Friends of the blog, I have invented another series! (I know, I’m making up series faster than I’m making up posts. I’ll work on that sometime.) This one is for awesome quotations, with discussion to follow in the comments section. Today’s is from Junot Diaz, an author I’d never heard of until friend of the blog Kelly posted these interviews with him on her Facebook.
I think the average guy thinks they’re pro-woman, just because they think they’re a nice guy and someone has told them that they’re awesome, but the truth is far from it. Unless you are actively, consciously working against the gravitational pull of the culture, you will predictably, thematically, create these sort of fucked-up representations. –Junot Diaz
