A few weeks ago some folks put their heads together and came up with a community-building meme called Share Our Shit Saturdays. It was in response to censorship among the major hosting and social-media platforms against sex- and body-positive images and content.
Patreon kicked out its adult content makers, IG has a long-standing battle against the female form and anything remotely hinting at sexuality, Facebook hates nipples. Years ago many of us older bloggers jumped the WordPress ship and started self-hosting after some of our friends were wiped out completely with no notice; years’ of work lost in a single algorithmic button-press.
The idea behind #SOSS is that if we all do our part to share what we love then we will circumvent the institutionalized censorship we’re otherwise powerless to prevent. Admittedly I’m not a huge reader of blogs (I have 5 or 6 that I routinely follow up on), but I promise that when one (or more) really makes me feel something I will share it here, which brings me to Cara.
A seemingly innocuous post about her year in review brought tears to my eyes. Her [long] list of accomplishments notwithstanding, it was her omission of the love that has entered her life that really moved me and Michael’s loving spotlight on it. I just love it when Cara writes about herself.
Another post that caught my cold, black heart was Fern’s letter to Sunshine, the man she spent the New Year with. As I explore my own dominance with a young man I lean on Ferns to be my Fairy Domme-mother and I love the heart and logic which drips from all her words about her experiences.
Love you all. Enjoy.
