Sexuality and disability: interviews and ideas for a sociological study

Originally posted on flipout4ms:

The “presumption” of ‘heterosexuality that prevails in our society also pervades in the literature regarding the link between sexuality and physical disabilities, including multiple sclerosis. It will therefore be very difficult for those of you who have a diagnosis of MS and are gay to find something written about the problems and sexual needs of gay men and women with disabilities. Thirty years ago it was literally impossible to find any information in this regard, and unfortunately, the situation is only slightly improved nowadays. In fact, although there is an extensive list of articles in literature relating to homosexual relationships, I found very little information on the relationship between disabled people and gays and lesbians in general, and nothing specifically about gay people with MS.

‘I don’t know. Let’s just go and check!’

X is 16 now and it was one of those Saturdays which she spent at home watching stupid blockbuster movies with M.

A un’ora dal tramonto, verso metà luglio, il brutto omicidio di Cecilia La Nera fece il suo ingresso nella contea di Trenno. Sul bordo del Santa Giustina, un fiume che passa da quelle parti.
La sera prima qualcuno se l’era sostanzialmente scopata di soppiatto dalla giustizia e dalla moglie e, lo stesso tizio che raggiunse l’orgasmo, forse si convinse di poterle far passare le emorroidi con una sega. Di sicuro, lo spezzatino del corpo ci fu. Un’atrocità del tutto sproporzionata per la popolazione locale, anche. Mentre della motivazione non si poteva esserne certi.
Lo sbirro del luogo, uno che per baciare sua moglie avrebbe dovuto procurarsi la macchina del tempo, visto che gliel’avevano ammazzata da un anno, per strada, in bicicletta, si fece…

walk on earth

Usually we think it is a miracle to walk on water or in the air. I believe instead that the real miracle is to walk on earth. Everydaydumb.

.Di solito si pensa che sia un miracolo camminare sull’acqua o nell’aria. Io credo invece che il vero miracolo sia camminare sulla terra. Ogni giorno.
