I’ll Talk About Sex in My Shows Whether You Like It Or Not, Mister.

Every single time I do a storytelling show and talk candidly about my sexual experiences (or raw or vulgar or however you want to put it), there’s always, without exception, at least one white man, usually a young entitled one, who will come up to me after the show and say “you know, if men talked about sex the way you do, they’d never get away with it.” Well men do. All the time. Go to a stand-up show sometime and listen to endless mysgenistic  bullshit, usually by newer comedians but pros too.  And then watch almost every single movie and tv show out there and realize that most of them will be talking about sex thru the filter of a man’s experience, fantasies, or ideas (the writers, the exec producers, the director, the networks).  So yeah, I’m glad I shocked you with how brutally honest i am about sex and no, I’m not sorry for speaking on behalf of women who rarely get represented in entertainment. I’m loud and proud baby. Deal with it.

The Brown University graduation ceremony ends with the university president tattooing this across your shoulder blades.

It does take a while.

This is smart and real.

You guys know about vampires? … You know, vampires have no reflections in a mirror? There’s this idea that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. And what I’ve always thought isn’t that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. It’s that if you want to make a human being into a monster, deny them, at the cultural level, any reflection of themselves. And growing up, I felt like a monster in some ways. I didn’t see myself reflected at all.

Shot my first rifle this weekend. I was supposed to try to kill prairie dogs (They aren’t dogs btw. They’re rat- like creatures in the mountains). But I can’t kill anything but flies and Mosquitos so I shot at a log and missed every time. Still felt like a badass though.
