I have enough ennui for weeks at a time, unless moonlight takes me by surprise in the quake of my underwear playground. I'm constantly undergoing a process of personal dissolution in the wake of modernity. Lack of motivation, sleight of manual coordination.

if the X chromosome is absolutely necessary for a fetal formation to further pursue human development, then why has the common vein of argument in popular rhetoric embraced the Y chromosome as the genetic frontier?

why does man-made scientific rhetoric honor the Y chromosome as the almighty gene-changer when it is in fact rather an expression of a diminishing gene showcasing the very few hyper-focused traits of its wonder? why are women sidecast in a biological reality where their genetic history ordains them the gatekeepers of a natural world?

and then i remember that the patriarchy is a 2000-year-old 12-year-old mega-allele who grew up to embody the general horizon of the world’s most obstructed things.

"I’m embarrassed to say this, but I’ll say it. I’ve had a really hard time finding work, so I’ve been living with my grandmother. And she’s told me recently that she doesn’t have the money to feed me. So I’ve been eating at my friend’s house. I go over there, and I’m too embarrassed to ask for anything, but his dad always insists. He says: ‘Why aren’t you eating? Please, eat!’ This has really caused my idea of ‘family’ to widen. I’ve learned that your family can be anyone."
