Retweeted by Monica Byrne@quadz08 :Dthis video. still an astonishing piece of art. #87 of 95. Happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful for ab canoes. Right. We can do both. I love Mel Gibson's work, but the man... 😞😞😞@jmridenhour I hadn't known anything about him before that night, and didn't want to, afterwards.@haszombiesinit should've probably said "museum" not "collaborative." i was an artist in residence there once@haszombiesinit oh yes! and it's in greensboro! i just finished "the summer people" and loved it and wondered if it was at all inspired by the Elsewhere Collaborative...?anyway back to my research on enema paraphernalia@carmenmmachado ok. :)@carmenmmachado (also, i'd dearly love to read your essay, and would not share it.)@carmenmmachado awesome. <3 in the meantime.@carmenmmachado for pre-novel publication time.@carmenmmachado they wouldn't be able to publish his name for legal reasons. i let it go at the time bc i had to write a ton of other stuff@carmenmmachado @inkkr @hannahjwaters i wasn't, no, though i'd been talking to lynn at @vidalia_ about publishing something awhile back.@carmenmmachado yeah. again, let me know. i learned from the bora zivkovic thing that there's strength in numbers. @inkkr @hannahjwaters@carmenmmachado lo entiendo. :( many women sure have that experience, too.@carmenmmachado gotcha. let me know if you ever feel differently. you are really not the only one who's experienced that from him.@carmenmmachado @SamSykesSwears GIRL. I was going to title my blog post about the incident the EXACT SAME THING..@carmenmmachado @SamSykesSwears yeah. which is also pretty much spelled out in his books. and yet goes uncriticized..@carmenmmachado @SamSykesSwears totally. very important stuff. and yet his public performance of progressivism =/= private behavior.@carmenmmachado @SamSykesSwears yes yes and YES. every time someone posts like "woo junot diaz on love blah blah" i'm like ".........."@carmenmmachado @SamSykesSwears i'm not that far along, either, but i'm not sure we ever will be, unless we're honest about those in power.@carmenmmachado @SamSykesSwears not challenging that, but genuinely curious: when do you think that will be?@carmenmmachado i know parts of it. you're the person my date texted right after it happened..@SamSykesSwears date and i left in the middle of the dinner..@SamSykesSwears ...after the umpteenth time being interrupted / shut down to privilege the other man at the table (peter straub)....@SamSykesSwears ....yelled the word "rape" in my face to prove a point, had met me like 15 minutes earlier....@SamSykesSwears yes. incredibly shitty experience at a dinner being interrupted / yelled at / talked over / gaslighted...or will he merely continue in his role as Saint Diversityso on "punching up" many more women out there have stories of being treated like shit by junot diaz? or was it just me?@noirony yes."Why I am trying to prove myself to writers whose work, in many cases, I don’t particularly admire?" mmmmmmmmmmmmyesI have to. I have to be fluent in the dominant culture to survive. @SF1bookclub "but women are supposed to be the victims only" "but so much sex" "but" "but"@brianjohnrose @SF1bookclub *shrugs* at themIt was written for EVERYONE ELSE.But that could just as easily have not happened. The Girl in the Road could easily not have been picked up. It was not written for white men...and it was NOT WRITTEN FOR THEM. It was written for ME. It was what I WANTED IN THE WORLD.PANDERING KILLS AN ARTIST'S SOUL. I got SO SO SO lucky that @zackwagman & @sstoloff liked The Girl in the Road JUST HOW IT i'm basically livetweeting my reactions to this amazing essay so here's one thing i want to say right now... shit. And the beat drops. "Glad you like it, Lee. It’s for you.""Myself, I have been writing to impress old white men." Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaang"We live in a culture that hates us. We get that. Misogyny is the water we swim in."'m halfway through @clairevaye's essay On Pandering and hooooooooly shit. How many more of these stories are going to come out.@Tin_House @clairevaye Hahaaaaaaaaaaa I was just about to say....😳 As if I wasn't already really excited for @monicabyrne13 's new book!
