"Jenny Holzer’s famous truism “Protect me from what I want” renders in a very precise way the fundamental ambiguity of the hysterical position. It can either be read as an ironic reference to the standard male chauvinist wisdom that a woman, when left to herself, gets caught in the self-destructive fury, so that she must be protected from herself by the benevolent male domination: “Protect me from the excessive self-destructive desire in me that I myself am not able to dominate.” Or it can be read in a more radical way, as pointing towards the fact that in today’s patriarchal society, woman’s desire is radically alienated, that she desires what men expect her to desire, that she desires to be desired by men. In this case, “Protect me from what I want” means “What I want, precisely when I seem to formulate my authentic innermost longing, is already imposed on me by the patriarchal order that tells me what to desire, so the first condition of my liberation is that I break up the vicious cycle of my alienated desire and learn to formulate my desire in an autonomous way.”"

Ancient. Older even than the sun. Each breath a millennia, each burp a mass extinction.

…that’s a pretty big scale, yo. like i think dwayne ‘the rock’ johnson and god i dunno young alec baldwin would be relatively close to each other on a scale that big. because out in the extremes are baby turtles on one end and turkish oil wrestlers on the other. you see what i’m saying? my personal preferences in the way of human male attractiveness on a scale like that occupies a really small margin.
…maybe i’m thinking about this too hard. my S.O. is somewhere in the middle.

I hover above all. My utterances are commandments, my very dandruff collected and worshiped. The chanting masses huddle below me in constant awe.
So, top I guess?
