Stealing from myself

Posted on December 8, 2016 By

So I posted a comment over at Anarchist Shemale’s blog (well worth reading, by the way), and decided I might as well post it over here too. It’s sort of philosophical: I disagreed with the notion that reason is superior to emotion. Like this: So, just for fun, but not actually kidding overmuch: I’m not…

I’m Fleeing!

Posted on December 2, 2016 By

See, the urge to edit absolutely everything is well-nigh inescapable. I originally intended to title this post something like “Fleeing in progress!” But I hate the use of the word “fleeing” there. After all, why not say “flight”? But then I wondered about alternative meanings. Plus, maybe “fleeing” is more clearly active, and thus theoretically…
