THIS MAKES ME UNCOMFORTABLE

Oh, so women can’t dress how they want because men can’t control their sexual urges? When dogs can’t control their sexual urges, we cut off their balls.
I think I’m onto something here.

Not in this society. A lot of females thinks the person who loves them is obligated to say they’re beautiful. So when it comes from strangers it gives them a self esteem boost. Which to me is personally dumb cause females tend to forget that the person that loves them is the one who sees them at their worst and still thinks they’re beautiful.

I grew up reading a generation of American and English people like [Saul] Bellow, [John] Updike or [Martin] Amis. Everybody’s neutral unless they’re black — then you hear about it: the black man, the black woman, the black person. Of course, if you happen to be black the world doesn’t look that way to you. I just wanted to try and create perhaps a sense of alienation and otherness in this person, the white reader, to remind them that they are not neutral to other people.
