Tequila has famous cocktails in the same way Julius Caesar had a famous friend called Brutus – a glorious power betrayed and destroyed by those meant to help serve it. The true Margarita has gone the way of the Martini and the white rhino – a beautiful power destroyed by idiots who need chemical help to get horny. Modern Margaritas do for tequila what the Atlantic Ocean did for the Titanic,…
Tequila! And International Tequila Day, aka another excuse to drink Tequila!
“Maybe I’m recording everything you say. Maybe I’ll upload it the internet. Maybe I’ll leave it in context or maybe I’ll reality-show your ass into any appalling arrangement I like. So I guess the question is, do ya feel lucky? Or rather, do you feel I’m worth the effort of carefully vetting every single thing you say to me?”

Not every short sentence is an epigram.
I’ve heard exclusionary, eradicating, and erasing, and you know what? Same difference.
By excluding trans women from feminism, one is effectively eradicating them. By saying “I don’t care about the violence you face as a trans woman” either through disbelief or ignoring their situation, one becomes part of the system that perpetuates that violence. By saying trans women are “really men,” that’s actively harmful. By saying trans women’s issues are irrelevant to feminism, that’s actively harmful. Whether by their own hand or someone else’s, trans people in general and trans women in particular face an amount of violence that we can’t exclude from the issues of the feminist movement, can’t erase from the feminist movement, without the result being effectively eradicating them.
It is hateful to tell trans women that they aren’t women. It’s just as bad as telling lesbians we just need a good dicking or telling women to get back in the kitchen. Bigotry is bigotry. I’m sure your friends have some other wonderful qualities, but that particular one is incredibly ugly and don’t make excuses for it.
"Ah yes, but my cunning redefinition between two five-syllable words trumps other people’s entire lives. I’ve found a semantic loophole in their human rights."
Food is everything. The feeling of love, an instant of clarity, that moment of transcendent beauty while staring at a sunset, they’re all bits of recycled lamb shuffling ions energized by a mouthful of apple juice. And everything is food: if something is alive, by definition it’s made of the stuff something else needs to stay alive, and that puts it on the menu.
Some people would complain that…
Dammit world you need to wake up earlier so that I have some input to reset the neurons between article entries.
When they get software agents working with voice control and simulated faces there are going to be so many Max Headrooms, and most of them will be mine.
Writing for a living means entering your word count and self-esteem in a Red Queen race.
Cats are an invasive species which will exterminate other living things for fun, or just out of habit, and will appropriate any space, object, or resource they find as their own. Of course humans love them. We practically are them. They found the highest branch of the evolutionary tree and leapt onto it.
Cats are a far better representation of human society than dogs. Dogs are a goal, a utopian…
