Self-proclaimed 4th wave feminist Rachel Joravsky published a piece on Reductress last week explaining how she handles unwanted touching from men at the club. I’ll let her tell you in her own words, “As the latest wave of feminism, our politics have evolved. We had the sister suffragettes on the picket line, Gloria Steinem wielding her pen, the riot grrrls of the 90s, but what I am suggesting today is the ultimate reclamation of body in a space that is unequivocally patriarchal. This is the next generation of feminism. This is dick-farting in the club.”
Holy shit! My only criticism of this technique is self-directed because I’m upset that I didn’t think of this sooner – I feel my 20’s were wasted not farting on dicks at the club. Rachel continues, “We’ve all lived it: We roll up with our girls and these men, these boorish brutes, they grab at us as if it is their right, humping our bodies like we’re an erection-facilitating puppet. I’m crying out to you sisters, take back the night! I have taken back my sacred space, one juicy rip at a time.”
Looks like I’m going to have to start incorporating some meat back into my diet if I’m going to, “Let it turn your stomach into the ultimate weapon—a mechanism of power that will leave him saying, “Did the bass just drop, or did that bitch just fart on my dick?” To which we will hold our heads high and scream proudly from the mountaintops, Yes. Yes. This bitch just farted. On yo’ dick!”
Never thought I’d be saying this, but I officially can’t wait to become the next victim of unsolicited dry-humping so I can try this out! Thank you Rachel for sharing your innovative techniques so openly – what a time to be alive!!
