Considering how prevalent mental illness is, why do so few bloggers talk about it?

The aim of this blog is to write about my experience with mental illness, developments in my life as well as issues in the field of mental health all the while keeping a feminist framework.

I hope you can take something from this blog, whatever that may be.

Takin' er easy

Watching Lady Gaga for a bit of a break
check out what Im watching: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAHfJsqalks

I have a crush on her. While I dont normally admit to liking pop, the thing about her is that she is actually saying something DIFFERENT (in pokerface at least). In pokerface she is talking about deception in regard to women deceiving men for sex... now I am not condoning it, but it is very refreshing to see a woman taking control of her sexuality in this way. Plus, the way she responded to crude comments was brilliant! check this out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxHTtNWdAns

Her comments about fantasizing about women while making love to her boyfriend are actually quite subversive. This is unfortunately, but predictably, lost to the men that are shown reacting to this statement. Our current fetish with lesbians and the idea of bisexual women as being sexual only for the purpose of a male audience removes the power of her statement and the audience is particularly distracted by the men whose faces read "oh lesbian sex is hot"
