that’s it. that’s the relationship.
"A culture fixated on female thinness is not an obsession about female beauty, [it is] an obsession about female obedience. Dieting is the most potent political sedative in women’s history; a quietly mad population is a tractable one."

"Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality."
"Something stuck with me since seeing Man of Steel: One can see an anti-queer message in that movie. Beyond the most obvious racial critiques of the U.S.—in particular accepting with relatively open arms a white illegal alien (literally an alien here!), and besides the overt (and lazy) ties to Judeo-Christianity—what caught my mind’s eye is how Krypton is a planet that found a way to procreate minus heterosexual sex and Supermen, Kal-El, is sacred, special enough to be saved over everyone else precisely because he was conceived via heterosexual sex, or in the lexicon of the film: ‘naturally.’ Those who defend [the non-heterosexual] way of procreation are the villains. I mean rather than just modify the whole caste system aspect, they destroy all means and ways of procreating that circumvents heterosexual sex and no one mourns this. No one in the film nor in the audience. I just sat there blinking and thinking: Why, oh why can’t I just passively watch a movie?"

"You tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more, tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake…You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that."
