Diaries of a Little Warrior: A Sheep Among Wolves

leave a comment »

Dear Diary,

Today we read The Lamb. What in God’s name was that guy smoking and where can I find some?

What a massive pile of disingenuous orangutan manure.

Whatever happened to Shel Silverstein and asking questions that really matter like “where the hell does the sidewalk end?” I miss 5th grade. Middle school is a damper to my spirit.

Maybe old William and his wooly little beast can sit on that and spin—very delicately, of course.

In lieu of pointless poems, I wrote a little poem of my own in detention today.

I call it “Little Dog:”

Little Dog,

What spawned thee?

I know- a Daschund and a Corgi.

I love you anyway, Little Dog O’ Mine

Thou art short and stumpy with the speed of a tortoise,

And the heart of a large warrior cat of some sorts—

A Saber-toothed tiger perhaps. Those are bad ass.

Suck it, Blake.

 

Coach McMillen finally assigned me my own seat in detention, right by the window which is just fine by me.

 He misspelled “detention.” What a dumbass.

 When I corrected him he said not to worry about it, but I am worried that my young mind is being molded by a gym coach with a 4th grade reading comprehension.

That is enough for now; I hear the garage door opening. I’m sure Mom will have make much unnecessary ado over the bad marks on my progress report. Apparantly I suck at following directions, paying attention, staying in my seat, speaking without raising my hand and to top if off I am (allegedly) insubordinate,  disruptive, and quarrelsome.

As predicted, they’ve send me like a sheep in the midst of the wolves.

I’ll report back tomorrow.

Love,

            Allison

MTV- Advocates of Safe Sex

leave a comment »

Way to teach safe sex, MTV!!

MTV administered this photograph  in a strategic, yet highly ineffective attempt, considering it was pulled from the airways almost immediately after its release, to heighten social awareness on the topic of safe sex to a younger generation. Kudos to MTV for reinforcing male violence in pornography, the lethality, fear and worship of the phallus while simultaneously presenting themselves as good Samaritans and advocates for sexual safety.
Allegedly, the advertisement team responsible for the release felt that pornography was the only way to deter the youth from engaging in risky sexual behavior that could potentially lead to STD’s and teen pregnancy. At a glance, the gun merely represents the dangers of unsafe sex, comparing the risks involved to a loaded pistol aimed right at the crotch. Clever, huh? A more in depth analyses might compare the gun to the ultimate phallic symbol of violence, ownership, and subjectivity as it’s lethal and something to be feared. It might compare the spread-eagle female model’s position to an open invitation. The gun replaces what is missing, or lacking rather, in femininity and reinforces the masculine gender role of violence.
I find it difficult to fathom a photo of a perfectly manicured woman with her legs spread an inspiration for birth control and a repellant for any heterosexual male. If MTV felt the need to use graphic images, would not a picture of an STD suffice? It seems that an add inducing a gag reflex rather than a pornographic ideal would be more effective.
