Derrida’s Legendary Cat That Saw Him Naked!:
The Animal That Therefore I Am
I don’t belong to a LGBTQ community because I don’t define myself (by extension, others) by sexuality. By saying this, I hope the LGBTQ community still be friendly with me because I am LGBTQ friendly. I am afraid this is an age not only the ending of one kind of repression but also the creating of another kind: someone who do not act one kind of sexuality is deemed to be of that kind of sexuality, and thus the repression. But Ellen Page’s speech is beautiful not because she came out, but because of the anxiety she expresses in her body language for being closeted for years.
‘The irony of this deployment is in having us believe that our “liberation” is in the balance.’ So it goes.
there is just this intricate thing about ‘be yourself’: why pretend to be who you think you are? you know nothing about yourself, you are only eighteen, nineteen, twenty, and so on; you have years ahead of you to become someone different, perhaps someone better, why do you want to ‘be yourself’? you are yet to find yourself, and therefore you can’t ‘be yourself’; ‘be yourself’ is far from enough.
only when you are with other people you feel the need to ‘be yourself’. that’s why ‘hell is other people’.
why not then, ‘Be With Yourself.’

Dear Lawrentians aka Stalkers of the LU tag,
Please help reblog this and spread the word on Facebook, twitter, and so on.
I have the idea of founding a journal tentatively called The Lawrence Paper.
The idea is simple: you think you’ve written a great paper for a course, so great that you don’t want your readers limited to your professors, your writing tutors, your classmates, your peer editors, your parents, your friends, etc. You Want To Share It With The World Because You Believe Your Arguments Can Blow People’s Mind And Change The World. Excuse the exaggeration, but the idea is a Showcase of the Intellectual Prowess of Lawrentians.
Please email email@example.com if you are interested in co-editing or submitting.
Submissions must be a graded, preferably revised paper written for a past course taken at the Lawrence University campus. The author needs not to reveal the grade of the paper and needs not to be a current student at Lawrence. No creative writings accepted.
Stay warm and beautiful,
