"I want to perform an unnatural act."

- Lenny Bruce



"I get a kick out of being an outsider constantly. It allows me to be creative. I don't like anything in the mainstream and they don't like me."

- Bill Hicks



"I don’t like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people: “Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, ‘There is no “I” in team.’ What you should tell them is, ‘Maybe not. But there is an “I” in independence, individuality and integrity.’” Avoid teams at all cost. Keep your circle small. Never join a group that has a name. If they say, “We’re the So-and-Sos,” take a walk. And if, somehow, you must join, if it’s unavoidable, such as a union or a trade association, go ahead and join. But don’t participate; it will be your death. And if they tell you you’re not a team player, congratulate them on being observant."

-George Carlin



"The more I see, the less I know for sure."

- John Lennon

Potential letter to Glamour

(in response to this article: http://www.glamour.com/entertainment/2013/12/rashida-jones-major-dont-the-pornification-of-everything )

 

 

Rashida Jones started a dialogue on slut-shaming in the worst way possible, and her clarification seems more of a case of licking her wounds than actual apology. Her insistence that sexuality in itself is fine but "acting like whores" is harmful is confusing, as it seems to state that women can be sexual, but they shouldn't show off their bodies or act like they want to get laid. Also, the attitude of "let's celebrate how women can make babies" doesn't help feminism. Do women such as myself who do not want children still have to get vilified for our life choices? I'd rather have a discussion about how and why female sexuality sells rather than get into name-calling and judgement.

 

(I'm keeping it short because they won't print/read a manifesto. Thoughts?)
