I dunno, man.. Eip.

Not really. Well maybe it is... I'm not sure

Oh, now I understand it. Some people here were thinking that the girl with all the female fashion models on her walls was gonna hang drywall for a living. LOL.

The bedrooms of most high school girls I knew (at the time) had posters of cute animals, fashion shots, a van Gogh or two, horses, and maybe the Cure if they were angsty or Bob Marley if they partook of the herb. Possibly a boy-band cutie. Rarely any beefcake.

In fact, I don't know of any time I've seen a woman's room decked out in beefcake shots like an inverted version of some fratboy's dorm room. Probably former fratboys think that way. And we all know what I think about fratboys.

Their rooms are pretty much 90% bigger than the one I ever had growing up (aside from the refugee girl). Also; major props to the girl who rather than focusing on being pretty and hipster-esque went for aiming to be a better, stronger person.

The wife and i had a threesome with a nineteen year old a couple years ago. I discovered then I'd rather have sex with someone that knows what the fark they're doing.

I had no idea that hairdressing was so critical to the Palestinian experience...

"I stopped going to school to learn hairdressing. I don't want to work. I am engaged to get married. I said yes and I will learn to love him. He is nice to me. I will get veiled when I get married."

Damn. I know it's very common around the world, still...

When you think of how horribly most marriages turn out in the west, we really can't judge.


Yup, I can judge. I'll make my own dumb mistakes, my parents can make their own. And marriage in her world denotes ownership, not partnership.

It seemed oddly appropriate.

When I was being photographed, what was running through my head was how the models on my wall are the people I strive to look like. I was wondering how we define beauty and where I am on the scale of beauty in relation to the pictures on my wall. Am I good enough?

I'm going to need some more information before I make up my mind.

It's a lot of fun, don't get me wrong, I actually had more staying power since my attention was focused on something besides how good my penis felt. Made the experience much more enjoyable.

My mother was pretty strong headed about what I was "allowed' to put up in my room.

I had a Reseviour Dogs poster (only "edgey" thing she'd allow), some cute animals and probably a Christian Slater pic or 2 (swoon!) by the time I graduated HS.

During the summers, I took classes and boarded at colleges. That's where I got to be more creative. I did walls of ads that I'd pull out of NY Times Magazine or Architectural Digest or whatever.

My fave was a pictorial they did of celebrities made up as strong historical females (Queen Elizabeth, Cleopatra, Rosa Parks, etc) that I made into my bed's "headboard".

I don't consider myself a strict person, but if Mara were my kid, I'd make her re-paint her room ASAP.

last time I had anything close to the chance was when I was 33, with a technical virgin. I imagine it's a lot like playing a pickup basketball game for the first time years after high school. You still have most of the moves, but you don't remember the pace being that fast and later on, your back hurts

Guess what's on the cover of a bunch of men's magazines? Muscular guys. Because most of those pictures are meant to be wish fulfillment for men as much as beauty magazines are wish fulfillment for women.

I would never come to that conclusion, because a number of femenists have made it very clear that those attractive women on the covers of their magazines are there to incite men to rape women.

Cause painting a room once they leave is sooo hard. I had a bunch of friends back in high school who got to paint their rooms however they wanted, do pretty much anything they wanted to their rooms. Why? Cause, it's just paint/marker/whatever. It's not they're putting in a new window. Also the parents never pulled the "my house" crap, it was the family's house and each member had a place in it.
