ANONYMOUS MUSINGS OF A VERY TWISTED, BORED, AND OH SO LONELY INDIVIDUAL. THEMES RANGE FROM THE PERSONAL OUTWARD, ENCOMPASSING EVERYTHING FROM TRIVIAL ASPECTS OF MY DAY AND LIFE TO THE NEWS AND CULTURE OF THE GREATER RICHMOND METROPOLITAN AREA.
SLEEP DEPRIVATION, RED BULL, AND A SOCIAL THEORY BOOK…
My eyes are getting heavy and I’m experiencing slight hallucinations in my peripheral vision… need sleep… fuck exams. Eh, fuck it. Just three more hours until I get to ride my bike up to the library on this chilly morning. I’ll walk right past the hoard of zombies in line at Starbucks and head downstairs to my class where I will sit down and eavesdrop on everyone else studying together. I’m to shy too team up so I typically just eavesdrop on class mates quizzing each other and explaining how they remember so-and-so concept to who-the-fuck-cares. I will pull out my scantron, my name already bubbled in advance, and promptly try to regurgitate theories from Weber, Homans, Blau, Collins, and Chafetz.
Humans with computers, Alive, thriving, holding onto Love again, or, backspines and Broken, knives, trying to Understand broken knees. Nothing illuminated, deadpan lifting lungs, a permanent stain Blackening self-sung songs, masculine, maybe, and the imposed hum of darkened lulls of stained Early October faded memory. Cascade and collect; the unanswered voices. Recollect as they hope and they hurt. Plan for the summer – The catcalls in foreboding winds. Try, if you will, goddamn, god is damned alive, searching like a prophet, on wall st living on peanut butter, like the other 99 percent of us, while we survive, with jetplanes, laughing at birds on the wings of our cardboard homes. Deadend dayjobs, jutted between, sober Days; currently damned. Questioning daydreams, unalive and unwell. Nervous, breakdowns. Please tell us: can a god Live in such an environment? Tonight, I am drunk, warm. And my cat is snoring.
Even the people who advocate equality are arrogant as shit and put themselves above others.
Human nature is not defeatable.
Equality doesn’t mean sameness, it means same opportunities. Inflated egos exist in every gender, race, ethnicity, and socio-economic status.
In addition to this, human nature is hard to define if it is even definable at all. Even if definable, is human nature relevant once we accept that we are now the products of social factors, rather than biological processes?
I guess this post all depends on shared understandings. Are we biological beings or social beings? What should equality look like?
Balls deep in Sociology Theory, studying for an exam tomorrow. Can’t help but become a giddy little scholar when I see theories of conflict and social change come to life on a LIVE STREAM from Wall Street.
I’d hate to admit it but I had almost given up hope on my generation’s ability to accomplish anything but I’ve been proven wrong. We’ve gained consciousness, we’ve mobilized, and we’ve got momentum!
Pat on the backs all around!
I’m gonna go shotgun energy drinks now, its an all-nighter now.

WOW, this video is fucking sensational. Amazingly well done. I don’t know how the naysayers can’t feel a shift in our country’s social atmosphere… the emotional energy that has finally boiled over into action. To ignore it is beyond me.
Before even getting started on content shown in this picture I just want to say a couple of things.
To start off, I was born and raised in Virginia and I can truly say that I am a proud Virginian. I mean proud Virginian in a kind of romantic ideal way, not a “fuck everyone else” kind of way that most would expect to find south of the Mason-Dixon line.
I should also add, moving forward that I am highly sympathetic and supportive of issues relating to civil rights, including LGBT affairs. Especially living in Richmond, we have a remarkably diverse and lively community that I love.
This all being said…
I know the LGBT movement has a lot of work to do but I had no idea that incestuous marriage was less taboo than same-sex marriage.
To say the least, this is ridiculous… to say the most would require a lot of time and anger management sessions.
Any way… 19 states allow cousins to marry as opposed to the five that allow for same-sex marriage. You all already know my opinion on this, what is yours?
