we were together because it made sense not because it felt good
this understanding is a hard one

"Women are supposed to be the ones on the balcony, not the ones down below professing their love. We don’t think the female romantic is romantic. We think she is a predator. We think she is desperate, unstable—Fatal Attraction, the cougar, the spinster, the troublemaker. But deep emotion in this age is a radical act."

"there have been so many times
i have seen a man wanting to weep
beat his heart until it was unconscious."

a grade school teacher said once that i was “left of center”
and it’s something that always stuck with me
cause when you’re like 9 years old and you hear something like that, you automatically think its a bad thing
but i think enough time has passed that i know now she meant it in the best way possible
Any advice for a 21-year-old who hates their job and has the possibility of traveling the world? And has a boyfriend that they like. (This is for a friend.)
Go do it. Fuck him. Is he a guy in his 20s? Then he's the least significant type of person on the planet. A male in their 20s? Run in the opposite direction. Nothing he says matters; his fears, his hopes his dreams are garbage. Men in their 20s are the worst thing happening on our planet. Go, go to Uzbekistan, go to South Korea, just go anywhere he isn't because men in their 20s are bad for young women.
So what do women in their 20s do?
Masturbate. Date other women for a while. Use men sexually for a while but don't ever invite their opinion or be bound to them in any way.
"Since the ideology of choice has taught us that we can control our own emotions and always make rational choices, it follows that we should be able to guide our romantic relationships to produce the greatest possible happiness. And yet our culture prizes the idea of romantic love precisely because it’s not a rational matter. Tragic love stories are all about the suffering of two people who cannot help loving each other, who can’t contain their passion. This is love beyond rational choice. It is about desires, drives and fantasies, which are all prerequisites for elevating another person into an object of supreme attraction. We fall in love with behaviours, appearances and mannerisms that appeal to something we often don’t recognise in ourselves. Love has a lot to do with the unconscious choices we make that can wreak havoc with our rational intentions."

Interested in reading her work. More specifically for this weird “intimacy of objects” kick I’m on right now.
