It happens: Asia Argento NSFW Edition

Like she was not already a bombass superfly lady in her own right, she is also director Dario Argento’s daughter. I said goddamn, Asia Argento. You had me at buon giorno. Haters to the left!

A confession: I feel like this picture represents my attitude toward women up until recently: a lot of masculine posturing, deliberate naughtiness with a subsconscious eye toward alienation, and tightly concealed feminine anxiety (keeping your feelings secret from a woman is virtually impossible, and this is mainly terrifying to me — I feel that the sheer dress represents this vain and futile attempt to conceal my very real girly core, which is just as sensitive and emotional as all-git-out and I shudder to admit makes me as vulnerable as any other chick on the block). But I’ve been on this new quest to strengthen my pre-existing female relationships—I have close female friends without whom I could literally not live, yet I still insist that women don’t get along with me; clearly this is false or else is based on residual hurt from some distant past that I need to just plain get over—and hopefully forge some new ones, too.

I’m trying to overcome my shyness around women and be less of a geeky tomboy, or at least balance that trait, and to stop pigeonholing 51% of the world’s population as likely to dislike me. I am guilty of reverse discrimination: by assuming a girl is not going to “get” me or like me, I am not only doing my sex a terrible turn, but I am also depriving myself of the opportunity to meet and learn from a new person. So I am working on this.

    I have some chick issues, I think. I’m not too girly, and I’ve never been one for the catty crap. I like things to be up front and not have behind-your-back psychological warfare. I don’t think all women are like that, but some are, and I’ve always felt that men are a little simpler to deal with. Less B.S.

    That being said, I do have good female friends and I don’t tend to think women will dislike me. But, I do get wary when making new female friends.

    It’s a tough situation. I’m trying to figure out myself, and, by extension, all women. Like, I feel like step one of this process of self-audit is identifying my overwhelmingly apparent characteristics (e.g., biological traits) and figuring those out, as part of figuring out where I fit in the world. You know? I agree, men tend to be more direct. Open hostility: if you want to learn to be more sneaky, just watch the ladies! haha

      I really like the self-audit idea. This post is funny because I just read it at a time where I had a new chick issue, and so it is very apropos. I could probably use some self-auditing, at least in this area.
