One Syracuse performer who told a local media outlet that there were ‘no traces of homophobia, racism or sexism in Syracuse hardcore’ described Perfect Pussy as ‘a bunch of fags’ and implied that he wanted to punch Graves in the face for ‘running her mouth.’
We distract ourselves from death in so many creative ways.
The word lesbian first had been used in the late 19th century to highlight the mutual nurturing and egalitarian companionship that women can bring to each other when they live and work creatively together.
Girls learn to love and have sexual feelings in a position of low status, and the eroticization of powerlessness is a normal part of the construction of femininity.
The voice of White male privilege is the voice of a person who presumes to hold the truth of the universe within.
Asserting that we do not feel ‘safe’ in an atmosphere that values ‘political correctness’ is an expression of the privilege of feeling safe, as those who are marginalized are never safe.

Oh what an ordinary day. Take out the garbage, masturbate.
"When I was about 20 years old, I met an old pastor’s wife who told me that when she was young and had her first child, she didn’t believe in striking children, although spanking kids with a switch pulled from a tree was standard punishment at the time. But one day, when her son was four or five, he did something that she felt warranted a spanking–the first in his life. She told him that he would have to go outside himself and find a switch for her to hit him with.
The boy was gone a long time. And when he came back in, he was crying. He said to her, “Mama, I couldn’t find a switch, but here’s a rock that you can throw at me.”
All of a sudden the mother understood how the situation felt from the child’s point of view: that if my mother wants to hurt me, then it makes no difference what she does it with; she might as well do it with a stone.
And the mother took the boy into her lap and they both cried. Then she laid the rock on a shelf in the kitchen to remind herself forever: never violence. And that is something I think everyone should keep in mind. Because if violence begins in the nursery one can raise children into violence.”
Society provides narrow windows of choice for women.
