procrastination entry

“*You cannot poke yourself.”

~ Thus sayeth the ever wise facebook.

       And another thing, Alexander the Great (as he didn’t call himself) was not gay. Nor was he bisexual. Or straight, for that matter. The Greco-Roman world did not have sexual orientations. They simply defined the act of sex as the act of penetration. If you were sexually attracted to someone, you penetrated them, and vice-versa. Gender was irrelevant. This lead to the role of penetrator being traditionally “male” and the role of penetratee being traditionally “female” (for obvious anatomical reasons) but… that didn’t mean that someone who was one gender couldn’t play the role of the other. Stop complaining about the portrayal of sexual orientation in movies about people from this time period. There was no sexual orientation to portray.
       Ok, back to my reading which is due tomorrow and I didn’t do any of it all vacation because I was busy doing… uh.. Hallie, mostly. There was some Myst IV in there too.

    please explain to me what the facebook is, i’m not comprehending it.
    as far as the alexander things goes, right on. i find it funny that this issue has become bigger than the movie itself, and is getting so much press. as they say, they say, there’s no such thing as bad press so i guess it will only benefit the film. when colin farrell was being interviewed, one of the 1st questions was about the ‘gay kiss’ with jared leto. it’s funny how over time society has become more conservative in many aspects of life.
    i’m so glad you had fun with hallie bro!

      The Facebook is an online community for college students and alums. It’s sort of like Friendster, you can leave people messages and view how your friends all connect, and meet people.
