting does not stop it from perpetuating itself in more public and social settings; sexualization of children being the first and foremost result of it. “Stop kink shaming!” What is with this liberal obsession to remove shame from genuinely damaging acts. If anything, you all need to be shamed into nonexistence.
Three years later, a new girl sits cross-legged on your bed.
She tastes like a different flavor of bubblegum than you are used to.
She opens up a book that you had to read in high school, and a folded picture of us falls out of chapter three.
Now there are two unfinished stories resting in her lap.
Inevitably, she asks, and you tell her.
You say: I dated her a while back.
You don’t say: Sometimes, when I’m holding you, I imagine the smell of her vanilla perfume.
You say: She was younger than me.
You don’t say: The sixteen summers in her bones warmed the eighteen winters my skin had weathered.
You say: It’s nothing now.
You don’t say: But it was everything then.
I volunteer at The Sacramento Wildlife Care Association, which is the only licensed wildlife rescue and rehabilitation facility in the Sacramento area. Sadly the facility is in danger of permanently closing its doors well before the end of our busy season. The environmental impact of closure will be devastating. Please donate if you can, even a couple dollars would help purchase supplies. If you can’t donate please reblog and share this GoFundMe page. Thank You.
(if you are in the Sacramento area and would like to donate items instead of money there is a wish list here)
