Men Defining Rape: A History, Rape of the Sabine Women, by Giuseppe Cesari. Dirk Huijssoon/Fotopedia
Oh, right: what I mean to say is the evocative romance of art and items and of wanting and shopping, of building a fleeting piece of identity around those things, is for girls.//I see this thing a lot I think of as a “cuntbrag,” also known as the “I’m not like other girls,” which is where you position yourself as better than them based on some perceived female fault of theirs while you’re trying to impress a guy, or maybe another girl. I do this sometimes, without knowing. It’s pretty bad news.
