My Body Is Mine

My body is mine. All mine.

It is my domain into which none may enter without my explicit and enthusiastic consent.

My sexuality is mine, and the things that attract and excite me. My desire is mine—who I want to fuck and how often, whether I want to fuck in the first place, and how. Who I want to love, and let love me.

My healthcare choices are my own, along with the decisions about what foods and drinks and drugs, legal and less so. How my body is best nourished is a decision that belongs to me.

Because I am an adult woman who fervently believes in the radical notion that my body is mine.
