Michel Foucault goes up to the counter and orders an iced coffee. Is his choice a product of his past or his present? Aren’t we all just at the whim of the power structures that control our society? Should we abandon this Starbucks and take control of our own beverages? What do we know about coffee? What do any of us know about anything? The barista, not surprisingly, quits her job.

Anonymous said: in response to your post about being upset over the definition of rape as unwanted invasion by a penis or object not pertaining to men raped by women...uh...I mean, that's probably because even when a man is raped, it's by another man (a cis man, typically), like, 99% of the time? That post just seemed very "but what about the MEN!! women rape TOO!!", which didn't sit well with me, honestly
Rape TW (I’m on mobile and can’t tag sorry.) Ugh. If you mean by acknowledging that men get raped I’m being “but what about the men” then so be it. I will not apologize for that. I know extremely well that women are the primary victims of rape and when men are raped it’s usually by another cis man, but I would still like a definition that’s inclusive of ALL forms of rape. Someone informed me that’s the legal definition of rape more or less as well. Idk it frames the penis as always being the perpetrator of rape when I can think of many different scenarios when that wouldn’t be the case. Also, the definition is pretty cissexist because it ignores certain trans identities that wouldn’t be considered victims with that phrasing.
