  •  Um, this isn't exactly what I had in mind. (15+ / 0-)

    I do kinda like the writing style of this guy, but I don't think this is the type of stuff we need on this site. It's certainly not what I was proposing last night.

    Just wanted to clear the record since my name was brought up!

    It's not bad writing, but it isn't something that should be here. I don't want to read about "reluctant" women getting "rammed." It's inappropriate for this site.

      I can see how this works:  what makes it "interesting" is the "adult" theme of adultery and the dramatic tension associated with it.

      But, y'know what?  

      If a story doesn't hold up without sex & violence, it's a shitty story to begin with.  Even if the violence is glossed over, like the "passing references" to rape in this diary: a few words written in a casual tone, but make no mistake, they stand for a house of horrors.  

      If a writer has to hook readers by their sex hormones and adrenaline, they don't have that much going for them in the first place.  

      The easiest thing to do with humans is push their instinct buttons at the lowest level of their brains.  "Lowest common denominator," all the way down the phylogenetic scale to insects.   Cheap thrills like cheap calories, lacking in substance, having no nutritional value, and causing the mental equivalent of obesity.

      NO thanks.  

      Diarist deserved to get banned for treating rape as something casual and thereby acceptable.

      IMHO diarist also deserved to get banned for treating adultery as something casual and thereby acceptable.

      And also IMHO diarist deserved to get banned for being a lousy writer.  The world is overpopulated with lousy writers, we don't need any more of them here.  

      "Minus two votes for the Republican" equals "plus one vote for the Democrat." Arithmetic doesn't care about their feelings either!
