Suheir Hammad: Not Your Erotic, Not Your Exotic

Don’t wanna’ be your exotic/Like some dark, fragile, colorful bird imprisoned, caged in a land foreign to the stretch of her wings/Don’t wanna’ be your exotic. Women everywhere look just like me/Some taller, darker, nice than me but like me just the same/Women everywhere carry my nose on their faces/My name on their spirits.

Don’t seduce yourself with my other-ness/My hair wasn’t put on top my head to entice you into some mysterious, black voodoo/The beat of my lashes against each other ain’t some dark, desert beat/It’s just a blink/Get over it.

Don’t build around me your fetish, fantasy, your lustful profanity to cage me in, clip my wings. Don’t wanna’ be your exotic. Your lovin’ of my beauty ain’t more than funky fornication, plain pink perversion. In fact, nasty necrophilia.

Because my beauty is dead to you/I am dead to you.

Not your harem girl, geisha doll, banana picker, pom-pom girl, pum-pum shorts coffee maker, town-whore, belly dancer, private dancer, La Malinche, Venus Hottentot, laundry girl, your immaculate vessel, emasculating princess/Don’t wanna’ be - not your erotic, not your exotic.


Suheir Hammad is a Palestinian-American poet, author and political activist who was born on October 1973 in Amman, Jordan to Palestinian refugee parents and immigrated with her family to Brooklyn, New York City when she was five years old. Her parents later moved to Staten Island. (x)

I don’t think “4th degree burns” are a real thing. Props!!!!!!!

They are, actually!
I don’t know why I’m typing excitedly, because 1st-3rd degree burns involve the destruction of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. When you reach a 4th degree burn you’re done with skin and scorching away muscle.
In other words that Peter grew skin back and developed scar tissue is itself a medical miracle. You don’t grow skin back from these burns. 
…I’m doublechecking and I’ve just learned:

Fifth and Sixth Degree Burns
Fifth and sixth degree burns are most often diagnosed during an autopsy. …  It is unlikely that a person would survive this type of injury but if a miracle occurred then amputation of the affected area would be necessary. (x)

Apparently there’s a whole two more degrees I was unaware of.
It doesn’t say it on that page but the idea is people are water. For a person to evaporate to the point their fat burns off and their muscle burns, let alone their bone, is a gruesome lot of exposure to fire/heat
And then there’s this:

Surgeons measure the area of a burn as a percentage of the body’s total skin area. The skin area on each arm is roughly 9 percent of the body total, as is the skin covering the head and neck. The percentage on each leg is 18, and the percentage on the trunk is 18 on the front and 18 on the back. The percentage of damaged skin affects the chances of survival. Most people can survive a second-degree burn affecting 70 percent of their body area, but few can survive a third-degree burn affecting 50 percent. If the area is down to 20 percent, most people can be saved, though elderly people and infants may fail to survive a 15 percent skin loss. (x)

The medical report suggests Peter was initially burned across his entire body. The medical report makes sense of why his werewolf healing factor didn’t cut it. It appears to have repaired the ‘superficial’ damage to the skin but was stymied on the destroyed muscle and extent of the injury.
Congratulations, Peter. For once I do not find your pain hilarious. Nerves slowly propagating through damaged skin, severe inflammation causing catastrophic strain on the internal organs as the body fills with pro-inflammatory cytokines, healing cracked and broken flesh ‘cell by cell’ because there’s no water and insufficient blood pressure to irrigate the body anyway due to the inevitable and near-fatal shock/circulatory collapse…
Peter really is not playing the pity card trying to describe an unimaginable experience to the people around him who all assume he’s being a drama queen. It’s not ‘just’ the burns but the faltering, overstressed organs that get you.

So imagine all of that happening, and your body dealt with it by trapping you in your own head, incapable of moving or reacting. A person might go mad.
But then, take it one step further, because you’re not alone in your head - there’s a bestial force in their with you. How many full moons did he spend in those beds while his wolf positively raged at the moon? How much did his pain and frustration inflame that beast, until it was practically throwing itself at the walls of its cage (his psyche), howling to break free no matter the damage?
Trapped alone with such a primal force, is it any wonder that his psyche subsumed itself beneath that beast? That it effectively folded up, curled up in the fetal position and let the beast rage, collapsing in on himself until only the beast stood any chance of commanding body and mind?

Wow. Peter’s condition was even worse than I imagined. I can totally understand why he came out of that wanting to kill everyone responsible.

Season 1 makes a fuckton more sense now.
I also think he is STILL affected by it because of the trauma of the whole fucking situation is STILL with him. Which might be why he is so hellbent on being an Alpha again because he doesn’t want to be weak like he used to be before the fire. He doesn’t want to be anyone’s victim anymore.
Which is why he has gone to the other side of the spectrum and instead of being a victim he is the perpetrator because that is the safer and better option for him.
Fuck, now I’m having Peter Hale feelings.

That’s right! I remember an article or show from my childhood explaining how some burn victims had to be kept in plastic housing, not just for staving off infection as their layer of protecting skin tissue grew back, but also because their nerve endings were left completely exposed. This means that any sort of pressure change in the room, say opening a door, would cause the victim excruciating pain. You know when you stab a sensitive part of your body, like your finger? Or say you have sensitive teeth & drink something extra cold? Now imagine that over the expanse of your body, times a million.
This is why I’ve had a serious fear of burning and surviving for most of my life.
On a less serious note, we’ve all been looking for evidence of where Beacon Hills actually is and 95351 is a zip code in Modesto California. This is actually more inland (not 15 miles away from the beach as stated stated this season when Meredith walks to the sheriff’s station) and less north than I would have expected.

He’s a wealthy young businessman with a dark secret.

He’s ridiculously good-looking.  He’s been involved with dozens of women, but because of his dark secret he’s hurt some or all of them.  He doesn’t really care who they are; when he meets them he already has a fantasy that he wants to project on them and make them fit into.

He’s self-assured and charming, but a little bit socially awkward. He has many acquaintances and business contacts but few close friends; you get the sense he just isn’t interested in people he can’t use.

He goes on a lot about how troubled he is—the book is even named after the way he describes his perceived mental problems—but he never acknowledges that it’s really his wealth and social power that allow him to get away with what he does.

IN DEFENSE OF BAD PERVERTS

IN DEFENSE OF BAD PERVERTS is what I’m going to call this rant 

because I am a bad pervert. Okay. So.

There is this domination. There is this thing latent in the culture. Where — men get away with this bad behavior towards women. Objectifying and sexualizing them(us). Getting away with violence against them(us). This background dehumanization which is just itself violence.

I understand that it is good to seek out consent-minded people, to become a person who cares about consent. To become a person who values their(her) own consent. Values their(her) own boundaries. I understand these things intellectually. 

But until I create that world and find people who can create that world with me I live in the world of domination, dehumanization, sexual objectification and violence. I live there. Me and all the women and the men and the others in my culture. All of us. And I completely understand that sometimes we can’t comprehend sexuality outside of that. I want sexuality to move past that, to get equal, to get fair and safe for everyone. But it isn’t, and saying it is doesn’t make it so. Saying it should be doesn’t make it so.

And in “Real BDSM Culture” there are problems. So often consent-seeking is theater, is plausible deniability, hides abusers. Saying 50SoG misrepresents Real BDSM Culture is a fucking lie. Yes, people should be able to be safe, be able to find people into what they’re into and do what they do safely but. We don’t live there. We don’t. We don’t. We still have to make that world. Don’t make things worse by pretending we are already there.

And. Hey. People. Its okay for people to have Christian Grey as their fantasy. It’s okay for people to have Patrick Bateman as their fantasy. It is okay. It is even okay to seek out guys like that. Seek out guys like my Mr Unconsensual Choking. It is okay to need to work through the violence you live with. It’s okay to eroticize it, it’s okay to want to put yourself at risk. Its okay to want to learn what you can endure. It’s okay for you to want exactly as zero checks on that experment as there are on your regular unsafe life.

I wish you wouldn’t, and I wish you wouldn’t feel like you needed to, and I wish you had people to keep you safe but. Those desires are okay.

THIS IS WHAT IS NOT OKAY

IT IS NOT OKAY TO BE CHRISTIAN GREY. IT IS NOT OKAY TO BE PATRICK BATEMAN ALL THE RESPONSIBILITY IS UP NOT DOWN. jesus christ leave women alone forever.

Fucking seriously, just. leave women alone forever.
