The Cutthroat Diaries

Kim Barnes, author and angler, channeling a little Izaak Walton and dreaming of tight lines over white pages, blue waters.

After the rain.

“Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you’ll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way.”

“Writing requires courage, audacity. I’m not suggesting that there is something heroic about writing but I do believe that to commit words and ideas to the page demands something of the writer. Whether fiction or nonfiction, most writers are baring some part of themselves. They are making themselves vulnerable because the writing demands it.”

DEATH TO TRANSPHOBIA

I regret writing this card, it was a mean, cheap joke. We took it out of the game a while ago.

thanks! I wish that more people in comedy realized they could just, uh, do this, and not throw a big fucking stink about it, and go on to make more jokes that are good instead of bad. It is strange that so many people seem to imagine that a simple and sincere apology is a difficult or terrible thing to give.

Cards Against Humanity is a group of people writing immensely offensive joke prompts and punchlines for a living, and if they’re collectively a better person than you are when it comes to being called out on offensive language and jokes, you should really reconsider your behavior.

AMEN TO THIS.

"Game of Thrones is a show that openly casts a lot of porn stars , former and current, in auxiliary roles because it needs actresses who are comfortable with nudity. [Sibel] Kikelli is often included in articles about this even though that life is more than a decade behind her and she’s been through plenty of trauma because of it.”

Why Can’t We Let a ‘Game of Thrones’ Actress Move Past Her History in Porn?

I’m not sure this is the right question…
