Goddess Found


"We read to know we are not alone."

-C.S. Lewis

"Humankind cannot bear much reality."

-T.S. Elliot

"Before 18, nobody has anything in their pants; after 18, they have everything in their pants. It's ridiculous. The truth is that from birth on we are, to one extent or another, a fairly sensual species. There isn't a person alive who doesn't like being caressed. Children masturbate as early as 1 1/2 or 1 year old. They do it spontaneously and without any thought that there's anything evil about making themselves feel good. That's a sensual experience in their lives, one that should remain entirely the property of the child, as it were. Nobody is going to argue, last of all myself, that it should become involved to any extent in any adult experience of sexuality. But the truth is that Homo sapiens is a sensual species. I think all species are, to one degree or another."

-Jock Sturges, on the arbitrary division of people and their bodies into sexualized adults (over 18) and supposedly asexual children (under 18).

The question really is: Should tasteful, non-exploitative erotic photography of adolescents be allowed? Is such a thing even possible?

My favorite music:

The Cure
comments: In truth, it used to be my favourite band when i was a young thang. Not saying i'm OLD or anything...
Depeche Mode
comments: Another band of my youth. Did i have some repression issues or what?! Considering i was the most naive, innocent, seemingly goody two shoes messed-up girl!
Top 100
comments: Now i usually just leave the radio on Mix 99.9 and enjoy the latest tunes. I'm really into actually listening to the words in songs...a novel idea, eh?! Yes, yes, i'm Canadian. And proud of it.
Loreena McKennit
comments: Can't forget this lovely and beautiful artist from my own area!

My favorite movies:

Shadowlands
comments: A good watch for some interesting theological issues. I'm a fan for true stories too.
The Mists of Avalon
comments: I love the way it delves into paganism and christianity.
Stigmata
comments: Do you see a theme developing?

My favorite authors:

Vivian Vande Velde
comments: Woah. Her target is young adults but her stories never cease to impress me as an older, young adult..teehee.
Nora Roberts
comments: She was the first 'romance' writer i ever read. This reading happened to take place during a stay at the local hospital for serious self-esteem issues. I like that her stories have substance and i can learn from her characters.
??
comments: I'm still looking for a good author of stories that use heroines over a size 8 and without all the 'perfectness.' Sheesh. You'd think that our society valued youth, thiness and 'perfect' beauty!
Jodi Picoult
comments: Second Glances is the most poignant, touching, thought-provoking, astounding book i have ever read!
Laurell K. Hamilton
comments: Sometimes you need a violent change of pace...

The new design should work on phones much better than the old one, and pages in the members area are being converted to the new look one by one, so they can be tested.
