for anyone who doesnt know, theres no such fucking thing as a glod.  so, logicians use it as a placeholder in their own logic-based proofs, to make sure they dont accidentally add any meaning to one of the words, when they dont intend to.  for example: all glods are hooswits; all hooswits are whatchamacallits; therefore, all glods are whatchamacallits.  that is a logical proof thats TRUE.

this is a logical proof...and its TRUE

but heres one thats NOT true:  all glods are hoosewhits; some hoosewhits are whatchamacallits; therefore, some glods are whatchamacallits.

not true. aka FALSE

and the above could be drawn either way, with the glods overlapping, or not overlapping, with the whatchamacallits, so technically it may be “neither true nor false.”  (does anyone know??  seriously.  i cant remember).  but…if you are trying to prove something is true, you have just failed, if this is your “proof.”  thats my point, really.

confusing, right?  i screwed these up at first, and had to literally draw diagrams to show myself where i went wrong (thanks miska and your bad diagramming self).

start adding in words that actually mean stuff, and it gets even harder to see where you have fucked up, and why.  for example:  all blue things are bright; some bright things are shiny; therefore, some blue things are shiny…its definitely not true…but it looks like it is, to anyone who has ever seen a blue shiny thing before.  thats where we, as fallible humans, with a tendency to make everything about “us,” and our own “lived expewience” simply need some help, to see whats what.  thus, we have “glod.”

i love glods, and i love hooswits, precisely because they have no meaning.

but you know what does have meaning?  ACTUAL WORDS, THAT MEAN STUFF.  and the word “feminist” is a word, that means something.  dammit, it does.  you cant just take a bunch of people that have nothing in common, and call them all “feminist” without defining what the fuck you are even talking about.  for example, heres how i, as a radical feminist, see “feminists.”  they are, by definition, female assigned at birth; NOT ALL FAABs are feminists; and there isnt any other kind of feminist, besides the radical kind:

but apparently, heres what the “feminist majority” thinks constitutes a feminist: (note the lack of any other circles…that means theres no criteria for “what makes a feminist”.  plus the rainy-day gray illustrates how muddled, and boring this all is)

and its pretty much what the fun-fems think constitutes a feminist too…with one notable exception:

fucking shit, people.  now, just so no one starts to wonder if i have a point…heres another example of a logical fallacy: all transwomen are women; some women are feminists; therefore, some transwomen are feminists.  AND THATS BEING GENEROUS.  since they seem to believe, against the great weight of the evidence showing otherwise, that *all* transwomen are feminists.  NOT.  their conclusions dont even follow from their own premises.  not that they have ever bothered to show that their premises are true, to begin with.  fail, fail, fail, fail. 

and dont even get me started on “feminist” men, who, as men, by definition individually and collectively benefit from rape culture.  i wanted to punch youtube in the face, when i saw that.

words have meaning. “feminist” means something, and it definitely does NOT mean “whatever the fuck the feminist majority, a ‘feminist man’, an MRA or a fucking transwoman says it means.”  that is all.

News You Can Use (Food Sensitivities) April 18, 2010

Posted by FCM in health, news you can use, thats random.

this may or may not be the start of a regular column here…the “news you can use” series.  or one post that never goes any further, whatever.  i havent decided yet.  i would like to dedicate this one post that never goes any further/series to my mother, who told me, very helpfully, when i was four years old: “if you are sick with diarrhea and you feel like you have to fart, go to the bathroom.”  largely thanks to her, and that one piece of sage advice, i havent crapped my pants since i was 4.  and i know for a fact that there are many, many people who cant say that.  so, thanks, mom!

now thats news you can use, right there.  seriously.  if people never flapped their gums except to say something that was *that* fundamental, and *that* helpful…well this would be a very different world, wouldnt it?

so heres what i wanted to say, and i hope it will be helpful to someone.  when you go to the doctor for anything, there are rules in place regarding what that doctor is able to say to you, and what they are able to advise you to do.  this is called the “medical standard of care” and it basically means that there is a generic, all-purpose body of information from which they are all tapping, and they cannot deviate from the script, or they could lose their medical license.  they arent going to put themselves in that position for you, or for any patient, because they worked too hard for it.  and many of them are still paying off student loans, and it absolutely requires a doctors’ salary to pay it off.  they arent going to lose their licenses and become a walmart greeter, or a taffy puller, or a circus clown, or any other shit profession that they long ago decided they werent interested in, for you, or for anyone else.

so even if they KNEW for a fucking fact that something that wasnt in that generic body of information was going to be useful to you, and help you with your medical problem, they couldnt tell you.  its not that they just might not tell you, or they wont tell you.  they CANT tell you.  what they can do, and must do, is order tests, write prescriptions, and offer referrals.  so…this is the context in which we are all living, and the backdrop against which we are accessing medical care.  not to mention of course most mens disdain for women, and “wimmins trubbles” generally.  but i digress.

one of the things that medical doctors cant tell you (although there is a growing body of research that suggests its true, and it someday might become part of the medical standard of care) is that many, many people are allergic to or respond poorly to certain foods, and that long-term exposure to allergens can make you extremely ill.  one of the biggest things that food allergies do is make you gain weight, or make weight extremely difficult to lose.  thats because you are retaining water due to a histamine response.  you are swelling up like a big old balloon.  and chronic inflammation can also cause chronic joint and muscle pain.  duh.  and…other stuff that makes you feel like shit, day in and day out.

if you feel like shit, you might want to try avoiding the “big 8” foods that are the most common allergens in a western diet.  here they are:

gluten; corn; fish/shellfish; soy; nuts; dairy; beef; and eggs.

many people are also allergic to latex, and the foods that are related to latex.  these foods are:

apples, bananas, kiwi, peaches, plums, figs, grapes, melons, papaya, passion fruit, cherries, nectarines, pears, pineapple, strawberries; carrots, celery, potatoes, avocados, tomatoes; chestnuts, hazelnuts; wheat, and rye.

i have also heard of people being allergic to peppers, but i cant remember why.  here are the things that i realized that i personally cannot eat:

gluten; eggs; nuts; soy; shellfish; and many if not most or all of the latex cross-reactors.

gluten is like poison to me, and i cant eat it at all.  the others will make me sick in various ways if i eat them daily.  once-a-month is a good rule for those.  unfortunately, the only way you will ever really know if you are allergic to any of these foods is to eliminate all of them, completely, for a month or so.  then add them back in one at a time and see how you feel.  then eat that food daily for a week and note your symptoms (or lack thereof), and then take it back out and add something else. 

of course, this makes it almost impossible to live a normal life, (it becomes normal after awhile though, like most things) or to eat out with your nigel.  i finally had to tell mine to shut the fuck up about it, and i decided that i was going to radically alter my diet because i had to.  he can eat whatever he wants, as long as he doesnt contaminate me, or my food.

i always thought pineapple tasted like numbness and burning.  i thought that was how its supposed to taste.  its not.

that is all.

It’s Just (Penis In Vagina)!!!!11!!11 April 10, 2010

the whole problem with this “its just sex” credo is that its a fucking fail, right from the start.  and as far as problematic ideologies go, thats a big fucking problem, being problematic from the start.  its like…adding a cup of salt instead of a cup of sugar.  or trying to raise free-range chickens in hyena country.  someone fucked up, and theres no reconciling it.  theres nothing you can do in these situations, except reassess, cut your losses, and start over.  right?  thats what a normal thinking human would do, if they had any ambition at all, and the resources to do it. 

it does make it more difficult to see the problem for what it is though, to stick with the above analogies, when some 99.9% of us dont have tastebuds.  and half of us are hyenas.

you see, words have meaning.  yes, they do.  they arent just ink on the fucking page.  and this game of life has rules.  so when it comes to written rules (or “laws” if you prefer) theres a definitional section in the beginning, and a legislative history (aka. “context”) on the record so that we can all reasonably figure out *whats being said* and whats meant, when a new law is being hashed out, and later when its being enforced.  we have to know whats being expected of us, as citizens.  otherwise, its not fair.  in fact, theres an entire multi-billion dollar, international industry thats been in existence for thousands of years, dedicated to ensuring that things are fair, and that the meaning and the intended meaning of words are vetted, and clearly understood.  you know, when it comes to understanding whats being expected of MEN.  and that industry is called “civil and criminal defense.”

when it comes to vetting and understanding whats being expected of women, and ensuring that things are fairly applied and interpreted when it comes to *us* we have…radical feminists.  yeah, all 19 of us, taking on the same responsibilities and taking it just as seriously as a multi-billion dollar, international industry…and we are doing it, largely, with no money, and no time.  and most of the laws pertaining to us are unwritten, to boot.  (something men would never stand for by the way.  if its not written down, they dont have to do it.  simple as that).

and interestingly, our “clients” (other women) rarely appreciate our services, at all.  almost all of them fight radical feminists every fucking step of the way.  then when they have what they want, and are enjoying the fruits of our (and our mothers and grandmothers) labor, they call radical feminists fucking cunts and thank the men for “evolving.”  the lack of appreciation happens in civil and criminal defense too, but at least most lawyers dont have their clients trying to claw their way BACK INTO prison.  and most of them arent “consensually” fucking the guards (or very deeply in love with them).

so, understanding that this is the context in which we all live (and it is) let me ask a simple question, about the definition of a word.  what is meant, and intended, and expected, when we use the word “sex?”  as in, “its just sex!!!!11!1!”  this is not a rhetorical question. 

because there are many, many people out there bandying the term about, and many more who are using it to con other people into doing stuff.  the religious right are telling women to have “sex” with men, in certain situations but not others, and for certain reasons but not others.  and the lefty liberals are telling women to have “sex” with all men, in all situations, for any reason, or no reason at all.  the religious ones, some of them, tell women they can desire it, as long as its with their husbands.  for the lefty liberals, they dont care whether the women desire it, or not.  (both sides:  “yay, hookers!!11!!!!11!1”  oh, and so much for anyone claiming that the religious right are “anti-sex,” yes?  so stop making the comparison between allegedly “anti-sex” radfems and the religious right.)

but sticking your dick into a vagina AINT SEX.  mm-kay?  its not.  since when did “sex” come to mean “men sticking their dicks into women?”  because thats what it means.  thats the intended, and working, meaning of the word.  someone fucked up here, people.  we need to start over, because “sex” has nothing to do with being sexual, with arousal, or desire, or with being interesting or creative or anything.  and its definitely not about “expressing” anything, except penis-worship, and mens entitlement to put girls and women in harms way, without reproach.

so if someone were to say to me, “its just erotic massage!!!!1!!11!”  or “its just mutual masturbation/digital penetration!!!11!!”  or “its just authentic female desire” or “its just a warm, wet, aroused vulva with a non-phallic-looking vibrator stimulating it to orgasm!!!!1!!1” i would say “yay sex, bring it on.”  but thats not what anyone means, when they say “its just sex.”

“sex” as its intended to mean, means “penis in vagina” and since that puts girls and women at risk for pregnancy and STDs, the payoff is not worth the risk.  even if our clits were located in our vaginas, IT STILL WOULDNT BE WORTH IT.  but they arent, and its not.  “its just sex” means “its just misogyny and male entitlement.”  and if you dont have a problem with that, you have a very serious problem, indeed.
