The charm of the gender binary #2: Communication

Part 1 here. Versione in italiano qui. (Before someone gets steamed up, this series of post, as I hope you've already understood, is highly ironic and humorous and it refers to the feminine and masculine stereotypes which are worst in my opinion. Everything is highly stereotyped. I have dear cisgender friends, and the fact that … Continue reading The charm of the gender binary #2: Communication

Rambling: I hope this helps to clarify…

I stumbled upon the 1000th Facebook post on how identity politics have contributed to the election of Donald Trump, and generally the rise of the far right in this moment, and how they are very very bad. So, since I'm not from the USA (and I'm very very very happy for that) and since I … Continue reading Rambling: I hope this helps to clarify…

Stupid music to turn off my brain

Versione in italiano qui. Actually, I don't think that any intellectual activity is totally stupid. You're still using your mind after all, and you're still absorbing things and thinking about them. However, there is indeed intellectual activity which requires much more mind work than other; writing a book is way more demanding than writing this … Continue reading Stupid music to turn off my brain

I’ve published my book

Versione italiana qui Yeah. Sort of. But it's out! Out and about! No, just out for the moment, as for the about we will see. Well, it's been a serious nuisance. Not writing it, publishing it. Read through all the instructions, make sure you're doing everything properly, check the copyright page, format the document the way … Continue reading I’ve published my book

My pick-up art

Italian translation here. So. Pick-up art, uh? Or PUA. It looks like there are a lot of people buying into this stuff. I mean, there are articles being written about it. Just google it. There are confessions from pick-up artists: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/the-filter/confessions-of-a-serial-pick-up-artist/ There are male humans who tried to figure out the best way to speak with … Continue reading My pick-up art

Misogyny in the West and in the Middle East: an unfortunate comparison

Italian translation here. This is what happens when you discuss misogyny in different places in the world and the perception that humans have of it, and then your love for lurid and your inclination for comparisons and jokes which really shouldn't be made gets the better of you. "Let's put it this way, since I have … Continue reading Misogyny in the West and in the Middle East: an unfortunate comparison
