Tree of Knowledge – #SinfulSunday #MasturbationMonday

posted by LSB April 18, 2020 21 Comments

“Give me the storm and tempest of thought and action, rather than the dead calm of ignorance and faith! Banish me from Eden when you will; but first let me eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge!”

― Robert G. Ingersoll

Oh god, how true is that quote right now? I think all any of us can do is leap up and take a bite from the tree of knowledge. In light of what is currently rippling through the blogging community – I urge you to reach out and learn.

If you want some inspiration and are unsure where to look, check out these folks for starters

I have been watching Anne’s videos and have been learning so much from them. I think because the language used to describe gender is constantly evolving and because none of us know everything, it is worth taking a peek and educating yourself. You have nothing to lose by respecting someone enough to use their pronouns.

I know myself, I have tried to be aware of how I gender someone when I speak especially via text. When in doubt, I try to look and see and if I don’t see someone’s pronouns, I reach out and ask or sometimes will change my wording so not to misgender them.

I know when talks of they/their came about originally to me, I will admit and hold my hands straight up to being confused. Mainly because those words were associated with being plural and well, I was only seeing one person. I now understand how gender fluidity and non-binary works but that was because I made the effort to educate myself. #TransRightsAreHumanRights 

(also thanks to Quinn and Quenby for their help with this post).

 

an image of me, naked and outdoors by beauiful trees leaping up to try and reach a branch. Image is titled tree of knowledge

This image was taken the same day as the one above and happens to be one of my most favourite images on my blog.

Are you reaching for something in particular? I love that you’re jumping and that the picture captured you ‘frozen’ in the air. It looks nice how you’re surrounded by the vibrant green of nature like that

I’m not! My OH actually took this image and at one point shouted “jump as if you are reaching to get a piece of fruit you can’t reach”. I found the quote and it got me thinking…. so that’s how the post came about!

I admire your pusuit of knowledge, but be careful as there are a lot of (female) babies being thrown out with bathwater in this debate, and it is an active debate however much trans-activists wish to close it down. Listen to both sides of the argument.

While you feel this is an active debate, I beg to differ really!

I am interested as to why you specifically said “female babies”

Naked in nature, the perfect combo!

I love this picture, it almost looks like you’re levitating! (But maybe you were mid-jump?)

I’m mid- jump – I love the idea of levitating though. Totally fits in with my witchy vibes x

I love this image, it looks like you had so much fun taking it, although maybe not as much fun as your other half. But your words are so true, language and people are constantly evolving, we need to keep learning and evolving too,

Looks like you’re floating in mid-air! Love the picture and also really glad I read the text along with it. Thanks for that as well.

Your words absolutely spot on. Learning is so important and you naked in the bushes is sooooo distracting
