All I wanted to do was sneak out into the night and disappear somewhere, and go and find out what everybody was doing all over the country.

Women are afraid of meeting a serial killer. Men are afraid of meeting someone fat.
When Strangers Click, a 2011 documentary about online dating.
It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
I mean, it’s just true.
“Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
That’s it. That’s it right there.
I love you more than my own skin and even though you don’t love me the same way, you love me anyways, don’t you? And if you don’t, I’ll always have the hope that you do, and i’m satisfied with that. Love me a little. I adore you.

Only in America can you be pro-death penalty, pro-war, pro-unmanned drone bombs, pro-nuclear weapons, pro-guns, pro-torture, pro-land mines, and still call yourself ‘pro-life.’

I am my greatest companion. I do not say this to sound boastful, prideful, I say this because it is the basis of my survival. When I am distressed, I turn into myself and find comfort. When I am excited, I find myself celebrating in rapture. When I am defeated, I find myself picking myself up.
To know the greatest ally is within me always, is my greatest asset.

You are not IN the universe,
You are ARE the universe,
An intrinsic part of it.
You are not a person,
But a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself.
