With all that’s going on in Ferguson and around the country, I think it’s finally time for Republicans, even Bill O’Reilly, to admit that racism is not dead in this country.

Yes, we conservatives can do that. Now I’m not saying we have to admit that we’re racists, or that our policies…

The trend of labeling women “crazy” is part of the culture that socializes women to go along to get along. When women are told over and over again that they’re not allowed to feel the way they feel and that they’re being “unreasonable” or “oversensitive”, they’re conditioned to not trust their own emotions.

This can go to extraordinary lengths: in Washington state, N.P.R. found, offenders even “get charged a fee for a jury trial — with a 12-person jury costing $250, twice the fee for a six-person jury.”

We need beauty. But what right did I have, I kept asking myself, in a world so full of hell?

In his poem, “A Brief for the Defense,” Jack Gilbert attempted an answer. “We must risk delight,” he wrote. Life contains everything. Tear gas in Ferguson. Books read on the grass. Foley’s murder. Dancing in New Orleans, till sunrise blots the stars. We’re meat—fragile and finite. But joy is survival.
The past does not have to be your prison. You have a voice in your destiny. You have a say in your life. You have a choice in the path you take.

The erect cross section looks like a cartoon character, which is pretty much how penises look all the time anyway. I also could have lived without “spongy tissue.”
