    PDF garden home.co ↠ Pleasure Activism PDF ó pleasure download, activism mobile, Pleasure Activism KindleEnjoyed the last uarter of the book and some essays along the way but felt mostly like a missed opportunity to go deeper into nonsexual pleasures and explore the dynamic nature of pleasure in all kinds of bodies Food in particular felt like a glaring omission in a supposedly fat positive book Also in general lots of assumptions about the universality of sexual experiences and pleasures Missing an understanding of asexuality of disability and of sexual trauma that doesn't just get immediately healed into sexual liberation

    PDF garden home.co ↠ Pleasure Activism PDF ó pleasure download, activism mobile, Pleasure Activism KindleWhat are the main ideas? liberation work must be driven by pleasure not by avoidance of pain or harm many of us doing justice work have forgotten the above we are activated by making things less bad for people including ourselves however if we don’t actually know what pleasure feels like we could fight against bad things forever and never actually know a what liberation feels like and b if we’re actually getting closer if it doesn’t feel good it’s not sustainable period oppressive systems thrive by removing people’s ability to pleasure themselves they create dependency on the system it is liberatory to remember that we can please ourselvesIf I implemented one idea from this book right now which one would it be?freedom and liberation must be measured by how much ple

    PDF garden home.co ↠ Pleasure Activism PDF ó pleasure download, activism mobile, Pleasure Activism KindleThis was a super amazing book non sexual pleasure stuff would have been nice to see but my main issue is small but repeated food moralizing once the literal phrase eating clean what a devastating sentiment to bring to pleasure activism A really distracting bummer to find in 3 separate places in the book but outside of that really really invaluable conversations interviews and short essays around pleasure intent growth dreaming joy and non capitalism based self care

    PDF garden home.co ↠ Pleasure Activism PDF ó pleasure download, activism mobile, Pleasure Activism KindleI had so many positive visceral and cognitive reactions while reading this collection of essays and conversations about pleasure During the first chapter I was wondering aloud have I found my bible? I had never before had so many of my beliefs recognized and expanded upon all in one place Within the first pages the author Adrienne Maree Brown had outlined the Pleasure Principles What you pay attention to grows We become what we practice Yes is the way When I am happy it is good for the world Make justice and liberation feel good Your no makes way for your yes Moderation is keyI was so excited by this list and the explanations of each piece that I was nearly shouting them to anyone who would listen The pleasure the title refers to is usually sexual pleasure and sometimes pleasure from substances relationships and a few other life affirming experiences By the end I personally

    PDF garden home.co ↠ Pleasure Activism PDF ó pleasure download, activism mobile, Pleasure Activism KindlePhenomenal anthology of radical and liberation focused essays Something I have always always appreciated about adrienne maree brown is that she is so invested in the decentralizationdespecialization of knowledge she knows what she knows and that’s a whole lot but she never suggests that she is the most scholarly when it comes to Octavia E Butler speculative fiction Black liberation work or pleasure activism She is ALWAYS thanking her teachers and naming the political legacies in which she believes she continues and I appreciate that so much in a time where social justice work and knowledge is commodified in a particular kind of way that pushes people to prioritize their egos status and standing over the actual work and visions of collective li
