i am overexposed and nauseous,
fed by the viral stream of humor
derived from gang rape and murder,
genital mutilation and hysteria,

disgusted by my barking laughter
when i analyze the pixels captured
from light reflected off matter,
another interview cropped for cash,

fleeting internet celebrity,
and the systematic desensitization
of an entire generation raised
without the notion of consequence.
i might extend this.

I love the message behind this, especially as I recently had an argument with some of my female mountain-biking friends. They wanted to do projects to raise awareness of the women's side of the sport, to get more women to realize it wasn't just for the guys and hopefully snag some sponsors. I was completely happy with the idea of it, but they wanted to primarily get attention using pictures of scantily clad girls riding bikes, etc. I couldn't be a part of that, because what's the point of demanding to be taken seriously if we can't even take ourselves seriously? Anyway, I love this poem and the language used in it.

i am not a woman and usually leave the resolution of feminist issues to women (i am a feminist but a woman's voice means 100% more than mine in any discussion of female issues) but that one is interesting, b/c while the objectification of women in media is a huge problem, the fact that it's women making the campaign could also bring up that what a women is wearing has nothing to do with her substance as a person, and i often see bikers (male and female) scantily clad, especially when it's warm out.

so much middle ground, idek.

more specifically, it's in regards to a bunch of local news clips that have gone viral, and as a result, have gained more notoriety than the larger story they represent because it's easier to watch a funny video about an old black man saying "you know something's wrong when a pretty white girl runs into a black man's arms" and laugh than it is to read about the three women who've had their lives utterly destroyed. i've recently encountered a few people who are only familiar with the viral clips, and it was. rather disheartening.
