I wonder if Mara would deep-throat a penis of cheese.

fickle floridian: deep-throat a penis of cheese.


I have no idea what this means. What is a penis of cheese?

fickle floridian: I wonder if Mara would deep-throat a penis of cheese.


See, I look at what teens today wear, and how they act, and I think "WTF are their parents doing?" And apparently the answer is "absofarkinglutely nothing". If that was written on my daughter's wall, she'd have been painting it within an hour, and discussing boarding schools in VERY remote locations the hour after that.

I think you might need to review the slides. I thought Mara made it very clear that she would never do such a thing. As to whether Dave has a ripe ass, I think her opinion was to affirm that sentiment.

Did I farking stutter? She already said she would NEVER do that. Isn't that what you want to hear? Or are you one of those mandatory 'deep-throat a piece of cheese' kind of parents who think everybody needs to live life your way? Let me tell you something buster, not everyone finds cheese that appetizing. Nor should they. That's the beauty of life: everyone has a different vision of their perfect world. And that's OK.

Ah, but look again -- it's clearly KATE who placed that statement on Mara's wall. For all we know, Mara will take cheese penii and edam right down the the base on a daily basis. I'd see it as, perhaps, a warning from Kate to Mara's uninvolved parents, that she's making the rounds, and by now there's no telling how many of them she's bleu.

Besides, my larger concern is the other statement. As everyone knows, Dave's ass is saggy, like a half-filled sack of Canadian milk.

I'm willing to bet 99% of this thread's readers have never even thought about young girls trying to make their way towards their own identity while growing up in successive generations of Palestinian refugee camps, much less actually seen a young person's bedroom in such a place. For that reason alone this thread will be a good thing.

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.
 
2012-06-03 03:16:52 PM  
One of them actually had a map on the wall. One of them had an interesting looking grid of photos. While I wouldn't be too thrilled with manifestos crayoned everywhere, a little Kilz and a little paint and it's all better.

Basically, I'm okay with this.
 
2012-06-03 03:17:19 PM  
The girls I see here in Rania Matar's pictures look so brave to me. They are brave in their selfhood, which they might not even know they are showing so boldly.

Want to know what keeps women down?

I didn't read the article, but if it fails to show the room ankle deep in clothes and other assorted junk it is not like my teens live. I have considered a tape recorder that says "CLEAN YOUR ROOM!" on auto replay.

Not that I look at amateur nude pictures of TEENS online, but the general tendency of amateur pictures I've seen online can be summed up with the phrase "white women be livin' in filthy rooms".

I would suggest "Beauty Redefined". It's a SG collection that, IMHO, is very much worth a purchase.

Not to judge the young lady, but it does seem apparent to me that she is probably going to grow up to be one of those women who wear sensible shoes. And make coffee table books like this.


and isn't this an old story? I swear I've heard of this thing before. I believe it was on NPR, a year or so ago.

you've got a cottage industry. there are thousands of different conditions under which a teen bean grows. country of origin, political climate, religious background, type of schooling, foods, clothing, holidays - you name it. somehow i feel a series like this could be successful if aimed at young teens, or about young teens for even younger readers. you can make worthwhile bank with a book series contract.

Number 5 seems to be suffering from cellulitis or some similar condition in her right leg...

It is one of the most shattering experiences in a young man's life when he awakes, and quite reasonably says to himself: I shall never deep throat a penis of cheese......

/WTF? I mean, that's a perfectly laudable attitude for a young woman to have but I struggle to see why it's necessary to inscribe it in blood on the walls of your bedroom.
//is it some kind of exclusion clause to manage expectations? (I will not be held liable for the loss of any coats or bags left with the coat-check, Cars are parked at the owner's risk, I will not deep throat a penis of cheese......

Only a guy would think that from looking at that room. Very few women (in my personal experience, and verified by the culture at large) like to decorate their space with photos of guys. What do you see on the cover of magazines meant to appeal to (straight) men? Attractive women. What do you see on the cover of magazines meant to appeal to women? Attractive women.

Yes there have been genocides and much suffering in the world. In my opinion, raising the education and literacy level of your own country is the ultimate solution. I've seen ads about starving children in Africa since I was a kid and there are still starving people in Africa because the majority of people there are ignorant and uneducated. And we continue to elect incompetent leaders here in the United States because most Americans are functionally illiterate. I had to send my daughters to private schools to ensure they would be successful in life but most people aren't able to do that. If people really cared about the daughters in the world they would ensure they were properly educated and prepared for life.
