The Hypersexualization of Women With Bipolar Disorder: Breaking Silences Day 3

The Hypersexualization of Women With Bipolar Disorder: Breaking Silences Day 3 | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it
Most of the academic and popular literature on sexuality and disability focuses on how disabled people are desexualized, or seen as nonsexual. Meghann and Hailee mentioned several writers and theories; one term that was new to me (though the idea is familiar) was Harlan Hahn’s concept of “asexual objectification.” This is the idea that disabled women, disabled people of any gender really, are seen as things that don’t have a sexuality – in the most extreme cases, as things that don’t have a humanity. IN a session I went to earlier in the week, asexuality was presented as a sexual orientation, a way someone relates to their own sexuality, so I use the terms desexualization or nonsexual instead. I’m hoping Meghann and Hailee will mention this in their literature review. Maybe Hahn’s term can be updated to “nonsexual objectification.” That still contrasts attitudes towards disabled people with the ways North Ameerican cultures tend to sexually objectify people.

(here’s more information on the theory of asexual objectification.

These theories usually describe the experiences of people with visible physical disabilities.

Women diagnosed with mental illness, especially bipolar disorder, are instead seen as hypersexual. “Hypersexuality” is one of the bipolar disorder symptoms listed in the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual), the diagnostic tool most often used by psychiatrists and other mental health practitioners in the United States. There’s no definition of “normal” sexuality to go along with that. For that matter, there’s not really a definition of hypersexuality beyond evaluating behaviours like how many partners a patient or client has had, or how frequently they’re engaging in sexual behaviours.

So, each mental health practitioner makes their own judgments about what is normal, and how or whether their patient or clients deviate f

Gracie Passette's insight:

Like @Deanna Dahlsad said, "ARRRG! Now there's birth control shaming?! Now we don't see access to birth control as a choice?! Shit, I thought that narrow vision was gone & in my lifetime we'd get people to see abortion as a choice... Now this?! *sigh*"

A Sexy GoPro Gyno Vibe?!

A Sexy GoPro Gyno Vibe?! | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it

I recall vividly being asked during the exam if I wanted to see my cervix. I was aghast. But then, as now, I opted to handle the awkwardness with a witty retort. Instead of simply saying, “No, thanks,” I said, “I think if I was supposed to see that, I’d have mirrors on the end of my fingertips.”I’m sure my blushing said more than my words; but in any case, she left it at that.


I’ve matured a lot since then. But I’ve still no desire to see inside my genitalia. To me, that’s about as sexy as seeing inside a man’s urethra. Let’s leave a little mystery, OK? However, Svakom, a Chinese company, has other ideas…

Menstrual Hygiene Day Links Periods and Human Rights | Womens eNews | Let's Get Sex Positive | Scoop.it
Handling periods (or 'menstrual hygiene management' as experts call it) isn't the first thing one might associate with human rights. Yet the link between realization of rights for women and girls and menstrual hygiene management could not be clearer.
