Reading the reactions to Michelle Goldberg’s sloppy-ass New Yorker piece on transgenderism and so-called radical feminists.
Can you imagine where we’d be as a species and a world if we didn’t waste so much time on shit that really shouldn’t be a problem? 
It’s been thousands of years, guys. Thousands of years of racism, misogyny, prejudice of all kinds. How are we still getting these things wrong? How are we still like, having to fight for the rights of non-binary gender persons? How? How? How is this?
Thousands of years, guys. Thousands of years and we still haven’t gotten past this stupid bullshit. Thousands of years and we are still ruled by fucking half-baked nonsensical ideas about what good people should look like, what bodies they should have, which labels and rules they should submit to. 
BRB dudes, off to write a story set in a utopian alternate human reality where it never occurred to us to be such assholes because we were busy doing math and exploring space and respecting the planet and inventing crazy awesome shit.  
SIGH

The friendliest reaction I’m now capable of when strangers speak to me in public.

So if a man writes about the same subject as a woman, I think it’s edited differently, I think it’s marketed differently, I think the covers are different. It really does affect the way that it ends up going. So yes, it’s a good thing to talk about who’s getting reviewed, but I also think it’s important to talk about who’s being published and how are they being published. Are we putting a sort of lilac cover with a flower on the cover because it’s now girly and then are we making the man’s cover look like it’s just great literature?

You are the one
I am lit for.

Come with your rod
that twists
and is a serpent.

Lucille Clifton, “To a Dark Moses”

I once fell for a guy because he had a glass ashtray on the edge of his bathtub. When I pictured him naked, soaking and smoking I went weak. His apartment smelled like cedar. God it was hard to get away from that one.

I like someone who is a little crazy but coming from a good place. I think scars are sexy because it means you made a mistake that led to a mess.
