with my queer ecofeminism paper. I’ve never loved a paper topic so much.
People are uncomfortable with sexuality that’s not for male consumption.

Of course! Ecofeminism is the belief that women and nature are bonded by their oppression from men. Both have been taken advantage of by men—nature has been exploited by man since the beginning of time and women have been oppressed by being the “lesser sex.” With this mentality ecofeminists believe that women should take care of the earth since it is oppressed just like them.
‘You do not need to change your body; you need to change the rules.’ Naomi Wolf
Recognize that when it comes to our bodies, there are no rules.
Your body is like a fingerprint.
Unique in size, shape and color, it carries curves and bends that cannot be replicated by any body, anywhere.
It embraces unrepeatable patterns of freckles and lines.
Your scars are not imperfections, they tell your story.
This is your genetic blue print; one of a kind, and beautiful in all it’s authenticity.
One opinion of beauty does not have the power to discount the rest.
There is no single beautiful body type, and therefore the confines and constraints of these so called “rules” we allow ourselves to be defined by, do not exist.
It’s time to redefine beauty.
Time to break the rules.
Time to let them go.
It’s time to be free.” —
