The economy that less wants to help you continue than to feed off their own narcissism of getting close to you- that freaky cool weird smart lesbian whose looks don’t actually threaten men. I mean she has blonde hair I mean she’s White I mean she’s skinny she doesn’t look like a man I mean she’s not one of those scary dykes… right?
You Us Them. Hey yeah! Let’s do be around each other. Let’s do hang out and talk. Let’s get our bodies close together and get heated. Lez we can. Wait I got distracted.
“Lez we can” is something I’d like to adopt as a motto. Also, I enjoy how K8 footnotes Eileen Myles’ Inferno. Feels kind of meta in a way.
But the real importance of the entire piece is, I guess, it says a lot of things that I think or feel on a regular basis.
Let’s move into that beloved delusional mode of positive thinking now. I love it! It really does feel good. So what is positive (delusional) about this totally Capitalist and White standard of beauty that infects everything we see and the way we gaze. Reversal? THAT WAY WE GAZE.
