I always thought it would be fun to make like a little Fieldnotes book of useful charts and graphs that you could carry around in your backpack to settle arguments. This would go in there.

Enlist in the Army of Lovers

erikaonfire:

What do you have to do to be part of the Army of Lovers? It’s simple. Give one Valentine to one stranger. Here’s how:

1. Messaging: keep it clean and simple. This isn’t a love match. This isn’t a “call me maybe.” It’s not a flirt or a sexytime adventure. It’s also not a downer or an insult. It’s…

"The interior scenes in the Battle School—and later in a deep-space forward base—have that antiseptic, too-clean veneer that screams “soundstage set.” I thought Ridley Scott solved this problem years ago with Alien and Blade Runner. You’ve got to dirty up the future a little."

"A man’s implicit self-esteem is hurt by a romantic partner’s success, the authors propose, because he automatically interprets her success as his own failure—a byproduct of men’s competitiveness. Another possibility: Her success challenges the gender stereotype that he should be relatively more competent, strong and intelligent than his female partner. A third explanation offered is that the man’s thoughts about his partner’s success trigger a fear that he is not good enough for her and might lose her."

When a Wife/Partner Succeeds, Men Lose Self-Esteem 

Many men know they’re supposed to want a partner who is as brilliant and successful as they are. Few men actually do. This reminds me of Kathleen Gerson’s book The Unfinished Revolution, which I reviewed back in 2009. When she interviewed young men and women about how they hoped to construct their relationships in the future, both said they wanted equal partners who had their own fulfilling careers. 

But young men and women have very different backup plans if (or, more likely, when) they are unable to achieve that egalitarian balance. “Reversing the argument that women are returning to tradition,” Gerson writes, “men are more likely to want to count on a partner at home.” […] Young men are not so naive as to think their partner will never hold a job, but when it comes to making the hard choices about balancing work and family, a majority tell Gerson that their wives will be the ones to “shift down” their careers, which the men see as “extra” or “non-essential.” 

And so I’d add a fourth explanation: A woman who is more successful than her male partner also poses a direct threat to the often unspoken assumption that she will be the one to make professional sacrifices when there are tough decisions to be made.

Adventures in Anaphora by Rebecca Hazelton

Martin Luther King used it. Walt Whitman used it. Homer Simpson used it. Obama uses it all the time. Even Mumford & Sons know enough to dabble in repetition.
