    may be a defense mechanism. As in, we all know the system's fucked, but we don't care and we wouldn't know what to do about it anyway, even after somebody like Meteor provides us with a diagram.

    Speaking of which, this is a fantastic diary MB, thanks for writing it.

      i think our culture's penchant for jokes about "bitches" and prison rape have far more to do with our seeing the act of the strong violating and dominating the weak as funny and admirable. i wish i could agree that it is a defense mechanism.
