"the discovery is, of course, that 'man 'and 'woman' are fictions, caricatures, cultural constructs. as models, they are reductive, totalitarian, inappropriate to human becoming, as roles they are static, demeaning... dead ended for male and female both. culture legislates those fictive roles as normalcy. deviations from sanctioned sacred behavior are ' gender disorders',' criminality' as well as 'sick', 'disgusting', and 'immoral'. heterosexuality, which is properly defined as the ritualized behavior built on polar role definition and the social insititutions related to it... are ' human nature'. homosexuality, transexuality...persist as 'perversions' of this 'human nature' we presume to know so much about. they persist despite the overwhelming forces marshalled against them- discriminatory laws and social practices, ostracism, active persecution by the state and other organs of culture- as inexplicable ,'embarrassments', as 'odious' examples of 'filth', and / or ' maladjustment' . the attempt, here, however modest and incomplete, is to discern another ontology, one which discards the fiction that there are two polar distinct sexes."- "androgyny , fucking, and community"- andrea dworkin
oh dont know what ontology means? it's because you're a tool, tool.
" there is a misery of the body and a misery of the mind, and if the stars, whenever we looked at them, poured nectar into our mouths, and the grass became bread. we would still be sad. we live in a system that manufactures sorrow, spilling it out of it's mill. the waters of sorrow, ocean. storm and we drown dead too soon." - julian beck- the life of the theatre.

miserable people, with no self esteem, who are unhappy with themselves, want you to be miserable and unhappy with yourself too and that's just not going to happen.
as long as i stay in the good graces of the cats, that's really all that matters. they are closer to the beautiful Friend.
