The Demystification of What?

posted by on February 25 at 11:27 AM

Jen’s post reminded me of the brilliant Fleetwood Mac-meets-Joy Division g.f. I had in college.

At this ancient time in the history of the world, a very trendy word on college campuses was “demystification.”

All the punk rock feminist grrls talked about demystifying this and that. Of course, this and that invariably meant the patriarchy. You know, we had to expose the lie of the power structure.

However, my Fleetwood Mac-meets-Joy Division girlfriend thought this tactic ceded too much power to the power structure.

We all had radio shows. Hers was called: The Demystification of What?

I’ve always liked that.

The things we'll do in college to get laid. Those things didn't work so well for me.

Funny, I had a radio show in college too. Now that I know how much certain KEXP dj's make, I'm thinking I should have ditched architecture and stuck with the radio gig.

Great...thanks again douches! How many times do you want me to get fired because of that pic? "NSFW" tags, please!

Yeah, Jen, stop posting NSFW images above the fold.

Just because you're hungover doesn't mean you have to do that ...

You're all belly aching at the wrong party. If the image that Jen posted is NSFW (and I don't see why it is), you should complain to your work.

"Hi, Ms. HR Rep, it's Bill over in R&D. So, I occasionally look at this one local weekly's blog during work hours, and they occasionally show pictures of naked people because they can't be bothered to use a cut, for some reason. So, y'know, I was wondering if we could loosen up the regulations on looking at naked pictures online. How about it? .... What? But Josh Feit thinks it's OK for work! Why won't you listen to him?"

I don't have to worry about NSFW things, but, that picture was definitely NSFW. And not because I am a prude about naked pregnant ladies, but because naked pregnant ladies are objectively NSFW.

The three favorite words of today's pseudointellectual bullshitters are paradigm, dichotomy, and juxtaposition.
