Fortunes be-not

But be again

Correction on correction

Truth on truth

From an unseen disgusting hideaway.

Our comments benign and our effects endless, harrowing, beautiful yet there is some bizarre pain to the beauty.

Ah, beauty,

And once again we return to that cliche, 

Bitter cyncism, 

Hide your romance young man, it has no place in the blogosphere or “democracy” of the internet.

Democracy is like reality, its never really existed.

And each thought is a fluid until it is a word.

And now it bows, in yogic transience, upon completetion.

The completetion of abandoning completion. 

The shows of my youth make me feel unclean as an adult (a confession)

When I was 12 I loved the Cosby Show. When I was 13 I enjoyed the Girls Next Door and revered men like Hugh Hefner.

Bill Cosby, the “family” comedian is a serial rapist, and appaerently Holly Madison was so miserable with Hugh Hefner and he was so manipulative that she wanted to kill herself. 

Can I have those hours I spent watching these shows back? I keep trying to scrub the shame off but they don’t make water hot enough.  

Let me also say that we as a culture need to stop enabling our entertainers to treat women like objects simply because we at one point enjoyed their work.  The fact that Cosby & Hefner are finally getting called out is the sign that women are standing their ground and we should join them in solidarity.  

Playboy uses women to sell magazines, something by the way which is more exploitative than pornography, yes I said it a woman has more autonomy in porn than in Playboy.  Bill Cosby just uses women, literaly, as play things.

The saddest part is they are not the only ones behaving this way, they are just ones getting called out.  Several men & women like them represent a dying part of our culture that makes excuses to subjecate women and use them to move products, like a an antifeminist rag leftover from the Mad Men era or a crappy reality show.

The fact Holly Madison and the victims of Bill Cosby are standing their ground so adimentaly is one we must all admire and incorporate into our own lives. No matter what race or gender we must stand as a society, nay as a species, with these women to send the message that human beings are not capital, we will not be used anymore.

Me Eating My Words

Originally I was saying if Bernie Sanders did not win the nomination I was not going to vote this election as an act of protest against out lack of choice within the system.  This is no longer the case. 

While her candadacy does not excite me, if I must I will vote for Hillary.  As much as I expect little to no change as far as the real enemies are concerned, corporations and warfare, we cannot let the republicans win.  The attacks on women’s bodies is unexcusable and their rights of choice is constantly under attack by the republicans, and while I can appreciate anti government rhetoric, what I cannot abide by is the needless politicalization of people’s personal lives, namely freedom of choice and sexuality.

  At least Hillary does not acknowedge discrimination as religious freedom, and her stance on women’s choice has always been fair. I still support Sanders but if our choice comes down to Clinton or any Republican we must choose Clinton or at least give our vote to a candidate who will stand for the rights of women and people’s gender and sexuality.  

That is how they control use, the politicalization and racialization of social issues while controlling our sexual identities. If only we could realize this fact, but until then we can at least use the lesser of two evils to do good, or at least minimalize further damage while we sharpen our pitchforks.
