sex with me.

a moment of clarity.


a moment of clarity.


"...One night, when I was 24 and living in San Francisco, I met a handsome white guy visiting from Germany. We stood near a window in a crowded bar and talked about an art show he’d just seen. Eventually I brought him to my apartment, where, after removing some of his clothes, he eagerly started to undo my pants. But then he stood there for a moment and gave my crotch a long, perplexed look, like Geraldo Rivera did when, after months of buildup, he opened what turned out to be Al Capone’s empty vault. He replaced his clothes and, before exiting, explained himself: “That’s not what I expected.”

I knew what he meant. He was expecting a “Guinness Book of World Records” penis. He wasn’t the only one — just the last to do it with such efficiently rendered disappointment. That hurt, but I remember being amused that, for him, all our attraction came down to was what someone had told him my dick should look like. I remember standing there, half-dressed in my living room, and actually saying out loud, “Why does he know that?”

But everybody knows. Anytime a pair of pants is prematurely rezipped or the line goes dead in a sex app’s chat window, I always know: He was expecting a banana, a cucumber, an eggplant, something that belongs to either a farm animal or NASA. He was expecting the mythical Big Black Dick (which, online, people just call “B.B.D.”). That presumption is something you tend to prepare for with interracial sex — that your dick could either render the rest of you disposable or put your humanity on a pedestal, out of reach. That it could make you a Mapplethorpe..."

a moment of clarity.


"I’ve written here before about the idea of Trump never really wanting to win the election, and the theory that his candidacy was a giant publicity stunt; whether this is or isn’t true doesn’t really matter at this point, since the outcome will be the same either way, in that his candidacy has been a giant publicity stunt. But it’s also been one that will have lasting ramifications for American politics.

...Again, it’s questionable how much of these idea Trump actually believes, or how much he cares either way, but again, that’s not really the point. Before Trump, these ideas were the preserve of the right’s lunatic fringe. Because of Trump, all these things are now part of of America’s mainstream political conversation. They’re not going to magically disappear on November 9. And the most worrying possibility is this: in four years’ time, we may well see a GOP candidate who has the same ideas, but is less obnoxious than Donald Trump, someone more practiced in the way of sugar-coating fringe ideas for the general public while also dog-whistling true believers.

...The damage caused by Trump’s candidacy will last far longer than the man himself. Because of his candidacy, a whole bunch of far-right fringe-dwellers have been invited into the bar. And, as right-wing parties around the world are discovering, once you allow these people through the door, getting them to leave again isn’t easy. At all."
