Obligatory disclaimer: This is a comic. It includes generalizations. Obviously there is significant variation among both prudes and feminists, and occasionally overlap between them.
I have, though, quite frequently seen the two confused. And I decided that "sex positive" and "sex negative" don't do enough to describe the difference between them, so thought it would help to articulate those differences a bit more.
I know it can be confusing, the fact that both a prude and a feminist are likely to object to the following:
- Being harassed on the street (or at work, or anywhere else)
- Being exposed to porn without having expressed any interest in such
- Depictions of rape, jokes about rape, rape itself
However, the beliefs underlying the objections to these things are often quite different, which is not limited to the fact that the prude might have to first examine whether to hold herself responsible for acts such as harassment and rape based on her own immodest dress or actions before speaking out against them.
So here's a guide to some key distinctions-- when confused, consult this handy chart. Good luck!
