As convenient as I’ve made the notion to be at times, privilege doesn’t make a person a robot. I really wish it did. Social justice would be way easier with robots. But the inconvenient truth is that privilege doesn’t erase a persons need for support and…

I’ve rarely watched the videos. They are too traumatizing for me. When I try, I rarely finished them. I have never seen Eric Garner die in the street. I did not watch that child being mounted in her bikini in McKinney. I have not and do not plan to watch…

I’ve been under the boot of a classist patriarchy that has belittled and marginalized core aspects of my being for as long as I have been alive and will, in all rational projections of reality, continue to do so as long as I remain living, regardless of…

Despite the weirdness of existence, most of us are able to get on with our lives and avoid debilitating feelings of despair, personal failure, and cosmic meaninglessness. But every once in a while we’re tugged out of our complacency and forced to re-evaluate our lives. Here’s what you need to know about existential crises, and how to cope with them.

I don’t miss being so inconsolably, mercilessly sad. I don’t miss the incessant, crippling anxiety. I don’t miss the drug abuse. Or the constant unbreaking cycles of emotional and physical abuse in my relationships. I don’t miss the staggering alcohol…

Probably the best personal distinction I have ever made was the value of holding my friends to the same standard of treatment I hold prospective romantic partners to, and subsequently, offer my prospective romantic partners the same freedom and leniency I…

I recently requested a long time patron of mine leave my life. (Actually, I requested that this person treat me with consistent respect, or go away, and they chose the ‘leave’ option.) I made this request because that person periodically responded to my…

That was refreshingly candid.  I have not done those sorts of things this person has to a partner, though in reading through them, I was reminded of some of the much smaller ways I lacked respect at times, and saw it in this person's deeds.

Of course, I was much younger, insecure, and afraid of women enough that I did not always feel satisfied until I had some control over them or emotional edge.

I'm not sure why that mattered to me at the time, but I could never do it without a lot of hidden cognitive dissonance.  Afterward I would panic at my behavior, and that would only make the situation worse.

After I finished my undergraduate studies, 'geting girls' was not some sport anymore.  I enjoyed being on my own and had an academic post that was very fulfilling, and after that my relationships happened without moving too fast and felt more natural.  If it didn't work out, I might have a freak out but I would not let them know, since this as I learned risked a more bitter exchange that only would hurt her more and make me like myself less.

After each breakup they became easier, and I'm most happy for this because I now have the emotonal resources to focus on giving respect to a partner who I date without pushing them, forcing opinions on them, or feeling like I have to assert my 'bro' intellect to create their sense of inferiority and my sense of control.

Only now do I feel in control now that I feel no pressure to be.  I can just get to know women and we can let one another grow according to our natural development without the need to own.  As an adolescent I was girl crazy, but now that I can chill the fuck out, I can't believe how different it feels to appreciate the little and awesome things about women, and I mean all of them, when your mind isn't on getting them, but just noticing what they do and say.
