Our conversation in class left me wondering, can 👨🏚 at Bowdoin be 🤗? Or are they inherently exclusive, and therefore, subordinate some? Off campus housing is an interesting concept at 🎒. It’s a way for groups to create community and escape a 🎒 culture they may not want to be a part of. Some of these off-campus houses may function as 👨🏚, maybe even some as she-sheds? But, as great as these places are for some, they may be exclusionary and even dangerous for others. But is it fair for us to say all 👨🏚 are bad and shouldn’t exist? Or maybe we should look to 🎒, and wonder why people are leaving off campus to create a better community for themselves…
👨🏚 = mancaves
🤗 = inclusive
🎒 = Bowdoin
The discussion that evolved from my expert question concerned a 👩’s agency vs. perceived agency. Is personal autonomy real if it depends on your subordination?
How can this effect a 👩’s relationship with 👨 and with 🖥? We also discussed 🗽 and 🖥. Can 🖥 or sex work be 💪? People were divided. I …
think that as a profession one consents to, it can be 💪. There are examples (The Netherlands, for one) that show how sex work can be predominately successful
and have a place within the economy. But, historically sex work was among few jobs available to low income, cis 👩 of 🏽 and trans 👩 of 🏽.
I was left questioning, what do we culturally deem as “💪”? Perhaps we are looking at this from a narrow, Western lens of liberation…
👩 – woman
👨 – men
🗽 – liberation
🖥 – porn
💪 – empowering
🏽 – color
