"Entretanto, hay que hacer un esfuerzo por relacionar de forma realista lo que creemos que es el sexo, lo que decimos que es el sexo y lo que hacemos con el sexo. Indirectamente, eso es lo que hacen los pornógrafos. Reconocen que en lo tocante al sexo, la única norma es la ausencia de toda norma. Por lo tanto en una sociedad civilizada la ley no debería operar en el ámbito del sexo salvo para impedir que se 'importune' a la gente contra su voluntad". .. "Habla mucho del pornógrafo de hoy el hecho de que, intencionalmente o no, sea él quien mejor nos informe acerca de la extraordinaria variedad de la respuesta sexual humana. A su manera nos muestra tal como somos, como esos espejos de feria que, aun cuando distorsionan y se burlan de la figura humana, nunca dejan de reflejar la realidad". #Pornografía de #GoreVidal. #SexualmenteHablando. #Courbet #ElOrigenDeLaVida.

As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.

Needed something heavy to flatten out the items I'm scanning. Gore Vidal is heavy. I highly recommend this one -- perfect time for it. #gorevidal #gorevidalunitedstates #jenkinsstudio (with props to Aggro Rag and Skate Fate) @moon.babes.of.bicycle.city #gsd #garrydavis

Before #DebateNight on Sunday, dig into this Sundance Archives recommendation: BEST OF ENEMIES is a 2015 documentary on the explosive 1968 televised debates between the liberal #GoreVidal and the conservative #WilliamFBuckleyJr. Check it out for an informative and highly entertaining look into the early days of televised political discourse and how they have shaped the modern presidential debates.

In the summer of 1968, television news changed forever. Dead last in the ratings, ABC hired two towering public intellectuals to debate each other during the Democratic and Republican national conventions. William F. Buckley, Jr. was a leading light of the new conservative movement. A Democrat and cousin to Jackie Onassis, Gore Vidal was a leftist novelist and polemicist. Armed with deep-seated distrust and enmity, Vidal and Buckley believed each other’s political ideologies were dangerous for America. Like rounds in a heavyweight battle, they pummeled out policy and personal insult—cementing their opposing political positions. Their explosive exchanges devolved into vitriolic name-calling. It was unlike anything TV had ever broadcast, and all the more shocking because it was live and unscripted. Viewers were riveted. ABC News’ ratings skyrocketed. And a new era in public discourse was born.

I am Myra Breckinridge, whom no man will ever possess. The new woman whose astonishing history started with a surgeon's scalpel, and will end... who-knows-where. Just as Eve was born from Adam's rib, so Myron died to give birth to Myra. Did Myron take his own life, you will ask? Yes, and no, is my answer. Beyond that, my lips are sealed. Let it suffice for me to say that Myron is... with me, and that I am the fulfillment of all his dreams. Who is Myra Breckinridge? What is she? Myra Breckinridge is a dish, and don't you ever forget it, you motherfuckers— as the children say nowadays.
