    So my brother. The one who kicked me out of our apartment when he got insanely irresponsible in life and thus I had to move to Texas for a long while.

    He was going to the hospital today for an appointment to setup a series of tests to figure out why his hearing is the way it is and what can be done to fix it. What I got was a phone call just a few moments ago informing me he's being taken to a special facility for 72 hours because he's on suicide watch.

    At face value that sounds extreme. But my brother is more manipulative than these people think. He's BAD at being manipulative when you see how it happens and how he contradicts himself over time. But I dunno. At any rate, even if this is real, I am really, really unsure of how I'm supposed to feel about a guy who is my brother but also kicked me into the most miserable phase of my life.
    Speaking from someone who's 3/4ths family members are total raging assholes, always better to find family among good people than good in your family.

    That was my philosophy for a while. But over the last few years my surrogate family (friends, mentors, etc) have been abandoning me for various reasons.

    So maybe I just have asshole in my blood and I don't see it, even though I try REALLY hard to avoid all the shit my family does.

    Dude, how did you miss this story? Lets see the reasons he hates me:

    1. I grew up poor. Not quite white trash but poor.
    2. My politics.
    3. My sexual orientation.
    4. That I was raised Catholic which I didn't think was a thing any more but apparently it still is in his mind.
    5. That I'm a Yankee.
    6. That I've been married once already.
    7. That I'm taller then him.*

    *This is conjecture. But he's short so I think we can safely assume it.

    Throw him into a bullpen during the rodeo.

    The whole mindset and history behind Sweet 16/Quinceañera is really disturbing to me, and nothing moreso about that than it's still a thing.

    Always kinda odd when I go to the Galleria on a Saturday and have to remind myself that's not a group of kids coming from their prom.

    It just seems like such a gross condoning of oppressive objectification and sexualizing of young girls.

    But, I mean, that's definitely a thing that people do.

    not to apologize for the sheer grossness of quinceaneras but the tradition is based on the idea that a 16 year-old girl is now a woman

    it's exactly the same thing as a bar/ bat mitzvah

    It can be, depending on how religiously-tinged the ceremony is, but Bar/Bat Mitzvahs tend to be much more about the person's transition into the religious community.

    In that way, S16/Quince is much more akin to debutante balls, being little more than a patriarchal expression of permission given to another person for control of their own body, performed in front of a crowd of their closest friends and family.

    i mean that is kind of the anthropological basis of all coming-of-age ceremonies i think

    this person is an adult => this person has agency over their lives => this person has bodily and sexual agency

    the thing i hate about quinceaneras is that they're incredibly crass, what with the preening and the pinning of money on the dress and all of that.

    but i think the anthro subtext is nearly universal.

    that still sounds awesome imo

    huh, I have never been exposed to any of this sweet16/quinceanera sexualization thing. It's always just been a catchy name for a birthday party to me.

    So new gym that's like 3 blocks from my house

    kinda spendy ($70 a month after taxes etc.)

    doesn't have the equipment I want (boxing / wrestlin' stuff, so most gyms don't have it)

    but it is super clean and has really nice facilities and new machines and fucking 19 inch tablets attached to basically everything and free wifi

    and its 3 blocks from my house

    so overall lookin' forward to it, opens in about a week

    time to unsoft myself.
