Gender and Its Discontent

Artsy Fartsy

When the constructed status of gender is theorized as radically independent of sex, gender itself becomes a free-floating artifice, with the consequence that man and masculine might just as easily signify a female body as a male one, and woman and feminine a male body as easily as a female one.

I forget how fucking aggravating corporate life is. My family begged me to have a steady job in Corporate America that will be comfortable, have a 401-k and all of that bullshit.

In other words, they actively wanted me to have this life filled with passive-aggressive torture that crumbles the toughest of people. Only the weak and ignorant are rewarded in an environment like this.

Fuck my family. What kind of sadistic motherfucks are they that they wish this upon their kin?

I have learned that being open about my disdain for marriage and coupling and the sorts is offensive. But when I get offended hearing about people’s boyfriends, girlfriends, spouses and what not, it doesn’t matter.

Corporate America is about fitting in, being mainstream, boring and devoid of personality.

No matter what you try to do, you cannot change it. You can either drown yourself in booze and heroin, or you can drop out.
