Awareness via MTV?

December 8, 2010 at 5:34 pm (Gender, Culture and Female Sexuality., Thoughts of our MRKH Sisters.)

The premiere of the MTV True Life Episode entitled “I can’t have sex” was last night. Because I live in Canada, I’m not able to get access to the link. So for those of you who live in the States, in case you missed the episode, here is the link:

An interesting historical perspective.

December 6, 2010 at 11:58 pm (Dilation therapy., Gender, Culture and Female Sexuality.)

I had a really interesting email from a reader who pointed me to this cartoon. The source of this cartoon described: the main joke [ which] was that it was not expected or approved behavior at the time for women to have their legs widely spread apart in public for any reason. In other words, the sailor is commenting on her manner of riding, rather than the direction she is going; and the pun on the place name “Stretchit” with “to stretch it”, implying that riding in such a way would stretch the woman’s vagina.

In case you cannot see it clearly, the woman is saying: “Pray is this the way to stretchit?” to which the sailor says: “Shiver my top-sails, my Lass, if I know a better way.”

Changing perceptions.

December 6, 2010 at 2:02 am (The Mental Health Field.)

The reason why I chose to post this video was because although it is NOT directly related to MRKH, it does show that individuals have the power to create social change in different ways. For now, our condition is on the cusp of being regarded a certain way. With regards to the heated intersex debate, stigma played into the views some of us expressed. Specifically, the implications of what it is to be intersex. Maybe one day, we too can change the way people perceive our condition. This all relates to the gender issue, however mildly we connected we are to it.

This clip was brought to my attention by a very good friend of mine. I saw it as extremely powerful/valuable and I hope you see it that way too. It was created by Laura Burke, who continues to struggle with schizophrenia. She advocates for people living with mental illness via drama therapy. Enjoy!
