hook me up yo
article in the Atlantic on the [college] hook-up culture and women. But I feel like it also applies to women a decade older and internet dating [ahem].
"Actually, it is an engine of female progress—one being harnessed and driven by women themselves." or "We’ve landed in an era that has produced a new breed of female sexual creature, one who acknowledges the eternal vulnerability of women but, rather than cave in or trap herself in the bell jar, instead looks that vulnerability square in the face and then manipulates it in unexpected, and sometimes hilarious, ways."
I would argue with some of the ways the writer sums up the scene, but, all in all, a good read. Meanwhile, i am writing a poem about the girl friends I love, they dream of sexualizied dolphins at high altitudes.

My blog lived on Tumblr for a minute
because it is so much easier to access from my phone. fallinginrealtime.tumblr This is the feed. No, I don't like it. I can't add another virtual box. I'll make due with Twitter.
