Watching a documentary about labia-plasty, basically plastic surgery on the vagina to make it look like a porn star’s.
1. If any guy wants you to fix your labia so he’ll fuck you. DON’T FUCK HIM. He’s obviously an idiot, if he’s so particular, give him a $20 and send him to the brothel, but any man who doesn’t realize how lucky he is, isn’t worthy of having sex with you.
2. Tell him you’ll get it done when he gets a dick implant first.
Some of these people - “Oh, she’s got an ugly vagina.” Umm… well, the fun’s on the inside, and I hate to break it to you, but your bits aren’t exactly genital Adonis over there either. Why do women feel compelled to have their parts fixed when the men aren’t measuring up to the men in porn videos?
My husband hates that “looks like it’s 12” shaved, waxed, and cropped crap. Says that kind of stuff makes him feel uncomfortable, like a predator. Unless it’s really medically necessary, don’t cut up your vagina!

Can we all just talk about this thing where people with no ass are trying to twerk?
Every time I’ve done this, I’ve always felt like I needed the counterbalance.
I majored in gif making.
More like majored in becoming a hot piece of ass
That is about what it looks like. The weird light in your eyes becomes, “Oh holy hell, what did I just do to myself??”
Tim Wise on the “Creation of Whiteness.” Now, here’s what you have to understand about “white” in America.
When it comes to “class,” the rich played on our racial divide to create people who would fight against their own interests. You have more in common with the person in the house next to you than the rich person of a similar skin color. I’m white, but I’m not so fucking stupid to think that anyone at the top gives a rat’s ass about me. Don’t you wonder why they hate unions? Because any time you get a group of people together and show them where the power lies and how the club’s gates are still closed to you, no matter what you look like, they start to realize what they have.
The more time people in the same class group spend fighting each other over race, the less time you are focusing on the elite who are enforcing the social structure. Fixing one will not automatically fix the other, it’s far too ingrained to be turned over so easily now.
But we can wake up to the fact that we’ve been reared to hate each other for someone else’s benefit. And we’ve got a lot to work on in ourselves, but the fight has two fronts. Our own thoughts, and the thoughts being pushed on us.
Wow, I dropped the ball on the album challenge thing, didn’t I? Work’s been rough lately, so, I’ve been more disconnected from my iPod lately.
So, today’s album is the early release of Kanye West’s new album, Yeezus. I will say that while I am familiar with some of his work, I take issue with his attitude towards and portrayal of women. I also inherently kind of… okay, I don’t like what I call “musical masturbation,” which is putting out an album just to be all, “Look at how awesome I am.” Which is what he does a lot of. I like my entertainers with a healthy ego, they do more and make more interesting stuff, but when it becomes an exercise in laughing at me because I was “stupid” enough to buy this album or go to their concert. Then why would I? Shit, I got things to do and your stuff is free on the net.
Let’s just say, I was skeptical going into this. Not to mention, any man who thinks girls are just “so wanting to suck dick” is a guy who has little understanding of the practice, because to level with you, I don’t mind doing it for my husband, but if you keep bringing it up like “Yeah you love it,” well, fuck, no, I enjoy mutually pleasing sex, - I’m not Linda Lovelace in Deepthroat or some mess. It’s like that song “Monster,” I enjoyed the song, the video was messed up, but I honestly always laugh at the “Swallowship” line.
So, the album has an interesting sound. Some of the songs feel like remixes of old video game music, kinda like Random/Mega Ran. (If you’re a gamer, then you should know him, if you don’t… look it up.)
The beat is nice, danceable, although the lyrics don’t really match to that a lot of the time. I come to a debate in my mind about West, in that, his stuff sounds like dance music sometimes, but you don’t feel like the kids dancing to this stuff would really be paying attention, ergo, producing a “Haha, I got you,” effect. In the same vein, comparing him to the older school performers with their much harder lyrics and messages, there’s nothing Kanye says that I haven’t heard someone else say really. If I’m supposed to be being “socially schooled,” well, I’m not, so I’m debating what the purpose is behind West’s album. Social commentary, egotism/musical masturbation, or simply, fuck it - I wanted to make an album. Either way, his association with the Kardashians isn’t going to help his case if he’s attempting to send a real, viable message here.
Like I said, I’m not really for artists that are just about the ego, working in a creative field, there’s a line between the people that are in it for art, and those that are in it for glory, we don’t generally tend to like each other and I fully disclose that I feel he might be on the opposite side from me. But… is he going to be remembered like Tupac? We’ll see.
His music is supposed to push it, to be in the face of the listener. The album is definitely trying to take a darker, more depressing tone, but the random racist statements, sexist statements, or just plain weird statements kind of take you out of it. West has the potential to make some truly devastating statements, he clearly knows how to do this, but some of the random stuff just makes me bust out laughing, which sends conflicting messages.
Maybe his stuff isn’t for me. I personally think 90% of what comes out today is absolute shit. To quote the Nostalgia Chick, “You have to wade through a lot of… idiot.” Pop used to be Michael Jackson, now it’s Taylor Swift, Rock used to be Led Zeppelin, now it’s all cover groups, a lot of rap has lost it’s social soul, and don’t get me started on the fact that it’s time for boy bands to die off like they tried to do in the 90’s. Now I got this fucking annoying “One Direction” all over my tumblr…
If you like Kanye, based on what I’ve heard in the past, this will probably be for you, and several of the songs are quite good, but like all other albums, it’s not all around good, at least not in my opinion.
Most reviews are calling it “abrasive” and I didn’t find it to be. I just… not every song on the planet needs a reference to “pussy, fucking, or dick sucking,” because it doesn’t come off as boundary pushing.
I’ll go with… ”Black Skinhead,” “New Slaves,” and “Blood on the Leaves” for the best songs on the album.
(For the record, there are no artists on this planet that I will fight and die for, (as an artist, I accept that either I will fuck up, or not everyone will like me, and so fucking what…) so I don’t respond to messages of hate from people who want to make a general album review - fighting words.)
Okay, I wanted to clarify 2 things.
1. I was told that this album was supposed to be commentary, if it’s not, then I accept that and fine, I will look at it differently, but several songs definitely fit into that vein.
2. I only post the end disclaimer because my last experience discussing West with a die-hard fan of his ended up ending rather strangely. I mean, I like my artists, but it seems like in the internet age, artist can do no wrong with their fans, and I take exception to that. West is a current, relevant person, unlike most of my other reviews, so I know he has an active fan base. Like, for awhile, I honestly believed that Joss Whedon was a feminist until I really looked at it and changed my mind - but boy, you say it to a Whedonist, and they’ll bite your fucking head off.
