Re: <nettime> Why Isn't There Men's Studies? [6x]


Ugh, nothing more repulsive than examining one's own gender,
except out of onanistic and narcissitic desperation.

Our Bodies Ourselves grossed out, the Vaginal Dialogues
trivialized, joining the near numberless variations of malish
mono-sexual, Socratic monologues with hisism's pathetic
imaginary alterity in which the examiner always wins after
bouts of auto-generated masoch and sade forever trying
to posit exteriority.

Otherness fancied a way out of being unable to escape solitude,
and fabricated genderness, raceness, ethness, intergender
combat, like concepts of humanity and misanthropy, dallied
with faux concern with or hatred for anything or anybody besides 
one's cold-sweaty masturbation upon the confabulated victor
victim presumed to desire and loathe your calculating carcass.

Women as a concept hardly improves on that of men, whether
with or as opposition. Hustle they are, sales pitches for itch balm, 
calls for humility and aggression in the name of the gods of 
abasement and triumph. Avoid genital infection, love a rock.
