i have realised...

that of all the things i hate in this world (and believe me, there are quite a few), i hate pseudos more than any thing else. pretentious people try to be dishonest to themselves. that makes them both dishonest, and stupid. and attention craving. and horrible and intolerable in general. and this stupid department is chock-full of pseudos. bloody.

in defence of lancelot and guinevere

Texts like The Quest of the Holy Grail gets on your nerves at times. why this extreme misogyny? why are women always portrayed as evil temptresses? why this incessant hankering after chastity and virginity? why is lancelot made to feel guilty because he loved a woman? and why is it guinevere's fault only? if lancelot hadn't copped elaine's cherry where would galahad, our model of chastity, come from? pray tell me?
and what did they think? these stupid monks? that we have nothing better to do than to lay traps for innocent knights? trying to distract them form their holy quests and giving them hard-ons at most inappropriate moments? stupid gits, this misogyny is all sex gone sour...believe me...just because they couldn't get it up anymore due to lack of practice. maybe their dicks shrivelled up and fell off, and so they took to this pleasant pastime of woman-bashing. the wife of bath hit the nail on the head methinks.
abstinence is not a virtue, honestly. if you don't want to do it, don't do it. don't pretend that you are doing the world a favour...its your choice, nobody is forcing you to be a virgin. its not even like vegetarianism, where you can at least claim that you are saving animals by not eating them, and thats a good thing to do. if you are not having sex who the fuck cares? god certainly doesn't. what kind of a religion portrays love as sinful?
Disclaimer: this is a feminist rant. please don't give me a thesis on the history of carnal love in vedic times or whatever....
