If you think being born into a female body is a privilege, go away, unfollow me, don’t speak to me ever.
That fact that ‘Fight Club’ is being taught seems — to me — to underscore the dearth of novels that explore male issues. The past years have given us so many books, from ‘The Color Purple’ to ‘The Joy Luck Club’ to ‘How to Make an American Quilt,’ which depict women in groups and relationship, but almost no books depicting social models for men. That’s my two cents worth.
i am sitting here SCREAMING with laughter
what world do you live in chuck palahniuk
and how can i live in this world with a dearth of novels that explore male issues
showing this to everyone who tries to argue that palahniuk is being ironic and mocking masculinity and ‘male issues’ in fight club
I think at least two rules of Fight Club are being broken by this class.
"almost no books depicting social models for men"
Oh wait, you were serious?
Fight Club was published in 1996.
The Color Purple was published in 1982
Joy Luck Club was published in 1989
(and note how these are both books about women of color)
They are not books “the past years” have given us, you IGNORAMUS. THEY WERE PUBLISHED THIRTY YEARS AGO. YOUR BOOK IS MORE CONTEMPORARY THAN THEY ARE.
Translation: “Me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me. I am uncomfortable when we are not about me. Me.
Also, I am so lost in the Manbox, I think dudes beating the crap out of each other qualify as a social model for men.”
y’all bleed outta your vaginas
once a month, your panties look like a fucking murder scene
you are basically giVING BIRTH TO THE FUCKING LINING OF ONE OF YOUR INTERNAL ORGANS
and yet you just go about your daily business like
people with periods are fucking badass.
In a male-supremacist society, female power must logically appear illogical, mysterious, intimate, threatening. “Witch” stands for all those unnamable shadow acts of disappearance and withdrawal, self-cultivation, and self-medication that elude the social and sexual orderEditors’ Note: Witches (via cyberwave)

*takes a deep breath* WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT ACTIVELY DISCOURAGES FEMALE INTELLIGENCE BY PAINTING IT AS A NON FEMININE TRAIT AND SETS UP MALES TO BE IN POSITIONS OF ACADEMIC SUPERIORITY DESPITE THERE BEING NO CORRELATION BETWEEN GENDER AND ACADEMIC ABILITY thank you for your time
I dO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW ITS HARDER TO MAKE A FEMALE ASSASSIN THAN A MALE
DONT WANT TO DO HAIR ANIMATION??? GIVE HER SHORT HAIR
DONT WANT TO RENDER A DRESS??? HOW ABOUT YOU DRESS HER LIKE EVERY OTHER ASSASSIN?
COME ON AC DEVELOPERS ARE YOU THAT AFRAID OF RENDERING A GODDAMN BOOB
a lot of people fear things they’ve never seen before
