I’ve never been so good at combative, forceful, analytical argument: when confronted with a relentless intellect formed for piercing, my tendency to adaptability, to subjectivity, to teaching different minds and enjoying incongruous aspects of humanity, all cause my brain to crumple somewhat embarrassingly (for a bourgie-ass leftist daughter of professors) into a jelly-like form bedazzled with feminine “i feel’s” and irrelevant “historically’s” and petit-bourgeois “for me’s.” The hot tar of the antagonistic words, seething with the inadequacies of my arguments, splatter my face and heart, preparing them to be feathered later with the machismo-surety that a winner will never reconsider.

  1. 👏👏👏

  2. 1) same
    2) i can hear in my mind you smack your lips and sardonically say “for me” and it’s everything
    3) ❤

  3. tar and feather – so good

  4. This mirrors a feeling I have about politics: very glad some people are suited to analytical argument…and very glad that some people aren’t.

  5. I feel this way on mum/dad/foofy’s text thread rn.
