Project 1: I was told my objection to manure was a relic of my, and I quote, ‘soft city life.” I told them to spend a summer riding the subway and get back to me on smells.


Project 2: "Only in the corner, in a small box, was there notice of unrest between several “anxious young men” over “matters political.” But it did not say what those matters had been, nor how it had been resolved."

An Unpopular Sentiment

I’m waiting for some developmental biologist to come up with a theory that the real reason Homo Sapiens evolved intelligence has to do with the unique nature of female human sexuality.

Human females have relatively low-key estrus cycles compared to most other animals, and I believe we’re the only animal in which the female of the species routinely orgasms.

These are two significant distinctions.

And if my developmental biologist would only hurry up and invent the theory, then we could make the argument that male sexual predation is actually a function of stupidity because the two variations on sexual behavior described above mean that Homo Sapiens actually evolved so that women could choose their men they have sex with.

Till then, though, we are forced to accept the premise that the male sexual instinct in all animals is a form of biologically predetermined predation. And that if you mess with it, at some not-so-distant future date, it will seek to exist.

###

I say this after coming back from a blessed three-day interval of no social media whatsoever – my new phone broke while I was in Connecticut – to find Facebook awash in female friends proclaiming Me Too.

I found this incredibly annoying, though I’m not entirely sure why.

I mean, Yeah! Sure. I could write, Me Too. I’ve dealt with a huge amount of unwanted sexual attention over the course of a lifetime, attention that ranged from unsolicited advances to violent assaults with lots of grey areas in between. Was it a drag? In most instances, yes, although I’ve managed to turn all but the times I was threatened at knifepoint into humorous anecdotes in the ex post facto. It’s hard to turn Fuck me, or I’ll kill you into a humorous anecdote.

But what the hell does writing about it on Facebook or Twitter accomplish except to help drive ad revenues on Facebook and Twitter? Has social media become the 21st century equivalent of a church congregation where people are infused with testimonial vigor, and we all shout, Yes, yes, I believe to our computer screens while we sit in empty rooms?

UGH.

Just ugh.

The march on Washington - which I was prompted to participate in because of Trump's pussy-grabbing monologue -- was an act of defiance. Writing Me too! on Facebook is an exercise in group masturbation.

###

Lots of things are happening but that’s really all I have time to write about today.

Picture is from the weekend in Connecticut. I can barely bring myself to look at pictures of myself anymore; all I see is that slackness around my jaw. But it’s a nice shot of Max.

([personal profile] china_shop posted about the origin of her name (see: the lyrics of You Had Time by Ani DiFranco), and it's exam time for me now, and this is my exam regret song, so it seems appropriate to listen to it now xD)

i'm not entirely fond of the piano intro of this song - the piano sounds high-pitched somehow, and i have a long dislike for high-pitched sounds - but overall, it sets the tone for the rest of the song quite well.

this song takes its time (heh) and is soft and mournful and the lyrics are sharper than needles and it is my kind of song.

exams are nigh )

New life goal: to make Carrie Fisher's ghost cackle with pride in me.

"Even after her death Carrie Fisher is having none of your bullshit. 

 

Heather Ross, a friend of Fisher's, spoke to a local radio station in Tucson, AZ. about her experience with sexual assault in Hollywood. On the 94.9 Morning Mix, Ross recalled inappropriate advances from a big name producer and how Fisher made clear she had a zero-tolerance policy for that kind of behavior.

After Ross was assaulted by "an Oscar-winning producer" – not Weinstein, but another – Fisher was furious. After the initial shock and fear wore off, Fisher ran into the producer at Sony and delivered him a package.

"It was a cow tongue from Jerry’s Famous Deli with a note that said, ‘If you ever touch my darling Heather or any other woman again, the next delivery will be something of yours in a much smaller box.’”

The cow tongue was all Fisher's idea, natch, and she made sure to deliver it in person and watch him open the box."

Deletions and Erasures

1) So hello, I'm back from my trip! ::waves:: I didn't take a whole lot of photos this time but do have a few to share. Read more... )

2) This is rather late now but a side benefit to having a romance-only bookstore is that the owners have a additional incentive to research the stats on romances written by POC.

3) Every piece of software needs to have a giant undo option somewhere. It seems like stuff is constantly crammed into software that maybe 50 people across the globe actually use regularly and everyone else is stymied or tripped up by it. I was typing away on an email, three paragraphs in and I've no idea what a finger hit but suddenly the entire text just vanished. I thought maybe it had somehow been cut by accident but when I tried paste, nope, not there. ARGH!

4) For the probably 2 people actually reading any of my dissertation deleted scenes, here's another bit to share. On a section about conceptual frameworks, the following was cut because it got discussed in a later chapter. But this example described a way of interpreting interactions within the group.
