Feeling discouraged? This may help may help you feel all is not lost - and what we have is worth fighting for. TL;DR: things are way far better for the majority of people than they were 200 or even 150 years ago. And markedly better than they were 50 years ago.

That's pretty cool. 
Trigger warning porn has arrived! 🙌🙌🙌

Excerpt: If you watch porn, you've probably experienced it; browsing for something that appeals to you sexually, and instead opening up something way more sinister. For victims of rape or sexual assault, the risk is even greater. If sex has been used as a weapon against you, the last thing you want to see is something that reminds you of that violence and trauma.

The Clit List is a new, online database of feminist porn aimed at helping women reclaim their bodies after sexual assault. "We really felt something like this was needed," says Pavan Amara, whose organization My Body Back is behind the project. Amara was raped as a teenager, and says that, after it happened, she wanted a place to talk about how the experience impacted her sexually. So in 2014, she set up My Body Back, which holds workshops where survivors of sexual assault can discuss "things like masturbation, how to feel in control sexually again, and how to figure out what you like and don't like."

One issue that kept coming up was porn. "These women wanted to be able to explore their sexuality in a safe way," says Amara. "But what ended up happening is that they'd try and do that with porn, and they'd just come across misogynistic, violent, horrible stuff that replicated what had happened to them, or showed rape as though it were normal. I thought, This is obviously a problem we should do something about, so we created a list of porn that women can safely watch—with no violence, that won't make us feel degraded."
