I DON'T WANT TO BE GLUED TO ANOTHER

I don’t want to be glued to another…

When I go to the doctor, it should be about my health, not
who I am sleeping with -

When I go to work, it should be about my job, not who I am
sleeping with -

When I go to school, it should be about my class, not who
I am sleeping with -

When I relate to other people, it should be about them and
me, not who I am sleeping with -

When I eat food, it should be about eating, not about who
I am sleeping with -

When I achieve, it should be about me, not who I am sleeping
with -

When I have housing, it should be housing, not about who I am sleeping with -

People need to be allowed to function independently in society, as healthy individuals. Healthy relationships are based on recognizing another’s autonomy. I would like for you to have to go to the doctor, and have it be based on whether or not you are pleasing me. I would like for you to go to work, and have it be based on whether or not you are pleasing me. I would like for you to go to school, and have it be based on pleasing me, not your class. I would like for you to be surrounded by people that do nothing but play mindgames and invade your personal space, and have it be based on pleasing me. I would like for you to have to eat your dinner, while someone is hanging over you watching every bite you take and making you feel guilty for eating it….and relating it somehow to your personal (sex) life. I would like for your basic needs, like medical care, food, shelter, clothing warmth…to be connected to me only, and pleasing me, and if you don’t please me then you can’t have these basic needs.

Artist's Description

This is pretty self-explanatory and direct. It is about sexual abuse, power games, and being in control of one’s own destiny. When we are denied our autonomy, we are also denied ourselves…we become something for others to use and abuse.
