E: "One of us! One of us!"

The hollow jackpot of your rich kid games. These are just...whoa. I am speechless (Also the grammar and punctuation - not so hot):

Campus Progress’ Top Seven Favorite Quotes from Abstinence-Only Curricula

Many abstinence-only curricula are riddled with assorted tidbits of misinformation, scientific untruths, and outrageous gender stereotyping. Though the scientifically inaccurate sections give us greatest cause for serious concern – i.e. a portion of the WAIT training curriculum that claims HIV can be transmitted through sweat and tears – a number of medieval sounding quotations on relationships and sexuality also made our favorites list.

"Because they generally become aroused less easily, females are in a good position to help young men learn balance in relationships by keeping intimacy in perspective."
Sex Respect, Student Workbook

"[R]esearch confirms that 14 percent of the women who use condoms scrupulously for birth control become pregnant within a year."
Choosing the Best, The Big Talk Book
(In fact, when used correctly, condoms are 98% effective in preventing pregnancy and up to 99% effective in preventing STDs including HIV.)

"Watch what you wear, if you don’t aim to please, don’t aim to tease."
Sex Respect, Student Workbook

"The first player spins the cylinder, points the gun to his/her head, and pulls the trigger. He/she has only one in six chances of being killed. But if one continues to perform this act, the camber with the bullet will ultimately fall into position under the hammer, and the game ends as one of the players dies. Relying on condoms is like playing Russian roulette."
Me, My World, My Future

"The liberation movement has produced some aggressive girls today, and one of the tough challenges for guys how say no will be the questioning of their manliness."
Sex Respect, Student Workbook

"There is no way to have premarital sex without hurting someone."
Sex Respect, Student Workbook

"Just as a woman needs to feel a man’s devotion to her, a man has a primary need to feel a woman’s admiration. To admire a man is to regard him with wonder, delight, and approval. A man feels admired when his unique characteristics and talents happily amaze her."
WAIT Training (This sounds like something my mom would say)

We ain't too pretty, we ain't too proud. So after a rambling, repetative, somewhat incoherent lecture given by the one and only Betty Friedan (Feminine Mystique what), this is what I have gleaned as to what is in store for feminism:

1) Just as women have been freed from their submissiveness, men need to be freed from machoness. This is why women live on average seven years longer than men. Macho is bad for your health.
2) Women earn 50% of the pay on average per household, but men only do 25% of the child rearing. Step up, guys.
3) Men control society but that women are concerned with the details of society. For society to continue to function cohesively, the feminine perspective has to be placed in greater esteem. This is why so many corporations make their CEOs do sensitivity training.
4) Eventually men and women will not be defined by their difference. Men and women will become more alike and take on the characteristics of the other sex, thus being able to live out their full potential as human beings and not simply as gendered archetypes (This one I actually believe. Hottttt).
5) The ERA will finally be ratified when there is a woman president (ha! good fucking luck!)
6) Revolution is fun!

I'm into you. Get into me. Current status: Drunk! Wooo! Current mood: Angry/ freaking out/ fucking horny. But this is funny:

E: ...I think I'm kinda drunk
L(Y): Eh? How so?
E: Cuz I am drinking, and I think I started ovulating today, which would explain my sudden fluctuation in appetite.
L(Y): Heh. Just came off that estrogen high a couple days ago
E: Why must I eat so much when I ovulate? Why God, why? Why must I become fat so as to disgust potential mates? Seems antithetical. That's it! It's a sign! God does not want me to breed!

Also, this is retarculous, but cute:

E: Is your internet still broken?
Gwax: Yup. Hopefully it'l be better soon
E: Boo. I want da photos. Cuz you are cute. And I am cute. So cute+cute=2cute
Gwax: Oh man, I like you and I love you and I'm in love with you and I miss you
E: Cuz I turned us into an algebra equation?
Gwax: No, just in general
E: Oh. I thought it was nerd love.

Like puzzle pieces from the clay. Can I get out of my Arthurian Legends midterm for being too sexy to take a test? Please? Can someone write me a note?

Gabbro: So yeah, I have to look at Geoffrey and the handouts. That sounds like a band name
E: Geoffrey and the handouts! My favorite 1950s rock n' roll band
G: dude!
E: I know
G: Geoffrey and the handouts, live in concert
E: woooooo! I've got my lighter
G: I've got my overpriced crappy band apparel
E: awesome! We are total fangirls
G: *squeals*
E: *tries to storm stage*
G: *hurls her underwear at the drummer*
E: I love you, Nennius!

I'm just a box in a cage. Hélas!

As you can tell, I have been reading too many 17th century French tragedies. Corneille has infiltrated my brain with his theories on la gloire masculine et l'immortalité. But I do get to go to a sex toy workshop with Bartonio in an hour. Huzzah! Happy V-Day to me!

In other news, I have decided that if you don't know what NOW is, you should be shot for crimes against sisterhood.

In other other news, I have decided I should be shot because every time I go to a meeting, I volunteer for something. Hence I am now co-chairing the decorating committee for the last day of classes. Why must I always be busy? Curses!

Who's the one to blame? Word. Fucking word, T!

I believe most Americans voted for John Kerry. I believe the exit polls that indicated a massive Kerry landslide. I believe Americans saw through the Republican propaganda machine and rejected it. I believe the heart and core of America is guided by a deeper and better wisdom than what the cynics tell us. All interpretations of this so-called Bush victory brand us as cowards, bigots, or idiots. I don't believe their analysis. I don't believe their results. I don't believe that gender panic and "moral values" caused Americans to vote for more war, more torture, more corporate power. I don't believe Americans turned their backs on the world. I don't believe Americans care only about American casualties. I don't believe we have closed our hearts to the suffering of others. I believe Americans have a capacity for compassion and generosity, for heroism and self-sacrifice that puts to shame all the warmongering and fearmongering of the current regime. I believe the great legacy of 9/11 was the immediate sense of community and connectedness and willingness to understand the rage against America. I believe that glimpse of universal brotherhood, not the march to war, was the true face of humanity. This is my article of faith. This is my faith-based opinion. This is my gut instinct.

Mine, too.
