“I am a woman going mad. I am a woman hallucinating. I imagine I am huge, raw, a giant. When I am a giant I go out with my sleeves rolled up and my skirts swirling round me like a whirlpool. I have a sack such as kittens are drowned in and I stop off all over the world filling it up. Men shoot at me, but I take the bullets out of my cleavage and I chew them up. Then I laugh and laugh and break their guns between my fingers the way you would a wish-bone.” —From Sexing the Cherry, by Jeanette Winterson (via literarypiano)
So it seems that talk of The New Niceness is somewhat overblown.
THANK FCK FOR THAT!
