a word from Zizek--

"Would you like to live in a society where you have to debate and argue all the time that women shouldn't be raped? No. I would like to live in a dogmatic society where when someone starts to advocate the right of men to rape women, you simply disqualify yourself, I mean, people don't even attack you. You're such a jerk it's like, "huhu, I mean, what's wrong with this guy" or whatever. . and unfortunately, I would like to live in a society where the same goes for torture. . . "

To be or not to be


Whether it is nobler

in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune


to take arms against a sea of troubles

and by opposing, end them

is the question. . .

(Shakespeare as a revolutionary existentialist. . .)

This morning I broke down crying at my boss, but it turned out he was on my side so things are slightly less terrible.

"I will comfort a ten year old when they are crying," I said, "you can fire me if you want."

Other notable highlights of the conversation?

Him: "sometimes you have to live in the real world."

Me: "the real world can go to hell."

Why does everyone keep suggesting that I should make a career of this?

People who abuse children should not be placed in charge of children for a living. There is no fucking excuse. Why is this so hard?
