The year 2018 had the highest highs and lowest lows of my life. I won’t go into all of those specifics; but suffice to say, I am so glad 2018 is over! Lots of experiences and lessons came up in 2018….
Not a traditional New Year’s Day Southern lunch (or dinner, as my father calls “lunch”), but I’m grateful for food & a kitchen to cook it in.
Men, I love you. I really do. While I am not surprised at the affinity every man has for his penis, I am constantly amazed at the vast majority of men who do not know the difference between the words “girth” and “width”. Men, should you find yourself wandering the lonely lanes of bookshelves at […]
It’s been quite a while since I posted blogs on a regular basis. So much has happened in the past few years, I wasn’t sure what I should share openly – which is kinda laughable if you’ve read my DailyOJ posts. But what I’ve been through in the past year-and-a-half, in particular, has been one […]
Anyone who has entered a singing competition has encountered the “Do Not Sing” list, a collection of songs forbidden by the judging panel. These tunes are called “low, hanging fruit” because they are too common, too easy, or simply unwanted. Much like the unwanted “Do Not Sing” outcasts, women’s breasts rarely meet society’s and media’s […]
Copyright 2016 by Trish Causey. While riding the bus to the store recently, I overhead a man talking politics to two other men. The first man remarked that he didn’t like Hillary Clinton because she was always mad. “She’s full of rage!” he exclaimed, waving his arms. I butted in, of course, and said, 1) […]
Copyright 2016 by Trish Causey. On Facebook, my friends and I were commenting on a picture I had posted of a sign-waving evangelical spouting gloom and doom for those of us who are freethinkers; then we were conversing about a photo of Hillary Clinton. As the conversation unfolded onto other topics, one person commented that […]
Copyright 2016 by Trish Causey. If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, no more is that sentiment apropos than when it comes to being sexual and sensual. With media trying to convince us to look this way or wear that size clothing for others’ outward approval, culture maintains a centuries’-old negative stigma about […]
Last night on Pornhub (which is how I’m starting every conversation from now on), I was trying to find videos that showed women of average size enjoying sex — and by sex, I do not mean the horrid gang-bang. To find women of average size, you have to look for them. And look hard. The […]
Hard to believe, but ArousedWoman (as well as this blog!) turns 4 today. After four years of pressing the buttons of narrow-minded misogynists while extolling the virtues of women’s rights and women’s sexuality, ArousedWoman has even more to share, teach, and accomplish in an effort to help create a society that values women, our basic […]
The past 48 hours have been a whirlwind for activists and fake Christians around America as Kentucky clerk Kim Davis has defied federal law by not issuing marriage licenses to gay couples in her district. An elected official, Davis told prospective couples she would not issue any marriage licenses to LGBT couples because it went […]
8:41 p.m. September 10, 2005. I stood in the street with my neighbors as out-of-state electricians repaired the transformer. We had been without power since 5:13 a.m., August 29, 2005, the morning Hurricane Katrina devastated the Mississippi Gulf Coast with its direct hit. Eight miles inland and buffered by Interstate-10, our homes in the Orange […]
Wow! Has it really been 300 blog posts — already?! I still can’t believe I just passed 3 years of doing ArousedWoman. And to think I’ve now written 300 articles, posts, reviews, and rants about women’s sexuality and activism is just amazing. That’s 300 posts over 3 years, which equals 100 per year, or about […]
The last two minutes of Sunday’s “Game of Thrones” finale sent the internet into a frenzy as Jon Snow succumbed to an “Et tu, Brute`” ending. And yet, no one is talking about the beatings of the women in the finale, Cersei’s solo walk of shame, or the systematic abuse and rape of women throughout […]
The former Bruce Jenner was an Olympian and respected personality. The new Caitlyn Jenner is fodder for media outlets to either extol her bravery or ridicule her journey to what is still considered weak and inferior — being a woman. Like many others, I posted the Vanity Fair cover on my Facebook wall, and comments […]
