Outrage Sunday 72 hope

The toilets of Curtin University: clearly a better type of graffiti than U-Dub or the others.

An invitation:

A Star Trek-hater writes:

Goethe? Zeno of Citium? Adrian de la Touche? Hoey?

Ouch:

Shane Warne studies at Curtin?:

This wasn’t in a toilet: it was on the top of a drink machine in the Engineering building…

Reading in the Curtin toilets: better than immersing yourself in the FSOGverse? Has a TWoPer read the EL James oeuvre? Is she related to Henry James? As Paul Theroux noted, it can be very tiring watching someone read Henry James. Fremantlebiz saw this at a garage sale, and assumed by the spine marks volume 2 has all the good stuff.

    Yes, I’ve suffered through the interminable ramblings of EL James. Admittedly by the third book I could do no more than skim to the end to see if the male protagonist would finally wash his hands of his pathetic, whiny wife, which for me would have been the only redeeming aspect of the story. Alas not to be.
    I am cleansing my mind now with some Hemmingway.

      I forgot to say these were seen by Fremantlebiz at a South Freo garage sale, so they could be rich in Shazza DNA.

            Not that I’ve read it but why is chick porn held to a higher literary standard than guy porn?

              No expectation of a high literary standard from me. It is the repetition of phrases such as “my inner goddess” and “oh my” that made me want to puke.

              Because there are actual words instead of pictures.

              So they come to about the same word count in the end, using the “one picture = 1000 words”.

              Actually, I’m not sure about that. Could someone daringly investigate how many months of male publications would be the equivalent of Ms James’ trilogy?

              Point being that the books are being held up against the standard of literature – against which they apparently fail – rather than wank material – against which I’m guessing they’d do just fine. Nobody craps on about how badly written porn is or how civ/n will end because of it. But, ew, women, mothers even! getting their rocks off to some badly written sex fantasy? how uncomfortable.

              Look, I’m the girl Rolly.

                Not being “of the female persuasion”, I can have no concept of whether or not masturbation is uncomfortable for girls, or not.

                If. by “..how uncomfortable.”, you mean some kind of emotional, moralistic or ethical ‘cringe’ on the part of the general public, then I suspect that your observations of human behaviour are somewhat falsely coloured.

                My Doctors’ waiting rooms are full of women’s magazines oozing inferences to the masturbatory inclinations of the ‘fair sex’, and none of it is overtly criticised for the woeful absence of literary value.

                As for you claiming to be a female version of myself – I do hope not.
                No-one should fairly be burdened with that degree of cynicism and revulsion for for humankind.
