Hot momma-on-son action--with tongue! (30 July 2009)

As an anthropologist, I feel compelled to correct Tennis on the part about the incest taboo. Every culture has an incest taboo, but how incest is defined varies from culture to culture.

Ok, now on to this poor wife: she's poor because she doesn't have much affection coming her way in her life, and if she did, she wouldn't know how to handle it.

Just about every person has lips, and the way her husband uses them to kiss his mother probably isn't the same way he uses them toward her. She should know that and embrace it. It kinda reminds me of the time when parents explain to a child that many different kinds of love exist (i.e. love from parent to child isn't the same as romantic love between parents). Well, lady, different kinds of kisses exist, too!

And as many previous letter writers have written, she should seek some professional advice about her jealousy issues or about being ‘weirded out’ by her husband's behavior before ever bringing it up to him. (daugherofeli, response to post, Cary Tennis, “My husband kisses his mom on the lips,” Salon, 29 July 2009).

re: "Every culture has an incest taboo, but how incest is defined varies from culture to culture" (daughterofeli)

How incest is defined does vary from culture to culture. How true. Letter Writer, If you should happen upon other truths you find shocking owing to your evident naivety concerning cultural variety and meaning assessment, like if in fact it turns out your husband comes from a culture where every once in awhile moms put lips to penis, not just to mouth (different kinds of kisses! yay! blessed-be the glory and the wonderfulness!), please, too, go see a therapist and get yourself straightened out.

Please don't be thinking being an anthropologist means becoming a child-abuse apologist. It's true; but it's not their primary concern: They exist to catch sane people like you up.

Too late -- WE SAW your boobs

I think we're mostly familiar with ceremonies where we do anointing. Certainly, if we can imagine a context where humiliation would prove most devastating it'd probably be at a ceremony where someone thought themselves due an honor -- "Carrie," "Good Fellas." "We labored long to adore you, only so to prime your hope, your exposure … and then rather than a ladder up we descended the slops, and hoped, being smitten, you'd judged yourself worthless protoplasm -- a nothing, for letting yourselves hope you might actually be something -- due to be chuted into Hades or Hell." Ostensibly, nothing of the sort occurred during Oscars 2013, where the host, Seth Macfarlane, did a number featuring all the gorgeous Oscar-winning actresses in attendance who sometime in their careers went topless, and pointed this out to them. And it didn't -- not quite. Macarlane would claim that all obscenity would be directed back at him, for being the geek so pathetic …

Discussion over the fate of Jolenta, at the Gene Wolfe facebook appreciation site

Patrick McEvoy-Halston November 28 at 10:36 AM Why does Severian make almost no effort to develop sustained empathy for Jolenta -- no interest in her roots, what made her who she was -- even as she features so much in the first part of the narrative? Her fate at the end is one sustained gross happenstance after another... Severian has repeated sex with her while she lay half drugged, an act he argues later he imagines she wanted -- even as he admits it could appear to some, bald "rape" -- but which certainly followed his discussion of her as someone whom he could hate so much it invited his desire to destroy her; Severian abandons her to Dr. Talus, who had threatened to kill her if she insisted on clinging to him; Baldanders robs her of her money; she's sucked at by blood bats, and, finally, left at death revealed discombobulated of all beauty... a hunk of junk, like that the Saltus citizens keep heaped away from their village for it ruining their preferred sense of themse…

It might not have been worth it, Lupita

This is how Lupita Nhyong'o describes the shooting of the whipping scene in "12 Years a Slave":  And being there was more then enough to handle. "The reality of the day was that I was stripped naked in front of lots of people," Nyong'o said. "It was impossible to make that a closed set. In fact, I didn't even as for it to be a closed set, because at the end of the day, that was a privilege not granted to Patsey, you know? It really took me there. It was devastating to experiencing that, and to be tied to a post and whipped. Of course, I couldn't possible be really whipped. But just hearing the crack of that thing behind me, and having to react with my body, and with each whip, get weaker and weaker …" She grew quiet, and sighed. "I mean, it was -- I didn't practice it. It was just -- it was an exercise of imagination and surrender." Lupita was trying to become as close as she could to the actual Patsey, out of fidelity, apprec…
