That was not a belly rub. It looked more like she gave her p*ssy a little ‘pop’. Lots of women signers are doing it lately. This one was just very modest.

Thank you. I feel that outrage culture is the primary energy that is robbing us of any kind of reasonable conversation on this (and other) topics. And for the South Eastern Asians who have misgivings ..... I would feel honored to hear their ‘personal’ stories (as you shared yours), in order to further understand the Read more

Here is a radical notion. Don’t create media of yourself doing sexually explicit X,Y,Z with someone, anyone... everyone? Read more
