Gabriel Rios - Gold
"For the last three decades many Americans have puzzled over a system that gives an R to a movie in which a women is carved up by a chainsaw and an NC-17 to one that shows a woman sexually pleasured. From such ratings one might conclude that sexual violence against women is OK for American teenagers to see, but that they must be 18 to see consensual sex. What message does this send to the kids the MPAA presumably means to protect?"
“You have to question a cinematic culture which preaches artistic expression, and yet would support a decision that is clearly a product of a patriarchy-dominant society, which tries to control how women are depicted on screen. The MPAA is okay supporting scenes that portray women in scenarios of sexual torture and violence for entertainment purposes, but they are trying to force us to look away from a scene that shows a woman in a sexual scenario which is both complicit and complex. It’s misogynistic in nature to try and control a woman’s sexual presentation of self. I consider this an issue that is bigger than this film.”

Who cares about dating somebody who reads? I’m just looking for a girl who knows how to swallow a footlong meat tube. I’m a pelican and that’s how we eat. We don’t chew. We just swallow it on down. Ideally, I’d like to date a pelican who can eat things without dying for once.
if i feel like i just had a religious experience watching that, holy fuck, i can only imagine what that girl felt like.
trying to mess around with my theme, i’ve forgotten everything i learned of html from neopets
