i was only recently introduced to some of Porpentine's work. I'm not a gamer, but how i love her words. weird synchronicity to find them here so soon after. weird and raw and lovely, that's her. <3
And now, each night I count the stars.
And each night I get the same number.
And when they will not come to be counted,
I count the holes they leave.
I wish I could take my mouse with me and click-paste that everywhere I go.
I remember after the Weiner scandal, there was so much talk about how no woman wants to receive a dick pick. I just didn't understand it. Not that I'd enjoy getting an unsolicited one from a stranger, but the happy few I've received were... well-received. Why not? It's sexy. It's nice. Why aren't women expected to have a visually stimulated sex drive? We're still people. With eyeballs and groins.
That being said, yes, backgrounds can be distracting. I think I inadvertently insulted a guy asking what the book on his coffee table was. Hey, it just means I kept looking after the first impression!
Also, the contrast between the previous post and the spearing with a bread knife. Mothers! I am one now. I will have to hide the bread knives.
"If her way of holding my hand was swathing my butt in micro-bead-filled plastic, I would still bask in its tenderness."
Good luck! :)
@lucy snowe I hope that's not true. I miss laydeez. :(
I am so damn envious of the author. Oh, how I long for girfriends. How do I find them? Is there a dating site for mostly platonic girl/girl relationships? This is what I wished my life looked like.
I'm not certain what I want to say, but this was a thought-provoking article and worthy of comment. I appreciate the questioning of the functioning of the male gaze. That label seems a useful one to dismiss a lot of interesting work out-of-hand. I still haven't seen this movie, but I'd like to. Thanks for the insights.
That stupid 27 Dresses with Katherine Heigl should have been this.
