“The Man Who Loves to Hate Himself: How Louis C.K. turned humiliation, rejection, fatherhood and masturbation into the darkest and funniest comedy act in America.” Uh huh. Yeah. How hilarious and original, a white cis-dude who jerks off and gets rejected, who hates himself and is utterly pathetic. This issue also loses major points for framing a story about Rihanna’s recent...

The Key Factors to Polyamory →
proudpoly: In talking about polyamory relationship success, I do take as a given that you’re a rational grown-up. Relationships are for grown-ups. If you’re not a grown-up, fix that, first. Own your own shit, realize the world doesn’t revolve around you, have some basic self-knowledge and the ability to communicate honestly. If you don’t have those things, this article isn’t going to be...
Fuck Yeah, Borderline People: The borderline tags... →
This is why I think after crisis mode, it’s so important to take time to reintegrate, and also in general important to pay attention to ALL the ways BPD affects different parts of how you feel things. Recently posted about this at cuntext.com, about the way the emotional porousness of BPD plays out in sex, and I think that was valuable insight for me. My therapist also lately has been...

Lego: Ur doin' it wrong
Just accidentally had an argument with my sister about Lego releasing pink ones “for girls”. Turns out she thought I meant they were just adding pink Legos to all their sets (as opposed to releasing entirely separate pink sets) and she couldn’t understand why I was so pissed off. WOULDN’T THAT BE FUCKING EXCELLENT? Just ADD PINK ONES to every fucking set they make, and...

dear quebec, please let me immigrate to you officially soon. <3, H. quaintrellle: Quebec’s justice minister called the federal government’s omnibus crime bill a “Band-Aid solution” Tuesday and said his province will refuse to absorb the added costs associated with it.

In defence of fake beauty →
quaintrellle: oh i adore this… The cult of natural beauty does not, in reality, ask us to strip away our feminine ‘fakery’, but rather to make our fakery more subtle and more convincing, which requires ever more expertise, ever more specialised products, and ever more anxiety about getting it wrong. A dress that doesn’t flatter her, an uneven streak of foundation, a dodgy hair dye job: signs...
Eight percent of college men have either attempted or successfully raped. Thirty...– Margo Maine, Ph.D. (Body Wars) There was a time that, as a person of the male persuasion, seeing this quote made me really mad. It made me mad that women would assume that I was a rapist; it made me mad that rape was becoming ‘my problem’; it made me mad because, frankly, I didn’t think it was...
this ain't livin': Short →
Short is not just a matter of length but also of temper, of impatience, of lack of focus, and this shortness is the thing that drives us to scream at the light to hurry up, to push back against the darkness, to demand that things move along more quickly to satisfy our desire to be out of the darkness, to escape from the dark wood wandering. It is so hard to relax into the darkness and the...

Fucking While Borderline
“Borderline personality disorder can sort of be summed up as “really thin skinned” in a lot of ways. I am emotionally porous; I find it extremely difficult to separate my emotions from those of the people around me. I am highly perceptive and receptive to other people’s feelings and nonverbal signals. The scale and intensity of my emotions is huge; where most people might experience their...
