Re: Veganarchism

@parastexis My students were super interested in Soylent, and a lot of them are writing papers about it. I ended up giving them one of Rob Rhinehart's blog posts about it. Most of them are writing about why they think it is not a good idea, but still, it has been a great conversation starter.

Mine always have some fresh ingredients like fruit and greens, but I have scoped out DIY soylent sites for info about ways to up nutrition. I love food, tho, ...

Re: Veganarchism

Not a vegan or vegetarian, but I eat like one at home, and I just ordered a Vitamix. I am so stoked about it. My current blender is shit. I do wonder, for those of you who are strictly vegan, if you worry about B12 at all? Just about the only nutrient I know of that basically only comes from animal ...

Re: ramdom fashion jorts

Dunno where to post this, and I do not want to be too much of a d.so shill. Our profile of @maj went up today. He was a very good sport. (Non-fashion jort: thanks to maj and the other London-ish c-t folks for being cool.)

Re: What are you reading today/book club

I am reading a ton of essays and short stories and poems about food because I am working on the syllabus for the class I am teaching in the fall, a freshman writing class called "The Rhetoric of Food."

This Mark Doty poem is nice: "A Display of Mackeral"

Currently reading The Rainbow by D.H. Lawerence. Remain unconvinced that modernism is a break with the Victorian period's realism. But it's aight. Recently finished: The Mysteries of Udolpho by Anne Radliffe. One of the first popular gothic novels (1794). Do not recommend unless you are something of...

Re: feminism and social progressivism thread

I am drawn to this nonsense like a moth to the flame-- I really wish that no one needed to be told about gender inequity on a personal or a systemic level, or needed to understand why a political movement should exist to address it, but there you go. if you can't keep snark or strong feelings out of...

Re: feminism and social progressivism thread

Would we say Derrida invented it, generally with the idea of a postmodern world? Short answer: No. Longer answer: Though I am unsure of the origin of the term itself, the possibility for a genderqueer identitification arose from theorists working in post-Derridean fields such as gender and queer th...

lol glad to know that you know me so well. (I could cite instances of my own altruistic interest in other kinds of social progressivism but that would be self-indulgent and feeding the ad hominem.)

Re: feminism and social progressivism thread

The idea of anti-men feminism is like a parody of 1970s lesbian feminism that never has and never will been representative of the majority of feminists.
