Should Sex Offenders Be Working For Dildo Companies?

Turns out one of the jobs convicted sex offenders are doing in prison is working for dildo companies.

Now, one reaction would be "packaging dildos hurts nobody." But another reaction could be "Whoa, that's disrespectful to their victims!"

What do you think?

Carrie Fisher Fucking Harrision Ford In 1977 - Consent Violation Or Not?

In her new autobiography Carrie Fisher says she and Harrison Ford spent a few months fucking.

(She hoped he'd buy her a necklace reading "Carrison!")

Anyway some people have been like "Cool!" Others have been like "Duh" but a large number have said "Wait, she was a 19 year old drug addict and he was a 34 year old married man, given those power dynamics there is no way she could have reasonably given consent."

What do you think?

Fuck You - A Nice Way to Talk About Telling You All To Fuck Off And Die

"Giving Clinton shit during the primaries because I like Bernie won't hurt her long term."

Fuck you.

"My state is safe. It doesn't matter if I vote for a third party!"

Fuck you.

"If we elect Trump it will be so bad it will change the system forever!"

Fuck you.

"Never Hilary! There's no difference between the two candidates!"

Fuck you.

"But if Bernie was the candidate he would have won."

Fuck you.

At the end of the day if you voted for anyone other than Clinton you are a piece of shit.

Fuck you.

Fix By Ferrett Steinmetz - Book Review

As Wes Craven would tell you if he wasn't currently debating camera angles with Hitchcock in heaven is that there are rules to a trilogy. In Ferrett Steinmetz's third book of the 'Mancer Trilogy, we can see that he both understands the rules and knows how to use them to advantage.

1. In the third installment a new backstory has to come up that changes the way you interpret the main story.

2. Anyone can be killed even main characters people love.

3. Relationships need to be redefined.

4. What you promised in the first installment has to be delivered in the third - but not in the way you expect.

5. People need to feel a sense of resolution and that it was worth following these characters along for the ride.

All of that happens in interesting ways. And while I knew from the word go that this structure would be adhered to he still delivers pleasant surprises in the way he executes them.

This is probably why Fix doesn't experiment with structure nearly as playfully as The Flux, the second book did. He needed to world build nearly from scratch and that demands narrative discipline. (Something Steve King has never fucking figured out and why his endings often suck.)

It's wonderful the way he makes you look at the main characters in different ways yet still remain consistent with who they are and why we liked them in the first place. A lesser writer (I'm looking at your Patricia Cornwell) would have left you hating at least one if not two of the main characters. He makes you love them despite their flaws and the damage they have created.

All of this leads to the massive showdown in Europe that has been the Checkov's Gun of this series. He takes you there with the narrative logic and instinct of Golden Era Norman Mailer.

I only have one slight quibble with the book (and any review should contain something to bitch about.) There is a scene with teenagers exploring their sexuality During that scene he describes their experience in very adult (not adult in a dirty way) terms. I quite frankly don't believe that two 13 year olds would be that mature about their desires and be able to navigate highly intellectual issues of consent using the type of language they do. They would be acting instead on exploration and instinct. But that's two pages of a long novel so not a big deal.

Overall a spectacular end to an interesting trilogy. If Wes Craven can find a copy in the afterlife he'd approve.
