“"Women are the niggers of gender," the email said. "If you killed yourself, I wouldn’t even fuck the corpse."
I blinked at my phone, fighting simultaneous urges to hurl my phone across the room in anger and cry. Later that day, someone texted me my address — telling me they’d “See me when I least expected it.”
I haven’t been out to my car at night by myself since January 2nd.
destroy the idea that biological families are more valid than other forms of family. destroy the idea that your parents/sibilings/extended relatives have an inherent right to be a part of your life if you dont want them to be
what do you find interesting/fascinating about junkies? particularly female ones.
Only junkie girls! Junkie dudes are just like whatever, you guys have William Burroughs and Luke Davies and HST and Kurt Cobain etc etc etc. Dudes don’t have anywhere near as much to lose from being open about their drug use. It’s like that thing Courtney Love said about how the guy will be seen as a sensitive tortured genius and you’ll be seen as a junkie whore. It’s why I think Cat Marnell is so amazing and to a sort of lesser extent Lesley Arfin and Elizabeth Wurtzel and I’m betting that when I finally read Marianne Faithfull’s autobiography that’s sitting on my bookshelf she’ll have some awesome shit to say too. Women who are open about their drug use (especially heroin but other drugs too) are fucking crucified compared to men which I think makes them much more private about it. Men can write and have already written honestly about their drug use, I doubt many of them have anything new to say but women do. Women who are junkies in my experience have much more insightful and interesting thing to express about it. I mean I think that women’s voices are always 464262452 times more interesting than men but especially when it comes to drug use, and especially if it’s not recovering/rehab type writing.
you know when you’ve had an argument with someone and u cant stop thinking about it later on.. like grrrrrr and i have to see this person again soon and omg i hate this why do i care? like how do people just not give a fuck?
