“I am not here to entertain straight people.”
Sarah Schulman

“You have to notice the truth in order to be able to avoid it.”
Sarah Schulman, The Mere Future
tags: truth

“It takes two to tango” isn’t even true on the dance floor. One person can do a lot of evil all on his or her own. But the Theory of Mutual Blame arose sometime before Doc was even born. Perhaps it was a takeoff on Freud’s seduction theory or the more generic practice of blaming victims for being alive. Its origins were unclear, but no one had ever had to take full responsibility for their own actions since.”
Sarah Schulman, Empathy
