“The world is not full of Attractive People and Unattractive People. It’s full of people who are attractive to some and not to others. I hear from trolls all the time who complain that they don’t want to be “forced” to find nasty, ugly fat women attractive–which utterly baffles me, since the last thing I want to do is encourage fat-hating dicks to date fat women. You don’t find fat people attractive? Fabulous. Don’t date them. I will find a way to pick myself up and move on without your love. But to assume your lack of sexual interest in fat chicks must be universal–or that the mere existence of self-confident fat people having healthy relationships somehow “forces” you to find fat attractive–is the height of fucking narcissism.”—
oh that Hass is one of my favorites. i get something new from it every time i read it. It's absolutely lovely read aloud - it adds another dimension (though i think that's the case with lots of poetry). He's brilliant.
He was on the faculty of my department when I was at Berkeley but that program was so overwhelming as it was that I never really knew any of the creative writing people. I am quite certain I could have heard him read a few times, I just didn’t have my shit together at all.
Sweater, thrifted | Dress, thrifted, Rodarte for Target | Boots and tights, Target
This was sort of my homage to the Mulleavy sisters, both because the dress is from the Rodarte for Target collection, and because of the ballerina bun donut I am using in my hair (because they did the costumes for Black Swan, get it?). Oh, and because one of them is cute and fat!
Second pic is ridiculous, but I was mid-shot when some people pulled up looking for a parking spot. Heh heh.
Oh god - I would be intimitated a bit to apply for her classes, but god would they be great to be in!
I hate that I cannot reply to replies. You've been sending me such lovely messages lately! Also I'm jealous of your salvation army target.
I know, that is one of the chief complaints about tumblr!
Yeah, Rudy, who you just have to meet some time (I would be very surprised if your don’t already know a lot of people in common, what with the Austin radical queer connections), braved her class, and I think that once you have been admitted to the circle, she is a delight. Which is kind of what I would expect!
