You're The Catcher in the Rye!

by J.D. Salinger

You are surrounded by phonies, and boy are you sick of them! In an
ongoing struggle to search for a land without phonies, you end up running away from
everything, from school to consequences. In this process, you reveal that many people
in your life have suffered torments and all you really want to do is catch them as
they fall. Perhaps using a baseball mitt. Your biggest fans are infamous

Hi, Adam here.

I just wanted to reply to your comment on Any_Bodied_Men but was banned.

Here is what I wrote:

I do understand what you were saying. But this does not pertain to my life or circunstances at all.

I was misunderstood and talking about something completely different. Most of the men I have known in immediate and life and family have been handicap, gay, mentally ill, homeless or in very many ways downtrodden in fact having less advantages and privelege than the women in my life. I am just one personal circumstance.

I wasn't going into the ways that most people view the world which is very materalistically. They value money, privelege, power and wealth and I don't, therefore I do not think of those things are privelege at all. I think of things like being able to have children or being able to not work and live the party life like my niece or sister-in-law as priveleged and certainly there are alot of women that are more priveleged than men. It is circumstancial and before we lived in a patriachial culture, culture used to be matriachial. It always changes and flip flops.

I consider saying that men are priveleged as a big insult because it's insulting but I didn't have to go off on certain tyrades certainly.

It doesn't help that I recently had a nervous breakdown and was drunk for several days writing some things that are obviously out of it. I am going through getting on mental health disability at the moment and working with a therapist.

Thanks for the comment.
