Fuck this

Years ago I remember watching an episode of "Just the ten of us" in which Jamie Lunar's character (typical ditsy, late 80s valley girl, more looks than comprehension) goes on a date with a boy and orders lobster. The boy then proceeds to almost rape her, and is completely at a loss as to why he expected that she would sleep with him.

While discussing this trauma with her older sister, she brings up the fact that she ordered lobster at dinner. Its all clear now to the older sister, she ordered an expensive item on the menu so of course the boy thought he could fuck her. The older sister explains this to Jamie Lunar, who is of course still oblivious and responds "Well, I just wanted to try lobster. I've never had it before". The older sister then chastises her for ordering such an expensive item off the menu in a "what did you expect" diatribe. I believe she referred to her younger sister as a "sure thing".

This pisses me off on so many levels, and the fact that I remember it so clearly is the worst part. It obviously left an indelible mark on my psyche as a child of 7 or 8. Why are we OK with this kind of bullshit being taught to children who will then see it as natural and go on to become abusers and victims? I am so angry that I and many other girls were taught that if a man takes you out for a nice dinner, you better eat something cheap if you don't plan on fucking him. And whats the deal with the girl on girl hate coming from the older sister? Rather than console her younger sibling, she places the blame fully on her shoulders and forces her to feel guilty for attempting to enjoy herself on her date without sexual expectations.

I don't know why I thought about this after so many years. Probably because every time I think of dating, or lobster, or dinner, or Jamie Lunar, I'm treated to a subconscious trigger that reminds me that I better watch how I act, or someone is going to rape me. Oh and my vagina is worth the price of a lobster dinner.

The girl who bullied me in high school is the assistant produce manager at a grocery store. I admit that I am hateful for laughing at this.

Ex-Christians are a persecuted minority. Atheists are more hated than any ethnic or alternative lifestyle group. I am constantly told I am wrong for being both. I am consistently battered from all sides for my lack of faith.

I think its time we start to address the range of painful emotions that come with being an Atheist Ex-Christian. We are not dangerous, we are not monsters. We are humans too, who are only following the path that feels right for us.

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Love addicts and sex addicts tend to go together. Love addicts are often people who were severely abandoned. And they tend to idealize people. It's sort of romantic love gone pathological. The kind of person [they'll] idealize will necessarily be the kind of person who will abandon them. If that person suddenly comes around and forms a closeness, the love addict will sabotage the relationship.

Leonardo's character was obviously dreaming.

- Ariadne is a character in Greek mythology that leads Theseus out of the labyrinth using red thread. Ellen Page wore red for the entire film. Just sayin. My personal belief is that Leonardo was in limbo and she was sent in to bring him out, but failed.

- In the last scene the children look exactly like he has imagined them over and over, down to their clothes, even though the storyline would place him out of their presence for at LEAST one full day (real time) regardless of how you interpret the dream sequencing.

- In the "Dream Den" the overseer says to Leonardo "They come here to wake up, you of all people should know that". This is not the most compelling point, but it is a bit of an overstep for that man to have taken with a perfect stranger.

I think the point is training yourself to adjust your own reality. Just like in real life, pay attention to what is strange. Don't let your mind ignore things you know are out of place.

A good friend of my mother's had a psychotic break and attacked her with a gun yesterday. The lady tried to shoot her but my mom fended her off. My mom grabbed her and held her as she was trying to shoot and said to her "Why are you doing this to me? I love you". The woman looked at my mother and then shot herself in the head in my mothers arms right in the middle of their kitchen. My mother insisted on cleaning up the blood and brains herself. My step mother had barricaded herself in the back room and called police. The detective told my mom they found a suicide note and the woman's intention had been to come to my house and kill both my parents, then herself. My mother saved their lives.

I am paralyzed with fear at how close I came to losing both my parents yesterday.

Pancakes?

What is it with pancakes lately? Everyone I know "really wants pancakes", "needs to make some pancakes" or "is trying to make pancakes". Its an epidemic. Maybe its a reaction to a cultural reference I somehow missed. This is likely because I don't watch TV or listen to the radio. Still...

Whats the deal? I hate pancakes by the way.
