The faithful of the cult of Tantra regarded sexual intercourse as the essential rite of initiation enabling them to accede to knowledge The two principles Shiva (male) and Shakti (his wisdom embodied by the female) merged in the couple and transcended the sexual embrace

Some of us ‘social justice warriors’ are actual warriors.

 So how where were you deployed? Iraq, Afghanistan or Somali please. Tell me if you are a true warrior, because you strike zero fucking fear in me.

I got a bronze star for valor in the Arghandab.  I was the senior 18D on my ODA out of A Co, 1/3 SFG.  I’m trans.  I looked a little different then.  Now kindly shut your fucking mouth.

Currently on view at New York City’s Last Rites Gallery, Donato Giancola and Fred Harper’s respective solo shows take viewers into strange worlds influenced by science fiction and fantasy. Donato Giancola’s “Silent Tragedies” is a rich series of oil paintings set in a distant realm where mechanical meets Medieval. Painting with a filmmaker’s eye, he depicts his protagonists in pivotal moments of their adventures. Fred Harper’s show “Virus Like Us” takes viewers into a megalopolis where biomorphic shapes become architectural structures (H.R. Giger appears to be a big influence). Harper attributes his interest in strange cityscapes to the culture shock he experienced when coming to New York from a small Pennsylvania town. Both shows are on view through October 4, so check them out while you still can.
