"Anything to help you escape. It takes something to just say 'Fuck it! This is reality, I'm gonna deal with it.' But do we ever really deal with it? Deal with it. Stop running, stop trying to find these substitutes, stop trying to find Jesus in strangers, and Jesus in church and God, and find God in yourself."

    the sun and the moon were the first great love story. They will spend an eternity in the sky, only seeing each other when saying good-bye, and they will always find a way to make that enough.

    I want someone who has been ruined.

    That is a selfish, careless thing to say.

    I want someone who has been ruined

    and I want them to ruin me, too

    Then we will both lay there,

    until we are sure our hearts have died

    and take turns digging them out and planting them in the ground

    waiting for them to push up daisies, or impatiens

    It is amazing what we have inside of us

    we never know until we rip it out

    All I have to say about writers, or people who write,

    is that they are most comfortable in their own head.

    They reach out seldomly, even though they always crave company.

    They are more charming on paper than in person

    (They may even take on the form of a normal human,)

    they are quiet (or loud).

    They have their best moments when no one is looking 

    so they write them down and hope that people can imagine what it was really like

    All the while knowing that, like always, no one will feel

    like they feel.

    All I have to say about writers, and people who write,

    is: don’t you dare give up on them.

    Don’t listen to what they say when you’re in front of them,

    watch their eyes, their posture, their hands.

    They are trying for you.


    If you get close enough to touch them, to really see them

    don’t expect their words

    expect the vessel that those words come in

    the delicately (or roughly) wrapped package

    with all of that gold (or coal) inside of it.

    Oh yeah, you gotta read this. 

    Yesterday, Politico published a leaked report commissioned by two Republican lobbying groups on how the party can better attract female voters. The report, based on a recent poll of 800 female registered voters as well as a series of focus groups, is titled “Republicans and Women Voters: Huge Challenges, Real Opportunities.” The central challenge facing the Republican party is that women—particularly single women and women who have graduated from college—are “barely receptive” to its policies, and are likely to consider the party “intolerant,” “lacking in compassion,” and “stuck in the past.”

    Here’s where the “real opportunity” comes in: If only the Republicans could explain to these women that they are wrong, their votes would come flooding in. The report says that it is a “lack of understanding” between women and Republicans that “closes many minds to Republican policy solutions.” Republicans can attract the female vote by attacking the Democratic claim that GOP policies do not promote “fairness” for women and dealing “honestly with any disagreement on abortion” before moving on to “other issues.”

    Today, R.R. Reno, editor of First Things (a journal that promotes “economic freedom” and a “morally serious culture”), published a very helpful essay illustrating how this fresh new strategy might work in practice. Reno begins his piece with a richly-drawn portrait of a hypothetical female Democratic voter: She is a “single, 35-year-old McKinsey consultant living in suburban Chicago who thinks of herself as vulnerable and votes for enhanced social programs designed to protect against the dangers and uncertainties of life.” (Reno does not specify the number of cats she owns, but for the purposes of this discussion, let’s assume the answer is “several.”) Reno speculates that this woman (whom he has invented and preprogrammed with opinions) feels “judged” by a Republican platform that opposes gay marriage, because “she intuitively senses that being pro-traditional marriage involves asserting male-female marriage as the norm—and therefore that her life isn’t on the right path.” So she votes for the Democrat, who does not appear to be “intolerant” of her lifestyle.

    Here comes the part of the exercise where Reno carefully instructs this fantasy lady liberal that she has chosen poorly, and that the Republican party is the logical choice for a woman in her circumstance. This woman is suffering from “various kinds of personal unhappiness related to the lack of clear norms for how to live,” Reno writes. She secretly “wants to get married and feels vulnerable because she isn’t and vulnerable because she’s not confident she can.” And so, actually, she should support the party that wants to force people into traditional marriages, thus improving her chances of getting married herself. (Perhaps she can marry a gay man?) If only our hypothetical cat lady could get on board, she would get a husband, the Republicans would get another married woman to add to their key demographic, and gay people would get totally screwed. (Yay?)

    In short, Republicans understand women plenty—it’s women who don’t understand themselves. Sounds like a promising strategy that will work with many, many sad single ladies that Republicans have invented in their brains. Next step: Finally granting imaginary women the right to vote.

    A woman can’t object to legally mandating “traditional marriage” because it’s a homophobic, misogynistic airless room from hell and/or she’s queer, no, it must be that she hasn’t had the right dicking yet/found the right man. It’s not possible for a woman to have an actual, like, ideological objection to anything.

    Please ignore the long history of intellectual and ideological work done by women throughout history and all the thoughtful women talking about their diverse needs and advocating for themselves today. That’s all just hysteria!

    Women are only capable of being bitter, sad, Miss Havishams with a hole in their soul only marriage to a man can fill.

    Right.

    Suddenly I understand very clearly how Republicans can think same-sex marriage is a threat to traditional marriage. I mean, if traditional marriage is something women have to get lured into and might break away from at any instant…’cause they’re hysterical, of course…
