"Jenny Holzer’s famous truism “Protect me from what I want” renders in a very precise way the fundamental ambiguity of the hysterical position. It can either be read as an ironic reference to the standard male chauvinist wisdom that a woman, when left to herself, gets caught in the self-destructive fury, so that she must be protected from herself by the benevolent male domination: “Protect me from the excessive self-destructive desire in me that I myself am not able to dominate.” Or it can be read in a more radical way, as pointing towards the fact that in today’s patriarchal society, woman’s desire is radically alienated, that she desires what men expect her to desire, that she desires to be desired by men. In this case, “Protect me from what I want” means “What I want, precisely when I seem to formulate my authentic innermost longing, is already imposed on me by the patriarchal order that tells me what to desire, so the first condition of my liberation is that I break up the vicious cycle of my alienated desire and learn to formulate my desire in an autonomous way.”"

"Take off your boots, babe,
swing your thigh over mine. I like it
when you do the same old thing
in the same old way.
And then a few kisses, easy, loose,
like the ones we’ve been
kissing for a hundred years."

— A poem from Like A Beggar by Ellen Bass, reviewed by Julie R. Enszer. (via therumpus)

Howard Stern Talks to Mindy Kaling About Love
Stern: Have you had great love in your life, where it just hurts that it didn't work out?
Kaling: Yeah, yeah.
Stern: Why did it not work out?
Kaling: Because, uh... this sounds so lame, it's not profound, but people are so different, and you can overlap in certain ways that are important but not... the ones that are the most important, or something.
Stern: Are you still in touch with this guy?
Kaling: Yes. Yeah.
Stern: Do you know what he's up to, do you know if he's married now, does he have kids...?
Kaling (laughing): Yeah, he's, he's not married, no.
Stern: Not married.
Kaling: No.
Stern: But you check on him.
Kaling: Yeah, he's a good friend of mine. Yeah.
Stern: Look at that smile! I think we can set you back up with this guy. I think you're in love.
Kaling: Yeah, well, he's my best friend, so it's... that's not...
Stern: He broke up with you or you broke up with him?
Kaling: ...He broke up with me.
Stern: You would take him back.
Kaling: No... it was years ago when this break up happened.
Stern: Best sex of your life with this guy?
Kaling: Oh, man. It was pretty good. He's a smart and funny guy!
Stern: Were you upset when you broke up?
Kaling: I was so, so sad. Not angry-sad. Sad-sad. That was the hottest I'd ever looked, because I'd stopped eating...I'd wake up, get out of bed, and not care. We worked together...but I was real miserable.
...
Stern: I think the guy you were in love with was the guy you co-starred with on the Office. [Kaling LAUGHS] Am I right or am I wrong?
Kaling: B.J.? He was... he was -
Stern: He was the guy.
Kaling: Well, he was, yes, you are correct, not that the mystery - you're not Sherlock Holmes or anything, Howard -
Stern: I'm Sherlock Holmes! That's right, that's what they call me.
Kaling: You're like, 'who have you known for ten years who you worked with...' No, but he legitimately is one of my best friends; he texted me before the show like 'Good luck on Howard,' he's been on my show, he was a producer on the pilot, I see him all the time.
Stern: If he asked you to marry him you would have.
Kaling: At the time? Yeah.
Stern: Wow.
Kaling: Yeah.
Stern: Wow.
Kaling: I mean, it would have been.. I was 24. But for the record, if anybody had asked me to marry them I would have...but he's a wonderful guy.
Stern: Well let's hope he calls you tomorrow and asks you to marry him!
Kaling: I! I would not - one thing about this is, I love him and think he's a good person, but I'm not holding a candle for him or anything...
Stern: I believe if he called you tomorrow and said, 'I made a terrible mistake; we must get back together and get married,' you would do it.
Kaling: I... I don't know. I don't know.
Stern: It's not a 'no.' That's it.
Kaling: Alright.
Stern: We'll get you a boyfriend, don't worry about it.

"All of this is typical girl-fear. Once you realize that The Exorcist is, essentially, the story of a 12-year-old who starts cussing, masturbating, and disobeying her mother—in other words, going through puberty—it becomes apparent to the feminist-minded viewer why two adult men are called in to slap her around for much of the third act. People are convinced that something spooky is going on with girls; that, once they reach a certain age, they lose their adorable innocence and start tapping into something powerful and forbidden. Little girls are sugar and spice, but women are just plain scary. And the moment a girl becomes a woman is the moment you fear her most. Which explains why the culture keeps telling this story."

Rookie, The Season of the Witch

mrjynntastic:

one of my fav scenes to be honest, cause lawd knws if they allowed black folks in the league maaaaaaan listen, alot of what ifs possiblities 

This film, “A League of Their Own” dedicates so many scenes to issues like sexism.

Yet, blink too fast and you’ll miss this short scene…the one that shows how Black women were barred from the league.

The Black woman is supposed to represent Mamie “Peanut” Johnson (who actually did try out for the league). She wasn’t allowed to play and went on to be one of the few women to play with men in the Negro League. 

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE A FILM ABOUT JOHNSON AND THE OTHER WOMEN WHO PLAYED FOR THE NEGRO LEAGUE! But Hollywood …
