That Aliza Shvarts story is brutal. Sometimes I feel like I am taking crazy pills.

BrentR said...

Wow...unholy crap...I don't know what else to say. I got the shakes just reading the Shvarts article.

It is nominative for me to not run around stabbing people in the eye with mechanical pencils...I should explore this wide realm of capability. Sounds like fun to me.

Liz said...

brian, i would like to know what you think about both of those articles.

BB said...

Shesh!

"It is the intention of this piece to destabilize the locus of that authorial act, and in doing so, reclaim it from the heteronormative structures that seek to naturalize it".

Bet Shvarts is glad she got THAT off her chest.

BB said...

...and BTM - reading "The Yale News" is yet another step down the slippery slope of yuppiedom...

Brian T. Murphy said...

yeah the aliza bit is pretty intense. no doubt. brentr you make an interesting analogy.

liz - I think michael moore is right on. we can talk about what I think about aliza somewhere other than the worstweblogintheworld.

bb - shvarts is probably just upset about having such a mouthful of a last name. it's making her do these wild and crazy things.

what? you don't read yale news every day?

i paused on this as well:

"It is the intention of this piece to destabilize the locus of that authorial act, and in doing so, reclaim it from the heteronormative structures that seek to naturalize it".

so...

like...

ummm...

i just want her to answer me one thing.

WHY does a penis fit ever so elegantly into a female vagina?

she's fighting a losing battle with evolution.

and i mean... well...

just look at the dinosaurs.

i rest my case.

shawn... hilarious.
this "performance art" makes me want to vomit.
so does her pretentious verbiage, i mean really.

Liz said...

shawn avery - i wan to kiss your face. beautifully said.

and i'm pro choice. but c'mon, really aliza?

BrentR said...

katie, I with you. Her writing is worse than her thought patterns. As if a half-baked idea is any better because it is full of articulately contrived false profundities in exorbitance.

This lady is just mad because she wants to be a man.

And. I'll argue this point with anyone. There is nothing more terrifying in the entire world than an angry woman. Not a woman who is mad for a minute and then gets over it. But this type of woman...who is angry at life, and angry at herself.

Terrifying in the sense of "I'm killing myself and everyone I can get to come with me" perhaps. Otherwise it's just one woman's sick, sad attempt to get back at a God she hates. "Self-induced miscarriage????" What the hell?!?!
