Kathy Acker LQQKS appreciation post

A long time ago, my homie sent me a Kathy Acker book, Empire of the Senseless, in the mail from her college class (I had not yet entered the tower at that time), saying she found Acker’s work incredibly hard to read but maybe I would like it cause “cyborgs”… And this was before I ever got into academic cyborgs and Haraway realm stuff, so it really didn’t connect for me then. But I held on to the book. I only read part of it when I first got it, confused, unused to literature that wasn’t for popular consumption, but I have since met a lot of weirdos who really love her work and say she’s the shit. heyanniemok recently put a joke in one of her comics how it’s a trope that transgirls love Kathy Acker

And anyway, respect.

'Sex' doesn't sell. Erosion of female self esteem does. The feeling of superiority over women does. Turning women into 'things' to be studied, scrutinized & judged and then calling it 'sex' does.

Sex doesn’t sell. Objectification does

REVIEW JUST IN FROM MY DAD!!!! 

“Ambitious and fearless, “Bunny” is the most vividly memorable and provocative set of pet-sitter instructions you will ever read.   ”Bunny” will immerse you in a world of extreme anthropomorphic excess that will make you laugh out loud, then think twice about letting your kid have a pet.   A must-read for anyone who has ever suspected their cat was really in charge.”

In my early twenties, I was dating a trans woman who in some ways still had a male body. I was very attracted to her, and she was absolutely a woman, but part of me was like if I’m attracted to this anatomically male body, does that mean that I could be interested in men? I don’t want this to be interpreted as I dated a trans woman so I could be into men, but I feel that there’s a blurriness that happens with trans people. For some people that blur opens things up and calls things into questions, things that could otherwise be rigid identities. By

Ariel Schrag, author of Adam, in her interview with The Rumpus

I FUCKING HATE ARIEL SCHRAG.

to talk about how trans people open things up and call things into question and to simultaneously talk about people being “anatomically male”?!?!

wow, bummer.

Psychologists have found that people’s belief in a just world helps explain how they react to innocent victims of negative life circumstances. People become cognitively frustrated when presented with stories of victims who suffer through little fault of their own. They can deal with this frustration in two ways: they can conclude that the world is an unjust place, or they can decide that the victim is somehow to blame. Most people reconcile their psychological distress by blaming the victim. Even when we know that suffering is undeserved, it is psychologically easier to blame the victim rather than give up the idea that the world is basically fair.
