About The Pink Ghetto

The Pink Ghetto by Lux Nightmare is getting lots of blog attentions ~ for damn obvious reasons. Here's one of my favorite quotes from that piece:

"Trying to build your life, your career, around a discussion of sex means accepting that you will always have a fringe identity. That no matter how academic, how smart, how clean you keep it, you will always be on the edges of polite society. You will always be in the Pink Ghetto, and you will never be able to escape it."

It's part of why I speak often about such issues as sex education and the problems with being a person (especially a female) who works in, writes about or cares about human sexuality. Just ask me, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Gwen Masters, or Chelsea Girl.

The fact that writing about sex is controversial in any way is another reason I have this blog: because there's little support and few warn those with interests of the realities (or smack them upside the head when they are idiots). I might as well take on the cause.

As for the immediate problem of you being able to read or access this information while at work, please read Chelsea Girl's sticking it to the man's censoring server.

Personally, I think of it more as the Scarlet Letter Ghetto, but Pink Ghetto is catchier and nicer.
