@karrrren I'm not someone who is interested in pictures of disembodied penises--send me a dick pic and I'll be all, "hey, yours curves slightly to the right, v. interesting, is that congenital or a result of dressing to the right?" But a real life penis, attached to someone I like, that is responding to my proximity? Yes, please.
Breasts are sexualized in our culture to a large extent. I don't think that LW#2 should feel weird at all.

@Anne Helen Petersen YOU CAME FROM HEEEEEEEAV-EN TO EEEEEEARTH / TO SHOOOOOOOW THE WAAAAAY
...by which I mean: you win.
Getting praise songs stuck in every readers head = my sole goal with this piece
I have just now noticed that if Mammy had, in fact, spoken to Mrs. O'Hara about Scarlett's utter assholery every time she threatened to do so, GWTW would have been a novella in which a nasty Antebellum teenager spent a lot of time locked in her room.
As much as "I'll worry about that tomorrow" is sort of becoming how I live now, I still really, really dislike Scarlett O'Hara.
"Vaguely consumptive longing" is my main activity.
@Faintly Macabre @j-i-a yes, absolutely, both of you are making a lot of sense!! I think the "two sides of the same coin" idea is really important. Because I feel like what I've experienced and what Jia has experienced are really both coming from the same horrible, horribly pervasive attitude of reducing women to their looks instead of just approaching them as people. I don't measure up to these dudes' conventional-attractiveness standards, so I get dismissed (or mocked :/); Jia does, so she gets hit on, relentlessly, obliviously. NEITHER of these things are okay for women to have to put up with (and major kudos, Jia, for articulating your experience so well and carefully--I could feel your frustration and sadness very clearly).
@melis my friend texted me today and was like if you'd died at that thing, that's your tombstone: THESE BROS WERE NOT CHILL BROS
