If people with an even number of eyelashes got murdered for it a lot and stuff I'd be like "Seika's word is kinda weird-sounding but it's probably important to her to have a word to refer to the oppression she experiences as an even-eyelashed individual so I won't make fun of her for it". Note that this scenario assumes that I have an odd number of eyelashes and I don't know if that's true or not
Having words is good. Being able to identify myself as an even-eyelashed person, and to communicate about my resulting oppression, is very much something I'm in favour of. This is precisely why it's important not to have an absurd, badly-constructed name for it which restricts the ability to do so.

Lace

You're gladly able to identify yourself as whatever you like, but black women using the term misogynoir to describe the intersection of sexism and racism doesnt mean they identify themselves as Misogynoirs, just putting that out there for you

There's a pretty obvious brand of stereotyping and discrimination aimed specifically at black women based on the fact not that they are black nor that they're women, but that they are black women. So no.

The forms here are weird. (equal opportunity forms) They list "Hispanic" as a separate entity from all other races. And don't allow you to select hispanic and "x" other race.... so people see you and go "Huh? You don't look hispanic." They literally list all the other races as "race (not hispanic)". Sometimes they drop the mix race option.

I might be 1/16 some sort of native american but my genetics are big bunch of "???" due some of my ancestors being polygamists.

Racism and Reverse racism really annoy me... since probably almost all of us has the genetics of all the other races despite skin color. Grouping all "white" people together bugs me too since some are minorities where they live & are discriminated against. Saying its ok because their ancestors were slave owners is wrong; many weren't and were from backgrounds where their ancestors were also slaves.

Sorry perhaps I worded it poorly. But sometimes anger, about the situation, is taken out on people who had nothing to do with past or current racism/crimes towards others. People who support and relate the people suffering and try to treat everyone equally. My relatives were starved out of their homeland, had their property stolen by their oppressors, struggled to survive and then had to deal with said oppressors trying to sell said property back. Is any of that taken into consideration? No.
I'm sorry that I'm a little upset over being passed over for jobs and promotions because I'm not a certain race. Nor do I like what is happening to other races because some other idiots can't look past skin color or bury their bias. I just hate all forms of racism, ok?

But I would describe "it" more. And what "it" is (ex. a wide open field , a cavern, a school hallway, etc.) or who is seeing "it". The more descriptive, the more interesting as long as it doesn't drag on. Ex. All my eyes could see was over-powering darkness.

I just hate when people care about things in general. It makes me uncomfortable no matter what the issue is.
There are definitely times where that is also the case with me. I don't usually talk about such things because it starts to feel like hot coals are being flung around.
Everyone was so casually discussing it so I thought I'd join the discussion but apparently it soured without me noticing.


That's kinda what it is. Just with tons of eyes for some reason.
I'm not saying it is wrong. But more description makes more of a punch. Especially for an intro sentence.

Sorry perhaps I worded it poorly. But sometimes anger, about the situation, is taken out on people who had nothing to do with past or current racism/crimes towards others. People who support and relate the people suffering and try to treat everyone equally. My relatives were starved out of their homeland, had their property stolen by their oppressors, struggled to survive and then had to deal with said oppressors trying to sell said property back. Is any of that taken into consideration? No.
I'm sorry that I'm a little upset over being passed over for jobs and promotions because I'm not a certain race. Nor do I like what is happening to other races because some other idiots can't look past skin color or bury their bias. I just hate all forms of racism, ok?

Let us bury this topic before we start strangling each other and ruin friendships.... I'd rather ruin friendships over Mario Kart.

I went hiking with my father and younger sis today.

In retrospect it might not have been the greatest idea seeing as I'm still sick and all that.
That my father forgot to bring some water definitely didn't help the matter.

So anyways, some 12 km in, about 2/3 of the way up, I fainted from exhaustion and dehydration.

Nice.

That is probably the major reason why.

Cities are generally fine but it starts to get poor when it comes to rural places. The companies don't think it is worth it to expand towers unless a place exceeds a certain size. And my current city isn't small. They only have towers along the one major freeway that travels through north Cali. Away from there, it starts to really drop.

This is nearly as good as VALE SUPERBE CVNNE, though I suppose it's more a uale to the superba mentula.


Adieu! faint-hearted instrument of lust;
That falselie hath betrayde our equale trust.
Hence-forth no more will I implore thine ayde,
Or thee, or man of cowardize upbrayde.

My little dilldo shall suply their kinde:
A knaue, that moues as light as leaues by winde;
That bendeth not, nor fouldeth anie deale,
But stands as stiff as he were made of steele;

And playes at peacock twixt my leggs right blythe,
And doeth my tickling swage with manie a sighe.
For, by saint Runnion! he'le refresh me well;
And neuer make my tender bellie swell.

That's... probably the point. Plenty of women do go through abusive relationships believing their abuser cares for them, and I imagine the song is a reflection of that - which is smart, and something you should appreciate.

Oh please. Lana Del Rey has a history of making songs romanticizing/celebrating abusive relationships. Whether a victim of domestic violence or similar finds merit in this particular song is definitely possible, as that's completely their own to decide, but that doesn't mean I can't feel conflicted about the incredibly high amount of her songs romanticizing abuse; "Ultraviolence" being no exception. The fact that this song is about a woman believing her man only hurts her because he cares for her is in no way a particularly smart meaning you have to explain me, as the lyrics make it glaringly obvious. And at the same time, while this song so obviously explores her ordeal, it never breaks out of the circle and calls it into question - thus is only able to celebrate instead of challenge. The glorification of abuse is something I just happen to not appreciate.

You could certainly argue otherwise, depending on whether or not you consider a single work as being its own device or existing within the author's works, their attitudes and opinions providing the background for interpretation within a literary scope. If you discredit the author as being an authority - or, indeed, any indication of influence in a work - you can't simply state that because the author has written similar works with a certain theme, that this work also shares that theme. I don't know Lana Del Rey, and I haven't heard any of her music - not consciously knowing that it's hers, that is. Any number of her songs presenting a certain viewpoint on abusive relationships doesn't inherently demand that, then, any other songs she writes about abusive relationships also condone them. Even then, there can still be interpretation of those other songs that comprehends them in different ways than supporting their presupposed intent.

It's not a fundamental requirement of a work to express a bias or clear opinion in any given direction. Rather, regardless of the surface-level message of a work such as Ultraviolence, it's ultimately up to the reader, listener, viewer - and so on - to interpret the work and find a meaning behind it. That's how literary criticism comes to be, and arguably there also fundamentally can't be a right or wrong interpretation, just interpretations that are more easily justified. A work doesn't have to outright challenge its central subject in order to, within interpretation, oppose it. It's perfectly reasonable for a work to describe a situation without taking a direct stance on it, instead allowing the individuals experiencing the work to figure out their own meaning based on its presentation. In terms of a song specifically this could come in the emotion of the song, the tone of the instrumentation, or the delivery of the singing - things that don't have anything to do with the written lyrics themselves. Or, you could even draw your interpretation from the song within its lyrics and presentation as a meta-textual relation to real life and experiences.

The song has no need to "break out of the circle" perhaps as a reflection of the nature of abuse itself as cyclical and self-sustaining, or to show an abusive relationship in a satirical or ironic way. Ultimately, interpretation is up to the listener, but hopefully the most immediate interpretation is to hear the lyrics and the song and to think something to the effect of "this is really messed up!" as opposed to being told that the situation presented in the song is wrong and simply agreeing. There are plenty of ways to interpret a piece, and to defend one interpretation requires starting off by either fully accepting the author's influences and biases or cutting the interpretation off from that and viewing the piece as existing solely as its own creation. Rather than holding on to one understood meaning, it's good to approach a work from a different perspective, trying to find the interpretation that makes the most sense.

Ultimately, though, that's just my interpretation, and unfortunately I don't have much else to say other than that. Doing what Leo does is hard, I don't know if I want to try it again.

Like, here. We'll cut the chorus because honestly I don't care and because it makes it a lot easier as a post.



He used to call me DN
That stood for deadly nightshade
Cause I was filled with poison
But blessed with beauty and rage
Jim told me that
He hit me and it felt like a kiss
Jim brought me back
Reminded me of when we were kids

He used to call me poison
Like I was poison ivy
I could have died right there
Cause he was right beside me
Jim raised me up
He hurt me but it felt like true love
Jim taught me that
Loving him was never enough

We could go back to New York
Loving you was really hard
We could go back to Woodstock
Where they don't know who we are
Heaven is on earth
I will do anything for you, babe
Blessed is this, this union
Crying tears of gold, like lemonade

I love you the first time
I love you the last time
Yo soy la princesa, comprende mis white lines
Cause I'm your jazz singer
And you're my cult leader
I love you forever,
I love you forever

With his ultraviolence
(lay me down tonight)
Ultraviolence
(in my linen and curls)
Ultraviolence
(lay me down tonight)
Ultraviolence
(Riviera girls)
I can hear sirens, sirens
He hit me and it felt like a kiss
I can hear violins, violins
Give me all of that ultraviolence


Wait a second, I'm actually not going to cut the entire chorus because the last part cross-references!


Life is awesome, I confess
What I do, I do best.
You got nothing, I got tested
And I passed, yes.

Lay me down tonight in my linen and curls
Lay me down tonight, Riviera girls.

I fucked my way up to the top,
This is my show.
I fucked my way up to the top,
Go, baby, go.

Go, go, go, go, go,
This is my show.
Go, go, go, go, go,
This is my show.

I'm a dragon, you're a whore,
Don't even know what you're good for.
Mimickin' me's a fuckin' bore
To me, but babe.

Lay me down tonight in my diamonds and pearls
Tell me something like I'm your favourite girl.

Need you, baby, like I breathe you, baby
Need you, baby, more, more, more, more.
Need you, baby, like I breathe you, baby
Fuckin' need you, baby, more, more, more, more.

Lay me down tonight in my linen and curls,
Lay me down tonight, I'm your favourite girl.

Need you, baby, like I breathe you, baby
I need you, baby, more, more, more, more.
Need you, baby, like I breathe you, baby, ah, ah.


Choruses after the first cut. So;

1: 'DN' is something that Jim is probably more or less right about, and Lana (whose name I'll use as the speaker's for convenience) is self-conscious of this. Part of what's mixed in with abuse in this case is guilt over being a 'bad girl' which partially allows Lana to justify abuse to herself.

2: Comparing loving someone to being under a cult leader trying to create heaven on Earth is not a ringing endorsement.

3: what the fuck is "crying tears of gold, like lemonade"?

Rather than holding on to one understood meaning, it's good to approach a work from a different perspective, trying to find the interpretation that makes the most sense.

Definitely agreeing with the part that I highlighted, the rest I left out 'cuz thats just you trying to explain me how media, in this instance song, criticism works. Lana's intention of making "Ultraviolence" is fine as she has every right to artistically express love-violence-relationship experiences. The way her work is perceived through others is irrelevant for her creation of it at first because it has every right to exist. That doesn't mean that I can't take a critical stance on the song's social discourse (reality of abusive relationships, the damaged girl "its so messed up but beautiful" trend of her other songs, how it's perceived, etc.): Allowing Lana Del Rey to retain artistic integrity on her songs while staying critical with their discourse is a contradiction that has to be endured for critical analysis.

So it's completely fine for me to say that I dislike how the song doesn't actively call the beauty of the relationship, which comparing Jim to a cult leader is part of, into question.
