The porn we look for

I am suspicious of this “really want” stuff. It is well known that many women have rape fantasies without “really wanting” to be raped. Some of the men who fantasize about boys or sheep while having sex with women really want boys or sheep, and some really want to have sex with women while fantasizing about boys or sheep. It’s always more complicated.

Thanx to Metafilter

Plausible

Darko Suvin said that sf is “cognitive estrangement.” Robert Anton Wilson said it’s “straight-faced bullshit.” I’m sure there are subtle differences between the two definitions, but that’s not important now; it’s a tension between opposites. SF that emphasizes the straight-faced part has traditionally been called “hard” sf, but that term has become entangled in controversy. So how about plausible science fiction?

Thanx to File 770

Jeremy Corbyn doesn’t have a cult. He has a fandom.

ADDers. (I seem to be much more an ADDer than an Aspie.)
