a pamphlet brought to you, by me, about crisis pregnancy centers
its absolutely ridiculous that woman to wear corsets anytime they went out in the victorian era. what pain. of course, we still do it today. wearing heels, getting our legs waxed, among all the emotional pain we put ourselves though, as well. beating ourselves up because we don’t look good enough, thin enough, etc. its never ending!!
post:first, let me say, how ridiculous the audio of goblin market was! while read like poetry should be read, perhaps, stressing on certain points and lines and what not, the woman’s voice drove me up the wall. further more, listening to her make provocative statements like ‘she sucked until her lips were sore’ as equally ridiculous as her pronunciation. i did not enjoy the poem, ‘the goblin market’. i thought it was sexual and provocative in a really roundabout and cliche way. the analogy of fruit to women and sex, the ‘balls’ to men, etc. said and done.
…there is no original or primary gender that drag imitates, but gender is a kind of imitation for which there is no original…
this was a damn, interesting class. a lot of info on queer theory, sexuality, etc.
this picture is a basic analogy to our conversation.
post:what i find as most interesting, particularly in the ‘facts of life’, is how loaded and how ‘dangerous’ the subject of sex is, even in modern days. the introduction of ‘facts of life’ basically starts with stating what it is, and what it is not. it makes sure to point out that there are many, many subjects and identities connected to ‘sex’ and ‘sexuality’. some of these ‘subjects’ include religion, morals, desire, etc. some sexual ‘identities’ that individuals take on are, is being a poly-sexual person, being straight or gay, etc. some argue that sex and death is the only reason we live. so clearly, the subject of sex is loaded. while the intro almost ‘pokes’ fun at sexual adviced books, having cautionary intros like ‘Do Not Read On Unless…’, this into does this in not so obvious way. The author wants to clarify, that it is not ‘this’ nor ‘that’, but ‘THIS’, in order not offend, seclude, upset, etc.
