Lady Cheeky is presenting Does This Panel Make Me Look Fat?: Body Image and Sexuality. Check out Lady Cheeky’s bio here.
How do you see yourself as a catalyst for change?
I think anyone is a catalyst for change who actively pursues being a part of the discussion about how to change an outmoded ideal. Hopefully, this pursuit never ends but becomes more passionate with each endeavor.
Who or what was a catalyst for you?
My blogs. Being able to express myself, unexpurgated gave me the freedom to make significant changes in my life.
What do you feel are some of the biggest challenges or concerns facing us in the field of sexuality right now?
Getting the meme out to the world that sexuality is as natural as breathing in a way that doesn’t seem preachy or “woo-woo” so that people from all walks of life can understand it.
What do you feel are some of the most important/valuable positive changes that have been made in the world of sexuality in the past year?
The interest of women that their sensuality, not just their sexuality is a right worth fighting for.
Why do you feel it is important to bring the topic of your session, Does This Panel Make Me Look Fat?: Body Image and Sexuality, to CatalystCon East?
Because women need to be aware in this media rich society, that the size of your body doesn’t mean you don’t have the right to be sexually fulfilled. Body image and sexuality are not mutually exclusive.
Share one unknown (or little known) fact about yourself.
