Sending nudes with Atlas Shrugged in the background as capitalist propaganda and to remind the recipient that it was not sent altruistically and something is expected in return.

The idea that sex is something a woman gives a man, and she loses something when she does that, which again for me is nonsense. I want us to raise girls differently where boys and girls start to see sexuality as something that they own, rather than something that a boy takes from a girl.

Bourgeois society is ruled by equivalence. It makes the dissimilar comparable by reducing it to abstract quantities. To the Enlightenment, that which does not reduce to numbers, and ultimately to the one, becomes illusion; modern positivism writes it off as literature.

It’s Costa Rican independence day and I’m waiting for my friend near our meeting point but I didn’t feel like standing so I sat down. I’m pretty sure all the people assume I’m homeless since I’m sitting here alone on the street instead of going and meeting up with people. I think this is the funniest thing ever.
