On Curiosity & Discourse, or What I’m Doing Here

Although I’ve done a number of things in my life, from acting to academia, curiosity has been a constant. I’m a curious person. I like to think.

Here are some things I think about in no particular order:

  • Beauty
  • Culture
  • Psychology
  • Coping Mechanisms
  • Dissociative Disorders
  • Feminism in the 21st century
  • Gender Relations
  • Religion
  • Atheism
  • Spirituality
  • Buddhism
  • Books
  • Literature
  • Smut
  • Academia
  • Human Behavior
  • Media, Social and Otherwise
  • Parenting
  • Sex
  • Sexuality
  • Sexual Dynamics
  • Sex as Conversation
  • Gender Normativity
  • Writing
  • Ethics
  • Morality
  • Sociopathy
  • Empathy
  • Power Dynamics
  • Control
  • Deviance
  • Innocence
  • BDSM
  • Virginity
  • Femininity
  • Masculinity
  • Performative Identity
  • Performative Sexuality
  • Personal Identity
  • Gender
  • Adaptation
  • Relationships
  • Justice
  • Existential Quandaries
  • Other Minds
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Cultural Analysis
  • Literary Criticism
  • Guilty Pleasures
  • Food

  • Integrity
  • Recovery
  • Duality
  • Art
  • Discipline
  • Doubling
  • Non-Monogamy
  • Incest
  • Tea
  • Things Other People Say That Are Terribly Clever

This isn’t a complete list, but it’s close – for now. There’s always room for more.

More importantly, it covers what I’ll be thinking and writing about here –  thinking being the operative word. Conclusions are comforting, but they can be dangerous, which is why I’m more interested in discourse than in answers.

While I’m sure I will come to and posit many conclusions in my posts, my aim is to do so with an open mind, and to form as little attachment to them as possible. In this way, I hope to maintain a fluid perspective that will allow for discussion, rather than the parroting of ideologies. Ideologies love a parrot. I’ll think for myself, thanks very much.

And I invite comments. I want to know what you think, too. Otherwise, there’s little point in tossing more words into the void. Thinking. Curiosity. Discussion. Running the gamut from A to B, to paraphrase Dorothy Parker. This is the fun stuff for me. I hope it is for you too.
