“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Cut Out and Keep

 Since when did “structural” mean “immutable”? 

You “have to” see it that way, you poor sad bigot people. You have to because you can’t. You can’t because you know. But you make like you don’t. The effort. 

So you have no room to cry. So you have no room to smile. So you have no room to really cry. So you have no room to laugh. So you have no room to really really cry. So…

You talk Jesus but you missed a spot. Right on the exit wound you don’t even know you have. Forgiveness. Mercy.  

Don’t you see? You’re creating the horrible rigid structure you’re aiming at. You’re creating it for yourself too.
