Not a big draw. I sat there for 30 minutes, alone. And with all this talk about baby making, and not one micha member. Bwah Bwah.

I wrote notes on how planned parenthood is being demonized and Breasts. Breast feeding and female nipples being illegal. What happens if we legalize our own body parts. In a world where women politicians are censured for saying the word vagina… But men politicians can be extra inappropriate and still be considered viable, political players in America.
So at one point I looked over at Stephen Adly Guirgis, who stopped by the table, and said “I don’t’ get it, I thought sex would be a good draw”.. Surprize!!! I was concerned that the topic introduced by a mysterious, and pleasant looking man, called. “ MY senses are Tingling” got 6 or so people and I got no one.

We had a discussion about the history of fear and hatred around women, and also the lack of support from both men and women around the archetype of successful happy about sex women. And how the subject matter of feminism seems to turn people off. But if I were to ask the participants if it was because of the subject matter, that they decided to skip it, they’d probably say “no”.

That this bias comes very insidiously, and just like other ethnic groups, they can tend to splinter into sub-sections that don’t support each other. The oppressed turning on each other instead of supporting one another. In America this is very ingrained in our society.

We opened a dialogue about personal experience say of auto biography, being rather indulgent if just for its own sake, but if the form is written of the self but not all about the self. Forming the personal story can create a piece that speaks to the world, from the message that comes out of the personal story. Or the story becomes formed in such a way as to craft a bigger message, that it can be a satisfying, creative, personal biography/or story telling that is molded into the universal message. Very inspiring. And a lively dialogue. Great session.
