I spent half my night tipsy whispering to my new roommate’s cat lily (while holding tiny balls of string cheese)
"just so you know… there’s more where this came from"
"we could be good friends… good friends"
"you like this? tastes better than cat food? you like this?"
and basically using mob tactics to seduce this small cat into sleeping with me in bed
jfc every friend i have is getting married and it’s weird
"It’s cool to linger in the past and all, though you’re going to kick yourself for it in retrospect, but if you’re going to waste your time on something untenable but comfortable, it’s impossible to move forward. Move forward, or stay stuck. There’s no one foot in the past and one foot in the future option. You’re obviously not ready to hear this now; you wouldn’t even be talking to your ex if you were. You’re trying to see other people because he told you to (how generous!) but there’s no point, because you’re fixated on this future fantasy end game with your ex where he’s fixed and you’re happy. Spoiler alert: relationships are hard work and they happen simultaneous with other hard life shit. He is fully aware of this, but taking advantage of you. If someone’s not with you when they’re in a bad place in life, they’re not magically going to be with you later when they’ve arbitrarily decided life’s good enough to pencil you in. There is no “yay everything is good now forever!” place, there’s only daily commitment, which needs to take place in the present, not the hypothetical future Zac dangles in front of you to keep you emotionally hooked."

if you are or are any combination of male, cis, white, straight, able-bodied, etc and you feel othered or unwelcome in relevant social activist circles and seek a community of people who will always judge you by the content of your character and not the details of your personhood, i have super good news for you about the rest of the world
put this on my grave, I swear
"It seems to me that the New Atheism — particularly its recent gaudy English manifestations — has a distinctly neo-colonial aspect. (As Cary Grant remarked: Americans are suckers for the accent!) On the one hand, the New Atheist, with his plummy Oxbridge tones, tries to convince Americans that God is dead at a time when London is alive with Hinduism and Islam. (The empiric nightmare: The colonials have turned on their masters and transformed the imperial city with their prayers and their growing families, even while Europe disappears into materialistic sterility.) Christopher Hitchens, most notably, before his death titled his atheist handbook as a deliberate affront to Islam: “God Is Not Great.” At the same time, he traveled the airwaves of America urging us to war in Iraq — and to maintain borders that the Foreign Office had drawn in the sand. With his atheism, he became a darling of the left. With his advocacy of the Iraq misadventure, he became a darling of the right."

[W]e live in a sexually liberal society, not a liberated one. A truly liberated society is one where sex is value-neutral and not having sex is just as acceptable as having a lot of it.
The fact that asexuals are considered weird, sick, abnormal, mentally ill, repressed, etc is a bold indicator that we are not living in a sexually liberated society but in a liberalized one."
