Refining Ratchetness - the Whitest Side-Chik investigates Hipster Racism

I’m cruising Gawker to find stuff on Alt Lit and Tao Lin being a Rapist when I come across On the Glorification of the Side-Chick by Robin M Boylorn and think - Glorified Side-Chik! That’s me!  

Then here’s the first line

I'm a blackgirl, a blackgirl connoisseur of ratchetness, a blackgirl fascinated by media representations of other blackgirls, a blackgirl who cares deeply about the connection between ratchetness, representation, and lived experience.

My Highlight. Robin Boylorn defining herself as Author well-positioned to comment on the Glorified Side-Chick Cultural Phenomenon through a Lens of Racialized Socioeconomics and I think - Ratchetness (?????)

Ratchet: Urban Black American Slang = "Undesirable, coarse woman" comes from “Wretched” as in “man, his side-chick is ratchet

Begs the Question - to be addressed in this Essay - how can you be a “Connoisseur of Ratcheness”? Isn’t that like - a Contradiction? The Academic Ghetto-Black equivalent of a Drop-out White Hipster-Gentrifier into “Branded Authenticity”? ( aren’t they all )

White People be like - I like this Shirt lets you know I'm Trendily Racist
Meanwhile this is a Side-Boi

Ratchetness - Inner-Urban Black Wretchedness-as-Vanity taken to the Level of of Compliment in inteLlectual Discussion, like the inVersion of Hipster which is being so White and Pretentious you don’t realize your Cultural Appropriation of Black People is White and Pretentious; I either have as Much Ratchetness as Rural White can or am as Far from Ratchet Urban Black American Call-Girl as Hipster Rural White Canadian Call-Girl can be it’s Hard to tell with All these Shades of Beige.

Robin Boylorn article makes these distinctions between a Classy White ‘Mistress’ and a Ratchet Black ‘Side-Chick’ on American TV

so-called side chick phenomenon is nothing new, the language/slang repackages infidelity as something black folk invented, therefore making it more tawdry and scandalous. White women who have affairs with married men are called mistresses. Women of color who have sex with men in relationships are called side chicks. Mistresses are taken care of, taken out, splurged on, and at times prioritized above the wife. Side chicks are secrets, limited to booty calls and late night texts, and are expected to play their position (never interfering with a man's "real" relationship). There is usually one mistress, but a side chick is generally one of several. These race-based distinctions contribute to ongoing slights towards black women. Mistresses are white and upper-class and therefore redeemable. Side chicks are poor and of color and are therefore viewed as thirsty, grimy, low down, gold-digging whores who actively pursue somebody else's man.

which is True - none of the Old Rich White Men who like to Xtra-Marital Andrea Coates are going to refer to her as a ‘Side-Chik’ that would be insulting to them and when I say I’m a ‘Glorified Side-Chik’ that’s me being Facetious to insult the Fancy White Men by implying they are no Better than a Black Hood with a Pretty Young Thing he visits on Sunday Mornings while his Wife is at Church, which is either a Great Equalizer ( hey! All Dudes Rich White Poor Black like a little Xtra Xtra now and then ) or a Reminder of Privilege ( Lucky you Mr McEwan because you’re the Whitest Guy I know you get a Mistress who writes Think Pieces on Ratchetness )

Of a White Woman. Other Color Women are too Easy.

Soap operas and primetime dramas have long glamorized the side chicks of powerful white men, making the side chick seem more exciting, loving and desirable than the wives at home, who were equally beautiful but played out. It seemed that as long as a man could "afford" two women (and upper-class men were generally white men), it was his prerogative, and not worthy of attention or appraisal. Working-class black men and the women they juggle (baby mamas, friends with bennies, main chicks), however, are seen as cultural taboos and degenerates with no self-esteem or shame. Further, upper-class black men (like Sean Combs, for example) are excused from harsh judgment because of their ability to financially support multiple women and children. On the flip side, independent black women who are financially secure have been (until the recent rise and reception of television shows to the contrary) largely left alone.

One of these Contemporary American TV-Shows offering us a Previously-non-Xistent Window into the Life of the Independent Black Woman who is Financially secure but also a Side-Chik(duh cause she’d like have to be right - White Women get to be Hilary Clinton ) is Scandal, starring Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, a Washington DC ‘Gladiator’ who is the President’s Mistress(!) Here is Gil Laury at onyxtruth.com on Character Olivia Pope:

Dirty little Secrets? What Dirty little Secrets? Presidents have Mistresses? Presidents like Black Women? His Vaguely Xotic Mistress rules behind the President's Back? Oh America you so almost get it

At first glance when watching the show it appears to be a love story about 2 people who met each other later in life & one person [the President] realized he was married to the wrong woman [The 1st Lady].  Upon looking deeper & discovering the real Olivia Pope as she goes about through the rollercoaster ride of this love affair, Olivia Pope is really nothing more than your standard side chick.  As a matter of fact, she is the poster child of all side chicks.  As I described earlier, one of the only real benefits to being a side chick is receiving gifts.  In Olivia Pope’s circumstances, the best gift she has received from the President is the gift of unlimited power.  By sleeping with the most powerful man in the free world & both of them falling in love with each other all the while both understanding that their relationship will never progress to a true meaningful one beyond occasional creep sessions, Olivia Pope inherited power beyond her wildest imagination.  When I say power, I mean it in the literal sense.  Olivia Pope runs Washington DC in the shadows thanks to her solidifying her position as the premiere side chick.

Wow. Side-Chik runs Man Politics from Shadows through Xtra-Marital Sxual Liaisons is actually what I do but for the Whole World as World’s Greatest Whore from Canada keeps onLine Scandal Journal to pinkmail you with for my Amusement because why get a Job covering up People's Secrets when I could tell you a Story.  

President Schmezident I'm a Dominatrix Queen

back to Robin M Boylorn over at Gawker

The 21st century Jezebel, the side chick is the quintessential scapegoat in popular culture at the moment.  

This is the President - Quick - find us Convenient Scapegoat for the Collapse of American Global Supremacy. uh. Side-Chiks? Not Big enough! How about Canada that Place is Big and Convenient? How about COMBINE THE TWO. Everyone Canadian Side-Chiks are the New Islamic Terrorists!

Serious Synchronicity Jezebel! - is it Collective-unConsciously because of me? the Side-Chik so Glorified she took over a Country where noThing More intereSting than Xtra-Marital Sx ever happens? on a Blog? where I Open-Secretly plot the 21-Century’s Political Course by bribing Men-of-Power with sadoMasochistic Love Affairs they are Sure to accept to save their Manly Reputations Once ACWJ hits the Gawker-Vine? Cause I think so Only Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope is Black and American and eMployed whereas I’m White and Canadian and playing the Anarchik Gift Economy ( like a Professional Puppet-Mistress does - believe me it’s Hard to hold down a Job when your Job is Occasionally-fucking Presidents ) so how Far have we come in Terms of being Racially Culturally and Sxually Inclusive?

Black Brown White Men Canadians Americans Mexicans 
they All have Side-Chiks in their Closets so why cant they get along?

Gil Laury at Onyx Truth:

it is probably a fair assumption to say that 2014 will spark a sort of revolution in which side chicks come out of the shadows to let their positions be known proudly & the main chick/wifey/wife will eventually begin to accept the reality that having a man that’s 100% devoted to them may become a thing of the past.


Before we go back to Ratchetness let’s talk about how it’s going to happen that 2014’s Side-Chik emerges from interNetMedia Shadows to take a Place of Honor as 2015’s Professional Mistress or Courtesan and there’s a Socio-Political rEvolution where the American President fucks the Canadian Queen or he’s not President Anymore. 

Olivia Pope/American President Xtra-Marital is Xemplary of a

Traditional Mistress Complx - TMC is when Man-of-Power ( Mojo when we’re talking about Inner-Urban Blacks not Black Presidents ) as Such develops Lusts for More Woman than the Traditional Monogamous Marriage can accommodate however the Man is unwilling to leave his Wife for his Mistress because doing so would mean Loss of Social Prestige so he chooses his Side-Piece for her Ratchetness - therefore he doesn’t have to feel Bad about using her for Sx Xclusively and then dumping her when she gets to the Nuisance Phase where she starts wanting a Real Relationship and threatening to talk to the Wife or eMployer. TMC is different than when a Married Man meets an Other Woman has an Affair and leaves the Wife for the Other Woman or ends the Affair and goes back to the Wife - that's a Mistake - and also different from a Man keeps Multiple Wives - that's Polygamy - TMC is when a Man is compelled to keep One or More Women in a Secondary Fetish Mistress Position come ca -

It helps if you have TMC but are too Much the Pansy to come out about it to find a Side-Chik who is know to be Mentally Ill whose Mental Illness you can blame for Any Rape Accusations or Attempted Blackmailings or Weblog eNtries about a Character who resembles you.

but there xists anOther Kind of Mistress Complx gets Far Less Air-Time which I believe I am First to put Name to given I am Probably First Woman to point to her Sx-Worker Complx as being Byproduct of

Backwards Mistress Complx - BMC is when Man is hung-up-on/fetishizes/prioritizes a 'Mistress/Married-Man' Dynamic with Women to the Degree he will a) marry a Wife just so he can cheat on her in Open Secret b) marry Woman who is Prostitute because she is Prostitute who treats him like John ( as opposed to marrying a Prostitute so he can 'save' her from herSelf/Pimps by turning her into a Wife which is Whole Other Sxist Romantic Complx ) c) Compulsively or Primarily visit Sx-Workers at the Xpense of Other Intimate Relationships.

Actually my Childhood
How to tell if your Man has Backwards Mistress Complx -
he's been visiting the Same Prostitute since he lost his Virginity

My Debut Novel S.iS1 tells the story - my Story - of White Middle-Class Teenage Girl whose involvement with Neighbor Boy with Backwards Mistress Complx results in her becoming High-eNd Prostitute. My investigations of VICE Media led to my Conclusion Traditionally-Married CEO Shane Smith has Backwards Mistress Complx he is satiating through his Media Brand’s Obsession with covering Sx-Worker/Girl-Writers like mySelf.

Or - he's spent Years putting Women who look like his Wife on the Cover of his Vice Magazine but his Wife has Never appeared on the Cover of his Vice Magazine so what's his Vice?

Traditional Mistress Complx Power Hierarchy is formed as Such:

  1. Man - he gets Multiple Lovers and is viewed as Sxually-Attractive
  2. Wife - she gets Man’s Commitment but is viewed as Sxually-Played-out
  3. Mistress - she is viewed as Sxually-Attractive but not worth commiting to

Backwards Mistress Complx Power Hierarchy is formed as Such:

  1. Mistress - she is a Professional Sx-Worker
  2. Man - he can Only be in Love with a Professional Sx-Worker which is embarrassing for him because he has to share her with Other Men to get off to her
  3. Wife - she is Only kept on by the Man insofar as he is allowed to visit his coveted Sx-Worker ie she herself to the xtent she is Self-Aware is a Sx-Worker who is with the Man because he pays her the False Front of a Traditional Marriage

so while Ethical Man with TMC should find Wife doesn’t mind him keeping Side-Chik and Side-Chik doesn’t mind being Sx-Worker, Ethical Man with BMC should marry Sx-Worker whose Career he supports and approves of or should be Pimp trains Sx-Workers to marry Men with BMCs and/or play Side-Chik to Men with TMCs or should remain Single and visit Mistresses and Sx-Workers. Get it? As Such Coming out the Closet and into her Power Position by Side-Chik can Only be accomplished by Parallel Humbling Coming out the Closet by Man with Backwards Mistress Complx. Mistress Andrea Coates gets Successful when Powerful Man Shane Smith admits he has Backwards Mistress Complx and apologizes for his Misogyny. If Man with BMC refuses to admit his Sx-Worker infatuAtion Chik with Sx-Worker Complx like All Side-Chiks will remain in Shame Shadows with Only Negative Power of being able to ruin his Traditional Marriage to her Advantage in Relationship to Man. Unless Man of Distinction goes Public with “I have Backwards Mistress Complx - I am in Love with a Sx-Worker because she’s a Sx-Worker” Woman-as-Sx-Worker will be viewed as Social Pariah no One could love with More than their Penis - Sx-Worker without Man with BMC is Ratchet like Man with TMC whose Wife wont put up with his Mistress and Mistress wont put up with his Wife is Chump.

But what does this have to do with Rachetness?

like the Idea of being “Connoisseur of Rachetness” is Contradiction reveals itself as meaning its Opposite upon Close Xamination

how can you be a Connoisseur of Tastelessness? Isn’t that you being Tasteful? or - is your being Blackgirl “Connoisseur of Ratchetness” ie Connoisseur of Black Tastelessness you being White? Only White Person or Black Person hangs out with Whites or writes to White Audience would refer to themself as “Connoisseur of Ratchetness” although when Black calls themself “Connoisseur of Ratchetness” they’re being White in a Hipsterish Way - Hipsters let us recall were ‘White Niggers’ ‘Wiggers’ White People who pretended to be Black People - so “Connoisseur of Rachetness” is Black Hipster pretending to be White Person pretending to Black Person which makes Odd Sense in White-Supremacy - but when White calls themself “Connoisseur of Ratchetness” they’re being Morbid Possibly Genocidal ie Racist

being “Glorified Side-Chik” is Contradiction means its Opposite upon Close Xamination

Long as you’re Side-Chik and not Wife playing Side-Chik to accommodate BMC you’re not being glorified for providing Sx you’re being xploited for Sx so calling yourSelf “Glorified Side-Chik” is saying you’re not being treated Better than Prostitute in your Relationship to Man which is Worse than Straight-up being Prostitute to Man in your Relationship - if you’re calling yourself Prostitute because you get treated like One in your Relationship to Man like calling yourSelf ‘Ratchet’ when you’re Black and Tasteless you’re owning it - you set the Price for Sx and he pays and thats how you take the Power back. If you were trying to say you are “Side-Chik who is glorified” what you are saying is your Role in Society as ‘Woman who provides Sx Xclusively' is being glorified to serve the eNds of an Xploitative Patriarchy wants Women like you to proliferate so Men can get Most Possible Sx for Least Possible Loving Commitment which is Sick and should be discouraged ie please don’t glorify the Side-Chik or call yourSelf “Connoisseur of Rachetness” cause a Better Idea is to respect the Sx-Worker even if she is Ratchet

Did you know Women are Bums and Men are Cars?

Black ‘Ratchet’ is an Inversion of White ‘Hipster’ which I defined in my Hipster Authenticity as a Contagious Insult, an Insult catches itself like a Cold. Only Hip White is Pretentious enough to insult SomeOne else by calling them 'Hip' so calling SomeOne else 'Hipster' is to Backhandedly insult yourSelf for being White and Pretentious like that Person over there who is White and Pretentious. The Use of ‘Hipster’ as an Insult is Particularly White Phenomenon - Only Self-Loathing Privileged White or Person of Color acting like Privileged White would snub themself for being Pretentious by snubbing Someone else for being Pretentious, which is why ‘Hipster’ dissolves the Minute we use it as Compliment - if you’re calling yourSelf or Someone else ‘Hipster’ in a Complimentary Way you’re saying it's a Good Thing to be Pretentious, which is not Hip at All, and thus calling yourSelf a Hipster means you are not Hipster - you are an unPretentious Person pretending to be a Pretentious Person so Pretentious People will like you, which they wont because if you're willing to Openly admit to being Pretentious, as opposed to blaming Someone else for being Pretentious, you're not Nearly so Pretentious, but there’s still a Contagiousness going on there where you become Pretentious White-Supremacist ‘Hipster’ Simply by using the Term.

Conversely ‘Ratchet’ is an Insular Insult Only Black People can use to insult Only Other Black People, like ‘Nigger’ can Only be used by Black People to address Other Black People or else it’s Deeply Offensive. Insular Insult ‘Ratchet’ is the Opposite of Contagious Insult ‘Hipster’ turns AnyOne and EveryOne who hears it or uses it into a ‘Hipster’ - ‘Ratchet’ is an Insult can Only remain within a Select Community of People who are 'Ratchet' can Only be used to describe a Very Particular Attitude or else it loses Meaning. It does not transform the Person who uses the insult into the Very Thing they are insulting rather its Proper vs imProper Application works as a Signifier of Membership to or Xclusion from an Insular Community. When a Person of Any Race sneers at Hipsters it’s because they themselves are a Hipster - a Person who identifies with White-Supremacy whose Guilt at associating with White-Supremacy is displayed in their sneering at Others for even Subtle displays of White-Supremacy. When a Black Person calls anOther Black Person ‘Ratchet’ they are saying that Person is Tasteless in a Particularly Black Way which indicates a) the Black Person using the Insult ‘Ratchet’ knows what is Tasteless and b) the Black Person using the Insult ‘Ratchet’ knows that Particular Brand of Tastelessness is Uniquely Black, which allows them to feel a Pride in the Tastelessness as being Special to their Community. Unlike ‘Hipster’ which as an Insult is a Subtle Xpression of Self-Loathing for White-Supremacist Tastefulness, ‘Ratchet’ as an Insult is a Celebration of being Tastelessly Black - no Wonder Hipsters want to be Ratchet but People who are Ratchet have no Interest in being Hipsters and want to protect their Word from Hipster Appropriation. While a Person of Any Color who uses ‘Hipster’ becomes a Hipster a Person who is not Black using ‘Ratchet’ is being Racist against Black People. A Person who is not Black has no Idea what is Particularly Tasteless among Blacks and therefore Any Use of the Term ‘Ratchet’ as an Insult or Compliment by a Person who is not Black is that Person Culturally-Appropriating in a Tasteless Manner - using a Word whose meaning they cannot know as if they did, which is not Hip at All or even Particularly Ratchet I dont think.

Whiteness as Caricature of Culture - how White-Supremacy turns 'Ratchet' into a Mega Meme

White People however are obsessed with Slang and Mannerisms Uniquely Black - it was Desire to be like Blacks created 1960s-Era New York 'Hipster' as Insult standing in for 'Wigger'- before that ‘Hipster’ was Hip Black Person and the Term could be used unIronically as Compliment but like Whites got Hold of ‘Ratchet’ and turned it into Sleazy Compliment for how Fake Black you can seem Minute White People got Hold of ‘Hipster’ it transformed into Means by which Whites could Slyly hate themselves for being White-Supremacists who wished they were Ratchet Blacks with Hip Jazz Collections. So Naturally Hipsters have seized upon ‘Ratchet’ and are transforming it from Insult Blacks trade amongst Each Other to define Black Tastelessness in Opposition to White Taste into Something you can be Connoisseur of makes you seem Hip to White People. Just what is it about being Tasteless in Particularly Black Way is so appealing to Hipsters whose Raison-d’Etre is being Tasteful or Hip in a White-Supremacist Way? Ratchetness - even if it is Tasteless - is Authentic - Ratchetness is Authentic Black Tastelessness - it is the Tastelessness of a Black who isn’t trying to impress Whites. So when Blackgirl Robin Boylorn calls herself “Connoisseur of Ratchetness” on gawker.com she’s having us believe she is Hip enough not to care what White People think is Hip so White People will think she’s Hip. I believe her, do you? If ‘Hipster’ is Self-Conscious Pretentious White-Supremacist Self-Loathing to Point of insulting yourSelf for being Self-Consciously Pretentiously White-Supremacistly Self-Loathing by insulting SomeOne else for being Self-Consciously Pretentiously White-Supremacistly Self-Loathing - thereby protecting yourSelf from examining the Pretentious White-Supremacist Roots of your Self-Conscious Self-Loathing by insulating you in a Bubble of like-minded Hipsters - ‘Hipster’ is Self-Consciously Pretentious White-Supremacist Self-Loathing Insult as Self-Compliment, it describes Hipsters Well - ‘Ratchet’ is so Authentically Tasteless your Own People think you’re Tasteless, which lets EveryOne who’s Black and Tasteless in on the Joke. An Authentically Ratchet Bitch will tag herSelf ‘Ratchet’ in a Selfie but Only a Hipster calls herSelf ‘Connoisseur of Ratchetness’ and Probably doesn’t tag her Selfies as ‘Ratchet’ - she’s got too Much Taste for that, she’s got a Level of Self-Conscious Pretentious White-Supremacist Self-Loathsome Remove from her Ratchet Black Brethren but considering this Remove she’s Better off calling herSelf ‘Connoisseur of Ratchetness’ than insulting anOther Black by calling them ‘Ratchet’, Right?

I'd call my Fashion Sense 'Glorified Side-Chik'

Hipsters are obsessed with Authenticity, including Authentic Tastelessness ( Ironic Ratchet and Glorified Side-Chik and White-Trash Chic is so Hipster ) because Authenticity is what Hipsters are Authentically lacking - Hipsters can’t even insult themselves Authentically. “We Ratchet Bitches” or “Dude, I’m just a Glorified Side-Chik” becomes “Ew this Place is Full of Hipsters” implying Only you are Hip enough to know a Bunch of Hipsters when you see them and get grossed out. Hipsters are obsessed with Blacks because Blacks seem Particularly Authentic to Hipsters but what is it about Blacks seems Authentic to Hipsters? Their ‘Ratchetness’? ie: their inDifference to the Tasteful Opinions of Hip White People? What Hipsters admire in Blacks I think is Authentic Black Resentment of White-Supremacy. I think Whites dislike living in Alienating White-Supremacy like Men dislike living in Alienating Patriarchy but like Man isn’t going to feel he’s Manly unless he upholds the Patriarchy Hipster isn’t going to feel he's Hip unless he’s using White-Supremacy to transform Authentic Resentment of White-Supremacy into Something Tastefully Hip, which Authentic Resentment of White-Supremacy cannot be - Hip, Authentically. hence the Dilemma at the Heart of the Hipster - Longing to be Authentically Aesthetically Rebellious like Ratchet Black underDog without giving up One’s Position of Privilege and Good Taste. Surely there must be a Way to dress? Like a Connoisseur of Tastelessness?   

You could always try a Native American Headdress. That'll convince People you're Authentic.

Hipsters romanticize Side-Chiks like Hipsters romanticize Ratchet Blacks and Dead Indians - Side-Chik like Ratchet Black like Dead Indian is Authentically oppressed like Hipster by Patriarchal White-Supremacist Capitalist Technocracy but More-so and there must be a Way for Hipsters to Aesthetically-assert their Feelings of Authentic Oppression without actually having to take on the Pain and Suffering of those More-so oppressed than themselves - like glorifying and romanticizing the More-so-oppressed in Privileged White-Supremacist Hipster Art and Fashion. Olivia Pope is emPowered Black Mistress to White American President whose Privileged Position landed her Job covering up Scandals! Being Scandalous Side-Chik gives Privileged White Mistress Andrea Coates Sort of Ratchetness for Canadian Connoisseurs! on it goes with the Contradictions and Cultural Appropriations.

Oooh look I'm Lana Del Rey I'm a Man's Mistress in this Music Video that is so Ratchet
Dare I say - James Franco has BMC for me?
Gosh being Popular Hipster Artist acting like Sx-Worker 
failing to make it as Popular Hipster Artist cause Men make Girls Popular 
in Hipster Arts would rather she stay Sx-Worker 
is Such Tough Art to make I am so Authentically Sad and Wistful for me
I'm Alien I got Spirit of a Black Man that's why I have White Side-Chiks kill my Black Mentor
or no wait maybe Spring Breakers is One of those American Movies doesn't realize it's a Canadian Movie WiggerGangster+4WhiteSideChiks=Andrea Coates Nordic Cougar Gangsta Courtesan so Wild she makes Pretentious White Men feel Better about themselves for not being Black Gangsters
In which Country is Politics a Racist Joke? xplain this to me Lana

Alien from Spring Breakers is Good Xample of White Person acts ‘Ratchet’ in Sort of Reverse-Pretension - being Pretentious about being unPretentious. White Person can grow up surrounded by Blacks facing Same Daily Poverty as Blacks yet at the eNd of the Day White Kid grows up with Blacks cannot feel the oppression associated with having Black Skin the Way Black can therefore cannot manifest Authentic inDignation with White-Supremacy Hipsters find so alluring in Black Mannerisms try Desperately to commodify and imitate in Music Videos. White Kid grew up in Black Neighborhood Poor as Black aping Black Style like ‘Ratchet’ is still putting on Pretentious Act of oppression inAuthentic as Any Attempt to deny One’s Whiteness and Privilege. Similarly Any Attempt to glorify a Side-Chik like Any Attempt to act Black if you're not is not Hip but Racist is not Feminist emPowerment but playing into Oppressive Patriarchy’s Xpectation Women accommodate Sxist Power Fantasies - 'Lana Del Rey' is Guilty on Both Counts - Elizabeth Grant treats Racial and Sxual Identities as Costumes for her White Privilege. I don’t think we should disrespect Side-Chik for being Woman offers Casual Sx at Material Price - for being Prostitute - but I don’t think we should glorify her either. Only People glorify Prostitutes are People want to reduce Prostitute to an Object in their Personal Fetish - in Elizabeth Grant's Case a Persona she can take on an off like a Cute Red Dress meanwhile I have to try Much Harder not to be Prostitute than I have to try to be a Popular Hipster Artist no matter how I dress. For Prostitutes to be seen as Human and Respectable it needs to be understood being a Sx-Worker is a Difficult Job with Many Hazards Two of which are being reduced to inHuman Object of Romantic Shame or inHuman Object of Romantic Fantasy. Perhaps Ratchet Black can sympathize - either you’re Totally Tasteless cause you don’t care what White-Man thinks or your Authentic Sense of Taste has been co-opted by White-Man - either Way like Demonized-vs-Glorified Sx-Worker you don’t get to set the Standards of your Own Self-Definition - the Privileged Oppressor does that.

What Whites admire in Blacks is Authentic Perhaps Tasteless Self-inDulgence and Wildness we feel we’ve lost in ourSelves over Generations of Rationalization and Bureaucratization has afforded us Socioeconomic Privilege at the Cost of our Earthiness or Ratchetness. Authentic Tastelessness and Wildness of 'White-Trash' is tainted by Racism whereas Black Tastelessness and Wildness is Pure - thinks the White Hipster who would scoff at a White Guy wearing Trucker Hat and Gold Grill texting his Side-Chik who looks and acts like Miley Cyrus but still sees her Lot as Better than the Ratchet Blackgirl’s because it is.

ACWJ Blog posts Mega-Review Throw the Tao Lin criticizing Solipsism, Commercialism & Misogyny in the work of onLine Millennial Literature (Alt Lit)’s Most Famous Icon - Tao Lin. Andrea Coates offers herself as an Xample of a better-rounded ‘Alt Lit’ Figurehead but is not taken as Such by Hubs Alt Lit Gossip, HTMLGiant, VICE, Muumuu House, Pop Serial, Metazen and Others who Generally dismiss her Contributions to the Scene as unRemarkable and in Poor Spirit.

Oct 2012 - LLWAMedia CEO Andrea Coates begins !~Operation Fun~! Campaign to convince VICE Media CEO Shane Smith to apologize on the Cover of Vice Magazine for Sexist & Otherwise-Biased ‘White-cisBro’ Attitudes at the VICE Media Brand. LLWAMedia CEO Andrea Coates offers to have Sx with VICE Media CEO Shane Smith if he Publicly apologizes for being a Misogynist.

2013-2014 - Xistence of !~Operation Fun~! and ACWJ Blogs extensively criticizing and fetishizing VICE Media CEO Shane Smith suppressed by members of overlapping VICE Media/Alt Lit Inner Circles - Tao Lin, Marie Calloway, Rocco Castoro, Blake Butler, Giancarlo Ditrapano, Megan Boyle, Cat Marnell, Patrick McGuire, Karley Sciortino, Kate Carraway and Many More.

Summer 2014 - LLWAMedia publishes first 5 Chapters of proposed 8-Chapter Summertime Sadness Novella about Sx-Worker Andrea Coates Alter-Ego Hap’E Crimson’s Rape by her  Pimp Boyfriend’s Dad and her efforts to call out Plagiarism, Cultural Appropriation and Sxism in the Works of Singer Elizabeth Grant’s Alter-Ego Lana Del Rey.

Self-Xamining as Well as Apologists Essays and Stories written by Men Women and Transpeople proliferate in the Wake of Highly-Publicized Sexual Misconduct Accusations by Women and Transpeople against Professionally-Successful Men in Literary Arts Scenes.   

2015 - Tao Lin, Shane Smith, Elizabeth Grant, etc - apologize?

Dear Tao Lin

Time may not heal All Wounds but it tells All Truths. When I showed up in 2012’s Alt Lit Gossip criticizing you and promoting myself I was deemed Unfit For Social Interaction and you have made no Efforts to communicate with me despite my having written Numerous Letters to you in Hopes of Reconciliation. I hope you will see the metaPhysical Connection between my 2012 lighting 2010 Richard Yates on Fire in an online Ceremony and the unHappiness 2014 E.R. Kennedy tweets at how that Book portrays his Difficult Girlhood. Does the 2012 Adrien Brody Scandal as told by Marie Calloway and published by Tao Lin via Muumuu House look Different to People in Light of Rape Accusations against Tao Lin by E.R Kennedy, Transperson who inspired ‘Dakota Fanning’ from Richard Yates? ( and here I thought ‘Dakota Fanning’ was an unfortunate Imaginary Girl based on hipsterrunoff and thecobrasnake Teen Model Muses Bebe Zeva and Kory Kennedy. Nope. there are More Creepy Adult Men luring More Impressionable Teenage Girls into Self-Xposure for their Misogynistic Web Arts than I even suspected! ) - Adult Tao Lin actually violated a Minor in More than his Imagination and ought to be held Accountable, though violating a Minor in your Imagination is Bad enough as my Comparable Novella Summertime Sadness tells, maybe you should read it and sympathize with Mr McEwan and I, Tao. Are Marie Calloway’s Short Stories Adrien Brody and Jeremy Lin - published by Tao Lin Affiliates Muumuu House and VICE Media Respectively - anything Other than Continuation of Alt Lit-Bro Tao Lin’s Xploitative Manipulative Selfish Tendencies with Young Women? In Richard Yates we have a Superficially-drawn Adolescent Girl Obsessive-Compulsively Dominated by an Adult Man passed off as Risque Alternative Literature. In Adrien Brody we have a Derivative Marie Calloway catapulted to Literary Fame because an Account of her One-Night-stand with a Rival ( and also Much Older ) Editor was published by Tao Lin. Tao suggested the Hollywood-Celebrity Pseudonym for Publication, of Course - Younger Woman Marie Calloway’s Sx-Life like Younger Woman E.R Kennedy’s Sx-Life was branded by Tao Lin to furnish his Personal Appearance as Virile Contemporary Literati surrounded by Sxually-Available Sad-Girl Celebirity Cliches. In Jeremy Lin we have Fawning Lit Newbie Marie Calloway Sxually-rejected by Older & Successful ‘Jeremy Lin’ when she fails to live up to his Xpectations as a Pliant Girl-Muse or he realizes how he’d be taken to Task for so Swiftly following ‘Adrien Brody’ in taking Advantage of a Very Young Lit Groupie. In Tao Lin’s Most Recent Taipei on.lit Connoisseurs get a Taste of Pseudonymous Hipster Marrieds ‘Paul’ and ‘Erin’ and their Shockingly Banal Descent into Hard Drug Addiction and the disintegration of their Marriage due to Mutual Emotional imMaturity - a Theme of Both Tao Lin’s and Megan Boyle’s I dare say - Relationships collapsing due to Emotional Immaturity. Megan Boyle’s Subsequent Liveblog documented in Real Time(!) her further Drug Abuse and unHealthy Relationship Dynamics. Tao Lin, Buddy - I think you have a Problem with Women and it’s taken 3 Years since I brought it up for you to Really feel the Sting of your Errant Behavior and maybe now you are Ready to listen to me when I try to help you out your Jam. The empathic thing to do, Tao - is apologize to E.R. Kennedy and rewrite Richard Yates so it is less Xploitation of a Transperson’s Adolescent Trauma for the Sake of a Man’s Career Cool and More an eMpathic Xamination of a Man’s Failure of Emotional Maturity in E21PWCT and how it impacted a Young Transperson. Why was 22YO Haley Joe Osment in a Hyper-Controlling Sxual Relationship to a Female Minor who grew up to be a Man and what does that Complx Romantic Relationship have to do with the Toneless Repetitive Commercialism of your minimalist alt-bro Prose Style, Tao Lin? The empathic thing to do, Tao, on my eNd - is not condemn you as an Artist or Humanbeing on Account of how Awful a Book Richard Yates is in its Current form and how Half-Ass Insult-to-Injury has been your Response to E.R Kennedy’s Identity and Feelings about you and your Book being made Public. I still want to be your Friend Tao Lin but when have you ever tried to be my Friend and what does that say about my Attitude towards Men vs your Attitude towards Women? I don’t want you to lose your Nerve and stop writing Tao - I want you to improve as an Artist-Man I can criticise and I think you can do that by taking the Criticism of you as Misogynistic Seriously whether that be Criticism of your Style as an Artist or Criticism of your Behavior as a Man.

Why should CEO Shane Smith apologize on Behalf of himself and VICE Media and Global Corporate Culture Generally for its ‘White-cisBro’ PreJudices?

But of Course the Misogynistic Professional Double-Standard is a Bigger Problem than Tao Lin or Stephen Tully Dierks or Shane Smith or Other Editors and Businessmen showing Preference to inSecure Sxually-Nubile Women in Hopes of worming into these Women’s Panties or xploiting them for a Racy Publication that can be sold for Money. It’s a Systemic Cultural Illness that can be felt at every Layer of the E21PWCT Pyramid of Professional Power - wherever a Woman attempts to make a Professional Name for herSelf she will hit the One-Way-Mirror Glass Ceiling of Patriarchal Sxual eNtitlement. Women can see into the Masculine Power Circle from beneath but Men cannot see out of their Circle from above, which levels the Playing Field a little. I am not immune to the Glass Ceiling of Patriarchal Sxual eNtitlement in my Aspirations and Ascension to the Plutocracy - how do I propose to get VICE Media to apologize for its Years of Sxually-Xploitative Portrayals of Women and Gender-Fluid People? I offer mySelf Sxually as a Reward to CEO Shane Smith if he makes the Ethical Choice and apologizes on Behalf of himSelf, his eMployees, his Contributers, his Media Brand, his Culture. I’ve also been Sxually-Xploiting Shane Smith as a reOccurring ‘Rich Fat Canadian CEO Dufus I am in Love with and stalking and not-Secretly manipulating to my Personal Political eNds’ within my onLine Semi-Fictional Autobiographical Narrative lalalaLand of how I take over the World for Feminarky because. The Difference is my Xploitation of Shane Smith is rEactionary rather than eNtitled  - I wouldn’t have written Sadistic Essays about him or stalked him or tried to email his Wife and All his eMployees if I didn’t feel this was Justice for the 20 Years Cute Canadian Shane Smith has spent in the Condescending and Objectifying Men’s Magazine Business - if Anyone is asking for it here it’s Shane Smith whose Magazine and TV Shows have convinced me is a Masochistic Death-Fetishist in Love with a Much-Younger Canadian Stoner-Writer-Prostitute-CoHost who controls his Money - now there’s a Job, eh? Who wants it? There is an imBalance at VICE Media and Other Brands - American Apparel leaps to Mind -: Feminine People’s Sxual Bodies being exposed, positioned and used to sell Products the Vast Financial Value of which goes to unSeen Primarily cisMale Xecutives secure in their Gender-Xclusive Positions of Corporate Power due to the Severe Rape Risk Ambitious Feminine People face from Equally or More-so Professionally-Successful Men - for a Lot of Feminine People it’s Preferable to remain at Lower Levels of the Business or Arts Hierarchy than to risk Rape at the Higher Levels of Power cause the Higher you climb the More Likely you are to encounter cisMen who treat Sx like they treat their eMployees and Money and Fame - like a Given. Is it Possible Shane Smith will fail to see the Writing on the Wall? what with, in Short Succession, his Friends and Business Associates - Dov Charney, Gavin McInnes, Terry Richardson, Tao Lin... - taken to Task for their Sexist Attitudes and Sexual Abuse of Women in Professional Contexts? VICE CEO Shane Smith needs to admit the Millennial Hipster Arts Scene VICE Media has a Serious Misogyny Problem needs to be fixed or he will see Vice become the Nxt Playboy with himSelf its New Old Hugh Hefner - outDated, Cringe-worthy, Dumbed-down and Fake. I have empathy for Shane Smith because my Stalking of him has yet to reveal him as a Bad Man - Merely, an Ignorant Man, a Man whose Sxist PreJudices have Never been brought to his Attention in a Meaningful Way because his Physical Size and Patriarchal Masculinity disincline People Close to him from challenging him on his Beliefs and Behaviors. I get away with criticizing him because Shane Smith is in Love with me - which isn’t Fair in my Opinion - when Women he isn’t in Love with call out VICE’s Sexism Shane Smith should listen but I suppose it’s no Coincidence the Women to Really stick to her Guns via asking VICE to clean up its Act is the One Shane Smith likes the Best - a Public Apology for the Misogyny at VICE Media is Valuable Any Way I have to go about getting it. When Shane Smith decided he wanted to go Big-Time or go Home VICE’s First Major Financial Investment was handed to the Young Man CEO for the Challenge of a Whiskey Bottle. No One is going to test the Stamina of Young Woman CEO Andrea Coates by suggesting a Drinking Contest unless they are an Alcoholic Eunuch or a Deeply Eccentric Heiress - I wont hold my Breath for either of those when there are so Many Shane Smiths who want to sip Whiskey with me - and that is the Misogynistic Professional Double-Standard keeps Women out of High-Power Positions in the Arts and Business. When a Man in a Position of Power meets a Male Rival to the Xtent he sees himSelf in the Male Rival and is Comfortable with himSelf he wants to help the Man Succeed and gives him Money and Support on the Promise of a Return of Investment and Profit. When a Man in a Position of Power meets a Female Rival to the Xtent he sees himSelf in the Female Rival he sees a Reward for his Penis and to the Xtent he is Comfortable with his Penis he will - if Terrified of his Penis deny the Xistence and Value of the Feminist Rival; if convinced in Bad-Faith having a Penis is Better than having a Vagina condescend to the Feminist Rival by dismissing her as a Rival; and if Comfortable with his Penis ( no matter how Ethical his Penis may be ) have Sx with the Feminist Rival - thus compromising the Professional Relationship. None of this is Conducive to a Woman’s Professional Success - but it does lead of a Lot of Marriages, Divorces, Dismissals and Rape. So Dear Sheryl Sandberg please Lean in - no Woman who is not having Sx with a Man in a Position of Power has Any Professional Power unless it is in a Female-Xclusive eNvironment or the Woman is Particularily ASxual or Masucline. It is Blindness to the Misogynistic Professional Double-Standard perpetuates the Standard - as Long as Men and Women alike are in Denial of the Different Ways Men and Women are treated Professionally on Account of Masculine-Dominant/Feminine-submissive Sxual eNergy Polarity Feminine People will continue to get the Short eNd of the Stick in every Professional eNvironment. In the Future, as in the Past - this is my Prediction - Women at the Pinnacles of Arts and Businesses will be Courtesans - High eNd Sx-Workers - but that is still an unFair Dynamic where Women are Sx-Workers to Male Professionals - Powerful Women defined by their Sx-Lives with Powerful Men and Powerful Men defined by their Professional outPut. To make the unFair Dynamic Fair there needs to be an Acknowledgement by Men in Positions of Professional Power that Professional Power is an unFair Rigged Game Genderwise - Women are required to make Sxual Sacrafices of themselves Men are not to get the Same Places Professionally if ever. As Long as this Sx-Gendered Professional Double-Standard is an Acknowledged Fact of Life for which there are Concessions made to Feminine People to level the Playing Field ( Safe Spaces, for Xample - the Way there will be a ‘Women’s Section and a ‘Co-Ed’ Section at a Gym so Women feel Comfortable working out there should be a Safe Space at every Organization for AnyOne to take Feelings of being Sxually preyed-upon or inValidated due to Sx or Gender ) I believe it will be worth it to Women to offer themSelves Sxually to acheive Career Success while Women who do not wish to make this Sacrifice will not be overlooked if their Art or Business merits aSxual Support. I’m not bothered by having Sx with Shane Smith - I think he’s Funny and Hot and is going to let me take his Money for my Media Brand and be on his Headlining News Show - I’m bothered by having Sx with Shane Smith being Necessary to my Professional Success in a Way having Sx with his Media Mentor/Investor was not Necessary for Shane Smith to get where he is toDay. It wasn’t Misogynistic that Marie Calloway had Sx with Editor ‘Adrien Brody’ or was published by Editor Tao Lin - it was Misogynistic that having Sx with a Rival Male Editor and writing just like him was what motivated Tao Lin to publish Marie Calloway over anOther Young Woman who maybe writes Better and wants the Professional Attention More - like me. It wasn’t Misogynistic that Tao Lin wrote Books about Abusive and Drug-Dependent Relationships with Women based on his Real Life - it is Misogynistic that Tao Lin fails to admit his Responsibility for the Sexual Traumas and Drug Problems of his Former Lovers. It isn’t Misogynistic to run a Men’s Magazine like Vice - it’s Misogynistic to fail to acknowledge that despite a Number of Female Staff and Contributors and Features there is still a Glass Ceiling at VICE and it is still a Men’s Magazine. People flocked to the Derivative Works of Marie Calloway and Megan Boyle because these Women were Sxually-Associated with Idol Tao Lin in a Manner Easy to verify as Real and Gossip-Worthy. People ignored the Original Works of Andrea Coates because that Woman was not Sxually-Associated with Any Prominant Man beyond her Vengeful Imagination - and that Behavior on Part of the Audience as Well as the Publishers indicates a Misogynistic Professional Double-Standard. VICE can Most Certainly continue to publish the Works of People who have Sxual Liasions with Staff Members - however VICE needs to pay More Attention to whether or not a Particular Writer is being promoted because of their Sxual Liasons or because of their Professional Merit - and VICE can start perceiving the Nuance between the Two Reasons to be ‘into’ a Professional’s Work by apologizing, Publicly, for the Many Many Times in the Past VICE has failed to make the Necessary Distinction between ‘Girlfriend’ and ‘Professional’. LLWAM is More-so a Family ( Kin-Group ) than VICE which is More-so a Corporation ( Work-Place ) - a Family Kin-Group is not Ethically-required to prove that Professional Merit accounts for its Ties but a Corporate Work-Place is Ethically-required to prove that Professional Merit accounts for its Hires. Was Megan Boyle hired to VICE because she wrote a Great Column or because she was married to Tao Lin? Was Marie Calloway published to VICE because she is a Talented Short-Story Writer or because she writes Derivatively and Graphically about having Sx with Men from Alt Lit? Was Cat Marnell hired to VICE because she is a Reliably eNtertaining Columnist or because she reminds Shane Smith of Andrea Coates the Writer-Slut he is in Love with and therefore can’t hire but is addicted to Drugs so not quite as Sxually-appealing as Andrea Coates to Shane Smith Cat Marnell but More Hireable if Only insofar as her Drug Addiction remains Reliably eNtertaining? Was Slutever Star Karley Sciortino hired to VICE because she knows a Lot about being a Slut or because she doesnt know enough about being a Slut to know that Shane Smith is training his Custom-Fit Financial-Dominatrix News-Show Co-Host Wife through his Media Brand? Was Kate Carraway hired to pen Girl News because what she wrote was News to Girls or because it wasn’t? I’m not Sure where the Ball falls in Any of those Cases = Misogyny at VICE Corporation. When a Corporation fails to uphold an Ethical Standard of Hire for Professional Merit it needs to apologize and make Reparations like if a Family requires a Certain Kind of Professional Success of its Kin to love them needs to apologize.

The Place of Empath Lit in All this

Empath Lit has emerged as a Response to deepening understanding that the Game of Professional Success in Literature and elsewhere is rigged against Women and Transpeople - Artistic Legacy places us at the Objects-eNd of Lustful Contemplation for a Traditionally cisMasculine Hero-Subject whose Opinion of us Feminine People is Absolute but colored by his eNtitlement to Dictatorial Control over our Bodies and Personalities as his Reward for being a cisMan-Hero in his Subjective Penis Conquest Narrative. Patriarchal Privilege is the Assumption that Feminine People are the Due of Male Professional Success when this is a False Assumption - Professional Success is the Due of Professional Success - not Sx. However if Women and Transpeople are going to win a rigged Game ( what is our Due? to be xploited in a cisMan’s Power Fantasy of a submissive impressional Sx Object due him for his Professional Success? )  we are going to have to employ that Powerful Tool which cisMales are failing to use in their eNtitlement to our Bodies and Souls as their Professional Due - empathy, which is what Women are supposed to do, for Basically Free, Right? What’s a Housewife’s ‘Job’ if not being there for you Sir with a Busum to cry onto and a Ham in the Oven. a Man who sees a Woman as his Due does not have empathy for her and so he is a Monster and it is Usually Only Necessary to expose Someone as a Monster for them to be brought to Justice for their Monstrosity - Time tells All Truths and if you were the eMpathic One you will be redeemed while your Abuser will be condemned. For Women and Transpeople to have Justice for the Sx-Gendered Professional Glass Ceiling keeps them out of Professional Power Positions Men must admit there is a Professional Glass Ceiling made of Sx with the Male Inner Circle ( there is ), why it is there ( because Dominating Men are Sxually-attracted to Female Professional Rivals so to avoid Conflicts of intereSt in Business and Marriage disincline Women from thinking of themselves as Professional Rivals to Men - think of yourSelves rather as Girlfriends and Wives and Mistresses and Secretaries and Sex Objects! ), why Men can’t see through the Glass Ceiling standing on it but Women and Transpeople can see through the Glass Ceiling standing under it ( Most People are not aware a PreJudice xists if they have it but are Keenly aware if a PreJusice xcludes them ), and how the Glass Ceiling can be dismantled ( acknowledge the Tendency of People to prioritize the Professional Work of People to whom they are Sxually-attracted Regardless of the Merit of that Professional Work divorced from the Sx-Gendered Covetability of the Professional to the eMployer or to reject the Meritorious Work of Proffessionals because of Sxual Attraction or Lack of Sxual Attraction and use the acknowledgement of this Tendency to a Misogynistic Professional Double-Standard that affects Women and Transpeople’s Abilities to Succeed Professionally Particularly so to detect when it is manifesting itself unFairly in Corporate Hires and Popular Successes - the Double-Standard is manifesting in VICE/Alt Lit and so the Reactionary ‘Empath Lit’ where the Alt Lit Double-Standard is brought up to be discussed and retooled - and VICE will have to take Notice of this Reactionary Movement or lose its Position of Supremacy as an Alt Lit Publisher ) - addressing the Glass Ceiling requires having empathy for Women’s and Transpeople’s Positions Professionally and Personally. Empathy is not Objectivity - Objectivity is pretending like Men and Women and Transpeople have it Equal in Professional eNvironments because they ought to when in Fact they don’t on Account of their emBodied Sx-Gender and Dom/sub Polarities; Empathy is recognizing Men Women and Transpeople do not have it Equal in Professional eNvironments on Account of their emBodied Sx-Gender and Dom/sub Sxual Polarities and so making the Necessary Concessions to address Sx-Gendered inEquality so everyBody is Happy with their Position in the Professional eNvironment and merits it - having empathy for Women and Transpeople makes Dominating cisMen look Generous with their Professional Power while failing to show empathy makes Dominating cisMen look eNtitled and Greedy and Rapey. Women and Transpeople too must have eMpathy for the Dominating cisMale - his eNtitlement to Power is Liable to make a Lonely Fool or Murderous Psychopath of him if we don’t point out what his Privilege in Life has blinded him to and will deprive him of if the PreJudice is unaddressed and left uncorrected - Loving eMpathic Sx he thinks he is eNtitled to in his Masculine Privilege and Professional Power and like ‘Mr McEwan’ of Summertime Sadness or ‘Haley Joe Osment’ of Richard Yates will rape to get out of Vulnerable Girls. If Shane Smith and Tao Lin don’t apologize for the Misogyny in their Personal Brands what will happen to their Love-Lives I wonder and what on Earth will they use to accentuate their Professional Cool then? - More Drugs and Relationships with increasingly Younger Women with correspondingly Less Power of Consent? VICE&Alt Lit are obsessed with Compulsive Drug-Use and Much Younger Women to the Xtent they are Sxually-repressed Misogynistic Scenes in which Drug Use and Rape-Sx acts as a Distortion of the Ugly Reality of Emotional Abuse by the cisMan-Heroes.

What is so Disdainful about ‘Alt Lit’ and off-putting about Vice Magazine is the Misogyny, the Xploitative Use of Female and Trans Bodies for cisMasculine Self-Glorification, the Pretentious Lack of Empathy disguised as Holier-than-though Hipness, the Reflexive inSecure Self-Protection and Fear of Change that manifests as an inDifference to Constructive Criticism, and the Sorry-not-Sorrying for and from Corrupt Power Figures that is Really Moral Laziness and Shortsighted Economic Self-Preservation. I’m not apologizing for VICE or Tao Lin- I’m asking them to apologize - that’s how they can take Responsibility for their Mistakes and show eMpathy. That I have empathy for them and Good Intentions as regards VICE&Alt Lit is how I can be their Harshest Critic and yet still get offended when ‘Andrea Coates’ doesn’t show up in Lists of Alt Lit Luminaries or get published at VICE - and VICE should take this Stance with its Advertisers: if you aren’t willing to be Constructively criticized in our Magazine don’t pay to advertise in our Magazine. Any Other Attitude towards Advertisers by an inVestigative Magazine betrays Corruption.

Empathetic Criticism is not a Contradiction. Something People maybe misunderstand about Empathy is how Tough it is. It’s Tough to do and practice makes you Tough - meanwhile People think empathizing is a Natural Aptitude of the Feminine People wey should get paid for and makes us weak. I’m not the Meanest Critic of Alt Lit because I’m a Cruel Hater - I’m the Meanest Critic of Alt Lit because I’m an eMpathetic Lover - quite Literally a Professional Sx Therapist - having Sx with People requires a Great Deal of Empathy and Empathy is Tough - it’s a Tough Job being a Lover and when you aren’t given your Due Credit even if your Job is SomeThing it would be inappropriate to take Money for  it’s enraging and feels like Rape. cisMen and their Apologist Women get All wrapped up in “did he actually do that?” “did he force you?” “did he hit you?” “did you say ‘NO’?” like Rape is Something that can be decided-on based on the Amount of Physical Damage you incurred when a Man had Sx with you and also you can’t tell for yourSelf what a Rape of you is or isn’t when - it hurts your Soul Most and try proving your Soul hurts? The Only Way to prove your Soul Hurts is through Art. the interNet gives Women and Transpeople whose Authentic Voices would Otherwise be shut away in a Journal that Never gets read ( “I was raped and told not to talk about it by my family they think I have a mental illness” “I’ve been treated like a rich old man’s mistress since I was 14 but when I finally blackmail him he told the cops I have a mental illness” “a man wrote a famous book about how he abused me when I was 16 but to his facebook fans he says I have a mental illness” what Mental Illness is that? ) the Opportunity to have their Stories find inNumerable Others who have undergone Similar Alienating Xperiences like Rape. Most Men in Positions of Power who own Media Companies and write Famous cisMan-Hero Books have no Idea what it feels like to get raped in their Body and Soul - they are the Ones doing the raping - and therefore do not encourage the Other side of their Stories - these are Lost to Frivolous Mentally-Ill Girl Blogs Men will Only publish or praise if it makes them look Virile and in Charge of Things.  

Again I’m not this Critical of Men because I dislike them - I like Men a Lot I think - More than Women who don’t criticise Men considering how Many of Men I have Sx with comparatively to Most Women who don’t write Man-bashing Feminist Articles on the Daily. I think my Affection for Men has led to my becoming a Sharp Observer of their Habits - and it’s not All Pretty Bois - like my Fondness for Literature and my Generation has led to my becoming the on.lit Witch. That is Empathetic or Constructive Criticism and Alt Lit needs it Bad - Badder than Alt Lit Publisher Shane Smith needs to get laid.

Here’s to the Death of Misogynist Lit this Halloween and its reBirth as Empath Lit in the Spring of 2015 Hoorah
