Look, a man can’t look at a woman and say: ‘how beautiful!’ and desire her, without desiring to be as perfect as she is beautiful. If he doesn’t desire to be as perfect as she is beautiful, it’s not true that he loves her. He’ll abuse her and that’s it.

sex is not *supposed* to be anything
sex is a social construction. it’s a lot of different things for a lot of different people. let’s treat it as such. when you say sex is *supposed* to be X, you’re just as bad as the people who say sex is supposed to be between a man and a woman. stop defining sex.
the only thing sex is *supposed* to be is consensual.
I want so much that is not here and do not know
where to go.
we’re taking a group of people who have insider knowledge of the English language (or at least a good grasp of it) and placing them in a new, unfamiliar, virtual space. This space introduces visual aids to language in the form of photos and gifs, the ability to comment on someone else’s text in a reblog and the ability to communicate a lot of information in very few words using hashtags. We also see the creation of tone in a toneless medium. In order to simulate conversational patterns in writing we SHOUT WHEN WE’RE SUPER EXCITED or *psssst whisper when we’re pretending to tell someone a secret while perfectly aware that anyone on the internet can read what we’re saying.* slash the coolest bit tho is that u can like ironically forgo all capitalization and punctuation just write in a weird speech pattern its ok everyone will still understand maybe it even helps read the text more quickly because nothing is interrupting the flow of words
In short, this dialect results when people who already share a language are given new tools. The result isn’t a butchering of English language but a creative experiment with it. Am I claiming that the Internet as a whole is operating on a level of postmodernism that would make Joseph Heller, Kurt Vonnegut and Thomas Pynchon seem like novices? maybe i am maybe im not u punk wut of it like who r u to tell me otherwise
