Feb. 16th, 2009 02:11 pm freeing ourselves from freedom

"What we ultimately have to liberate ourselves from may be nothing less than 'freedom' itself-- that is, from the liberal concept of freedom as a regulative or normative ideal of responsible and self-respecting human conduct." -David Halperin, Saint Foucault, p. 21

Feb. 10th, 2009 11:49 am queer identities

"Some queer identities have appeared recently in lesbian zines and elsewhere: guys with pussies, dykes with dicks, queer butches, aggressive femmes, F2Ms, lesbians who like men, daddy boys, gender queens, drag kings,, pomo afro homos, bulldaggers, women who fuck boys, women who fuck like boys, dyke mommies, transsexual lesbians, male lesbians. As the list suggests, gay/lesbian/straight simply cannot account for the range of sexual experience available." -Halberstam, Judith. 1994. F2M: The making of female masculinity. In the lesbian postmodern, ed. Laura Doan. p. 212.

David Kuo, the Deputy director of the White House Office of Faith-Based Initiatives on the Republican loss: "It's kind of like the Tower of Babel. At a certain point in time, God smites hubris. You knew that right around the time people started saying there's going to be a permanent Republican majority-that God kinda goes, No, I really don't think so."

Jan. 19th, 2009 01:31 pm Quote of the day

"There is no more delicate matter to take in hand, nor more dangerous to conduct, nor more doubtful of success, than to step up as a leader in the introduction of change. For he who innovates will have for his enemies all those who are well off under the existing order of things, and only lukewarm support in those who might be better off under the new." -Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince

Dec. 23rd, 2008 07:35 pm why we shouldn't believe in santa claus

The Reward & Punishment System of Santa Claus is Unjust:

There are a number of aspects to the whole Santa Claus “system” which children shouldn’t learn to internalize. It implies that the whole person can be judged as naughty or nice based upon a few acts. It requires belief that someone is constantly watching you, no matter what you are doing. It is based upon the premise that one should do good for the sake of reward and avoid doing wrong out of fear of punishment. It allows parents to try to control children via a powerful stranger.
