Zoom Why Western culture seems to be under the collective impression that the female body is aesthetically superior to that of the male is beyond me. 
Not only is it a paradigm that imposes unrealistic and stifling standards upon women- it also robs men of the chance to revel in their own beauty. And that’s just as unfair, I think.

Desire itself is movement
Not in itself desireable;
Love is itself unmoving,
Only the cause and end of movement,
Timeless, and undesiring
Except in the aspect of time
Caught in the form of limitation
Between un-being and being.
Sudden in a shaft of sunlight
Even while the dust moves
There rises the hidden laughter
Of children in the foliage
Quick now, here, now, always—
Ridiculous the waste sad time
Stretching before and after.

T. S. Eliot, closing lines to section V of “Burnt Norton,” from Four Quartets (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1971)

Alone. Yes, that’s the key word, the most awful word in the English tongue. Murder doesn’t hold a candle to it and hell is only a poor synonym.

No woman wants an abortion like she wants an ice cream cone or a Porsche. She wants an abortion like an animal caught in a trap wants to gnaw off its own leg.

On second thoughts, this is complete bollocks. I can tell you from experience that there are occasions when, having found yourself with an unwanted pregnancy, an abortion looks ever bit as appealing as an ice cream or a Porsche. You can take my word on that. 

I hate this tendency that exists even among pro-choice women to paint abortion as a “necessary evil.” It’s no such thing. I hate the assumption that it will invariably cause pain and suffering to every single woman on earth. I’ve done it before, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. I wouldn’t grieve, I wouldn’t feel guilt or shame, and it would be easy. 

Does that make me the devil? Frankly, I don’t fucking care if it does. 

And that is true pro-choice. The above quote is almost like some kind of a veiled apology, an appeal for absolution, and fuck that.

when an artist wants to show you their art

or a writer wants you to read what they’ve written

it’s quite often an expression of trust

because a poem or a story or a painting are often things that come from the heart

little pieces of the artists themselves

and if they’re willing to share it with you

you should appreciate it
