Night after the Courtney Love concert me, Bella, Jenn and Ronna all got matching Hole symbol tattoos, we figured because we were medium wasted and Ronna had never done stick-n-pokes before it would be totally fine, and it was.

It’s totally fine you guys I got this

— Questions To Ask Your Prospective Therapist (LGBT+ inclusive)

Found this while looking for a shrink - it could be expanded on the gender front, but hope it’s at least a good starting point for someone!

The therapist may not always answer the question, but you will get a sense of how they respond to you, even if you don’t get a direct answer.

Adapted from It’s Your Hour: a guide to queer-affirmative psychotherapy by Bettinger, M. Alyson Books, 2001.

Attitude Toward Queerness

  • Do you believe in love between two people of the same sex?

  • Are you willing to consult with other mental health or medical professionals with whom I have worked?
  • Do you consult with other professionals regarding individuals on your caseload?
  • How do you safeguard my right to confidentiality in those situations?
  • Are you willing or able to see my family members or life partner if that should seem necessary?
  • If so, can or should I be present?
  • Will you ever meet with them without my being present?
  • Have you ever been sued for malpractice?
  • What was the outcome of that lawsuit?

Business Practices

  • What is your fee?

— The Time I Violated my Girlfriend’s Consent

plumbat:

I posted this on Fetlife a few days ago (one of the rare times I wrote something long there instead of here), and am cross-posting it by request so that it will be shareable for folks not on FL.

*

We were 16. We’d been dating for a few weeks. I was SO enamored of her.

We were alone together in her room for the first time. We started kissing. I was excited. She looked nervous. I thought she was just shy. I thought that she must want this as much as I did, but just had less experience and didn’t know where to start. I took her hands and placed them on my breasts. And then I kept going. I made all the moves. It stayed mostly above the waist. At some point we had to stop for some reason — I think maybe it was just time for me to go, I don’t really remember — and we stopped.

I had a bounce in my step the next day. We’d shared something special! I couldn’t wait to do it again. And then she confessed to me that she hadn’t wanted it. That I’d pushed her way past what she was comfortable with, and she hadn’t known how to say no.

— So I’m trying to find a (queer friendly) therapist.

I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS.

  • what exactly do you mean by “sex therapy”
  • what the fuck is this and why is it in your profile
  • why
  • I also receive referrals from The Jeremy Kyle show.”
  • I also offer ongoing therapy for counselling students in training at a reduced fee.” 
  • Counselling acts like a conductor, bringing different musicians together in an orchestra.”
  • "I also work with Boarding School Syndrome - a set of learned behaviours, defences and discontents that follow growing up in boarding school.” 
  • Apparently they like Ikea chairs. I have this Ikea chair. The therapist it didn’t work out with also had them. They all fucking have those chairs.
  • This is the picture you choose to use for your profile?
  • "Be the change that you want to see. " Gandhi (at least quote it right)

passivemanipulations:

Project for my Social Psych class last semester. This poster series was created to 1) challenge these internalized stereotypes by bringing them to the viewer’s attention and 2) expand the range of role models by including a diverse group of women. Each poster follows the same basic pattern: a woman who has demonstrated her competency in a particular area refutes the stereotype that appears above her in the form of “Girls can’t …”. While the posters target girls ranging from children to young adults, I expect the message would also cause people outside that demographic to question their own beliefs about women and power.  I designed each aspect of the posters with several principles of social psychology in mind:
