That's "relationships" in the narrower sense, the sexual/romantic/stufflikethat kind. It's a take on [livejournal.com profile] jfpbookworm's phrase "feminist-positive sex".

I don't have much ruminating to do on the subject today, but I expect I'll have a good bit in future, because I have just such a relationship to ruminate about - the first time I've been in a relationship explicitly based on feminist principles. At this point, and for the foreseeable future, it's an LDR, since JFP and I have c2000 miles (it sounds even worse in kilometres, so do your own converting if you want that figure) and an international border between us.

This is also likely to lead to more polyamory blogging (which I want to do in any case) - I won't go so far as to say that I won't do a monogamous relationship ever, but I'd have to have pretty strong reasons. Fortunately, that's not a relevant concern in this case.

I won't do an extensive "this is JFP" introduction; the curious can follow the trail of linky breadcrumbs, But I will mention, because I know [livejournal.com profile] jenett will be interested, that he's about to start on his MLS, with an eventual plan of being a law librarian.

The "how this came to be" story is a post on feminist (at any rate, woman-with-agency) relationship development in itself, so I'll save that for another time.

Given the job market, I should not say "Yay, more librarians in the world!" But despite the job market, I think more librarians is a good thing. Yay, more librarians!

I look forward to the stories, mind you.

I already said this at my place, but I'm pleased that both of you are having fun exploring - well, wherever this take you. :-) I also want to hear how you guys flesh out the idea of "feminist-positive sex." (Hmmm, that double entendre wasn't planned - oops!)

Warmly,
Sungold

Heh, I'm curious about the story. :)

Yay, woman-with-agency relationships. I think relationships between people standing in their power are officially Damn Sexy.

Why thank you!

And yes, he will most definitely call me on my shit when necessary. :) Which is appreciated, although not always at the time. :)
