A Soft-Handed Predator Masquerading in Manliness

cut and paste:
How we treat animals tells us something about how we treat one another.

But trophy hunters like Trump Jr. are another breed — soft-handed predators masquerading in manliness. In February, Junior gave a speech in Reno and auctioned himself off on a “dream hunt” in Alaska, to the Safari Club International, a trophy hunting club that pushed for the changes in the Last Frontier State. The Humane Society described the Reno event as a gathering of people who “celebrate the senseless killing, buying and selling of dead animals for bragging rights.”

manufactured manhood
lily white pasty soft hands
needs to convince himself
he really is a man, and since
he can't envision a version that is kind
and giving, he can only come up with
killing helpless animals as a way to prove
something to himself and his cowardly buddies
pathetic
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

A snap of the fingers. Or in the case of Funkadelic’s Free Your Mind And Your Ass Will Follow—recorded in one day, with the whole band tripping on LSD—a single ageless lizard-blink of the third eye. “This half-life is ending,” O’Toole writes. “Either the outward show of democracy is finished and authoritarianism triumphs, or the long-denied substance becomes real.”

The minds and asses still unfree. The long-denied substance. It’s now or never.

Keep on mending, never be able to say how grateful I am for your jottings here on studio eight. I am desperate for good stuff to read to keep me busy so I don't spend so much time doomscrolling.
The Atlantic Magazine comes to my rescue now and then.
A guy on studio eight once told me to "man up". :lol: I hope he is okay, he was from Portland
