Crushing on Jehn and Pop Noire

Laurie Anderson, Big Science

America is almost unique in the civilised world for forcing pregnant prisoners to undergo childbirth cuffed and shackled
In 2007, a 17-year-old girl called Cora Fletcher was charged with retail theft. Over a year later, after she missed a court date, she was sent to the Cook County jail, in Illinois. She was eight months pregnant at the time.
During a pre-natal check-up at the facility, her baby appeared to have no heartbeat, so she was sent to the county hospital. As the medical team tried to induce her, Fletcher claims that both her hands and both her feet were shackled to either side of the bed. Only when she finally went into labor, three days later, was one hand and one foot released. It’s hard to imagine a more crucifying way to force a woman to try to give birth.
Sadly for Fletcher, there was no payoff for the trauma and humiliation she was forced to endure, as her baby was born dead.

The benefits of daydreaming

So it’s not loaded stadiums or ballparks
And we’re not kids on swing sets on the blacktop
And I thought at 15 that I’d have it down by 16
And 24 keeps breathing in my face
like a mad whore 
And 24 keeps knocking on my door
Like a friend you don’t want to see 

Oldness comes with a smile
to every love given child
Oldness comes to rile
the youth who dream suicide

Pg. 522 of 766, The Second Sex. Simone writes on marriage:

Conjugal slavery is ordinary and irritating for the husband; but it is deeper for the wife; the wife who keeps her husband near her for hours out of boredom irritates him and weighs on him; but in the end, he can do without her more easily than she him; if he leaves her, it is she whose life will be ruined. The big difference is that for the wife, dependence is interiorized; she is a slave even when she conducts herself with apparent freedom, while the husband is essentially autonomous and enchained from the outside. […] it is the masculine code, the society developed by males and in their interest, that has defined the feminine condition in a form that is now for both sexes a source of distress.

As long as she still has to fight to become a human being, she cannot be a creator.
